and then I win pick'em contests. Not really, though. Week 15 of last year I was 134-89; that's double-plus ungood. But I'm like, totally pumped up about getting clowned on once again, as I've inexplicably agreed to combat with greater minds than my own. Take it away, Post Game Heroes:
Super Punch Out, on the other hand, was innovative and everything the original was not. It was responsive, it was more intuitive, the characters were better, and the game was a good bit easier to play casually. For those of us that take games too seriously it allowed for the best player to distinguish himself in ways besides just beating Mike Tyson -- which only like 7 people in history have done anyways -- by keeping track of time trials and the fastest knockoutererers. I was fast.
Before I get into picks, which I won't, I also want to express a little pet peeve of mine. Conversationally when persons discuss the Punch Out games, they'll typically be like "God, Glass Joe is such a huge pussy in Mike Tyson's Punch Out." The emphasis in that kind of sentence will be placed varyingly on "God" or "pussy" or "such" or "Glass Joe" or whatever. When in reality, there is no such game as Mike Tyson's Punch Out, nor should anyone discuss "Mike Tyson's Punch Out". The official and operating title of the game is, emphasis mine, "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!". Note the exclamation points. Whenever discussing the game, you should be like "Bla bla bla about Glass Joe, bla bla bla... MIKE TYSON'S PUNCH-OUT!!" And since I don't know how an extra exclamation point operates -- I have two volumes, shout and not -- maybe you should spit on or punch or add "bitch" to whomever it is you're discussing the game with. The point being that when we're talking Mike Tyson's Punch Out, we need to honor and respect the trademarked name of the game which includes emphatic restatement of that name. Mike. Tyson's. PUNCH OUT. !!
