Snooker finally comes to the Wii in WSC Real 09

9:20 AM on 08.03.2009 // Topher Cantler

Now you may be asking yourself, "What the f*ck is Snooker?" That's a valid question, and the answer is that I have no idea. If I had to guess I'd say it's a knockoff candy bar, although it also kinda sounds like the word this German lady across the street used to yell at me when I was a kid. Whatever it is, it's coming to the Wii.

Google Image Search tells me it's like Pool, only all the balls are red. One has to wonder why they didn't just call it Pool With Red Balls and save us all the trouble, but it's kind of a sport and I'm not Samit, so I'll just keep quiet. Titled WSC Real 09, the game uses the Wiimote as a Pool Snooker cue, and lets you face off against in-game versions of the world's top Snooker players.

I guess if there are people out there playing this professionally, that makes it a real thing. In that case, some of you might know what it is and dig it. If that's you, you can check out all the details in the full press release after the jump. If that's not you, the game also features regular Pool, but that's for sissies. Real men play Snooker. Apparently.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"

I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)

I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]

In need of another writer for my monthly blog on the PS Plus games. Given how nobody really reviews all of them (and after spending time downloading bad ones), I thought it'd be a nice time to try and do it for the PS users out there. So... Need some help
