WinnerStaysOn’s LoganSama, Shady K, and Kim1234 of YUBIKEN recently put together a brand new fighting game podcast called The Jump-In to talk about various subjects concerning the community.

For their first episode, they touch on the subject of tournament commentary, highlighting the idea that the community may have lowered the bar when streaming was in its infancy by letting just anyone hop on the mic.

They also take the time to talk about the job itself, noting its difficult nature and the fact some competitors have to give up playing just to be able to do commentary for an entire weekend. This naturally leads into the question of whether or not commentators should be compensated for their work.

Give their thoughts some of your time and let us know what you think in the comments.

When not writing for Shoryuken's front page, D3v spends part of his time running tournaments in the Philippines, including the country's biggest fighting game event, Manila Cup.
