This is the greatest thing in the history of great things.*

Sadly, my ability to get out of the way of the Tyson uppercut ain't what it used to be.

Don't beat yourself up over Tyson. The game lacks the sound of the NES version which IMHO is key in dodging Tyson's punches.

Not to mention the fact that the game runs slower than it should, thereby fatally throwing off your timing.

Ah, but you have to realize, I used to spend most of my playing of Punch-Out with the volume of my walkman set on 11, so I would key in on the shoulder dip more than the foot stomp.

To this day I still do the CD player/headphones thing with my PS2 unless I'm playing GTA.

What's with the "cheat mode" toggle? The only cheat I remembered was pressing SELECT between rounds to replenish energy.



Check out my website; and my online journal...in English and Al Bhed. Seriously.

How do you throw the 'star' punch? I can't seem to figure it out.



I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: while you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits." --- President Jed Bartlett, The West Wing

"Start" will throw the uppercut. I think it's Enter in this case.

My timing's off due to it being a bit slow, as others have mentioned. I used to amaze and impress my friends with my ability to get through the whole game without taking a punch.

Just have to add...I'm saddened that this is the NES version, and not an arcade port. Meaning - no Pizza Pasta! :(
