Williams, Ken

Ken Williams, the original writer of Sushi-X for EGM magazine, was known for his love of fighting games and the infamous Sheng Long trick in the April (fools) 1992 issue of EGM that ended up being reprinted without verification worldwide and influenced the creation of both Akuma and Gouken… an incredible legacy for a guy who loved fighting games to get! Meet him at the show and challenge him to a round of SF2 while you’re at it!
