Qanba Crystal Joystick Review

If you were a fan of the Qanba, especially it’s Q-line of arcade sticks (like the Q4, for instance), you may have been wondering as to why they were in the dark for a brief period of time that fighting games started to gain momentum on the PS4.

Hori Fighting Edge Stick Review

Hori Fighting Edge Stick Review

MadCatz Tournament Edition Round 1 Xbox 360 Review

MadCatz Tournament Edition Round 1 Xbox 360 Review

  Product Overview When it comes to playing games like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat or any of the popular 2D fighters in the market, the most commonly-used controller happens to be the arcade stick. And with good reason – fighting games were introduced to the market in the arcades, where joysticks and buttons were used to control characters on screen as they fireballed, dragon-punched and spin-kicked their way to victory (or at the very least, enjoyment). When Street Fighter 4 was released back in 2008, reviews lauded the game for...
