Ask @SSMalikJ:

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.

Do you think you've changed in the last year? In what way?

I've become more bold in critical decisions in my life & started getting into a better physical shape. Also been cutting the fat on relationships that were one-sided & it feels nice to keep those vital & important to me in my corner.

What is something you expected to happen while in basic but didn't? (If any..)

People to get in a fist fight or one of the training instructors using "older" methods to put trainees into mental Military shape. Also people getting it in @ this expedition exercise we had because of rumors heard, but as far as I know it didn't happen.

How did your trip to Bama go over the weekend?

It honestly went great & I had a pretty fun time, although all the players I wish could have made it didn't, but life happens so everyone can't make certain events. Wasn't satisfied w/ my tournament performance, but it's to be expected since I'm still new to Xrd, but I'll get where I want in a decent amount of time at this rate.

What was your first big disappointment?

From what I remember feeling, it'd have to be repeat the 5th grade (10 years old at the time) not because I wasn't smart enough, but because I allowed my home & life situation to prevent me from doing what was important to me. Now that I think about it, those were pretty depressing times.
