Mk 9 Kenshi played by an actual blind guy
06/30/2012 07:49 PM EDT
Hi all,
I just thought I'd share this little match I recorded of me playing as Kenshi on MK 9. Please do not let this turn awkward as I'm just an Mk fan who happens to be blind. No big deal. Just wanted to share how glad I am to have learned this game!
SO check it out and enjoy.
Btw, it's my first ever video on youtube.

Click here to watch.
Apologize for not making it a clickable link. I'll upload moe once I recorded more matches. [MOD EDIT: The link is now clickable]

Edit: SO I recorded a few more videos. These kind of explain how I go about playing the game. I did the best I could because it's really hard to explain how I do it. Here's the link to my channel.

Amazing, and congrats for overcoming disadvantage.

How do you actually play? I'm intrigued.
Thanks to MINION for taking my Siginity!

Hey thanks for checking it out!
Well, the thing about this game is that the sound effects help a lot. I have a set of speakers in each side of my tv, which let's me know when I, or my opponent is to the left or to the right of the screen. If you listen, you can tell how each fighter's grunts and battlecrys come from where ever each fighter stands. As for combos, I come here and read the button configurations and then I listen to how they are performed on youtube, and finally, I go and try them out on practice mode.
I play online a lot too, but I don't have access to my PSn account like I have on my computer. Which is to say, I use a screen reader, but my ps3 doesn't have that.

This is really an outstanding achievement. Congratulations on learning how to play this game without the use of your eyes! I don't think I would have the patience to go through all that.

Thanks again for checking this match out. It wasn't that bad either. I had this game since the day of release and was able to pick it up pretty fast. It's just that now I figured out how I could record some gameplay vids to share with everyone.
I'm on the process of recording going up the arcade latter with Cyrax, Kratos, Scorp, Sub and Kenshi.

Wow just wow. Brilliant man. Could you be the guy who played against the team during the times of Deadly Alliance ? I read a lot about that event. Man you set an example for me. I am pretty sue your talents don't stop here. Good luck and stay safe.

Not to sound like an asshole, but I don't see any proof of you being blind in real life. :|

Gotcha, well I can't wait to see it, man. The gameplay was great. I was just watching it though waiting to see if we get to see you actually on the other side of the controller.

I edited my main post with the url to my channel since I uploaded some videos attempting to explain how I do it. You can also see me with the controller this time.

Wow I didn't think this thing would pick up like it did, but I'm happy people are checking it out.

TO the guy if asked about the Deadly Alliance thing, no that wasn't me. Although I'd love to participate in a tourny just for the hell of it. No way I could beat those guys that can really play though.
Well, I uploaded another Kenshi video and I can be seen playing. Btw, I hope I'm not spamming you all with these videos. Also, thanks to whoever made the urls into links!
Here's the video. Enjoy!
New video!

MOD EDIT: You're welcome. However, this thread will be moved to the Gameplay & Matchmaking Forum later on. I'm leaving this message here so that people can see it and be informed in advance about it.

Thanks man! I really enjoy playing this game.
And yeah, I go by the sounds of the combos being performed and how the players move really fast across the screen. With that I could tell how that Cyrax player was mixing different combos and really pressuring the other guy with those bombs.
Speaking of which, I have another video. It's none other than Cyrax.
Please help in putting this url into a clickable link again as I don't know how you guys do it.

Cyrax clip

At Killswich, thanks dude. And hope you checked the videos in my channel where I did my best to explain how I go about playing.

Alright, I have to ask this:


If you're blind, how exactly are you able to read the messages on the forums?

Hey thanks for that. I meant to reply to that but, I went on a trip and now I'm here visiting my girlfriend's family.
But yes, I use a screen reading software installed in my computer to access, read and navigate everything.
Anyway, thanks again for checking out my vids, those who did anyway. More to come once I'm back home. So I found this article about another guy who went to a local MK tournament. Just thought I'd post it in here. Check it out. Storms from test your might interviewed this guy. blind guy at an MK tourny

Welcome back! Good to know MKO's proficient blind MK player is alive and kicking.

Clickable linky for part 2 of Metalhead's Cyrax gameplay.

I'm still amazed by your ability to play Mortal Kombat by sound. You give me faith in myself to still be able to play my favorite game using my hearing, if I should ever lose my sight.

Still, sorry that you have to be blind, Metal.
