Did you guys see how the new Xbox One controller model costs $70, and it still isn't rechargeable out of the box? Now the people complaining about the Pro controller price have something else to complain about.

Techmatte sends an email directly to you after purchase. If you respond to them directly through that email with any problems, they will bend over backwards to make you happy, even if 1 protector worked fine. I had the "plop" issue (screen separated from the tabs too early, causing me to try again with the 2nd protector) and less then 3 days later, a new pack arrived in the mail, and I told them my second protector went on perfect. Not many companies would do that as long as 1 of the 2 protectors works.

 

Also, wait a day or 2 before placing it back in the dock.some have had issues with the switch heating up the adhesive, warping the view around the edges. I have not had that issue yet myself.

Yeah, after what what happened to XeroFun I'm going to wait about 24 hours before I place the tablet in the dock. Everyone should learn from what happened to him or her and not commit the same mistake.

For those that will get the amFilm glass protector in the next few days, remember Directive's tips about installing it. Going to follow them myself when I finally get the protector (which should be before the 23rd, according to Amazon).

 

 

Hi guys & gals- here's my "amFilm 2-Pack Glass Protector" review:

Pros:

1. Cheap. I purchased it for $9.99 (includes 2x protectors) & it's up @ $10.99 now. I'm fairly certain it was $8.99 at one point. I was ready to purchase a Cyber Glass item @ Playasia if these weren't decent.
2. Good quality.
3. Clear instructions & 2x pairs of prep wipes are packed in as well.

Cons:

1. 1x protector had a "toothpick" diameter impact mark on the glass.
2. While the instructions are very clear, I feel that holding the final plastic tabs on both ends (before actual contact between the screen & the glass), is a bad idea. Here's why:

The tabs weren't strong enough to hold up the glass & then suddenly plop, it dropped mal-aligned. The result was lifting the glass back up & that's a PITA. On my last image, you'll see a swarm of dust resting where I lifted.

I would suggest holding the perimeter of the glass, & after LINING up the indicators, place it down quickly. Pull the tabs thereafter.

I'm going to contact the company for a replacement & I'm positive they'll ship me a new glass.

Lastly, for some reason some of images didn't upload with the correct Rotation.

Been looking for a pro controller for a month now, I've seen it in stock at GameStop and Amazon three different times but my credit between both were in the wrong places. Finally landed a order for prime now in the morning. Can't wait Zelda to play Zelda with the pro controller.

Yo dawg, I heard you like Zelda...

Your dualshock might be defective. I've played Horizon Zero Dawn for 5 hrs straight and DS still has 2 bars of charge.

The 'used' pro controller came in from amazon warehouse deals. Was listed used like new, still factory sealed. I've heard several negative things about amazone warehousedeals, and their seller rating is pretty shit, but I figured I could always return it worst case. Came in wednesday shipped in a Fuck ing bubble mailer  :pray: fortunately the box was intact. The box was torn near the top at the hang tag about 3 inches, but everything was indeed sealed in new condition.

 

After several days with the controller I like it. It feels similar to the wiiu pro, but the dpad, triggers, and face buttons are all quite a bit larger, and feel better imo. The matte finish, and textured grips feel quite a bit nicer too. It should be obvious just from looking, but the controller is considerably more comfortable than the joycon/grip.

 

At the end of the day I'm glad I picked it up for 62 dollars. I think 77 after tax is highway robbery, and honestly not worth it. The controller has HD rumble (which hasn't impressed me thus far), and an amiibo reader, which people often point to these features as the reason behind the higher price tag. What they don't mention is the features the controller doesn't have, like a headphone jack, a touchpad, or pressure sensitive triggers. I'd honestly rather have all the features it doesn't have than to pay extra for the ones it does. 

While I understand your point, I'm okay with paying $70 for the Pro controller just because of the battery life is so good. I love the DualShock 4, but you only get about 4 hours of charge with it, and that costs $60. The Xbox One controller is also awesome, but it doesn't come with a rechargeable battery pack. You need to buy the Play and Charge kit for that, which is $15. So in other words, $75 in total for the full-featured X1 controller. When you keep both things in mind, $70 for a controller with about 40 hours of battery life is actually not a bad deal.

 

I do agree though that Nintendo fucked up with a couple of things. Not having the headphone jack on it is pretty stupid, and a glaring oversight that they carried over from the Wii U Pro controller. I don't understand why Nintendo made the same mistake twice. It's honestly bonkers. And I agree that they should have made the triggers analog. That was also a really dumb move on their part.

 

As awesome as the controller is, the controller is held back by both things. But especially by not having analog triggers. It would have been the perfect controller if it had them. I really believe it would had been the best controller available if that was the case. Now instead it's just one of the best controller options, along with the DS4 and the X1 controller. But not the best as it could have been otherwise. #Sad!

Here's some screen grabs I took of all of the traditional tunic sets you can get in Zelda!

 

Amiibo sets:

In-Game:

Also this one which though not a tunic, but still cool! (amiibo)

Damn, that

Link looks fucking badass. Can't wait to play with that tunic on.

 

The BotW one looks kinda funny, though, with the shorts under the tunic.

Finished with decorating my Master Sword display! The fake moss, fake leafs, and fake rocks were only $1/pack at Dollar Tree!

Just need to find a light to put on top. Using a cell phone with flash on to see how it looks.

Looks freaking sweet. Great job. (I was the 420th view. Ha.)

 

Btw, is that a new N64? The box looks immaculate. The Atomic Purple controller set takes me back to my childhood. 

And Dreamcast ftw.

Thought about picking up the blue pair as well. I want to use one blue and one red, and have the thumbsticks the opposite color. Could look really sweet that way.[/quote]

Thank you for the idea. Now I need screen protectors that I ordered from Amazon.attachicon.gifIMG_4388.JPG

I haven't played a game with the pro controller but I did feel all over it. Wow, it feels really great. I love the material and the handle grips. Feels REAL good.

If only your Pro controller could talk. The things it would say.  :razz:

You can tell a lot about a person if they don't tip when they're supposed to. Karma will hit you for those actions.

 

That is if the employees don't retaliate themselves. If they know you're a non-tipper, don't be surprised if they decide to do this:

I have a normal job and don't depend on tips, so no, of course I wouldn't assume that any job that is employed by non-illegals would be below minimum wage, even tipping jobs. If you're including employed illegals and sweat shops into this conversation, that's on you :)

You obviously haven't worked a job that depends on tips. You're also highly ignorant of this matter. A lot of restaurant industry jobs you get paid below minimum wage, because tips are expected. It's completely legal. Look it up.

I don't tip the mail man. I don't tip the UPS or FedEx guy. So I'm certainly not going to tip the Amazon guy just because Amazon recommends it.

 

They can't be doing this whole tip thing if they're trying to get in on the postal delivery market.

The mail man and the other guys don't use their own cars. They also earn about 18 dollars an hour. It's not an apt comparison.

I recently had my doubts about picking the Switch up at launch, but knowing I'll get to play a masterpiece has completely assuaged my fears.

About 40 hours to complete the main quest. About 100 to 100% the game.
