Justin Wong: If I played Akuma or Cammy, I don’t think I’d play them to their potential, because I find them extremely boring to play Evil Geniuses' Justin Wong recently sat down with CoolGrayAJ to reflect back on 2012 and discuss some of his plans for 2013.

They discuss a lot of different subjects from counter picking, Dieminion, America vs. the world and more.

Justin also goes into details on why he hasn't picked up characters like Cammy or Akuma in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012.

CoolGrayAJ: You’ve said before that you just want to win now, and you’ve expressed your interest in playing top tier. Can you elaborate on this more, because we haven’t really seen this either in SF or in Marvel.

JWong: I’ve always felt that if you play the best characters in the game, and have an invested interest in those characters, then you can bring the full potential out in those characters. If I played Akuma or Cammy, I don’t think I’d play them to their potential, because I find them extremely boring to play. Even though they have crazy mixups, and great matchups versus certain characters, I just don’t connect with them. It’s the same thing with Marvel. I’m no stranger to lame play, but I just connect with a character like Morrigan.
