Exactly it's not a cheap crappy controller. It's actually really nice. I got it on release date and played so much Zelda and have only charged it two times since I got it. It's incredible how long it lasts. And I think it's fair to say has more tech in it then a DS4 or Xbox one controller. I'm always charging my DS4.

Definitely in for Neo Turf Masters. As much as I love the Fatal Fury series, I think it's probably a better idea to wait for a possible Fatal Fury Special release (ahh who am I kidding. I'll buy this one too).

Also I'd be down with a specific topic for these games.

I could see some retailers putting out a Zelda bundle in the fall. But yeah, not any official bundle.

The Best Buy I bought Zelda at on launch day after getting the console at Fry's on a whim (they had a bunch of consoles left, but sold out of Zelda) had a TON of copies of Zelda in the cage, but had sold all their consoles during the midnight opening.

So if retailers have a lot of Zelda stock, I could see them tossing in Zelda in a weekly sale for the holidays as a loss leader to get people to come in and buy the console there and hopefully grab accessories, more games and other items while there.

@1:56 in the video, GameStop is putting together a Zelda bundle.

The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying 7 and 3... and in binary 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001.

Im not talking about those bullshit bundles Gamestop tries to force on you where you pay for everything included at no discount. Im talking about a 299.99 sku WITH a game included.
Why would anyone eat a 3 Musketeers bar? Milky Way is the exact same thing, only with caramel and everything is better with caramel!

I'm surprised there are lots of people stupid enough to buy the Gamestop bundles.

You weren't specific enough in your other post.

Nintendo have fixed the left JoyCon issue. It's hardware so you need yo send your controller in if you're affected.

turns out it needed a tiny bit of foam sheidling added! Apparently new stock has already been fixed at the source.

So how exactly do peoples legs and their back factor into this since it's interference inside the controller? Will those still be a factor?

question is were they a factor to begin with or just an excuse?

Once more people start to get this fix they can fund out. But I bet they were never an issue. It's strange though because I've never had an issue and I've used the JoyCon grip a lot lately

I'm ivevempressed by the battery on them though. I've only had a low battery once since I've had ivevempressed and that was on the right joy con.

If the two are relatively the same width, how come the Grip feels smaller?

Probably hand placement. Notice how the buttons on the right side are right above the analog stick on the Grip? They are offset to the right on the Pro. And it looks like the right analog on the Pro is much further away from the side than it is on the Grip.

I probably won't. I didn't even pick up Fallout 4 or the Skyrim Remaster. I'm just burnt on that engine and game type.

Fallout has lost its magic. I was disappointed with Fallout 4.

I'll probably pass because I already have it on PS3, PS4 and PC. I've played that game for way to many hours and still never completed the main storyline.
What, me worry?

I have Skyrim on my PS4.
No need to buy it again at a higher price. I got it for $20 during Black Friday

Nah, I got it on Xbox one around Black Friday and got bored of it in less than a week. I played the heck out of it when it was originally released but doubt I'll get many non Nintendo ports on the Switch. I may get Lego City Undercover if the load times are better than the WiiUs. I rented that game before but never bought it.
