How To Play SoulCalibur VI in 2023 | 12 TIPS You Should Know!

Great stuff there. Thanks for sharing that guidance. I miss playing SC6, since I don't
currently own a PS4 at the moment, but it's great to know that this guide can be applied
to other SC games. I at least am able to play SC4 and 5 on the old Xbox 360. XD

I do appreciate these basic tactics. In the heat of the moment, the basics can be easily forgotten.
Always great to know especially for casuals like myself, who don't always play as frequently as I would
have wanted to, but I still enjoy the franchise whenever I could manage the time. The community is currently not as socially active at the moment. But at the very least, I do appreciate you sharing this video. Great to know there are still active Soul Cal fans here. This franchise has made such a huge impact in my gaming life. Who ever thought a fighting game could be so deep and immersive like this? Awesome stuff. :)
