While they may not have got the massive DLC announcement they wanted out of The Game Awards, Elden Ring players have still had new content to dig into, with the long-awaited Colosseum DLC providing a fresh challenge for those who consider themselves PvP masters.
However, for the most hardened of warriors, this battle arena clearly isn’t proving difficult enough, with the world of streaming, infamous for producing the likes of drawing pad and one-handed runs through the game’s bosses, already starting to feature the likes of dance pad Colosseum sessions.
One of the streamers who’d attempted such a feat is MissMikkaa, who has spent the past week or so battling through one of the most interesting Elden Ring playthroughs of all time, taking on two versions of the game simultaneously.
Have you ever managed to defeat Elden Ring’s Radahn with a handicap like this?
While the streamer struggled a little at the start of the run, spending multiple streams being tormented by fall damage and missed opportunities to heal as she battled Margit, she’s since got the hang of handling a dance pad and controller at the same time.
MissMikkaa’s latest six-hour-stream of the run is a testament to this fact, featuring encounters with a couple of the most infamous bosses in The Lands Between, both of whom regularly prove difficult to best for those whose runs don’t contain any extra wrinkles.
The first of these to hit the kill list was the Draconic Tree Sentinel, whom the streamer first encountered around an hour and a half into the stream, and ended up battling for half an hour straight.
During this time, MissMikkaa died a number of times, usually as a result of an ill-timed heal or a dodge executed with the wrong control scheme for the intended screen, though, as you can see in the clip below, she was eventually able to get all of her movements synced up and fatally wound the mounted monster.
Following some time spent exploring and preparing for the battle, Starscourge Radahn entered MissMikkaa’s crosshairs around the four hour mark of the stream.
Thus began the double-screen Radahn Festival, with the streamer quickly succumbing to her first death and quipping: “This guy might be harder than I thought.”
Each expiration saw her get closer to besting the giant warrior or discover a new attack to avoid like the plague, eventually leading to victory over him, despite a last minute scare when he launched a rare attack before MissMikkaa could land the final blow on the PS5.
While she might not achieve it before Christmas arrives later this week, the streamer is still on track to accomplish her goal of completing the entire game using this bizarre setup.
