Hello, first I would like to ask you not to flame me too much, I did the research and I read lots of threads about sticks, but couldn’t find an answer to my questions.
The problem is, I have never used an arcade stick before. I’m from Poland, so I couldn’t even play arcades when I was young - there was simply no such thing here, at least in my neighbour. Honestly, till yesterday I didn’t even know that such controller like an AS exist and I was playing SFIV on PC using my Logitech Chillstream.
I think I would prefer an american style stick (circle/octagon, right? anyway, this type), cause I heard that those are easier to get used to if you have never used sticks before, is that true? I am looking for something where I can “feel the click” on every of 8-ways, and basically that’s my biggest requirement. I dunno, maybe all sticks are like that, as I said never had the opportunity to use one before.
The only sticks I found in Poland:
Genius MaxFighter (looks like crap, costs something around 6.99$… and it’s PS2 only)
TRACER TRJ-200 DEFENDER (this one looks better, but couldn’t find any reviews - 30$)
Mayflash Arcade Stick Fighting (heard a lot about this one, I think I would take it - 50$ here)
I was also looking for a stick on many online shops, there is only one problem - shipping to Poland from USA, Japan or Korea costs around 60-70$ and takes 5-6 weeks…
Also I could try to build my own custom stick, but there is the same problem - lack of parts and well, lack of knowledge. If I was to do it anyway, is it really a good idea for beginner?
Also, do you know any online shops in Europe where I could buy the parts or just an arcade stick?
Thanks in advance…
Beginner wants to buy his first arcade stick, couldn’t find anything in my country, looking for some help with finding a good online shop in Europe or something like that. Thanks.
