I installed it and started playing last night. Had to customize the control scheme to match the wasd movement I'm used to, but it's pretty seemless after that. A little annoying that there's no caption option; I've had kids for 8 years now and am accustomed to playing/watching everything with captions turned on.
Inexplicably hilarious to me: the futuristic phone booths on the street in the opening sequence.
Got the new DOOM. (And a Geforce 1070, which is overfrag for this game but should be nice for Witcher 3.)
Every level has a secret that opens up a classic DOOM level.
Got through the first level but only found 2/3 secrets--just the collectibles :-/
I am playing Pokemon Go.
I'm not sure why.
Your kids warped your brain?
Well yes, my daughter is obsessed with all things Pokemon, so when this game came out we both installed it.
The hordes of Pokemon Go players crowding on places look like a merry bunch of zombies to me. With smart phones. A bit frightening and also a bit heart warming.
Blind people and PokemonGo... (35 second video) (One minute if you watch the credits and the promos at the end)
The NES Classic Edition system is a miniaturized version of the groundbreaking NES, originally released in 1985.
Just plug the NES Classic Edition into your TV, pick up that gray controller, and rediscover the joy of NES games.
It features a HDMI out, but the controllers are sadly Nintendo proprietary only. But they fit into the Wii U gaming "ipad".

Met a bunch of folks playing Pokemon Go in NYC this past weekend. Friendly people. It's fun to have some camraderie with complete strangers.
If you search for local businesses on Yelp, they now indicate for every business (such as a restaurant or whatever) whether there is a Pokestop nearby.
It's *that* big.
You know what ... it's a great conversation starter and you get to exchange pleasantries with people out in public. I'm normally not a fan of anything mainstream but I like Pokemon Go.
Well, I'll give you that.
I asked a random stranger in a grocery store if aisle 5 was a pokemon stop, despite not really playing the game. Because I'm peculiar that way.
NOTHING HAS CHANGED!
That was too much! Should have been a cell phone in his hands though...
And now Nintendo is moving away from the full-motion style gameplay of the Wii as well.
So was it just a fad? Have they figured out that most gamers just want to sit on the couch with a joystick?
There has been quite a lot of push on virtual reality in gaming lately. But there's also the HoloLens... augmented reality.
I suspect augmented reality might be more in line with where things are going to go in gaming, eventually, but that damned HoloLens is far too heavy to wear comfortably.
