If you suck at Virtua Fighter, PlayStation wants to help

on 14 June 2012

PlayStation Plus members are currently enjoying 12 free games courtesy of the service's instant game collection. One of these titles is Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, and if you're anything like me, the thought of mastering a top-tier fighter is laughable. Thankfully, the friendly folks over at the official PlayStation Blog (alongside Sega and the VF community) are here to help.

In a video released earlier today – the third in a series of tutorials – Sega's associate brand manager Jeff Beckham gives you the rundown on using basic attacks to effectively break your opponent's guard and string together combos at the right time. Advanced (read: professional) techniques come near the end.

If the game's overwhelming number of moves and character variety has you swimming in a sea of confusion, or if you just feel like upping your game, check out the video below:
