Has anyone seen any of the fancy gun shells / controllers described here for sale (probably in Europe, as postage from America or Asia is expensive) recently?: http://boojakascha.ch/index.php?page=Best2Wii /

I think they might be more comfortable than pointing with a Wiimote held parallel to my arm, in the same way that dropped handlebars on bikes and ergonomic/vertical mice give you a healthier wrist position.

I know many shells exist that hold the Wiimote and have a trigger for the B button, but these wouldn't be good for games that often use more buttons e.g. A and d-pad down (Metroid Prime, Pikmin, Conduit).

Some versions have the d-pad on the back of the gun (Scorpion Vii, BigBen Walther P99, Penguin United Crossfire),

some have the nunchuk integrated so the other hand can work the hard-to-reach buttons (MadCatz Z-Chuk Blaster, Competition Pro Shooter).

Possibly the Cobalt Flux Lock n Load Rapid Shot, which has the Wiimote mounted at an angle and has a lens to redirect the IR camera's view to point forward again.

Edit: I have found some Lock n Loads on eBay from the US, but postage and import duties mean they will cost a lot for what you get. A thrift shop in Canada https://portagemcc.com/products/cobalt-flux-dark-ops-lock-n-load-wii-remote-gun-by-dark-ops won't even post to the UK, but might be of interest to people in North America. If you get one, I would be interested to know if it's any good.

    The problem I have with it is that I can't get it for that price. Shipping and handling and fees and import fees and processing fees and bullshit and it's like $300 by the time I get it.

    Amazon takes a loss on their tablets because they run Amazon's OS and is part of their ecosystem, and they know very well that it will just get rooted and hacked in Croatia and it's
    not worth the loss.

    That's why you can use firetools to whipe it and nova launcher on it or something

    I just don't get why tablets can't be affordable with higher specs like phones guess bigger screens or more expensive than the socs or something

    Anyway. There's a ton of cheap tablets with decent specs out there, and just like Amazon's tablets they're all from China.

    I was looking at digital photo frames recently and turns out it's cheaper to buy a cheap tablet and just have it show a picture than it is to buy a frame of the same size.

    Yeah but at least with fire tablets you have a better chance of suing if it blows up your dick or something
