Square Enix’s Dissidia series is fantastic, it’s full of fan service and a blast to play. It also can be hard to grasp, as the controls aren’t the easiest to remember and there’s a variation on what each character can do with their move sets. I know during the beta, and a few weeks back, I initially struggled with grasping how Cloud played differently than Vaan, or even Tidus. There was a moment during my hands-on time that everything suddenly made sense, and it clicked – I was dodging, attacking, building bravery to take down the CPU like I was actually my character; I was a stylish hero.
This video is perfect for anyone who wants to learn the basics of Dissidia, which launches early next year for PlayStation 4, I’d recommend watching it once or twice to get a sense of how the mechanics work. My one piece of advice to those interested? Don’t panic, breathe, it’s a fun game that plays best against other players.
