My First Arcade Stick


Hey guys, I recently got one of the SF Arcade Sticks (SE version)…This is my first arcade stick ever and I’m finding the transition to be a little tough (only had it a few days lol). I’m wondering should I stick with it and keep practicing? I was pretty good at SF IV with the standard controller but I thought I’d give the arcade stick a try. Also, I have Soul Calibur and Mortal Kombat vs DC and I plan on getting Tekken 6 as well so I will be playing a lot of fighting games. What’s the time frame on getting good with the arcade stick? I play maybe a couple hours a day. Thanks in advance for any input


Definitely stick with it man. It took me a good week or so to make the transition but once your on the stick and feeling comfortable you will notice a huge performance increase in execution of moves. Especially the convenience of just mashing your three punches or kicks for ultras.

Also, you may want to look at this guide here for info about your new SE stick.

Good luck dude.


Thanx for the quick response
