You'll never be this good at games

One man, two sticks, one mental video

Seemingly Ikaruga - an immensely challenging Japanese shooter - isn't challenging enough for some people. So this robot-brained blaster-fan has taken it upon himself to double the difficulty by beating the game in two-player, all on his lonesome.

And Ikaruga isn't just a 'hold shoot and avoid enemy' game. There's two different types of bullet, black and white, and your ship can switch colour to absorb or fire each one. Watching this guy's hands is like seeing a master pianist plough through Rachmaninov, as he guides each ship through the final boss encounter, moving, switching and firing in a blur of digits.
