Nintendo needs to fix the VC controls

#1neotimPosted 8/16/2014 7:08:48 PM
The controls need a custom option like on Wii U VC. The 3DS is just too bulky and heavy to hold to use B and A. The NES games are ok with X and A. But still a Y and B option would be nice.

I love how BitF has become the xkcd of Nintendo, hahaha.

I position my thumb between the A and B buttons where it is easy to press either or both of them with the tip of the finger. The face buttons' layout is too small to use the Y and B buttons with the tip and joint of the thumb, respectively.

So, yeah, A/B is better than Y/B IMO.

Hahaha, that comic is perfect.
I've gotten used to it by rotating my hand a bit to the right, so it creates that angle over B and A, but it's still not very comfortable. We really need configurable buttons for these VC games.

I can play mega man with A+B using only the thumb, but I'm sure that I would prefer having it on Y+B.

Have fun with whatever you like instead of telling people that they are having fun the wrong way.

I had to switch to using X and A :/

The fact that this is even an option is a very good thing, and makes me consider getting those MM games more.

It really is annoying to not have the y/b setup for some games. The custom control options for the Wii U VC are so awesome. Tweaking Megaman Battle Network was awesome. Made R2 and L2 the same as R1 and L1 (or whatever they are called) then made the x button the start menu and y button the tip button. So nice.

It's do-able and works okay enough to beat MM games but it takes some time to get used to it and it's far from ideal.
