To mash or not to mash?
That is the question! well it is when it comes to fighting games.
Recently we have had a tidal wave of fighting games flood our consoles & so with this rise of games like
Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition 2012 (ridiculous, right?)
It is only obvious that arcade sticks would suddenly become popular.
While I enjoy looking like a bad ass as much as the next person, I lack the skill to use an arcade stick correctly….
but that didn’t stop me from making my own!
You may be saying to your self ”Slinqui, what the f*ck is an arcade stick?” & I would simply say “Well my friend, its a box! with buttons!”
Still confused? I’m not surprised. I’m bad at explaining stuff so instead let me show you!
This is what my arcade stick originally looked like, the only difference being that mine was for the ps3.
So I’m a very visual person (by that i mean i like eye searing colors)
As you can see this arcade stick is not Slinqui friendly. So with that being said or written…. I decided it needed some changes…
Sexy Succubus! Found this lovely artwork & printed it out.
The last thing that was needed were the buttons, ball top & plexi glass.
Once I had everything it was finally the moment of truth!
& now let the button mashing begin! Just kidding.
My only blunder was the ball top, the color was not what i had anticipated.
It ended up being apple green instead of a turquoise which is a closer match to Morrigan’s hair.
This was a very fun project and I definitively want to thank my significant other for helping me.
I’m really happy with the way my arcade stick turned out but stay tuned in case i make some more changes in the future.
ps. i play Umvc3
