Sweet Riff, Bro! Dude Beats Dark Souls Using the Rock Band Guitar!

You gamers make me sick! Beating Dark Souls is more than enough of a task to score you points towards your geek-cred, but some of you just seriously take it way too far.

Like this guy, Benjamin “Bearzly” Gwin, for example. Here is a guy who just beat Dark Souls using the Rock Band guitar as a controller. Seriously, his entire run is live on Twitch right now. Watch it, and I hope all of you feel like small insects compared to this man’s godly level of geekitude.

Using the Xbox 360 Rock Band guitar controller, Gwin plays with a custom map that aligns the whammy bar, fret buttons, effects switch and even the motion sensing “star power” detector with attacks and dodges from the brutally difficult game.

Once he got used to the controls, his “guitar run” only took eleven hours to complete. The final boss, Gwyn Lord of Cinder, only took three attempts.

So, think you’re the bomb at Dark Souls? Think again, buckeroo. Benjamin “Bearzly” Gwin has got you beat from now until next decade unless you can pick up a plastic guitar and shred like he can.
