TAC 2 - very short impression here:  http://forums.atari....ion/#entry25532

You should post your joystick reviews in that thread too.

 

By the way, I think I have an extra Slik Stik if you ever want to trade.  Slik Stick and the Kraft joystick are my favorites.

Standard issue 2600 joystick for me.  I have Power Sticks for my TI though and they are very comfortable controllers.  You wouldn't think so considering how they are made.

Haha! The 7800 got me again!! I couldn't believe how bad I was doing on this. Just put in Frogger and realized I was on the "A" setting. Just hit 4,711. Now I'm ready to play!

I'm tellin' ya....keep a copy of Space Invaders handy.  That one makes it easy to tell if you're on A or B.  Fat ship = A, skinny ship = B.

I keep hearing great things about the Slik Stik. Should I invest in one Rick? I've always just used the regular 2600 controller.

I think you need to get one in your hands before you decide.  If you have giant hands, you'll hate it.  Plus the button is too small.  But it's got really tight control.  Just twitch to move.  I love it.  For games that need precision, it's awesome.

I used a Coleco Gemini Dual Command, Atari CX-40 (Gray XE version), the 7800 gamepad and my homemade sticks during this round. Oddly, I did best with the CX-40. It was purchased NOS from B&C Computervisions and is still quite stiff.
