Amazon Fire Game Controller back in stock after being backordered for months

The Amazon Fire Game Controller for the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick is finally back in stock after being backordered for several months. If you’ve been putting off buying one or kicking yourself every time a game deal or hot new game requires the controller, now’s the time to grab one before it sells out again. While it may be priced higher than third-party controllers, having full compatibility with every Fire TV title is worth the extra cost in my opinion. The game controller currently includes two free Fire TV games, Luftrausers and Sev Zero, which together are worth $16.99 and have never been on sale. The free game offer is good through April 23rd, but don’t expect the game controller to be in stock that long.

Hotline Miami released for the Amazon Fire TV

Hotline Miami is a 2D top-down violent action game that was originally released for Windows in 2012. Since then the game has made its way to the Playstation and now has been released for the Amazon Fire TV. Calling this game brutally violent is an understatement. It’s exactly the type of game you’d see parents groups get outraged by a few decades ago. That’s not to say this game is all guts and no glory. It has received rave reviews from top gaming publications like Eurogamer, IGN, and Polygon. Make no mistake, aggressive and violent killing is the core of this game, but you’ll have a great time doing it. The game is only compatible with the Fire TV and requires a game controller to play.

What to do if the Amazon Fire TV only sees a small portion of a USB drive

If the Amazon Fire TV is only seeing 197MB or other small amount of a larger connected USB drive, it’s likely because the USB drive has a hidden partition. You may think the USB drive has only one partition, but it likely has a second hidden partition if the Fire TV is only seeing it as a small drive with less than a gigabyte of space. The most common way to end up with a hidden partition, like an EFI system partition, is by using the drive to install an operating system like Windows. Since the Fire TV mounts the first partition it detects, it’s mounting the small hidden partition and ignoring the rest of the USB drive. To fix this, all you need to do is delete the hidden partition. To do so, simply follow this guide.

Spend your “No-Rush” Amazon credit before it expires tomorrow

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you’re probably familiar with Amazon’s “No-Rush shipping” credit. It’s the promotion which earns you credit for selecting a slower shipping method instead of Prime’s free 2-day shipping option. If you earned no-rush shipping credit between November 2014 and February 2015, then you probably have credit that is about to expire tomorrow. This credit can be used to purchase eBooks, MP3’s, TV Shows, and Movies. You can check your available balance from this page but unfortunate there is no indication of when the credit will expire. You’re best way of figuring that out is to search your email for messages that contain “credit must be used by March 31, 2015″ and seeing how many credits you’ve earned.
