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:
