This week I’m joined by the other half of UltraChenTV, David Graham. Naturally we talk about David’s entry into the fighting game community, how he started commentating, and what goes in to preparing content for each episode of UltraChenTV. We also cover David’s day job as an attorney at DGP Law, why he went to law school, and how his work as an attorney complements his work as a commentator. David also shares some predictions for the fighting game community as the video game industry prepares for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Enjoy.
