What is Your Controller Preference?

Postby McMurphy » Sun Nov 30, 2014 3:14 pm

Like MK8, Smash Bros on the Wii U offers several different controller options to use while playing off and online.

Which control option have you been using most often?

I am curious about this question because I haven't settled on a controller yet, trying out a different one pretty much every time I sit down to play. Any help would be appreciated.

Hmmm. I don't know enough to vote yet. I've only played with the gamepad and U pro so far. If i stick with either of these, one thing's for sure is i'll be doing custom control schemes as some of the defaults are driving me nuts. Great that they have this feature since I'm so picky

Murph I use the Wiimote and chuck... Probably one of the only smashers out there who does so! I got a wicked custom setup I use that I also posted in another part of the forum. I highly recomend you try it out and customize your controls as you see fit. It is a fun way to play!

Up - quick smash
left - quick smash
right - quick smash
down - attack
A - jump
B - special
Z - grab
C - block

TRY THIS ON FOR SIZE! oh and I always take off the tap up jump option.

I got a WII U Pro Controller specially for Smash. I think I could never bring myself to play with the Wiimote neither the Wii U Gamepad. Plus it was an excuse to use it on other games.
At first I was thinking of the Gamecube controller, but then checking the price and the adapter (the controller seems to be exactly same item ID as the old gamecube remote) I decided not to grab it, specially since the adapter eats the two available USB ports.

Your console should have 4 USB slots, 2 on front and another 2 in rear. It's also believed(although i've not talked to anyone with it to confirm) that one of the 2 USBs this adapter requires is merely to power the adapter. If true, that particular USB would just need to plug in to some device or powerstrip not limited to those on the Wii U

You are correct :oops:
As a matter of fact I had no idea I could open that slot up front and get access to the other two ports and a SD card :roll: Shows how much love I've given to the Wii U. Have just inserted and played discs though, but it baffles me to discover this one year later.

I have the adapter, I only need to use one USB port. Apparently the second plug is for the rumble function in the controllers, so it's entirely optional.

Having played Brawl with the same silver Gamecube controller I'm currently using, I voted just for that. ;)
