German streamer HandOfBlood breaks new ground in the arms race of gamers with increasingly ridiculous controllers.Influencers recently played using the infamous and challenging Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy. Motion controller embedded in floppy foam hammer. A black cauldron like the main character of the game.
It must be emphasized that this is not “overcoming it in real life”. This requires the same level of strength and durability as an Olympic kayak or Paralympic rower, as well as an indestructible hammer and neglect of insurance liability. No, this is just the latest entry in the gamer’s prestigious pedigree. strange Controllers such as Anna Ellsworth playing Elden Ring on the harp and SuperLouis 64 working on various Souls games with the Ring Fit motion controller.
The video consists of HandOfBlood occupying his (obviously too small) cauldron and GettingOverIt gameplay projected onto the green screen behind him. He gives it an old college attempt, but the non-ideal conditions of his setup are really at the expense of them.
“It really works. It’s not just sitting in sweatpants and sitting in front of a computer and playing with an ultra-lightweight Extreme Pro Mouse,” he shouts early in the video.
As someone whose job is mainly to wear sweatpants and sit in front of a computer, I’d like to say that sometimes it’s really difficult, is that okay?
It takes about 36 minutes for HandOfBlood to overcome the first obstacle in the game. Deadwood players must overcome to propel a small cauldron Hammerman using the game’s legendary unorthodox controls. After that, HandOfBlood increases discomfort and provides advice to the audience. “People are always sitting straight in front of the computer,” he says. “Get an ergonomic chair … or a kettle.”
He hasn’t gotten too far into Getting Over It, but HandOfBlood certainly spares the effort of the champion and it’s really fun to watch the whole video.
