Markman, is there any way those keychains can be bought? I want!
Markman is mean. When I ordered a TE from the madcatz store I did not receive a keychain.

Markman, why are you so mean?

You should have called in with your order info so we could have gotten you a keychain.

Also, these keychains will never be for sale.

For the record, plexiglass sucks. I cracked it setting one of the buttons in and I was being about as delicate as I could possibly be. Maybe I'll replace it down the line, but for now, this is my EVO stick.

At the end of the blog I said that I was still going to EVO no matter what, I just thought the girl tourney was a horrible idea and I still believe it is. I actually think its an even worse idea than when I originally wrote that entry all things considered, but I'll still be there for it because I need to see if all my predictions come true ;o

that stick looks pretty good
shame about the plexi cracking though
I had no idea it was so fragile. I think a cover made out of kleenex would have been preferable ;o

I just bought the SF4 TE Stick and it seems pretty cool. I have never reallyused an arcade stick before. I seem to be having a lot of trouble pulling off moves that I can do fine on a controller though, Guess I'll just have to practice more....How long does it typically take to get used to these things?

whatever you do, don't get discouraged from using it. It'll take a long time, and for the first few weeks, month even, you'll be maybe about as good with a stick as you were on a bad day with a controller. Then it'll start to increased if you keep at it. Just don't be afraid to spend a lot of time in training mode to get used to it as well.

I really like having the customization options, especially for the bezel, but $15 for that seems a little ridiculous compared to the prices of an entire stick.

What are the chances of a 10% discount being put out for Evo? Has MarkMan announced one yet? (or will you? :D)

Finally done. Beat Mass Effect 2 while waiting for the paint to dry.







Seimitsu LS-33 and snap-ins. The blue looks a little more 'baby' in these pics than it actually is.

Sure, but $15 is still quite a bit for a very simple piece of plastic. I actually did paint the bezel on my PS3 TE before I sold it... but Krylon Fusion spray paint doesn't stay on very well though and stars rubbing off through normal use, and I eventually removed all of it before selling the stick.

First ninja-shots of the Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition GOLD for EVOLUTION 2010:









Only 24 of these arcade sticks were made. The only chance to get a hold of one of these is by either placing top eight in Super Street Fighter IV at EVO2010, winning the ladies SSFIV event, OR via raffle live at the event or by watching the EVO2K live stream!
