Sajam has quickly become one of the go-to names in commentary for Street Fighter, and fighting games in general. He’s known for being highly knowledgeable and entertaining, as well as notorious for some of the best [Or at least funniest! – Editor] advertisement segues in the business. He has honed his craft at Wednesday Night Fights and moved up to the big leagues in a relatively short time.

At E3, BornFree caught up with Sajam, and let him bend his ear prior to his flight for CEO about numerous topics. They talked about how he practiced his commentary, and honed his craft in multiple games — something Sajam attributes to actually playing numerous games and characters, to get a feel for mechanics and matchups, as well as learning from his commentary partner, who may be more knowledgeable in a game than himself. They also talked about his impressions of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, in which Sajam echoed Alex Valle’s sentiments of the graphics needing to be fixed, but the gameplay already being fun. They also talked about Capcom’s design decisions, in which he believes that Capcom has gone way too far in the opposite extreme compared to Street Fighter IV, and that player concerns in both directions are legitimate.
