I think someone already posted a similar thread about this problem, but I thought it would be nice to hear some helpful feedbacks on this.
Okay, so I'm a total complete newbie when it comes to fighting games, but I thought I give it a try and bought Guilty Gear XX Accent Core for the Wii. Since I don't own a GameCube Controller or a Fight Stick of any kind, I went for the optional controller for Wiimote and Nunchuck controller. Since I ignorantly thought that it wouldn't be that hard to excute a QTR Circle foward/Backward move since it was a joystick of some form, I found myself constantly struggling to execute it even while on Training Mode. My thumb started to cramp badly to the point I found myself frustrated and wanted to refund the game.
But, I didn't want to chicken out and I also knew that fightsticks doesn't come cheap, I perservered and practised hours on end....The result? MORE Thumb cramping...;;;; Now, I'm turning to the experts on SRK to help me with my little problem.
1. Do I have to get a fightstick for this situation? Are they mandatory?
2. If the Nunchuck controller is clunky at executing these moves, how can I improve myself on GC controller?
