In this episode, The Fighting Game Problem - How to Teach Complicated Mechanics, they reveal the importance of a good tutorial and how it can help the casual gamer access and appreciate the strategic depth the genre has to offer.

In a recent interview featured on SRK, DEATH CRUNCH! - Smashing Through the Cage of Fighting Vipers 2, James Moses sets out to uncover all those things that made FV2 such a unique, exciting and, in many ways, pioneering 3D fighting game for its time, including many parallel threads with Virtua Fighter. In the first part of the interview, VFDC's @Zero-chan shares some personal history revealing how "VF2 [being] like a message from God" led her onto a journey culminating in a deep passion for the Vipers franchise during "the mid-90s, when fighting game damage was at ridiculous levels." In the second part, VF legend Heruru provides invaluable insight from a high-level player's perspective and reveals why he thinks "Fighting Vipers 2 has one of the best game systems for a 3D fighter."

There's some excellent work in progress by @Strider786 in collating a VF5FS Defensive Technique Compendium, with contributions from many users. I put together a video guide in response to a request to explain the technique of Side Fuzzy Guarding first described in Arcadia Issue #147. In addition to just showing you how to perform the technique, I also demonstrate what happens when you're side turned and you decide to either Guard, Evade, Crouch or Attack against the Opponent's Punch, Mid attack or Throw. As you'll see, none of these basic defensive techniques above will protect you against all three options. But that's where the Side Fuzzy Guard comes in!

This is an interesting, and very nostalgic, series produced by 3amGameVids looking back at the Virtua Fighter franchise. While it's primarily focused on the home console ports, it's serves as a great review on the innovations introduced and the boundaries continually pushed by the Virtua Fighter series.
