    ok, so i just got skyward sword, and am now looking for a gold nunchuck attatchment to go with my gold wiimote..i have read that nintendo said that tehre will not be an official one available, so i guess im after a 3rd party gold nunchuck, or simply a replacement gold shell/housing for one of my current nunchucks...

    white nunchuck is fine because buttons on the wiimote are white, but it's just my opinion.

    Is that actually spraypainted? It looks like it has a lot of detail in the holes and around the joystick.

    Correct me if Im way wrong, but to me it looks like the most of the "details" is actually noise from your camera.
    Im not saying its a bad paintjob, definitely not.

    Also, you dont really paint stuff screwed together, you disassemble it and paint it piece by piece, so you can easily paint stuff as screwholes etc without risking ruining anything.

    This is just my personal opinion, but why not paint the C, Z and B buttons gold as well? :)
    A side-by-side picture with the wiimote and nunchuck would be nice though :)

    Because then they wouldn't match the HOME, POWER, +, -, 1, or 2 buttons.

    I agree, side by side with the Wii remote (not the "wiimote" :P) would be nice.

    But they are on the underside and therefore wont interfere with the buttons above. imo :)

    Oh, I think it would be better if all the buttons were gold. I wish Nintendo had done so. I'm just saying that's probably why they weren't spraypainted.

    yeah, a lot of that grain is the camera but it does actually have a glitterry/flecky look to it as well :P

    partly what joostin said about it not matching the white buttons of the wiimote but also partly because i once painted another wiimote black and having the buttons painted added just a little more friction and they felt kinda 'squishy' trying to play games :(

    Actually thats the reason I didnt buy it. I dont think it looks good with white buttons... It looks.... cheap...


    Aha, but that can be solved by removing 0.5-1mm of the plastic around the buttons. I did this on an old xbox (first one, not 360) controller, alongside with adding LEDs to the ABXY buttons :P

    I think that's a pretty good job, and I like how you left them white to go with the white Wii mote buttons too (and to stop the friction between as you said).
    I wouldn't mind trying it myself :)
    Speaking of Ryu's post, I wish the UK had better items to redeem in the shop, I find Japan and the US have a nice selection.

    EU has always gotten the short end of the stick...
    Im very surprised we got Xenoblade though, and US didnt (Although I think they will get it now, but lets see about Last Story and Pandoras Tower)

    Actually it's usually the USA that gets screwed most of the time (it's jealousy). And you are getting a translation of The Last Story.

    Wtf, you are getting BOTH? I hate NoA sooooooooooooooo much right now. It's been obvious for a long time that they could make tons of money off of these games, but they just hate fans.
