Eh, I think it doesn't have the PSX version modes (since it's based on the PC version) and Ryougi's scenario for whatever reason. Main issue here is the netcode, which feels pretty similar to the original netcode...so not great, really.

I think some of the match footage there isn't actually playing at full speed. Like the color footage seems to be going a little bit slow. Not 100% sure tho, anyone have a clue?

looks like it's just the first two or three matches that are a little slow.

They're re-releasing Last Blade 2 on the PS4/Vita, which is not news. It's news however that they apparently added six extra characters(!) -- where the hell did those come from? Maybe it's just Samurai Shodown dudes thrown in for good measure?

Oh wow, I hadn't heard about the extra characters. I assume one of them is Shikyo, who was in LB1 and replaced by Mukuro in the sequel. I was also comparing the casts of the two games on Fight-a-base and it looks like the original has exclusive variants for Kagami, Akari, and Shigen. Kinda boring, but also kind of obvious and probably easy to implement. And the last 2 are probably non-awakened Kaede and Hagure who's a mirror match shapeshifter.

Could you elaborate at all? I'm interested in giving fighting games a try and was looking into this stick as it seemed like a relatively okay stick with upgrade potential should I find myself getting more serious.

Is this not the case? What would you recommend doing instead?

If you don't want to shell out $150 for a Hori Arcade you could buy a used Madcatz Fightstick Pro instead for $125 total instead. It's what I use and it works great. Its only downfall is not being future proof as it needs specific drivers to work on the PS4 which every game doesn't support, at least right away. Even on the PC this rings true as Street Fighter V didn't support it initially, though you can always just use something like Joy2Key.

Being honest unless you go on Ebay and find a gem a of a deal, you are going to be paying at least $150 for a stick. If you are in the market to spend around $100 then you're out of luck. I do know Madcatz had a $100 deal for their sticks a year or two ago (it's how I got mine) but I doubt they'll do that again this year being that the company is hurting. The good thing about buying a quality stick is that they have great resell value, which subsidizes when you buy a new stick

I was in the same boat recently and bought a Qanba Q1 for ~$120 with shipping, and later put in some silent Sanwa buttons for $20~30. Hori Arcade and the full-sized Madcatz sticks seem to be better recommended, but at the time I bought my stick there wasn't much to choose from in that price range.

Amazon probably still has wwe brawl sticks in new/like new condition for dirt cheap, if you want a starter stick get one of those and a sanwa lever instead

Just to elaborate on the madcatz alpha, it's extremely lightweight which is the opposite of what you want in a real arcade stick. Especially when first learning stick it's good to have a solid base. It's also really expensive to mod because you'd want to replace both the and buttons which will cost like 30 bucks. For $110 you can easily find a quality used stick or just pay 150 for a hori or whatever.

I keep hearing brawlsticks brought up because I guess they were really good for the cost, but I just find it really funny in my head that a niche fightstick made in a limited run for a loving wrestling game in 2011 for god knows what reason turned out to be a good enough stick that people are still recommending it. Is there anyone who buys the latest WWE game and goes, ooooh yeahhh, need a fight stick for this one? How did that happen?

I think the WWE art on it is only sliiiiightly less embarassing than an anime schoolgirl fightstick, too.

Originally they were called SEs (standard editions) and were SF4 branded. Those were also pretty hard to find and got discontinued after a year or two. The brawlstick came out a few years later, same stick but with different art.

It's a lovely stick, it's just one you could get cheaply and then replace all the parts on to make it functionally equivalent to a nicer stick.

They made waaaaay too many of the Brawl Sticks, so they were dirt cheap for a while. It's not that they were a great stick, they were just a really good stick for the $30 they cost for a while.

Thanks guys for the advice. I live in Australia so my options are a bit more limited (can't get the qanba cheap, or find many second hand sticks). It looks like I can pick up a wwe brawl stick for $50 AU however (half of the alpha) and swap out the parts for better ones.

This was my first stick and I still have it, but one of the buttons is hosed up because I used it to play a lot of Marvel 3.

I should probably pop it open and mod it actually since I now have like... 4 different sticks.

Yeah I mean that's the part that's funny to me the most. I know about SE's, I just think it's funny + weird that they made so many sticks for some wrestling game that 90% of the FGC wouldn't be interested in that they ended up becoming highly recommended just because of the surplus.

Like maybe I'm fundamentally misunderstanding the game and the customer, but in my head I just see the crossover between "likes wrestling games" and "likes fighting games/wants a fightstick" to be incredibly small. I guess if they're collector's items now then they probably made their money on em eventually, but I'd be curious about how many people bought it as an entry level fight stick for whatever and how many people bought it because "gently caress yeah wrestling games gimme an expensive wrestling themed peripheral", because I really can't imagine that second demographic existing in any quantity that would actually justify making the product.
