Get a tempered glass screen protector. The Switch screen wont shatter if dropped, but the flip side is it scratches and scuffs easily. These are pretty good.

u/thatJainaGirl · 167 pointsr/smashbros

As of right now, it's just the Mayflash Wii U/PC adapter, and it currently only supports one controller (all four ports act as P1), but it's a start!

u/Rhinne · 119 pointsr/gaming

GET A Tempered Glass Screen Protector NOW. The screen is plastic and can scratch when taking it in and out of the dock

I can testify on those controller grips, but the model I got had larger trigger paddles. There are a lot of manufactuers of the design - seems some have better triggers than others. Here is the AmazonBasic branded one.

it is also worth pointing out that there is a "Pro" controller that is shaped like a normal console controller.

More general wisdom; If you buy a 2nd dock - be on the lookout for Chinese knockoffs. The Switch does NOT use a normal USB C plug - the voltage is different. (even though it is shaped identically). Using the wrong plug can fry the system (much like first gen USB-C phones. Do research first.

There are cases for the switch to protect when traveling - but not useful when dropped. Examples

There are Grip cases - but they will not protect from a fall. And the joycons will be in the case. Example Which may affect any travel case - if you use one. The Amazon page claims drop protection, but I'm doubtful on any of these. And the Joycons "popping" off when dropped may be a safety feature intended by Nintendo. (much like the console sitting vertical when docked for heat distribution)

There is no drop proof case. IMO.

Also, keep an eye on Bionic, they make some cool joy con chargers. Easiest way is to just leave it connected to the switch charging.

The pro controller will charge via micro USB like a Xbox controller.

u/somerandomgamer0 · 82 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use the Sony Gold headset with my Switch, and it works great. While a headphone jack would be nice, I hope you realize that it's still possible to use wireless headphones with the Switch. You don't have to play with low or no volume!

u/milesdavisjr · 74 pointsr/gaming

Probably something like this.

u/punkonjunk · 72 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I absolutely 100% agree with you. I suffer from wrist pain that's entirely my fault from gaming too much and typing with bad posture for a long time, and the joycons are so close to perfect but no system remap option is awful. And they are tiny. and they break easily.

On your end, you can use the mayflash Magic-NS to use any other system's controller - which would let you use the Xbox adaptive controller, the ultimate in modular controllers for disabled folks. It's a really neat controller and an amazing platform for custom solutions - foot buttons, long cables on a pair of sticks that can reach your hands separately, etc. Really, really amazing platform. This guy kind of goes over some of the unique caveats -

u/_Hugh_Jass · 61 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I had no idea product like this existed for console gaming. More research must be done but I think I may have found my next purchase :-)

Yeaaahhhhhh fuck that. Maybe if the price point was around $100 then I'd be interested.

Edit 2:
Why is Amazon $100 more expensive even with the conversion?

u/dmalvano · 56 pointsr/gaming

Or just buy make it so I can use this for it

u/Jarton · 56 pointsr/gaming

Also, if you happen to already have an N64 controller you can Buy an adapter to plug it into your PC via USB.

Edit: I do recommend this item. I use it myself. Also thanks for the gold :D

u/Reebzy · 56 pointsr/PS4

Let's be clear though, the PowerA dock is the best one.

> PowerA DualShock 4 Controller Charging Station for PlayStation 4 by POWER A

u/AlphaNERDSolid · 55 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The article does not go into detail. Seems like all he did is plugging it into an adapter. The adapter he used is the Mayflash MagicNS adapter. 8bitdo also offers such an adapter, however that is strictly wireless.

It's cool to see that he used an adapter for the adaptive controller on the Switch but at the end of the day it's all that he did. Nothing new in this regard.

u/Sharrakor · 51 pointsr/gaming
u/MajorasAss · 50 pointsr/smashbros

> wired Wii U compatible Gamecube controller

I refuse to believe anyone who keeps saying this shit has even held a Wii U Pro controller, or hasn't seen the link to the Wii U GC Mayflash adaptor that gets posted every other thread.

u/Cedocore · 48 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Anyone who wants a good kickstand should 100% check out the HORI Playstand. I spent 8 hours playing on the built-in stand one day and at the end I fucking hated it, but my buddy recommended this to me and oh my god it's so much better. It sounds dumb but this is one of the best purchases I've made in months. It pairs very well with those wooden TV tray/stands everyone seems to own except me.

u/The_Masked_Bandito · 47 pointsr/PS4

This is the best one i've seen so far.

u/Miketendo88 · 46 pointsr/nintendo

screen protector Love this screen protector. Doesn't noticeable affect the screen brightness. I honestly just wipe the screen with a microfiber cloth (or my tshirt) haven't had any issues.

u/Ryan3395 · 45 pointsr/gaming

There's the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection. Includes MG, MG2, MGS1, MGS1:VR, MGS2, MGS3, MGS:PW, and MGS4.
> Edit: $75 on Amazon

u/caninehere · 44 pointsr/GameDeals

There's a few but this is the one I have.

Looking into it now the Steam Controller is apparently one of the only controllers that doesn't work with it - because the Steam Controller doesn't have Bluetooth + blocks it from working in wired mode apparently.

But the adapter works with:

  • Wireless - DualShock 3, DualShock 4, Switch Pro, Joy-Con, Wii U Pro controller, and XB1
  • Wired - DualShock 3, DualShock 4, Switch Pro, XB1 pad, Xbox 360 controllers and fight sticks, and standard wired USB controllers (with the Steam Controller being one of the few exceptions).

    I have only really used it with the Switch, but it works with the PC + PS3 as well which is neat. I usually used an XB1 gamepad or DualShock 4 and it worked perfectly with both. I eventually bought a Switch Pro controller though.
u/OZONE_TempuS · 41 pointsr/patientgamers

Metal Gear Solid has six mainline canon installments (technically eight but I'm disregarding the NES games since I don't think they're worth playing and they're both covered in Metal Gear Solid) that spans fifty years and covers the arcs of many characters.

Most the games have some sort of deep narrative that run throughout the entire game but the stories for the most part are very good, albeit a bit convoluted on your first play through. The games sort of flop between very serious story telling and self parody, meaning they never taken themselves too seriously and they're full of little quirks and complete fiction.

The gameplay is fantastic too, the only one I'd say that has aged noticeably is the first one but the second Solid game made massive improvements to gameplay that stayed with the series and was added onto.

It's one of my favorite franchises and Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater are two of my all time favorite games, definitely worth a shot if you haven't already played them. If you have a PS3 then you can get the Legacy Collection which contains all the canon entries except for Phantom Pain but it's on PS3 as well.

u/yashwinusa123 · 40 pointsr/PS3

boiiiii get a goddamn ps3. you won't regret it.


u/Forstride · 40 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

amFilm has great tempered glass screen protectors that you can get pretty cheap on Amazon:

You'll definitely want to apply it yourself though, as it's very tricky (I've even screwed it up a few times myself).

u/pmo2408 · 38 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I was Xbox forever, started a new job on the road and decided to go for the switch as well for portability. Good choice.


Must Buys Accessories:

Screen protector - there is a 2 pack on amazon:

amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

SD card (if going digital with games) - maybe go 256gb, amazon has a sale on them, you only need U1 speeds for the switch:

SanDisk 256GB Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter - 100MB/s, C10, U1, Full HD, A1, Micro SD Card - SDSQUAR-256G-GN6MA

Carrying cases - I have two, one for the whole collection (switch, joycons, dock, charger, hdmi):

AmazonBasics Travel and Storage Case for Nintendo Switch - Black

And one for the switch in handheld mode. I use both quite frequently:

Orzly Carry Case Compatible With Nintendo Switch - RED Protective Hard Portable Travel Carry Case Shell Pouch for Nintendo Switch Console & Accessories

Pro controller - easier to play games in docked mode than the joycons.


Smash is out next Friday, but it looks like the best game of the year material.


Pokémon Let’s Go is a spin off, remake of yellow version, but it is a great game. Maybe not $60 great for gameplay, but for nostalgia. I’d say a fair price is around $40.


Games suggested:

Must Play Exclusives:

Zelda: BOTW (10/10) little bit of a learning curve, but open world game with 100+ hours of content

Super Mario Odyssey (9.5/10) very laid back and at times almost too easy, but overall very fun and creative. 30 hours of content


Exclusives W/ Friends or Online:

Mario Kart 8 (9/10)

Super Mario Party Switch (8.5/10)


Other Top Tier Exclusives:

Splatoon (8.5/10) (may be stressful online, but awesome game for both online play and “salmon runs”)

Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze (8.5/10) (tough game but such awesome level design, music; this game can become frustrating)

Mario Rabbids (8.5/10) (fun game, again, can become frustrating as it is a strategy, turn based game with Nintendo characters)

Pokémon Let’s Go (8.5/10) (fun game, super nostalgic trip back to the past of Pokémon origins but now in 3D with alolan forms)

We still don’t know about Super Smash Bros Ulitmate, but I can’t imagine it won’t be a 9 or 9.5 out of 10.

Golf story is the next exclusive game I’ll be getting some time down the road, very hit or miss with people however.

Disclaimer: I don’t really get non exclusives on switch, as I can get them on PC for cheap 9/10 times (except red dead). Also, I do not care for JRPG’s, so I can’t comment on Xenoblade, Octopath, Fire Emblem, Monster Hunter etc.

As others have pointed out, indies are great for the Switch, not too demanding to require further CPU or GPU Power to hinder gameplay, but you will pay the “Nintendo tax”. This is that Nintendo hardly has sales on games. But the point of the Switch is gaming on the go, so it’s a good trade off. If that’s not your reasoning, then stick with indies on stronger consoles or PC.


Joycons are not too small, I would pair them with these if you want to use them single player (like Mario kart or Mario party):

FASTSNAIL Grips for Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, Wear-resistant Handle Kit for Switch Joy Cons Controller, 2 Pack (Black)

When attached to the switch in handheld mode, you can use this to help:

Orzly Comfort Grip Case for Nintendo Switch - Protective Back Cover for use on The Nintendo Switch Console in Handheld Gamepad Mode with Built in Comfort Padded Hand Grips - Smokey Slate

u/s4ndm4nn15 · 37 pointsr/gaming

Looks like it's a kumara reddragon keyboard:

It's a cheap mechanical keyboard, but it works great for the cost. If you don't have a mechanical keyboard this is a great place to start. I have been using mine for about 6 months and it's awesome.

Edit: I was wrong. That is a hyperx keyboard. Probably the alloy fps pro.

u/1moe7 · 35 pointsr/Games

If you've never played MGS, this is the way to go, buddy. You won't regret it.

Whew! I swear I am not a shill for Amazon. I just appreciate a good deal when I see it.

u/RobertAPetersen · 30 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I had two different pairs of left joycons drift on me.

Finally said fuck it and bought a $20 adaptor that lets me use my PS4 DualShock controller on my Switch. I’ve had that thing since the PS4 launched and have had zero issues with it. Switch just sees it as a Switch Pro controller. Works brilliantly, even wireless, rumble, and gyro.

u/FznCheese · 30 pointsr/PS4

Not sure what price range you were thinking but I love my PS Gold wireless headset. I've seen them go on sale quite often but I don't regret picking them up for $100 when they first came out. They would allow him to get his game on with the sound cranked without disturbing you and all the neighborhood. They also create virtual surround sound which is pretty cool. The ps4 comes with a little mono (single ear bud) mic that can plug into the controller but it is poor quality and not very comfortable. It works in a pinch but if your husband plans to do any voice chat for online games he will want a better mic than what comes with the ps4 and I've had no complaints using the ps gold headset.

It will also work with your pc. So if he's a pc gamer he can get double duty out of it.

u/psicat76 · 30 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Everything mentioned here is great advice. I would only add to get a carrying case and screen protector. As for games the Pokémon: Let’s Go games, you can play coop and help him, and any Lego game are also great for kids.

u/lodum · 30 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

>Can we buy and download the games through the Console's Nintendo Store like you can for Xbox and Playstation games?


>I want a more Xbox style controller for home play

Switch Pro Controller

> is there any other well reviewed accessories that are must haves for using outside the home?

Get a screen protector. This is the one I have, it works fine. You might want a case to protect the Switch,j I have no recommendations on that. Otherwise, a carrying case is almost a necessity as you can't keep it in your pocket. I don't have any recommendations on that, either, but you can't go wrong as long as you don't get a really dumb one.

u/seemebreakthis · 27 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Yes so for the best experience get an extra stand like this so u can play while charging.

u/Gr8NonSequitur · 27 pointsr/nintendo

Not by default, and it's pretty much why this exists

u/social_gamer · 27 pointsr/GameDeals

I was about to purchase this as "The Definitive Experience" sounded more like the PS3 version of Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection with Ground Zeroes + MGS:V and then was let down with it only being 2 games an their dlc.

u/[deleted] · 25 pointsr/truegaming

The Legacy Collection comes out next month (July 9th). I'd wait and get that if I was you.

It includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition.

And you should play all of them in order. Maybe skip the first 2 if you're not big on retro games.

Edit: Just noticed it doesn't come with the first MGS. You can pick that up on PSN like you planned and play it while you're waiting for the Legacy Collection to come out.

Edit 2: Actually, it comes with a voucher for MGS1. So it's up to you if you want to wait or not.

u/specter437 · 25 pointsr/oculus

Nah, you lose much more. This packaging loses the Xbone controller($39), Wireless Xbone Adapter ($20) (and USB extender), Oculus remote($29), and Rockband adapter($10?) while still at same price of $399. Maybe I'm just petty at getting extra goodies, but I'm glad I lucked out and got one of the original packages last week.

u/juken · 25 pointsr/gaming

This adapter

u/NotRye · 24 pointsr/PS4

It's going to be a pain in the behind plugging in your controller to charge all the time, so I recommend the PS4 dual charging dock

u/Jashyk · 23 pointsr/PS4

The only one worth considering in my opinion is this
It uses the aux port on the bottom to charge, whereas most need something plugged into the usb port on top before putting them on the charger, which looks tacky.

u/T_Maarhaysu · 23 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/cowsareverywhere · 23 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I picked these up and the ones posted look similar. The protector was real easy to apply and didn't give me any issues.

u/Dioroxic · 23 pointsr/pcmasterrace

And then you plug in a Xim 4 and absolutely destroy everything because it's basically PC controls with aimbot...

u/yohan12 · 22 pointsr/playstation

The PlayStation wireless gold headset is the best headset I've owned for the exact situation you're in. They are wireless with pretty good battery life, plug and play on all three systems, and even though you have extra money, they are cheap.

u/rockincellist · 21 pointsr/smashbros

Nintendo re-produced some white GC controllers for use on the Wii in Japan, but some people sell those over here too on Amazon.

u/squirtz78 · 21 pointsr/PS4

Get one of these

One of the best purchases I have made for my ps4. I have mine setup right next to the couch so if a controller goes dead I just reach over and grab the other one.

u/RoyalAquaBlue · 21 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use the RDS Industries Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case. It's $20 at Walmart and Amazon.

It has room for cartridges under the system in little removable plastic boxes. I removed them. The pouch in the middle makes for nice padding. The case is fairly rigid, so I know I could drop my system and not fear it's safety.

Personally, this is what I plan to use forever when traveling with my switch. If I need more than this... like extra controllers and the dock... I'll use a second bag and load it up with all the extras and then use this case for the system and put that in the same bag.

EDIT: Forgot to mention the handle is great and makes carrying the system extra easy.

u/GomaN1717 · 20 pointsr/Games

If you get a Mayflash Adapter, you can still use your old GCN controllers.

u/faortiz · 20 pointsr/wiiu

I purchased two adapters on amazon and here's what I got.

Both are the same, inputs are only for OTHER Wii remote accessories. I'm so frustrated because I was excited to finally use my GC controllers. But anyway, I'm trying to ask for a replacement but Amazon doesn't let me and says it's only for standard refund. DAMMIT.

Has this happened to anyone? How did you handle it? I don't want to pay for returned shipping and I would REALLY like to receive replacements already instead of having to look online again and purchase two more. I didn't even know that they made these? The picture clearly shows a slot for GC controllers. But yeah, all help/advice appreciated.

EDIT: I didn't mean to give amazon any bad light, they gave me a full refund right away and I'm still going to buy another pair of adapters to use my GC controller. Didn't mean to rant so much, I just thought this unlucky fail was hilarious enough for reddit to see.

EDIT2: I realized after reading some comments that I forgot to mention that I own the Wii U, although I hoped it was rather obvious seeing as how I posted this in r/WiiU. Thanks to those who rightfully assumed this

u/MrGentleNinja · 20 pointsr/xboxone

The adapter shown here that the Adaptive Controller is connecting to is the Mayflash Magic NS Wireless Controller Adapter for Nintendo Switch. I currently use to connect my regular Xbox controller to the Switch for Super Mario Odyssey where it works flawlessly, and I plan to do so again for Smash. I highly recommend it!

u/Waterskier87 · 20 pointsr/battlefield_4

I believe something like this :

Xim 4 Keyboard and Mouse Adapter for PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3

But from what I've heard, it still doesn't feel like you are using KB + M. It's better than a controller, but not quite the same

u/maxk713 · 20 pointsr/smashbros

Well since no one seems interested in answering the question and instead wants to criticize your life choices, I'll quickly go through a few things you may want to consider.

  • USB-C car charger. I got no reason to suggest this other than I really like USB-C. It honestly won't make a difference. Assuming you have a cell phone, buy whatever car charger will work with your phone too. My phone came with a USB-C to USB-C, so I got no need for USB-A ports.
  • Pro Controller. Instead of getting a GC controller and adapter, it might be easier to just buy a pro controller. It comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable, so that would be one less purchase you have to make.
  • Neither Pro Controller or GC Controller. The Switch comes with two Joy Cons and a Joy Con grip to make a pretty standard controller layout. It might not be the most comfortable, but its reasonable and obviously cheaper than buying any extra accessories.
  • Power bank. If you are going to be in a car, you may want an extra source of power for when your car isn't running. Of course that is money and if you are conscious of when you are charging, you don't need it, but it may be nice to have. Worth a thought.
  • Screen protector. Get it anyways. It would suck really bad if you bought all of this only for the screen to break. Especially if you are only playing in tabletop mode. I would recommend getting this one.

    That's all I can think of for now. Feel free to ask me if you got any questions.
u/NMTommy · 20 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Or just buy one of these:
HORI Compact Playstand for Nintendo Switch Officially Licensed by Nintendo

Problem solved.

u/kerning_PQ · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/RandomPandah · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Just tried using the mayflash gamecube adapter, it works if you use pc mode! There isn't any noticeable delay.

Link to adapter:

EDIT: You need to have the black cable plugged into the dock (The white one isn't needed for only 1 controller, don't know about multiple controllers) and have your controller in the player 2 port.

EDIT 2: Thanks to /u/IcyAthene we know that the C-stick is not properly mapped and the analog stick is basically a DPad and that multiple controllers behave as one. I only tested it in mario kart so i didn't realize it :(

u/reddittrees2 · 19 pointsr/todayilearned

From there TIL someone finally made a good alternative to Adaptoid :

u/ChibiSheep · 19 pointsr/smashbros

I stand by using this adapter to play with my GCN controller. That's how I play MK8 and all of my virtual console games. Hoping that it works with Smash U.

u/Biggus_TM · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Ill build two routes handheld gaming and docked.

Mario Kart 8 -$55

Total - $ 464.00


Switch - $300

Legend of Zelda BOTW - 44.99

Nintendo Official Wall Charger - $28 (I choose this because I am very picky about power options with consoles and I know this will function)

Switch Case - $15 (This can be hit or miss a lot of people love butterfox but my two smelled like shit and opted for a better version, but for the price it is unbeatable, worth the risk of the smell)

Mario Kart 8 -$55

Total - $443

Games can be changed in and out but imo BOTW is the best game on the switch and Mario Kart 8 is loads of fun. I personally do not have a pro controller, mainly because I play strictly handheld but from what I have been told it is a must for docked gameplay.

Edit: In the future you are going to need a SD card. Especially if you are going the Digital route, again personally I prefer physical and the at of collecting the games but that is me.

Did you not read the entire thread?

> We have lobbied and will continue to lobby for first-party console manufacturers to either:
> Disallow mouse and keyboard and input conversion devices
> OR
> Openly and easily support mouse and keyboard for ALL players

He wants a level playing field for console players. Currently in order to play with a keyboard+mouse combo you have to spend a hefty sum on a conversion adapter like this one here for $149.99

Jeff is asking that console manufacturers give native support for these peripherals so everyone can play with a mouse and keyboard without having to order an adapter that costs over half of what a console costs.

u/KamasutraBlackBelt · 18 pointsr/ChoosingBeggars

It's the Xbox wireless adapter for Windows. Unfortunately the Elite controller, for all its features, does not support a Bluetooth connection (there are newer Xbox controllers that do and a new version is in the works that supports it). The play and charge kit does come with a really long cable so if the controller dies, I can plug it in and continue to charge it while playing.

u/KoloHickory · 18 pointsr/pcmasterrace

With leds on

Amazon link for the keyboard

Usually in the cheap range (<$40), it is hard to find browns. They pretty much all come with blues.

Other boards i like if you are in the market

Magicforce 68 Outemu browns

Redragon K552 Outemu blues

u/Deathrayer · 17 pointsr/NintendoSwitch If you don’t want to wait until 2019 to play smash with GCC you can get this adapter, which works just as well as the official Nintendo one, and even works for pc. I’ve owned it for almost 2 years now and haven’t had a single issue

u/Jhubbz86 · 17 pointsr/buildapcsales

As someone who owns the white and Dawn Shadow versions of this, I can tell you I used the Asus BT400, and it worked ok, but I was also only ever 2-3 feet away from it. Even then, I still had some small issues with it. I ended up sucking it up and buy the official Microsoft Xbox One Adapter for Windows. I've had zero issues since, and I highly suggest you just got for that, especially since it's only $19 right now, as opposed to it's normal $25.

u/OscarExplosion · 17 pointsr/patientgamers

Get the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection

it has every major Metal Gear Solid (1-4) game you would need to play besides Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. Otherwise if you can't find the Legacy Collection get the HD Collection. Keep in mind though if you do get the HD collection instead you will have to seperatly get the original Metal Gear Solid (It's on PSN for PS3) and Metal Gear Solid 4.

Play them in order:

  • Metal Gear Solid

  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

  • Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
u/HormonalWhore · 17 pointsr/shittykickstarters

I said this last time this project was on this sub, but I'll say it again: I can get this and this for $~70 and it will last longer than this $100+ device. Even if it does ship, I see no reason to buy this over something that likely works better that costs less.

Edit: the battery pack is on sale right now, which only makes this combo a better deal.

u/waffledork · 17 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I picked up the Hori Switch Stand specifically for traveling. Being able to charge while playing is a huge plus but the stand also comes with 3 settings so you can angle your Switch to something other than what thr kickstand offers.

As a tall guy, the kickstand on the Switch doesn't angle the screen enough when you don't have much space to maneuver in Economy seating. The tray table is too close. Having the extra angles makes the Switch playable in tabletop mode for me on airplanes.

Sure you can charge while in handheld mode but that discounts the ability to play multiplayer (MK8D or the like with my wife).

u/gamepete64 · 17 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Easily the best screen protector for the Switch and it comes with 2 in the pack
amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

u/AtomKick · 17 pointsr/nintendo

You can get this $13 stand:

I think it folds flat so you can easily put it i a bag to take it on the go.

u/smore566 · 17 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Get a screen protector, the switch needs it. I recommend the amfilm ones on amazon, link to it. That comes with 2 screen protectors and all the tools you need to put it on for $7.99.

u/BlueRajasmyk2 · 17 pointsr/playstation

There also a port on the bottom for recharging, which is part of what makes this charger so great.

u/bolivar-shagnasty · 16 pointsr/PS4

Here's a very highly rated and very inexpensive controller charging station on Amazon

My PS4 controllers die all the time. It's nice to be able to just plug it onto this thing. It has an AC adapter, so it doesn't plug into the playstation.

Also, about Destiny, unless he has a lot of friends that play it, you might want to hold off on it. Lots of people, myself included, felt disappointed in what the game actually turned out to be. If he has a lot of friends that play it on PS4, then it'll be fine. But if he plans on playing it solo, it gets kind of boring and repetitive pretty quickly.

u/MarshawnPynch · 16 pointsr/PS4

Get the PS4 charging dock

It's $17 (which isn't too bad) but you'll always have a place to put your controller when you're done playing and it'll keep them wont ever have to worry about battery life or keep the controller tethered to the system

What kind of games are you interested in? I could give you some recommendations. PS+ is a must-have for online play and is well worth it for the free games.

u/Ganrokh · 16 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Get a screen protector. it doesn't matter if you don't use one on other devices because you're careful. Get a screen protector. The Switch has a soft screen, meaning it's less likely to break on a fall, but can scratch easily. Even the dock can scratch it.

We recommend this screen protector.

u/Username271980 · 16 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

As a parent, I would strongly recommended you put a screen protector on the Switch, if you haven't already. This is the one we used: amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

u/CajunTurkey · 16 pointsr/gaming
u/Polarthief · 16 pointsr/smashbros

Same here, haven't tested mine on switch, but it is in fact Mayflash and works perfectly on Wii U.

(anyone reading this in the UK for the record, I live in the US, but the picture is the same and the company is also the same. Here's the link to the US one that I currently own)

u/WafflesGaming · 16 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Yeah, the kickstand is extremely clunky, I rarely ever use it. Your best bet would be to buy the HORI Playstand on amazon, here's the link:

I've heard pretty good things about it.

u/chewingstraws · 16 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I'm getting this one because I think it looks nice

u/Zestocalypse · 15 pointsr/playstation

This is the one that I bought around the time the console was released, and it's the best thing ever. If you'd rather pick it up at a store, I always see these at Best Buy with the rest of the PS4 accessories.

u/SegataSanshiro · 15 pointsr/GameDeals

If you still have your old N64 controllers, you're probably better off buying an adapter instead. I have no experience with this particular USB controller, but I've noticed that third party "retro USB" controllers tend to be worse than their first party predecessors.

u/joshmary1 · 15 pointsr/SwitchHacks

You don't even need a hacked switch I use this MAYFLASH MAGIC-NS Wireless...

Wirelessly connect your PS4, PS3, Nintendo Switch Pro, Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, Wii U Pro, and Xbox One S Bluetooth Controllers to your Nintendo Switch, PS3 or PC system. The wired PS4, PS3, Nintendo Switch Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox 360 Controllers and fight sticks, and standard wired USB Controllers like Logitech rumble gamepad F510 and F310 can be connected to your Nintendo Switch, PS3 and PC system. it also supports NEOGEO mini. Plug and play.

u/Nubsly- · 15 pointsr/starcitizen

As many people have mentioned, Star Citizen is still an in-development title, and there are lots of bugs and will likely continue to be lots of bugs for quite a while.

That being said, there are lots of people who are OK with this and are able to enjoy themselves, some fall on the other end of the spectrum and get really frustrated so it's worth keeping in mind that there is a 14 day refund policy. If you or he decides you aren't satisfied with your purchase, you can submit for a refund at any time in that 14 day window.

If you're still with us and you want to go ahead and buy him something, here's four strong options for you to consider:

1) Buy the Mustang Alpha Starter Package for $45 -

2) Buy the Mustang Alpha Starter Package for $45 -

Then upgrade it to an Avenger Titan using this $20 CCU (Cross Chassis Upgrade is an item that you will find in your hangar on the website after purchase and can then apply it to the Mustang Alpha to convert it into an Avenger Titan) -

Most players in Star Citizen have owned at one point, or currently own an Avenger because it is incredibly versatile for its price allowing you to do both combat and hauling stuff while not being paper thin. It's also the one I'd recommend the most for him. He can always use the CCU system to upgrade his ship to something else later once he has a better idea of what he wants to do.

