Now that the build is done, I wanted to put the Ashida through it's paces. I played through Eternal Darkness since prematurely putting it down years ago. The game utilizes rumble to provide hints for hidden items and it really helped out on a few occasions. Some advice to utilize the Ashida 16:9 screen: Make sure you set the game to widescreen mode in the in-game settings if available or use the force widescreen hack. (In-game circles will thank you!)

See the extra bit of skull missing from 4:3?

Update - My Indigo Ashida just hit 100 hours of use! Considering the roughly 2-hour battery life (rumble motor dependent), that's a lot of charging. I was having trouble with keeping track of where the battery was at in terms of charge until @Gman told me about the button combo to see real time battery levels (Z+Y+DU). At least I can finally say it's doubled @Wesk 's 50 hour benchmark for sound internals.

Added the battery status BTN Combo:

Final, Final update! (Hehe). @CrazyGadget graced us with a screen control board and I had to add it to my Ashida of course! On his recommendation, I wired the button combo to be L+R+Z+X+DR so it wouldn’t interfere with any in game resets. It works perfectly and now I can change my screen brightness for those late night gaming sessions! Ultimate Ashida? I think so!
