And if you try, you’ll probably contract RSI in the process.
UKOGmonkey has had a little goal for a while. That goal: to complete Dragonforce’s Through The Fire and Flames in Guitar Hero 3. 100%. Every note.
Now, you might say: well hang on, Guitar Hero 3 has been out for yonks. Almost a decade in fact: the game launched on just about every platform under the sun in October 2007.
But what most people haven’t done is nail every single note of Through The Fire and Flames while the game speed is set to 125%. And why would you? It’s wrist shattering enough as is.
Not for UKOGmonkey, though. Not him.
It’s an exceptional effort, certainly something I could never do. That level of dexterity is physically beyond me, and I’d wager beyond most gamers.
But you know what’s more incredible? The fact that he was nailing it perfectly last week — only to miss a note just before the end, prompting a pretty spectacular (but not controller-breaking) moment of rage.
