  1. I picked up the SteelSeries Nimbus MFi controller. It has a nice weight to it as, unlike the Rotor Riot controller, it has a battery (that will last up to 40 hours). Overall, the look and feel of it is more premium than the Rotor Riot. The triggers have less tension and the analog thumb sticks are slightly more stiff (both positives). The d-pad is the cross type (the Rotor Riot has the disc type) so I feel like I accidentally press the wrong direction less with it. The Nimbus is comfortable to hold with grips that extend down farther than an Xbox One controller (more similar to a PS4 controller). The analog thumb stick layout is in line with each other, similar to a PS4 controller. On Fortnite mobile, I prefer the Xbox One-style offset analog thumb stick layout better as the control scheme Epic created to re-map the game's actions to compensate for the lack of L3/R3 buttons sometimes requires me to move the left analog thumb stick and press down on the d-pad at the same time (which I could do with my right thumb on an offset analog thumb stick layout). The Nimbus pairs easily with an iPhone/iPad/Apple TV and auto-reconnects when you flip the on/off switch on it (I like that it has an on/off switch as my joy-cons/Switch pro controller are always turning on and wasting battery whenever any of the buttons are accidentally pressed during transport). If you have it paired to multiple devices, you will have to manually connect the Nimbus in your device's Bluetooth settings though. Unlike the Rotor Riot, you can play your iPhone/iPad while it is charging (this is a particular issue with Fortnite mobile as it drains the battery pretty quickly on my iPad Pro) . The Nimbus has a lightning port to charge it but it does not come with either a lightning cable or wall adapter. The only drawback with the Nimbus so far is that the analog thumb sticks are not clickable so it does not support any L3/R3 functionality. In that way, the Rotor Riot is more future-proof. If you want a phone mount, there are some available on Amazon for the Nimbus for around $11-12 (this comes included with the Rotor Riot). Overall, I think the Nimbus is better than the Rotor Riot in every way, except for the lack of L3/R3 functionality and phone mount. Not very many apps support L3/R3 functionality, but as that increases, the lack of support for it will become a bigger issue. I would expect SteelSeries to release an updated Nimbus with this functionality but so far, nothing has been announced. The SteelSeries Nimbus is $49.99 at Best Buy/Amazon/Apple Store.
  2. I'm sure everyone already has all the Game of Thrones seasons, but I have a digital copy code for season 5 if anyone wants it.
  3. Looks great to me. Will definitely be buying this. I didn't buy the Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee games because I prefer the main Pokémon game mechanics. I'm also glad they didn't announce that it was delayed
  4. I bought the Rotor Riot MFi controller over the weekend. It's the first MFi controller that supports clickable analog sticks (L3/R3) that Apple added support for sometime in iOS 12. It includes a detachable mount for holding your iPhone (I've read it can hold iPhones as large as the X Max). It is a wired controller that plugs into (and gets power from) the lightning port of the iPhone/iPad. The cord is about 2 feet long and the mount has little hooks to wrap the cord around (it also includes a Velcro strap to keep the cord wound up when the mount isn't attached). The controller looks like an Xbox One controller. I would say the build quality is a step lower but still acceptable. It is significantly lighter than an Xbox One controller because there are no batteries or rumble mechanisms in it. This does make the Rotor Riot controller feel top heavy when the iPhone is attached via the mount. I mainly use it with my iPad Pro so it's not an issue for me but if you're only interested in it for use with an iPhone, it may bother you. The controller links to the free Ludu Mapp app which has links to all the games on the App Store that support the Rotor Riot (and all other MFi controllers I believe). The firmware update process occurs through the Ludu Mapp as well. So far, most iOS games/apps do not support the L3/R3 buttons since they were added to the MFi spec not too long ago. Right now, I believe the only apps that support these additional buttons are apps for playing PC/console games via streaming. Fortnite mobile recently added controller support and a "Limited" controller scheme that makes the game playable without L3/R3 support (sprint is set to auto-run and crouch is set to a d-pad direction) for the more popular MFi controllers without L3/R3 support like the SteelSeries Nimbus. Mark Rein, the VP/co-founder of Epic Games tweeted this out though: In case you were wondering, starting a match in Fortnite with the controller attached will place you into a lobby with other controller players on consoles, not in the mobile/touch lobby. You also cannot start a match with the controller disconnected and try to reconnect and play with a controller after you are put into a match with mobile/touch users. With the recent additions of 60FPS, controller support, career/stats, Fortnite mobile has caught up to and surpassed the Switch for a portable way to play Fortnite. The Rotor Riot is $49.99 at Best Buy/Amazon.
  5. Having never had a Wii U (or even played one), I have never played Super Mario Maker but I'm very much looking forward to trying out Super Mario Maker 2 on the Switch. The lack of online access to user-created levels kept me from picking up the 3DS version of Super Mario Maker.
  6. Tetris 99 is really fun. It's basically a battle royale but instead of eliminating players via first/third person shooting of various weapons, it's Tetris. ūüėā
  7. The Arcade1up Deluxe Edition is available at Target for $299 (regularly $399). It has a dial and trackball. It comes with the following games: Asteroids Major Havoc Lunar Lander Tempest Gravitar Asteroids Deluxe Centipede Missile Command Crystal Castles Millipede Liberator Quantum https://www.target.com/p/arcade1up-deluxe-edition-at-home-arcade-game/-/A-54281465?clkid=7a3aeb54N12ab11e98ccb0236c10c7d28&lnm=81938&afid=Axel Ltd Co (dba MobileNations)&ref=tgt_adv_xasd0002
  8. Sorry to hear that. I know it's pretty much impossible for devices as thin as the Surface Pro lineups but I really miss the days of user-replaceable batteries.
  9. I'm sorry, I just now saw this. I will work on taking photos of the codes.
  10. SNES games are a welcome addition to the Nintendo Online library, even if 13 of them are already available via the SNES Classic.
  11. If you or anyone you know plays Pokémon Trading Card Online game, I have 148 online bonus cards (with a code to enter online) that came with the physical booster pack of Pokémon cards. My kids used to be into Pokémon cards so I have a bunch of these bonus cards. It looks like, depending on what booster pack the bonus card came from, the online bonus is different (some say get 1 promo card, others say get 1 online booster pack of 10 cards). Anyway, if you want them, let me know and I'll send you photos of the codes (free, of course). NOTE: I have never played the Pokémon Trading Card Online game so I don't know if the game still supports these bonus card codes or how they exactly work.
  12. That video was extremely helpful, thanks for posting it. Like ChrisBardon, I just got Super Smash Bros Ultimate and I don't have any previous Super Smash Bros experience so I find myself button-mashing a lot with little idea of what's going on, what I'm supposed to be doing, etc.
