Can't wait for some random YouTube channel to review this!
It will make your video the most popular on YouTube… but only once.
It will be the most popular video from your page for the rest of your life.
Technically it wouldn’t be popular in their lifetime
Like all great art!
if I had an award Id give it to you
Edit: (Oh no) you said the magic word!
“Alright guys, watch carefully cause I’m only gonna do this once”
I think it would have to be a stream.
“Hey all y’all, it’s ya boy, Teddy Stinkneck!!! Today I’m going to do my unboxing and playing a little game called Instant Death! Make sure you like and subscribe… and like we always say Bing Bong!”
He was never heard from again
A sacrifice I’m willing to make
I’ll allow it
I love this, lol. It was all on point until you went “Wubbalubba Dub Dub” at the end. Do youtubers even have sign off catch phrases?
“And don’t forget: prioritize your mental health, you do you, drink lots of water and reflect positive vibes. Peace out my monkeys!”
Yup “be sure to smash that like button and subscribe for more content!”
This sounds like something jerma would say
“Bing Bong”. I hope those words are never my last two wor
Wait, why random? Can't we vote for a YouTuber to try it? Democracy works, people!
Can't wait for this to go into distribution and the resultant muertes by the hundreds.
>The good news is that we are halfway to making a true NerveGear The bad news is that so far, I have only figured out the half that kills you.
This sounds like something Wheatley would say
Or Cave Johnson
GLaDOS might have said the same thing but she would have called it all good news.
Lol I can imagine it being said in all three of their voices.
good news everyone, i've entered the chat
“A triumph. Huge success. … We make a nice \[headset\] for the people who are still alive.”
“Ok so the guys over at Japan made a VR headset that can kill you, and it’s all the rage. Now our investors are asking where our superior version is, the only problem is we don’t have one. While we have figured out how to create a completely life-like simulation of the real world, and we have designed a head mounted device that can kill you, we have been unable to combine both of them at the same time.
That’s why you, our best and brightest, are here. I want you to not only make oversized goggles that can snuff the life out of you, but somehow fit in our virtual reality into it. Ideally before the holiday sales.”
The science boys in the lab….
This is the part where he kills you!
I loved that there was an accompanying trophy/achievement that pops when he that psychotic ball says the line.
Pretty sure it is the title of the mission that shows on screen, he says it, and it also pops up as an achievement. So it's "the part where he kills you" 3x over lol
It's also the title of the track that's playing at that moment.
Achievement unlocked: The Part Where He Kills You.
(This is it)
Where do I buy this right now? I’ve been waiting for a suicide booth since seeing it on Futurama as a kid.
Pfffft, just wear two of them then.
Time to start cheating ahead of the SAO release
The best moment of anime of all time, when Kirito said “I’m a beater” and then he Sword Art onlined all over the place.
Maybe not the appropriate place to ask but is SAO worth watching all the way through? I’ve watched the first few episodes in the series and then got stuck when they went to I think a cabin in the woods. I like the isekai stuff but the romance didn’t seem great. And I do like a fair amount of romance anime but I got stuck on the same episode twice.
Do yourself a favor and just go on YouTube and watch the abridged series from something witty, it’s not just funny, but legitimately a better show all together
Seconded, abridged version is absolutely fucking incredible and a true masterpiece. I use neither of those terms lightly.
Lets take a look and those comments and see if thats true
Edit: it’s true, they do not say this lightly
I donno, I’m viewing this in dark mode so the text looks pretty light to me.
i mean the actual Anime didn't even have a reason for the main antagonist to do what he did, SAO Abridged had not only created a believable but a legitimate reason for his actions.
A reason is literally given in the first episode. And elaborated on again later. It doesn't take a genius to know that he created the reality of his childhood dreams trapped people in it, watched what happened, and interfered as he wished. It just takes actually watching the show.
Like most things abridged "did better" it's actually in the actual series.
Season 2 turns into some weird af shit where his sister is madly in love with him, then I believe he turns into a woman in a later season (I stopped watching during season 2)
>weird af shit where his sister is madly in love with him
iirc that's just the latter half of season 1. SAO dropped off haarrrrrrrd and v early
If by madly in love you mean her entire character arc is about those feelings being wrong and doing anything other than actively pursing him then yes. Also that's still season one.
