    - trade in damaged controller to GameStop. They will give you credit , I believe $17
    - buy new controller with credit
    - buy 1-year warranty with said controller (they will put a warranty sticker on the box. Make sure you KEEP THE BOX)
    - Before the 1-year warranty is up, return the controller back to GameStop (with the warranty sticker on the box) and claim it stopped working.
    - They’ll replace it for free, buy a new warranty and repeat.

    So goods and bads... all the steps worked well, everything went fine up to replacing the actual component. You have to pry open two sides of the stick module and replace the plastic and metal component inside of it.
    Worked great on the second of the two, but the first one I must have done something wrong because once I installed it the stick refused to move right. The other three directions of motion were fine, but moving it right caused it to hang up on something. Eventually all the back and forth with one of the pieces caused it to break the solder and I don't do soldering so that one is borked.
    The bright side of that is I learned a lot and will probably try on my other severely drifting controller to see if I can do it better.
    And the other upside is that I took the good battery out of the now-unusable controller and replaced the bad battery in the non-drifting controller we've been using while plugged in, so I now have one fully working controller!

    Thank you and fuck you Sony.

    Here are all the resources I used for this if anyone is interested:

    The stick drift really is abysmal.

    Harry looks like he's 16. They completely changed the way MJ looks.

    And they basically confirmed who Venom is going to be. Not like the first game didn't already hint at it anyway but this more or less confirmed it.

    Story looks good but I’m not sure I will dedicate time to gameplay so similar to all the Arkham games and the previous 2 spider man games. Gaming is so limited now.

    I’m the same way now with not having much time to game. It’s why I stick to games like God of War that I can pause and not live online games anymore. This will probably be the next new game I get though just because of that aspect and it looks great. I’ll grab Harry Potter when it goes on sale though because my wife will let me play it in front of the kiddo.

    Just finished the 3rd Tomb Raider. Those were fun. Enjoyed the stories.

    Now what to play?

    I downloaded Thief. If that’s like the old PC game I think I should enjoy it.

    You've played the Horizon games, Ghost of Tsushima, etc?
    3rd person action doesn't get much better than these (and the Uncharted series which of course you've already played).

    GoW , Ghost of Tsushima, Horizon. Those are movie quality games that you can play so the graphics are amazing if that makes sense.

    I have never played the Horizon games. It confuses me. There’s mechanical stuff and then someone is hunting? I downloaded one of them but never played it.

    GoT was awesome.

    The whole premise of Horizon is figuring why the hell there’s mechanical megafauna in a society of primitive tribes who use bow and arrows. They’re good games.

    Horizon has some of the best storylines/lore I've seen in video games. And they're gorgeous games that give you a lot of different options in terms of how you handle combat (arrows, traps, bombs, spears, etc.).

    I second this opinion. The lore in the Horizon series is next level. I'd love a show just focused on all of the stuff that happened before the games.

    Jax Teller i believe is the most recent of us to play the Horizon games. I think it took him about a month to complete both games once he got hooked.

    Greyhill is supposed to be horrid, IGN gave it a 3, and Travis is a pretty level-headed dude when it comes to reviews.
