Uh... I don't agree with your statement. we do not learn to play a game the same way sighted people do. If you truly believe that, tell one of your sighted friends to play looking at a wall or with their eyes closed. bet all they learned will fly out the window as soon as the visual aspect is removed. to us, It feels like we learn just like anyone else, because we don't have sight to compare it to. yes we learn how to press buttons the same way obviously, but we do not learn about game technique, character positioning, etc by looking at a screen. You also said that every fighting game has sounds for each and every action. again, I disagree. most recent game that comes to mind is mortal kombat vs dc universe. no sound indicates when it's time to do breakers or deploy rage. and there are a bunch of other stuff we do in games that's more instinct and plain practice than anything else. for example if someone's crouching in mk, how can you tell? certainly not by sound. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Clement Chou" <chou.clem...@gmail.com>

There isn't a fighting game on the market for the ps3 that doesn't let you do each and everyone of those things. lol. Every attack in street fighter IV makes sounds, as is the case with every other game from Capcom.

As for MK keeping the gameplay easy for blind people to learn... we learn the same way sighted people do, so that's not exactly a true statement. lol. Soul Calibur is easy to learn, as are games like King of Fighters, Samurai Showdown, Tekken, Dead or Alive, Virtua Fighter... etc. Jumping online, well, yes, that is simple too since people can challenge you straight out of arcade mode if your status is set to joinable, which it seems to be by default. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Yohandy" <yohand...@gmail.com>

well guess accessible was the wrong term lol. I know that no fighting game is completely inaccessible, I mean there gotta be punching sounds and the like, what I meant is what's the level of playability and complexity for the blind gamer? do focus attacks make sound when you deploy them? that sort of thing. can we easily jump online and fight some random opponent as easily as any sighted gamer would? MK's been good at keeping the gameplay extremely easy for a blind gamer to learn, but that isn't the case with most companies. when I get a fighter, my goal is to get every trophy, unlock every character, and master the game to the point where I can defeat the average sighted gamer. if this can't be done by a totally blind person, then I don't consider the game fully playable.

There are no street Fighter games that were not accessible. lol. Come to think of it, I haven't actually encountered a fighting game that isn't successful.ly playable by blind people. I haven't played it yet, but if I've heard anything at all, then I know what it's like, and it's easy to tell what's going on. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Yohandy" <yohand...@gmail.com>

I still don't have the game. I want the collectors edition, and I can't find it anywhere in this area. as a result, I had to order it online. problem is the company didn't have them in stock so now I must wait. so for whoever's played it, how's the gameplay? how accessible is the game meaning are there enough sounds to allow us to fight successfully? do menus rap and are they complex to navigate? Also if you've played online, how does that feature work? I certainly hope it's a much better online system than MK vs dc.
