Lookie what I found today.
After a month spent upset that I thought it was lost in the move from Germany, I finally found my Wavebird. The movers put a lot of boxes in the wrong rooms and the one this was in ended up in a closet in another room where it sat for a month.
The GameCube had one of my favorite controllers ever made and the Wavebird only made it better seeing as it was wireless (pretty big deal for its time), sturdy, and lasted eons on two AA batteries. Not to mention it was ridiculously comfortable. It just felt right in the hands, almost like people were born to hold these things.
