Blindfolded Player Beats Punch-Out Undefeated


So we’ve already mentioned one gamer that was able to find a super cool glitch in The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time by playing blindfolded. Apparently playing games blindfolded is totally a thing. Well in further blindfolded news, YouTuber Jack Wedge managed to beat Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! blindfolded. Even more impressive, he went undefeated! Dude, that’s some dedication!

Okay, so the video is 34 minutes, but it includes a few gems including him singing ‘Rye or the Kaiser,’ which I think is only fitting. The cool thing about the video is you can tell he’s memorized the patterns. He’s not glitching or using any crazy techniques. He just knows the sounds and the characters well enough that he can react. The whole video is totally worth a watch, but if you’re really pressed for time, the proving point is at 24:00 where he sits there explaining how he’s going to beat Mike Tyson and some of the tricks he intends to use.

Some may fault Jack Wedge for not using an actual NES and cartridge. Instead, he is playing on an emulator on the Wii with a WiiMote as his controller. Jack promises in the ‘about’ section on the video to go for the full console and cartridge as soon as he gets them back. I’m excited to see what happens. There’s so much drama involved!

If you want to know how this ends, Jack beats Typson in round 3 by decision (he was SUPER close to winning by TKO). He wins at 31:30.
