Soapbox’s capabilities allow our individual writers and contributors to comment on hot topics and random ones they have pondered. Today, Kate is discussing Joy-Con’s joy and rediscovering her dream of Joy-Con 2.0 after a recent accident …


I will be 30 soon, so of course natural All you have to do is learn how to roller skate. It makes perfect sense. I had never skated when I was a kid, so my joints started to squeak like a grim reaper poking his head through the door. Is there anything better than putting wheels on your shoes to seduce your destiny?

Anyway, you wouldn’t be surprised to find out that I fell and hurt myself. Twice. For the first time, I wore skates (a quad on record) in a kitchen without knee pads, but suffered arrogance with a knee injury.Next time I went out and padded completely, but I fell Rear (This is said to be non-ideal, but once you start it’s hard to stop a fall) and you injured your elbow and couldn’t bend your arm the next week. And I love bending my arms! It’s one of my favorite activities!

But let me tell you. When you ruin your stupid and aged body, you feel sorry for yourself lying on the couch, but it’s still nothing better than playing a video game.Disadvantages

I have always enjoyed the chaos of Joy-Con.I’m no longer limited to a single controller — I can spread across the couch, don’t worry, tilt my arms, and as long as I’m there Vaguely Pointing at the screen, it’s all good. And nothing beats an injury. If you need to point your arm in a particular direction, that doesn’t matter. With Joy-Con coming, you don’t have to understand the strange and unpleasant position where you can hold the controller with both hands. myself, Not the other way around.

It’s hard to mention Joy-Con where the word “drift” doesn’t breathe the same, but I’m currently in the third pair. I haven’t counted the Pro controllers I bought so that I could play the game without worrying about the control stick. Betray me

My oldest Joy-Con pair was drifting sideways, so I tried to clean it with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab without removing it, but only changed the direction of the drift to “up”. My second oldest pair wants to get involved in the fun, but they do exactly the same thing.My new pair is ok for now, and I’m taking the extra addition Take care of them to keep it as long as possible, but I have to be honest: I’m a dusty gal, and it’s time for my dust to get in there and ruin things Is the problem.

I don’t I want Forced to return to the imprisoned prison of the all-in-one controller. I just want to make Joy-Con better.

The problem is that once transformed into Joy-Con’s vast joy, it’s hard to undo. I feel like a hedonist Roman, I like to relax across the couch and lazyly press the buttons. I like to know that I can play games even when my arms are slinging. I also like being able to put my hands and wrists in a relatively ergonomic position as the tendinitis recurs.I don’t I want Forced to return to the imprisoned prison of the all-in-one controller. I just want to make Joy-Con better.

The Switch OLED model hasn’t actually upgraded Joy-Con, so how long do we have to wait until that happens?

Other gaming companies have made significant advances in accessibility, including: Xbox Adaptive Controller Customizable Elite controller, And Sony New PS5 controller Includes tactile and audio feedback for people with low vision or hearing loss.

Nintendo, on the other hand, has historically fallen behind in accessibility features (as AbleGamers’ detailed accessibility review of the Switch), and Joy-Con has mistakenly made several mistakes, including the ability to keep them far away. Aside from older configurations that may have helped. Also, these TEENY TINY buttons are quite unsuitable and require fine motor control when removing the buttons from the switch in the first place.

We know that Nintendo Switch and games in general haven’t delved into the lack of accessibility options at all. Adjusting the text size is my particular bugbear, but don’t be afraid. I will continue to hit the accessibility drums. As far as I can, and this Soapbox is certainly not my last word on this issue.

For now, leave this as it is. I would like to see more controllers that can split hands like Joy-Con. Most accessibility controllers are huge blocks with large buttons, like the Hori Flex, but some have buttons. Our own Alex will demonstrate with his lovely feet). After all, disabilities are as widespread as Smash Bros. characters, and not everyone receives the same type of accessibility service.

But as we all grow older, it’s much more likely that we’ll need these accessibility services. Continued roller skating will increase the number of days of injury-related illness.
