    Default Twitch Plays Pokémon Crystal! (Viewers Control The Game)

    So Twitch (A video host dedicated to gaming videos) has started an unprecedented phenomenon, a video game where the viewers have complete control!

    Twitch

    Basically, viewers control the outcome of the game by writing button inputs (Ex. A, B, Up, Down, Start, etc.) on a chat window, and the comments are converted into commands which will be inputted into the game play.

    So far, it's been highly successful with 731,666 views and 15,111 active participants (As of February 14, 2014 9:57 PM MST) and gaining massive attention. As I am posting this, having been played for 2 days, 5 hours, 31 minutes and 52 seconds the game has already completed the events of the St. Anne and is now setting it's sight on the Vermilion Gym (And juggling the ever-confusing trash can puzzle with completely random controls will prove to be quite the challenge).

    Be sure to check it out, and contribute to this amazing event (You need a Twitch account to be able to comment successfully).

    This is horrible... Why would anyone want to watch that?

    I agree. It's just mindlessly walking into walls and opening the menu.

    Red is currently lost in a Flash-less Rock Tunnel.

    I find this hilarious.

    They were in there last night, but then they dug out. Let's hope they do it again.

    Rock Tunnel was cake compared to the ledge.

    There's no way they're going to be able to get HM03 from the Safari Zone unless they disable the step counter or something (it's been suggested but I dont know if they've actually make that decision).

    And yes, it's hilarious to watch. I've been popping in from time to time.

    Pretty much this. It's slightly amusing, but it gets really annoying very quickly because the sheer amount of commands being input prevents anything from getting done. I'm honestly surprised it's managed to get as far as it has.

    TwitchPlaysPokemon confirmed in a private message on Twitch that he's modifying the Safari Zone to make it easier.

    Praise be to the Helix Fossil, our god and savior.

    He has sacrificed himself to raise his son Bird Jesus from the depths of the PC box.

    Beware the false prophet Flareon, for he has cost us Jay Leno and Abby.

    Apparently there are now Jay Leno Rattata and Abby Charmeleon for trade on the X/Y GTS, with the players asking for Omanyte (can't confirm for myself right now).

    Every time I check on the stream I'm always amazed at how much progress is made. This morning they were struggling to move through the Celadon Gym (how many people does it take to cut a tree?), and now they're somehow getting through the Rocket Hideout. Good luck getting that Lift Key, though...

    So good to watch.
