YouTuber and Twitch streamer ‘Bandoot’ showed off his absolutely insane abilities in Beat Saber, and had the best reaction after conquering a very difficult song.

If you’re looking for a game for your shiny new VR headset, look no further than Beat Saber.

Best described as a blend between Guitar Hero and Star Wars, players are given two sabers and have to slice the music notes as they zoom on by – something that’s a lot harder than it sounds.

Beat GamesBeat Saber can get intense quick.

Bandoot hit the 1,000-hour mark in Beat Saber, which is no small feat no matter which way you slice it, and was able to show off the skills he learned along the way by taking on a song called Boogie Woogie Splatter Show, which, in case you’re wondering, is not a song found in the base game.

He played the song on Expert+ difficulty, which is the highest in the game and is a gigantic leap from Expert, which is the selection right before it.

While he didn’t hit every note, he blew viewers away with his sheer speed, and the fact he didn’t fail the song from the get-go. 

In the end, he was relieved to have finally gotten past this barrier and celebrated with his chat.

“Yo, let’s go,” he exclaimed. “I did it! You guys were here! Yo! I’m insane. Finally, after all these years of trying to pass it, every single time I’ve tried playing it today, today’s the day I finally passed it.”

Beat Saber is considered to be one of the best VR games out there, and the fact it’s available on every platform makes it extremely accessible. 

It’s worth mentioning that the song Bandoot played will only be available on PC through the use of mods. If you are playing on PS4 then you’ll have to rely on official soundtracks as DLC for new songs.

Bandoot is very well-known in the Beat Saber community, and streams it quite often so if you’re looking to be amazed even more then look no further.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
