Ask @SSMalikJ:

Advice for courage to ask someone out?

Honestly it's never not a nerve racking thing but what works for me to muster up the strength is to have it fully resolved in my mind & body to ascertain how I feel about them, then while facing myself in the mirror, take deep breaths and vocally reflect on how I feel about who I'm preparing to ask out. Then from there try to make a setting where it's private enough for only the two of you to interact but open enough for them to feel comfortable at.
In my case it's went well once, and that was after being rejected an initial time, but it happens. My actual views on that stuff are a bit mixed

Why do people kill each other?

Since the beginning of mankind, people have killed each other for survival, differences in opinions (mainly religion involvment), women (lovers), and natural resources. There are personal grudges and or impulses that people act upon but based on what I've read & learned in my life, those are the main reasons why.

What do you think about the current state of the King of Fighters/SNKP scene in regards to players and tournament activity?

I see it like this, if the Melee community can get people who love the game & stay committed to it (note this is a game that was released in 2001 or 2002 without netplay and before the internet became what we know it as) as well as have their own scene for things then why can't KOFXIII do the same? There's things we have to start changing but if USA becomes the hub for it then in fine with that, hopefully other places in the world that stopped playing it will get back on it because this game is amazing to say get least & people that play it love something about it enough to stay committed to it.

What's your history of fighting games played?

I've always played various types video games from being 2 years old but played fighters quite a bit. Street Fighter III 3rd Strike really got me curious about tournaments & was the first fighter I played that I wanted to be the best I could be in. Then hopped back to Super Turbo & HD Remix, didn't play that since I was a kid & it was fun. Street Fighter IV came out & I was playing it for awhile but not really having fun.
Then I played Melty Blood Actress Again (PS2) version & had so much fun I decided that was the next game to play. Started tampering w/ CAPCOM Vs. SNK 2 again cause me & my brother use to play the CvS series a ton growing up & I always appreciated crossover games. After Melty Blood I got into KOFXIII & everyone knows where that stands lol. if you don't, just YouTube "DC Malik KOF," results will show up.
The most recent fighting series I am currently into is Guilty Gear Xrd~Sign & am enjoying the game more than I thought I would. Games I actively play are Xrd, KOFXIII, and CvS2 (whenever there's an opportunity for me to play it), but have messed with tons of others not listed in my competitive history. Maybe one day I might get into the Virtua Fighter or Tekken series competitively because those are franchises I've enjoyed since I was a child but it'd have to be one or the other, not both lol.
