I’m new. I’ve always been a fan of fighting games. I’ve recently got back into them. But let me make one thing clear. I absolutelty catergorically suck at them. I don’t plan to fight other for just that reason. I just want to enjoy the newer graphics and cinematic stories where I can. I love just doing the tutorials and missions. Right now I dabble a bit on Soulcalibur VI, Guilty Gear Xrd and BlazBlue Calamity Trigger (a bit of UMvC3 and USF4 on the side).
The problem is that using an XBOX360 pad (on PC) I very, very inconsistently manage to get any input right (with the exception of maybe the forward half U motion). I’m not talking about during a fight. I talking during challenges or non-moving target, practice. So practicing stuff like combos, or doing what I want, WHEN I want to do it, becomes a huge problem.
So I thought of getting a fight stick mostly figuring that It might help me getting the motions right more often. The fight stick that I’ve been eyeing (based on what I can find in my country) is the Hori REAL ARKADE PRO 4 KAI. But it still is a big investment.
I was wondering if any newbies out there had a similar problem that was mitigated by using an arcade stick. Or in general what you guys think.
Thanks for any input!
