Try "Controller Settings" in Big Picture Mode. There's an option to disable the guide button from focusing Steam. I think that should do the trick.

Yeah that was the only thing I found but it doesn't seem to control this, I guess since it is the regular Steam interface and not within BPM.

Edit - Oh, no wait I guess it just didn't save the first time for some reason. Second times a charm I guess!

No, you set the resolution in the launcher, and it's written to the registry. So far, that's standard operating procedure.

The fun part is that the launcher doesn't let you set resolutions higher than 1920x1080, but you can simply write them into the registry and the game uses them.

I didn't expect much from it, and it does seem like a rather basic ARPG/Mousou mashup, but it actually feels quite good to play.

Asia is their primary region for their growing market, and it's a goddamned big on PC. This kinda explain their insistence on keep releasing the game on PC despite severely underperforming on it compared to other (and also smaller) publisher. They can't run on bad or weird port anymore if they want to gain success on Asia PC market.

Nuclear Throne is really tough. It expects arcade shooter proficiency at risk of death. But it feels so good.

If there's ever a study on "gamefeel" I think Nuclear Throne will be one of the highlights. It's really hard to describe in any coherent way, but everything you do in it just feels right. It's really good at drawing you back in--like, you just want to play more, y'know?

Less weird, still weird though.

It just seems so bizarre when there's much older games that have much better scaling, effectively futureproofing them. In this age of 4k and downsampling, it's kind of crazy that they aren't thinking ahead more.

Although in this, the age of Games as a Service, we'll probably need to rebuy them for one reason or another anyways.

I have the same issue with Enter the Gungeon, I can occasionally beat the first boss but then struggle after that. I went through the same thing with Isaac but the huge pool of items kept me coming back until I started improving.

First boss is pretty tame if you've got a clear area to fight, second boss is downright savage, a veritable bullet hell affair, and the third boss is straight-up lunacy that I still have no idea how to tackle. All of them are different kinds of deadly. And 2/3rds of the time I don't get past the second boss, which has stifled my ability to progress.

For myself, my core issue right now is that I don't have a good system for deciding a mutation path, equipment, or a character yet. Like, I really enjoy the samurai chicken but every time I've used him I've had a really dumb, avoidable death because I clipped an enemy, got exploded, or got trapped in a hail of bullets. (It's like that for most runs, really.)

In terms of motivation, there's just enough unlockables and guidance to give you a sense of progress between runs. It's rare that you walk away from one having learned nothing, even if it ends early on. There's some cool secrets and lessons to be learned.

Just make sure to get something with a flawless sensor that is comfortable for the grip you like.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...Zcg/edit#gid=0

This list is out of date, but still a good starting point. The G402 sensor is fine, but I personally found it extremely uncomfortable. Had to return mine in the end.

Mionix, Zowie, and the other Logitechs should all be good.

I've been using a Steelseries Rival 100 for a few months now and I'm quite happy with it, got it for around 35. It has nothing special but works fine and is very confortable to use!

1080p is actually the most commonly used resolution, but higher resolutions are still important for future-proofing.

At some point in the future, the majority of people are going to be using higher than 1080p resolutions. At which point games that don't support it will look like ass.

They simply used a launcher from one of their shitty ports that was capped at 1080p and didn't bother to change a single line of code. That's optimally lazy.

There are parts of Fallout NV that are great. There are just too many issues with the game. Maybe if they just wrote the story and the dialog with an editor would pare down the pop culture, and someone else developed the game with that story, then I'd be all for it. There is a huge discrepancy between the quality of Obsidian's writing and their game design.

My girlfriend stopped me this morning to check out an email from Paypal she'd received about a payment she'd made she didn't remember, wondering if it was a phishing attempt. I did all the checks - doesn't say her full name in the email, email address it's been sent from isn't a paypal.com address, links go to another site - then asked her if she had a Paypal account.

"No."
