A toaster. A fucking toaster no one even bothered to wrap.

That said I do kinda like it. I refused to get rid of our older one, even though it really only made warm bread and took a few tries to toast/incinerate the bread.

Does it make jeebus faces?

Right now it doesn't do anything but gently warm the bread.

I need to adjust it I guess or maybe read the instructions...

RE: Ranting corner
I bought Dark Souls 2 for the PC today.

Game: "PRESS START BUTTON"
Me: I'm on PC. I don't have a Start Button...
Game: *in game tutorial* Press these buttons on your xbox controller to accomplish these actions...
Me: What the hell? *attempts to fix atrocious default keyboard/mouse button mapping and figure out how it corresponds to the xbox controller buttons in the instructions*
Game: Press A to Confirm, B to go back...
Me: I'M PLAYING ON A PC. STOP TELLING ME TO PRESS BUTTONS ON A FUCKING XBOX CONTROLLER THAT I DON'T HAVE!!!! IF I WANTED TO USE AN XBOX CONTROLLER I WOULD BUY AN XBOX AND THEN BUY THE GAME FOR THE XBOX.
Game: *nothing because I uninstalled it*
Me: *boots up Skyrim* Smile

... Good thing I brought a controller and adapter just to play Dark Souls then...

That is because, like every smart person, no one plays Dark souls with mouse and keyboard, NO ONE! In fact some many people play it with controller that it has gone to that point.

I'm considering that, but it looks like the controller might cost more than the game. Dodgy

I really want to like Dark Souls 2, but is it worth it?

I agree, no smart person plays Dark Souls 2 with a mouse and keyboard because From Software totally screwed up the port and made it completely unplayable with a mouse and keyboard. Facepalm

I can't speak to PC, as I played on the 360 and am holding out downloading DS until I manage to build my computer...

360 version I say was wonderful; good solid game and it worked very well with the controller. Though it did not look the best and stuttered occasionally (but I was playing it on a TV so old it can only accept one set of audio and video inputs and can't use HD and a 360 can only do so much...)

I'm sure it'll be better on PC than console; which is why I brought it. Controller issue aside, that is.

That is definitely one of those just kill me now moments. Unless it was from a child younger than 10 I really think you just needed to be honest and reply 'what, you got me a fucking toaster, and you didn't even wrap the fucking thing'?

Hey one time I was at the mall on Christmas eve and ran out of time and grabbed one of those fucking statues of the thinker for my mom. I still cringe when I think of her opening it. I know she was thinking, you got me the fucking thinker? Facepalm

Well if you want to play it yes. However there is a reason I only play games like that on xbox. If a game on PC says controller only I buy it on xbox. The games I buy on PC are old games that no one plays on xbox 360 anymore.
