eugh, no thanks retro-nerd. i was / have never been into arcade stylings, and would rather have a nice small little pad to pick up rather than that massive bastard!
i understand, but cant relate to the diagonal problem on a pad. ive never had such issues myself.
however, you cant suffer with the diagonals on the ps2 analogue stick, in fact you can do far more accurate and fast turns with it than you can do with a zipstick.... all it takes is a little flick of the thumb rather than moving your whole wrist... jobs a goodun!
i agree the cd32 original pad is horrible, but the comp pro one is imho, even better than the sega one...
i like pads, maybe its an acquired taste. nuff said.