3) If he's likely to mainly do combat, then perhaps the Arrow would be a good choice $90 -

It will be noticeably more combat capable than the Avenger Titan, but it doesn't have any cargo space. It is a very popular ship right now for combat pilots.

4) If you really want to splurge, then get the Cutlass Black Package $115 -

The Cutlass Black is larger than all the other mentioned ships and it's the first real offering that gives you decent multi-crew features. It has an interior you can walk around in with a couple beds (beds are used for logging off if you're out in space instead of at a station), It has a good sized cargo bay that's great for traders. It has a copilot seat which can be used by a second person to help manage shields etc..

It also comes with a turret for some extra firepower. It has plenty of teeth, and you can't really go wrong with it.


If he really ends up liking the game, he should look into picking up some flight hardware (Joysticks etc..). I'd recommend either the t16000m FCS HOTAS $130

Or the dual t16000m setup $115

You can also just buy a single t16000m joystick for around $60 and then buy a second one later. They can be flipped to lefty pretty easily, so don't feel like you need to buy two right away.

In terms of bang for buck, there is no contest compared to these in the budget arena. I personally fly with two sticks, some people prefer the stick plus throttle.


In closing, my personal advice would be to buy him the Mustang Alpha ($45) and the CCU to the Avenger Titan ($20), then tell him you'll contribute X dollars towards some flight hardware (Joystick/throttle etc) or further ship CCU's once he knows what he wants.

Best of luck on your decision making!

u/scooterg2004 · 14 pointsr/hardwareswap

Just curious why people are asking $350 for this combo when it's $390 on amazon brand new.



To me brand new and warranty is worth the $40.

*deleted an extra word.

u/F0REM4N · 14 pointsr/Steam

Amazon has a very large network of registered third party sellers. If an item is out of stock with Amazon, they will often present the next cheapest option. When the Switch was really hot for example, it was constantly sold out. There were always some available though at large markups.

Here for example is a list of all of the current third party switch listing in the US.

u/blablablabber52 · 14 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Definitely get a case and a screen protector

u/HirokiProtagonist · 14 pointsr/smashbros

more info for /u/chickengrande:

Melee and Brawl (and mods for both) are emulated using [Dolphin] (, an open-source emulator that's available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. If your computer can run a modern game at a good fps, then it can most likely emulate smash.

For a controller, I'd recommend using a gamecube controller and a [gamecube->USB adapter] ( Of course, if you're just trying it out, you could use a PS4/xbox controller or even keyboard&mouse.

As for getting the game itself, the proper, legal way to do it is to buy the game disc and rip the ISO (the game file) using a modified wii. That said, if you use your creativity, it's not hard to find the files online (no asking for links!).

u/AuhsojSivart · 14 pointsr/localmultiplayergames

I use this adapter with four controllers. It works very well.

u/Sarmathal · 14 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

If you need a screen protector I highly recommend the amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector.

You should also pick up a Pro Controller. I know it's expensive but it's so worth it.

u/RockerMan503 · 14 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

additionally, you can just buy a [tempered glass screen protector] ( and just not worry about the scratches at all.

u/Jediknightluke · 14 pointsr/wow

A MMO mouse will completely change the game for you. Back before my wife and I were married I would visit her on the weekends, and one weekend I left my naga over there and didn't play WoW for the whole week. You just get so accustomed to it.
Nagas are normally really expensive, but there are really good alternatives. This mouse is around 30 bucks on Amazon and has 5 stars.

I need to get me a gaming keyboard, I have never had one before so idk how well those would benefit me. I'm just using an old PS2 keyboard now.

edit- Been here almost 4 years and just got my first gold. Thank you so much! I love this community :)

u/enpassantman · 14 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I highly recommend the amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector.

Currently on Amazon for under $10 does not bubble and comes with a backup.

u/CripplerJones · 13 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You forgot:

  • I finally got a Nintendo Switch! Which accessories should I buy for it before it gets here? Most people recommend a screen protector and a carrying case. As for the most frequently recommended carrying cases, there's this one from RDS Industries and this one from Butterfox.

  • What's the biggest, cheapest, most reliable microSD card I can buy for the Switch? There's no best answer, but a lot of people on this sub recommend this one from Samsung.

  • Should I buy a Nintendo Switch? What about all of the problems I heard about? Maybe? I don't know. That's your call, friend. There are problems, as there are with any new piece of technology, but Nintendo has a great warranty with excellent customer support, and the issues aren't quite as widespread as it seems (people are most vocal when there's a problem; they typically won't say anything if there's nothing wrong).

  • What games are coming out for the Switch? There's a link in the sidebar on desktop, but for mobile users, check here.
u/squeeowl · 13 pointsr/perth

Low key impressed with this list!

>Bulk loose leaf tea. Best I've found is health food shop. I don't like all the packaging they do for tea, I'm happy to diffuse it myself

>Bulk staples: spices, rice, pasta, etc. BULk for best prices.

Large Asian Grocery stores like MCQ or NP.

>Proper cold-pressed dill pickles, Lithuanian half-sour type. These are only brined, never heated, so they have a crisp snap (and can't be shipped really because of refrigeration). Claussen is the best comparison, but afaik you can't get those outside the USA because of refrigeration issues

Somewhere like The Re Store (Northbridge/Leederville) is probably your best bet (same for bulk black olives).

>A Switch. Refurbished is fine. Saw $500 at the mall and that's too much for me to pay.

Currently $398 Free Shipping at Amazon. (Cheap Nintendo Switch Consoles seem to be one of the only things local Amazon is good for)

>Nice potted plants. Bunnings?

Bunnings and Waldecks are the majors, although keep an eye out for various plant sales run by local councils as well as seasonal warehouse plant sales, often advertised on social media. Worth searching for nurseries in your local area on google maps if you want to try and compare with more local options.

>Art supplies: polymer clay, ribbon, dried flowers, fabric, felt, beads, feathers, silk flowers

Riot Art & Craft is a major chain in malls that would have this sort of stuff, you may also find some of these items at the other big craft chains like Spotlight or Lincraft. Jacksons for painting / drawing supplies.

>BBQ sauce, American style. Default styles here don't have proper tang or spice.

Fancy IGAs (e.g 2nd Ave Mount Lawley, Taylor Rd Nedlands) - very extensive BBQ sauce ranges.

>Mild peppers. Not capsicum, but stuff like ortega or poblano (anaheim peppers?), mild chiles like for stuffing for a chile relleno. All I can find are "chilis" which seem to encompass all peppers in one broad stroke while also excluding mild ones somehow?

The major grocery stores are hit and miss and will stock these sorts of peppers sometimes, but not all year round. The larger asian grocery chains mentioned above may be able to assist as well as the smaller greengrocers / fruit and vegetable stores found in most malls. I'd suggest you grow your own if you have the space, they grow super easy in the Perth climate and will provide you with more peppers than you would ever need 9-10 months of the year.

>Chipotle. Powder form is less ideal, but it's better than nothing.

The Spice Wagon in Morley (The market this is inside, Coventry has a MASSIVE range of multicultural food shops and restaurants in addition to this place), you should be able to find Chipotle in Adobo at any of the fancier IGAs or at some of the asian grocery stores already mentioned.

>For the same reason, jellied cranberry sauce

Coles and Woolworths have this (Ocean Spray brand) all year round - albeit in a jar rather than a can.


All major supermarkets should have at least one variety in the dairy case with all the other milk (separate with the other refrigerated misc milks) - often only available in a 600ml bottle though.

>Marinated mushrooms. In the USA, i get them in jars or at the olive bar.

I've seen them in major supermarket in jars / cans, may be referred to by the french term (champignon).

>Stone fruit. Can't find peaches, plums, nectarines, etc.

Seasonal fruit that doesn't tend to get imported from other countries, these are often only available in the summer (November - April at the most).

>Japanese grocery store. Do those exist in Perth?

There are a few (two in Subiaco alone - here and here), however keep in mind that unless you want something really niche the larger asian grocery stores will often have what these two stores stock at a much lower price.

u/Noxzer · 13 pointsr/PS4

It's for the charging station. I use it so that I don't have to fiddle with plugging/unplugging the controllers. You just click them down and you're good to go, station plugs directly into the wall.

Also, it's cheap. Would highly recommend it.

u/AstroFuzz · 13 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have the Hori stand, it has been handy quite a few times and fits in most carrying cases.

Got a Tryone gooseneck to hook on my exercise bike too. Works prety well for the Switch, recommended to me by some other Redditors.

u/sendblink23 · 13 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You can't or else every bluetooth controller would work by default. You need to buy a 3rd party usb bluetooth adapter like this one:

No idea if that thing(xiaomi mi bluetooth gamepad) works for it but ps3, ps4, xbox 360, xbox one, wii u pro controllers do work with the Nintendo Switch with it.

u/Turbulentclusterhunk · 13 pointsr/smashbros

I'm assuming that your controller already connects just fine to your pc. If you need an adapter, i'd recommend the [mayflash] (

Once that's done, you should follow the guide on anther's ladder to properly set up melee for online practice. Instead of the basic 5.0 Dolphin, anther's requires 5.9 Faster Melee build of dolphin. Anyway the guide can be found here:

As for online resources, ssbm tutorials has great videos detailing character specific tech (falco lasers, fox practice drills, marth chaingrab guide, etc.), universal tech (wavedashing, dashdancing, directional influence), and just general pieces of advice to newcomers.

I'd also recommend Uncle Punch training mode. This is a mod of melee's event mode designed to help practice universal tech such as L cancelling, smash di, or ledgedashing.

u/Rodrigo_Loco · 13 pointsr/patientgamers

I think its this one, on mobile and the Amazon app only goes back so far. May Flash N64 Controller Adapter for PC USB by May Flash

u/Mutericator · 12 pointsr/Games

Dunno why you'd pay $24 for a converter when you can just pay $32 plus shipping for a new wired one that you can also use on the 360:

EDIT: Also note the "New from $23.99" as well, so there ya go.

Lone Echo is a great game but only 6-8 hours only other game on your list i have played is Elite Dangerous i have about 800 hours into it, but the game is not for everyone. Watch some youtube before you buy it it can be hard to get into but once you get flying and the controllers down its a lot of fun. If you get ED i suggest a HOTAS this one will work good.

u/Chokaay · 12 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

These are some accessories that I have been happily using...


Tempered Glass Screen Protector & Switch Case/Cover: (screen protector + case)


MicroSDXC Card (recommend 200GB or more):


Switch Carrying Case (slim everyday):


Switch Grip & Carrying Case (travel):


Battery Pack (with Power Direct):


Switch Pro Controller:


Extra Joy-Cons:


Switch Carrying Case (complete kit):

u/mundozeo · 12 pointsr/Switch

Be mindful of what accessories you personally need. People needs are different. The only global accessories that seem to be useful to everyone:

  1. A screen protector. This applies to pretty much any tablet accessory where the screen is not covered by design (like the 3DS clam shell). This is the one I got and it works well ($9.00):

  2. A carrying case. Being portable, odds are you will want to take it out at some point. Seeing it's an expensive piece of hardware, it makes sense to have a case to put everything in it for protection. You can buy the neat ones with colors and crazy designs and space, but for me, this basic one works perfectly fine ($13.00):

  3. An extra charger. Unless you already have a Type C charger, you will likely want to get one. Usually goes for $15.00.

  4. If, and ONLY if you plan to get your games digitally, you WILL want an additional memory card. The one I paste below has enough space for at least 20 games given the average game space that we've seen so far (BoTW takes 14 GB, but Mario Odyssey takes 5.5 Gb, so in average, it evens out.). Note this is only the games you can have installed at a time, you can always remove one or more if you want to download another one, and games you purchase digitally will always be available for re download as long as the eshop exists.

    Any other accessory should REALLY be considered on a need-to basis. Not everyone needs a pro controller (depending on the games you play, I've been fine without it with only BoTW, Mario Kart, Fate/Extella and Mario+Rabbids.), and not everyone needs an extra, improved stand/dock.

    Finally, do some research on what games you will actually want to play. What I've seen is that games on the switch are NOT cheap, and unless you have extra disposable income, buying a game you don't really play can lower your overall appreciation of the system. Not only that, but because releases are sparse at the moment, it's easier to jump into the hype in order to keep using your shiny new hardware. Though that really applies to any console.
u/FadedFromWhite · 12 pointsr/gaming

I'm considering one of these myself

u/KTMDirtFace · 12 pointsr/destiny2

They are bitching. Blizzard/Overwatch lead designer condemned it.

Note: it just converts it to joystick controls and is a pain in the ass, doesn't work right compared to native support.

u/HoochCow · 11 pointsr/EliteDangerous

I had a similiar issue, my old stick was naturally a little loose and hyper sensitive, so just resting my hand on it caused it to input roll because it was loose enough that the idle weight of my tiny little hands was moving it. This resulted in having to make the deadzones WAY bigger than I wanted them to be.

If you're in the market for a new controller heres some options from least to most expensive as well as amazon links for buying them.

Xbox 360 Pad: $28

  • Pros: CHEAP, works, comfortable
  • Cons: Not enough buttons
  • I own one and have played Elite with it

    Steam Controller: $50

  • Pros: Cheapish, works, comfortable, plenty of buttons, overly customizable software options to ensure it just works with everything!
  • Cons: Touchpad in place of traditional D-Pad/Right Joystick can be janky in some games and some people just downright don't like this.
  • I own one and have played Elite with it.

    T-Flight HOTAS X: $50

  • Pros: Cheap, well made, works with PS4 if you're a PS4 commander
  • Cons: No mini analog stick.

    Xbox One Controller + Wireless PC Adapter: $63

  • Pros: Upgrade to the 360 version
  • Cons: Wireless, so batteries.

    Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS: $108

  • Pros: Cheap for a HOTAS, well made, mini analog stick on throttle.
  • Cons: Mini Analog stick is in a weird place (subjective)
  • I do not own this, but I would buy it if I needed another HOTAS

    Xbox One Elite Controller: $140

  • Pros: upgrade over the standard xbone controller
  • Cons: paddles can't be mapped to unique button presses but instead just can be set to emulate other buttons on the controller

    X-52: $150

  • Pros: Looks like the joystick and throttle in Elite.
  • Cons: No ministick on throttle.

    Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS: $449

  • Pros: All Metal Construction, very solid piece of hardware
  • Cons: No Ministick on throttle, No Twist Yaw on the stick, HOLY SHIT BALLS EXPENSIVE, your husband/wife might be angry with you for buying this if they aren't into this kinda thing.


    Okay with the all in one box stuff out of the way there are some good mix and match options from CH Products which I'll list below. My current set up is CH Fighterstick, CH Pro Throttle, CH Pro Pedals, + HTC Vive for headtracking (or ED Tracker for headtracking when I don't want VR)

    CH Flightstick: $75

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, Ambidextrous
  • Cons: Ugly, not a lot of buttons, no twist yaw

    CH Combatstick: $94

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, thumb button.
  • Cons: Ugly, no twist yaw

    CH Fighterstick: $116

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, 4-way Hat thumb switch
  • Cons: Ugly, No twist Yaw
  • I own this and this is my primary stick for Elite

    CH Flight Sim Yoke: $120

  • Pros: Can double as a driving wheel!
  • Cons: No triggers, not a lot of buttons, some players have reported yokes don't work well for twitchy flight gameplay like combat.

    CH Pro Pedals: $121

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, Very Responsive, doubles as gas & brake pedals for driving games!
  • Cons: Pedals are a bit close together, some male players have reported this is uncomfortable, the springs that recenter the pedals are really strong and take getting used to.
  • I own this and it is my primary yaw pedals.

    CH Pro Throttle: $123

  • Pros: Solid Build Quality, very responsive throttle, mini analog stick,
  • Cons: Throttles Physical Range is a bit short, no center indent or tension control, Kinda ugly, mini stick might require high deadzones.
  • I own this and it is my primary throttle

    CH Eclipse Yoke: $201

  • Pros: Good for Flying & Driving, plenty of buttons, and flappy paddles for yaw or gear shifting
  • Cons: No triggers, might not be ideal for combat.
  • I want one.

    Also note that the joysticks and throttles from the Thrustmaster FCS and Warthog can be bought separately making them worth considering as options here.

    FINALLY I will leave you with a word of warning. The Saitek X-55 and X-56 might look tempting, but they have shoddy build quality and will break on you. I used to have an X-55, and I've seen the inside of the X-56 and they both have the same problems. They are a time bomb, do not buy them. Also someone will more than likely eventually comment saying they own one of these devices and have had zero issues out of them, lucky them I hope they never have an issue, but Saitek is known for terrible Quality Control and with the exception of the X-52 buying a Saitek product is not worth the gamble even though Logitech now owns them and is known for great build quality, there are too many items from when Mad Catz owned them floating around in the wild.
u/Raistlen007 · 11 pointsr/hoggit

The Thrustmaster T-1600FM might be around your budget if you can get it.

I would suggest adding a little more and getting the Saitek X52

u/Valkyrient · 11 pointsr/starcitizen

If you're on a budget get the Thrustmaster T.1600M FCS HOTAS kit that comes with the TWCS throttle. Everything cheaper has crap sensors.

EDIT: For convenience:

u/mourning_lemon · 11 pointsr/EliteDangerous

I've always heard the thrustmaster T.16000m hotas is the best "cheap" hotas

I have one, and love it. As far as lateral/vertical thrusters are concerned, there is an analog stick for your left hand pointer finger on the throttle that works great. The stick itself has HALL Effect sensors (same sensors as the very pricey Warthog stick) and is very accurate. It's mostly plastic of course, but at that price point it's a given. The stick buttons (on the base) are kind of useless in VR, but since you aren't running E:D in VR it isn't an issue.

The only real downside is the throttle lubricant from the factory is pretty garbage. I spent a few minutes taking the base off of the bottom and putting some Nyogel 767a lubricant and it has been perfect since.

u/iTzSayem · 11 pointsr/CODZombies

If you want, you could always buy the XIM4. It makes it so that you can use the Keyboard/Mouse on the PS4/XBOXONE.

Fairly expensive.

u/andtheZero · 11 pointsr/SSBM

Dolphin is free. Go to and follow their guide for downloading Faster Melee's most recent version. Faster Melee is a version of Dolphin that runs smoother for online play, and is pretty much required for playing people online using smashladder.

You're gonna need to download an ISO file of melee, which is basically the game ripped from the disc. You can try googling it and it shouldnt be too hard. Careful of sketch websites.

If you've been watching for a while you might know the basic terminology already but the SSBMTutorials youtube channel has a lot of good info about the tech. Basic things like L cancelling and Wavedashing can be a little awkward to understand without being shown.

It's a little tough to get rolling if you don't have a friend to play with all the time that's at your level, but the "Friendlies" tab in smashladder should work ok.

You're gonna need a gamecube adapter. You can buy the official nintendo one, or you can get the Mayflash 4 port. They're basically identical.

u/timrbrady · 11 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I got the Hori stand and I love it. I rarely use tabletop mode, but when I do this is a vast improvement over just using the kickstand.

u/theDreamDaddy · 11 pointsr/SwitchHacks

I personally use my PS4 controller on the Switch with the 8bitdo adapter and it works great wirelessly with rumble and motion as well. Also connects to PC. I haven’t tried it myself but the Xbox One controller should work too.

For any curious, there is also a Mayflash adapter which looks like it does basically the same as the 8bitdo one for around the same price.

u/BraveSirHenry · 10 pointsr/hoggit

I'm assuming you have a T.Flight HOTAS X, which is what I used to use. It's a good HOTAS for the simpler planes like the SU-25T, but you're going to have to get good at using modifiers, or make some concessions.

I'd highly recommend rebinding the slew controls for the TV to the 8 way you're using for trim, or create a modifier for it. DCS was not designed for large amounts of keyboard use, using the keyboard to move all your sensors is not advised.

"I feel like controls could be a bit simpler"

The SU-25 is really as simple as it gets, the aircraft is not fully modelled. The full fidelity modules have the whole cockpit modelled, so all the switches and stuff actually work. I don't want to sound like a "gate keeper", more people getting into DCS is always a good thing, but DCS isn't easy, you need to know what you're in for. It's going to take a lot of time, you're not going to be good in a week, or even a month. Practise practise practise.

You don't specifically need a really good HOTAS for DCS, but it really helps. As waffle also said, don't put your keyboard behind your screen if you need to use it. If you want a good HOTAS recommendation the T.16000M is very good, I own pretty much all the modules, and it's been perfect for all of them.

u/spoonwitz97 · 10 pointsr/hoggit

It's costs a little bit more than your budget, but I've heard nothing but good things about it.

u/Chromegene · 10 pointsr/CoDCompetitive

If you want a cheaper alternative to a custom controller, buy a standard DS4 and this:

u/TheSeed2point0- · 10 pointsr/PS4

I bought one and mine broke within a month or two. The R1 button broke loose in the controller and does not function any more. I never dropped the controller or did anything abnormal to cause the issue. Plus I didn't like the R1/L1 and R2/L2 buttons so much.
That being said, I bought the Strikepack FPS Dominator extension thing that clicks on to your normal DS4 controller, but only has two triggers, one on each side. I really like this device, but it has some tricky nuances that make it not for everyone. It is strictly wired, and you have to unplug the USB or mini USB and plug it back in every time you turn on your controller/console, and same goes if you use a USB headset (the controller has to be plugged in first, then the headset). I play at a desk on a monitor, so it's not a big deal for me, but if you sit on a couch and play on a TV or similar setups, it might not be for you. But it's much cheaper at $40, so it is less of an investment with some of the same features.

u/ollafy · 10 pointsr/Yogscast

If they can round up eight controllers they can use the wireless adapter to play the game together. I have it for two people and it works great!

u/Snookrc · 10 pointsr/xboxone

It's not Bluetooth because MS developed a faster, higher bandwidth protocol utilizing Wi-Fi direct designed specifically to lower latency for gaming.

Your phone cord doesn't work because it's a charging cable, it's missing the data element. You need a micro usb data cable to connect it to a PC.

Here is the wireless adapter

u/bankshaft · 10 pointsr/pcgaming
u/erikb42 · 10 pointsr/Games

No, because there is more to it than story. Over the series Kojima has done a ton of 4th wall breaking and the games are quite self-aware. Honestly, you should pick up the Legacy Pack and give them all a quick run through. The games aren't terribly long, but do have a decent amount of replay ability.

u/villanx1 · 10 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I'm not going to recommend multiplatform games as I'm unsure of whether or not you have a 360/Wii/etc.

  1. Valkyria Chronicles - (Mostly) Turn-based strategy game, with RPG elements. Gets pretty hard (at least for me) decently long.

  2. Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection - Pretty much every canon Metal Gear game. Stealth-Action at it's finest with an insane story and cast of characters. Includes the HD remasters of MGS2 and 3.

  3. Yakuza 4 - RPG/Brawler set in a fictionalized Kabukichō (a well known Red light district in Tokyo). You can spend your time cracking skulls, doing random favors for people, playing mahjong, or chatting it up with a hostess.
u/cocobandicoot · 10 pointsr/PS3

A bit of a novel, but I hope you find this helpful, OP.

First, to comment on what happened on your call with Microsoft: maybe it's possible you just got one of the really bad reps? But then again, they got a supervisor involved and they still wouldn't just fix the situation for you? Especially seeing as you hadn't even used your subscription... that is pretty ridiculous. Well, I'm confident that you'll find the PlayStation experience an enjoyable one.


Honestly, this is probably the best time to try out a PS3. We're closing out on this generation of consoles and some of the best games of the last few years have been PlayStation exclusives. Especially if you've been using an Xbox 360 this whole time, you're about ready to meet a whole new world of incredible titles.

Quick edit: Just wanted to clarify... I'm including links to Amazon just as an easy way for you to learn more about individual titles. But just as /u/undeadwolfy mentioned:

>You can buy most of these pre-owned at a decent price. Some are digital so they're not much cheaper but still great.

So first and foremost, I highly recommend anything by Naughty Dog -- they are arguably the best developer in the entire industry right now. They released four titles on the PS3: Uncharted 1, 2 & 3 (each game is a must-play), and the absolute masterpiece that is The Last of Us. You've probably heard plenty of praise for The Last of Us (and it is well deserved), but I would recommend saving the best for last. It's such an awesome game that, after completing it, nothing else I played interested me anymore. It took like a month to get back into the gaming groove, so I'd save that 'til after you beat the Uncharted trilogy. It's that good.

Aside from that, there are some other great titles I'd highly recommend. I don't know what kind of games you're into, so I'll just list all those that I've liked, personally:

  • Metal Gear Solid saga (MGS 1-3 were released on PS1 & PS2, but they've since been rereleased in HD for PS3, alongside MGS 4).

  • Heavy Rain (A very story driven game, where the choices you make can drastically affect the storyline. Plus... boobs.)

  • Beyond Two Souls (Brand new, just came out. Similar to Heavy Rain in its execution -- story driven.)

  • God of War trilogy (Awesome, mature platformer. The first two games were for PS2, but were released in HD alongside GOW3 on PS3. Also has boobs.)

  • Little Big Planet 1 or 2 (A great couch multiplayer side scroller. Lots of fun, more of a kids game... or a game to play with drunk adults.)

  • Infamous 1 & 2 (An interactive comic book. An "open world" platformer that lets you shoot lightning from your hands. Has a cool element where you can choose to be good or evil.)

    Not to mention plenty of other great exclusives (Rachet & Clank series, Resistance trilogy, Valkyria Chronicles and more) and the tons of PS1 and PS2 games on the PlayStation Store for cheap, playable on your PS3 if you want to go old school. (Not to mention the many PS2 games being rereleased for PS3 in HD glory... I'd recommend Shadow of the Colossus, which happens to be free for PlayStation Plus members this month... hint hint.) Of course, all the multiplatform games are also here (Battlefield, Bioshock, Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, etc.).

  • Oh, did I mention the PS3's online multiplayer is free?
  • And if you've got Netflix, you don't need to pay Sony a cent to watch it (unlike a certain other console's "Gold" requirement).

    That said, however, if you really want to jump in the game, PlayStation Plus is worth every penny -- a ton of free games each month (and we're talking major titles, in addition to a handful of indies), plus a large variety of other system-enhancing features and discounts. And if you're looking at getting a PS4, getting PS+ is a no-brainer. For one, it is required for online multiplayer on the PS4 (no such requirement on the PS3, but hey, they've got to make their money somehow). But what's awesome is that one PS+ account will work across both the PS3 & PS4, and enable you to get free games for each console for as long as you are a subscriber, with free games on the PS4 appearing on day one.

    Welcome to the new age. Now cue up some Imagine Dragons and get ready for a freaking awesome experience. We're glad to have you.
u/GooseRider960 · 10 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

It's up to you. I'd recommend one just for peace of mind. This one is great.

As for battery? Whenever it gets low, really. There's no time you need to charge it at.

u/GalaxyVulpix · 10 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Assuming that Screen protector is plastic, you probably shouldn't use it, all you would be doing is putting plastic on plastic.

I recommend getting a protector made out of Tempered Glass like this instead.

u/data_Jack · 10 pointsr/nintendo

Like others have mentioned there is no way to charge the Switch while on a kickstand; however, short of crafting one for yourself, I found and preordered a nifty stand that has adjustable levels and plenty of room for the charger. Hope this helps anyone

I've been absolutely loving this one:

You can get it for I think $25 in stores. It's not huge and it's really tough so you don't need to worry about throwing it around.

u/WendigoZero17 · 10 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

These are the best cases for handheld consoles

I have the traveler case for my gba, ds, dsi, dsi xl, 3ds, N3DS XL, PSP, Vita, and now switch. They're super rugged, and they will hold 12 games and a charging cord. There's molded cutouts for the triggers on the joycons to keep them from wearing out in the case. You'll get lots of recommendations for the overpriced butterfox case, but this a better case for less money. This thing is a tank.

u/Galen640 · 10 pointsr/Switch

First of all: Screen Protector. Once it's on you never notice it, doesn't hurt to get that extra safety!

