Guitar Hero savant demolishes Fire and the Flames while blindfolded

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

More God than Hero.

An expert Guitar Hero player has beaten Fire and the Flames while blindfolded without a single mistake.

Twitch streamer Randy Layman, who claims to have been playing Guitar hero since he was 12, conquered what is widely considered the hardest level in the game while wearing a beanie to blind himself. This is the future of esports folks.

DragonForce’s seven-minute epic is notorious in the game for its absurd pace and note spacing, yet Layman manages to not only 100% the track, but earn a Full Combo, meaning he beat the track hitting every note and without overstrumming once between notes.

He’s obviously joyous at the achievement, and frankly, he deserves to be. We’re not sure there’s any higher accolade to earn or anything left to beat when it comes to the Rhythm series. That is unless he wants to try playing the game on a selection of bananas.