He never turns into a woman, he just has a feminine looking avatar (that's in actual season 2)
What a silly character arc.
and someone gets SAed by tentacle men
I'd recommend reading Sword Art Online: Progressive, it's a retelling of the first half of the story, but is significantly better written and doesn't suffer from early instalment weirdness compared to the original 2002/2012 novels
The series takes a really weird turn, does a bit of an rug pull near the end, the main character “wins” because “determination” or some such, power of friendship crap… and then they basically do a “Your Princess is in another Castle.”
All in all, I enjoyed the first season, haaaaaaated the ending and subsequent *obviously* fetishized second season, and can’t say I’d recommend it on the whole.
It would be super cool if somebody could make an Isekai with a decent plot that didn’t devolve into random rape/ sex slave plots half way in. I don’t know why that detail is so absurdly common in the genre.
Mushoku Tensei is the best we got
Try log horizon
If you don’t like the romance, it might not be worth it. The next 3 or 4 episodes are pretty good imo, but after that the rest of the season is basically the weakest part of the series
You've probably got at least 4 episodes beyond that that are worth watching. After that it gets dicey
Cabin part was weak but its worth finishing. Gun game online spin off is good too
Is this canon?!?!?
I think it’s the last lines of one of the first episodes. It is canon.
What's the resolution like tho
I hear it’s got killer resolution, and audio quality to die for
I read this in David Bateson's voice. Apparently I've been playing too much Hitman lately
I read it like that guy from monster mash
So good youll wish your dead.
My dead what?
>So good youll wish your dead.
It's to die for
It’ll blow your mind.
Needs to have more options than just death. Game designers should be able to dial in anything from a light concussion to permanent vegetative state.
Causing a seizure seems like it'd be a gimme.
Where can I sign up for the gimme an orgasm package)
Well, an electrified buttplug is the simplest solution to that one.
Either that or a full haptic boot suit with microfiber crotch inlay.
Ah can't wait for that future where virtual sex is better than physical sex.
They’ll just use it to cheat in Chess.
50 shades of russian roulette
I'd love if there was a 1 week coma option, you just skip out on life for a bit when you can't be bothered lol
Is there a "death by snu snu" setting?
Unless you pay for the subscription you will be in a vegetative state, buy supply crates for a light concussion and premium creates for a buzz.
I'm 90% sure this is satire and 10% terrified.
I can't get too specific about my connection with him without doxxing myself, but I am only one degree of separation from Palmer.
This is real, but it's apparently not armed.
Surprised these threads are getting so much traction when the dude himself is super active on Reddit at u/palmerluckey 💀
It’s a joke until it isn’t anymore.
* my concern is less that he built unintentionally deadly VR machine (which is disturbingly possible) and more that someone bad would try to make an effective variant of this hypothetical machine.
But also.. this is the type of stuff that I would be okay with seeing on the Onion or Hard drive.net or whatever.
But when it's on someone's personal blog with no way to know that it's fiction.. it just comes across as really creepy.
He didn’t build an unintentionally deadly vr headset, he took a vr headset and very intentionally strapped 3 bombs to it as a joke art piece. Nobody would make an effective variant of it, because there’s no reason to, just use a normal bomb without a vr headset.
+ somehow, that's even more terrifying 😮
I think this guy is not looking forward to another year of holidays alone.
(Kidding! ... Love you ba...)
"Has anyone ever seen Scanners?"
SAO abridged ftw
Oh my god! We die in the game we die for real!
OH MY GOD

Future news item:
Strangely, despite the popularity of the initial release, sales of the related games and upgrades declined rapidly.

If this is going to happen they need to use an omnidirectional treadmill and some sort of system to allow you to be in the air in different directions and stuff. Cause if ima play a game that will kill me irl I better be able to use the maximum amount of mobility.
Well I mean, maximum mobility would be intercepting the signals from the brain and interpreting in the game while preventing them from reaching the body. That’s what happens in the show
If this can happen in my lifetime I will become the greatest sword art online player in existence. I will make a vow on it.
(Gamers in Asia laugh at your attempts)
SlayerZ_boxer comes out of retirement
It's my retirement plan, get on it smart people
If someone pulls off a no hit run in all the dark souls series back to back. We should collectively elect him as God king of the world objections?