I've bought 10 games so far, and I'd say get all of these because I have enjoyed them. BOTW, Splatoon 2, Sonic Mania, Rayman Legends, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (assuming you like DBZ,) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokken Tournament DX, Street Fighter 2 Ultra, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Yooka Laylee.

If I had to pick 3 for you to get to start out then I would pick Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I think that's enough variety to keep you busy for awhile.

A carrying is always a good thing, I'd recommend This case because it's the one I use and does its job.

Accessory wise I have joycon grips which are AMAZING when playing with one joycon.

Also, the grip it comes with is trash. Get the Power A Grip it feels A LOT better in your hands.

As for SD Cards, it depends. I have a 32GB SD card. I mainly buy physical games, The extra space is for screenshots and videos, and download only games, like Sonic Mania, Yooka Laylee, etc. If you're going for digital only then get a 256GB. Sure you won't use a ton of space now, but you might a few years down the line. Also, do NOT get the official Nintendo ones. They are a RIP-OFF! Here are some nice alternatives that will get the job done for A LOT cheaper: 32 GB 64 GB 128 GB and finally 256 GB

If you have any other questions feel free to ask OP, and other (potential) switch owners!

Quick edit: sorry that some links won't be put with the text, no idea what the issue is

u/JackSparrowUSA · 10 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Screen protector, yes; amFilm

Pro controller: I’d say no. My kids (7,6,4 yo) prefer the joycons. For adults, the Pro Controller is a more optimal experience imo.

Battery Life: depends on the game, but call it 3 hours.

Charger: car charger or power bank may make sense of will be in the car for more than a full charge.

Get a carrying case: Butterfox

Other games: Super Mario Odyssey (1-2 players); Snipperclips Plus (retail and digital) and Overcooked (digital only) are good games for 2+ players. To play 3 player you would need an extra set of joycons or a pro controller.

u/Metaldrake · 10 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Save yourself like $6 more and get a Tomoko 87, it's actually mechanical.

Or like $10 more and get a Redragon Kumara or magicforce 68.

u/raucon · 10 pointsr/VideoEditing

I love this mouse.. It takes some time to program, and a PC I believe. But I have every button linked to a hot key so I can zoom in and out, make an edit, add a transition, jump to the next clip, delete, move up or down a track, copy, paste, in, out and many more useful hot keys all in one hand. It's probably doubled my editing speed and I memorized all the buttons in about 2 days. Not a bad price either. Another popular mouse is the Razer Naga Chroma I think you can use a Mac to program that one.

u/nidyz · 10 pointsr/smashbros

This is not true.

There isn't any best controller as it is pure preference, the older controllers generally have a stickbox that feels less resistant than the newer ones.
The coating on the new WiiU controllers is different aswell.

Also the official WiiU adapter has a great 3rd party equivalent from mayflash found here.

u/mako482 · 9 pointsr/wow

Hi guys,
I really need your help. I was thinking of gifting someone a nintendo switch after a few months but I know little to nothing about video games or consoles. I didn't grow up playing video games and have never owned a console. I was hoping you guys could help answer some of my questions and help me.

  • First, is it too late to gift it in several months (around Jan 2018)? Would it be old/out of trend or whatever? In what intervals (months/years) do new designs/consoles come in the video game world?

  • What should I buy? Should I just buy the bundle, does it come with games, should I try to buy some games, if so what are commonly liked ones?

  • How much does it cost exactly? I googled it but the retailers on the nintendo website have varying price. Amazon has it for about 400 bucks, target and gamestop have it for 299 bucks. Why is it so different? Is it the same thing regardless?

  • How is it? How would you describe your experience? Is it much better than consoles in the past? Was it worth the cost?

    Thanks in advance.

I'm loving my [Thrustmaster FCS HOTAS pack] ( (TWCS is the throttle, FCS is the combo)
Default bindings for the throttle aren't there (since it's brand new) but the stick that comes with it is among the most popular (Thrustmaster T16000M). Another advantage of this, if you decide to go dual stick, you already have an ambidextrous one.

If you're on a budget, the [Thrustmaster HOTAS X] ( isn't half bad, but it is decidedly entry level.

Edit: corrected TWCS to FCS and added Amazon links.

u/1sie · 9 pointsr/flightsim

I see someone already mention DCS, but since you mention something to ease in to the world of flight sims, i wouldn't recommend it, at least for now. DCS is as hardocore sim as it gets for civilians.

Then you have FSX, a good compromise between realism/accessibility, though it is kind of a dead game that has no further development.

Another alternative is Take on Helicopters, from Bohemia Interactive, the makers of ARMA.
Decent flight model, lots of mission content that actually puts the flying to use, and comes at a great price. Only downside is it needs a PC with a very good processor to run smoothly.

ARMA3, i suppose is also an alternative, it uses the same flight model, got tons of choppers and has better performance nowadays cause its always being optimized (still needs good CPU though). It´s a military sandbox with much more to do than just flying (infantry, all sorts of vehicles, it's huge) and the flight model has 2 versions, easy, and advances (taken from take on helicopters), the sceneries (maps) are gorgeous and very detailed and i truly enjoy flying in it.


As for controls; the [new thrustmaster HOTAS] ( came out recently, has wonderful reviews. If it´s anything like it's predecessor (which i own), it's unbeatable in price/quality ratio,

u/Didactic_Tomato · 9 pointsr/starcitizen

HOTAS is great and fairly easy to learn, though I heard double joystick is better for control.

I use the Thrustmaster T-16000M HOTAS which I know is pretty popular.

I'm hoping SC will have a preset for this set up at some point, because it becomes way easier to tweak it from a default setup than start completely over (for me).

For reference I've only been using HOTAS for about a month and I'm already 10x better at flying than I was. Also my landing looks way better ;)

u/TemptedTemplar · 9 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

screen protector everyone seems to be using.

As for battery life, there isnt much you can do other than keeping the brightness down or buying a battery pack/ USB-C charger; you will want at minimum 5V at 2.4A (amps). That will charge the system about as fast as the system AC adapter or keep it charged while being played.

Carrying cases, joycon slip covers, dock sleeves, and anything else is really up to you. There is a huge variety of stuff already out there.

u/HothMonster · 9 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I got this one it has been good. It is a bit thick since it is tempered glass but I was more worried about shatter protection than scratches. Otherwise it is perfect. No glue issues, no peeling and it's been docked through 6+ hour sessions. Whatever protector you get or if you just reapply the one you have I would recommend not using it for 8-12 hours to let the adhesive settle.

Figured I should clarify my comments here:

I do not own a Switch yet (plan to get one Black Friday), but I use it all the time on my Wii U and it works flawlessly. Based on reviews, it looks like it works flawlessly on the Switch as well. I can't imagine it would be any different.

  1. Melee disks will be pretty expensive anywhere you find one unless someone knows of some sort of steal. Running it on an emulator can work if you have a legit gaming rig and a Mayflash adapter for your controller.

  2. Melee runs just fine on a Wii.

  3. Holy hell, ditch that abomination of a controller and please never make me look at that again. This is the go-to controller for smashers to buy, and its price has dropped by almost 50% in the past months, so get it now for sure.

  4. Depending on context, "tech" either is shorthand for technology, which is applied advanced techniques, or is referring to pressing L or R right before hitting the ground from being launched by an attack, causing you to either roll or get up quickly depending on how you hold the control stick.

Spesifikt den her:

Fikk den donert til meg da jeg var på SGDQ 2016, før jeg fikk den brukte jeg en svart Smash 4 Gamecube-kontroller.

u/ed1380 · 9 pointsr/gaming

You need to hack one of these in there

u/MyDadCantCount · 8 pointsr/smashbros

What you need to get started playing Melee:

  1. A Nintendo Wii (in case you ever become interested in Project M) available for about $40+ various places on the internet. Try to get the white one as some of the black models does not have slots for Gamecube controllers. Make sure the Wii has the sensor bar, power cables, AV cables, at least 1 wiimote. You also need a Gamecube Memory card so you can save the game. Alternatively if Wii isn't your thing you could purchase a Gamecube bundle like this.

  2. A Wired Official Nintendo Gamecube Controller (negates wireless interference at large tournaments) available from anywhere from about $10+ Used on eBay to about $40 new on Amazon. Let me stress again OFFICIAL Nintendo controller, third parties are generally shoddy and not worth the investment regardless of their price.

  3. A copy of Super Smash Bros Melee, price normally fluctuates from $30-$60 depending on site and demand.

  4. A CRT television. The big ol' chunky ones. These are the only kinds of TV that do not have input delay for Melee. You can find them for free on craigslist or can buy one at a garage sale or thrift store for $5-10 dollars. Make sure it has AV hookups and a remote or a built in button to switch the inputs. Remember to lift with your legs or get a friend to help cause they can be heavy (my main one is 42" and 300lbs).

  5. A Smashboards Account. Everything Smash related can be found there. Character discussions, tourny info, ect...

    Extra suggestions:

  • Find human opponents in your area ASAP. You'll probably lose and lose badly but you learn infinitely more than playing against CPUs. Finding good players who are willing to show you the ropes is key.

  • Watch this and Go Here to learn advanced techniques.

  • Once you get a feel for all the characters choose the one you like best and stick to them as this will help you improve faster. This is the most current Melee tier list, which is basically a power ranking of characters. That said, do not take it too seriously, anyone in S or A tier is generally viable and even those below it are feasible if you put in the time and effort (just look to this subreddit's hero aMSa who consistently puts up amazing results with Yoshi)

  • If you're not having fun you're probably not playing right.

  • I strongly recommend watching The Smash Bros documentary it was created and funded by the community and gives a really in depth look into the history of competitive Melee.

  • If you want to play Project M (the second most popular Smash game currently) you need a copy of SSB Brawl, a 2gb SD Card, and the hackless edition PM files.

    Hopefully that helps. If you have any other questions I can try my best to answer them tomorrow.

For anyone who wants to pick up a gamecube controller, these have been on sale for a long time now and, honestly, I have been recommending them over the Smash Bros edition since before those even went out of stock. The build quality is a little bit nicer.

u/Shifty_Snowman · 8 pointsr/smashbros

Well you can buy this
and have shitty R and L buttons

or spend $50 more on this
and have not shitty R and L buttons and lose because of the reason you stated. So yes this is an issue in the community already. Albeit to a smaller degree, but the fact of the matter is that there is currently different performance controllers for different price ranges.

u/Applegravy · 8 pointsr/gaming

that sounds amazing. if only I had such a section at one of my local stores. I'm still missing a few Gamecube games I want very much. part of why I haven't simply found and bought those is because I'd rather not spend more than $30 on a used copy of a 10 year old game. is there anything good in those cabinets?

another note for you, you need a pretty great computer to run Dolphin properly. if I had a dedicated GPU I could do that no problem, but an Intel 2450M with integrated graphics runs Dolphin very slowly. Dolphin is still very bloated, and there's a lot they can probably flatten out as time goes on, but right now, I don't have the power for it. considering that this is a 2 year old computer trying to run something designed for 13 year old hardware, it isn't just my lack of a phenomenal GPU, since Intel Integrated 3000 is comparable to a top of the line Geforce card from about 5 years ago, but as it is right now, you need a beastly computer to run a Gamecube emulator. it isn't that simple for everybody.

the nostalgia factor isn't a problem for me, because with an adapter and one of my many Gamecube controllers, I can map out my stuff the right way and play with the real controller, much like I already do with the N64. with the original controller, the nostalgia is basically the same, without as much hassle in as many ways, and with the ability to play rom hacks. for me, that's a win. that said, I like having the actual hardware as well.

u/tyjo99 · 8 pointsr/SSBM

Intel 530 HD will run melee at any resolution under 1080p. This one will probably work or this ebay filter. Any intel gen 6 laptop processor will work for the most part. You only need a graphics card that has a passmark score of about that can match or beat this if you want to run Project M a much more graphically intensive game on 2 monitors.


  • Buy a laptop that has 2 USB ports on the same side if you want to use rumble
  • Buy a laptop that has a low lag display, (aka most gaming laptops)
  • Buy a laptop that comes from a reasonably reputable source.
  • Dedicated GPU's are nice but not required
  • Use a Mayflash or Wii U adapter, most others will break very fast

    Other places to look:


u/ItsKipz · 8 pointsr/smashbros

PSA: Mayflash makes a clone adapter that works on Wii U, PC, and Switch just as perfectly as the official one and can be found easily on Amazon for under $20.

EDIT SECONDARY PSA: 8BitDo also makes a wireless 1-port adapter for switch and PC that allows you to connect a single controller to your Switch wirelessly, in tabletop, handheld, or docked mode.

u/dygeron92 · 8 pointsr/TwoBestFriendsPlay

I also remember that this Mayflash adapter can be used to play Nintendo Switch games with the GameCube controller. Apparently it's more compatible with that system than the official Wii U GameCube Adapter, but that was from a few months ago so I don't know how compatible it is now. The adapter is also $18.

u/largepanda · 8 pointsr/pcmasterrace

OP used the official Wii U adapter, which is bloody expensive. I'd recommend the Mayflash adapter instead, which can behave either as the official adapter or can rewrite the inputs to a standard controller for use in things that aren't Dolphin.

u/Broseph_McTatertots · 8 pointsr/Games

If you can find the official Gamecube adapter and don't decide to flip it on ebay for 5x the MSRP, there's that. It needs a special driver but that's not a big deal.

A better choice might be the recently re-released Mayflash GC adapter. This is it here. There are other models but this is the newest and best third-party one.

u/FenrirW0lf · 8 pointsr/smashbros

People shouldn't buy that particular adapter anymore. It's old, has input delay, and has bad drivers on top of it. Mayflash makes a better version these days that's compatible with both Smash 4 and native input in Dolphin.

u/stealthboy · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Wait, your commuting time is 5 hours of your life each day? Sorry, but that sounds miserable and you should really think about a lifestyle change.

Sometimes I take my Switch on the bus and use a slim case so it doesn't take up much room in my laptop backpack. Works well for me. I've taken it with me off and on since launch day with zero problems.

I would imagine something like this would work just fine:

Then, if you are going to take it anywhere, possibly a travel case. Most people speak highly of:

u/osrs_h1n1 · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Going Physical for all games that are released that way. This way if I invest in a game that turns out to be sour (they're all sour if you lick them) I can trade it in or sell it. If you buy digital, you're stuck with it.

I'm rocking the RDS travel case which has 8-slots for games. So dealing with the cartridges isn't a big deal and I love displaying my video game boxes on my shelf.

Edit: I also have Amazon Prime, so all of my pre-orders and games that have been out less than 2 weeks are 20% off. So the games I want at launch I get cheaper than buying digitally.

u/EpicCakes · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Just to add on, if you travel a lot or plan on taking it on the go, a case would be a good investment. Personally, this case has worked great for me . Also congrats on winning a Switch that's pretty awesome.

Take a look at the 16000m FCS:

Personally I think it's a much better option than the X52, both in terms of build quality and precision.

u/kinggimped · 8 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Unless you're rich and just happy to splurge on whatever's the top of the line, just get a cheap one to start with. Most people start with the Thrustmaster T.Flight HOTAS X, which is cheap and plasticky but it has all the buttons you need and works absolutely fine. I have 1000+ hours in E:D and have never felt the need to upgrade from this HOTAS, though I'll probably get something better when it eventually breaks.

If you find you really like the HOTAS experience and feel like you want to dump some money into it, then you can get something like the Thrustmaster T 1600M or the Logitech X52.

And if you really like it and want to go higher end, there are a few options for that. Just be warned that they start to get real expensive.

u/odpixelsucksDICK · 8 pointsr/flightsim

Depends on your budget.

I'd recommend this if your budget allows for it.

If not, the Logitech 3D Pro is the best stick for your money imo.

I'd recommend picking up pedals especially if you're into general aviation flying but definitely get a joystick as your first purchase. As far as yokes go, the lower end ones are generally not worth it and the next options are in the $400-500+ USD range. Some users are happy with their CH/Saitek yokes but I didn't have a great experience with them.

u/mattyod93 · 8 pointsr/ffxiv

Honestly i used to do stuff like this all the time. But it still felt way too busy for me. So i bought a mouse with 12 buttons on the side as i play a lot of mmos. It's honestly so nice i only use my keyboard for WASD, CTRL, ALT and Shift. Everything else is bound to my mouse. I could never go back now.

If you're looking to get one i recommend (like many) the Razer Naga. Or if you're on a budget (Like me) I found this one on amazon:

It does the job and I've no complaints with it. It even comes with it's own program so you can change the macros on it.

Here is my UI in game:

u/ItCanAlwaysGetWorse · 8 pointsr/wow

just to give you an idea or some inspiration, this is my setup:

I play Beast Master, a ranged DD
W - forward
S - backward
A - strafe left (not turn)
D - strafe right (not turn)
note: I dont have keybindings for turning around, I use the mouse for that by holding right mouse button

1 - one of the main abilities I use all the time
2 - main ability for AoE
3 - 6 utility abilities like stun, slow, misdirection etc. - situational abilities that I dont need all the time.

Q - one of the main abilities
E - one of the main abilities
I also bound the following keys:

All keybinds except C also have a Shift and/or Ctrl modifier.
My essential keybinds are Q, E, R, 1 and 2 by themselves and also with Shift held down, that's 10 keybinds.

to be fair, I also bought a cheapo 35€ MMO-mouse which has 12 thumb buttons, those are mostly utility skills or things like pre-pot, health potion/healthstone, keybind for mounting up etc. BUT I also have 1 important ability on there: my interrupt.

I also use OPie to further decrease the amount of keybinds I need for all the things I wanted to access relatively fast. On my OPie rings I also just use stuff I dont need in the middle of the combat, because using OPie in combat takes too long.

Now your question regarding movement: While holding W with my middle finger, I can easily press 1, 2 and Q with my ring finger. 3-6, which I usually dont need while moving forward, can still be accessed with the index finger easily enough.
While holding D with my index finger, I use my middle finger to press Q, E, R and 1-4.
While holding A with my ring finger, I use my middle finger to press Q, 1 and 2. I use my index finger for E, R, F and 3-6.
You will need to twist your wrist to reach certain keybinds while pressing others simultaneously, but this is really not a problem.

Also might be worth noting: F is also a utility keybind for me, not part of my damage rotation. F is my movement skill (disengage for Hunters, Blink for mages etc.) while Shift + F is my self-heal. C is just my move pet command.

There actually is an adapter to get Gamecube to Wii U. You can purchase it here

u/kitsovereign · 8 pointsr/Games

There are a few options right now - The Mayflash adapter lets you connect a GCN controller to a Wii remote and have it spoof a Classic Controller. Additionally, the PDP Wired Fight Pad and HORI Battle Pad are Classic Controllers, but modeled after the classic Gamecube controller shape.

There's always the chance that Nintendo will make the GCN adapter work for things other than SSB for Wii U, but I'm not sure I'd hold my breath. Honestly if they just made it work in Wii mode it'd be amazing.

u/FreshPaprikazzz · 8 pointsr/metalgearsolid

I've said to this every newbie and I will say it to you as well: just play the games. Reading wikis or other peoples' plot summaries just doesn't work with Metal Gear games -- it really doesn't. You just have to experience it by yourself.

If you want the easy but not as effective way to learn what's going on - sure - you can watch the Digital Graphic Novels or cutscenes from YouTube, but I'd personally just lock you in a bunker with the Legacy Collection and let you out once you've finished the whole series.

u/seehanth001 · 7 pointsr/gaming

No, but it's possible to connect a Gamecube controller a Wii Remote as if it was a Wii Classic Controller.

I don't think so, in July the Metal Gear Solid Legacy collection is going to be released that includes MGS 1,2,3,4, Peace Walker, VR missions, and the original Metal Gear 1 and 2 for $50. You'll get a lot more bang for your buck and can experience the entire story.

u/liquidhot · 7 pointsr/PS3

From the Amazon page: The Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition

I don't know if i understood correctly but if you don't know wich games are for each console

On the PS1 you can only play MSG1

On the PS2 you can play MGS2 and 3, and if you have the "Subsistence" version of 3 it also includes the original Metal Gear 1 and 2.

Or you can sell everything and get a PS3 with the Legacy collection wich includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition. It also includes Metal Gear Solid 1 and VR Missions voucher codes.

u/CoryBoehm · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Some recommended Switch accessories:

  • A tempered glass screen protector such as ORLZY, Spigen or AMFilm. All are excellent only reason AMFilm gets more recommendations as it was first to market.

  • A protective case like Hori Tough Pouch

  • Hori LAN Adapter if you play online lots as the Switch has very weak WiFi service. Also other lan adapters may work but only the Hori one is officially supported.

  • Hori Play Stand if you frequently play in table top mode or need to charge while in table top mode.

  • Pro Controller

  • The [Google Pixel USB C-C charger] ( as it is easy to find locally, even on sale, and more compact than the Nintendo one but it won't power the dock.

  • Nintendo A-C cable (comes with the Pro Controller)

  • Your choice of headphones

  • A larger bag such as Butterfox Carry All case to hold your EDC (every day carry).

  • PowerA Cartridge Cases if you need extra game storage on the go (comes in several designs).

  • RAVPower 26800 PD a battery pack with both Type C in and out such as this one. Type C is means quicker charging and Type C out to safely power the Switch while using it.

  • PowerA Hybrid Cover might also be of interest to some people. I have not used it though as it is not my style. There are a few different colour/designs.

Wireless Adapter/ Dongle

Mayflash adapter (Converts wireless Dongle to Nintendo Switch)

Xbox 360 Controller.

If you already have a controller and it’s a bit worn out, rebuild kits can be purchased online or you can buy another 360 controller.

It’s overall same price as a Pro Controller for this setup but I prefer the bigger thumb sticks and more fluid buttons of the Xbox controller. Vibration features also work so it’s incredible imo.

u/jasonnjester · 7 pointsr/PS4

To add one to an existing controller, you can buy on of these contraptions that u/Azerius recommended:

or send it to a controller modding shop, there are several online, including Scuf.

there's also these crazy mutant-alien atrocities made by avenger that simulates this kind of functionality using levers lol:

if you think that thing is crazy, check out the xbox ones...

You could also frankenstein it by finding a mechanical button, mount it under the remote and solder it to the contacts that you want it to mimick

u/ImMilky · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

As far as Amazon goes, best advice is to be on the ball. You can go HERE to click the [Email Me] button, ensuring that you're updated when preorders go live. A solid guess is that it will go live after the Jan 12th presentation, but you better have it now to be sure.

As for in-store, I'm calling Gamestop one of these days to see if they already take pre-orders. People have reported that SOME stores are taking pre-orders now, and others will obviously wait for the Jan 12th presentation. So if you want a midnight release or in-store release, make sure to call some places now just to be sure.

u/AmiiboSteal · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The chances of a website with a high profile product such as the switch is likely and possible of crashing, although in cases like those, it's always great to have the app installed onto your phone. I've been able to preorder items with high demand, like the switch through the app, and also by monitoring its offer listings on Amazon, instead of the direct URL. Typically the item will appear first on the offer listing page, and then it'll appear on the direct URL to the product page. Feel free to bookmark this:

u/StunnyTrangaroo · 7 pointsr/nintendo

I bought this Nintendo Switch Case and it carries up to 8 games with it plus two SD card cases that would each fill in one of those 8 game slots. Very nifty!

I rarely take my 3DS with me at all. But when bringing my games along, I had a separate case for that one too.

u/Sheecacaa3 · 7 pointsr/SSBPM

There's a bunch of guides and stuff as soon as you first enter the site.

>I want to do anther's ladder but I don't know exactly what it is

It's a match-making website where you can find matches, and chat with people in real time. The matches can be anything from Bo3 to Bo5 'ranked' ladder matches, to endless friendlies, to doubles matches. Basically, anything you could do at your local tourney, you can do on Anther's. (except money matchs afaik)

>Can I access it on my wii?

I mean.. maybe? You'd want to use your computer/mobile device if possible.

>Do I have to use an emulator on my laptop?

For Project M, most likely. You'd be hard pressed to find other people that still use the Wiimfi servers and play on their Wiis. The official way to play PM on Anther's is Dolphin Emulator, and there are plenty of guides to set it up, as well as optimize it if you have a slower computer.

>Can my laptop even run project m smoothly?

Well I play it on my laptop, and it runs fine (I even record while playing most of the time). Most modern computers can run it pretty well. It really depends on your specs though. You could get a lot of advice about that, but nothing beats just trying it out on your own and seeing if it works or not.

>If it is on my pc, than how am I supposed to use a gamecube controller?

There are multiple ways to get a Gamecube controller working on a computer, but the easiest/best ways are the official WiiU adapter or the Mayflash 4 Port adapter. They're both the best you can get in terms of lag reduction, but the mayflash is cheaper.

>Either way, how much lag is usually on it? I don't want to throw my timing off.

That really depends on your connection, your opponent's connection, and your own computer. It's usually anywhere between 10ms and 100ms of lag. I usually don't even play with people if the ping is over 60ms. (EC privilege lol) Many top players use netplay for a variety of reasons. Yes, the timing can throw you off if you're jumping from netplay to a tournament set, but if you take the time to adjust properly, then it really shouldn't be a problem. The MU experience and massive variety of playstyles you'll learn is something that Smashers have only dreamed of until recently.

I highly recommend netplay if you can get it working. Almost everyone has troubles setting it up at first, including myself, so don't get upset if it takes a couple days to get it working. I've probably clocked in over 1000-2000 hours on Netplay. It's great!

Hope this helps. Good luck!

u/Smilotron · 7 pointsr/SSBM

What sort of information did you need? What you heard is correct. Using any digital TV will require signal conversion from the Gamecube's analog output to a digital input for the TV, which takes a non-trivial amount of time to process. When going from a CRT to a digital TV, there is a noticeable delay between when you press a button and when you can see the move on the screen. It is best to try and find a CRT to practice on. They can be easily found on Craigslist, and people in your region's Melee Facebook group will probably post about available CRTs frequently.

If you don't have a CRT to practice on, then it might be best to get Faster Melee (An optimization of the Dolphin emulator to better emulate Melee) and an adapter and practice on your computer. This should have less lag than plugging your console in to a digital TV.

> I want to play co op lego games with my nieces and nephews, I want to play split screen with my mates, then watch a bluray with my mrs of an evening

Lego with the little guys? Got it! Even checked to make sure they were local co-op.

You'll probably have to go a bit outside your comfort zone for local co-op with friends, but that is also a dying feature for consoles too. However, if you're cool with some indie games... Gotta recommend Samurai Gunn specifically. That game is god damn amazing! You and your friends will fuckin' die laughing while you deflect bullets, cut off each others heads, jump up walls, get impaled on spikes, and crushed by big ass boxes.

Blu-Ray? Got it!

> I want to do this on the big screen, in the living room, on my couch not alone at a desk in another room on a smaller screen

BAM! Use the controller you already have. Wireless from the couch, no problem. Just plug it in and go.

Use an HDMI cable to plug that bad boy up to your TV, son!

Need to use the mouse for a second while your on the couch? Shit, we got you!

And if that ain't enough, wireless keyboard and mouse is like $20.

> I want to swap games with my friends

Yeah, bro. Us too.

> I want to play offline

Got you fam.

> I want to buy discs

Then buy them. Amazon and Gamestop and every other big store sells discs too.

> I want to do all this quickly, easily and consistently and I don't want to spend a months wages, and more every 6 months, to do so

Building the computer is as simple as building a lego set. It takes a couple hours to initially set up, but it only needs done once. After that, it's just as easy as pressing the home button on your xbox to launch steam big picture and choose your favorite game to play.

PCs will be more than a console upfront. You will spend more than $300 on a PC, but not much more unless you want to. If you factor in the price of a couple games and a year of XBOX live or PSN, PC is already cheaper.

Plus, where are you going to find sales like this?

