I was thinking about investing into a fightpad. I find myself mashing on an arcade stick vs. me not mashing on a dualshock 2 controller. Also using a xbox360 controller for SSF4AE/UMVC3 is starting to make me pretty agitated due it not blocking correctly. I'm still new to the advance scene of fighting games, but blocking on the 360 d-pad is terrible. I would like to improve my game but the curve to improve with a 360 controller is very... high. I was wondering if anyone has one and can answer a few questions.
Which brand should I look at?
Notes: All I have seen/heard about is the MadCatz ones.
Durability. Does it break easily?
Notes: I find myself mashing on an arcade stick vs. me not mashing on a dualshock 2 controller.
Is the d-pad a similar feel to the dualshock 2?
Notes: This is what I started/grew up with. And would like to continue on with it.
I use an xbox360, is there an adapter to use a dualshock 2 controller for the 360? Does it have input lag?
Notes: I also would have to buy a new dualshock 2 (if they even sell those anymore)
