Video Games Records That Are Impossible To Break
Competition has always been a fundamental part of why we game. From the oppositional style of Pong to the twin-control setup of many arcade cabinets, battling friends in local multiplayer or going online to see how you fare against the world, there’s something about pushing your mental skills to the absolute limit that brings out a certain caliber of individual.
Beating Dark Souls With A Guitar Controller
Y’know, because Dark Souls isn’t hard enough.
Not to Benjamin Gwin, anyway. Nicknamed Bearzly, Gwin took to the idea of re-mapping Dark Souls’ core controller inputs to that of a Rock Band guitar, meaning things like the frets were used for items and attacking, whilst basic camera controls were placed on the pick-up selector and whammy bar.
Weirdly, Bearzly didn’t include the ability to block in his custom setup, instead relying on dodging and sprinting away from harm to make it through in one piece. The entire run took around 11 hours, and let’s be honest, it’s never going to be broken, because nobody in their right mind would attempt to play a Souls game with a plastic instrument.
