Been playing for many straight hours and am about to go over to a friends house to keep the fighting going. I've stopped playing this last hour due to my left thumb being raw from all the dpad smashing.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem? Do bandaids or bandages work?

Listen carefully.

A solution of salt in acetone works wonders!

This happens whenever Capcom releases a great fighting game. Last time I had it was SFIV. Time before that was MVC2. The cure is to stop playing for awhile. You will build a callous for it.

Best bet is to just take a break, and maybe apply some ice to it.

But honestly the best remedy is to get a stick ( i know i know, inb4getastick is already there), but I've played for probably 10 hours today and my hands feel absolutely fine.

Work through the pain until the tip hardens, then you won't feel anything.

It's like sex with a virgin basically...and you're both the guy and the virgin. ;)

I don't have the money for a stick. Being an Australian, the only fight sticks we have around here are terrible, which means I got to import, and importing means more money, which again, I don't have.
Listen carefully.

investing in a stick is the best way to go for these games
