Why Did I Buy A Fight Stick?
About a week ago I bought a fight stick for my 360. It's pretty neat. It's a Madcatz Fight Stick Pro with a Street Fighter X Tekken design on it. It was a bit pricey, but I recently came into a rather sizeable chunk of money, as my roommate paid me to write his final paper for him back during finals and just gave me the money last week.
So, to try out my new fight stick, I popped in Street Fighter IV
to see what I could do. Spoiler alert: I suck. Sure everything started off great. I managed to pop a couple of achievements...
Ok, I did it the cheap way with Zangief. Still, I was surprised just how easy it was. I did it in one shot.
After this, I turned my attention to the normal trials. Big mistake. After making it through the first two tiers of Ryu's I got stuck. So, I moved on to Cammy. Again, two tiers and I got stuck. Turns out I really can't chain 3 moves together to save my life.
Yeah. I'm really bad at fighting games. Still, I'll stick it out with SFIV a bit and try to at least beat Arcade with every character.
While it's nice to boost my completion percentage slightly, I can guarantee I'll never come close to finishing this game. Oh well.
Tonight I might pop in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe
and see what I can do there. I always found the MK combo (kombo?) system to be easier to work with than the SF system. However, seeing as those ratios are so much higher than SFIV, I kind of doubt I'll get any of the character challenges done.
What's that? Just Cause 2? Right...about that...
I need a catchphrase!