They happen damn near constantly on PC. New game you want isn't on sale? No worries. Green Man Gaming has a 20% off coupon every month that can be applied to any game they have. Save yourself $12 right there without even needing a sale.

You don't have to upgrade any more frequently than you want. The consoles are on 2012 tech. Games will stay with that as a baseline until new consoles come out.

All that said, look here for a parts breakdown with prices of various price ranges:

I'd recommend The Crusher as a baseline, then maybe asking over at /r/buildapc if you need help or want to make changes. I know you said you don't like PCMR, which is fine... The circlejerk gets old for us too... But there a ton of great communities on reddit for this. Maybe try /r/pcgaming as it's a bit more mature.

One thing I will say about PCMR is that they are most goddamn generous sub out there. Constantly giving away games, components, monitors, etc. and surprisingly helpful, but you do have to get past the kids and the circlejerk to see that.

If you do decide to look into, like I said, /r/buildapc is a great resource to start and you can also free to PM me if you'd like.

Have a good one, brother!

u/mattfloyd · 7 pointsr/gaming

As long as it's not an insurmountable distance from your PC to your TV, you can run an HDMI cable and a USB extension between them. Then buy one of these and you're set:

u/CaptainClough · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Definitely a Screen Protector

A Travelling Case would be nice.

I also added Dr Scholls Moleskin to the front of my dock to reduce the risk of scratching the screen protector. (Two small strips on the parts inside the dock that are raised.)

A Memory Card also helps for the digital only games.

What color Switch did you get? I got the grey switch then bought a pair of Red Joycons and another pair of Blue Joycons. So in total I have a grey, red, and blue L Joycon and a grey, red, and blue R Joycon.

If you got the grey switch and then buy the [two color Joycon packs] ( then you won't be able to get one of each color for L/R without over paying. This is because the [two color Joycon packs] ( are always Red L and Blue R.

If you bought a neon switch, then buy the [two color Joycon pack] ( and a pair of Grey Joycons for all combinations.

Also, don't buy Joycons on Amazon, they are stupid expensive right now.

I don't have a pro controller yet, but people seem to love it.


Zelda = Must Buy

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe = Must Buy

1-2 Switch = Great for parties/friends

Snipperclips = Great for people who don't play games often (girlfriends/parents/kids). Secret here is to not explain how to play/what to do and let them have fun and try to figure out the puzzles on their own. Act like a support character and you'll have a blast watching them.

Binding of Isaac = I love this game, but put countless hours on the PC version. Mature themes

Super Bomberman R = Classic mode with easy CPUs is fun for roommates. I haven't played through the adventure mode yet.

Wonderboy = Cute/Fun side scroller.

Has Been Heroes = I don't have this yet, apparently very difficult.

Other notes:

I started collecting amiibos after getting a switch (Be very careful, it's easy to get addicted and drop a ton of money here).

I got a Joycon charging dock since the only way to charge extra pairs of Joycons without the Joycon charging dockis to rotate them in and out of the switch while it charges/docked.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

PS I love the Switch so much. It's definitely my favorite console ever.

u/Lorben · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hello fellow gamer dad.

First and foremost, get a screen protector. The Switch has a plastic screen so it can scratch easily. Moving on.

Mario Kart is a good start for a young gamer. It has assists in the game that help keep you on the track, which is the most frustrating part of the game for new players. It's not super obvious about it so your kid won't feel like they're being helped.

There's a Black Friday bundle that includes a Switch with Mario Kart 8 for $300, the normal price of the system without a game. Best Buy and Target have advertised the bundle, other places will likely have it as well. Be aware that there was a revision of the Switch that came out a couple months ago and the bundle includes the older version. The difference is that the battery lasts for around 3 hours in the old model and 5 hours in the new. There's no functional differences so it depends on if the battery life is important to you.

The controllers are OK for a 7 year old to use. Any new thing takes some time to get used to, but it's not too bad for them.

While quite few games allow you to play multiplayer with each of you using a single Joycon, your adult sized hands will thank you if you get a Pro Controller. Some games, like Minecraft or Lego City Undercover, require you to have a full controller, either two Joycons in a grip or a Pro controller. If you get a Pro controller as a second controller you won't have to worry about if a game supports single Joycon multiplayer.

Some other good games for new players

  • Kirby Star Allies

  • Yoshi's Crafted World

  • Pokemon Let's Go Eevee or Pikachu

    All of these have local co-op so you can play together. All also support two people each using a single Joycon to play together.

    They also all have demos on the eShop where you can download and try a piece of the game. Since you don't know what your daughter will like you could play through the demos with her first before buying. You can't put that under a tree though, so if you want to have something for Christmas, the above 3 plus Mario Kart would be my suggestion for a new young player to play with her dad.

Yes definitely, as the screen is plastic and scratches easily. I'd recommend this one - easy install, looks great and adds a premium feel to the Switch.

u/ChiefsRoyalsFan · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This is the one I'm getting. I had the Orzly one preordered but it wasn't showing a ship date until a month later. These are showing arrival by the 10th. It's also $2 cheaper.

u/RDDanna · 7 pointsr/SSBM

if you want to play on your computer, I'll recommend the most recent dolphin netplay build, that and complete instructions can be found here.

Of course, you will need a ROM of melee which you should definitely obtain legally and not through a download of it somewhere on the internet.

You will need a controller. I recommend looking at your nearest thrift store, or joining the facebook group for your local melee scene and asking if anyone would be willing to sell one to you. Or you can buy a new smash 4 controller.. Also you'll need an adapter to play on your computer, the mayflash 4 port is the best and cheapest option, but if you already have a wii u with gamecube adapter you can make that work too. Either way follow this guide to set it up. (make sure it's on wii u mode if you end up with the mayflash adapter)

All this being said, this is not the best way to play melee. The best way will always be to play on a wii or gamecube with a CRT TV (long story short, they have way less lag than HD TVs). If you really end up getting into melee you'll end up going this route eventually anyways, so for that I'd recomend agin your local scene for a gamecube/wii and a copy of melee, though copys of melee can be a bit expensive. For a CRT, check craigslist in your area, or just like streetcorners, you shouldn't have too much trouble finding one. Worst case, your local thrift store will probably only overcharge you a little for a decent CRT.

If you don't want to deal with buying a copy of melee. Then you can mod your wii to play a rom of melee. I recommend the 20xx hack pack that is made for melee training. It has a bunch of stuff you can learn to use, but you can also just play regular games on it, so it's good for everything outside of serious tournament use. Here's the official step by step guide for getting 20xx onto your wii.

Outside of that I think your best option is to see if there's any smash fests or tournaments going on around you and just go, hang out with people and play as much as you can.

Also, just some friendly advice, as great of a resource this reddit, or smashboards, or people in general can be, not everything everyone says is accurate, so do your research.

Have fun, and welcome!

PS, no hate for CS:GO from me. Plus I don't think you'll find too much hate for it here in general since mango plays it.

EDIT: I forgt my biggest piece of advice for new players. Spacing is as important, if not more important than tech skill. Make sure you're movement has a purpose. Good luck Dude/Dudette

u/JBridge · 7 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Or you could use one of these third-party adapters.

u/Trunen · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

RDS and Nintendo make some great hard cases, but there is another case that a lot of companies have copied from eachother that was well done... Surge being one of them. They are a little softer and don't have a carry handle, but are still great cases.

u/Ramp_Rat · 7 pointsr/redorchestra

sure, I'll copy/paste here:

The higher-end ones tend to be what's called a H.O.T.A.S (Hands On Throttle And Stick). essentially this is a packaged deal with a joystick and throttle quadrant, and is useful for not having to take your eyes (or hands) off the throttle and stick while flying. Some of these can be expensive like the Thrustmaster Warthog, considered the high end of the sticks. The issue with this as well, is it's modeled off a A-10 Warthog's inputs, so you'll also need to get rudder pedals as well since there is no Z-axis twist on the stick.
For more budget options, I have heard really great things about the T-16000 M. You can also buy the stick and throttle separately if you dont have the cash for both right now.

Another company is VKB, a Russian company but uses magnetic "MARS" sensors. I actually use their Black Mamba and love it, however the item has since been discontinued and the company itself is hard to get hold of. They currently have affordable sticks modeled on the German KG12 - flight stick used in BF109's and FW 190's (although no throttle quadrant with it). Available on Amazon its called Gladiator

Saitek makes several sticks, however they're in a transitioning period. They were just bought-out by Logitech and some people have complained about quality issues with their newer sticks and lack of customer support, so I'd only recommend them if you can get a great deal on a stick on sale, or possibly a used one for cheap. Their models are the X52 Pro, X-55, and X-65. I had the 52 Pro and never had any issues, but its one of those buy beware moments with them right now.

And then there's really affordable sticks that work fine too, such as the logitech extreme 3d pro and Thrustmaster T-Flight X. These are reliable sticks that lack some of the fancy things like buttons and dials for radiator management for example. I know guys who fly using these and love it.

Another thing that is highly recommended to get, but is not required to play the game, is called a Track IR. If you watch in my video, I'm swiveling my head back and forth to check my 6, and make sure theres no enemy aircraft diving on us. I'm not using the mouse, or any input to look around, rather I have a clip on my headset that uses IR sensors to turn my head in game without having to take my hands off the HOTAS. Here's a video of how it works. Again, not necessary to buy, but one of those things to hope to get down the road. There are free alternatives called Freetrack which uses a webcam, I think. I havent messed with that but I know a few guys who do use it and are happy with it.

I think thats a fairly decent summary. Feel free to PM with any questions, or check out our group's forums if you'd like to do some more research

You can also check out r/hotas which is a great community dealing with news, special offers, user reviews, etc

Even so, I grabbed one of these cradles to easily store/charge my controllers when not in use. But even so, I've been able to do 8 hour sessions of Assassin's Creed and inFamous and the controllers were still fine afterwards. I don't think I'd need more time than that... I do need to get up and eat every now and again.

Razor Naga didn't even last a year. Very poor build quality.

I've had a Redragon Perdition mouse for past couple years and it's been great and it was half the price of the Naga.

EDIT: One thing nice about the side buttons is that they are slanted like a very shallow V, so you know exactly which buttons you are touching. Only thing you have to keep track of, and it's very easy to, is which set of V's you are in (1-6 first set of V, 7-12 for the second set).

u/justhere4inspiration · 6 pointsr/classicwow

Razer is a scam, IMO their products just don't hold up that well for the ridiculous price tag. Everything I've bought from them is now broken, and I won't buy anything else. It's all marketing. Personally, I prefer logitec but I decided for WoW I'd try just picking up a cheapo MMO mouse, and honestly so far it's been great. I've been using it for around a year, started on PServers, and had zero issues so far:

It's that brand and has the same side button configuration but whichever one I have doesn't have all the RGB lights all over it. Less than half the price of a naga, and has a thumb shelf.

Playstation can have a wireless headset with Dolby 7.1 surround for $75:

The cheapest one I found on XB1 is $120 and has stereo sound. WTF?

u/bravebreaker · 6 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

Get these, seriously:

Only $100 at the moment, 4.5 stars out of 5 stars from 1,347 customers at the time of this post.

It is wireless, has really good sound quality, 7.1 surround sound, good bass response. Not to mention there is the playstation headset app you can download after you purchase these, the app lets you download a sound preset into your headphones specifically tuned for Destiny. And you can do this for the most popular games on PS4.

I have these and absolutely love them, sound quality is great and my GF never complains as I have all the audio (chat and game audio) coming into the headphones instead of the external speakers.

This isn't really an issue, but more a tip if you get them, every now and then you might some sound issues or your buddies you're playing might say hey your mic keeps cutting out etc. Turn off the headset and unplug the little wireless usb receiver for the headset, plug it back in and turn the headphones back on and you're good to go.

u/OpticalNecessity · 6 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

For VoG/Crota, not really. Especially if you grab a sherpa run, where someone explains all the mechanics for you.

Getting into KF, though, a mic is pretty necessary as a lot of communication is needed from all members.

I own the Playstation Headset which are falling apart but I refuse to get rid of. Save up and buy a pair. I'm sure the newer "gold" model are good as well, I just have no personal experience with them.

nah you want to buy one of the adapters Nintendo made when Smash Wii U or Smash Ultimate came out, or one of the Mayflash offbrand ones. Then you can practice with your real controller which will lag less in the emulator.

Personally, for me, I believe that the best case is the Sheikah Slate that comes with BotW SE. EB and Best Buy both said that they will have it, so be on the look out for them, cuz amazon is out.

The same case, with different designs, is made by PDP. You can get them via these links: 1, 2, 3, 4.

This one is quite close to the Sheikah Slate as well, but it doesn't ship to where I am, so I'm not sure it would ship to you.

PDP also has this amazing looking soft canvas cases if you're interested: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

You could also go with Hori hard case, which is ugly af, but looks extremely sturdy. But then the actual case from Nintendo (it's not available yet, just wait for it I guess?) is quite close to the Hori one as well, I guess.

I'm throwing all those links at you, because, I have NO idea who Biogenik are and a quick Google doesn't result in anything positive about them.

As for screen protector, for me generally, any film protector would make the screen look worse. They are also a lot more likely to get scratches than the screen alone. I'd recommend a tempered glass screen protector if you get one at all. Here are some, one from Orzly, and one from CaseBase. Orzly seems like the better choice since you get 2, and their other tempered glass protectors are very highly rated.

u/AvoidingIowa · 6 pointsr/Games
u/BombTicker · 6 pointsr/smashbros

you can get an adapter online I believe mayflash makes one, also you can get the new white controller for like 36$ on amazon. Let me find you the links one sec... that is the controller and is the adapter. Also why the fuck does the url for that last link say B00BS lol its like someone is fucking with us! hahaha. But a tilt is just when you SLIGHTLY move your control stick up, down or forward and press A and you will do a tilt attack that is weak and is great for comboing/juggling for most characters. You can do it with your wiimote + nunchuck itll just be bad. Also play Project M as it has melee physics since if you have a wii U u probs wont be playing melee anytime soon so you can get good without having the game.

u/davidvkimball · 6 pointsr/smashbros

There is sort of a solution. Check out my video here.

Basically, there's an adapter (link to amazon here) that connects from your Wii Remote to your GameCube controller, and it essentially treats your GameCube controller like a Classic Controller.

More details are in the video. :)

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection


-Metal Gear (1995)
-Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (1999)
-Metal Gear Solid (2005)
-Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Substance Edition / HD) (2007 - 2009)
-Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (Subsistence Edition / HD) (1964)
-Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3 Exclusive) (2014)
-Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (1974)

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes / The Phantom Pain are sold separately but aren't PS3 exclusive.

The games here range from 1987 to 2010, sorted by release order. Guns of the Patriots is the finale to the franchise even though Revengeance takes place in 2018 but that title isn't canon.

It took me roughly ~2 weeks to get through all of them. On average, a Metal Gear Solid game takes ~8-12 hours to beat on your first ever run. The first 2 are a bit shorter.


The franchise is a must play. These games started, revolutionized, and essentially built the stealth franchise, with Ground Zeroes being the closest thing we have to a stealth simulator. Also Kojima wrote one of the greatest stories in gaming history.

u/FeetOfKatyPerry · 6 pointsr/PS3

/u/abs_boxing_tv .

i say ditch the dualshock 3 all-together.

it's hard to find official ones in decent condition now a days.

what i do is use a dualshock 4 (ps4 controller), with these little mods:

  1. mayflash magic ns adapter.

    this lets you use ps4/xb1/xb30/nintendo-switch-pro controllers on the ps3 with full functionality. (such as rumbles/vibration and accessing the PS menu button).

    you can still use the ps4 controller on ps3 without this adapter, but the 2 mentioned features will be MIA, along with random disconnects.

  2. replace the default thumbsticks with ps3-style Domed sticks. here's where i get mine:

    they ship to UK, but it might not be worth paying extra shipping just for a simple piece of product. you can probably find domed thumbsticks for cheaper on ebay. Just make sure they are DOMED (which is what ps3 controller sticks are), and compatible with dualshock 4.

    no matter what controller or mods you use, it will take some time to get used to, especially with a thumbstick-heavy game such as Fight Night Champion.

    but in the end, i ended up liking this setup better for FNC than the original ps3 controller.

Haven't you been able to import new official GC controllers via amazon for a while, or am I missing something?

Why replicate when you can use the actual controllers? Adapters might be pricey, but are your friend.

u/Slanderpanic · 6 pointsr/Steam

Protip: You can get one for $25 from Amazon. The only downside to the 360 controller, in my experience, is that the D-pad sucks. Newer models have a better D-pad, but they'll also run you about sixty Earthican buckazoids.

I also have one of these. Games don't tend to discover and auto-configure to it as well as they do with the 360 controller, but it's good, solid hardware. The buttons and analog sticks are precise and it's got a good hand-feel. Most importantly, the left analog stick and D-pad are on what's called a "Cyborg" module. That means you can pop it out and turn it around based on your preference. For instance, if you prefer a Playstation-style layout, you can have it. Hell, for 12 buckazoids and free shipping, it's worth trying.

This is the USB adapter most people recommend. Also if you want to share an eBay listing for a controller here I'd be happy to check it out and let you know if it's a good deal or not!

u/Apollo748 · 6 pointsr/Games

If you're using an emulated wiimote, you need nothing.

If you are using a real, physical wiimote, you will need a sensor bar and a bluetooth dongle.

Most of us recommend the Mayflash Dolphinbar as it combines both into one device.

Update that to the latest firmware to alleviate a burn out problem.

We also support official GC controller adapters (From nintendo) and can emulate those for the most accurate GC controller input (surprisingly enough, we get better analog stick input).

This is also effectively the same as the official GC adapter.

We also support pretty much any GC -> USB adapter as long as it gives some sort of controller interface, but for obvious reasons we try to recommend one or two.

T16000M FCS
and TFRP
both by Thrustmaster are a good combo and will only run you for about 200.
This guy did a pretty decent review on it.
Or you could do the TFRP pedals with the x-56 AND a trackIR included in the combo on amazon if you don't have one and it will run you just under 500.

The warthog stick and throttle and the TFRP pedals will put you right at 500 via amazon if you don't need trackir so there's that.

I need to get a life.

u/Archerofyail · 6 pointsr/Vive

This would be the equivalent of on-screen controls for mobile games. They suck to use because there's no physical feedback, other than maybe some haptics. People who already have setups probably won't have any interest in it, and there's already a really good, relatively inexpensive option for a HOTAS, which is the Thrustmaster FCS. It isn't as cheap as I thought, but it's still less than $200. The only thing you're missing is some pedals, but they're not strictly required. Not being able to see the controls isn't really an issue, because all the buttons and hats are within finger's (or thumb's) reach. It's just more a matter of memorizing the layout of your custom keybinds.

Also, I don't know how it would be implemented, but it would probably have a significant performance impact if it is possible.

u/Masark · 6 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Options I recommend:

  • The Thrustmaster T-flight HOTAS X - This is entry level HOTAS that goes for $40-50 USD. 12 buttons, an 8-way hat, twist stick, and rudder rocker. This tends to have the "a little short of controls" problem, as Elite has lots of stuff to bind, so you'll likely want to either use the keyboard for more buttons or set up a series of modifiers like this to fit everything on it. The HOTAS One and HOTAS 4 (for the Xbox and PS4, respectively, though both are also PC compatible) are slightly upgraded versions of this stick, with the same exterior, but improved internals tightening the deadzone and making them a bit more precise. They're usually more expensive than the X, but you might catch them on sale for cheaper occasionally. Note that this unit only uses 1 USB port, as the throttle and stick are connected to each other via a cable (about 20" long). This is something to keep in mind if you plan on mounting them to chair arms or something. I personally used this unit previously. It's a perfectly good setup, though I personally found the lack of buttons to be annoying after awhile. Note that the throttle has a detent at 50%, making it nicely suited to full range operation, with the detent separating forward and reverse.
  • The Thrustmaster Stick X. This unit is basically the above, but without the throttle and the buttons transferred to the stick base along with a throttle slider. Rings in at a little cheaper.
  • The Thrustmaster T16000M. This is a refreshed version of the classic T16000M, with minor exterior changes (reshaped hat, reshaped trigger, reshaped throttle, and tactile indicators on the base buttons). It's notable for being one of the rare ambidextrous sticks (you just swap out a couple parts to switch it) Unlike the X (which uses potentiometers), this unit uses contactless hall effect sensors, giving it very smooth motion with excellent precision. 16 buttons, an 8-way hat, twist stick and throttle slider. More buttons available than the X. The stick by itself rings in at about the same price as the HOTAS X.

    Moving up, there's the Thrustmaster T16000M FCS HOTAS. This is the above T16000M stick along with Thrustmaster's new TWCS throttle. Totalling them up, you get 19 buttons, two 8-way hats, two 4-way hats, a two-way switch, an analog stick, throttle slider, rudder rocker, and an analog dial, which is plenty of room for all the stuff you need (note that the throttle has no detent, so you'll probably want to run it forward only with a button assigned to reverse). This is what I personally use and I quite like it. Note that all the components of this set are available separately and can function independently (each needs its own USB port, so you might want to buy a hub with these). So you could buy the stick today and the throttle next month. Or buy the throttle and some other stick or buy two sticks, or whatever. There's also a set of pedals available if that's your jam.

    As for the money making, there are basically 3 options.

  • Core mining for void opals - See CMDR Madprophet's mining guide and/or Yekbot's visual guide to core mining for information on this.
  • Hotspot laser mining for painite or low temperature diamonds - See this video for information on that. Method is identical for both, only difference is what location you go to.
  • Robigo passenger missions - See this video for information on that.

>will I have to buy a numpad?

Buy a HOTAS. A decent one will give you more than enough buttons, and if you are going to play DCS a lot, it's really the only way to do it.

Otherwise, you'll need several layers of modifier binds.

u/jaseworthing · 6 pointsr/hotas

At the $150 price point, the thrust master FCS is your best bet.

u/Alexx51 · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

A lot of people like to wet themselves over the butterfox case. I got the RDS one for $25. I really like it. The main difference is that you get 2 hard shell cases for your games rather than keeping them loose under an elastic band. You can only hold 8 at a time though so I suppose that's the compromise.

u/Mudkip1 · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Get the Pro Controller for sure, as well as a Case to travel with. I bought this Case and have been pretty pleased with it.

There's also a larger version of this Case which fits the Switch Dock, Chargers, and additional Joycons. I kinda want this one but haven't bought it yet.

u/lasttycoon · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use an official Nintendo licensed case. Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case
Quality is fantastic and design is good imo. Sticking to licensed products can be nice.

u/rodfather · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I've been going overboard with accessories. Here's what I picked up so far:

Glass screen protector - Just in case.

128GB microSD card - I rarely buy physical games

Pro Controller - I love it. So comfortable.

PowerA Hybrid Case - I basically use this as a stand for my Switch when I'm on the go.

JDeal portable dock - It works. Make sure to follow the instructions. Works with my Nexus5x 5v 3A portable charger.

[Retractable HDMI cable] (

Hestia case - The Switch with the PowerA Hybrid Case, portable dock, portable USB-C charger, and retractable HDMI cable all fit in this.

USB 3.0 LAN Adapter - Faster speeds when on the official dock.

Gooseneck tablet holder - Ultimate comfort. Play while in bed.

Magic NS Wireless Adapter - I had originally bought this so I could use my PS4 controller. This was before I picked up the Pro Controller. It works. There was a recent firmware update that gives gyro support for PS4 controllers and it works well with Splatoon 2.

On the way:

Mumba case - For better comfort/protection while playing in handheld mode.

u/Vendetta4825 · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

There are no xbox 360 adapters for Wii, but there are Gamecube to USB adapters for PC. The best one IMO is the raphnet adapter. A bit more popular is the mayflash adapter, but I've heard those are not as accurate as raphnet. Mayflash also uses drivers which some people have issues with. If you need a controller the official white controllers are on sale at the moment.

u/moleman_dgaf · 5 pointsr/smashbros

Get an official controller ($30) and a Mayflash adapter ($13).

You'll have a much better quality controller that lasts longer, and you can use it on both PC and console.

u/goatlink · 5 pointsr/smashbros or wait for the new black ones to come out with the release of smash 4 for wii u

u/i_Dont_Even_Lift · 5 pointsr/smashbros

for OFFICIAL Nintendo ones Amazon is $35, Playasia is $50

It was $50 on Amazon just a few months ago, it's been dropping slowly, hopefully it will go down to $30

u/wicked_smidget · 5 pointsr/AmazonTopRated

If you want to use your game cartridges, then you need a console. There is no simple do it yourself way to play them without a snes or n64 console.

However, On the computer you can emulate games by using an emulator such as project64 and download roms (virtual rips of the cartridges) from a website such as emuparadise and emulate them on your computer. You can use a keyboard to play these games but the best way is to buy a n64 controller and get a n64 to usb adapter

u/chrisgond · 5 pointsr/emulation

Mayflash makes quality gear..

I highly recommend these guys as they maintain driver support.

u/Hybrid_Divide · 5 pointsr/retrogaming

If you have good N64 controllers, consider a USB Adapter.

If you want something basic, go with this Mayflash N64 USB Adapter:

I haven't tried the Mayflash adapter yet, but I gave one to a friend, and she seems happy with it.

If you want something really good, try this one. It even has Controller Pak and Rumble Pak Support!:

Raphnet makes a ton of really good adapters for lots of different consoles.

Happy Gaming!

u/friendofrobots · 5 pointsr/Games

I highly recommend picking up a wired xbox 360 controller:

I've saved a significant amount of money by buying games like AC2, Arkham Asylum, GTA IV, and Just Cause 2 on Steam sales instead of waiting for the console version to go on sale. It has definitely paid for itself in that respect.

u/Drakel101 · 5 pointsr/gaming will let you map the controller's buttons to whatever you want.

If you want to invest in a better controller then the Xbox 360 wired controller is the way to go. Most Games for Windows titles have built in support and it's also reasonably durable and comfortable.

u/epik · 5 pointsr/soccer

It's just plug n' play with windows. You gotta use a controller for this game.

FIFA 11 is not the same game on PC as it is on the consoles. It is the generation previous engine.

FIFA 12 will be exactly the same. Or so they say.

u/SyncOne · 5 pointsr/GameDeals

Just curious, why not buy the xbox 360 wired controller for $30 and save yourself a few bucks not having to buy the wireless receiver/charging kit? In my experience, I'm never more than 9 feet (length of the cord) away from the computer when gaming.

u/Kyrias · 5 pointsr/EliteDangerous

I'm using that and it works great.

I got that for my brother because I love him more than he loves me and he seems to like it. However they did some software/firmware upgrades on it that apparently limited customisability.

u/oviforconnsmythe · 5 pointsr/oculus

Getting a proper Hotas will make ED much much better even in non VR mode.

I've heard mixed things about saitek hotas'. While they look and feel really good, I hear they break pretty easily and saitek customer service is shitty AFAIK.

I'd recommend getting the thrustmaster t.16000m Hotas.

It was designed with elite dangerous in mind, I think they collaborated with Frontier.
This is what I have and it's fantastic for elite dangerous. They button layout on the throttle is really smart, although the lack of buttons on the stick itself is slightly annoying. In Canada it was cheaper than the x52 by $50 and I couldn't be happier with it.

u/Evolved_One · 5 pointsr/forhonor

I'm buying that $40 PS4 controller thing with paddles... getting decent reviews. I just want the paddles, really. No interest in the other features (that seem a bit like cheating) the thing does.

I'll edit a link in a few mins. Can't remember it's name atm.

Edit: strike pack I hear you can also buy these at gamestop.

u/Rando-namo · 5 pointsr/apexlegends

you are not

on a level

playing field

If you are using the base dualshock

First link comes with built in turbo. Second link has paddles so you never take your thumb off of the aim or the movement stick in addition to turbo and other things I don't suggest you use. Third link allows for more precise aiming on a thumbstick by increasing the throw of your stick.

