This is really due to smash bros comming round the corner, I only have 3 GC pads (i have another but it's third party and the WIi apparently can't detect third party GC pads). So after a new controller for the Wii.
The obvious option is to get a new GC pad, especially as my old GC pads are starting to have problems with the A button feeling more "squishy" then it used to. However there are a number of third party controllers also released which are compatible with the Wii.
I know there's some classic controller third party remakes which are more like GC controllers, but these won't work "as" GC controllers, only classic controllers and hence won't work with some games on the Wi or backward compatible GC games (I'm loving metal slug and Viewtiful Joe at the moment).
A third party GC controller for the Wii though would work very well as it could be used for smash bros, metal slug, most virtual console games, and obviously GC games I put in the Wii, basically everything, but I don't think any are available :(
If anyone has any ideas for third party controllers it'd be much appreciated!
