Ps2 advice
« on: September 28, 2009, 01:14:57 PM »
I've been playing Actress Again on the PS2 and while the PS@ controller is useable I feel it would probably be better to play on an arcade stick. I was thinking of http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002B81RH4 but I'm not too sure so any suggestions would be nice.

Wow, I've never even heard of that stick.

Realistically, stay the hell away from it. The way Melty plays that stick won't last a week, but if you want something to start off with and don't have the $$$$ to blow right now, then fuck it and go for it I guess.

Depends on how badly you want to start playing on stick.

Hmmm my advice is no on that stick, but it is also hard to find a good PS2 stick these days so like what Chibi says, depends on how badly you want it.

You could do what I did and get the Mayflash stick.  Sure the stock parts are crap, but its basic shape and weight are pretty good.  The key is modding it.  Put in the proper buttons and stick and you're good to go :)  Compatible with PC, PS2, PS3 and (360 with an adaptor, apparently).

I have never seen/heard of that stick.

I would say try and go around looking for info on this and seeing what people's feedback is on it to be safe.
If you want to try out a stick with melty though, this seems like a cheap buy. (somewhat)

Looks pretty cool I mean the box shows that the ball top can BURST INTO FLAMES.

Get that thing, adapt it for ps3, pick up BB, start maining Bang and SHOW EVERYONE YOUR MANLY SPIRIT as your stick BURSTS INTO FLAMES OF SHEER AWESOME!







Nah seriously, I'd say it probably sucks.

After having owned a cheap arcade stick for some time now, I have concluded that their only real use is for modding.  Really, if you're scared of modding, just bite the bullet and pay a bit more.  Or, mod.  No one says you have to do it immediately, you can taste the annoyance of a crappy stick first (like mine; balltop tries to unscrew constantly, I'd glue it but I need to be able to get it loose when I mod it).