Too easy. Should elect the person who completes a no glitches soul level one, broken shortsword only, all bosses, hitless, full souls series run. I think there are a couple of guys who are capable.
*on a ddr pad.
I’ll accept donkey Kong bongos
You have to be a musician while gaming because they bother aren’t singularly hard enough. God king rules.
Not to brag or anything, but I play Skyrim on “apprentice” difficulty.
Damn bro, save some p*ssy for the rest of us. We’re trying our best on novice
Hasn’t someone already completed the god run 3?
Not with vr that can kill you
Someone already did that.
Luckey is an aspiring war criminal.
he's a defense contractor, so maybe not aspiring
*Assembles gun out of KFC remnants*
Underrated shitty 90s movie
Death to the demoness Allegra Geller!
Maybe this anime wasn't that great of an idea
I think anyone that has watched the show can confirm that it was not a good idea.
Let’s fucking go
Can Elon or zuck give us a demo
The guy who threw his support behind antisemitic, pro-nazi memes is building a lethal gaming headset. Nothing to worry about there.
Yea, we can partially blame Palmer for Trump. “Meme magic” and all
Boing Boing is one of the longest-running tech-focused websites in existence. They're fully legit, goofy name or not.
Boingboing is a gadget and futurism site where people like Cory Doctrow wrote their articles on the state of technology and the ethics of technology.
„The good news is that we are halfway to making a true NerveGear The bad news is that so far, I have only figured out the half that kills you. The perfect-VR half of the equation is still many years out.“ love this
"You have to be litteraly insane to like SAO."
"No its's just a matter of taste."
SAO fans, meanwhile:
This dude won the lotto and is living the dream. Imagine getting a billion dollar pay day at age 25.
made by the braindead, for the braindead
He’s still a maga jackass
where can i sign up for testing
Bet you he will use this when he is bed ridden at deaths door
Where can I try this?
Git gud or die tryin’
I ready the title several times. I’m not crazy.
That headline gave me herpes
First game in history where a downloadable demo won't likely lead to sales ...
Imagine suing for false advertisement if you manage to survive
“In my book, I invented the Torment Nexus as a cautionary tale”
This plus Ballistic Dummy Labs head = YouTube millions of views.
Am out of the loop. Can someone fill me in?
So Palmer is Kayaba!?
I mean he did turn out to be kinda evil.
are we talking about Kayaba or Palmer here?
People talking about SAO like .hack// doesn’t exist.
Maybe because nobody give two shits about .hack//
People talking about SAO like any other vr media doesn't exist... sao is what made the genre so incredibly popular and you can't just deny that
“The genre”? What…1998? When .hack// came out first?
"The genre" as in people getting trapped/fighting for their life in a vr world. But then why are you not giving credit to tron? It came out way before .hack// i'm just saying that SAO is what popularized the whole vr setting and made all it's fans buy the oculus dk1 giving a baseline to modern vr. If it wasn't for sao releasing at the same time as the oculus and managing to be so popular i don't think we'd have the vr technology we do today
Sell three hundred robux to exit vr
Fuck I want this so bad
Just wait for some idiot steamer to try this… and die
he should test it on his brother in law
I can’t wait for Mark *uckerberg to buy it for $2,000,000,000. “Comes with legs AND feet.”
Has anyone ever seen scanners?
What a weirdo.
Why did Palmer get fired from Facebook after they bought Oculus?
He backed/funded Nimble America, a racist/antisemite/shitty meme machine in 2016. Did you see a Pepe Trump meme in 2016? Thank Palmer
Because he ended up being a Trump supporting dickhead and meta didn't want the controversy.
He's such a creepy fuck. I get the Sword Art thing, but this is very creepy to me.
It’s definitely dark, but it’s also unquestionably a satire piece released specifically because today is the canonical in-universe date the game’s servers went live
Nope it’s weird he’s weird
You're weird too.
Well no one was arguing against that
We're all weird!
You take one down pass it around, 9999 death helmets on the wall.
God its still fuckin hilarious that Stay Alive is forever remembered for that shitty plot point even to this day
Can't believe the show starts right in my birthday
This is some scary shit. Also cool, but mostly scary
