Roughly, he bought it for ~$160k with 100% financing in 2010 and it's worth ~$60k now.I never really thought about it before since DSP has so many lolcow moments.
DSP says that he can't sell the CT condo because he owes more than it's worth. How the hell can DSP possibly still be underwater on the CT condo that he's owned for nearly a decade? Has the value of the condo dropped dramatically? Did he take out a second mortgage on it?
Pro controller DPads are bad, and they still are bad. Which is sad because Nintendo has always had great DPads and this gen they come out with the Joycon non-DPad and the Pro controller Dpad which registers diagonals way too often when you just want a cardinal direction. It's not fixed in the new Pro controllers, my Smash pro controller still does it. Tetris99 actually patched in an option to make you hold Up longer to drop a piece to try to mitigate the unwanted diagonals.During his SMM2 stream he went on quite the bit about that Hori controller and how the Pro controller's D-pad is trash. Now I don't have a switch so I have no clue, but looking at the reviews for the far cheaper Hori controller I see a few people saying the d-pad is worse than the Pro's. Hori has a good reputation, but this D-pad looks suspicious (one of the features is that it can come off and you can play with the d-buttons underneath). Would love to hear from someone who has a Pro or who has this Hori pad.
DSP has so many choices and chose the stupidest one. He could have:If it’s that important to him, he should try the JoyCon in the grips, the four buttons work really well for 2D I put, and if he’s going to splurge, get one of the 8Bitdo retro style controllers and an adapter, but that’s completely unnecessary for the types of games he plays and how casual he plays.
- Looked at the reviews of the Hori controller and realized that the DPad sucked and kept using his procontroller
- If he really wanted a new controller, get a decent one like the 8bitdo ones that Trihex is testing out in his SMM2 sessions
- Use the Joycons in a grip, since he's just using the buttons on the horipad and not the dpad
- What he should have done: He already has a Pokken Tournament controller with a great DPad. Use that instead of spending more money.