I see lots of people complaining about MKB on a console but after watching a video of someone using it just walking around - it looks like a pain in the ass. I understand you will have much more precise aiming and recoil control, but turning looks like balls.

Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S. Dominator Controller Adapter with MODS & Paddles for PS4

u/Ninebreaker87 · 5 pointsr/FortNiteBR

Besides what OP said for remapping buttons, this is what I do.

I use one of these. Not too expensive ($40) adds 2 paddles to any regular ps4 controller. Been using it for over a year with no problems, feels great too. For Fortnite I've been using Combat Pro with right paddle set to X and left paddle for Square. Jumping around is easier this way imo.

u/xMd3w · 5 pointsr/Infinitewarfare

You can either switch to bumper jumper layout which is in your ingame options.

Or you can buy a controller from a company that puts buttons on the back. Personally i've used scuf, battlebeaver, and cinch and they dont last very long or the controller goes bad.

I've been using the ps4 strikepack now just for the jump paddles on the back. The great thing with this is you get everything from what the big companies offer for only $40. And if your controller goes bad you dont have to buy another $150-200 controller. You can just unhook it and put it on another $50 ps4 controller.

u/thoctor · 5 pointsr/nintendo

Gray also in stock at $299

u/hhhealthy · 5 pointsr/PS4

Having a long micro usb cable to keep a wireless controller charged is a good call (though you need to keep your system in standby if that is where you charge from)

However, i would recommend getting a second controller (some good couch co-op games this gen) and a dock like this:
and then just swap controllers when one dies.

There are a bunch of free-to-play games now, so you might have things to play before you start paying $60 for AAA games (I got into warframe for a while, but it is confusing to start). Also, a lot of cheaper ($10-20) indies too.

Of course i'd recommend paying the $30-$40/yr for PS+ (it should hit $30 on black friday, but you can find $40 every now and then. Normal price is $50/yr) you probably got a free one month card with your console, keep an eye out for the cheaper sales (this subreddit seems good for that) subscription stack. So if you can go until november, grab a couple for cheap then.

PS+ includes a bunch of free games every month, and further discounts on others. Of course the PS4 games are there (2 per month) but often times the vita or PS3 games might be on multiple systems and are "cross buy" or buy once play on any system. Also, go on a computer and "buy" all of the available games each month. It doesn't cost anything and sometimes a PS4 version of the game comes out later and is "free" if you had grabbed the other version when it was available. (happened recently with hotline miami.)

The camera accessory isn't necessary yet, don't worry about it.

A vita is a pretty great system on it's own, but it is really great paired with a PS4. You can remote play the system, leaving the TV open for other folks. This can work on the same network, but also from far away too (I've done it between NYC and Chicago but there was some noticeable delay, great for some games, not great for others (shooters)).

There are a bunch of great subreddits for various games (or trophy hunting, or finding PSN friends) so check those out.

Personally i'm just playing destiny now, but there is already a huge catalog of great games. Just don't listen to the nobs who complain about all the indies. They are some of my favorite games and they certainly aren't slowing down big games like Destiny, but you hear about it a lot on subs like this.

Power A Dullshock Controller Charging Station

I purchased this charger from amazon a couple months back, awesome purchase, fair price, oem look.

u/titans856 · 5 pointsr/PS4

This ps4 charger is so worth it. I tried to do the cable thing for a while but hated it. Since it plugs in the bottom port and not the top, it's not finicky to get in. Pop it down to charge and push down to spring the controller up.

u/King_Icewind · 5 pointsr/PS4

Don't. Get this instead:

I have this, and as I and all the other positive reviewers can attest to; it's great. Looks good, performs well, super affordable, and is the best rated.

u/Arcath_ · 5 pointsr/PS4

The Sony Gold headset is fucking amazing.

Edit: Here ya go!

u/Grevas13 · 5 pointsr/Overwatch

You would need an adapter that converts kbm input into controller input, like this one. Console Overwatch does not support kbm natively, so the adapter is necessary. Only way to not piss people off is to not tell them. It's typically viewed as cheating by the community. Blizzard, however, took a hands-off approach, leaving it up to Sony/MS.

Also, see a doctor about your thumb. Tendon issues (which I assume that is) are no joke, and you will regret it if you don't.

Mayflash GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U and PC USB, 4 Port

u/JayZesus · 5 pointsr/smashbros

For a controller I'd check at a game exchange near you. One that sells games from previous generations, the one near me has OG gamecube controllers for $25.

For the adapter I'd recommend the mayflash adapter, it's only $15 and works on Wii U too if you're gonna be using it for Smash 4.

Amfilm tempered glass Switch protector. Thats the one I have and the one most commonly recommended on here.

u/LunickDrago · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

So the best brand of tempered glass I found tends to be amFilms, i get both their phone and game console protectors all the time, its pretty convenient because it comes with 2, so your pretty safe for a while, heres the amazon link to the switch one

u/Veritasgear · 5 pointsr/Switch

My recommendations:

Lamicall stand. Extremely sturdy, folds up small, perfect for charging on the go.
I can't reccommend this thing enough. Hooked it onto the back of a seat last week while my flight was landing and had no problems with it shaking or sinking.

Also would recommend a good battery by anker with powerIQ, along with an anker charging cable.

One more thing I'd recommend is the butterfox carrying case. Not the prettiest, but by far the most protective and capacitive. I've been able to keep my anker battery, charging cable, extra joycons and stand in the spare pocket.

And don't forget protection:

amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

u/kaeyay · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Exactly the one I have. Here's the link.

u/GreninjaNerfer · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

On accessories - must haves definitely include (like everyone else said):

  • microSD card (64GB minimum imo, 128 is what I have because I have a fair amount of digital games)
  • A TEMPERED GLASS screen protector. This is easily the best screen protector on the market.
  • A travel case. I would recommend a nondescript black one; you don't want something that says "STEAL ME PLS"

    Less important things:

  • A stand (the one on the back of the Switch is pretty bad and if you use it a lot it will just snap off). The good ones are the HORI playstand with 3 angles and the official Nintendo charging stand.
  • Power banks/chargers: u/queuebitt made a whole website for this and regularly posts charger/power bank deals on r/NintendoSwitchDeals.
  • Extra controllers and Joy-Con grips: if you're going to play with multiple people you will need to get more controllers unless you want to play with the single Joy-Cons (which isn't a great experience). The Pro Controller you can find for around $60 now; in my opinion it's a really good investment.

    Before we get on to games, there's always the debate of physical vs digital. Indie games are often cheaper digitally because they have to partner with companies to release physical copies, but for most "big" titles physical or digital really depends on the game.

  • Physical: the big advantage is that you can sell it once you're done with the game. This is good for games with low replayability, like Mario Odyssey; however, it comes with less convenience because you have to swap out the cartridge every time to switch games.
  • Digital comes with convenience; you don't have to swap out cartridges and you don't have to deal with potential cartridge issues, but you're stuck with the game and digital games go on sale way less often that physical games. Digital is great for games you'll open and play for a few minutes or rounds, like Mario Kart.

    On to games. (these are the ones I have and can approve of)

  • Breath of the Wild is a must have if you're going to buy a Switch. It also has fantastic DLC that you'll probably want to buy along with the game.
  • Super Mario Odyssey is also really fun, but doesn't lend itself to multiple playthroughs very well. The first experience is amazing, but subsequent playthroughs don't have the same charm unless you're speedrunning.
  • Super Mario Party is a good experience for the first few times you play it but it suffers from a lack of content. I'd say get it when it goes on sale.
  • Mario Kart is a staple Nintendo game. Consider digital.
  • Smash Ultimate is also fantastic for both large groups and 2 people, but the solo modes aren't as great.
  • Overcooked 1 & 2 are so much fun, especially if you have 4 people. It quickly turns into a glorious mess and I love it.
  • Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is actually surprisingly fun for a game with maniacal rabbits. It also goes on sale ALL THE DAMN TIME so that's also a thing.
  • Splatoon 2 is a very creative, cute and charming game - but it's a team shooter game, so it's easier to get frustrated compared to other games. The DLC (Octo Expansion) is fantastic, though.
  • Hollow Knight, Celeste, and Shovel Knight are all amazing games (especially for the prices you get them at) but they're basically digital only. I'd say get him an eShop card and let him decide which games he wants.

    TL;DR microSD card, screen protector, case. eShop card and get Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart at least.

    Also: don't buy anything "Nintendo Switch" branded! They're literally the exact same things as the unbranded ones, just priced higher because of the logo.
u/mcantrell · 5 pointsr/KotakuInAction

Get a screen protector immediately, the dock scratches the screen. Until you have one, leave it docked as much as you can (the scratches come from being slid into the dock / taken out, not from standard use).

I got this one, it's great:

I also got this for it, but it won't fit in the dock anymore with it, which is fine for me as I don't use the dock:

I have a spare charger for the switch, for trips and playing Disgaea 5 while in bed, which is just a Google Pixel charger:

u/afevis · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This tempered glass screen protector is pretty solid if anyone needs a recommendation!

u/IAmAGayPenis · 5 pointsr/wiiu I have not purchased one yet myself but I've seen people post about them a few times on the subreddit and heard they work just fine!

u/midsummernightstoker · 5 pointsr/Games

There is an adapter that lets you use gamecube controllers with the Wii U. Still no BC for gamecube games though.

u/iRanch · 5 pointsr/smashbros

If the game allows for Wii Classic Controllers, you can use the GC to Classic adapter, otherwise everyone will use the new Pro Controller.

Some people have played Melee with the Wii U pro controller through homebrew and said it felt fine, so i'm not so worried.

u/EnduranceProtocol · 5 pointsr/nintendo

Unfortunately no. Wii games are played in the WiiU's Wii mode, which is basically Wii hardware. The Gamepad simply shuts.

You can use the Wii Classic Controller (Pro). There are 3rd party Wii to Gamecube controller adapters such as this one, if you're interested in that, although I can't vouch for any brand or if they're even reliable at all, as I've never experienced any.

u/John_Lawn · 5 pointsr/gaming

Well, there are these things. Assuming that SSB4 supports the classic controller from the wii (which I'm 90% sure they will), your problem is solved.

u/HeroOfLegend · 5 pointsr/smashbros

It works perfectly on the wii u. I ended up switching to the classic controller pro due to the lack of GC ports on the wii u. However you can get an adapter to use your GC remotes for it.

u/azrael6947 · 5 pointsr/gaming

Okay, I'll keep this brief.

You started out good. MGS 3 is the earliest game in the series story wise. On console Ground Zeroes is it's sequel, there is a few handheld titles in between MGS 3 and Ground Zeroes.

In short the story is and SPOILERS-SOMEWHAT in short, about two key groups who endevour to fulfil The Boss' final wish, to have a untied world. The Patriots seek to create this world through control, their enemies seek to create it through freedom.

The Patriots are an example of a shadow government, as they run the USA and control pretty much everything, add WMDs, nanomachines, AI and supersolders as plot points to the entire story, and it makes for one very enjoyable ride.

In their attempts to create the perfect world they embark on a complex cloning program to create the perfect soldier to fullfiil this goal. This is where Solid Snake comes from. Very few characters work directly for The Patriots, many are unknowing agents and the rest are usually unwilling, and are held hostage by some means.

The Metal Gear are a series of bipedial tanks, caipable of launching WMDs from any terrain or fullfilling some over goal such as recon or targeted strikes. In most games the Metal Gear serves as the final boss or close to being the final boss.

In buying Ground Zeroes now you wont miss a hell of a lot, Ocelot appears in it along with Snake. Most of the other characters are from the two handheld games in between MGS3 and MGS5:GZ, those two games are Peace Walker and Portable Ops. You can get every MGS game to date (aside from Portable Ops) in the Legacy Collection:

u/Musika13 · 5 pointsr/Games

I THINK this is it. I was watching a streamer talk about it.

>Wirelessly connect your PS4, PS3, Nintendo Switch Pro, Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, Wii U Pro, and Xbox One S Bluetooth Controllers to your Nintendo Switch, PS3 or PC system.

Not sure but this is PDP's Switch "case" (also on BotW version) and, by the looks of it, it's just a semi rigid pouch.

I'm probably getting this one once I can see it in person or a nice review; it looks like it will have some kind of foam (as shoulder buttons would tilt the switch and yet it seems to be in a horizontal position) and I think it's made by the same company as a pretty similar looking NES mini case.

u/UnfoldingTime · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

And added pro, IMO, is that you can choose between the standard black, Mario Kart or several different Zelda options for this case. I got the Mario Kart one with my bundle and it's a really nice case for the $20 price tag.

u/ke5pay · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

It is not dockable. The case adds about a third to the thickness however it does fit in the case I have and I believe it will fit most other cases. Having said that it takes up enough space that you cannot fit as much in the case, for mine I can get a cord in the pouch but only a small AC adapter. I am personally using this adapter in order to "dock" the unit and treating my joycons as non-removable as it is a bit of a bother to take the case off.

amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

That's the screen protector I got, it comes with 2, so if you don't apply it the way you want to or you shatter one you still have another. You cant even tell it's there on my switch, love them.

u/-ryche- · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I'd buy a screen protector. This is the one I grabbed off Amazon. amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

I'd look at getting a case to take it with you. RDS makes some nice ones with various designs.

u/brisnipe · 5 pointsr/Switch

This is the screen protector that I got. Looks great, feels great, works great. And it’s a super cheap investment to keep that screen looking amazing. I had the plastic film one on my switch ( it came with my hybrid cover ) it was ok for a little while but definitely got scuffed up quick and didn’t feel nearly as good as the glass ones.

u/KarlHungus01 · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Just buy the amFilm tempered glass screen protector, follow the instructions, and sleep well at night. It's the #1 accessory to the Switch I have been recommending to new owners without qualification.

u/deltasalmon · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This is the one I bought on Amazon. It came with stickers to pick up dust particles, a wet wipe, a dry wipe and stickers to attach to the screen to use the "hinge" method to apply the protector accurately.

u/Sheeplover1234 · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
  1. I personally think that the pro controller is neccesary for games like splatoon Arms (If on the go) and other titles down the road highley recommend you get one.


  3. get the binding of isaac and or any other indie games yous want.

    Btw can you respond if you saw this
u/chriskmee · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Its plastic, so its pretty low on the scratch resistance scale. Nintendo went plastic over glass probably becasue its less likely to break with kids dropping it, but the downside is that its much easier to scratch.

For only $9 you can get two top rated glass screen protectors. If you care about keeping the screen scratch free, its worth it. You can even do like I did and sell your spare one to a friend for $5 or so.

u/absolute-black · 5 pointsr/RivalsOfAether

am I being trolled

it's like the first thing on every page about them man

u/Sheikachu · 5 pointsr/SSBM

I have this one and I love it. If it has any input lag, I haven't noticed. It is PC native so it's easy to get it going, and you can use it for Smash 4 if you play that game too.

u/ericericerice · 5 pointsr/megalinks

you will need to download the Dolphin Emulator. it is compatible with most controllers, such as xbox, keyboard, etc. if you would like to use a gamecube controller, you would need to buy an adapter such as this one.

Here's a build I put together for you. This thing will destroy any game at ultra settings 1080p @ 60 FPS! You won't have to overclock if you don't want to, however it is pretty easy to do with Ryzen! You're going to want to set your RAM to run at the highest speed it possibly can without crashing though to get the best performance!

I went with raw performance over RGB and LEDs.

You have a TON of storage with this build. You'll have a 128 GB SSD for Windows which will make it boot and run incredibly fast. You can also store commonly used programs on here and a game or two that has long loading times. For all your other games and media, you have a 2 TB HDD!

Regarding your question about running the second screen, it should have negligible performance impact unless you plan on doing something intensive on it like rendering a video, playing another game, or something along those lines (aka browsing the internet on a separate screen won't impact you at all).

You can use a TV with this, however, TVs have different display properties when compared to a typical computer monitor. I'm not super knowledgeable on this topic, but I do know that TVs have lower refresh rates (around 25 Hz) that use different technology to blend frames together to make it appear like smooth transitions from frame to frame (if I'm wrong hopefully someone can correct me, although I'm pretty sure that's how it works). Also, TVs have much higher input lag. So playing competitive games on a TV will put you at a significant disadvantage. Long story short, you can totally game on your TV, it won't be AS enjoyable as on a normal monitor though.

With regards to you question about the controller, you can buy a USB adapter that you can use to connect your controller to. I personally have this one: and it works wonderfully! You can connect multiple controllers to it as well.

If you have any questions please let me know and I'll do my best to answer!

yes there is a wireless adapter.

Just bought the controller/wireless adapter/play and charge kit from bestbuy for instant gratification. The BT hasn't been reliable but that's probably an issue with my wifi/BT on MB as I never even connected the antenna until today to try out the BT. Got it to work fine then it stopped working, rinse repeat until I just went ahead and connected the wireless adapter and everything works fine with it. Maybe Ill mess with BT again by I got the wireless adapter so that I can use a headset connected to the conntroller while gaming from the couch.

u/jtskywalker · 5 pointsr/EliteDangerous

A joystick is ideal for this. I use this joystick and throttle combo (there are better ones out there, like the T1600M). A lot of people use dual joysticks or joystick and keyboard. There are a lot of controls so you need a lot of buttons, but if you're doing joystick and keyboard you should have plenty even if your stick is light on buttons.

u/dr_lorax · 5 pointsr/hoggit

Lol, that’s the million dollar question. I’m not sure what your budget is but I seem to think I’ve heard good things about the Thrustmaster T1600 stick and throttle T1600 Amazon. I hope that link works but it looks like the stick and throttle are $129 for the pair and that seems like a good deal to me but I got my setup a few years ago so not sure about the pricing and deals that they have now. My setup is also a Thrustmaster but it’s the Warthog Hotas which is a bit higher on the price scale but I’ve been happy with the brand. I hope this helps a bit.

u/Kuro_Neko00 · 5 pointsr/EliteDangerous

The Thrustmaster 16000M, either by itself, as a hotas, or as a hosas is regarded as a good entry level stick by many.

edit: best way to make credits in-game by far is mining, either surface mining for painite or core mining for void opals. Easily 100m/hr or more if you know what you're doing, and/or follow one of the many guides on youtube. I can't personally advise though as I've been actively avoiding it. I don't want to be rich so quick I have no idea what to do with it.

u/Clorix · 5 pointsr/flightsim

Thrustmaster T16000M FCS Joystick if you're REALLY pressed for space. Otherwise, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS Controller, which includes the HOTAS half of the setup. I think it's easily the best setup for the money.

edit: fixed the first link.

u/bug_eyed_earl · 5 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Sounds like the TM T-16000m is a better overall hotas for the same price.

u/qazaqwert · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

If you live in north america or europe there are definitely some good quality sub $50 mechanical keyboards. Id look at some of redragon's stuff
Yeah you arent gonna get rgb or name-brand switches but its still mechanical and really good for the price.

u/SavagePigeon69 · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

The Redragon K552 is a great value for it's price and it is backlit.

u/salajander · 4 pointsr/flying

Unless you're willing to spend a ton of $$ on a high-end yoke, you'll just be disappointed. You'll be happier with something like a Thrustmaster T 16000M. (

Most of the $100-$200 yokes just aren't that good, and you'll end up being frustrated with it. And you won't have any issues transferring stick/hotas in a sim to a yoke in plane.

u/SwedishWaffle · 4 pointsr/hoggit

Head tracking is an advantage, but not a must (I do fine without it). Get yourself an entry level HOTAS such as the thrustmaster t.16000m fcs.

This will give you more than enough money for an entry level module. I'd recommend the non-clicky-cockpit Flaming Cliffs 3 pack and/or a simple clicky-pit plane like the F-5E Tiger II

u/dallasz09 · 4 pointsr/EliteDangerous

i bought the thrustmaster t16000m for my first hotas. got hundreds of hours on it and its not bad for an entry level for the price.

Dual T16000M seem to be really popular on this subreddit. Its getting a Elite Dangerous Tie in update next month. The stick is the same but comes with a brand new throttle that has an anlaog hat.

I've never seen anyone use a 6 DOF mouse before.

u/pooter03 · 4 pointsr/oculus

Check out VTOL VR. It is completely playable with only the Touch controllers.

That being said, DCS is tons of fun in VR. I use a Thrustmaster T16000M stick and throttle which works great with most of the modules.

u/chubchubs83 · 4 pointsr/Vive

This HOTAS is great for a budget but you may run out of programmable buttons.

This is the HOTAS I use for Elite, I personally think it is the "best bang for your buck". The HOTAS also comes with a twists stick so you don't need pedals.

u/Bulletwithbatwings · 4 pointsr/hotas

So many people have defective Saitek products. It is a purchase you will regret, especially since support no longer exists. If you can afford it, the best "cheap" hotas it the Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS Controller

u/ChicksDigNerds · 4 pointsr/Vive

Not a fix for not being able to switch the in game model to a lefty, but Thrustmaster makes a hotas setup that has a fully ambidextrous flight stick, comes with all the parts to convert it to left handed mode.

Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS Controller

u/Super206 · 4 pointsr/hoggit

It's a cheap(er) HOTAS, it's biggest upside is a lot of inputs, if you're looking for something that will guarantee to last a long time I wouldn't look at a recent Saitek/Madcatz as a first choice. IMO the throttle is a much nicer unit than the stick and worth hanging on to. The stick layout is okay, my only gripe is the shape of the hats, and unless you have large hands it's a stretch from the base resting position to the top switches, if that base was a half-inch or so higher it would be a lot better.

I have one, and I really like it, I've had it for since mid 2014 and I haven't experienced any failures. I guess I'm lucky, but you get what you pay for for things like this. In fairness, Hotasessesse's across the board have much higher failure rates than any other peripheral input device such as mice and simple sticks like a Logitech Attack-3/5. CH and TM products aren't flawless, but they are better built and more consistent, worth spending the money on if you have it.

However, with the changeover in the parent company (MC -> Logitech) I would keep an eye on them. If you need something right-the-f***-now without spending much, a Thrustmaster T1600M FCS kit just came out as TM's answer to a proper budget hotas, and the reviews are good so far. Just keep in mind that it's built to fit a low cost so don't expect a lot of metal.

u/Connor53 · 4 pointsr/smashbros

I believe you will want to get one of these.

u/Hudbus · 4 pointsr/nintendo

Take a look at this.

That's really the only way to get official GC controllers to work with all Wii U titles that support the Classic Controller.

The overhyped adapter only works with Smash Bros. for some (possibly marketing related) reason.

u/bpear · 4 pointsr/wiiu

If you don't want to use homebrew like someone else suggested (HID to VPAD) . Homebrew is super simple to setup btw, just put some files on your sd card and launch a web page on the wii u browser.


You could get this adapter it plugs into a wii remote and the wii u reads it as a classic controller. I don't know why it has such poor reviews. I have one and it works perfectly fine.

u/schmorgyborgy · 4 pointsr/wiiu

Because not everybody has a Game Cube and Wii, and it is sometimes easier to just have everything on one console. Also, you can use your game cube controller with this

u/Tiger_Millionaire · 4 pointsr/Games

It works great! You plug it into a Wiimote and then plug a cube controller into it and you're golden. The only downside is you only get one port but it's whatever.

u/ArmyDude956 · 4 pointsr/smashbros

There are actually PC ports of both MGS1 and MGS2, but they are pretty dang old.



However, here's how I recommend doing it.

Get The Twin Snakes for Gamecube. It's a remake of the first one with totally redone cutscenes, redone voice acting, and different music. The music is nowhere near the level of the first one, it just doesn't sound right. But other than the music, I think it's the best version.

Then get the HD collection, if you have a 360 or PS3. This includes HD remakes of MGS2, MGS3, and MGS Peace Walker. Peace Walker was a PSP exclusive before and it's 100x better on console.

I also recommend getting MGS3 on 3DS. It's the best version in my opinion. Use the Circle Pad Pro, though.

You can get MGS4 on PS3 or on PS4 with Sony's PSNow thing, but that's only a rental.

MGS5 Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain are both coming out on PC.

Or you can just get the Legacy collection which has literally every Metal Gear game to 2012, and it includes the HD editions. It doesn't have The Twin Snakes though.

u/kautau · 4 pointsr/Bossfight

There’s also a large remaster set for ps3 that has a ton of the games (and a voucher for digital versions of some others)

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection

u/halahala1986 · 4 pointsr/truegaming

I believe OP only has the MGS HD collection so he only has MGS 2, 3 and Peace Walker. OP if you're reading this and have a PS3 i highly recommend the MGS legacy Collection.

It has all the games you could possibly need, including the MSX games but they're not required for a playthrough, but just as UsoInSpace said, best play it in release order: 1->2->3->4 and then peace walker since it's the latest one.

u/NFX45 · 4 pointsr/metalgear

I think it just sells quickly because it is a good deal for six games;

MGS1 + VR Missions
and a nice art book.

I picked up mine the first day bundled with a free copy of Rising Revengence, but I wasn't anticipating it selling out so quickly.

<br />

Amazon has it right now for $54

u/EffrumScufflegrit · 4 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Also about the same price at Amazon with the artbook if you don't mind spending an extra dollar and 90 cents.

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection by Konami

u/runtheplacered · 4 pointsr/Games

$43 on Amazon. Even cheaper on the marketplace. $50 at Gamestop. Not doubting you, but I don't think I've ever seen it go for $100. Maybe they started producing more copies after they noticed a demand, kind like like Xenoblade Chronicles? I don't know.

u/11fingerfreak · 4 pointsr/thedivision

No I actually know how to use it just fine. I’ve got scripts, access to a PC, had no issues with the coding and flashing. No technical issues. But it’s overkill. Most of what it can do better players already do anyway. And it feels like they do it better than the device does. There’s a lot you can script but why do any of that when you can just practice and achieve similar results? Then there’s input lag. I’ve seen videos of players running it with no problems. Me? I consistently had input lag on every game. When it wasn’t lagging it was fine, but it was 50/50 and that’s annoying enough to leave it shelved. Maybe I have too much EM interference but I’m not going to create a Faraday cage just to play a video game. If the key to doing a good part of what I’d want it for is just developing muscle memory and it’s laggy then that’s not enough to make me fall in love with it.

I also have the programmable Strike Pack. I like that device quite a bit although it lacks the flexibility of the CM. It also has less input lag than a CM, which is what made me feel the CM was clunky. What I don’t like is its poor fit around my controller. If it fit better I’d use it more often. Maybe it works better with older PS4 DS4s? But it’s interesting enough to tempt me to buy a Scuf or one of the other pro kits

If you’re looking for peripherals that will really give you an edge on console you’re better served by a Xim, a mechanical keyboard, a gaming mouse, and a large surface to use the mouse with. It won’t give you snap shotting or super quick zoom and shoot but it makes every shot more precise. That alone will put you ahead of even the best controller jockeys. The trade off is you need a desk or coffee table setup appropriately.


u/Entropius · 4 pointsr/titanfall

Also, an alternative to Evolved or Bumper Jumper that still allows you to maximize the movement system (like air strafing), is to get programable paddles on the bottom of your controller which enable you to use any controller setup you want.

Basically, maximizing the movement system requires you to be able to keep your thumbs on the control sticks without taking them off to jump or crouch/slide. Evolved, Bumper Jumper or controllers with paddles all permit that.

Some people buy expensive elite controllers but I went with this. It requires the controller be wired though, and you have to hold the PS4 button and activate it before starting up the game. But it was worth it for me since I can put jump on my left paddle and melee on my right panel (slide is my R3).

Edit: Also, wall running doesn't require you to look parallel to the wall. You can wall run and look perpendicular to it, strafing along the wall. You can also quickly wall jump up a corner. Sometimes I actually jump backwards into a corner and climb to the ceiling of a room while facing the center. Handy for defending a large room, people don't expect you to be hiding in the top corners.

u/ldminh94 · 4 pointsr/hardwareswap

Isn't the keyboard $39 on Amazon ?

u/alose · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

At that price range, you are really better to buy new, as most any decent keyboard will be more than $50 used, and I would not trust any budget keyboard that was on the used market. And at $50, forget about RGB.

