Naturally, Bloodborne was next on Gwin’s hit list.
Gwin’s run of “Guitarborne” included the challenging boss battle you see above, the Shadow of Yharnam. The fight is made even more treacherous by the “poor movement/camera controls” afforded by the Rock Band guitar, according to Gwin.
“Choked several times on this one,” he added.
Gwin used ConsoleTuner’s Titan One USB accessory to allow him to play Bloodborne, a PlayStation 4 game, with an Xbox 360 guitar controller. You can see his crazy button mapping above. One example of the insanity he’s putting himself through: Moving right is mapped to the controller’s tilt feature, which triggers Star Power in Rock Band games.
