These days I don’t have as much free time to game as I’d like, so it’s important to me to have a rough idea of how long a game is going to take from start to finish. I found this great resource, Video Game Length, that catalogs the length of many video games. Obviously the play time is based on working through the single player campaign, but so far I’ve found it to be pretty accurate. For example, it pegs Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess at around 40 hours and Portal at around 10 hours. Both of those estimates jive with how long it took me to finish both games.
I have a computer mouse I’m rather fond of, so when the left click started acting funny (frequent double clicks, when I was only lightly tapping it once), I started looking online for a way to fix it. I found this tutorial at Instructables. While I don’t own the exact mouse they use in the tutorial, the same repair trick. From what they suggest in the tutorial it’s a bit of a temporary fix, but mine hasn’t broke down again. Cheers!
使用Ovo for Android跟踪時間
I’ve been playing the crap out of Diablo III since it came out. If you’ve ever played any sort of questing/grinding type games like it, you know how easy it is to lose track of time. In order to help me avoid staying up late, I’ve set up a timer on my Android phone. I prop the phone against my monitor stand and it gives me a nice visual reminder. The problem with most timers is that they’re an eyesore. I’ve been using Ovo for my gaming sessions, it’s got a really eye catching circle that reduces in size as the time counts down. Much better looking than some huge glaring red numbers!
