This Guy Hit Level 100 in World of Warcraft Using Dance Mats

This Guy Hit Level 100 in World of Warcraft Using Dance Mats

dance-pad-325

If you thought that getting to the level cap in World of Warcraft took a while, how long would it take if you used dance pads as controllers instead of your keyboard and mouse?

5 days, 11 hours, 48 minutes and 38 seconds.

That's how long it took Twitch user Rudeism, who did exactly that. Yesterday, his quest was finally completed, and as you might imagine, he looked a bit exhausted. That's no surprise, since he made the final push over a seven hour long stream.

While this accomplishment is impressive, it's just another in the long list of games that Rudeism has conquered using alternative controllers. His Twitch profile lists his other successes, which include beating Portal and CS:GO with a guitar controller, and finishing Mirror's Edge using a steering wheel.

Rumor has it that he's going to take on Dark Souls with his dance pads next, which should be interesting.

Not bad, but I will be more impressed the moment he manages to play SingStar with the NES Zapper.

What class did he play? Arcane Mage?

Honestly, that is impressive regardless.

All the old bots used hunters because they were easy, so

I was guessing hunter. Turns out as a rogue, I find that surprising.

I used to play WoW back during Burning Crusade with a 360 controller which I had a custom controller profile to have common stuff like selecting, cancelling, tab targeting, toggle mouselook, and about 32 ability hotkeys. I used to joke with my guild-mates that I was working on setting up a profile my Rock Band drum set. Burned out around that time, but it would have been fun to do.

So, the next most impressive thing to happen will be when someone completes a pacifist run using that huge "controller" from Chromehounds, right?

I'm a veteran at Dark Souls and I can't even play it without my beloved controller (keyboard and mouse is too much for me). Using a dance pad would not only be impressive, but absolutely insane for the guy- imagine his heart rate when he engages certain bosses like Artorias or Kalameet ...... hot dang.

I'll have to keep a close watch on this guy if he decides to go through with it.

to be fair, trying to use keyboard and mouse EVEN WITH THE FIX MODS on dark souls is probably worse than trying to play drunk with a controller

Well, that's one way to break the fat-gamer-stereotype. Perhaps the wii was onto something after all with their motion control and wii-fitness :p

And for his next self-imposed torture, I mean, challenge, he'll be playing I Wanna Be The Guy ... with the Kinect.

Dark Souls? Drunk? Controller? Possible alcohol poisoning with the chance that being drunk may make you better at the game than being sober?

Have you been watching Funhaus' recent Drunk Souls episode?

VR is all about movement within gaming. Could you image a jogging simulator? Where people ran? Like, in real life?

Mind. Blown!!

After goat simulator, water simulator, black screen simulator and grass simulator I would be very surprised if nobody makes a jogging simulator.

So is nobody going to point out this?

You can't "beat" CSGO. Its a competitive round-based team shooter. There are no levels to overcome. There is no story to work through. There is no single player outside of playing vs bots. You can't beat it any more than you can "beat" basketball or "beat" chess. You can win a game of it, or even a tournament, but there's nothing to "beat".

Looked into the footage and turns out he used a Monk which actually makes a bit of sense considering how they work, class was Brewmaster.

A fair point. I honestly haven't played CS:GO much at all, so there could easily have been a story mode that I was not aware of. I just grabbed that info from the list of games he had listed as having beaten on his profile.
