A little backstory. The last 3 fighting games I've played are MK9..then DoA for the dreamcast and finally Tekken on the PS1. So as far as fighting game history goes...mine is pretty terrible. I got skullgirls because it was supposed to pull back the veil on the 'meta' behind fighting games that's just so confusing to someone who hasn't been playing these games from the start. The tutorial was okay but I feel like there is still so much that it isn't teaching me (for instance, how the fuck do you do your tag partners special?)
I just tried a little online and got utterly *destroyed* in every single game but one. Checking their achivements they had hundreds of points in SF4, MvC, Blazblue..the list goes on. I don't have an arcade stick and don't really feel like spending £100 for a game that I'm in all likely hood going to stay terrible at.
So is there anyone out there that has this as new as me that wants to practice? I just want to not feel physically terrible after every match because I can't even manage to get off a combo against these people :( I really want to learn, it's just impossible *to* learn anything when you're beaten this badly.
