Here’s the deal… I am a complete nub to SF4. My main problem lies within the fact that I am getting bored of the game due to playing with my xbox controller. I NEED A STICK(as I believe that is where the fun truly begins). The problem is, the internet is filled with many options and biased reviews… I figured I would come to the best of the best to ask my questions…
The internet did agree that the MadCatz TE stick is the way to go for a person like myself(new, but wanting a solid setup). Every site I go to(besides amazon, which has them for $280 = nono) is sold out, and every other stick doesn’t seem to match up!!! So my question to you is how should I go about purchasing a standard(good) setup or whether to buy a crappy setup and modify it… I am also looking for insight on buttons/sticks… I will be having the box on my lap while playing. This has become a hassle to me as I am very unclear of what everything has to offer, while associating which parts are worth the real money.
Quick background history as I’m new here: I have been a competitive FPS player most of my serious gaming life. In recent years, developers have placed more emphasis on making too much money/dumbing down FPS titles, leaving us competitive players behind. My early days of MK on Sega are what brought me to the decision to switch back to fighters(SF4 more importantly). Recently, I have been watching a lot of gameplay via justin.tv, youtube, forums, and other avenues to learn more about SF4. This title grabbed my attention because of the dedicated community and emphasis on competitive play/individual skill… I understand a game like SF4 will take an immense amount of dedication and time, but I am more than ready to take the plunge.
BTW, I play on 360. Lolz ))Not sure if this matters((
----Also, I’m sure you guys have seen this dude, but I almost dropped too much money to have one of these setups, but backed out due to my lack of knowledge(why I’m here). I am not sure if the price he’s asking is worth what he has to offer… Could someone verify if what he’s asking is reasonable?? Thanks a lot.
