If anyone remembers, Retro Fighters released a kickstarter for a modern redesigned N64 controller. Production finished and they shipped them off.

I was apparently the first to receive the controller, and decided to make a video with some gameplay and impressions. Something got messed up in the upload, and the video either lags or freezes. Watch in 1080p for best results.

I'm honestly really enjoying it! It does have some issues I didn't discover until after recording, like good luck getting your transfer pak out of the thing, after discovering it doesn't work, but my opinion stays the same. It's my new go to for N64 play.

So what do you guys think about the controller? Look like something you'd use, or is it a novelty?

Feedback on the video would be appreciated as well. I'm working on improving and becoming more consistent.

1:01: The transfer pak just doesn't seem to work
1:11: The controller did however work with the transfer pak

I'm guessing you meant Rumble Pak smile I think the main things people care about are SSB smash attacks and Zelda spin attacks, which don't work well with replacement N64 sticks. Supposedly they work on this though. I haven't got mine in yet, happy to hear you like it.

They mentioned in a Kickstarter update that the transfer pack does not work, but may be fixed in future productions. However, we did receive the controller at a deeper discount! And I, for one, probably won't use the transfer pack.

Oh, and good delivery on your video, and I liked the music.

@DefaultGen I misspoke meaning the memory pak works. I don't have a rumble pak to test apparently, as I couldn't find it anywhere!

I didn't specifically try those moves, but the stick did work really well, as opposed to some other 3rd parties with overly stiff analogs.

@thatfootballguy Thank you! The guy who created that track makes other video game lofi. Yeah, the mentioned it long after the Kickstarter ended, and after production was almost finished. That's actually what I was referencing in the video when I say I was skeptical. I'm okay with it, just sucks if this was the be all replacement for an official.
