I just un-boxed my Wii U and set everything up and the first thing that struck me is how awkward to hold the gamepad is. It's light, sure, but it just isn't comfortable in my hands. I don't like the ungenerous clearance of the L & R triggers. It feels as though you're not pressing anything. Then there's the other triggers, the Z ones or whatever they're called, which are placed far too low. They should have gone with a DS4 set-up for the triggers, in my opinion. Much better. Also, the controller is actually much smaller than I expected it to be so I don't really see the point of the screen. I would have sacrificed it for a touch-pad. I can live with menus if that means a much better designed controller. I really don't understand why they went with this bulky, unergonomic thing.
Anyway, I was wondering since I don't like the charging cradle whether or not there is some kind of 3rd party one that can be attached to a wall so you simply 'hang' the game-pad. Is there anything like that available? I'm running out of room LOL.
Also, this thing takes AGES to charge first time. My God. ;_; Does the charge time decrease after the initial charge?
