I also discovered that it can be used to play games that aren't even from steam. I keep shortcuts to the games that I have installed separate in steam just to have things together. So, just for an experiment, I loaded up Freelancer, which is not a steam game, on my Macbook. To my surprise, it worked without a problem. This means that it should work with things like World of Warcraft, or anything really.
topdown-SHMUP kick lately. I've been playing Phoenix HD on my iPad, and RefleX on my PC. It's a genera of games that I keep going back to. I grew up playing Space Invaders on my 386, and I've always loved the type of game. I've been trying to find a good one for my 3DS, but there doesn't seem to be any that appeal to me. I'm going to start (slowly) working on my own shmup game. I've been playing around a bit learned Unity for game development. It's super easy to work with, so I may have something half playable before too long. I won't be able to focus on it like I have with Dungeon Marauders these past few months, so it won't be too fast.
Last weekend, I organized my controller cabinet. I wanted it to be a bit like a gun display case. I joked with Sarah that I'm going to replace the door with a glass one. I made some wall clips to hold the ones on the wall. Super easy to make, and pretty awesome as well. I think I'm going to make three more to get another row off the bottom. That will have to wait until I get back from Minnesota.
