Throughout my many years of being a gamer – all 21 of them! – I’ve always had a small, secret love for fighting games, but whenever I’ve tried delving into a fighting game I’ve never managed to get hooked enough to keep me coming back to try and get that much better at the game.
So, to completely maneuver around this, I have decided to put an investment behind me getting better at fighting games; at least to some degree. What I mean by this is that I’ve spent about £50 to get me a decent arcade stick to really try and put some leeway behind me improving for this genre.
I have yet to get acquainted to an arcade stick as of yet, so it might take a fair amount of time before it finally starts to sink in a little more for me, but I do feel in the long run I should be able to improve. One of the things that I always found so much fun about fighting games is the combo system that really rewards hard work and dedication to your character and as a result you’re rewarded with some incredibly satisfying to pull off combos. Obviously there is a lot more to it when it comes to fighting games, but I’ll do what I can to learn enough about the fundamentals, as well as the typical combos for my character.
I completely expect to struggle and be met with frustration after I’ve dropped my combo for the umpteenth time in training mode; yet I feel in the long run I’m going to be satisfied with all of the progress I make.
I’ll do what I can to keep the site up-to date about my progress, especially so if there’s any intrigue about it.
If you’ve got any tips/tricks or even resources that you think might be good for me, feel free to leave them in the comments section down below or by using the “contact me” page and send what you can. I appreciate any and all help that comes my way, and I’ll do my absolute best to put it into practice – providing that I don’t get completely bodied when I’m playing online.
Oh! Who am I kidding?! Of course I’m going to get bodied when I’m playing online!
