It’s an understatement at this point to say that Alex Valle has been around. Having been competitive in the FGC long before the competitive landscape we see today — or even the label of “FGC” existed — the man is a legend in every game he has picked up.

In this interview with BornFree at E3, Valle opened up about a lot, including his competitive history within the genre. They talk about his humble origins within Street Fighter, which involved getting destroyed early on in the game to learn that he needed to improve. They also discussed his 1998 encounter with a then-unknown in the West Daigo Umehara in Street Fighter Alpha 3 — an exhibition in which Valle now believes he wouldn’t have won, due to Daigo’s adaptability.

They also discuss the future of fighting games, in which Valle talks about Street Fighter V, and his hope that the Super Street Fighter V rumors are true. He also discusses his impressions of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, stating that the graphics need to improve but the gameplay is fun, and has a great level of depth to it.
