For those who don’t know me, I am SightlessKombat, an accessibility consultant and gamer without sight (GWS), mostly known for playing Killer Instinct. When I say I’m a gamer without sight, I do so as “legal blindness”, often just shortened to being “blind”, often can and does include usable and/or residual vision, which I’ve never had.
With that out of the way, time for a small update (which is definitely relevant).
Even though I haven’t been on these forums for a long time, I have been playing Ki regularly (though still at a semi-casual level), keeping my skills relatively sharp. I haven’t gone into ranked seriously for years given that I have no need to, having earned all the achievements that require playing the mode and it being filled with only the most hard ore players or players who just jump around and button mash to get wins. It’s not that I won’t fight new players or hard core ones either, I just don’t want to unduly stress myself out.
As of earlier this year, I’ve started streaming on Mixer:
and, though I’ve played KI on stream, I haven’t yet managed to get a tournament type setup together where I can commentate and not have to play simultaneously, something I’ve always wanted to try and do.
Given KI’s new resurgence
in popularity with Game Pass etc, I was wondering whether there’s any interest in putting a streamed casual set of matches together? Who knows, it may turn into a tournament-style atmosphere, but I don’t mind if it doesn’t.
