    I know what you mean Drac - I'm still sitting on the fence at the moment. I was more of a MK guy when SF2 was out (in some circles, admitting that now brings a lot of laughter and rubbishing) and even now haven't really warmed to the characters or bothered learning many of the moves.

    There were a few fighters I loved on the C64 - the International Karate series especially. I discovered The Last Blade a few years ago which I thoroughly recommend for anyone who doesn't find the SF series that captivating.

    If I got SF4 now I would also need to build a proper stick for it since the PC in my cab won't run it. I'm thinking of buying another Sanwa + buttons, and harvesting the USB running gear out of one of these $10 fellows... but doing the enclosure will be a pain.

    I remember buying something like that (just with half the number of buttons) to play Tekken back on the PS (before the advent of 1, One, 2 or 3).

    wondered if anyone else has an opinion as to whether to get this.

    atm I am playing the original SF2 on my psp (part of one of the Capcom Classics collections), so am interested in whether this is any good. I also have MK on my psp, but never played it so much. Gotta love these old arcade collections for the psp though - SF2, galaga, pacman, dig dug, galaxians, xevious, 1942, gauntlet, aaahhh the 80's!!!!

    In the past 10 or 15 years I have loved Tekken 2/4/5/Dark Resurrection and Virtua Fighter 2/3/4 much more than I ever loved SF2, although I played SF2 to death when it came out in the arcades and on my amiga.

    So, how does SF4 compare to the most recent VF and Tekken?

    As you are with Tekken and VF pleb, I am with the SF series. I just have so many memories of playing street fighter from when it first came out in the arcade to playing it on my SNES back in the day. We spent endless afternoons at friends houses going SF hard for hours on end. The term rage quit wasn't commonly used back then, but a controller thrown across the room after a loss was a daily ritual. Just before you kicked the crap out of someone who was helpless with stars in there eyes, you would just look at your mate in the eyes (away from the screen) and ask them to press the R1 button for you to kick themselves in the head and put them out of their misery. Ahhhh goodtimes :bigsmile:

    I have similar feelings about the command "up-punch" in VF4 when my opponent is on the ground with only a little health left - I input the command and drop the controller, dancing around the room as the move is executed.

    In two words..... SH!T HOT!
    This thing is bloody awesome! :bighappy:
    There are two inputs. The trackball which is a just a cool mouse to zoom around everywhere and the joystick part is recognized as another keyboard. So there are no drivers because it's just configured like a keyboard. eg. button 1 = alt, button 2 = letter R.. and so on. Now if this isn't the closest thing to the arcade I'm not sure what is. Had a crack at some SF4 today and started kicking some aSS. bout time ;).

    Good times :D

    Well, resistance did prove futile... Couldn't afford the full Tankstick but picked up the Dual stick for $220... Got sick of sore thumbs from using a dualshock
