Humble Capcom Playstation Bundle

Okay, this is pretty cool that it’s happening, (just like the Humble Nindi Bundle and the Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle), but the content is unfortunately quite old or already common. Since most of the games are PS3 (many of which I already have), and my PS3 is currently unhooked, it’s not super intriguing to me. I will be passing on this one. But here is the extensive list of games!

Humble Indie Bundle 17 (Update)

Update, Aug 23rd

Three rather obscure puzzle games were added: a collection of 3 Hexcells games, Expand, and Regency Solitaire. Can’t say these really interest me so they don’t add anything to the bundle, personally.

E3 2015 Linky Post

I love following E3! If I had loads of time, I’d watch all the full press conference videos. I’m weird like that. Unfortunately, I don’t have that kinda time, right now, so I watch summary videos.

Whichever you like, I’ll update¬†links to both below as they become available and I find them. Full vids wherever I find them, summary vids from¬†Polygon¬†/¬†The Verge, and Youtube / various. Linky breakdowns mostly at Destructoid, when available. ¬†If you have a better quality vid, let me know and I’ll update it.

Using a Gamepad on Linux

General tips and resources I’ve come across. I will update this page every now and then. If a section grows large enough, I will make a separate post for it.

Steam Big Picture

Launch games from Steam Big Picture. A controller you thought wasn’t compatible with a game may actually work. When you launch a game using that controller (via BigPicture), Steam will attempt to send an appropriate button mapping of that controller to the game when launching it. This worked, for example, with LIMBO. Of course, the game has to support this and your controller must be known or configured in Big Picture.

XBox One Controller

Support was added in Linux 3.17. I have yet to upgrade my kernel and try it, but I did pick up a controller when they were on sale with that intention. (I don’t have an XBox One, but the controllers are so nice….)
