The MythBusters have taught us just about everything we’d ever need to know about the real world, so now they’re taking their talents to a fictional one.

This Saturday, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman will host a special video game-themed episode of their show, during which we’ll finally find out whether or not we could actually perform the same extraordinary feats as our favorite digital heroes.

FROM EARLIER: The funniest thing you’ll see today: Watch elders play Grand Theft Auto V

We’re still not sure how many myths the crew plans to bust during the special episode, but we do know that they have teamed up with id Software in order to take a look back at Doom, one of the original first-person shooters. Using Doom as a springboard, Adam and Jamie will attempt to answer one of the most commonly asked question in video game history:

“Is it really possible for someone to carry all those health packs, guns, and even a chainsaw?”

And even if some superhuman was capable of carrying that much weaponry, it has to be impossible to have each gun readily available at a moment’s notice… right? We’ll have to wait until January 31st at 9 p.m. EST to find out.

Watch the trailer for the upcoming episode below:
