I’m looking for the best alternative to a Nintendo Wavebird for my Wii, as they are pretty costly for a used item. I already have Classic controllers which I use for Brawl, but I would like a good Gamecube wireless controller for Gamecube games and since Metal Slug Anthology for some reason does not let you use the Classic. My girlfriend also hates the Classic heh.
I would like something relatively cheap ($20-30 range brand-new) and readily available. Of course it should also be a good all-around controller. The only controllers I have seen that fit the cheap and available standards are the MadCatz MicroCon, Phantiq Shockwave, and Thrustmaster T-Wireless controllers.
I will never buy another MadCatz product so that is out of the question. The Thrustmaster has overall good reviews but also some pretty bad ones as well, and I can’t find any reviews of the Shockwave.
Anyone have any of these and can give me some info or advice? I’ve Googled for awhile and can’t come to a good solution. Yes I expect to hear “Just spend the extra money and get a Wavebird,” but I really can’t spend over $60 for a used controller.
