After MvC3 came out, I’ve been taking fighting games more seriously, and I finally have enough money to throw down for an arcade stick. Well, technically it will be my second one… I found a Tekken 6 bundle with the small wireless Hori stick for like 30 bucks a couple of months back. But after trying a better stick (Qanba Q4 if I’m not mistaken), I decided to get a better one. Thing is, I’m extremely picky and I’m not too sure which to get since I can’t really try them out.
I’ve browsed the ‘Which stick should I get’ sticky hundreds of times, but I’m looking for more personal opinions and experiences to make my decision. Right now, I’m waiting for the MadCatz EVO discounts, but I’m also looking at this SCV Hori stick. I know the SCV stick has the Noir layout, but I think the Tekken stick I already own has it too, and that’s what I used to transition from pad to stick. Is the Noir layout too different from the Viewlix (experience wise)? Or are there other sticks you guys would recommend for a sort of intermediate player?
Btw, I do play on 360, but I’m going to start participating in more tournaments, so I guess a dualmod wouldn’t hurt? Unless it’s not that hard to DIY. Thanks!
