Dream Cancel was born from a thread on the Shoryuken.com forums in which users were discussing how to build a stronger scene for the King of Fighters game. This site is my contribution to that effort. I have attempted to create a place for all SNK/SNKP fans to gather, regardless of skill level.
Meet The Team
Kane317 (Dream Cancel Admin)
I’m an entrepreneur in the people building business. I have been playing video games for as long as I can remember dating back to the Atari and the Famicon (NES in the US) days. Growing up in both Hong Kong and the US and various other countries I’ve been exposed to a variety of games but fighting games has always been my poison of choice. Dabbed into SFII like most but it wasn’t till Fatal Fury and of course KOF ’94 that really piqued my interest, since then I have been playing KOF for more years than I care to count and I am not going to stop anytime soon. Ultimately, I plan on growing the XIII community in the US together with the help of Dream Cancel. Contact me.
Desmond Delaghetto (Admin)
I am Desmond Hollins, aka Desmond Delaghetto. I also go by the music producer alias Katrah-Quey. I’ve been playing fighters since I was a little kid but I’ve just taken them seriously since a few years ago. I have always had a appreciation for SNK games and I love sharing them with others. Contact me.
solidshark (SNK Games)
I’m a gamer, fighting enthuiast and long-time SNK fan. I started with the Genesis port of Samurai Shodown (Spirits) 1, and later an arcade cab of KOF ’95 in China, and have been playing since. I’m happy to be a part of the Dream Cancel community, and eager to watch it, and interest in SNKP fighters, grow in the US and everywhere else.
Nocturnal (Fatal Fury, Garou)
My name is Jaime Deleon, aka Nocturnal. I’m currently a lead supervisor for a call center in Southern California. I’m also an aspiring artist trying to break into the 2D traditional/flash animation field. I’ve been playing fighters since SF2WW came out back in 1991. I knew about SNK games but never really had a chance to play most of them until later on. Most people know me from being one of the few people that plays Garou MOTW competitively in the US. I’m also currently helping to support as much as I can with the KOFXIII community.
Jinxhand (Training Room, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, SNK Games, Pro-Gear)
My name is Devin Williams, aka Jinxhand. I’m a native of Maryland, but currently a California resident. Outside from specializing in the IT & communication fields, I also produce music, artwork, and am into a few other things. Not to be one to follow the crowd, I preferred games like Samurai Shodown over Street Fighter 2. Despite this mindset, I still play every fighting game to its full potential and make it my goal to respect all fighting games and communities alike.
Pronounced (fay-tuh-con). An avid fan of all things technological, including gaming. Video game experience started in 87′ with an NES. Started KoF in 94′. If there’s a fighting game, I probably enjoy playing it, or at least know quite a bit about it. Loves cooking and long walks at the arcade. Never. Stops. Talking. Always up for new experiences and meeting new people, so say hello!
Sibarraz (KOF 98/UM, KOF 2002/UM)
I’m Sebastián Barraza, from Santiago de Chile. I’m a relatively new KOF player from 2007 when I found a machine with 98 where there was nothing else to play. Since then, I became both a rabid fan of fighting games and from the SNK franchise, specially KOF and Fatal Fury. I’m far from being a good player, but everyday I learn something from friends or pages like this one. Even though SNK is my favorite company, I have no problem playing or discussing other fighters.
PhoeniX (KOF 2002/UM)
I’m Marijn, researcher specialized in historical linguistics, Berber and Indo-European languages. I have been playing Fighting games since 2005, and have gotten into KOF the past two years.I specialize in studying the minute details of fighting game engines.
Rex Dart (KOFXIII)
I grew up in Los Angeles, California and first got into KOF with KOF 99 Dream Match (actually KOF 98, for those who don’t know) on the Dreamcast. I’d tried playing a couple others, but KOF was the first game to really get me into 2D fighters. Living in Japan for a few years and playing in arcades helped me significantly improve my game, although I’m still only average at best. Currently, I’m living in Seattle. My username comes from MST3K.
I’m a mechanical engineer by training, novelist and video game ethusiast by heart, born in Columbus, Ohio, and living now in Toronto, Ontario. I was introduced SNK games with Samurai Shodown 2 in 1994 in a movie theater arcade and eventually got into KOF in 1996. While the KOF series has remained my favorite, I do at least dabble in others, with a preference for airdashers like Guilty Gear. Aside from fighters, I enjoy playing pretty much anything that provides a good challenge, rewards learning, and punishes mistakes, which usually leads me to RPGs and action games.
My name is Neil, aka nilcam. I am a graphic designer and web site manager for a nonprofit organization by day and a video gamer and student by night. I was a Capcom fan for years but have since come to appreciate and prefer the SNK style of fighting game.