We highly recommend dropping the number pad and using a TKL or smaller keyboard. You are literally hurting yourself by using a fullsize if you are a right handed mouse user. Either you are putting undo strain on your shoulder by reaching far out to the right, or undo strain on your wrist my shifting your typing area to the left.

If you still want a fullsize in spite of our recommendations, then an Eagletec is probably the best option.

A Redragon, Tomoko, or Magicforce are probably the best in your price range. I would recommend the Magicforce over the others.

You can get one with chinese switches on amazon for REALLY cheap

it's not the best, but the quality is still 1000000X better than a regular keyboard

u/CEtro569 · 4 pointsr/SSBM

This post belongs in the DDT.

Almost any Gamecube controller will do you fine. The older ones (platinum, indego, etc.) are renowned for being the "best" but at low to high level play it won't really matter. Newer ones will take a while to break in the sticks as they'll be a little stiffer and will have a lot more rebound, but practicing enough should iron out that pretty quick (moonwalks are recommended). The newer ones have different triggers though, and they tend to get stuck every now and then. If you're willing to, sanding down and lubing them a little will make them fantastic controllers for competitive play. This is the one I use and I hear many people say it's one of the best, it's a lot more expensive then the Smash edition ones but they come with a longer cord, I'd still probably recommend the Smash one's though.

u/spinjump · 4 pointsr/smashbros

While you can play melee online with Dolphin, it can be a little laggy unless you are playing someone really close to you geographically. Smash is a game where 1 frame (1/60th of a second) can make all the difference in what happens. If you plan on playing the game competitively, then playing on a console with a CRT is the only way to go. (HDTVs have input lag, often greater than 1/60th of a second and can therefore cause you to get used to bad timings)

Also, you'll definitely want a 1st party gamecube controller, and amazon has brand new white ones for pretty cheap (relatively speaking) here. Unfortunately, colors other than white have been out of production for a long time, so finding one in good condition is a bit harder/more expensive.

u/sboles66 · 4 pointsr/smashbros

For single player games, consider picking up a wired Xbox 360 controller to play with. That way you get the control scheme that your prefer as well as the bonus of a higher resolution/better graphics/mods/etc. I wouldn't recommend it for multiplayer though--for obvious reasons.

u/mynfpacc · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

congratz dude!

I highly recommend a tempered glass screen protector as well! Someone already linked the screen protector from amFilm,it's the one I use as well and it's really great!

There have been some reports that people got their screens scratched by simply getting the Switch out of its dock. So having a screen protector should be your number one priority.

Honestly, you don't need anything else, at least not right now.

If you do feel like you'll often take the switch with you when you head out then by all means get a travel case as well. Hold off on getting any extra joycon or pro controller. Both aren't exactly cheap, I'd hold off on them unless you really need them.

And just for your interest, the switch is not region locked.

Which means, if you want to buy anything from the nintendo e-shop then check out this site beforehand.

This site compares all the prices for a title through all the different e-shops.

You can simply go on the nintendo website and change your country in the websites settings. Then you have to re-log into your nintendo account on your switch and then you can proceed to directly buy the game through the other nations e-shop.

I've gotten several games for super cheap that way.

u/Lazarus1209 · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Really it's dealer's choice. IT would more depend on what kind of protection you're looking for. If you're worried about it getting tossed around, then either a soft or hard case would work. If you're more specifically worried about it getting crushed (sat on) or suffer through high impact treatment (thrown, smashed, etc.) then I would recommend a hard case as the design is more appropriate for those situations.

The one you have is one that I would use if I was simply transporting the system with me. It works for portability and to ensure it doesn't get scratched or suffer from light fall damage. The harder shell ones would be better if it's always going to be with you, and if it's going to be in a bag or back pack that is thrown around.

What I would really recommend in either event is a tempered glass protector like this. That will ensure you don't get scratches if you drop it or from the dock itself (there have been some reports of scratches from being docked/un-docked) and you can hardly tell it's there. Good luck to you, either way!

u/-MarisaTheCube- · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Congrats on getting a Switch! I'd just make sure you get a screen protector ASAP as the plastic screen is highly prone to scratches. I recommend the amFilm tempered glass protector. Other than that, enjoy yourself.

u/UniquePebble · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/CeaselessIntoThePast · 4 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating
u/AetherMcLoud · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Get a glass screen protector. They cost like 5-10 bucks and you'll never have a single scratch on your switch display.

This is the one I use, works perfectly with touchscreen:

u/No_Hands_55 · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

this would probably be the best bet

but i am working on some designs for a table top stand and a "backpack" for handheld mode to hold some large battery packs

u/c-span_celebrity · 4 pointsr/editors

I'm using the utech venus I bought on a whim as a cheap knock off Logitech G600.

Love it! But when I replace it I'll spend the extra for Logitech. Utech doesn't have full support on OSX so if you want to update any of your short cut buttons you have to use a PC. Once updated they transfer... but you know the whole command vs control doing different things in your software on the different operating systems. You can get a work-around for a bunch but not all.

The 12 buttons on the side are over kill. I'd prefer 6 bigger ones that'd I'd be more accurate with, but it's a pretty minor complaint for this mouse saving me literally 30+ mins a day of repetitive keystrokes... oh god zooming in and out of the timeline in Media Composer is just a thumb click

u/Sweetwill62 · 4 pointsr/techsupportgore

I took a chance on this $30 dollar mouse and I will have to say it is completely worth 30 dollars. I've used and abused it for close to 2 years now and the only actual complaint I have for it is the fact that it only has one mouse button near the left click instead of the two that the naga has. I got used to it but really for $30 I really can't complain a whole lot.

u/CrowSpine · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You know, I actually bought this same exact keyboard about 2 months ago and I love it. It's the first mechanical keyboard that I've bought and although I didn't look closely enough at it on Amazon and I bought one without a number pad, I still don't regret it. I've been using this mouse for about two years too and their stuff, although cheap compared to other brands, actually seems alright.

u/VictorMorson · 4 pointsr/OutreachHPG


It's not a major mouse brand, which might instantly turn off a lot of people. However, it's highly programmable, has all of the bells and whistles of an $80 mouse, feels incredibly durable and is not made from flimsy stuff, and the software is utterly amazingly easy to key bind anything you'd like to any button on the mouse, including customizing the DPI. [The DPI buttons can even be re-assigned, with no restrictions.] It's very simple and lightweight, too; it's very good at what it does without any bloat.

The light color change sounds like a gimmick but since you can assign a different color and glow pattern to each profile (which takes about 2 seconds to swap), it helps you easily ID what is loaded onto the mouse.

The drivers are flawless and the button layout is very good; after day 2 with the mouse, I never hit the side buttons on accident thanks to their design.

Long story short, I've had high end expensive mice for many, many years and this is easily the best mouse I've owned in a while. Very sturdy, reliable, and considerably more customizable than the more well known multi-button mice. With 5 customizable DPI levels, it's perfect for MechWarrior, as well.

And all this for the price of a cheap "new computer" freebie-quality mouse. I really recommend this thing. If you're willing to consider a smaller hardware manufacturer, you'll way more than get your money's worth.. doubly so since you get all this for under forty bucks.

ED: The side buttons work very well for MW:O, from strikes to UAVs to coolant, it's nice to have it all on the same location.

ED2: Because of the above I've taken to not customizing games I play all the time, but customizing the mouse to the game. That was doubly nice in Star Citizen since it lacks key binds right now.

u/TheRealEpoch · 4 pointsr/SSBM

Go onto smash ladder and play some friendlies! A lot of people there are nice (but don't be surprised if you encounter some salty people).

Next step is to get this and a GC controller (either from eBay or GameStop, just not 3rd party always official)

u/master0fdisaster1 · 4 pointsr/DolphinEmulator

Either the offical GamecubeContoller adapter for WiiU by Nintendo


the Gamecube controller adapter for Wii U & PC by MayFlash.

Both have native support with dolphin and function pretty much identical.

Mayflashs has a pc mode where you can use the gamecube controller as a generic input device. So if you plan on using your gamecube controller for anything else besides dolphin/smash than you should get that one.

If you plan on using gamecube controllers in dolphin those two adapters are the only ones you should consider. Buttons are mapped automatically by dolphin(with these two adapters) so things like deadzones are exactly identical to the console. The native support also has the nice benefit of having no additional input lag.

u/JohnsBonesJones · 4 pointsr/RivalsOfAether

I assume you're talking about a Gamecube controller, in which case this is what you're looking for.

u/pnpbios · 4 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I would have tried to find a way to reuse the original ports.

u/Kered13 · 4 pointsr/starcraft

It's originally a Gamecube game obviously, and can be played on Wii as well, but these days most people play on PC netplay. The netplay ladder for both Melee and PM. It has guides to get everything set up, but here is the guide you will want for Melee. You will need to find an NTSC v1.02 Melee ISO, I'm sure you can figure out how to do that ;)

To start off with you can use any PC controller or even a keyboard (it sounds crazy but some people have done it successfully). If you get more serious or you want to play in offline tournaments you will need a Gamecube controller and adapter. Adapters are pretty cheap, just make sure it's a WiiU compatible adapter like this one, Dolphin can detect it in WiiU mode and this will work best. New GC controllers are unfortunately much more expensive, and probably will be until the next Smash game comes out and they make a new batch. This is probably the biggest barrier to entry. You can find lightly used ones for more reasonable prices. It is also possible to repair more damaged controllers (there are guides for this and people who make a business out of it). Third party controllers are generally pretty trash, I would avoid those.

As for actually playing, this guide is the classic for advanced techniques, though it's a lot to take in at once. There are a ton of other guides on Youtube as well if you feel like you need a different explanation or just want something more modern.

u/zqwefty · 4 pointsr/SSBM

You should get the mayflash one; it supports direct input and can be more easily used outside of dolphin.

u/_wytOut · 4 pointsr/smashbros

You don't have to order Mayflash from China. I just ordered [this one]( and it's supposed to be here Monday. Guess I'll report back to confirm.

edit: Confirmed. Ordered on Thursday with Prime 2-day shipping. Arrived Monday and works perfectly. <3

u/BAGELSPANK · 4 pointsr/playark

You know, you could just pick up a wireless adapter for your PC so you can use your Xbox controller wirelessly, hook up your PC to your TV so you can play it on the big screen and just play it from bed on PC with your controller. It has great controller support on PC -I recently set up one of my ps4 controllers with it and it works really well.

u/Fumblerful- · 4 pointsr/CrusaderKings


I present the Crusader. $720 but the cost is reduce able.

It seems expensive but you can cut the cost in a few ways.

First, this build is more powerful than your xbox. If you want to use a controller you just need to get an xbox one controller receiver for computer.

Second cost cutter. If you have any parts around your house, let me know. I can work those into the current game.

Third, you can replace the windows OS with a linux build. Linux is a free operating system that just happens to work with ck2. It does not work with much else.

Fourth, the graphics card is optional if you really only want to do ck2 and other simple games on this machine. However, keeping this card will ensure you can play many games on this and they will look better than on the xbone.

If you decide to build this, check out /r/buildapc and /r/pcmasterrace.

u/Boorsma · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You need bluetooth for the new controllers (One S onward afaik) or you need a Wireless Adapter for Windows.

u/lazy_eye_of_sauron · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

My advice, get a tempered glass screen protector. Sure, the screen is plastic and isn't going to shatter, but with a console that you can reasonably plan to be using for 3-5 years you want to make sure that nothing is going to scratch that screen, and you might as well not skimp on protection when it's only about 10 bucks.

You should also get a case. I'm using the hybrid case that you can buy from nintendo, but I honestly cant recommend it, while it protects my switch in transit, and acts as a better kickstand, it is uncomfortable to play with in handheld mode, and is annoying to take off the switch to dock it. Also while you can charge the switch while it is inside the case, it is cumbersome. Most of the zippered pouch cases you see will do the job, bonus points if it is hardshell.

The kickstand is okay at best. It can be flimsy at times, and doesnt provide for multiple viewing angles. I recommend the hori stand, because you can play and charge (something you cant do with the default kickstand) and have multiple viewing angles.

Avoid cheepass(tm) charge cables. USB-C can be picky, and not all type-c cables are made equally. Just because it fits, doesn't mean that it is up to the same standard as what's in your box. Your best bet is to check reviews on these before you buy. If you just get the cheapest thing, you might not charge as fast as you should, or worse you can damage your switch.

As for games, You already got BotW and MK8D. If you need more to play, give Shovel Knight a try, as well as Binding of Isaac and Graceful Explosion Machine. All the Neo Geo games are great. Snipperclips is great if you have friends to play it with, and if you have friends AND alcohol, 1,2 switch can be entertaining for a few hours.

u/TheIrateSPider · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You could use this thing

u/Onyxthegreat · 4 pointsr/Splatoon_2

It's the Hori Compact Play Stand. I have it too, it's very useful.

u/SirDinkus · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

In the gallery I make sure it's clear you need either a skin or hard case on your Switch to do this (unless you don't care about sticking something directly to your system). But you're right, I did forget that you can't dock it with a steelie on. I haven't docked my switch once since I got it, and I just recently ordered a better docking solution. Check this out if you're interested. But to answer your question, the steelie mount is a little over a inch squared. Basically a little larger than a marble. Even compared to the official Compact Playstand the Steelie is tiny.

u/Morrow28 · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I take my switch with me a lot, so my favorite accessory is my backpack. I have one of these:

It has specific pouches for everything. Multiple Joycon Controllers, your pro controller, your switch itself, your power cord and hdmi cord, your dock, your headphones, little zipper pouches for your games. Instead of putting my switch in the switch pocket, I leave it in my hard case, and I put a portible stand in the switch pocket.

Other accessories I enjoy:

-Pro controller for more comfort in docked mode, or for better control in fortnite and other multiplayer shooters.

-Portible stand for better tabletop play. The switch has a kickstand, but it can start to lose support and stop working, but it also is low to the table, only has 1 angle, and you can't charge your system while using the kickstand. I have this one:

-USB to usb-c converter. This is only if you have a wired controller like me. I like to play fortnite from time to time on my break, and I use my controller. But since it's wired, I bought the converter and I can plug it into my switch while I'm away from my dock. But it you get him wireless this won't be necessary.

-Screen protector. For obvious reasons 😁. Preferably a tempered glass one, not plastic.

-Car charger

-Carrying case. I prefer the medium thickness. Usually they're themed, I have a blue Zelda one. Hard shell is better, but usually not themed and is plain. I don't like soft cases at all.

Accessories I don't have but thought about buying:

-Dock Sock. Some people have had their system scratched by the dock, or have had someone else scratch it while docking it. The dock has hard plastic inside of it for some reason, and it can come into contact with the switch and scratch it if your not careful. The dock sock just adds a layer of cloth between the hard plastic and your screen. Not necessary, but can help, and you can find a ton of cool designs on etsy and other sites.

-Dock light. Can't be used with dock sock. Just makes the outside of your dock look cool.

-Better grip for handheld mode. A lot of people like them, I just didn't get one because it doesn't fit in my case and I'm too lazy to attach and separate them every time.

-Switch decals. Make your switch look cooler. I'd only buy from Nintendo as some 3rd party ones werent made correctly and fried people's systems.

-Replacement faceplates. Like decals, but it's completely new plastic casing. Some are awesome, like the ond school nes look or Gameboy crystal purple. They can be a pain to install though, and may void warranty (I don't know for sure, just a guess).

Games I like:


-Zelda Breath of the Wild
-Stardew Valley (Now has multiplayer but I think online only, not split screen, could be wrong though)
-Hollow Knight

Solo I haven't bought but heard are good:

-Dark Souls
-Binding of Issac

Solo or Split Screen Co-op:

-Snipper Clips
-Mario (Really any of them, though odyssey is less fun for player 2 as you just play as the hat)
-Pokemon Let's Go

Solo or SS Co-op I don't have but heard are good:

-Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time
-Splatoon 2
-Boxboy Boxgirl

I'd also suggest you get him Nintendo online. It's free for a year if you have Amazon prime, or $20 a year if you don't. You can't play online multiplayer without it. You also get to download an app on your switch that has a bunch of old school games on it like super Mario, super Mario 2, super Mario 3, Dr. Mario, legend of link, legend of zelda, and a bunch of others. All of them are free as long as you have Nintendo online, and they add new games every month I think.

Long read, but hopefully it helps! Your giving him a gift he can enjoy for a long time, and there is so much to play on this system it's crazy. There are a ton of cheap indy games as well. So you could always just get him a Nintendo Eshop card and let him buy whatever looks good to him if you want. Tons of stuff $20 and lower, and there is always a ton on sale.

u/Npakaderm · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The kickstand is nearly useless but there's a very inexpensive accessory that addresses the issue you mentioned and gives you some more flexibility to get the switch up at a better angle for your neck/back anyway. I am sure you're aware of this, and this doesn't invalidate your criticism but I think the kickstand was likely kind of an afterthought and it's nice to have in a pinch. Amazon link to item

Nintendo is exceptionally good at getting people to buy extras for their consoles, whether first party or third party. I have a closet full of random plastic holders for Wii controllers that were arguably completely unnecessary but for some reason I thought playing Wii Sports with a fake tennis racket was more fun. Not to mention the earlier gameboys, I had so much shit strapped to my OG gameboy that Nintendo arguably could have built into the device (light, better speakers, battery packs, etc) too. This is how Nintendo has always done it.

Edit: forgot to link to the accessory I bought to address the kickstand issue. Added.

Mayflash Magic-NS Wireless Controller Adapter for Nintendo Switch PC NEOGEO mini

Can you turn on the console wirelessly?

u/SegoliaFlak · 4 pointsr/MonsterHunter

I got one of these the other day and it's fantastic, a couple of things I've seen though:

  • It only lets you connect one controller at a time, you'll need multiple adapters for multiple controllers

  • Even though it lets you connect a joycon to other things, I've seen some people saying it's only a singular joycon (as held sideways)

  • For dualshock 4, I don't think there's a way to remap buttons on switch. This can be a bit jarring as it makes circle the confirmation button (as opposed to 'X' which it's normally mapped to)

    Apparently the Magic-NS solves some of these issues if you're looking for a similar alternative
u/ticktak10 · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Yeah I felt that too when I tried the demo on the switch. I think it is because of the offset analog sticks when compared to the playstation's controller with the analog sticks on the same axis. I've seen a usb dongle that can allow the switch to accept any bluetooth controller so you could play with a ps3 or ps4 controller. These are two I've looked at since the regular joycons keep cramping my hands.



u/1338h4x · 4 pointsr/Kappa

I use my old PS4 Hori RAP4 with a Magic-NS adapter. Pretty nice for how cheap it is, as an added bonus I can also use my old Wii U Pro Controller for platformers and stuff where I want a good old fashioned d-pad instead of that joycon shit.

u/notquark · 4 pointsr/FortniteSwitch

So, in anticipation of this, I bought a bunch of connectors.

Surprisingly, the magic-ns worked out the box. Still have to work on mapping, but paddles and buttons work (plugged in only so far) really well.

  1. Glass Screen protector. You can get a set of 2 for about $8 on Amazon. This is the one I got and it's fine:

  2. Lots of different cases and opinions on them. Personally I use a Butterfox:

    I like it a lot. If you want to carry the dock and what not there are other options. Personally I use that and another larger case to carry the dock, charger, shell for the Joy-Cons and two Joy-Con handle cases

    Beyond that it's all personal preference. If you go handheld all the time you might want to look at the Skull & Co:
    I don't personally have it but I have only heard good things by those that have it.
u/bigylittle · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
  • Screen Protector. I suggest a tempered glass screen protector
  • SD Card. Dpending on how committed you are to digital vs. physical, a 64gb or 128gb should hold you over. Wait for them to go on sale, they go on sale pretty often.
  • Carrying case. I recommend the ButterFox carrying cases, they come in different sizes so pick one that suits you.
  • A stand. By stand I mean something that will hold your Switch and provide access to the USB port for charging. Some recommend the Hori play stand, for me that's a bit too bulky and went with one meant for cellphones, works wonders.
  • Portable battery pack, look for ones with at least 2.1A output to sustain gameplay when charging.
  • Pro controller, it's essential on most games, literally night and day from the joy cons. I suggest getting the Xenoblade version because it has an updated D-Pad that the original has.
  • Another dock, theres a lot of controversy here. There are 3rd party options out there they have been noted as dangerous to your Switch and may brick it and render it useless. From my experience, I've had great success with the Nyko dock and the Best Buy Insignia dock, use these at your own risk. You could play it safe and buy another official Nintendo dock. it's not as cheap however.

    Links for all the items I got for your reference:
    Screen Protector
    Memory Card
    Battery Pack
    Pro Controller

u/cavedweller333 · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

For screen protectors, I highly recommend amFilm it is currently on sale for $9, normally about 30, comes in a pack of two.

It is fairly high quality.

I wouldn't get switch brand micro sd cards as they are much more expensive, the minimum I would get is 64 Gb.


I would get stardew valley for your daughter and maybe shovel knight for your son, I don't know if these have physical options or are just digital.

Mario kart 8 deluxe might also be good but it would be best to get two copies.

Most games require multiple copies for multiplayer on multiple systems, but the switch has local connection built in so you can play without an internet connection.

u/camkeys · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I'm not sure what their anti glare one does but the normal amazon oneis the one I have and it is perfect

u/IwataFan · 3 pointsr/nintendo

With screen protectors you really want to go with tempered glass. Starter kits are a nice deal, but you do get what you pay for when it comes to screen protectors; such is life.

For a screen protector, I along with the rest of Reddit it seems have settled upon this screen protector as being the absolute best. I even had Best Buy Geek Squad install it to virtually guarantee proper installation, and it looks absolutely fantastic. I had the chance to play for a few weeks without it and personally think it actually makes the screen look better.

For a case I would go the RDS Industries route and get either this or even this larger case that can fit all the related Switch accessories.

u/OedipusR3x · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The RDS Industries case seems to be a favorite. Comes with little plastic cases that hold the games and micro SD cards. Also more form fitting for the switch than most cases.

u/XachAttach · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I love this one.

Very small and compact so either good or bad depending on what you want. This cannot hold the dock, AC adapter, etc...but holds the console+joycons perfectly with room for eight cartridge games. Also has a mesh pouch I put the joycon straps in. Perfect for light travel. But, the semi hardshell case and nice, thick zipper feels very protective and high quality.

u/parad0xchild · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

If you're saying 2 pairs of joycons (2 left, 2 right) - the Nintendo travelers case works. This one

You just put 1 pair (with straps attached) in the left/right spot, with the pouch between them, then put the console in the other side (screen facing inwards of the case). Put the other 2 straps in the little bag.

u/Ryvaeus · 3 pointsr/NintendoPH

>TPU Cover:

That's pretty cool but I think I've seen it in Datablitz SM Megamall, weeks ago. Maybe it was a different brand, but I question the necessity of this considering you'll either be carrying the Switch in a travel case when it's out, or leaving it in its dock at home. And speaking of the dock, you'll have to remove the case every time you want to dock the Switch. Bit of a hassle if you plan on switching modes a lot.

>Messenger Bag (since I'm always moving weekly)

Datablitz carries this HORI travel bag for the Switch, which I bought for myself and it does a good job carrying the console, dock, HDMI cable, power adapter, and Joycon grip with extra Joycon attached. The dividers on the inside are modular and can be moved around to suit your packing style. It's about half the price of the messenger bag, and you can still stuff it into a backpack for portability (which is how I carry it around when I do need to bring everything, though that's only happened twice).

>Case (sana meron dito nito)

There are cases here though none that I've seen which have handles. This isn't an issue though if you've already got a bag or backpack to carry it in, which I highly recommend doing anyway; carrying a Nintendo-branded bag/case around, especially one tailor-fit for the Switch, is just begging to be stolen.

While I don't agree with the necessity of some of these accessories, my Switch use case may very well differ from yours (when you eventually do decide to get it). So if you still think those exact items are the ones you really need to get, then I'd suggest using a shipping forwarder like Jinio (Xend-owned), My-ShoppingBox (FICI-owned), or Shippingcart (LBC-owned) to receive and ship your orders directly to you. I've used all three and they're generally equally reliable.

Also have this memory card and haven’t had a problem at all. Had it for 2 months

Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case- Zelda Breath of the Wild – Link - Blue (Discontinued by Manufacturer)

And this case but it’s very basic and I don’t take my switch out of the house often and the price here is marked up as it was only 19.99 when I got it. Plus it only hold 8 games but I like the flap that covers the screen when it’s in it.

Hope this helps

amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

Get this one. Comes with 2 and it’s the highest of quality. Also a trick is to put it on in a bathroom after you’ve let the shower run with the water as hot as it will go. The steam eliminates the excess dust from the air.

u/vaughner · 3 pointsr/Switch

Not if you do it right.

Not sure if this is allowed but here is an Amazon link to the glass protector that I have.

It was easy to install. It came with all the necessary materials to ensure the screen is clean prior to installation. It also has two protectors in the pack so is a very nice deal.

Just take your time doing the installation. Make sure you follow the instructions. Like doing it in a bathroom after running the hot shower for a few minutes. The high humidity prevents dust from floating in the air as well.

u/fluffmiceter · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

amFilm Tempered Glass screen protector comes with 2 in one package. They're durable, have an elaborate guide to installation with no bubbles or dust, and fit seamlessly to the screen. If you're able to install each screen protector perfectly in one go, you'll only have to buy one package since it comes with 2.

If you're mostly going to be playing at home, I would HIGHLY suggest getting the Pro Controller. I know that is a tough money pill for your wallet to swallow, but it is worth every penny. It is ergonomically better than the Joy Con in the grip, and it will serve you well for long play sessions.

Also, even though you are mostly going to buy games physically, I recommend picking up a microSD card anyway for games that are only on the eShop and DLC. A 32GB or 64GB microSD card will be good for your needs.

As for game recommendations:

  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

  • Splatoon 2

  • Steamworld Dig 2 (currently eShop only)

  • Rocket League (currently eShop only)

  • DOOM

  • Skyrim (which releases this Friday)

    EDIT: Formatting.

    EDIT 2: I personally don't use screen protectors, but others will recommend this to you
u/flameylamey · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The amfilm tempered glass one is most people's go-to, it's the one I used also. Link

Joycons are fine if you have no other option, but the control sticks feel a bit handheld-y for TV play sessions IMO. The pro controller is just super comfy and solid feeling in your hands.

Sometimes I start playing with joycons in the grip just to change things up (and partially because I feel guilty for neglecting them when I went and bought several extra sets of joycons, lol) but I always end up gravitating back to the pro controller before long.

u/thewintersoldieramc · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

It is really up to you to make the decision, I, myself, have young nephews, my mom ran a daycare for many years, and I started gaming from an early age. The Switch has parental control features that will help you out. Moderation will be key and tailoring their time towards their behavior is a good way to keep them behaving well. I think they can enjoy it at their age, but sharing and discipline will be key.

I'll go with accessories first, screen protector is no 1 buy for young kids and expensive products.

A travel case and possible grips would also do you well. Other things like the wheel are more game dependent and preference dependent.

As for games, Mario Kart and Mario Odyssey are great choices right out of the gate. Cars 3 driven to win is also a competent racing game. Lego games are also good choices Here is a link to commonsensemedia, take it with a grain of salt and look more at the content than the suggested ages.

Hope some of this helps!

Edit: grammar and new link

u/eLKosmonaut · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch


I have this one, and its been to Jamaica and back without issue thus far. Mainly got it with the "always be prepared" mindset, but I love it. If you have other USB - C devices, you need to be sure not to charge the brick off of your device, because you can do that too ><

u/Slamdunkin48 · 3 pointsr/Switch

The switch definitely has the possibility for many accessories. I'll link all the stuff I've bought at the end because I would recommend all of them

There is built in storage but not enough. I will recommend any micro SD card that's either 64 or 128 gb depending on how many games you plan on downloading. If you're going mostly mobile eshop games would definitely be more convenient.

