When we weren’t do­ing ev­ery­thing else, we were think­ingnk­ing about stuff like this

The things that caught our eye dur­ing the pro­duc­tion of E327

There have been a few mouse-and-key­board pe­riph­er­als for PS4 and Xbox One kick­ing about, but this is the first we’ve seen that’s also com­pat­i­ble with Switch. GameSir’s VX AimSwitch is a fine choice for peo­ple who pre­fer slightly more pre­cise con­trols when play­ing on con­sole, boast­ing a sta­ble wire­less con­nec­tion from up to 32.8 feet, con­fig­urable mouse but­tons, RGB light­ing, me­chan­i­cal keys and a de­tach­able palm­rest. Of course, there’s a sep­a­rate con­ver­sa­tion to be had about whether it’s re­ally fair to bust out MKB con­trols in some­thingg like a com­pet­i­tive con­sole shooter – but if you’re un­con­cerned with the ethics of it all, pre­order­ing this willl costco you about £77.

WEB GAME Mon­strüous bit.ly/mon­stru­ous­game The stuff of giddy child­hood night­mares, Mon­strüous is a de­light­fully creepy puz­zle game. You con­trol an in­trepid ad­ven­tur­ing party and at­tempt to van­quish a bul­bous, grin­ning beast by se­lect­ing eight ac­tions in the cor­rect or­der. It sounds sim­pler than it is: close ob­ser­va­tion of each move is key in or­der to work out how each one works and might re­late to the oth­ers. It’s a joy to study Ar­naud Mil­lot’s art and an­i­ma­tion – the crea­ture re­ceiv­ing a nasty sun­burn or vom­it­ing up dan­ger­ous eggs, a wiz­ard with a bub­ble wand sum­mon­ing a me­teor. The price of a fail­ure is some scary voice­work, while Robin Richard’s mu­sic is am­ple ex­cuse for just one more go. If you’ve got kids who can stom­ach some of the weirder mo­ments of Ad­ven­ture Time, this is a per­fect choice to puz­zle out to­gether one night.

DIY Mini Con­troller Wheel bit.ly/3Dprint­wheel While we ap­pre­ci­ate that a large por­tion of our read­er­shiparen’t trendy twen­tysome­thing San Fran­cis­cans with 3D print­ers next to their pasta ma­chines, this con­troller­mounted, thumb-steered mini driv­ing wheel is of note even if you don’t have the fa­cil­i­ties to fash­ion your own. If you do, how­ever, pixel2’s free down­load seems well worth a tinker. With the help of a skate­board bear­ing, a bit of su­per­glue and a pa­per clip, you can rig the clev­erly de­signed rack-and-pin­ion mech­a­nism to your con­troller’s sticks and steer your favourite ForzaHori­zon4 ve­hi­cles with finer con­trol. It’s not with­out its flaws – it’ll block your D-pad, and scratch your paint job over time un­less cush­ioned cor­rectly. But it’s a slick lit­tle piece of kit, and avail­able ready-printed for cheap on Etsy if you’re cu­ri­ous.

VIDEO Com­mon­wealth Mil­i­tary Mu­seum Tour bit.ly/f4­mu­seum TheChiefCu­ra­tor is a cre­ator in his six­ties who’s spent a sig­nif­i­cant amount of his re­tire­ment build­ing a stag­ger­ingly de­tailed Com­mon­wealth Mil­i­tary mu­seum in Fall­out4. Con­sid­er­ing how wonky the base-build­ing me­chan­ics are, it’s in­cred­i­ble how he’s man­aged to use them so adeptly: mods have plenty to do with it, it seems, as does his keen eye for lay­out. Our tour guide does a won­der­ful job of walk­ing us through the build – the com­men­tary is a great primer on se­ries lore. The en­thu­si­asm and pride in his voice is a balm for the soul.
