Tag along as we meet the seriosuly skilled one-handed Battlefield 3 player “”InhumaX”. When we saw his video on Battlelog, we knew we had to fly him out to GamesCom to greet him.
– I can’t believe that I’m here. The same evening that I posted my gaming video on Battlelog, friend requests were popping up all the time, and the German Community Manager sent me an invite to GamesCom. I was like: ‘What is going on?!’
InhumaX is from Austria and made the trip to Cologne to hang out with DICE and play Battlefield 3: Armored Kill before it releases in September. After posting his gaming video on Battlelog showing how he plays one-handed, he has received a lot of new friends. Some just want to play, others are handicapped players who want to share their thoughts and tips on how to play with a disability.We step outside of the community lounge with InhumaX for a chat. He picks up a cigarette from the pouch at his kilt and lights up in a courtyard that is somehow eerily reminiscent of the plaza in Ziba Tower.
– I’ve been playing consoles with one hand ever since the Nintendo 8-bit era. That’s the easiest console to play since it only has two buttons and the D-pad. But I don’t have any problems with Battlefield 3. The only thing that’s a bit difficult is holding my breath when sniping by clicking down the stick. But I generally play any class.
Yes, yes. Never mind that. What’s up with the kilt? Yep, that’s a proper kilt he’s wearing, and totally pulling it off. He brought two of them to the show, the other one being in a blue/green pattern.
– A friend of mine bought a kilt. I thought it was cool, so I asked my girlfriend’s aunt — she makes clothes for a living — to create them for me.
If you’ve seen his video or his Battlelog stats, you know InhumaX has some serious skill. It’s great to meet a fan who has been an inspiration to other handicapped gamers. As we leave the courtyard for the bustle at the show floor, we think that we must have met one of the coolest guys at GamesCom right there.