As for other items, I love my pro controller but its not a necessity. I also only use it at home so it might not be for you.

You need a case for it, no two ways about it. The good news is that they are pretty cheap. There's cases that just carry the console, that carry the console and some extras, and that carry pretty much everything you could want to carry. Unless you're taking the dock often, I would just suggest a case with some extra storage.

I'd suggest a battery bank. There are a million options out there, and most of it has to do with cost. Just buy a size you like from a trusted brand like anker, ravpower, or aukey.

You also need a screen protector, because the plastic screen is not exactly durable. Anything works, but I would recommend tempered glass.

Screen Protector

u/KoolAidMan00 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Great! I've used this one since launch day:

Fits just fine and it makes the system feel more premium like a smartphone

u/forestminish · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

It’s really honestly recommended to use one. If your Switch gets scratched or scuffed over the years, you’ll be SO glad it’s on a protector and not the actual screen.

I promise the tempered glass ones are super easy to put on and they are made to not bubble easily. They are only about $8 and it’s a very worthwhile investment. It comes off pretty easily so even if you did mess up, you can take it off without ruining your screen.

You could probably even buy one at Best Buy or another tech store and ask someone there to help you put it on if you didn’t want to do it yourself.

u/IrishHog09 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I’ve bought two of these, one for my original Switch, and another for the V2 I just got. I love them.

amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

u/pokeguy64 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Best screen protector, amFilm on Amazon, great glass screen protector for only 10 bucks and it comes with two.

Amazon Link:

As for the Pro Controller it's had mixed feelings, personally I love it but some people don't. There is a problem though with the D-Pad currently where it sometimes registers extra input, like left or right when pressing up so I'd suggest to hold over just a bit until a new wave comes out with the fixed issue

u/queuebitt · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Those kind of products are more about convenience than being the best option.

You definitely want a screen protector. The amFilm 2-pack is considered the best around here.

You also want a carrying case. I recommend either the Hestia Goods or Butterfox models. I have the former and love it. The later is the most recommended around Reddit.

Between the screen protector and case from Amazon you're at the same $20 as the starter kit. So you can either get two high quality items, or more lower (but doable) quality items.

u/jodic100 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I picked this screen protector up on launch day, and its been fantastic since day one. Super cheap, easy to put on, and comes with 2 in the pack. I think alot of people went with this one since it was the first tempered glass one i remembered seeing when the Switch launched.

As for cases, there are a TON of them, i ended up just going with this sleeve just because it was the least bulky and easy to put in a pocket and take with me on my work commute... but again, check out Amazon, there are so many different variations, with different compartments, etc etc

u/dgiangiulio228 · 3 pointsr/PS4

I've had my eye on this one and it's in my amazon wish list. I heard it's the best one out there and the reviews back it up.

POWER A DualShock 4 Controller Charging Station for PlayStation 4 by POWER A

u/cheapL3Y · 3 pointsr/PS4

Alternatively, pick up something like this. I picked up one of these a few weeks ago and love it. My controller is always charged because I just drop it on this thing when I'm done playing. It's not much more expensive than a Micro USB cable, and it's more convenient.

u/pr0adam · 3 pointsr/PS4

IMO drop the vertical stand, get a second remote and then purchase this :

Also no need to get a cooling fan either, just give your PS4 room on the side and back to breathe.

u/ZambonieDrivor · 3 pointsr/PS4

PowerA Charging Station - 2 controllers, not little kid friendly, as it has a spring to load/unload the controller and kids will just pull it off. If the spring is in the incorrect position, it can be difficult to put the controller on charge.

Collective Minds PSVR Stand and Charging Station - 2 controllers, 2 move controllers, and 1 USB slot for headset or PSVR AIM controller.

PlayStation Platinum Headset - Went through 2 PS Gold headsets due to weak plastic frame. Platinums feel more sturdy. Haven't used too much to test durability. Great sound, but I am not an audiophobe.

PSVR AIM Controller - Got it bundled with Firewatch. Read that it felt good in hands. I thought it felt a little awkward, but definitely easy enough to use. Just have to get used to the button layout.

AC Infinity Fans - These are 80mm fans. It comes with 2 fans in parallel that are powered over USB. I don't use my PS4's USBs, because those are taken up with other accessories, so I have it attached to my surround sound receiver. One fan pulling air from the back of the Pro, and the other directing the fan out of the shelf area. I recommend these, as I've noticed the spin up on my Pro has significantly went down.

u/J0hnnyArs0n · 3 pointsr/PS4
u/Korpse223 · 3 pointsr/PS4

Most 120hz TV's are really 60hz displays with software that makes it look smoother. Many TV's come with a game mode that disables the software because it adds input lag. Also look out for input lag in TV's. Some brands tend to have a higher input lag but generally Sony, Samsung, LG, and Vizio are pretty good.

I'd definitely pick a 1080p display over a 720p one. Even though a few games like assassins creed unity output at 900p the ps4 will scale it up to 1080p and there is a very noticeable difference between 720p and 1080p.

If you have kids or need to be quiet at night pick up a pair of headphones. They can plug right into your controller and the games audio will go through them. If online will be your thing skip the headphones and pick up a headset. Sony's gold wireless headset is a pretty good one and should be on sale either right now or by Monday. No cooling fans will be necessary but make sure you have a spot set up that gives your ps4 enough room. If you're picking up a second controller consider picking up a charging station that plugs into an outlet. I have the nyko one and it has been great so far but I've also heard really good things about the power A one. If you're not getting a second controller don't worry about buying a dock. I don't own the PS camera or a sound bar/sorround sound system so I can't really help there.

Here's a few TV's that an input lag website recommends for gaming:

Power A charging dock:

Nyko charging dock:

Edit: Target has the gold wireless headset for $40. The deal is for in store only.

u/biezel · 3 pointsr/PS4

For DS4 charging, I definitely recommend picking up this dock and a second controller. Always have one charged, and plug it into the wall instead of taking up a USB port.

u/xCurlyxTopx · 3 pointsr/PS4

My controllers don't charge from a wall outlet but a portable charger or right from the ps4 works fine.

Other option is to purchase this dual EXT charger. It charges ps4 controllers from the bottom port. Only one I've been able to find anywhere

EXT dual port charger this is for so just change to your country

u/rube · 3 pointsr/PS4

Get one of these:

It's now just a normal habit for me to click the DS4 down onto the dock to charge it after every play.

u/Wisgood · 3 pointsr/editors

Definitely not enough buttons for me on those.

Try a 18-button gaming mouse like this:
Or this:

If anyone knows of something with more buttons hmu.

It's so great to have modifiers on your thumb. Shift click drag, and then alt click ripple edits all day.

Thumb buttons:


  • Zoom in

  • zoom out


    J rewind

    L forward

    Enter render

    Shift-E (en/disable)

    Ctrl Z undo

    V (pointer)

    C (razor)

    A (track selection)

    My wheel button is set to spacebar, my dpi up arrow is Ctrl (use for paste with c and v thumb buttons), my dpi down arrow is save.

    I also use a Logitech g-13 on left hand with thumbstick mouse and mostly the same macros plus buttons for delete/paste/copy/cut/up/down/save/render/j/k/l/i/o/c/v/a/x/marker/space/

    And then some more advanced macros such as one button for (razor here, select forward, cut selection, select gap, delete gap), another the same except (razor select backward, cut, select/delete gap), and then I use (ctrl-shift-v paste insert) on the timeline above.

    Macros are awesome. Just don't get lost in button wonderland. Or do. Actually, do. It's so worth it. Wonderland is awesome.

I have owned a Naga and a G600. Both are fine. But honestly I am using this $30 one now for the past year and it works great.

If you do like full keypads - Logitech G600 - $53 US

Logitech does pretty good with their mice. While I like the Razer Naga better in use, the G600 is more durable in my experience.

That said, there's plenty of less known brands for cheaper prices that still have decent ratings such as the UtechSmart Venus - $39 US

If you have or can order something like this, I think it would be pretty easy:

Set your hotkeys to the number pad along with jump and you can use mouse movement for character control. I use this control scheme with wasd movement but it could easily be modified for one handed use.

u/Frostbitten_zF · 3 pointsr/whatisthisthing

This is it! My brother bought a new mouse a little while ago, this must have come with it. It is a UntechSmart Venus MMO gaming mouse. Of course when I asked him what this thing was he had no idea... Thank you!

u/Luminaria19 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I have this mouse. It regularly goes on sale for $30 or so. It's not a big brand, but hasn't failed me yet (have had it for a few years now) and the extra buttons are fantastic.

He's going to have a rough time getting both a many-buttoned mouse and headset for $50 though, at least if he wants anything of quality. A good headset can run that or more on its own.

u/Petra_Abelli · 3 pointsr/ffxiv

I second this, I've been using the Naga for years now and don't think I would ever want to go back. Razer has had the market to themselves for a long time, but I stumbled upon these while looking for the naga and g600 links. It's good to see that there's some competition coming in the market, but I couldn't tell you if these two are worth getting.

Gonna echo what several other users said. My wife uses a G600, and I prefer the Redragon Perdition.

u/DubiousEthicality · 3 pointsr/MMORPG

Redragon Perdition. I picked this up for $35 last December, intending to use it for a couple of months. It has since seen a month of playtime in FFXIV, and plenty in other MMOs. I use it every single day and can't recommend it enough.

And it's 4.5 stars on Amazon with 2.5k reviews, which is pretty crazy.

Edit: a word

u/uzuhl · 3 pointsr/MouseReview

Yeah, I can't see a use for 16.4k DPI on a mouse at all, and that's coming from someone who does use a high DPI. I usually have mine sitting at around 3500-4000 (to be fair, I don't play any FPS games). And those seem slow to me but I still wouldn't touch 16.4k.

Also, if you want painful, then here you go.

u/DriveByStoning · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

I'm not the person you responded to or a shill, but I've had this mouse for years and it's great.

u/JulsIII · 3 pointsr/Vive

The TM 16000 HOTAS - I use this for ED - Super awesome for the price. Most HOTAS are overpriced. This one is fantastic for the cost. TONS of buttons and neat features on the throttle you won't see anywhere else! I love the little throttle finger joystick, it makes for perfect lateral and vertical movements to mix with the joystick movements. The X52 will match the in-game model better, but honestly while in VR and doing stuff you're not going to be starring at your joystick and throttle in-game at all. Best budget HOTAS imo.

amazon link -

u/VRegg · 3 pointsr/Vive

Yes, at least for me after a few hours. Just don't push yourself and take breaks. I've logged 21 hours so far and don't get it at all anymore.

I have 1.4 set as my SS in the SteamVR ini and VR set to medium with my GTX 980. It is still grainy but I find the text fairly easy to read. Works fairly well though I can notice a little struggling in stations. Asynchronous reprojection works well for this game since it is a seated experience so make sure it is on.

If you are looking for a HOTAS system I'd recommend this one. It is newer and built with Elite Dangerous in mind with a built-in profile for it in game. I came from a Xbox 360 controller and it was well worth it.

u/tbonge · 3 pointsr/Elite_Dangerous

Put the T.160000 on price watch on amazon, it often will drop in price to under $99. It was $99 last month and $89 in December.

I picked up the Thrustmaster T16000M FCS Flight Pack (comes with pedals) for $129 in January.

u/juniorspank · 3 pointsr/PS4

I'd say get this because the DualShock 4 is a solid controller as is.

u/rocknroyal · 3 pointsr/PS4

They're good while they last, but they are super cheap and don't last very long. They also have terrible customer service from what I've had to deal with.

I would recommend getting the Collective Minds PS4 Strike Pack.

It plugs into your controller and basically turns it into a Scuf. It is definitely one of the cheapest options. It has the paddles and actually has some mods built in if you're into that kind of stuff. I don't use them, but it has rapid fire, drop shot, etc. The only down side to it is that you have to be plugged in all the time for it to work, but it comes with a very long cord.

u/Mennenth · 3 pointsr/SteamController

someone suggested this in the past; almost everyone agreed it would be a cramped mess if nothing was removed... and nothing should be removed otherwise its not a Steam Controller.

Have you considered something like this for your Steam Controller, or if you have the budget a ds4 with a strikepack?

u/smonty · 3 pointsr/PS4

This will let you remap the triggers. Might make some games easier to play for you without breaking the bank on one of those controllers.

They also have them at GameStop and Walmart.

u/SpaceMagic403 · 3 pointsr/CruciblePlaybook

Bumper moves jump to L1 I believe. (I Don't actually use bumper so I could be wrong, I run default with a button controller) So you can hit it while keeping your thumb on the joystick.

Strike pack adds to paddles to the back of your controller you can hit win your middle fingers. You can program them to whatever button you want. It simply clicks on to your controller.

u/Hydro_Slush · 3 pointsr/PS4

Easy setup. Tournament mode enabled default. Cheap and durable. Used with destiny for 100+ hours left paddle for jump and right paddle for slide.

u/rami_mardini · 3 pointsr/titanfall

Get this, heard about it a few days ago and immediately ordered one, it's basically a poor man's elite controller (just programmable paddles, which is what most people want scufs/elite controllers for)

u/DemonDeacon86 · 3 pointsr/CruciblePlaybook
Less expensive paddle pack, I've had a relatively seemless transition with mobility and at $40 it's a steal IMO. Could prib het this and a decent monitor. I'd still recommend monitor if u can't swing the $40 and use jumper or make L3 your X button to jump

Good case for Nyko Docking Kit?

I have the $20 Switch Deluxe carrying case I'm very happy with it, and the material. It's very durable.

It's just not deep enough. I'm wanting something that I can use to carry the Switch, 2 extra joycons + straps, Nyko dock, charger, and hdmi cable. I don't want that bigger suitcase of a case that is meant for the standard dock.

Anyone have an suggestions?

u/LordWinslow · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace
u/idrmyusername · 3 pointsr/battlestations
u/Holint_Casazr · 3 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Your cheapest option would be the Thrustmaster T-Flight. In your price range the Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS would be a good option.

I myself use the throttle (TWCS) of the T-16000M FCS together with a Cobra M5 because I don't like that the T.16000 stick has a lot of buttons on its base, which is annoying to me/of no use in battle. But since you are in the USA (I guess, if your budget is in $) that is not really a option for you since the Cobra M5 is a europe/russian thing it costs much more in the states than here (I got mine for sub 50$, then it is worth it).

For a higher budget the x56 Rhino can be a good option, though the quality can be questionable.

If you are still unsure about your options visit /r/HOTAS, they know a lot and can help you narrow down your choices.

u/SomniumOv · 3 pointsr/oculus

I assume you mean Flight Stick and/or HoTaS by controller ?

Depends on your budget, really. The default recommendation for lower budgets is the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X, it's the best of the very cheap stuff :

But i'd really recommend to go higher-budget and get the model above, from the same manufacturer, the Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS :

The stick is comparable, but the Throttle is a lot better.

If you're going higher-budget than that (there's really no limit to those ahAh) you should do research, /r/hotas is a good subreddit. You're likely to see a lot of recommendations for the X52 and X55 but I wouldn't really recommend them, for the price they're very plasticky, and have too high of a failure rate.

If you mean gamepad, then go with the Xbox One controller, it's fine.

u/skermy · 3 pointsr/flightsim

>What do I need in a computer/hardware to run this game optimally

Broadly speaking- A 4th Gen Intel i5 or better for the CPU. GTX 1060 or better for your Graphics. 16GB of RAM, and a Solid State Drive for storing the game on. DCS has some long loading times, and the SSD will cut them down as much as possible. For VR, the Graphics Card will manage but I recommend a GTX 1070 or above.

One problem you'll have getting a gaming PC right now is that RAM and Graphics Cards are both in short supply and supply. As such their prices have gone up quite a bit. Graphics cards doubling in price in some cases. While I would typically recommend building your own PC due to price and quality reasons, a prebuilt PC may actually be cheaper now. Make sure you ask around, both with your friend and on here before you buy one. We'll set you straight.

> I also am considering going VR with Rift for full immersion, would that require addition components and is it worth it?

Personally I think VR is absolutely worth it. I've had my Oculus Rift for nearly a year now and have put a few hundred hours into DCS with it. You can usually demo VR units in places like Fry's Electronics or other such shops. Sometimes even Best Buy. Give it a try some time. VR will come with everything you need out of the box. Except the Computer, of course.

>Any helpful input is much appreciated.

As far as other stuff, you'll need a Flight Stick and Throttle (HOTAS). I typically recommend the Thrustmaster T.16000M as a starter all-round HOTAS. It's built well, has a lot of buttons, and is precise. You could get something lower-end, but I wouldn't recommend it. If you have something particular you want to fly, other HOTAS sets might be better suited, but the T.16000M will do anything well.

Pedals are helpful but not really something I would urge you get unless you're planning on flying Helicopters. Especially the Huey. You need a good Rudder input to tame it. If I had to recommend a set for the average user it'd probably be the CH Pro Pedals Get them used though. Trust me when I say this- CH kit are built like tanks. Get them second hand from a good Ebay seller and pocket the extra cash.

If you end up deciding to go without VR, then you will need a headtracker of some sort. They work by using a camera and some software to track the position of some Infrared LEDs attached to a hat or headset, then translate that into an input in game. This lets you look around your cockpit. That may not sound like much but it's a game changer. The official product is called TrackIR5. I don't recommend you get this. While it is the easiest to set up and is perfectly good quality, it is vastly overpriced. Trackhat or Delanclip make good products. Pair that with this camera and you're good to go.

I know that's a lot of info but DCS can be a little daunting to get into, especially if you're not already versed in PC gaming. Hopefully this helped and if you have any questions feel free to PM me :)

u/SlothOfDoom · 3 pointsr/EliteDangerous

I'm using the T16000M and it has been great for the price. I find it fairly comfortable and there are lots of button options for various things.

That said, mine has had some build quality issues (which some googling has shown me is not terribly uncommon), and I have disassembled both the stick and throttle recently to unpinch wires and reset pots that have become misaligned. It can also do with a serious re-greasing right out of the box with a high quality grease, but that might just be me being picky.

u/LevelOneLion · 3 pointsr/EliteDangerous

I'm currently using the Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS and it's wonderful!

I'm not sure what is the current "best" is, but this is a great budget set up. It feels well built and is a pleasure to use. I believe this was developed with Elite in mind but should work fine with other games as well.

u/Blu_Haze · 3 pointsr/Vive

I'm not really sure what they're using. It honestly might even be bespoke controllers made from parts of the actual aircraft they're training for.

On the consumer side though there's several options depending on your budget. Just make sure what you choose also has a throttle as HOTAS is something I would consider a requirement for DCS.

If you're just starting out or if your budget isn't that great then in my opinion the best bang for your buck is a Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS.

The joystick is arguably the most accurate in its price range and uses HallEffect sensors which won't degrade over time like potentiometers. It's also versatile since it's also great for space games if you decide realistic flight sims aren't for you. The throttle has an analog thumbstick for newtonian physics and there's a matching left handed stick if you want to go for a HOSAS setup instead.

If you want something more substantial and plan on flying the A10C a lot then the Thrustmaster Warthog might be for you. It's more expensive but also made from all metal and is a near exact replica of the actual flight controls.

Just be aware that it doesn't have any twist stick functionality so you'll also need rudder pedals to make the most of this setup.

If you don't care what it looks like and want something in the midrange that will last forever the CH Products Fighterstick and throttle are made by a company that mainly makes joysticks for real world heavy machinery.

They know how to make something that can take a beating and keep on ticking. My only complaint is the design hasn't changed since the 90s when it was first introduced. It still uses pots instead of HallEffect, has a lower resolution, and frankly looks a bit dated to me.

Personally I use the VPC MongoosT-50 base from Virpil. It's more modular and tunable than the other options. You can completely swap out the internal camber depending on if you want a hard center, something softer, or even none at all. You can also change the tension of the springs without having to mod it as well.

The best part though is the different grips. The main grip they offer is modeled after Russian aircraft but if I'm flying something else I can just swap it out. When I want to run CAS in an A10C I bought a separate grip from the Thrustmaster Warthog and it just screws right on to the VPC base.

u/70KnotsCheck · 3 pointsr/hoggit

Hey man, great work for a Xbox controller! Next step is a joystick. If you're looking for some cheap ones that'll do everything you need to, the [Logitech Extreme 3D Pro] ( is the place to look, it's around $30 to $40 from most retailers, but the price also equates to lower quality, and not a bad experience but one that could be improved upon significantly. The next step up would be a [VKB Gladiator] ( A bit of a jump in price (nearly double, can be had for around $100USD +/-$25), but most reviews say it's stellar and a couple people around this subreddit love it. The $200~ price range after that is a bit iffy, as you get sub-par quality most of the time, but the [Thrustmaster T.1600M HOTAS] ( has kind of alleviated that issue. Most reviews make it out to be excellent for the price. If you've got the change, I think it'd be a great place to start. Other than that there's not much in the $300-$200 price range. In the $500-$400 price range however, there's the one and only [Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS] (, which is extremely expensive but modeled after a real A-10C and is of stellar quality. You're going to need rudder pedals if you go that route though, so I'd advise against it as it's got quite a premium to pay.

Glad you're enjoying the hobby, and hopefully you can expand to a stick soon and get even better. No pressure to get one if you're fine with the controller, but it can totally enhance your experience.

u/sushi_cw · 3 pointsr/EliteDangerous

There aren't a lot of cheap HOTAS options. Some things to consider:

  • T-Flight HOTAS X is relatively cheap at $50, but has relatively few buttons to work with and mediocre sensors that can make fine aiming difficult. A lot of people use it and are very happy with it though.
  • T.16000M FCS is the next step up, and although it's fairly new it seems to be getting a pretty good reception. It's over your budget at $129 though.
  • Dual joysticks is another totally viable and fun way to play, although it may take a bit more work to find a way to control all thrusters that feels natural (some people use twist for forward/reverse, some add rudder pedals, etc). There are obviously lots of possible combinations, one that works for your budget is a T-16000m combined with a Logitech Extreme 3d pro, for $95 combined.

u/StealthyNeo · 3 pointsr/hoggit

I don't wanna upset you. Unfortunately yes, you can't use your Rift controllers to control throttle/stick in DCS at the moment (not sure about future). But give it a try with a cheap HOTAS and it is a blast for sure.

I found a few joysticks for you on Amazon:

Logitech 3D Pro - refurbished

Logitech 3D Pro

Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS

Logitech X-52 Pro

Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS on DELL - the best ever HOTAS

u/billymcguffin · 3 pointsr/starcitizen

Personally I don't think a HOTAS is required, but it is certainly more immersive and you do tend to get more granular control of your ship versus a keyboard.

Probably the best value HOTAS right now is the T16000M FCS, which is currently ~100 USD. You may also want to check out /r/hotas for more in depth advice.

u/Twister-SF · 3 pointsr/EliteDangerous

I highly recommend going over to /r/hotas for reviews and setups. But if you want a recommendation, I've heard nothing but great things about the Thrustmaster T.16000M.

u/Valway · 3 pointsr/oculus

Some of the higher level players swear by kb+m for pvp and combat. They play flat, but it is what it is considering. If you can get used to kb+m or controller, you'll be fine.

However this is the HOTAS I own, and I would recommend it any day. Elite has preset bindings for a good selection of HOTAS already, and this is no exception.

u/alconaft43 · 3 pointsr/oculus
u/Ophichius · 3 pointsr/Warthunder

The Extreme 3D Pro is a very entry-level stick. It will get the job done, but you need to know that you'll be replacing it in a couple years or less if you use it heavily. It's plastic-on-plastic and wears pretty fast, and it's not got the greatest precision to begin with.

The T16000M is a better entry-level stick, being both more precise and better able to stand up to wear over time.

If you can convince your dad to spring for something slightly more expensive, the T16000M HOTAS package gives you a throttle to use as well, and would mean that you could set up to acquire an affordable sim package over the next year by using facetrackNOIR or other webcam-based head tracking, plus saving up for a set of rudder pedals.

u/loomynartyondrugs · 3 pointsr/EliteDangerous

In case you ever wanna switch to the dark side, I've posted a breakdown of the current hotas situation on the vive subreddit before, lemme see if I can find it.

Found it.

The cheap end would be the T-Flight Hotas X ($50).

On the cheaper mid range side, either the Saitek x52 ($140), or the Saitek x52 Pro ($180)

On the more pricey side of the mid range I can suggest the Saitek x55/x56 ($250)

Top of the Line would be the Thrustmaster Warthog ($400)

Since then thrustmaster also released the T.16000M ($130) which as far as I know was made in communication with Frontier so it should be a pretty good fit for Elite.

u/Alvatore · 3 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Honestly, if you're going to spend money on a HOTAS just ... buy a half-decent one. Get the T16000 HOTAS package and be done with it for the foreseeable future. It's inexpensive, built relatively well for its price point (there's a video of the stick and throttle being disassembled) and reports say it performs well.

This one:

u/OfficialShip2000 · 3 pointsr/flightsim
  1. This is the link to the XP10 section, but nearly all of them should work fine in XP11

  2. Someone else can answer that

  3. The Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS seems to be what everyone is recommending for an entry level HOTAS

  4. For the base game, that's it really. Fly around. Generally people fly between two airports like in real life. Things get more interesting if you add stuff like FSEconomy or multiplayer like VATSIM, IVAO, or PilotEdge

  5. For X-Plane, I would only really buy plane addons. Nearly all the scenery you will ever need is free on places like the fourm. The only other thing I would recommend is looking at one of the weather addons.

  6. There are many, can't name them off the top of my head

  7. MisterX is the end all be all of freeware scenery

    The planes I would recommend are the FlightFactor 767, FlightFactor 757, IXEG 737, Rotate MD80, AirfoilLabs 172SP, Any of the Dreamfoil helicopters, and whichever Carenando planes have the Reality Expansion Packs.
u/PenguinJim · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

There's a new T.16000M HOTAS set now:

Not exactly a bargain, sadly, but I'll be keeping my eye out for sales.

For the cheapy Thrustmaster HOTAS, apparently the hardware in the PS4 remake is higher quality (it's not just different-colored plastic on top of the same electronics), and it gives a superior deadzone to the old PS3-compatible stick. It costs a bit more, though (can see it for $70 versus the original at $50).

u/TyranusCannabis · 3 pointsr/wiiu

You could get something like this adapter and plug your GC controller in assuming you have one:

Or the Hori Battle Pad (Which isn't as good as a real GC controller but still nice), both are plugged in through your wiimote to act as "unofficial" classic controllers. So you can use a GC controller on any game that allows a Classic Controller.

As for an actual 64 Controller, that'd be pretty difficult but I think the GC controller is fundamentally better.

u/marioman63 · 3 pointsr/wiiu

no controllers have been confirmed for smash 4, but your safest option would be the classic controller. i have heard this is a good option if you want to use gamecube controllers on wii u. note that games do not detect the controller as a gamecube one, but it at least gives you the button layout of a gamecube controller for games that use classic controllers. because the system thinks it is a classic controller, it will work in both wii u and wii mode, and therefore brawl and (most likely) smash 4.

I'm assuming you mean this, the Mayflash Adapter. From what I've heard it works great. It just maps the Gamecube controller as though it was a Classic Controller.

u/Randomwaffle23 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

u/Ligless · 3 pointsr/gaming

It lets you plug the GC controller into a wiimote like a classic controller, so it will work for any game with classic controller support, like brawl.

u/theblamergamer · 3 pointsr/Games

This may solve the problem.

u/DJWhyYou · 3 pointsr/gaming

You can buy adapters that plug into your WiiMote for your GCN controllers.
I'm not sure if that exact one will be compatible with SSBU, but it is compatible with Brawl when played on WiiU. There are more out there now than will be compatible with SSBU.

u/Kajean · 3 pointsr/gaming

Apparently this is a thing. So just keep using GC controller I guess.

u/RastaSauce · 3 pointsr/smashbros

There is, but only with an wiimote and adapter for each GC controller.

u/nthny · 3 pointsr/nintendo

There are a number of solutions that involve plugging the controller into the Wii Remote so that the Wii U will read them as a Classic Controller.

