Glad to see that AmaCoN has a Canadian division -- or in other words, it works with Amazon.ca. I think it does. It's on the AmaCoN page and I just made a purchase.

There is apparently no Amazon Smile for Amazon.ca (which seems to be fully unlinked from the main Amazon site, the same way you can't get Amazon.jp stuff on main Amazon), but oh well.

You might be the first person to use .ca... if that's what you're telling me just happened. smile.gif

Not my fault that the book was less than CA$11 on Amazon.ca and similarly priced on Abebooks (i.e. ~US$15 including shipping), but then upwards of US$150 like everywhere else. tongue.gif

Maybe I'm dense, but something isn't very clear to me: I saved a bunch of stuffs to my list before going through AmaCon. As long as I go through one of your links before adding those items to my cart, all's good, yes?

You're not dense, Amazon makes it difficult. If you have stuff saved in a shopping list or wish list, AmaCoN should get credit as long as your cart is empty and you close all of your Amazon tabs before using an AmaCoN link to start shopping. smile.gif

Final Fantasy V by Chris Kohler

Someone wrote a book about Final Fantasy V which is about to become the first book I've ever bought for myself...weird that I've never wanted a book to read. Hm.

I'd like to get a paperback and perhaps I will at some point, but for now, I'll go with the e-book version. Money's tight, after all.

SNES controller that has no wires wow

Look, FF fandom, I don't like you, and you don't like me. I can't say for sure why it is, but I don't feel like talking about it.

Here's some money. Thanks for not SWATing me.

Oh hey, I'd actually be able to hold this from the sides, which is how I like to hold my gamepads.

(Is there a wired version of this? I actually prefer controllers that have wires...)

I do believe it comes with a charging cable, which, while very short by normal video game controller standards, can be extended with usb extension cables.

I updated the link to be properly AmaCoN, because, well, you know. smile.gif

8BDO do some very good bluetooth controllers, from my research earlier this year. In fact, I wish I'd bought this one (or the previous version of it) instead of the cheaper one I got for my Raspberry Pi, as these are much easier to get synced from what I understand. I think the higher price is probably worth it just from the frustration I had getting my cheaped-out one working.

And to GMH's question, yes, this can be used wired and it comes with a 4' cable. A USB extender should work fine with it as well, as Spooniest mentioned. I think one like https://amzn.to/2LZxhLO would be sufficient, unless the device you're trying to connect it to supports USB-C, and then you'd likely want something more like https://amzn.to/2Mj5Vx9.

Now, if they start restocking the vastly superior Super Famicom colorway on Prime...

Oopsie. You know, I may be right or I may be wrong about this, but it seems like there was a time when I would have noticed that I was supposed to do that...

Thanks for the heads up, I'll remember next time. flag-blue.gif

Edit: Got it.

No problems hooking it up, but in the middle of moving and not sure where I'll land, plus having an allergic reaction to the dust kicked up by moving all the things, so worried I will miss work. Pressure, yey, I luv it.

Time to play some FF6

Let us know whether you have an issue with one of the analog sticks getting stuck, and if so, whether the suggestion (on the Amazon page) of loosening the screws fixes it.
