Summary

I personally have always struggled to find a good controller for the Nintendo Switch, hell even back on the Wii and Wii U I struggled. I have big hands and all controllers have always felt weird whether it be they felt hollow, light, or clunky I just couldn’t gel. Enter the Gioteck WX4 and it is a breath of fresh air. For me, it’s not the defacto answer to all my prayers controller but it is the best controller I have used since owning a Nintendo console! It combines the best/comfortable parts of the Dualshock and Xbox controllers, the wireless means I will be more likely to actually use the Switch in the Dock. Pairing the controller was a real bitch at first but I honestly believe it was more the Switch than the controller but I got there and tried it on both PC and Switch and it is very good. The supplied cable is for charging only as it is so small it’s no good for anyone unless you like your eyes on the screen. If you are looking for a good wireless controller that has all the mod cons of vibration and motion the honestly you can’t go wrong with the Gioteck WX4 as it’s a budget price with premium features.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
