Street fighter beat the crap out of me.

So after literal weeks of throwing half hours at Juri's 24 trial, I emerged from my doctor's office today with a cloud of depression over my head and a letter of specialist treatment in hand as I recieved my first carpal tunnel diagnosis.

I feel defeated. Damn you Juri.

Maybe i should just buy a fightstick and stop fumbling with this damn pad.

I love Street Fighter and have from SFII in arcades. I got a fightpad for 360 because the button layout was awful and I have ALWAYS wanted a stick from day one just can't see myself dropping so much money I just don't want to get a bad one ether. It's a tough choice but I know for a fact from playing at a friends that the Madcats TE sticks are amazing!

I wish I could play Street Fighter, but I suck at the game. I don't have the time to keep up with fighting games, and once I leave it for a few months and come back I cannot remember anything and can't go back.

That probably won't help you but I thought the Juri trials were the best in the game and not that hard compared to some others. Try some C. Viper or El Fuerte.

Vipers 21-22 trial ^^ Oh my!

But yes, if you main yuri(or thinking about playing her for real) you should get a stick. I found it hopeless to get her combos going while holding 2 charge fireballs on the controller.

A fightstick will help your hands and your gameplay. It's worth the money if you play a lot.

@Vortexus1981: lol i certainly don't doubt theres harder out there. i'm a respectably good street fighter (or was about 10 years ago) but SSF4 really has kicked my butt. Juri is my main and i do okay with her, have a hard time comboing her stuff together a lot of the time but she's pretty adaptable and fast, makes up for my misgivings.

I also play sakura who i can't even get past trial 13 with! and Ibuki who i'm stuck on 22 with.

Be warned, if you're not accustomed to using an arcade stick it'll take a lot of practise to even get as good as you were with pad. I got a TE a few months ago and I'm still adjusting (I am ass though, so don't let that you put you off too much.)
