In the new golden age of fighting games, there is an insane amount of options for fun and well balanced fighting games. With so much choice, its likely you’ll to want to pick up a new game to try it out. But trying new games also comes with having to learn a ton of new mechanics and characters which can be overwhelming. Here’s where some tutorials can be helpful to get your feet wet and learn the game faster.
SoulCalibur VI is the premier 3D weapon-based fighting game by Bandai Namco. The game play with weapons along with its famous 8-way run system allows for dynamic and fast paced fights. The latest iteration of the game has been extremely well received by the fighting game community due to its increased speed and its design philosophy to make every character feel powerful.
Virtual Bacon starts from the bare basics and gets into the meat what’s necessary to succeed in SoulCalibur VI. The guides are extremely well produced with visual aids and don’t run too long with its well scripted narration.
When you’re done with the series, you’ll learn the following:
- Basic Controls and Notations
- General flow of the game
- Generic inputs that most characters share
- Quirks of the game not found in run of the mill tutorials
- Useful defensive techniques and when to use them
- Understanding how to use frame data
- And more
As someone who is mainly a 2D fighting game player, I find these types of tutorials are extremely helpful as there are mechanics that are specific to 3D fighters.
