Hmmm.. how did I miss this thread? Anyway, I was never able to get the hang of using the shoulder buttons to select a weapon when it was introduced in MMX, or maybe I'm just too stubborn to take the time to learn how many presses will get me what it is I want (probably this). Granted, SMBC isn't as difficult to pick up on in that regard.. since there's one weapon taken from each 8-bit game and it cycles in order.. but still.. I tend to fumble around with the cycle buttons longer than is probably necessary. I'm more precise with the menu and it ends up being faster as a result. I dunno though. My stubbornness aside, I don't think this is really needed at all.. but I'd be much more comfortable with a pause menu style weapon select.
