I've been playing for 4 days almost straight. I know you guys will say you've been playing 4 days chill out dude but that is wrong. I've played Tekken and some of Yoshimitsu's moves on Soulcalibur 4 are very similar to Tekken. One of my major problems is with guarding. I can guard, and I try, but the problems are, I never know when a grapple is coming, so if I am going to be thrown, it always works for the other player, and unless I'm spamming a door knocker, I will not usually be able to break a grapple.
Another thing, I never know if a low attack or a high attack is coming, so that's another weakness. There are a few things that come to my mind on this issue.
One of my ideas was to learn ALL of the characters which would take months of work, but I would know which attack is coming and know to guard against it.
Another idea was to try some mind exercises and do things like caffine which would help my alert level, but that seemed to be not very practical.
A fail SC player, 2 dumb ideas, it doesn't mix very well. I am so bad at the game that I am actually struggling on the Tower of Lost Souls.
Another thing I fail at is repel/parry. Since I am not psychic I do not know when to parry or repel. Somebody please just save me, give me an infinite (metaphor) sample combo or something that works well, just give me advice on how I can stop these messages on XBOX 360 which say stuff like "You suck" and "Noob".
