  • Blind gamer, from my hometown

    http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor..._blind_gamer_1

    I don't know Soul Caliber well; perhaps I should head down to DogTags (ah the coincidence here) and get 0wned.

    I read this last night. Amazing! We need to get him playing BF2. I call dibs for 42nd!

      I'm surprised with his prowess at fighting games. There aren't many audio cues for basic movement in many of those games, so you'd assume positioning would be a nightmare. I'd think BF2 would be a much easier game to play for him, with footsteps, gunfire, and all other sounds being directional.

        I was wondering how he does it as well. I can understand the guy who plays quake, but soul caliber is a whole other kettle of fish.

          How do you expect him to know where and when to aim? First person shooters require much more coordination and awareness than fighting games. Props to him for owning people while being blind.

            Good for him, but I've played Soul Calibur 2 alot, and he could easily play as Nightmare. I could play as Nightmare without looking as well, he has button combos that keep his blade in motion continuously. And if he's playing against opponents that ask how do I move, it should really be no contest. Also, since when can I eviscerate and decapitate my opponents in Soul Calibur 2?

              The same way I do it: spray and pray!

                Not that I particularly believe this: but couldn't people just be letting him win? I mean, I only know of a few people who would take pleasure in playing against and beating a blind kid.

                  Maybe but I know a whole lot of people who wouldn't like losing to a blind guy. I think he's probably a witch.

                          If I get a chance, I'll personally go down and take the kid on in some gaming, and report back. I won't pull punches either.

                            Yeah get in his head, too: talk like the greased-up deaf guy on Family Guy. It'll be an epic battle.

                            OMG that should be a mod for a game: Cripple Fight!

                            Seriously, please do let us know how the games go, and say howdy to him from all of us at TG: GG kid!
