Weâ€™re reminding ourselves to say 2016 at the following link.
I need a Steam Controller like I need a hole in my head. Thatâ€™s probably something I thought a long time ago when it was announced. Maybe. Still, itâ€™s been refined and released since then so how far off that statement am I at the moment?
Nate and Dennis both got one over the holidays and Nate brought his into the show this week. Itâ€™s unique and feels perfectly fine in my hands, though Matt had some issue with that. It has my curiosity just to try it out (as almost anything new like this would do – he says as his eyes wander over to the Rift announcement tomorrow), but it still doesnâ€™t feel like itâ€™s replacing a need.
Donâ€™t get me wrong, Iâ€™m not saying itâ€™s crap and Iâ€™m not saying itâ€™s pointless. Iâ€™m saying that for me, right now, there is no hole that this fills. There was never some question I ever had that this controller answers. At least not that I can see, but that can easily change. Iâ€™m becoming far more lazier in my gaming and have both my PS4 & Xbox One hooked up to the TV in the bedroom. If this controller and a Steam Link can put my PC gaming in there with them and allow me to comfortably play all my PC games – then the need may have just been met.
