Oh I'm still enjoying it immensely, which is a testament to how good it is if you enjoy this type of gameplay. The main game hasn't been nearly as bad. It's just annoying and does tarnish it a bit.

Its uncomfortable for my meaty hands hard to hold the middle and right prong at the same time.) Gamecube controller, Xbox and Xbox 360 controller. However, I can't stand Playstation controllers.

Is there any reason for this, or does one just pick something and just like it?

I like most controllers, except for...

Xbox original controller - Too bulky and those egg shaped buttons simply hurt your fingers.
Gamecube controller - Weird button layout, and too friggin' small.

I like the playstation controller personally...


I have no problem with the original XBox controller, however the S-controller was an improvement even though I didn't hate the original XBox controller. I like the Gamecube controller, too. IMO, it's a HUGE improvement over the N64 controller, which is my most hated controller.

N64 controller is fine

Why do I imagine everyone using it by holding it in some crazy, funky way.

I find it more comfortable than both the Dreamcast controller and oXbox controller.

I've always pictured somebody holding it upside down and saying "This is dumb".

It makes me sad that I have played through "A Link to the Past" so many times that I don't enjoy it anymore.
The PSTV is amazing.

Impossible. You're obviously not "playing with power" anymore.

airflow/airmaster, I think its called.

That one is bigger than normal. Maybe you'll like it?


I bought an airflow for my gamecube back in the day and it didn't last long at all. It kept saying the controller was disconnected or it wouldn't say anything and the controller would just stop working. Bad times.

I love Fallout and going from 3 to 1 has been quite the challenge for me.

I wish there was a Final Fantasy game where you played as Gilgamesh, Bahamut, etc, and summoned humans to fight for you.

How many times do you think you played it? I can see myself playing it a second time one day but that's it. I still need to play all of the console Zeldas. I've yet to finish one but I'm about halfway through OOT. I did complete all of the handheld versions.

I just learned that there was a spin-off game to the Princess Maker series called Prince Maker. It's exactly what you think it is, and it's adorable. :D
