judgement Posted 2003-03-30 23:08:19 by Jim Crawford
It's true, I finally caved. I'll probably have more to say later, but for now, you'll have to settle for my complaints that these pansy-ass “dUaL sHoCk iI” controllers break if you bang them against a hard object four or five times. It's pathetic!

GameCube controllers can really take a beating. And when they break, I can often fix them without much trouble. As soon as I cracked the case on my Dual Shock 2, the innards practically exploded all over the room.

Long story short, I didn't end up making it better.

The next one should last quite a bit longer, though. See, the trick is to keep an already broken controller handy, and vent your frustrations on that one. The only problem is that passers by tend to throw out non-working electronics for me.

The X-box controllers are probably great to fix. Just open up the service hatch and start rooting around inside.

[02:00] koz: they actually have a service hatch?
[02:01] koz: that you can crawl around in?
[02:01] pf: only the console itself is big enough to fit a normal human
[02:01] koz: ah
