   There Are Thousands of People Trying To Play The Same Game of Pokemon UPDATING      

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 ABBBBBBK ( 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).

By Staff / April 6, 2014

Did you know the actors in Game of Thrones are, like, actual human beings? Like, just regular, normal people who hang out and have fun and aren't steeped in misery and scheming all day every day. Bizarre, right?

Article The 8 Types of Sims Players

By Andrew Bridgman / June 7, 2013

There is a clear temptation when you begin playing The Sims to simply make yourself and recreate the world around you. After all, you know yourself, but wouldn't it be great to see how a virtual version of you would react to a world where you're your own god? You can make yourself, your one bedroom apartment, and see how Virtual You compares to Real You. Can Virtual You get a job in politics by babbling in front of a mirror and telling gibberish jokes to random passers-by? Because that didn't work out so well for Real You.

Article The 10 Most Absurdly Powerful Pokemon In Existence

By Andrew Bridgman / September 25, 2013

  10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Creatures in the Pokemon World

The most incredible thing about Pokemon (beyond how many Pokemon articles the internet will tolerate) is that, somehow, humanity has enslaved them. These are super-powered animals that should have easily conquered this planet of puny homo sapiens long ago. Yet for whatever reason, they listen to our commands without question and battle each other for our own amusement. But a few of them have no excuse - they're described as so insanely powerful, it's incredible that they haven't risen up and smashed us into oblivion. These are the 10 Pokemon that are too ridiculously-strong for their (and our) own good.

 

10. Magcargo

10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Creatures in the Pokemon World

Magcargo's body temperature is approximately 18,000 degrees F. Water is vaporized on contact. If this Pokémon is caught in the rain, the raindrops instantly turn into steam, cloaking the area in a thick fog. (Sapphire)


Okay - the surface of the sun is approximately 10,000 degrees F. Which means (*adjusts tie*) MAGCARGO IS NEARLY TWICE AS HOT AS THE SUN. You know that Smashmouth song, "Might As Well Be Walkin' On The Sun?" That's more realistic than being anywhere near Magcargo, since this lava slug thing is literally ALMOST TWICE AS HOT AS THE FREAKIN SUN. SOL, THE CENTER OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM, IS PRETTY DAMN CHILLY COMPARED TO THIS SINGLE INDIVIDUAL POKEMON.

Although, just to test it out, we should probably send the members of Smashmouth to confirm.

Article 25 Incredible Pokemon Fusions

By Staff / June 3, 2013

Since anything you can imagine is already something that exists on the internet, there's a website called Pokemon Fusion, which allows you to fuse two Pokemon together into an entirely new Franken-mon. The result is usually something somewhat ridiculous-looking, if only because the pixels don't quite line up as they should. But artists from across the 'net decided to flesh out the combo-mons with full-fledged illustrations. These are some of the best.
