Cookiezi Osu Gear & ProfileCarmine Mastropierro
Some know him as Cookiezi, some know him as Shigetora, but everyone knows him as one of the best Osu! players . Within one year of creating his account in June of 2009 he reached the #1 rank globally. After reaching this achievement he began playing more casually throughout 2011, 2012, and 2013. Even with this being the case Shigetora won the 2012 Osu! World Cup playing on behalf of South Korea.
Osu! is a free-to-play rhythm game that tests your reaction time and precision skills. You have the choice between playing with a standard keyboard and mouse or a tablet. The game was launched back in mid September of 2007 and has only rised in popularity. Dance Dance Revolution lovers should try out Osu! if you’re in need of a rhythm game fix. You select a “beatmap” of a song which displays different elements like sliders, spinners and circles you must click to keep up your score. If you want to play as quickly and precisely as Cookiezi, this is the gear he uses.
