My friend bought one of these, the A and B buttons start to stick after heavy usage, and the controller feels even stranger in your hands than the normal controller in my opinion. Not too bad, but it's still disappointing compared to the classic controller.

Joystick feels quite good, but the buttons don't really have the same "click" as your used to. I'm not sure about the slow/turbo buttons, or the "clear" one. Not sure what that button's even for, ??? I didn't use any of those three when we were messing around.

Sorry I can't give you more detail, but it's pretty cheap so if it fails it might be useful to swap joystick compartments, or be used as a paperweight. :)

I agree. ha, is this a real photo? Uhmm, it's creative. "Atomic Purple Haze" :D

I love how this is so high (literally, lol) on Google images, I guess this is the true legacy of the N64!

The "Stingray 64" looks pretty cool! Might get that in the future. Also I agree with Heinrold, these reviews don't say much! lol

Too bad 2 more controllers weren't released, you'd have a perfect 30 for that wall!

But one day when I get the Hello Mac controller, that would be #30 (replacing one of the E3 controllers) and fill up every slot with a different controller.
When that wall's completed I'm almost certain it's going to become a national monument. ha. Good luck.

When we were in Florida we preferred 'Super Target'!
What a store! We loved it. :birdo:
In orlando? I'm right by there, ha.
Wal-Mart may be cheaper, buuuut as an American let me guess why you loved Target more:

-Higher caliber of physical appearances in Target. (the ladieees)
-Target doesn't have a faint smell of dog food and automotive parts.
-Target literally attacks your eyeballs with the bright red and white colors, dazing you into a state of wonder and magic.
- Lower ratio of fat/old people speeding around in carts.
- You can find an employee to help you.
- Bathrooms don't look like they've been through 'Nam.
-There's food and candy out everywhere.

Any of these feelings? ...lol

I've been lubricating my sticks with vaselin, and I was wondering if it's ok to use vaselin for that purpose, or on the contrary, the vaselin could damage the stick.

Thanks for your replies, and excuse me for my english, is not my native language.
Vaseline can gunk-up/thicken over time and may make it harder to swivel the stick around, I've heard white lithium grease or silicone spray works well with plastic ball bearings, and both of those should be available in small quantities at you local hardware store.

Welcome to the site! Hope you enjoy the forums, post your collection when you get a chance!
