Your D-pad would need to beat Shen Long to stand a chance against me!
I'm as big a fan of Street Fighter as any video game addict that hit puberty in the mid-90's. I was never, and still am not, great (or even good) at any of the near 40 versions of Street Fighter that have come out since the original. But that never discouraged me from buying nearly every iteration for the home console and enjoying them for at least a few hours. So when the new HD remixed version of SFII became available for the 360, I was extremely excited!
That was until I downloaded the demo and played against a non-existent player 2. It's a good thing my couch cushion was holding the second controller because I think that was the only opponent I could beat. I could barely pull off a successful fireball using the 360 d-pad and was unable to pull off a dragon punch despite 5 minutes of trying. This was heartbreaking.
My history with fighters has been exclusively with a controller and directional pad. I never really learned or cared to perfect fighting games with a joystick and I'm not going to start now. When I would play at cabinets in movie theaters I would either get my ass kicked in the game or my ass kicked in real life because I was apparently throwing elbows that would make Dennis Rodman cower in fear. So, it looks like I will skip over SFII for the 360 because the controller is absolutely miserable.
But, it has made me wonder how other d-pad world warriors are making due with the 360 version. How do you guys play your Street Fighter and how are you making out with mushy 360 d-pad?
L4D Update: After listening to another slew of podcasts with people gushing all over the game on my trip home from thanksgiving, I decided to buy the game from newegg for $45. Its at least less than retail!
