That's why you get a n3ds so you can just swap plates...no worries about the exterior getting messed up
Except I have big hands and it physically hurts to hold a regular 3DS/N3DS...

The only time I slum it with a stock controller is when I'm eating and playing games at the same time. I don't want potato chip grease on my $150 controller.
You make a great point about the brain not cooperating though. You have to muscle through it until it becomes second nature. The way I think about it is that there is no doubt that it's better to use the bumpers if (a) it means you don't have to move off the control stick or another button; and (b) it doesn't interfere with the gameplay. Sometimes there is a fine line. Example: In the games where you run by pushing in a thumbstick, I found that, initially, I would inadvertently click a bumper button while running. After a while that tendency went away with better finger placement. Anyway, if you realize that you're better off with them, but you're just not used to them, resist the urge to stop using them. You'll get it. Heck, I go back to Atari 2600--one button!
Having said all that, even if you remove the bumpers and use the stock thumbsticks, the controller is still worth $150. I promise.
I am only using 3 paddles. I was using all 4 but I kept pushing P4 accidentally and I wasn't able to hold the controller comfortably. I feel that I am able to play better using 3 since I have a better grip. I tried using different thumbsticks and different combinations of thumbsticks but I am going to stick with the default short ones, those seem to work best for me. I feel like the taller thumbsticks are too heavy and when I try to move them just a bit to one side it's too easy to over do it.

Holy !!! I had no idea these Funko figures were so popular. My sister's bought me one for my birthday every year for the past three years and they've all wound up in the closet because they're bulky and too cheap looking for me to want to display even among my other figures. It also doesn't help that they're all just palette swaps of each other... Decided to look them up because of the thread and found the Ace Ventura one she gave me is averaging between $80-$100 now!?
People go fucking crazy for the exclusives they sell at Comic-Con. The lines to get these are insane, REALLY FUCKING INSANE! Funko also sucks at organizing the lines so it's a mess.

Went to BB since I wanted to pick up a Moto E and Kindle. Got there 1.5 hours after opening and had no issues. Went to Target, Frys and Walmart just to see if I saw anything but nothing. We complain about these sales but people buy A LOT of stuff that isn't on sale. People at Target were going crazy for full price BLOPS III. They were bringing boxes out! I think people just want to be part of Black Friday and buy things just because.

Installing the game as I type...
Man, you KNOW you're excited when you're willing to set foot in a Wal-Mart to play this game sooner rather than wait 10 hours
Yup. Only go to Wal-Mart when it's a life or death situation and I always feel the need to take a shower as soon as I leave. Played the game for about 3 hours and I forgot how easy it is to get sidetracked in Fallout. I want to go into every room of every building and search every single box, cabinet, safe, fridge etc!!

You can always lock in the $40 TIV online. If the TIV drops between now and when you're done playing BLOPS 3 (the game has to be received within 14 days of initiating the trade-in, so I suggest mailing it no later than 7 days from when you lock in the trade), you'll miss out on the 10% GCU bonus and myBBY points, but at least you'll get the $40 for it.
I've seen some oddities before (midday, etc.), but values typically change Sunday before store opening and Tuesday before store opening. If the value holds tomorrow, you can probably expect it to stay at $40 for the remainder of the week. Like I said though, anything can happen.
Went and got my $44. Fallout 4 comes out tomorrow and I have Halo 5, I haven't played a COD campaign since MW2. I am never going to play this campaign either so I just wanted to trade it in before it tanked.

I can't have the lower left paddle on, I apparently grip with my left way to tight and my brain wasnt a fan of having two paddles. I have one top on the left and two on the right. In Halo I have Fish Sticks on so Sprint is left thumbstick, melee is right and then boost is left bumper. Then on the left paddle I have it jump, top right is reload and then bottom right is crouch/slide. I have the same set up for Destiny and Call of Duty basically as well.
Tried using my controller without P4 today and the controller is more conformable to hold. I think being able to hold it more comfortably is worth losing one paddle but I need to figure out which 3 buttons I want to map to the remaining 3 paddles.

Wait so the free controller is it the older controller or the new controller that doesn't need the headset adapter?
I got the new one. I am assuming most of the old controllers should have been sent back to MS or are they still selling them?
Man I I knew I shouldn't have read this thread lol. Ive got a launch xbone and am now thinking about trading it in for the elite console. To get the $250 trade in do I have to trade in my kinect also? Thanks in advance
No Kinect needed, just the console, power cable, HDMI and controller.
Also, just making sure that the elite console is the only one that has the hybrid ssd drive?
For now. When the 250GB HD came out the only way to get it was with the MW2 console (I think) and then they started selling it separately and including it in other bundles.

Thank you... someone above said not to restore it to factory settings as it takes longer. Just want to get in and out as easy as possible...
Do it at the store after the test the console. I did it before I went to the store and they had to go through the whole set-up process before they could test it and it took a long time for them to do it.
