Hello all,

I'm in the market for a new switch controller (probably 3rd party to meet my budget). I heard the guys mention one on the podcast but missed it's name. What do people recommend?

Kinda depends if you're a d-pad or analog stick person. If you prefer d-pad, I would actually go for the 8BitDo M30 over their SNES-style controllers. The button layout isn't optimal for Switch but, damn, that pad is sweet.

Lots of people also swear by the Hori Pokken.

I mostly use that Mayflash adapter with my PS4 controller. I've been thinking about picking up that new 8bitdo controller though, the one with the grips.
