What's poppin' ? For those of you who have been keeping track of me ( which would only be a few of you ) I haven't been able to post in a because I've been busy prepping for finals at school so I've taken time out of my schedule to do a quick entry in the Boss Files. Since my current gen consoles have been going through the Frankenstein process of being brought back to life, I jacked my friend's SNES and all of his games (actually he outright asked me if I wanted them and I said yes) which have given me the time to streamline pure uncut nostalgia to my eyeballs as well as play some true gems I missed out on the first time around such as Earthbound. But the subject of this entry being Super Punch-Out!! I'm gonna talked about the latest pain in my ass.
I've heard that the Punch-Out!! Series was known for being notoriously difficult, so I gave it a shot. After making a punching bag out of Gabby Jay and Bear Hugger, I battled the formidable Piston Hurricane, who�s basically Piston Honda in terms of his move set. After breaking his virtual jaw, I was on my way to the title bout. When I got there I basically shat myself in fear for one reason...
Boss: Bald Bull An artist's kickass depiction of my epic rematch with Bald Bull
After learning his patterns there was noting for me to be afraid of. I also know how to stop his Bull Charge dead in its tracks. just a simple punch to the gut on his third hop. WTF!!! Why didn't anyone tell me this! Granted, I found out about the Bull Charge's Achilles' Heel after I barely beat him and it would have been a helluva lot less satisfying if I wussed out and went to GameFAQS for answers. This was a battle that was whatever the gaming equivalent of David and Goliath was. Okay, that's a bit of a stretch, more like the match between Muhammad Ali and Sonny Liston (Liked the boxing reference?) The bull had his payback coming for a while now and now I close with this
P.S Thank you for allowing me to waste your time.
