Sometimes satire site The Hard Times really nails it.
When I first saw the title for this YouTube video, I assumed there would be an estimate or educated guess, but in fact the video delivers–he actually digs into things and figures out exactly how many diamonds there are in Minecraft. One of the best videogame-related videos I’ve ever seen.
RALEIGH, N.C. — A lead change occurred in the final lap of the Rainbow Road Grand Prix last night during what was supposed to be a friendly game of Mario Kart amongst friends, when a blue spiny shell struck the leading racer mere inches from the finish. The driver, Marty Witten, fell from first place to last before creeping over the finish line.
“Fuck shit goddamn motherfucking ass shit fuck,” said a visibly perturbed Witten, who had led the entire race before the shell struck. “Fuck fuck fuck I hate this stupid bullshit game AHHHHH!”
. . .
“Fucking OP bullshit is what they are,” Witten added. “Why in the fucking heck should I even try to do well, when some goddamn motherfucker is gonna just gonna shoot that shit into my shit?”
SteamCache.Net is a system for caching Steam game downloads so that multiple computers on the same network can more quickly install games.
The primary use case is gaming events, such as LAN parties, which need to be able to cope with hundreds or thousands of computers receiving an unannounced patch – without spending a fortune on internet connectivity. Other uses include smaller networks, such as Internet Cafes and home networks, where new games are regularly installed on multiple computers; or multiple independent operating systems on the same computer.
