    Re-live 1993 With ThinkGeek’s New Super Famicom-Inspired Wii Controller

    A Wiimote turned on its side makes for a perfectly serviceable controller when plowing through retro games from the Wii Shop Channel, and the Classic Controller isn’t bad either, but I wouldn’t call either of them an ideal solution.
