Mad Catz or Mad Tw*ts?

It's February. Can only mean one thing. STREET FIGHTER!! It's back and it'll kick your ass and your Ma along with it. I said last year it was going to be a triumphant return to form for the most celebrated fist fest ever.. Oh, you mocked. The doubters sprung from the woodwork and spread the seeds of doubt but the hype is now fever pitch. The office is chocka with SF vets discussing the merits of the various additions to the game such as why is Rufus so fast for a fat bloke and whether a joystick player is superior to a pad fiend. Almost everyone agrees that you will have to invest in a Mad Catz stick/pad to play at your best. You can't get squat from a 360 pad as anyone who has played HD Remix will testify. Of course it would help if Mad Catz had actually made enough to go round as you can't GET ONE FOR SHIT anywhere!!! Even the sucky Chun Li pad is sold out. Seriously, what bright spark decided on manufacture next to nothing and then get the entire internet community to rate them as essential? Okay if you're a PS3 owner perhaps as the pad is a little more robust for SF but for 360? Pfff...

Glad someone else is sharing my pain. I preordered my Mad Catz pad on the 2nd Feb and didn't get one on the 20th! They must have made about 10 of them.

Ironically I prefer the 360 pad anyway. Go figure!

Honestly? I can't stand it. The analogue stick is too wobbly and loose and the d-pad is positioned in such a way that I can't pull off moves properly, and it makes my hand cramp up after about five minutes play.

I'm such a pussy.
