… but I’ve been a pad gamer since Street Fighter II on the Mega Drive. I was hoping people could give me some tips on getting used to a stick, as whenever I’ve used them at an arcade I’ve felt like my game has taken 3 steps backwards.
I bought the Street Fighter IV TE edition stick (found it cheap, only 89.99 as opposed to 149.99), so I plan to really give it a go. I’ve been playing BlazBlue and the PS3’s d-pad just isn’t cutting it any more - SFIV is easier because of the relative lack of aerial combos and 41236/63214 movements, but BlazBlue is full of them and when facing from left to right, the responsiveness just isn’t there.
Is it simply a case of practice practice practice, or is there anything else I should know?
Oh, and I hope this is in the right place, this is my first post on the forums.
