For this area of the site, I will be reviewing controllers that I can get my hands on or have gotten my hands on. This is definitely going to be a challenge, because there are just so many out there! So given that, you may be wondering, “How is he going to review them, and where is he going to base those reviews?”
Well, to answer that question, I say the following:
What are the others saying?
With the increasing number of controllers that area created in both the original manufacturer’s realm or the Razers and MadCatzes of the world (not to mention the distribution channels and limitations by area or continent), getting to all of these would be like walking through quicksand without a lifeline at the end – it’s doable, but there needs to be something to help you get through it.
Fortunately we live in a world where unboxing and product reviews are commonplace, and so I will often look to product reviews of others not to emulate them, but to understand their thoughts with a grain of salt, and eventually create my own thoughts that are without bias. Equal opportunity, I say!
And you can never go wrong with the Hands-On Approach.
The most obvious one is to actually get my hands on these controllers and try them out myself. In doing this, any comments or feedback that I have for each review will come straight from yours truly. I’ll talk about the feel of the product, how it differs from stock units, and the overall experience o using the product.
By these powers combined…
I will write reviews that are personal, considerate of other reviews, and more importantly, keen on the overall experience that can be had with each product. But I’m pretty sure I won’t be going into this alone..
That’s where you guys come in.
I’m sure I’m not gonna get it right the first time. I’m definitely sure that you will find something better than my most favorite peripheral at the moment. And that’s totally fine! In fact, if you do find something, let me know! I’d be happy to review those products as well.
