John Cena says SNK is obsolete

Welp, while many of us do like a bit of wrestling, it’s probably safe to say we don’t like celebrities spreading misinformation. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, John Cena talked about the upcoming Nintendo switch, making a reference to our favourite company as how he got into games, just not in the most informed way…

“I loved Baseball Stars, which is a title by a now obsolete company called SNK. That was my wheelhouse. The thing that attracted me most was you could go as far into the games as you wanted.”

You can read the full article here but that’s the only thing you really need to know.  Cena goes onto to say Switch is the “future of gaming”, which makes you wonder if Nintendo is sponsoring the wrestler or the WWE, or even Sports Illustrated in some way, which isn’t a problem as such, but it doesn’t make John very credible as a modern gamer when after name dropping Metal Gear and a few other classics, it’s clear that he’s unaware of the gaming scene today, where SNK is very much alive and well.

Feel free to tweet him (nicely) here…. but you probably won’t get a response as twitter seems to love trolling him… ah well….


Top 4 #kofxiv at #cwc2017 streaming now

After a hectic 2v2 battle which culminated Saturday morning, team GCC came out on top! Brackets. To see replays click on the stream links below to see archives. Post will be updated with YouTube links when available.

As for the solo, the initial stages have been completed. All that is left is top 4 between Frionel, ON.Charlybeatz, Violence and Z-Kirua! brackets. Check the stream links below to see the action today!

If you’re wondering about the kof 13 solo, it had 12 entrants. Pls. It’s game over for the classic. It can be argued that players couldn’t manage to bring two sticks, but if they really wanted to, they could have managed. In the end, at the hotel sessions, nobody played 13. It’s kof14 from now on! And while fun, I still feel this new game needs adjustments before it can become a classic.

Speaking of casual matches Vics got his revenge on Cristina after she took him out of winners brackets, showing her the full power of Bandeiras!

In the brackets, Cristina went on to rock with her team including Angel, Mui Mui and Mai, plus a great looking tank top before falling victim to the Violence…

Speaking of Violence, more of the same will be coming up today. Both him and Z-Kirua made a very impressive display at cwc2017, not to mention Charly, making 3 out of the top 4 never seen before at this major.

In fact, there were perhaps 16 unknown players entering, a very good sign, with some upsets!

Frionel being the only veteran, will his experience take him to victory? The younger players have such quick reactions!

Tournaments in a public space can only be good for games, but sometimes you wonder if the general public has any idea of what they are looking at! I remember noticing an old dude with his grand kids sitting in the audience, not sure if they were enjoying it but they were certainly watching!

Much has to be said about camera shots and early morning tournaments; at least we didn’t have to suffer the embarrassment of empty seats.
