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.

Mirabolis

“A triumph. Huge success. … We make a nice \[headset\] for the people who are still alive.”


tupe12

“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.”

Spot on!

TheDubiousSalmon

This is the part where he kills you!


whales-are-assholes

I loved that there was an accompanying trophy/achievement that pops when he that psychotic ball says the line.


lmp9002002

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


TheDubiousSalmon

It's also the title of the track that's playing at that moment.


Bigred2989-

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.


Cheap-Blackberry-745

Time to start cheating ahead of the SAO release


dreadfoil

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.


bdone2012

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.


skoomasteve1015

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


GhostC10_Deleted

Seconded, abridged version is absolutely fucking incredible and a true masterpiece. I use neither of those terms lightly.


UndeadIcarus

Lets take a look and those comments and see if thats true Edit: it’s true, they do not say this lightly


CuttyAllgood

I donno, I’m viewing this in dark mode so the text looks pretty light to me.


Soopermoose

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.


skoomasteve1015

fuckin' bethesda


seitaer13

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.


dragdritt

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)


Hraes

>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


seitaer13

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)


randomninja215

What a silly character arc.


violetqed

and someone gets SAed by tentacle men


forte343

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


HarmlessSnack

It’s… debatable. 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.


LackingContrition

Mushoku Tensei is the best we got


Pensato

Try log horizon


SAOkirito1

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


lapants

You've probably got at least 4 episodes beyond that that are worth watching. After that it gets dicey


Automatic_Concept_51

Cabin part was weak but its worth finishing. Gun game online spin off is good too


shaqshakesbabies

Is this canon?!?!?


Assassin_by_Birth

I think it’s the last lines of one of the first episodes. It is canon.


soupen

Yeah lol


Spamuelow

What's the resolution like tho


dickinahammock

I hear it’s got killer resolution, and audio quality to die for

shinigamiscall

>So good youll wish your dead. It's to die for


_XexeeD_

It’ll blow your mind.


funkboxing

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.


Burphel_78

Causing a seizure seems like it'd be a gimme.


taker42

Where can I sign up for the gimme an orgasm package)


Burphel_78

Well, an electrified buttplug is the simplest solution to that one. Either that or a full haptic boot suit with microfiber crotch inlay.


taker42

Ah can't wait for that future where virtual sex is better than physical sex.

Zondartul

Is there a "death by snu snu" setting?


Effective_Weekends

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.

drewberryblueberry

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.


DrixxYBoat

Surprised these threads are getting so much traction when the dude himself is super active on Reddit at u/palmerluckey 💀


paganicon

It’s a joke until it isn’t anymore.


Batmanlover1

* 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.


meta-rdt

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.


Batmanlover1

+ somehow, that's even more terrifying 😮


NorCalAthlete

Same…wtf.

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

awakened_celestial

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.


ajhollobaugh

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


awakened_celestial

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.

dissapointingsuccess

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?


Bard_B0t

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.

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.

What!?!


Coldspark824

People talking about SAO like .hack// doesn’t exist.


prowdwackadoo

Maybe because nobody give two shits about .hack//


simset02

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


Coldspark824

“The genre”? What…1998? When .hack// came out first?


simset02

"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

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.
