    The thing is that Switch is their least gimmicky console of the last few generations. So I guess they felt like they had to go extra-gimmicky with the controllers to make things inversely proportional, lol.

    Thinking of this, imagine if it broke when using it. Your fist comes at you pretty fast and well... either a fat lips or a black eye. Ouch :unsure:.
    Or worst especially with that broken piece in your hand or fist.

    Your mom's basement.
    I too like to wrap straps around my legs and thrust upwards while sprawled on the floor.

    Or imagine taking over the controller to get little Timmy through the hard part of Link's Goofy-Ass Gimmick Training. He's standing in front of you so he can see everything. Then before you know what you've done, the damn hoop breaks and you punch your son in the back of the head full-force.

    As long they keep developing Zelda games i couldn't careless about the crap they make thinking is revolutionizing the world with. As a matter of fact i think they should be a softhouse doing games for PC or Sony.

    I got physically tired just by looking the video; not my definition of fun.

    Well, Nintendo has been letting 3rd party companies release more mature content as of recent. Maybe this is a soft-wink-launch into tapping their adult audience? :creep:

    First it was random shapes made from cardboard, then a hard rubber ring...my bet's on a floating titanium cube controller next.

    All I saw was a bunch of people having seizures. They should have at least showed us what they are were looking at.

    Jesus, with this fucking peripheral...I can only imagine the homebrew possibilities. What's next? Wrapping this thing around certain parts of my body and having the HD Rumble be active until I Believe I Can Fly after the climax?

    Fuck having the libretro core of Reicast or Flycast or FuckCast or whatever method of playing DC/NAOMI games on the Switch. This is what homebrew needs to be about, natinusala, m4xw, and bylaws! XD

    You know, if we all had not been robbed from our natural habitat we would not need stupid plastic toys to keep in shape. In fact we don't need them, we can get plenty of exorcise just in tearing down this little pre-school of ours in its self.

    Wouldn't it be cool of they invested in actual new game IP's instead of all this dumb shit?
