looks yummy IMO

ive never seen anything by Nubytech before though - are they good?

when I went to their website (www.nubytech.com) , I also saw a Street Fighter II gamepad that basically
looks like a Saturn gamepad for a PS2 - there's even a nice wireless version of it

I have a set of these sticks. They've got a dual plug on the end so that they can be used for either the PS2 or Xbox, there's not seperate versions. They also come in a kickin' box and with a mammoth poster. They're pretty high quality for something out of Nuby, I can see why they got the license, but I'd recommend some MAS sticks though. Those still reign surpreme.

I have these too. They're not like the Anniversary stick in that one can be used on both the PS2 and Xbox, you have to get 'em seperately. And some of these were sold exclusively out of Blockbuster. They're also a much smoother D-pad than the Saturn pad, but I wouldn't recommend them over the stick. I can't understand why anyone interested in playing SF with a good controller wouldn't go for a stick -- there's some things that no pad, even the Saturn's, can do.

is there anywhere online they can be bought ye think?

Ive got their SCII stick btw (i didnt realise it was made by them)

I have it with XboX, PS2 and GC connections all on same wire - but tbh I cant bring myself to play the SFA Anthology
with it, because it feels way mushier r sumthin than my DC stick - does that SFII stick have that proper crisp, clicking feel
that the DC stick has? - also is it square or octagonal gate?

thanks :)

I have to agree with you there, I play my gamepad's buttons like a stick anyway - i.e. i rest it on my knee and press from above (not with my thumb in otherwards)

I basically want a pad so people cant blame the DC's shitty default D-pad when I force em to play me ;)

Because I lose when I use a stick and I win when I use a gamepad. That simple. Some things in life just don't work for everyone.

you're also probably far less likely to get repetitive strain on your right hand with a pad too...

Well, my right hand using a stick is fine, both in terms of health and gameplay effectiveness. I just can't do a damn movement using a stick, ever. Doing a damn super jump in GGX fails every 9/10 attempts. Running is the same. Don't even expect me to do a freakin' fireball. It's not happening. It makes no sense to me because a stick requires more movement than a pad does, and more movement means slower response. I'd rather move my thumb, instead of my entire arm, because my thumb is going to do the job twice as fast.


I hope none of that sounds as sexual to you all as it did to me. :oops:
