    Yeah it's great; stripping it of motion control/wireless keeps it relatively cheap too (plus it won't restrict handheld gyro stuff either since I'm sure those use the right JoyCon anyway). Hopefully it's the first of many useful alternatives.

    It's so the JoyCon can be detached from each side and offer a stick and four face buttons for two-player games on the go. And it's great for that; I use it for Mario Kart versus most lunchtimes. I don't have an issue with the dpad as it is. I'd welcome a right-hand JoyCon with two more face buttons for fighting games though.

    I hope Mallo from Pullblox makes it in so I can stick a big block on the ledge to stop folk climbing back on. Also: Dillon.

    I've not tried it but it seems like a decent enough entry level stick; especially since you can use it with several systems. Should be relatively straightforward to slot in some better buttons to improve it if you wish. I use the 8bitdo NES30 stick. It basically is that same Mayflash stick rebranded. While it is compatible with PC it doesn't have compatibility with other consoles however it does work wirelessly with Switch so you can use it to play games when the Switch is undocked. That's the main reason I bought it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B073ZNXFL6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_QuMSAbT4XFE30 Another option to consider if you already own a stick for another console is a Brook converter. You need to buy the correct one but it's cheaper than a new stick. https://www.arcadeworlduk.com/categories/brook-adapters.html I believe you can use wired sticks while Switch is undocked however you'll need a USB-C to USB Female converter and a way to plug it into the awkwardly-played underside port. Here's my NES30 (it's not quite as massive as this makes it look):

    Yeah I want to play it and I'd prefer to use gyro for aiming but I might as well just buy it for much cheaper (and with better performance) on PS4. Hopefully there will be a few other games worth picking up in the sale, though.
  7. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    Xbox One, PS4 and Steam all get a free copy of USFIV for preordering the 30th Anniversary Collection. Switch doesnt habe USFIV but it does get an exclusive mode you can play with your four Switches and 7 friends.

    Mark of the Ninja is the absolute greatest. I wasn't expecting this at all, how exciting!
  9. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    I'd rather the games be arcade-perfect ports, balance side, for the sake of preserving them. I don't think there has been an arcade perfect port of Super Street Fighter iI Turbo yet? Maybe that Dreamcast version? Anyway of those online games I don't think there's anything that's so OP it would ruin the experience at middling levels of play. O.Sagat will probably infuriate a lot of folk, though. I assume Super Turbo Akuma will be banned from online modes.
  10. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    Alpha 2 not having online is the biggest omission. It's definitely distinct from Alpha 3. I hope they fix that. Matchmaking for several games at once would be nice too, to maximise the player pool.
  11. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    I fare better using the JoyCon dpad than the DualShock 4 tbh. It's pretty great for 2D games. Unless you mean for 2player stuff; I'm useless with that analogue and wee shoulder buttons (no way I'll be able to press three for Ultras).
  12. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection - May 2018

    That's a pretty good pre-order bonus, even as someone who already owns USFIV since it might mean a wee boost for its player numbers online. Please announce an USFIV port for Switch too.
  13. Details of this year's Capcom Pro Tour premier pass have been announced: again it's a bombastic stage and a couple of costumes, this time for Sakura and Akuma. MenaRD's Birdie costume will come later. The extra fight money you can earn from owning the pass is down significantly from last year; 65k instead of 164k. Stage isnt really to my taste but maybe it looks better in motion. I was hoping for the 30th Anniversary Shibuya stage from the Arcade Edition intro. http://www.capcom.co.jp/game/content/streetfighter/info/game/3805

    You can buy the dock without the tablet already.
  15. And what a magnificent Top 8 it was. Ah!
