Marvel vs Capcom 3 is almost here and if you're a big video game nerd this is likely an arcade fighting game that you remember fondly. Make sure to get the most out of this blast from the past with a few tips to get the most for your money.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 is almost here!

Back when I was a kid, I would walk over to the local arcade with my piggy bank on Saturdays and play games at the local arcade. It actually used to be quite a scene and I guess if there was such a thing as a cool gamer, they would definitely be the kids crowded around fighting games. Among the fighting games, Marvel vs. Capcom was the ultimate and to this day there are still times when I would play it on my Xbox 360 (downloaded from the Xbox Live Arcade).

Using the controller does feel a little weird though because I think in many ways, these arcade fighting games were meant to be played with an arcade joystick. With the Marvel vs Capcom 3 fight stick, you too can enjoy this game in the way it was meant to be played. It is much easier to pull off combos when you completely free up one hand for button mashing while the other hand handles direction with the joystick.

The only reason that controllers are popular is to handle movement in 3D you would need to joysticks, with Marvel vs Capcom 3 however, it is a two dimensional game so you can still play it the classic old school way. Hell, remember the Atari? It was 1 single joystick and 2 buttons! Just get a fight stick for PS3 and you too can be taken back to your child hood like I was. The fight stick also works for plenty of other fighting games not just Marvel vs. Capcom 3 however. You can use it for games like Street fighter 4 or any of the old classic fighting games like King of fighters or Mark of the Wolves!
