Coming off of his numerous wins at NEC 14, Justin talks about the highlights of the event, the exhibition matches with EMP|Sanford Kelly, and more.

If you missed the event, you may not have heard that Justin took home first place victories in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012, Street Fighter X Tekken, and Killer Instinct. In this interview he sheds a bit of light on how he is able to jump from game to game, and achieve such success.

Recalling the time when he was growing up and grinding out games at the China Town Fair arcade in New York, Justin says that he used to drop a token down on every fighting game cabinet they had running. He did this for many years, and this is what led him to being fluent in multiple titles.