For GameCube, you've got a couple of options. You can go with this adapter, which lets you use your existing GameCube controller. There's also this controller from Hori, which is an actual Classic Controller in the exact shape of the GameCube controller. I have both, and they both work well, but I prefer the Hori controller.

For N64, there's this adapter. It's the same idea as the GameCube adapter linked above. I haven't used this one myself, so I can't tell you from experience how well it works.

Because all of these options register as Classic Controllers, they have the advantage of being compatible with any Wii or Wii U game that uses it, which is very many of them. For N64 games on the Wii U Virtual Console, you'll be able to adjust the button mapping in the options menu to make sure everything plays just the way you remember it.

I hope this is helpful. Enjoy your Wii U, and welcome to the club!

u/Gammapod · 3 pointsr/wiiu

There's only one game in Nintendo Land that requires a Nunchuk, but it's one of the most fun (it's the Metroid one). The rest only need Wii Remotes (be sure you buy ones with MotionPlus, though, as the Zelda game requires it).

For Brawl, you can use either a Wii Remote, Wii Remote + Nunchuk (my personal favorite), Wii Remote + Classic Controller, or a Gamecube controller. There are no Gamecube controller ports on the Wii U, though, so you'd have to use an adapter.

Mario Kart Wii can be controlled with a Wii Remote, Wii Remote + Nunchuk, or Wii Remote + Classic Controller. I wouldn't recommend buying any Classic Controllers unless you plan to play a lot of Wii games. The newer Pro Controllers are better, but are incompatible with Wii games.

edit: Linked to a gamecube adapter.

It plugs into the Wiimote and treats the GC controller like a Classic Controller.

u/Oshtoby · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

Project M on the Wii U will only support Wiimote, Wiimote and Nunchuk, Wii Classic Controller, and Wii Classic Controller Pro. It will NOT support the Wii U Pro controller, the Wii U Gamepad or the 4 port Gamecube Adapter that plugs directly into the Wii U's USB port.

Now, what you CAN do to play with a Gamecube controller is buy a Gamecube Controller to Wii Classic Controller converter. There are only two that I know of. They are these two links:

These will make your Gamecube controller plug into the bottom of your Wiimote and make it act like a Wii Classic Controller with all the functionality of a Gamecube Controller.

u/Bill_H_Cosby · 3 pointsr/smashbros
u/Neversoft · 3 pointsr/wiiu

You can get GCN to Wii Remote adapters (gives you a GCN connector on the Wii Remote and even works with the Wavebird) and I think they're programmable so you can map the buttons how you like. So hopefully, a dedicated Fightstick shouldn't be necessary for those of you who prefer the GCN controller... Personally I'm shit at Smash Bros regardless of the controller :D

Here you go

u/rageaholic55 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

You can use a Gamecube Controller. Nintendo does have a problem with not patching/updating games. I hope, now that they're finally doing DLC, that maybe they've changed their tune on that (Probably not though).

u/StNowhere · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

If you have a PS3, grab the Legacy Collection. It has MG1 & 2 (the old MSX games), MGS2, MGS3, MGS4, and Peace Walker. Also if you buy a new copy, it should come with a download code for MGS1.

From there, all you're missing is Ground Zeroes, and Phantom Pain.

u/tremens · 3 pointsr/PS3

Hey mate. I posted this over in another thread, but it's just up your alley. Also of note right now, is that Target has a 2 for $25 sale right now - Of that list I'd recommend Ico/Colossus HD, Twisted Metal, Little Big Planet, and GT5 - I'm not going to include inFAMOUS 2, solely because you can grab the Collection for around $20 if you look for it, but that's the only reason. Also, Target was doing a Buy 2 Get 1 on many titles online (and all titles in-store) but I'm not sure that's still going on.

>In the same boat. Here's the list I've compiled so far, targeting bang-for-buck and PS3/console exclusives mostly, since I already have an extensive PC collection. In no particular order:

God of War Saga Collection, God of War Ascension

Uncharted Greatest Hits Dual Pack, Uncharted 3

>Everything listed here can be had for less than $30, most around $20, and many of them are 2-5 games per purchase and set you into a franchise.

>If you find Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection for around $50, BUY IT. Otherwise, probably best to skip it. Tough series to jump into around 5.

>And whatever you do, get PlayStation Plus immediately. If you buy a year it works out to a few dollars per month (newegg had a year for $40 recently on eBay) and you get 2-3 PS3 games every month, AND you get Vita, PS4, and PSP games. "BUY" THESE TOO! They are free and accessible as long as you have a PS+ account once you "tag" them to your account. If you every buy a PSP, Vita, or PS4 on the cheap you will have an instant and extensive back catalog of games ready to go.

>Oh, and Uncharted 3 is currently free on PS+ but expiring soon!

EDIT: Amazon has the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection for $55 ($60 shipped) currently. I thought I had a deal on it for $45, but the reseller cancelled it after I posted it on here saying that had an "inventory error" (they showed they had numerous copies in three of their brick and mortar stores and were out of stock at one, so I find that hard to believe they didn't have at least the copy I ordered - more like they got flooded with 30-40+ orders at once and realized they were selling it pretty far below the going rate.)

u/OneRFeris · 3 pointsr/thelastofus
u/oiskaio · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

I'd recommend the Legacy Collection if you can find it for fairly cheap. It keeps going in and out of print it seems.


u/xxdofxx · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

Just to clear up any confusion (because when I went to buy these games 6 months ago I got it messed and up wasted $10.) The Legacy Collection includes The HD Collection, MGS IV, and a PSN code for MGS1 (note this ISN'T the Twin Snakes version, which is Gamecube exclusive and is much better in almost every way. So much so, that IMO you should just watch a long play on youtube instead of playing the original PS1 version.)

So if you DON'T have MGSIV and want to play/experience the whole series, absolutely get the more complete Legacy Collection. Only buy the stand alone HD Collection if you already have a copy of MGSIV and are going to watch Twin Snakes (MGS1)on youtube (which I recommend either way.)

u/KyuubiReddit · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

for Metal Gear Solid, you can start with Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes on GameCube (will also play on a Wii), then get the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection on PS3 to play MGS 2, 3 and 4.

EDIT: Oh I just noticed you only have the PS3 and PS2. You'll have to get the PS1 version of MGS on the PSN.

u/Bopsybops · 3 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Lots of nanomachines and badass battle tanks. Philosophy and shit. Buy a PS3 and the Legacy Collection + Metal Gear Rising, and that's everything.

I’m not sure what you are looking for but make sure you get a tempered glass screen protector:

amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

u/Teggert · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The screen is such soft plastic though, even something as dull as car keys will scratch it. Heck, mine had permanent scratches in the corners from the dock within the first week, and I thought I was being super careful as well. I mean it's only 8 bucks never to have to worry about it again.

u/TyMiles2012 · 3 pointsr/nintendo

amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

This one. I absolutely love it! One thing to mention though, the protector is a little thick. You'll feel the friction taking it in and out of the dock, but obviously plastic is MUCH softer than glass so it's not gonna scratch it. Really it just makes the switch fit snug. Though reviewers are saying it makes no difference, or they're getting friction as I am, so that probably shows how the docks have been made inconsistently. But like I said, the protector will keep the dock from scratching your screen anyway.

u/Stokes26 · 3 pointsr/Switch

This screen protector is probably the best I've used across any device and definitely the easiest I've ever installed.


If you plan on using it in handheld mode for long periods of time, you're going to want to get these grips + carrying case. Seriously, your hands will thank you. I use my Switch almost exclusively in handheld mode, and have absolutely no hand/finger fatigue during longer gaming sessions.

u/taegha · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

u/Skipspace · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

At the bare minimum, this screen protector .

After that it's more just preference. I'd recommend trying out the joycon grip before you immediately get a pro controller, as it's actually a lot more comfortable using the joy cons in the grip than I would have imagined. I haven't felt the need to get a pro controller just yet because of it.

u/Gamecube757 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

As far a screen protectors go, the AmFilm protector is the most popular, and has worked perfectly fine for me. link

u/Eurynom0s · 3 pointsr/LosAngeles

Let me offer up a personal experience here: do not even open the box unless you have a glass screen protector already on hand that you can apply IMMEDIATELY upon opening the box. People recommended this one to me.

The screen is plastic, not glass, and very easy to damage. If you're like me and buy a case but not a screen protector for your smartphone, you'd be very surprised at just how easy the screen is to damage. I got one dead-center in the middle of the screen that was just impossible to ignore after babying the thing (no docking, only playing in my bedroom, etc). I've seen other reports of similar gouges in the screen.

And I had to play hardball with Nintendo on "I'm going to return this to Amazon as defective" to get them to fix the screen for me. First they wanted me to pay $99...then $74...then $49...back and forth with me insisting that I was returning the device as defective until they finally gave me a "one time exception, it can't happen again" free repair.

I'd also put it on an Amex if you have one, since you get three months of purchase protection that includes accidental damage. There's some reports of the main unit being bendable after prolonged usage, so better to save the Amex claim for that should that problem affect you.

On a more positive note...while the price of the Pro controller is stupid, using a Pro controller to play the thing in portable mode is actually a pretty nice way to play. I think this is what I'd advise for a long flight, for instance.

[edit] There was a shortage of glass screen protectors right after launch. Major backorders. If I'd have ordered one, I'd have gotten it around the time I noticed the scratch.

u/jc9988 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hey! Your friend is pretty lucky! Here's some of my recommendations:

  1. Only 1 version of the switch. Joy con come in different colors. No difference in performance. Just go for favorite color.

    The most common combinations in box are the grey joy con and the neon blue and red joy con boxes.

  2. Typically there aren't any deals for the switch that I'm aware of but I did see another post where Toys R Us was listing 10% off for the switch as part of stores closing

  3. Get a screen protector. There's a cheaply priced one on amazon. I've copied the link Here. I'd also get a case for the switch. There's a list of cases that can be found on the wiki. Lastly, I highly recommend the pro controller. It's definitely not required but it has significantly improved my gaming experience.

u/MatNomis · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

If you're concerned about the screen at all--honestly, even if you're not--you should put a screen protector on it ASAP. This one is well-regarded: (amFilm tempered glass)

u/Heavenly_Hymns · 3 pointsr/consolerepair

I'm sorry about your screen, Friend. Maybe consider something like this for your next screen:

  1. Not sure about the bending, but scratches can be caused when putting Switch back into the dock, depending on who you ask this is either user error or a "defect" in the dock. I got a small knick on the very edge of the screen border, but I blame myself since I likely mishandled it when putting it back the dock. Your best bet is to get a screen protector, regardless of how careful you may or may not claim to be, this one comes highly recommended and is what I ended up using.

  2. Not much is known about what Nintnedo is planning for their new online network for Switch, but Virtual Console as we know it is will be replaced by....something.

  3. If you're worried about memroy, Best Buy and a few other retailers have a 128gig Class 10 micro SD on sale for $30 on Black Friday. It's probably the best deal as of right now and should hold most people over for a while.
u/diddith · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use this brand... 2 for $9.... I also use this brand on my Iphone and I have spiderwebbed the protector twice on my phone with no damage to the phone

u/jpw547 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

I have the amFilm tempered glass screen protector on mine and I really like it. I was hesitant about a screen protector at first because I normally don't put them on my devices, but I can hardly even tell that this one is on my Switch. No issues with glare that I've noticed either, and it's usually <= $10. (And that comes with 2, in case you mess up or wanna give one to a friend)

I don't have a battery pack for it, but I've been looking into them for a buddy of mine who is going on a trip from the US to the UK in a few months. The one I've been really thinking about is the RAVPower 20100 . It's on the more expensive end (~$50) but it is compatible with the Switch and will charge it ~3-4 times and only takes 4-5 hours to recharge the power bank.

As for the case I got one at Toys R Us last summer for about $20 and it has been fine. It's got some padding to protect the screen, and has these little plastic cases that can hold like 3 games and an SD card each I think... It doesn't have a ton of storage space, but it works. It depends on how much you want to put in there, but you definitely want some inside padded layer that lays on top of the screen so that nothing you put in there will put too much pressure on there.

u/rainbownapkin · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

A screen protector, preferably tempered glass. Here is a pack I bought from amazon for $9. It comes with two really nice tempered glass screen protectors.

u/The_vangelion · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Not sure about covering up what's already there, but to prevent future scratches, I highly recommend this

u/authentic010 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Tempered glass. Get this one amfilm tempered glass protector. ITs cheaper, thicker and has faster shipping that arrives the first week of the switch. It was only $13.98 total including expedited shipping

u/robeschi · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This site is a great read for chargers, power banks, cables, and has a few gift/traveling guides that you might find useful.

I love the Pro Controller (you may need two, I have a feeling you and your wife will fight over it.)

I don't know if it's to everyone's liking, but I find Diablo 3 an absolute blast and you can do local co-op docked or undocked with 4 people (each person can use 1 joycon, 2 joycons [one in each hand or both in a holder], or a different controller altogether.)

This is the tempered glass screen protector that is most often recommended on this sub. I like these Joy-Con holders - they make the Joy-Cons feel more like full-sized controllers and you can charge them right in the holder. You might want to get a bag to carry everything around in easily.

u/jk0455 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You should get a screen protector: it might help a bit with anti shatter... but mostly for keeping away scratches


I use the mumba rugged for my on-the-go usage. Its grip on the back is super comfortable in my hands and it's one of the more rugged cases. Most cases unfortunately you'll have to take off to use the dock but I don't mind doing that if it means I feel safer having my switch out on the go.

u/TheDarkHorse · 3 pointsr/Switch

I have this one:


It comes with two in case you mess up the application of the first. I've had it since launch and I still have my second one as the first is still in perfect condition.

u/BuiltFjordTough · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Seconded on tempered glass.

This thing was well worth the money. And it's a two pack. For reference I got it in June and the first one is still going strong, no issues.

u/Spleenzorio · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I saw these but I've never heard of that brand

u/GooTangClam · 3 pointsr/splatoon

It's [Mumba Nintendo Switch case] ( and I also have this screen protector. I don't know how comfortable grip is. I haven't used handheld mode ever since I got the pro controller. But it seems very sturdy and got 5 star reviews on amazon.

fyi try this goose neck mount if you want to play on the bed! I love this one when I'm feeling super lazy. But it's pain in the ass to adjust and put the switch on the mount. Maybe there is better one someone else can suggest.

Edit: forgot to mention, you cannot use the stand when its on the case! I wish it has a stand built in on the case. Also I dont know if it fits in the dock because I took it apart and replaced it with smaller dock.

u/UCLAKoolman · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Definitely recommend a screen protector since the switch's screen is plastic.

This is the one I recommend:

u/arib510 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

As /u/Quivico said, amFilm is a good brand, and the brand I went with. Specifically, I got this one, which appears to be on sale right now.

u/raple_syrup · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This exists but for some reason I'm just not sold on it.

u/RetroGamer9 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hori is making a stand that allows charging while playing, but obviously it's something else to carry around if you're looking for absolute portability.

u/NO_SPACE_B4_COMMA · 3 pointsr/ManjaroLinux

My motherboard is an asus so it might've been an issue with their shit drivers as well.

u/hoofadoo · 3 pointsr/buildapc

I got this one for my rig and never had a problem with it. Great build quality for the price and the reviews are great

You can get the red backlit for $37 or just plain black for $33

Redragon K552 KUMARA LED Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Black)

$40 for a black one with the num pad if you must have that, Redragon K551-N VARA Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Black)

however I find 10keyless boards to be nicer because of the size and I can't remember the last time I used the num pad.

u/reddited_bullets · 3 pointsr/buildapc

1.) take the money you are going to spend on that internal HDD and the external HDD and get you a "large as you can afford" internal SSD. I'd look at either a 1TB or (2) 500GB. Maybe something like this.

2.) Dont waste your money on that keyboard, if you are building a 'red' build, go to amazon and look at the 'red dragon' keyboards.

3.) also, stay away from off brands, IMO. It ain't worth the savings if you have to RMA the part. Mainly looking at the RAM you chose, but the SSD falls in that category also. read reviews. If there are only 2 reviews for something, I personally wouldn't trust it.

u/Loamawayfromloam · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Entry level mech keyboard now on sale for anyone interested. Blue switch equivalents, very click/loud.

Red Dragon K552 - 23% off - $31.45

u/DM725 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

The $25-$30 Redragon K552 Mechanical Keyboard is every budget build's friend.

u/PCtroubles7 · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

Red dragon kumara K552. Anyone who tells you that you can't get a good keyboard for cheap is un-informed. The Kumara is mechanical, heavy, rgb and a solid keyboard all around. I've had mine for 3 years with zero issues. It's 32$ and the only con is that it has no numpad. But if that's your thing, the Kumara k551(i think that's it) has a numpad and is 6 more dollars.

3000+ reviews and a 4.4 rating speaks volumes. Don't buy some overpriced bullshit. Here's a link:

u/Nishikienrai · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

A cheap decent keyboard is the Reddragon K552 for about $31 at the moment.

If you wish to spend a little bit more but better quality, I recommend the CoolerMaster Masterkeys S for ~$80

u/hakonab · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

There are some mech cloneboards on Amazon that'll go as low as the high $20s or $30s, but in the wild (like reddit) you might find a set of keycaps for $20 shipped....

u/LowBBZ · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Hell yeah, Red Dragon keyboard and Centrophorous, best priced budget equipment in my opinion. They were my first, too. They also have a very affordable mechanical keyboard.

u/AirlessTHEGOOSE · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Oh is it? Oh jeez...

For 40$ (now 33!) my first board was the Red Dragon Kumara - has those Outemu Blues and red backlighting that's not too obnoxious; although these days I'd reccommend a MagicForce 68 for a first time board.

Edit: Editing

u/satyanjoy · 3 pointsr/IndianGaming

Look like a membrane keyboard to me, check Redragon K552 KUMARA

u/nmcotton · 3 pointsr/buildapc

a lot of keyboards are branded as "gaming" but are cheap $10 keyboards with a couple bells and whistles, with a stiff premium. get him a mechanical keyboard, 100%. they can get pretty expensive, but redragon has a lot of budget mechanical keyboards that have solid feedback, a quick search returned this and this. they're the same keyboard, except the second has the numpad on the right of the keyboard. there are a lot of options from other brands, just be careful while looking to avoid the "mechanical feel" keyboards, as they aren't as durable or have as long of a lifespan.

u/UltimateCheeze · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I would go for a redragon k552 and maybe put some nice keycaps on it.

u/drakemcswaggieswag · 3 pointsr/buildapc

It’s honestly pretty great if you’re on a budget and don’t need a num pad. Looks nice and I’ve been using it since August with no issues

u/cheekynakedoompaloom · 3 pointsr/buildapc

for someone as nontechnical as it sounds like you are, i'd buy the ssd and cut costs by using a cheap kb and mouse. instead of $110 on name brand kb and mouse spend 10-20bucks on a gaming mouse and 30ish on a generic mechanical like [this] ( they'll do the job while you save for nicer but give you most of what the more expensive option does and spend the savings on a ryzen 1600. i'd also spend a few bucks and get the case you really want, the p400 is a solid case but the s340 elite is a better total package for not much more.

mice price and mice quality are not closely linked, as long as you spend more than 10 bucks on one and avoid the stuff that seems a little too good for the price you'll find something that will serve you just as well as a fancy logitech but at 15-20bucks instead of 60+. real example, my logitech g900 is a really nice mouse but at the $90 i paid its not even 2x better than my previous cooler master recon i paid 30ish for. the extra cost is almost all down to it being a fancier brand name and that its wireless.

u/Nebulyst · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

I think some versions are outemu, but when I bought it it was cherry.


u/DyLaNzZpRo · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace
  • Magicforce 68.

    Excellent budget option, pretty damn nice looking, comes with shockingly good ABS keycaps (they feel great, not very thick to be expected but they're damn nice for the price), comes in either Cherry MX, Gateron, Kailh or Outemu switch variants (obviously, price varies), has 3 different colour options (black, gold and silver/white) and has a couple of different LED options (typically from what I can tell, the Cherry MX/Gateron variants have either solid white or solid blue LEDs, whereas the Kailh/Outemu variants come with blue LEDs but orange WASD/arrowkeys. Has a removable cable too.

  • 'Generic' Kailh TKL

    I say generic because there's a lot of companies taking the reference of this board and rebranding it, just changing the logo etc. It's got decent build quality, cheap as hell in terms of price, Outemu switches from what I can tell, and well, it's cheap. Overall I'd choose the Magicforce over this any day, but it's an option of course.

    Those are the main 2 I'd consider, the fullsize Magicforce is also a decent option though it's a hair below $70.
u/DitzKrieg · 3 pointsr/SSBPM
u/dydtaylor · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Amazon typically has them for a pretty reasonable price, $28 right now, but not everyone likes the White ones because of preference issues (although a lot of fast, technical pros like Dr. PP use them).

You can also try Ebay if you want, as they typically have more expensive, rarer controllers. (They also have the club nintendo controllers, panasonic grey, clear controllers, etc. you just have to look and be willing to spend extra money)

u/pooch182 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

First party controllers are the only route you should be taking. For the memory card, you're probably fine. This is a great buy, and it'll last you well past the time 3 or 4 of the knock offs would last you.

u/thegigglepuss · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

The only reliable gamecube controllers I've found are the official nintendo controllers.
It's expensive, but they last the longest and feel the best

u/CosmikHippo · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Do NOT go off brand. First party controllers are the way to go for Gamecube. If you are a competitive gamer and want the most useful, best quality controller get one of these: The extra long cord is a life saver.

If you are just looking for run of the mill Gamecube controller, I would still just go with Amazon.

u/Szalkow · 3 pointsr/nintendo

>I wan't a brand new official GCN controller. Only have 2 clones.

Why wait?

u/SailorMercurySSB · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

I use one of these:

Basically they're the white japan-exclusive gamecube controllers manufactured during the wii's lifespan (hence their being white) but before smash 4's release.

The price for a new one has shot up a ton since the smash-branded GCCs came out (presumably because they're no longer manufactured?), but imo these feel way better than the sm4sh ones, both build quality and responsiveness-wise. Word on the street is (according to DJ Nintendo) they're also some of the best for shield dropping? At least in melee, where shield dropping also happens to be a lot tighter than in PM - not sure if this is a factor for you or not.

Regardless, if you're able to drop the cash on one I'd say it's definitely worth it and they're definitely top-notch.

The only downside is that they can in fact suffer from the "sticky trigger" syndrome, which is when pressing the triggers from a sharp downward angle/at the lower corner of the buttons will make them have a lot more resistance when sliding down, the "solution" to which is to just press them straight on instead (lol). That is, if you're hitting the triggers fairly normally, it likely won't even be a thing you'd notice - but it does exist.

u/Im_French · 3 pointsr/SSBM

Yeah they're made by nintendo and they're like the 2nd gen or something after the indigo controllers and made exactly the same, also it's the ones the majority of top players use iirc and they're known to be better than the smash 4 ones, still it's kind of a lottery and you could get one with shitty backdashes that never breaks in or something, you can never be 100% sure you'll get a perfect controller out of the box but the white japanese ones are your best bet.

Those are the ones:
Only found the smash 4 ones on US amazon for some reason :/, Dunno if you can still order those through canada

u/thezander8 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

We're playing a game with discs that costs $180 where the best controller costs $90 and you're worried about costs?

CRTs, Gamecubes, controllers, memory cards, and discs are just going to keep going up in price until the community can't grow anymore. A Melee port sucks in the short term but is very necessary in the long run.

u/zekkas · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Dear M2K, Amazon can handle all of your controller needs. Borrowing isn't necessary.

u/EyebeeLurkin · 3 pointsr/SSBPM
u/SplashAttack129 · 3 pointsr/nintendo

Right here, $28 a pop. Used my friends, its legit.

u/yerffej · 3 pointsr/smashbros

I got mine from Amazon, didn't realize the cord was long until it arrived. No complaints though.

Edit: Here ya go

u/TheLegendaryyFool · 3 pointsr/smashbros

A bit more expensive, but here

u/Psycho_Ghost · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

Have I got a [website] ( for you to look at! ;)

But seriously, welcome to the community! :D I would recommend investing in an official Gamecube controller as they control amazingly and are much more durable than third-party controllers.

u/NLCM · 3 pointsr/emulation

Those USB controllers are pure SHIT the thumb sticks on them are horrible and pretty much useless.

Best option is to pick up an original N64 controller from Ebay or craigslist and use it with this adapter:

Trust me, you'll waste your money if you buy one of those cheap knock-off USB n64 controllers.

u/DownloadingKFC · 3 pointsr/teenagers

emulators :D!
If you want to play with a friend, get project64k so you guys can play online.

get this if you want to use your controller

u/troweigh · 3 pointsr/gaming

Try getting one of these, and then run an N64 emulator on your computer. I do this with my SNES controller, and it works amazingly well for that. Also, I have a slight advantage, since I have one of my computers connected to my flatscreen.

u/habisch · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

I'm a big fan of emulation. If you think you may ever want to some more N64 gaming, consider picking up one of these adapters. That, plus an n64 controller will run you less than $30 and you've set up a pretty authentic n64 experience.

Also, people have reminded you of Link to the Past, and even the original Legend of Zelda (which I'd recommend you try eventually, if nothing else to get a feel for the types of games NES had!) - keep in mind these are easily emulated and a ps3 or xbox controller will map very well.

u/cakezilla · 3 pointsr/gaming
u/5thEye · 3 pointsr/zelda

These things are fucking amazing.

u/senichi · 3 pointsr/speedrun
  • I personally use this adapter and an actual N64 controller. I also own an N64 and play games on that (but can only stream PC, so can't stream console). It's really nice because I can use the same controller for console and emulator. I used to run with this controller, and it worked great, but I didn't like it because it was awkward when I played on console with an N64 controller. I know there are also a lot of emulator streamers that just use an Xbox 360 controller because they have native support with windows. Basically, use whatever is comfortable for you.

  • I just Google "___ N64 rom" and take either the top or second result. There's not really going to be a "safe" way to download roms because it's illegal and nobody is there to regulate it. It's always going to be a risk, but it usually isn't. At least I've never had any problems.

  • has the best prices I've seen. The only real competitors to that I can think of would be local game stores, which would still be more expensive, but the price is close when you add shipping costs.
u/Mooseral · 3 pointsr/Warthunder

Would have worked much like any gamepad:

The N64's single analog stick might make things interesting, though.

u/rupturedprolapsed · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Just get one of these and you're all set!

u/OminousHippo · 3 pointsr/gaming

One might consider investing in one of these.

u/THEREALKINGPRO · 3 pointsr/TagPro

So the first step is getting the controller to pc adapter, I have found one for a nice price here (you do not have to use that one, in fact you should be able to use any adapter, sadly there is no other way to do this without an adapter). The adapter should work right out of the box, the drivers should be preinstalled on your computer. There should be settings where you can change what gets controlled by the N64 controller. If it does not work right away, shoot me a pm and I will help yout get the software required to use the controller.

u/CaptBow · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Yeah. I use Project64 and use this N64 controller adapter that I just plug in the controller to. It works great!

u/honsense · 3 pointsr/gaming

Also, if he prefers real N64 controllers, I've got 2 of these and they work perfectly for 4-player Mario Kart action.

u/shadow85 · 3 pointsr/nintendo
I have 2 of these. They have 2 controller ports each so I can have up to 4 players. Works awesome and is reasonably priced.

u/sociopathic_hacker · 3 pointsr/gaming

id rather use the real thing with a usb convertion thing like this and then you can do the game cube thumb stick modification
