JOYSTICK OR KEYPAD

I learned something yesterday... it doesn't matter if you're using joysticks or keypads or keyboards, as long as it's functional! I was beaten while using yoshi yesterday because the joystick doesn't recognize the down direction sometimes...:( (although I admit the bigger factor is my lack of yoshi skills :p)

Anyway, I'm getting more inclined to keypads now, as I'm having a hard time sometimes getting the u/f or d/f directions (maybe due to the faulty joystick or maybe just mine). Also, I think playing t5 in a PS2 is cheaper rather than buying tokens everytime I'll play in the arcade...

*sigh* I need a LOT of training...
