Cuphead is a game built to be difficult, and for some players this difficulty can be furious. Twitch streamer Jinnytty raged so hard she broke her stream.
Cuphead is a game made up of complex bosses with multiple stages. There is a certain amount of trial and error to learn how to beat them, making death a possibility for most players.
Twitch streamer Jinnytty reached the boss’s final stage and she nearly beat it before tragically dying while the boss had a bit of HP left. She… didn’t take it well.
Jinny was so close, yet so far
It would be one thing if Jinny died halfway through the boss and moved on. No problem. The real tragedy here is how close she was to beating it.
The meter above the retry option shows your progress to get through the health bar, and Cuphead is practically on top of the flag, meaning Jinny was indescribably close to vanquishing the enemy.
After a moment of contemplation and grief, Jinny’s anger boiled over and she responded to her controller.
She threw out expletives, cursed the boss and yelled, “Why don’t you die?!” And after slamming her desk for a few seconds, her entire stream dropped out.
Jinny tried to beat this boss for over 2 hours during her subathon but to no avail. This failure was the last straw for her and she stopped trying to beat it after this unfortunate death.
Her stream came back, this time on her phone instead of her PC, and Jinny watched the clip of herself raging on her PC. Her momentary anger didn’t seem to hurt her setup, and she couldn’t help but laugh at it.
We wish Jinny the best of luck with her next boss attempt. If she ever decides to fight it again, that is.
