I'm really into beat 'em ups but you're right, there's precious little on the PC. The best thing I've yet played was Melty Blood, which is pretty easily available to buy online. It's very much like Guilty Gear (another favourite).
Then, aren't any games of this genre going to be released for PC ? I mean because of many reasons like Windows Vista's games that don't need installation as all console games don't and Microsoft supporting this genre more than ever.
PC contolers really don't do well for Fighting games, those are best left up to the consoles. The only thing you can really do for a fix, is look for older games that was released for PCs, and get a 6 button game pad. But you won't find Xbox type controlers for PC and that's the kind you really need for fighting games.
Actually the wired 360 controller does work on the PC, and the wireless if you get the reciever. I don't see fighters ever really embracing the pc, I doubt the developers see there being enough revenue to be had to take the time porting their titles to the PC. While I wouldn't go out of my way to play a fighting game on the PC (I lack skills at fighting games), playing the old arcade fighters is still fun.
if you all are looking for fightings check Rumble Fighter it is an online fighting game www.ogplanet.com they have a boss mode that just came out in the us originaly in japan and now in europe, the europe version is in beta i believe but if you lie there then i guess you should download where you are from =/
