Daily Joystick: From D-pad to stick

My first arcade fighting stick, and not a bad purchase!

I was a good four or five matches into a losing streak that had come out of nowhere. What had started as a promising, early evening Street Fighter IV AE session with a C+ Ryu and 1,100 points had quickly turned into a very quick, very decisive conclusion. For nearly two rounds, I had been pummeled by an unrelenting Abel, but I don’t quit matches. I took my beating and promptly shut my 360 off. It was then that I realized that I needed to invest in an arcade stick. The D-pad days were over. (Dead or Alive 5, PC, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)
