February 15, 2014 at 11:44 am #37174
~17,000 players simultaneously trying to control a game of Pokemon via chat input.
This will only end in madness and tears.

So I loaded up the site and saw that they’ve been trying to play for 2 days, 17 hours. Trying to figure out where they are, I look over at the flood of input commands in chat and the occasional cry for help: “THIS ******* LEDGE” “ARE WE SERIOUSLY STILL HERE?!” “GUYS PLZ =(”
This. Wow.February 15, 2014 at 1:21 pm #37176
They’ve been trying to get past that ledge for 3 hours…

Is this Mt. Moon, or somewhere else? It’s been a good 10+ years since I’ve played Red.February 15, 2014 at 1:47 pm #37178
The route to the right of Cerulean City. They (somehow) beat Lt. Surge’s gym and are trying to get to Rock Tunnel.

The problem is that this route is full of one way ledges, which gives trolls every opportunity to screw everything up.

TPP has gone critical.
I keep finding references to the project through out the internet.
Its to a point now Kotaku has reported about the chat feature in Twitch breaking down. Not just for the TPP feed but for other feeds as well.
Fun, stuff. Let the Nerds collect for some outrageous social experiments through Pokemon.February 20, 2014 at 8:37 pm #37230GarayurParticipant
It is amazing and wonderful to watch.
The best description I have heard is
Man. This isn’t a thousand monkeys at a thousand typewriters. It’s twenty thousand monkeys at a single typewriter, and half those monkeys are screaming and desperately trying to progress while the other half throw shit everywhere. It’s wonderful.”
They just made it to the top of pokemon tower.

Hey, I was walking down past my classrooms here at my University, and we have kairne for the engineering department. It always gets defaced for events or from other faculties. But this week some one just sprayed this:

They’ve made it to the Elite Four, but seem to be getting destroyed by the time they get to Agatha.
Even the great Helix revived is no match for that old crone.

It’s over. The Elite Four are beaten. The Dome heretics and their False Prophet have been cast down. Omastar the one true God and his herald Bird Jesus have led us to victory. All praise the Helix Fossil. All praise Anarchy.
All the fun parts of life are optional.
