We interrupt your regularly scheduled Tumblr scrolling to tell you…
TWITCH PLAYS POKEMON GEN 5 IS COMING!!!
The human race has collectively gathered to simultaneously control one character to play Pokemon, and has succeeded in beating the game…FOR THE FOURTH TIME!!!
For those of you who don’t know,
do you live under a rock or something? Twitch Plays Pokemon is an event where thousands of people go onto the website Twitch to use the chat device as a controller for a game of Pokemon. This makes even the most mundane tasks, like cutting down a tree, insanely difficult. Hours of the game consist of the character of the game walking around in circles.
Despite this however, the “Hive Mind” of Twitch Plays Pokemon has beaten Pokemon Red, Crystal, Emerald, and Randomized Fire Red. And they are about to take on the challenge of beating Pokemon Platinum. Needless to say, I am hype.
I’ve spent a long time just following the lore created by the Hive Mind, never actually taking part in the amazing adventure that is Twitch Plays Pokemon. :(
But in 5 days, they ban together once again to play Pokemon Platinum. School will obviously get in the way of me keeping up with it as much as others do, but Lord Dome damn me if I’m going to miss out on the action this time. >:(
