"So Madcatz provided me with a Soul Calibur V themed “fight stick”, and I was thrilled to get it (Read those last seven words with sarcasm). I have never been a fan of these “fight sticks” as they are labeled as. To me, they’re arcade pads and that’s what I’ll call it, now and forever. Looking it over, I was surprised how lightweight and compact it was, about seven pounds and 14 by 10 by 2.5 inches. It fit perfectly in my lap. Seeing other arcade pads that were easily two to three times the size and a lot heavier than this one, I wondered why people really bothered with those things."
