    So did anyone pick up the Madcatz TvC stick (or at least have seen/heard/read more impressions on it from beyond the SRK forums)? Does it feel like it can take the pounding that this game would give, especially on the stick with the dashes, super jump and almost non-stop qc motions. I tried a little training mode with my Hori stick and.....I'm a little nervous for it. I worry that I could actually wear it out. I can just imagine what the natural craziness of TvC would have me do to the stick and it's nowhere close to the way I play the VC Street Fighters.

    it feels really solid. Overall, I like it a lot. The only complaint I have is that it's actually too sensitive sometimes, but I figure that's just something I'll adjust too. I've read that it's pretty comparable to the SFIV stick, in case you've ever played on that board.

    It doesn't seem to work with VC games though...which is unsurprising but still disappointing

    I splurged a little and picked it up yesterday. I like it so far - it's a very sturdy arcade stick (feels much more solid then the Hori Tekken 5 stick), plus it's got an angled slope on its face which is pretty nice. It feels a bit more natural on my wrists. I do wish you could slide the Wii-remote into its base (kinda like the Guitar Hero guitar), but it's connected up at the base like the Nunchuck and Classic controller.

    EDIT: That's disheartening that it doesn't work with VC titles. Has anybody tried it on any other game on disc (Smash Bros, etc)?

    Which is too sensitive? The stick, the buttons, or both?

    I've read that it's pretty comparable to the SFIV stick, in case you've ever played on that board.

    I haven't played with the SE, but I have tried the TE (against a CPU Seth, so I didn't last long). The TE felt too smooth to me, as if there was no physical resistance (and perhaps that's the "too sensitive" I experienced). Although everything I've read about the TvC stick says the parts have been redesigned and are better than the original SE, I still hope to get an understanding of the feel of it before I consider buying one.

    It doesn't seem to work with VC games though...which is unsurprising but still disappointing

    UNsurprising? That can't be right. They even have it as a selling point. "Works with Wii Fighting games and Virtual Console titles"

    O_o that's weird. I've only tried it with super streetfighter II though (ironic, no?). Maybe I should try it out on some others.

    I wouldn't call the stick "too" smooth or anything. The stick itself has a nice, satisfying click in all 8 directions. It's just that the stick and buttons are really really responsive. Maybe that's how they're supposed to be? I dunno, maybe it's just that I've spent too many years playing on busted up boards in the arcade. It never gets annoying or anything, it's just something I've had to account for while playing.

    That's pretty much all it is. You can have free battles or ranked battles which take place through random matchmaking and then there's a place to register your friend codes. You can also register the friend codes of people you've played through random matchmaking on a rivals list.

    Besides the usual controllers and sticks, what other controllers are out there? Using the classic controller just isn't doing it for me. I don't want to use the nunchuk+wii remote (although I haven't tried it). Gamecube controller I don't think I would like and I don't want to buy another stick since I JUST got the TE stick on the 360.

    Basically, I want a controller with a dpad a little better than the classic controller and the controller a tad bit larger.

    edit: What about one of these?

    controller 1

    controller 2

    controller 3 (would that work with an American Wii?)

    The Classic Controller's D-Pad is one of the better ones out there, and you certainly won't find better on third party Wii pads.

    Yes, the Classic Controller Pro works fine on North American Wiis from what I've heard. Stay away from Nyko's $19.99 controllers like the plague. The grip is alright, but I'm not sure it's really what you're looking for.

    (That Black CC Pro looks sexy, I may look into buying one myself.)

    EDIT: Also added another 9/10 review from GameTrailers to the OP for those who haven't figured out that mainstream critics like this game yet :P .

    EDIT EDIT: Hey redfield85, Play Asia has the Black CC Pro for cheaper than the one over at Amazon ($29.90). Shipping kinda evens it out ($9.40), but its still cheaper over there.

    EDIT x3: Hey hey, looks like the Black CC Pro will be headed stateside. It doesn't look like it will come out until Monster Hunter Tri hits the states (April 6th) but the controller will only be $20 when it finally does get a domestic release.

    What do you have the stick set to? LS, DP, or RS?

    I can't help you regarding #1, I have Nyko's version of #2 (see Youtube below) and I'll be trying that out later to see how well that works. Maybe it'll help take some force off my left thumb so I don't try so hard on it.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxoV34rCrws&feature=related

    For #3, that's actually coming to NA sometime in April, but if you're really willing to spend $44, may I point you to perhaps an alternative that you might have more use for?

    It allows you to use a PS2/Wii CC/N64 controller through the Gamecube port. You can even customize the N64 button configuration to whatever you want, so you can play Sin & Punishment as it was intended as an example. Here are my impressions on it. I tried this with TvC last night with an N64 controller. It works just fine but TvC also has the same problem I had with other GC games where the game controls needed the analog of L and R to work. You can still get a perfectly fine setup with B, Left-C, Up-C being L,M,H, A being Partner, and Down-C being L+M+H. You just won't be able to taunt AFAIK.

    If you do decide on getting this, I recommend getting an extension cable. Hopefully they'll be back it stock soon. While there's nothing wrong with the length of an N64 controller, I don't see it being a good idea to have the weight of the converter hanging on the actual console control port.

    I actually have the GC controller extenders. Haha. I am going to look into that. I would love to use my PS2 controllers on some games.

    I think I will order the converter thingy and head to best buy after work at 8 and see if they have the classic controller grips.

    Just wanted to update on the usage of Classic Controller grips. This game is the one and only time those grips have felt natural to the controller. Every other time I could always feel the separation of plastic between controller and grip. If you're sticking with the Classic Controller, those grips might be worth getting. They're pretty cheap now too. Just pack a lunch to work one day, use the money you'd spend otherwise for those grips, and you'll still have money leftover.

    I will admit though - it's a tougher fight against Yami for Gold Lightan. All his super specials are nearly useless.

    EDIT: While I'm thinking about it - I've said this feels like the true, spiritual sequel to MvC2. Now that I've played it a little more, it feels like the love child of MvC2 and Project Justice.

    its the most broken move I've discovered so far in the game. how the hell are you supposed to defend against it? You can't turtle and block because he will throw you, you can't attack since he's immune to stun (not to mention he can regain all health lost), the only real option is to run but the thing can last like 30 seconds which feels like 30 hours.

    I've found it better than SF4 personally. But SF4 kinda hated me, no matter what the bars said i'd have lag a good 50% of the time minimum. With this i'm not sure where the people i've been playing are from, but I have my player matching set to global and I only get bad lag 1/10 matches

    edit: kaijin is the new bane of my existance, every match i've played tonight has had him, and most of the time i lose to people just mashing his basic attacks D: on the bright side i guess at least the g.lightan spamming has died down

    Okay, maybe I haven't seen it. I thought it was him putting on a mask and just having more power in his hits to the point of being kinda broken.

    I guess I need to examine Soki a little more.

    Anyway, want to know what's cool? TvC will be in EVO 2010! I'm so glad this game is getting a chance.
