Is your Nintendo 64 controller joystick loose and worn out?  If so, you will be pleased to know that it is very easy to replace a loose joystick with either a replacement one, or a good one from a donor controller.  In total, this swap will take about 15 minutes if you're switching joysticks between two controllers, or half that if you have a replacement.

I have always used joysticks from used Grey or Atomic Purple controllers, simply because they are plentiful and cheap as most people tend to use the colored controllers more often than their "boring" brothers.  I have never used a replacement joystick, so I cannot comment on their quality.

After the swap, you will have an N64 controller with a nice tight joystick, and if you used a donor, one with a loose stick.  I will usually sell the loose controllers for what I paid for them, around $5, so that no one feels ripped off.  The buyer gets a cheap official controller, and the seller gets his money back.

Tools needed: Philips head screwdriver set

Time Required: 5-15 minutes

Difficulty: 2/10

This week's features start out with a well made game from the Nintendo Entertainment System library. Bionic Commando is a game that most NES fans have played and enjoyed. It has a neat concept where you cannot jump. Instead, you use your bionic arm (a la Inspector Gadget style) to move from platform to platform. Not only does it help you move, the arm also attacks enemies and grabs items from a distance. Overall, a great game for a cheap price.

The featured image this week is from a system that not many of us bothered with. The Nokia NGage's Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Team Stealth Action. The gun on the art is pointed right at your head, or possibly at the head of the guy standing over your left shoulder! Ack!

Our featured hardware is for the Double Player Wireless Head-to-Head System by Acclaim. What does that long title suggest? 2 wireless controllers. I know, not as exciting as the original title, but trust me, these controllers we awesome! Not very many third party controllers can stand up to the original, but these do the trick.

The featured collection is that of justabum's. He has a very impressive NES complete in box collection that looks like it's nearing completion. It must have cost a ton of money, or possibly just great trading. Send him a messege! Maybe he has something you're looking for or maybe you have something that he values.

Well, that's it for this week. It's time for me to get back to work. Until next time, keep it tuned in to channel 3 here at the wonderful, splendiferous RFG.
