I wasn't expecting that ...

In an Acclaim World Wrestling Federation game, you could spend hours tweaking your wrestler's uniform. Fed-up fans migrated en masse to THQ's postively elegant WCW games. Shorn of its would-be cash cow, Acclaim moved on to the outlaw Extreme Championship Wrestling league, whose claim to fame was liberal use of fake blood in barbed-wire cage-matches. If the worst special effect in movie history was the hand-drawn snake pit in Bruce Li in New Guinea (an actual movie, I kid you not), a good candidate for worst video-game graphics were the pixilated blood spurts in Acclaim's ECW games.

Eh, everybody thinks wrestling uses fake blood, and I don't think Nintendo.com is internationally renowned for its exemplary journalistic standards. Hell, in the next sentence, the guy misspells "pixelated," a word you'd think a video-game writer would know.

Perhaps he was making a pun:

1. Behaving as if mentally unbalanced; very eccentric

I also don't remember any barbed wire cage matches. I remember barbed wire matches and cage matches, but never a joining of the two.
