Choosing between a fight stick and a standard controller is a hard choice for a lot of people hoping to play fighting games competitively, but one player has decided to go in a completely different direction: A Rock Band keyboard.
During the “Revenge of the 6ix” tournament in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Dragon Ball FighterZ player Gregory Chow decided he was going to really push conventional fighting game controllers to the limit. Chow managed to win five matches, advancing to the top 8 of the 27-person bracket, with a team of Goku, Cell, and Trunks.
You can see video of one of Greg’s matches below, but can’t quite get a good luck at him tickling the ivories.

I love it when people bring gimmicks to tournaments, because you never know when that gimmick will just wipe the floor with everyone else. When I realized a lot of moves physically moved the Soulcalibur 2 fighters, I decided to try teaching myself how to play that game with the DK Bongos. I never took it to a tournament, but it got me through arcade mode, and that’s pretty good.
