Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

And the Emmy goes to......

    Analog triggers? Left thumbstick in a natural and ergonomic position? Again, nothing innovative, but it certainly improved control for me.

    Edit: And believe me, I hated Sony long before it was fashionable.

    Ah. I didn't have a dreamcast until a couple of years ago, so I always forget that.

    The triggers on the dreamcast controller really suck.

    That's not the point. They still did it first.

    but the fact that it sucked sort of makes it irrelevant that they did it first. Who did it first while making it a useful, natural feature is quite a bit more important.

    Sega made analog triggers a useful and natural feature. Microsoft just made them more useful and more natural (and comfortable). If we are to give MS credit for the analog triggers because they implemented them better than Sega, then that means Sony should get the credit for thumbsticks and rumble because they implemented it better than the Nintendo. (The Dual Shock was capable of everything the N64 controller did w/o the need for a clumsy 3-prong design, and w/o the need to buy extra hardware and batteries.)

    The triggers on the dreamcast controller are probably the best ever.

    Let's just skip right to the end.

    That's...exactly what happened. They got an Emmy for the DualShock, and most everyone here seems to agree with the decision. I'm not questioning the quality of the DC controller (although I hated the general shape, I too loved the analog and triggers), my only point was that who did it first rarely matters as much as who did it best. Oh, and I fucking hated the N64 controller more than any controller I've ever held before or since.

    They're getting us to talk about them. Maybe they've truly embraced the idea that no publicity is bad publicity.

    I hear their next move is to club baby seals to death until they are all extinct.

    Close, but I was thinking more like this:

    I have large hands, I can't get a DS Phat to fit comfortably in my hands most times. If I get a DS lite, it'll probably be even worse!

    I guess that explains the secret behind the $2,500 cost of the new PS3 model.

    Working up money to bail Sony execs out of prison for seal clubbing.

    I found it to be the opposite. The Phat was pretty uncomfortable for me as well, but I've had zero complaints about the Lite.

    Really?

    I also saw these little grip things that you can sort of clip or set your DS lite into.

    EBgames.com has them. They look like they might help.
