Community: The Australian FGC BAM6 special featuring A1Major:

He tells us about his history in the SA arcade scene, what he loves about arcades, life+fighting game philosophy and why he keeps coming back to Battle Arena Melbourne (BAM).
This was filmed last year at BAM6 and offers a no-holds barred glimpse into the raucous fun that goes on at BAM, and all the colourful characters and hype moments that happen. Hope to see you guys next week at BAM7 :slight_smile:
