• Game:Press "start" to begin
  • Me:*presses x, o, triangle, square, shoulder buttons, triggers, analog sticks, nuclear weapons launch button*
  • Me:" This controller doesn't work"

the pad part of my analog stick broke off on my psp so i would play monster hunter clawing with just a plastic stick stabbing up into my thumb and u do not kno tru pain until

Adding new analog sticks to the list of “ThingsToBuy” … gahhhh gaming with long tumbnails is hard on your controller be careful how you hold your controller with thumbnails… this happened because I tend to use the analog sticks with the side of my thumbs rather than my joints… seriously be careful. If you look closely you might be able to see where the side of my thumbnail has also started wearing a spot down on the left side of the left stick… :( seriously fellow female gamers… be careful we noticed the wear appear about 2 weeks after I got my ps4 and since then it has just gotten worse. And now that I started growing my nails out again I’m just shredding it…

Sega gives Nintendo some advice on the 3DS redesign

[phone rings]

Nintendo: Hello?

Sega: It’s time we have “the talk.”

Nintendo: Who’s speaking? And what do you mean?

Sega: Sega here, your old buddy from the 90s console wars. I’ve been thinking about you.

Nintendo: I don’t need you, Sega. Go back to making horrible Sonic remakes.

Sega: I feel your pain, Nintendo. I too once had a hugely successful platform overtaken by a much nimbler opponent. The Genesis was our pride and joy, but it only had 64 colors on screen, couldn’t do hardware scaling and lacked a CD-ROM drive — the next wave in interactive entertainment. So we fixed it with the Sega CD and the 32X.

Nintendo: You killed it, you mean.

Sega: Yes. Those were dark times for the House of Alex Kidd. But we learned our lesson.

Nintendo: I didn’t have a choice. iPhones and the Android Army are destroying the industry as we know it. The 3DS was our attempt to take the spotlight away from inexpensive mobile games. We went all out. Now look at us.

Sega: Pathetic, I know. But you must resist the urge to “fix” the 3DS. Just look at that NeoGAF thread. You’re getting killed out there. And this is just the beginning.

Nintendo: So you want us to do nothing?? We can’t let the DS franchise die like your ill-timed Dreamcast. The DS kept us alive through the Gamecube Era. It deserves better.

Sega: You need a proper follow-up. If we waited a couple years in 1992, then launched a Sega Neptune with a CD drive and built-in 32X tech, things would be different. Our customers would love us still. Instead, we launched expensive add-ons and killed them almost as fast as your 3DS price drop.

Nintendo: Screw it. The “hardcore gamers” asked for dual analog sticks: they got it. They made us do it. They will have to live with it whether they like it or not.

Sega: This is suicide! Think of Yoshi and Princess Peach. Think of Kid Icarus, for Pong’s sake!

Nintendo: We’ll die honorably. Goodbye, dear friend. I’ll see you in the Great BIOS in the sky.

Dualshock 4 - Replacing Parts / Repair

Like many others, my Dualshock 4’s analog sticks wore out just a few months after purchase. After searching for solutions, I decided to replace them with the analog sticks from the Xbox One controller. I found a 4-pack of them on Amazon for $12.59.

Above is a picture of the original sticks, and below is a picture of the replacement Xbox One sticks.

If you’re interested, read more to learn how to replace them yourself.
