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.

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?

Just 1200 words left to go on my essays. Do I deserve a day off to play Just Cause 3 once I'm done? Yes.

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.

Well, Destructoid. I did it. I jumped ahead.

Taking a break from Fallout 4 to try out Twitch Creative. Catch me painting Chun-Li while listening to an eclectic mix of Alex G, DJ Shadow, and Modest Mouse. [img][/img]

So far from first impressions of my Freedom Planet indie box its 100% more worth it than lootcrate. Whereas lootcrate you get a bunch of stuff you may or may not like, indie box gives you indie games, and stuff related to that game, such as the soundtrack

When one game is rated 7.4 and another 7.6, Are you telling me one game is 0.2 worse than the other. WHAT!?!

I think Microsoft takes the cake for worst console updates. The XBone UI is worse and the fucking controller had an update. What the hell has gaming become?

Well, that's a wrap for the Bloodborne DLC. I liked it. More thoughts and maybe spoilers in the comment section.

a rainy afternoon, and too sleepy for games. Time to go to the animal shelter and try not to fall asleep, surrounded by kittens.
