Yea, I could see where that would be a problem. I only play M/K, never controller so there's that. I played around with Saints Row The Third with a controller through Steam Link, it was OK, but it's mostly because that whole game is a goof anyway.

I just started playing Grand Theft Auto V. Never played it before. I can tell it has a lot of potential, but I'm not typically a fan of games with a lot of driving that aren't track games. Might have to pull the controller, or at least a driving wheel, out for that one.

Just grabbed Deus Ex (<$1) and Tomb Raider 2013 (<$3) on steam.

Figured someone else might want to grab them that cheap.

Am I irrational in wishing mini-ITX boards got the same support and cool tidbits (rgb/design/aesthetics) as their larger ATX brethren?

Am I irrational in wishing for better performing main boards that don't include such frivolous options as flashing lights and over decorated heatsinks?

Am I irrational thinking that people who buy graphic cards just to scalp them deserve a special place in hell.

Or any high demand item for that matter.

Only if you include the people that pay the scalped prices in an adjacent hell. One doesn't happen without the other.

Played Grand Theft Auto V for about 3 hours over the weekend. I have to say, I don't get the hype that surrounds these games. The driving mechanics suck, and they are most of the game.

I never have quite understood the whole "all or nothing" constant acceleration in these open world games. The designers do actually drive cars right?

It's just not that complicated. Something like forward speed increasing as long as I hold the stick or the 'forward key'. If I let off, the acceleration should stop, but it should maintain speed. If I brake, etc, it should slow down. That would be way more playable.

Your character driving skill will increase the more you drive, at the beginning it does suck, and overall driving in GTA V is so wacky, but it does slightly better the more time you spend on a vehicle.
