Shuhei Yoshida is the President of Sony's Worldwide Studios. He's also a stupidly massive From Software fan, and counted Dark Souls and Demon's Souls as his favourite games of the last generation. So his being a massive fan of Bloodborne makes sense on many levels.
The fact that he's so goddamn good at it makes less sense.
On Japan's NicoNico livestream, Shuhei Yoshida was invited to come along and play Bloodborne live. He opted to play the Cursed Pthumerian Defilement chalice dungeon, and was recorded fighting the Watchdog Of The Old Lords. If you've fought this boss — I haven't — apparently it's ludicrously difficult and is known as one of the most brutal boss fights in Bloodborne.
And Shuhei Yoshida just totally coasts through it.
I mean seriously, live. With all the pressure. Nerd cred on the line. With hordes of fans watching, just waiting for him to screw up. To completely destroy one of the game's most difficult bosses in that environment — that's pretty cool.
I'm impressed. I couldn't even beat The Cleric Beast first time in our Kotaku livestream.
