I recently played a game which plays better using a controller. I tried using keyboard for a while but I ended up needing finer direction control and thus bought this. No wireless adapter because the new one isn’t compatible with Windows 8.
It was fine and all but the cable was rather annoying.
Digging around stores and flea markets (online), I found someone selling this older adapter for cheap. It was kinda suspicious and the seller took their time until finally sending this but thankfully it works fine so far. I have it permanently connected using included extension cable because the dongle is so large it blocks the other front panel port.
With wireless adapter problem solved, there’s one last thing required to ensure most convenient usage.
The battery, of course. Rechargeable because that’s just how it should be. I considered getting a fancy charger with display and stuff but ended up only getting a basic one because I probably won’t use them all that often anyway. Got a USB one because I don’t need to worrying powering it up. It also comes with LED torch which unfortunately rather annoying to use because the power button must be held for few seconds to turn it on instead of simple press.
Maybe I’ll finally buy a proper torch or something later.
Lastly, I figured I should just stock up the batteries for other devices like remote and stuff so here they are. Bought the cheapest Japanese battery I could find.
I’m now thinking of finally getting one of those remote controlled Lego cars…
