Wow, Twitch Vs Dark Souls Just Beat The Asylum Demon

And here we were laughing at everyone failing get out of a menu.

After a week that Patrick called a “beautiful disaster”, the maniacs playing Dark Souls via Twitch chat just did something many would never have thought possible: they beat the Asylum Demon.

Sure, for regular players he’s just a tutorial obstacle. But for Twitch, stringing together enough hits to bring him down is an achievement for the ages. Those 2000 souls might be the most they can ever pull together.

If you’re wondering how a bunch of randoms sitting around keyboards pulled it off, at certain points they have been slowing the game to allow for a vote on commands, which gave everyone enough time to bring him down.

Here’s a clip of the victory, which also gives us a good look at the command voting system:


  • Cool… but if the framerate slowed enough for them to enter commands then its not really that special… although after watching them run into a wall for however long I guess it is somewhat of an achievment lol

  • I hated democracy mode in Twitch plays pokemon, but i think it works much better for this, it’s still a huge feat that they did it.

    I’m now in this for the long run.

  • Yeah its not a framerate slow down, its a forced pause, and they tally the most common commands during the pause, then rinse and repeat. Kinda not that surprising they can progress like they are now with this system.

  • It’s impressive that they got through, but it kind of takes the shine away when you realise that it’s only after lowering the bar far enough that progress could be made. Now they’re kind of stuck because they instantly get attacked each time they spawn in Firelink due to sinner status. How long until character 4 gets made I wonder…

  • Yeah watching them attack the Crestfallen warrior got a lol out of me. The pausing as they went to fireball him in the face + the chat. Priceless. They can kill him, it will just take either skill or luck with making him kill himself on a cliff

  • Framerate didn’t drop. The streamer deliberately put in pauses so once the vote succeeds for the next command then it will pause to allow for the twitch stream delay.
