Hi guys, new posting here although i have been reading for a while. I'm trying to get into fighting games more seriously and after platinuming MK vs DC on a DualShock with my thumbs being very sorry I did, I decided to pick up UMVC3. I got to where all I needed to do was the missions and started in on them with a DualShock.
As you might imagine massive frustration ensued with directional input not working very well with either the d pad or the analog stick. I noticed Amazon had a Sf x Tekken Madcatz fightstick on sale for 99 so I picked it up. The difference is flabbergasting. The fightstick made everything much easier. Anywho after all of that my question stems from threads I've read where "pad vs stick" is discussed. Are "pad" players actually using the standard console controllers or does pad refer to something else?
