Meh, maybe it is just me, but this doesn't really seem like an ideal game for a PC?

I suppose you could buy a USB based arcade pad for the PC somewhere, but this seems more of a console/arcade game than one for the PC.

That's just me mostly, I'm sure.

Maybe.
People just aren't used to the idea of fighting games on PC..but I don't see a difference. They've said the arcade pads they're working on with Mad Catz will be compatible with the game on PC..and there's the Xbox 360 PC controller..so there's really no difference, aside from a potentially better display/graphics.

I think the biggest thing is just the controller. This game just would not be that fun if you could only play with a keyboard. With the controller and a good matchmaking service for online play, I think the game will be really good.

I'd never even try to play a game like this with a keyboard. Some PC games just need a controller or some alternate input, like racing games and modern RPGs (I tried The Last Remnant demo with kb/mouse and it was a *bleep*ing nightmare).

I suspect Street Fighter IV, especially with the arcade stick support, will help curb the notion a fighting game can't transfer well to PC.

I'm looking forward to this game. Mouse and keyboard are fun but using the controller once and a while is fun too and this game is one I hope to play using the controller. I can't wait to see the high res textures.

pc fighting games are way more adavned than consoles. In fact there is fighting mmo's on the you can't get that on consoles. Both consoles and pc don't handle fighting games well. fighting games shines as a acade game than a console.

^^^^ huh that Blade and Soul looks pretty good, and I've never heard of it before. Thanks for posting.

There seems to be a whole crop of persistent world, action based sorta-MMORPs using the Unreal Engine 3 coming out. That's cool.
