Xela the cat is a revamp of a character for Stepmania that I had on my hard drive for a while that I decided to push it out to the net. Compatible with Stepmania 5.0 (If you don’t mind the randomizes instead of actually CHOOSING your character) and of course backwards compatible with Stepmania 3.9.
Ouya Review gaming console – What does it do? How well does it do it?
This is a mirror of a review I did for Industrial Strength Gaming back in July. Part two will be available there shorty.
It’s important to start off the Ouya review with the two greatest questions the military asks of anyone or anything that appears in front their their eyes. Which to answer this call, we will discuss in a two part review. For those who want the TL:DR abridged version of the review I’ll give it to you straight up for this section.
“Pretty console, won’t turn off, crap OS, requires a credit card. But at least they kept their word. And it’s cheap. Part two coming soon! – S”
Chapter 2 of 2 is available to read on Industrial Strength Gaming. Check it out!
The solution you described for bluetooth pairing does not work on PS3 and P3 controllers!
PS3 and the third party “P3” controllers operate a little differently when it comes to their blue-tooth enabling. The first thing you have to do with that model of controller that you hard-wire it into your Ouya (by “hard-wiring” I mean using your USB charging cable that you normally have hooked to your PS3 and hook it from your Joystick to the Ouyas USB Port). By hard-wiring it it breaks any pairing with another PS3 that could be in your house or perhaps a PS3 that is long since separated from the controller as you may have bought this online somewhere.
Note: Upon plugging the PS3 controllers into your Ouya, the Ouya will respectively disable the Bluetooth service on the console and you will loose connectivity with your Ouya Controller.. This is perfectly normal! Just make sure that you can navigate around the menus with the wired connection.
Well, I decided to get the gaming console that sounds like having sex with a crazed canadian girl from the U.P. and reserved Ouya at the local Gamestop because my friend works there and it helps out with his numbers (If you guys know anyone at a gamestop and you want to make their jobs easier , reserve an odd-ball system like an Ouya).
Done with the Pi and onwards to securing an Ouya it has certainly been a while since I posted on my own blog. I guess that happens when your in the Christmas rush and your job relies on the notion that everyone needs their food and drugs. But I can save that for another story.
