Man conquers Bloodborne with a guitar controller

Bearzly was Bloodborne to rock.

Video game streamer Bearzly, the man who breezed through both Dark Souls games with a guitar controller, has naturally brought his intentionally awkward controller challenges to the Souls' series spiritual successor Bloodborne. And like From's previous offerings, he's bested its harsh array of challenges.

This time out Bearzly used an Xbox 360 Rock Band guitar with the PS4 and remapped the controls to something like this:

As you can see, he moves his character with the guitar controller's gyroscopic sensor combined with the whammy bar. Camera movement is handled with that little slider thingy (sorry, I don't know what it's called), while attacks, healing, parrying, targeting and item usage are assigned to buttons along the controller's neck. As was the case with the Dark Souls games, the heavy attack button, R2, is not in play.

On his Twitch FAQ Bearzly noted that he tackles these peculiar challenges "Mostly just to challenge myself and say that I can."

Here's the beginning of Bearzly's run, though you can catch the rest here, here, and here.

For more Bearzly madness, watch him power through the first Dark Souls using a bongo controller.
