A Twitch streamer has proven that despite real-life challenges, he can still tackle extremely difficult games such as Dark Souls 3.

The streamer, appropriately named 'HandicapableOne,' was able to defeat one of the game’s most difficult bosses 'Slave Knight Gael' during a February 11 broadcast.

After a grueling five hours of trial and error, the streamer overcame the boss in dramatic fashion. When it was all said and done, he shouted “yes!” just like any gamer would after finally beating a difficult part of a game.

“That took way too long,” he admitted, seemingly disappointed in his victory.

Slave Knight Gael is considered to be the final boss of the entire series, and is only available as part of the Ringed City DLC.

While anyone would be psyched by defeating such a boss, what makes HandicapableOne's performance so impressive is the fact that he pulled off the win using only his chin.

“I have a software that allows me to assign keyboard keys to the controller,” he explained. “I do that so I don’t actually use the controller’s buttons. I have the left joystick for movement and dodging.”

Additionally, he also makes use of the D-pad and right joystick on the controller, which is elevated so he can use it with his chin.

This isn’t the first challenging game HandicapableOne has undertaken, either: In previous streams, he conquered the first two Dark Souls games and even the rage-inducing Jump King.

Notably, his Jump King victory took a whopping 66 hours to complete - but it was worth every minute, as the winning moment was viewed over 85,000 times.

“That was the hardest game I ever played in my life,” he laughed after finally knocking Jump King off his list.

HandicapableOne's next challenge is Cuphead.

Once the streamer is finished with Dark Souls 3, he plans to take on the infamous 2D platforming game Cuphead.

We can’t wait to see how he deals with all the obstacles that will be coming his way when he sinks his teeth into that title.
