Already tried to replace the battery, and it doesn't work for me (unless the replacement I bought was bad too), something's fried beside it, even without the battery the controller gets super hot after 30 min of use.

That sounds extremely unsafe unless you like to get hot hands.

I wouldn't call it unsafe, maybe super hot was not the right wording, it gets hot enough that after 30 minutes of use I get sweaty and uncomfortable.

Edit: I would accept the cable crossing my room, but the hot issue is slowly destroying my will to play video games.

I don't think I've used the battery in my DS4 beyond the first week and realizing how ultra lovely the lifespan is. Just pick up a 10' cable from Amazon or Monoprice or something for cheap, and accept it crossing your living room/bedroom.

I saw a video that made it look like backstep+heavy attack does a jumping attack. Is this true because if it is gently caress yes, the controls for guard break/jumping attacks are so lovely.

Think it's pretty cool they are releasing the same time.

Partly as it works out better for us in the UK but same time is about as fair as you can get in these future steam days.

Well, they tried releasing DS3 on the same day for everyone and Bandai Namco deliberately kicked it along to skew their quarterly reports, so it's nice to know they can get it right when they want to.

I took a quick peek in the faint hope a DS1 weapon I always wanted but wasn't for players was in, and while it's not a cosmetically identical match I know I have another reason to want 32 strength in my future.

I still can't believe those fuckers in DS1 dropped a Greataxe as their second weapon drop, they didn't even use those

Not that I'm super-bitter at Funstock or anything ( ) , but I actually looked at the FAQ that they dispensed when probably all their customers sent in emails to their site support about the date mix-up on Friday.

Funstock DS3 FAQ posted:

Q) When will the keys for Dark Souls III being released?
A) Our pre-load keys will be going on Monday before release UK standard time. There is no specific time for this. But it will be before the launch with enough to pre-load away!

My original estimate was at the release minute. I've now upgraded that to 1 minute before so they technically are correct. Also I'm wondering if they got the short end of a contract stick versus Gamesplanet if they don't get to release until the day of.

This is why I decided to pay the extra 5 and just get it on Steam. Normally I just use cd key websites but I didn't want to mess around with DARK SOULS 3.

I pre-ordered it a month ago, and didn't know about their track record at the time. The announcement for the delay in the pre-load looks to have happened around 2 hours ago as they denied there even was a pre-load all weekend.

Hey all,

I'll be streaming this game Tuesday Night at 10pm CST doing a Milk Shot Challenge.

I'm going into the game completely Blind.

-Everytime I die that's 2 shots of milk I drink.
-If I die consecutively without recovering my souls I have to drink 4 shots.
-If I get invaded and die that's 3 shots NPC or Player.
-Everytime I swear that's a shot.

Also I plan on giving away a free copy of the game for playstation 4 on Friday night. So tune in for sure if you want a shot at that and for some reason haven't ordered the game yet.

Twitch stream can be found here:

Thanks for the about the steam controller.
I have a dual shock 4, but I fried it using a charger with quick charge from samsung so it only works with a cable now.
It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't get so hot after 30 minutes of use. I was thinking abut a replacement for it and the steam thing at 40% off is an interesting proposition.

Steam controller takes getting used to. Using the track pad cause there's no right stick and 20 hours into fallout 4 and I'm now able to aim without adjusting like crazy. Also havent had to change batteries yet.

You absolutely must customize the sensitivity and trackball settings for whatever game you're playing though. Once you get the gist of what all the settings are and how to tweak everything to your liking, it's easy to use.
