iBuffalo Classic USB Gamepad
I ended up purchasing this along with the Beatmania guides from the other day. I noticed this in a Softmap in Kyoto sometime last year but was hesitant to make the purchase for a few reasons. One, I had a Super Famicom that I could pull out at anytime back home. Second I just try not to emulate when possible. Third, I had never heard of the company that produced this product. Well over a year later and now that I am currently separated from my Super Famicom I was willing to grab one of these off Amazon.jp at 70% off..and I am happy to say this controller is more than worth it at retail value. This works just as you’d imagine it and doesn’t feel cheap or tacky in any way. It is responsive and works perfectly as a plug and play pad for retro games.
Now that I have this controller I will hopefully be able to start emulating a bit more and adding gifs to any Super Famicom pick ups I happen to add to my collection. I only say hopefully due to a severe lack of free time on my part as it is - so I can’t promise anything unfortunately.
More Super Famicom
Just saw the news on the new 3ds and I love it. Very impressed with the changes and updates. I don’t think I will be getting it right away (if at all) but it’s very exciting to know this exists.
I’m going to miss the circle pad pro though x.x I love goofy accessories.
