Ironman Completes All Five Souls Games Without Taking A Hit

As tough as it is, The_Happy_Hob has just put the Dark Souls series well and truly in its place, completing all five games—the three Dark Souls, Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne—in a row. Without taking a single hit.

Just finishing them back-to-back is a Herculean task in itself (it took over 12 hours!), but doing so without taking any hits whatsoever is just wow. And it’s cool that he managed to pull it off after his last attempt ended so nicely.

Or skip to around 12:10 if you just want to see him finish the thing off and almost die of relief.

Note this isn’t the first time he’s done something like this; he’s previously completed all three Dark Souls games without taking a shot. But man, five games, phew.

So right before this you have an article that says the getting over it WR turned out to be a fake. Why anyone would trust stuff like this when there is such a HUGE profit motive in doing stuff like this and the fact that scripting tools are so cheap now (like cronusMax) where even if you can see a person playing the game it’s not guarantee they aren’t cheating.

Without someway to verify that the code itself was unaltered I’m not willing to give the guy the accolades. Oh and just cause you can watch him practice on his Twitch channel means nothing because he has to have some content to give the people that pay him and not look suspicious.

I know I’ve beaten this drum a couple of times before on previous hard runs in the past but I really wish there would be more scrutiny towards this stuff.  Especially with how many people have gotten busted in the speedrunning/high score community lately.  Not only with this stuff but just cheating in general in games, for as bad as you think it is it’s so much worse because the good scripts aren’t detectable.  I wouldn’t be surprised if 60-75% of every major gaming channel on YT/Twitch used them.
