Blind Gamer Kicks Ass in Street Fighter Tournament

"Over in Spain, the Street Fighter V community held a tournament called Sonic Boom, and a blind player managed to kick some ass. Known as "Sven," he managed to use the game's sound effects to his advantage, and used Ken's rushdown strength to constantly keep the pressure on his opponent, Musashi, who was commandeering the glass cannon Akuma -- he won that bout. Although he didn't go on to win the tournament, he still plans on competing even more in the future, and I look forward to following his career.

Sven states by way of a post-game interview that he became blind as a child because of cancer, but didn't give up playing games. He heralds Street Fighter V s a milestone in sound engineering, stating that with a headset, he can hear the difference between left and right cues, and that after a lengthy period of study he has most of them down." -- Destructoid
