On this day:

How Do You Control Your Character Movements in PC Games??..

Basically the question is with “What?”.. Do you use the Keyboard Keys or do you have a Separate Controller for your left hand.. When I started playing DOS Games there wasn’t even any “Graphics” involved, just ASCII text.. Yep that was in the early 80’s and looking back the games took sometimes weeks if not months to finish.. Kids today go through a very complicated game in a day or two..

These days we have all kinds of other controllers to make the game play easier.. Which I find a much needed device to own.. I see a lot of the younger generation using the “Letter” Keys and I find that extremely hard to control a character in a First Person Shooter.. When Wolfenstein 3D came out it was the Arrow Keys and the Mouse that controlled all the firing and movements.. That’s how I learned to play until I invested in my “Claw” Controller.. I guess you could remap the keys but I still prefer either the Claw or Arrow Keys to move around..

This also makes me wonder how the younger people get so used to the “Console Controllers”.. I had an XBOX for awhile and I found that controller very uncomfortable, but I guess if it’s what “You Learned With” it probably isn’t that bad, just not for me.. hehe.. If anyone else has an input on this, please leave it in the comments section..

There are some good articles over at “Joystiq” a new Blog Game Site I found the other day while searching for Blogging Sites.. Go take a look…

Seems the latest gaming news over at: “Slashdot Games” is, The XBOX2 & PStwo.. Besides being designated by “Letters & Numbers” instead of the Playstation name it also is suppose to be about half the width and height of the current model.. Which means no Hard Disk and that means trouble for some of the older games.. Check it out for yourselfs before the article gets Archived..

For you Dreamcast Owners here's a "Amiga 500 Emulator" that may interest you..

And for a little HTML news.. I've been hanging out at "W3 Schools" website trying to learn a few things about the layout of my site.. I have to say that is one Hell of a Site!.. Their Tutorials and Examples are First Rate! and make it easier to understand how things work in the code for a website.. As you can see I've been playing around here and doing the usual "Trial & Error" kind of coding..

Next thing I want to do is change the look of the site and then learn a bit about "Java Script" which they also have on the W3 Schools site.. A friend "mmChronic" from "New Links" turned me onto the site and it has kept me busy for days just looking around at all the possiblities of what I could do here..

From my Travels on the Net, the Random Game Site of the Day: Video Games Rule Enjoy.
