Thanks for the heads up.

Does anyone know whatever happened to that former best Melee player called simply "Ken"? Use to play with Marth I believe.

I don't follow the smash scene but I do recall him being the Justin Wong of Melee for a while but don't seem to hear anything about him anymore.

He retired because he didn't like Brawl. Also, he became Hollywood. He made it on National TV ala Survivor. Would have won too if he didn't get super duper cocky. He had everyone in the palm of his hand.

oh wow ... good for him I guess to at least be on the show.

Too bad he doesn't play anymore but it's understandable. Brawl took away so much of the technical aspects of Melee.
