#BlogapieGamer | Check Out My Steam Controller

Welcome to another #BlogapieGamer, a gaming blog series that chronicles a behind-the-scenes look at my creative career.

#BlogapieGamer | Check Out My Steam Controller

Today, I want to show you the Steam Controller I purchased.

I bought Valve’s Steam Controller from Amazon at just around the time it was released. And I haven’t been disappointed with my purchase.

The build quality is solid and the unit feels comfortable to hold after getting used to the controller’s unique curvature, button placements, and track-pads.

Nice and Steamy

Every game I play on Steam is played with this controller with very few exceptions. I’ve beat the Tomb Raider reboot, Gauntlet reboot, and Mass Effect 1 with this and have put hours into Serous Sam, the Resident Evil franchise, and many indie titles. I love it. The built in gyro combined with the track-pads really feel much better than a traditional controller.

Fun Fact: I shoot arrows, with hybrid motion controls, in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild better due to having played Tomb Raider with gyro and track-pad aiming. It’s prep work, I say, in a good way.

I would recommend the Steam Controller to any gamer interested.

Thanks for reading and taking a look behind the scenes with me. See you next time!

Why Limbo Is A Bucket List Game (Part 1)

LIMBO is a certified Bucket List game that everyone should play before he or she “kicks the bucket”.

The following information comes from Backlog and Bucket List Gaming ISSUE 2:


I would like to introduce you to a game I bought twice—a game that is on several platforms, making avoiding this gem a hard thing to do—and a game with no on-screen display: Limbo. The next game to be added to your Bucket List.

Limbo Title Screen


Limbo is an adventure puzzle game where the player gets to control a little boy who wakes up in a dark, dreary forest who soon realizes he needs to search for his sister. But finding his sister is no easy task.

The long forest takes you to many places: into caverns, up trees, across lakes, up ladders, and face to face with dangerous . . . things. I will keep that secret for when you eventually play the game. I recommend avoiding videos of this short and sweet adventure.



I was hooked the moment I began my journey. The graphics were immediately striking with the world being consumed in darkness only brightened by the rays of white light coming from the background.

I remember waiting for the game to start only to realize it already had—the lack of on-screen health bars, inventory, and display really helped in immersing me into the game world. But it was the adventure, as well as the puzzles, along the way that kept me playing . . .
