Is Dark Souls: Remastered worth it on Xbox One? Let's take a look.

Dark Souls: Remastered is great but the sequels are better.

If you own an Xbox One, you may have only played Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin or Dark Souls III on the system. The original Dark Souls was only a backward compatible title which suffered from poor performance and visuals on the console. Luckily, with the launch of Dark Souls: Remastered, the trilogy is available in a native presentation. The new game might not look as stellar as the sequels – even though it is a remaster – it still fixes some of the major issues with the original and retains its mystique years later.

How to create custom keybindings in SteamVR

You can now customize controllers for use in SteamVR.

In an attempt to broaden the accessibility spectrum when it comes to VR and its controllers, SteamVR has introduced custom keybindings. In the past, though SteamVR supports HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality (WMR), apps sometimes didn’t offer support for the different motion controllers. From here on out, VR apps will be able to support any compatible controllers (including gamepads) without having to worry about buttons not matching up.

This also opens the door to anyone who’s left-handed, living with a disability, or who prefers to play a game a certain way. If you’re ready to create your own custom keybindings for different VR controllers, I’ve put together this guide to help you get started.
