So here’s something: thousands upon thousands of people are playing a game of Pokemon Red. The same game of Pokemon Red. At the same time. Controlling the same individual character.
They’re doing this through Twitch.tv - where someone’s set up an emulator that takes input from chat commands (currently recognizing directional pad options, A, B, and Start). Naturally, this is pretty chaotic (two Pokemon are named JLVWNNOOOO and ABBBBBBKO because EVERYONE’S TRYING TO PRESS BUTTONS AT ONCE). It’s sorta the ultimate backseat gaming experience - people are desperately trying to get the main character where he’s trying to go, in spite of the hordes of people who just wanna screw around (and watching them try to deal with shopkeeps and item usage is a sight to behold).

I’ve still got a fair way to go before I start making pacts with other-dimensional beings.
Ah, you might have some catching up to do… What can I say? It has been a pretty slow few days at uni…
