Wow, playing Super Nintendo Virtual Console games and fighting games is no longer a gigantic pain in the ass! Some Nintendo 64 games are still better served by the Gamecube controller, but if you like being able to run/attack AND jump at the same time then I highly recommend the Classic Controller Pro.
Don’t ask me how I beat ActRaiser with a Gamecube controller. I still don’t know.
…but shock of shocks, I broke down and bought Donkey Kong Country Returns the second I came across it. Believe me, I don’t regret this at all…the problem is that I can’t really justify another video game purchase for myself what with the holidays and all, so that means old round ears is just gonna have to wait a little while. But y’know what? That’s actually fine by me because DK has blown my fucking mind and I can’t really see myself being pulled away to play any other game for the foreseeable future anyway.
