So in trying to get this workstation to be usable for gaming, and with my workplace injury, I needed a controller.
PS4? Then I need to get a BT dongle/adapter. The plus is that I have a PS4 controller.
XBox One? Then I need to either get a first gen XBox One Wireless Adapter, or a second gen controller and that would still need BT. There is no plus to this - I don't have a XBox One controller, and the Wireless Adapter is currently sold out locally. It's also getting super bad reviews for dying within a few months.
Stopping by to see if there were some old folks to start playing some games with, but the site seems to be a bit on the dead side...
I'm moving from PS4 to the PC Master Race (I picked up an HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Workstation with an i7-8700 and a GTX 1080), but I'll be playing Destiny 2 on both platforms depending on a friend or two that are staying PS4.
However, now that I'm on Steam, Halo is calling my name! I picked up the MCC during the summer sale, so once I get a controller (workplace injury means no more keyboard gaming) set up, IT'S ON!
It's been a while. Between my disease, forced community service and returning bouts of WoW I only recently came up for air to see what else is going on with gaming. 2017 was all about lootboxes and absolutely deepthroathing anyone who put out a game that didn't had them, resulting in me spending the lowest amount of money on games in years, compared to the budget that I kept for the last decade to satisfy my gaming habit. At least youtubers were able to cash in on the widely carried hate, so there's that.
So back when my XBL expired and I had no desire to give MS more money, I thought my online gaming days were over.
Now, I know how much hate I pitched at Sony, and it's all true, but when all of your coworkers are playing on the PS4, and telling you about all the awesome stuff you aren't getting to play in Destiny... Well, the tide turned and I bought a PS4.
So you can find me playing Destiny 2 once or twice a week in the wee hours of the morning. Now that my coworkers have gone their separate ways, I just do the Flashpoint.
We currently live in a job market where it is becoming increasingly harder to find good jobs courtesy to automation and poor government policy. You need a resume that outshines its competitors, and a university degree is the minimum threshold. There needs to be something more to make yours truly ready for the 21st Century.
