Imagine the fame, the nerd cred, the women throwing themselves at you, and then the inevitable running away from them in a sweaty panic. Oh, it must be glorious.

Longest video game marathon? The hell? Have they not heard of www.desertbus.org?

135 hours spent on the most recent cookie cutter FPS update? Damn, just damn.

Maybe, just maybe, playing for 135 straight does not bring out your best performance.

pffft, I know a 12-year-old that could beat that if only his mother would let him play through meals.

Not compared to the hackers, especially.

Yeah, you really picked a bad moment to watch the driver cam. I can't be held responsible for that one. Maybe I should have linked to  The desert bus about page

I thought the Desert Bus marathon was a team thing though...

Sounds like the longer you play the less likely you are to be 'top' at it, which makes sense considering how tired he's gotta be. Gotta play six hours just to get an hour's sleep in there, after all.

I don't think they should call it a marathon if he's taking breaks, but I don't make the rules /sigh

Generally speaking, I don't think the Guinness people like to have folks die on them.

I find "hunger strikes" odd because they are often "i don't eat between 8am and 5 pm" type affairs, not literally going without food for one week.

Can we have these marathoners do this from inside a CT machine and watch the brain go haywire? Kinda like live-organ donation.

You'd have to have them in a FMRI machine (functional MRI) to see the actual activity. CT just shows structure.

but if it's MRI, you' wouldn't be able to get any electronics near it, as they'd fly through the room and injure/kill you

I like how the "leaderboards" usually have a leader with only a 1.25k/d. Yes, let's have every leader metric be a quantity. And holy hell, no cred for you.

FTA: "According to Guinness rules, players are granted one ten-minute break every hour, and any unspent time is accumulated."

So, every three hours, you can nap for 30 minutes? I'd think with these rules, you could play for weeks, if not months, at a time.

Hell I know. I can't figure it out but when I play, if I just ate some ast food dinner, I am a killing machine for like an hour and then it's back to a .8KD ratio. Why? Why can't I not suck at this consistently? Is it all a matter of blood sugar?

I enjoy being able to hear them for a few seconds after you kill them. Especially when they've been sitting in the same spot, aimed at the same doorway for 8 kills of so. Make your way around the map and approach them from behind, take the time to line up a headshot, or just a knife in the back, and inevitably you hear "OH WHAT THE CHRIST YOU HACKING PIECE OF S---"

Weeks or months at 4 hours of sleep per day? And that 4 hours is assuming you spend 100% of your break time sleeping (rather than eating, going to the bathroom, exercising, trying and failing to fall asleep, etc).

FTFA:It took Kaya seven days to reach the 135 hour, 50 minute mark, though he didn't actually play in one long uninterrupted session. According to Guinness rules, players are granted one ten-minute break every hour, and any unspent time is accumulated. By skipping several breaks, Kaya was able to actually catch a little sleep and stay in relatively good spirits.

its a bogus record. he never actually PLAYED that long in one stretch. If thats how they are going to do the timing i bet there are thousands of people on warcraft that have that shattered by MONTHS at a time.

Just out of curiosity, what do you think snipers do? You think they just jog around in the middle of the street making a target of themselves? Camping is not staying in one hidden place for a few seconds to line up a shot. Camping is standing right next to a spawn point so you can kill people as they respawn.

No, it's that with at least FPS games, there's always a farkton of cheaters, and it took him that long just to keep up.

I have no problems with snipers who camp. That's what they do. It's those sons of biatches that run around QS/NS'ing that make me want to slap the shiat out of them. Snipers don't run around hip firing without aiming.

No, I have no problems with snipers, or finding a great vantage point with that certain sightline that lets you snag some well planned kills. I'm talking about people who crouch/lay down inside a room with an smg aimed at the doorway 4 feet away. Snipers get some respect from me, as it is not a skill I have the patience to exercise. Campers just irritate me. I know it is their game to play how they want, but I just don't understand the pleasure in corner/doorway camping for an entire match.

any time anyone in my guild talks about how '40-man raiding was REAL raiding', i promptly pass down the stories of the 200-man raids in EQ, where you had 40 healers for the main-tank alone.

there's three or four of us old-timers in the guild, so the story gets very quickly backed up and filled in.
