This weekend I tried out playing Morrowind with the Steam Controller for the first time, and it surprisingly worked really really well. I’d say *almost* as good as using a mouse and keyboard. So now, if I feel like playing a game on the TV whilst sitting on the couch, I can choose Morrowind!
As though I needed more reasons to play it 😉
But seriously, it is really good, I just used the default “most popular” controller mapping for Morrowind out there and just adjusted the sensitivity of the “mouse scroll” down. Other than that, I didn’t have to change a thing.
This, after several involved attempts to patch together some sort of homebrewed solution with third party software and only getting it working OK.
Today we went to this really cool noise/drone-and-productivity performance at Little Spot Cafe at 23rd and South Van Ness, where a guy had a whole bunch of modular synths and played while we were able to work on things and carry on conversations.
I sketched a picture of a Dunmer Farmer, as a study for a future comic I have in mind.
I brought my drawing board and paper in case I wanted to sketch people from life – to keep up the momentum from my drawing class – but instead I decided to sketch a character from imagination (as I usually end up doing). However, next weekend I will be able to attend the figure drawing session at Mission and Cesar Chavez next weekend, so I will still be able to keep the momentum going.
Today was the last day of my drawing class 🙁
I’ll miss looking forward to the bike ride and drawing every Saturday morning… and I’m already looking through their course catalog for another drawing class to take, because I do feel like I got a lot out of it.
I see that they’ve announced a digital drawing class that starts in September… I feel like I really need to take that one! Digital drawing software is so powerful and amazing and yet so inscrutable… and I really want to get the hang of it.
In the meantime I feel like I should also take a summer course to keep the momentum going, though.
