Mike Tyson’s Punchout will turn 30 next year (Oh yeah, you read that right). But even now people are still discovering new things about this game…or at least one new thing. YouTuber midwesternhousewives has discovered a cool little easter egg recently. The video below below details the findings, but basically this guy figured out there is a visual cue in crowed for when to throw knock-out punches on Piston Hondo and Bald Bull. Normally I would tell you to throw out easter eggs you find 29 years later as they have likely expired and are disgusting but this on is worth keeping around (wink). Enjoy the video.
Below is a 34 minute video of Jack Wedge beating Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out blindfolded. Well not blindfold, just with a Boston Bruins touque pulled over his eyes while facing the opposite direction (which we all know is way easier). Before we all jump on Jack for just memorizing a fight pattern it is important to know: Whereas the first thirteen fighters have jab patterns that players can memorize and master, Tyson is an incredibly tough challenger to defeat with two eyes, let alone blindfolded. That’s because one hit from Tyson knocks you down (three knockdowns and you’re out) and his punches are often random. -Gamespot.com So this is a lesson for all you youngsters out there! If you sit around for hundreds of hours playing the same game over and over again, you may one day be able to beat that game blindfoled and be as famous as Jack whatshisname in this video below!

You may know it as either Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!, or as simply Punch-Out!, but I know it as the best boxing game ever released on the Nintendo Entertainment System. This game seemed incredibly hard on first play. It would take countless tries to figure out each opponents move-set, attacks and counters. Timing was everything! The first distributed version of Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out! featured Mike Tyson as the final boss to defeat. Knockout Tyson and you would become Champion of the World! However, by 1990, Nintendo’s license to use Mike Tyson as a character and marquee name had expired. The game was re-released as Punch-Out! and featured Mr. Dream (a white Mike Tyson with the same move-set) as the final combatant. Rumor has it that Nintendo did this not because Tyson’s contract expired, but were concerned about his image after Tyson was incarcerated for the rape of Desiree Washington.
