MarlinPie has been known for a long time as one of America’s greatest players of Guilty Gear, across multiple iterations of the title. He also became well-known for his C. Viper point play in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. But his obsession with insane execution dates further back than the Guilty Gear or Vs. franchises could ever reach.
In this video with BornFree, he talks about how his perfectionism in fighting games stems from practicing special move motions as a 3-year old. He also discusses the direction of Guilty Gear as it embarks on a pro tour, and what continues to drive him as a player.
