'I play games wrong,' says this intrepid streamer

Someone is attempting reach level 100 in World of Warcraft using a dancepad, and he's more than halfway there.

The runner is Twitch streamer Rudeism, who has built a viewership north of 1,000 with his oddball playthroughs of well known games. ("I play games wrong" is the motto on his stream page.) Past conquests have included Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on a guitar controller; Mirror's Edge with a steering wheel, and most recently, Superhot on a dancepad. (He's also working on Surgeon Simulator 2013 with a guitar.)

"Dancecraft" kicked off about a week ago, and Rudeism pushed past level 60 in his most recent stream, which is below. "I thought I was going to tire myself out by level 10, but I'm still going strong," Rudeism said earlier. His raid partners evidently have no idea who he is or what controller he's using, too.

"It's a good way to spice up World of Warcraft a little bit," he added, saying he has thought about a playthrough combining the dancepad and a guitar controller.

"I could be like a dancing bard," he mused. "Of course when I think of a bard I'm reminded of Timmy from South Park (The Stick of Truth)."

His livestream schedule streams a minimum of three nights: Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. The weekday runs are 7:30 to 10:30 pm, New Zealand time (which is 13 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern time. So 6:30 to 10:30 a.m.). On weekends, it's noon to "as long as I can go," which would be 11 p.m. ET the preceding day. Or you can just catch the archived broadcasts on your own time.
