What you're seeing is not an illusion. LobosJR is no stranger to playing Dark Souls in weird ways. His streaming channel became popular when he was trying to play Dark Souls with a blindfold on. But his latest stunt may be my favourite one yet, as he uses a simple mod to flip the screen and play the game upside down.
Our Twitch embed isn't working right now (and the archive isn't yet on YouTube), so the link below will have to suffice, along with a few choice GIFs.http://www.twitch.tv/lobosjr/v/6995...
He played through a significant chunk of the game yesterday during a lengthy stream, making it all the way to Knight Artorias. I'm still not sure how he managed to take down Orstein and Smough, bosses who other players struggle to defeat when the screen looks correct.
You never cease to amaze me, Dark Souls players.
