@monorail Not Everyone Owns A Mint Condition Gamepad, Karen

@raindare i mean if you're trying to do that on a gamepad you're boned anyway

@monorail i have never tried to do double quarter circle whatever the heck inputs on a gamepad. i have just always assumed they are designed for and somehow easier on a gamepad

@monorail ok thats way worse in terms of "You Must Be At Least This Pro Player Hardware To Ride"

@raindare yeah but at least it's standard, like these games are designed to be played in arcades and at least fightsticks are the same input hardware
