Dark Souls 2 is the kind of game that challenges you to bring your A game to the table. When working your way through its moody environments you generally want to equip yourself with only the best gear. One player, however, felt like plaything through the game with a Rock Band controller, and not only did he survive, he kicked some admirable butt.

After working his way through the first Dark Souls using a custom-mapped Rock Band controller, Benjamin "gbbearzly" Gwin decided to tackle the second game in the series. Check out the impressive feat below. Gwin says he's going to try to beat the game using a Wii remote next.

Some would say that Dark Souls 2 isn't that difficult, so maybe this isn't an impressive feat after all. However, if you were the kind of gamer who had trouble getting into the Dark Soul series, check out our study on whether or not gamers even like hard games.
