Default Week 2 Alt: Punch-Out!!

Get your fisticuffs on, ladies and gentlemen. Those of you who prefer not to talk about Metal Gear Solid 3 and its slow-ass, pretentious gameplay may instead revel in the merriment of punching dudes. All versions are game here, whether the final bout is against Mike Tyson or merely the uninteresting Mr. Dream.

The tolling bell you hear means the first round has begun.

I'll be emulating this one, using my PS2 controller. The control setup? The right analog stick to move/dodge, and L3 and R3 for the punching.

I <3 emulation.

I never found Piston Honda to be all that difficult. You could basically fight him the same way you'd fight most of the other boxers in the game, by dodging their attacks and then countering when they're stunned. I had a lot more trouble with people like Don Flamanco or King Hippo that needed a trick to defeat.

Of course, once you know their tricks, they go down like bitches.

That's funny, I played this game last night before realize it was the week 2 alt. I made it up to the second Piston Honda fight, but he beat me and I was too annoyed to try a second time. I'll probably throw down again and see if I can't at least make it to Sandman before getting whomped.

Man, this game is still really fun after all these years. I do get a bit annoyed when I run out of hearts, though.

I still have my punchout calander. I'll see if I can scan it in 2 parts. It's too big to fit on my scanner.

I'm off to scan!


Edit: Ok it didn't fit on the scanner. but, I was able to take a picture with my digital camera. Sorry about the flash.

That's one freaky-looking Mac in the corner, there. What are the tips, anyway? "Talk to Everyone"?

Some of my favorite things about this game as I am playing it:

1. Stereotypes
2. pressing select between rounds for a pep talk
3. The sound the coach makes when he is talking
4. hilarious things the opponents say
5. censoring the Russian and making him addicted to soda
6. the way the guys wobble to the canvas as they fall (classic)
7. King Hippos paints falling down
8. N**ga stole my bike (I feel bad, like it's racist but damn if that clip isn't funny)

call it a guilty pleasure

The single best thing about Punch Out!!! is the music that plays on the password screen. It is one of the top 5 greatest video game songs ever.

I am NOT talking about the internet racist version.

This is the only way I have ever beat Mr. Dream/Tyson. I did it once and decided that was good enough for me. Never TKO'd that dude.

Great choice for the fun club this week! I'll be sure to play a little some time for sure. This is a game I have played a lot every couple of years, so I probably won't delve too deeply into it this time. Although, maybe I should try to finally KO Mr. Dream!

Yeah the version I was talking about was the YTMND version.

I'll post it but only with 2 warnings

1. it's pretty racist
2. it will ruin that song for you forever

it would be a lot funnier if it was like "that guy stole my bike" and I didn't have to feel all racist every time I watch it.

so here it is for the few that missed it as an internet phenomenon

As always Mr Parash may delete this if he finds it offensive and I won't shed a tear

that's actually pretty awesome, rhythmically, at least. totally makes me want to make a glitchy drum and bass remix to the original track.
i really do love that track. hell, all the music in this game is filled with great hooks.

I saw this Punchout inspired rap on Kotaku today and it seemed like serendipity.

I just replayed this about a month ago so I am not going to do so again, but Bald Bull still pisses me off. I know the secret and I can beat him, I just hate the bastard.

Soda Pop Pinsky for me. I can beat everyone else up to him but as soon as I get to him I'm out. Furthest I ever got was Mike Tyson but I never could beat him.

Ben1842 -

What are those cards from?

What are the two cards with all of the holes in them? Are you to put your fingers through and make it look like Glass Joe is some sort of anatomical freak? I don't get it.

I think Soda Popinski is the only reason that I even knew what Communist Russia was when I was a kid and hated it.

Well, I mean, before Zangief.

Those are from the Topps Nintendo trading cards from the late 80's (88 or 89 I think). Those spots aren't holes, they're silver stuff you can scratch off in order to win some stupid game. It wasn't a contest with a prize or anything, it was just a card contained game that I don't remember the rules to. I did used to have the whole set of those cards though.

Perhaps my memory is wrong since it's been a long time, but I believe the rules for each of those game cards were located on the backside of them. They were always sorta like "scratch off three punches before you scratch off 2 KO's to win." But winning never really meant anything. For some reason I didn't want to "waste" them so I never got around to scratching any of them off. Unless I had doubles, but I never had money to buy them so I only ever got like 3 packs total.
