Final Fantasy XIV Timers

In the hopes that this may prove useful to someone, have a Final Fantasy XIV event timer. Eventually I might simplify the JavaScript so that it can be used as an embeddable "widget" but for now it's just that page.

Currently it shows the active events (at least, the ones that have been announced) and the weekly/daily reset times. (At least, I think those are the correct times based on what Square Enix has said.)

Evolution Controllers Drone Input Modes

I've bought an Evolution Controllers "Drone" bluetooth controller. It's a very nice, small little controller designed to work with tablets and phones for gaming on the go. To aid with this, it supports a variety of "input modes" that define how it works.

Unfortunately, these are not documented anywhere, beyond the key combinations required to activate them.

So here you go, a table of the modes and what they do, based on the source itself.

PAX Prime 2013

PAX Prime is over. The time to write up stuff will probably be later.

Or never, considering I've yet to do a writeup for PAX Aus.

PAX Australia 2013

PAX Australia has come and gone. I'll try and post some thoughts and stuff later.

It's coming... PAX Australia

It's less than a week away now: PAX Australia! Wait, what?

Oh yes - I will be going to PAX Australia.

And why not?

Stay tuned for more from there. Hopefully including pictures and stuff. We'll see.

Boston Strong

I meant to post this a while ago, but I wanted to post photos taken of Boston Common the Sunday following the marathon. Unfortunately they didn't come out (they're backlit, so you can't see any of the people in them).

But it was nice to see that the Common was packed with people and that Boston is getting back to normal after the bombing.

PAX East 2013 - Day 3

And that's it, PAX East is now officially over. It was a great three days (and an exhausting three days), but it's all over.

PAX East 2013 - Day 2

Well, I'm a bit tired - tired enough that I never got around to writing a summary of Day 2 last night. So I guess it's time to write up what I've got to say about it.

The only new game I really saw was Watchdogs, but there's really nothing new to say about it. Unless the PS4 release is news. It's a game set in a computer-controlled Chicago that the player character can "hack" with his smartphone. Still looks as interesting as it always did, but it's still made by Ubisoft which makes me wary about the DRM that will kill the PC version.

PAX East 2013 - Day 1

Day 1 is wrapping up at PAX East. Not much to say from the expo hall yet since the only booth I really looked at was the Square Enix booth and the only thing I really saw was the Saints Row 4 presentation. Which wasn't really much of anything, although they did show off a bit of the new plot. (It's an alien invasion.) You are no longer just the boss of the Third Street Saints, you are now the President of the United States and you have super powers. It's at this point that I can't help but assume that Volition is just screwing with us, but who knows, it could work.
