Nibbler World Record Attempt

After watching him for a while, its amazing how he seems to have each level and each solution memorized. This is fascinating.

Marathon gaming is all about the pattern memorization :)

 

Yeah I've begun to see a pattern in Berzerk when I play noe. I can't describe it but it's like I've figured out which robots are going to shoot next. It's a very strange feeling when I'm right. I kind of feel like I'm predicting gameplay.

I can marathon 3 games and none of them have any particuliar pattern, especially Missile Command.

 

EDIT: If there is a pattern I do know it.

It's over!

 

Tim's game ended just shy of 600 million. It's been reported that he built up too many lives and a glitch in the game put an end to the run.

 

I'd like to hear Tim's take on this. I thought he would have been aware of something like this happening.

Yep, if you get more than 128 lives you lose them all. He's aware of it as he reported the bug over on the DP easter eggs page (http://www.digitpress.com/eastereggs/arcadenibbler.htm). I'm guessing he lost count because he was too tired. I was actually wondering if this going to happen because every time I check in he was around the 120's.

Thats too bad, I can understand how difficult it must be to game that long and keep your concentration up. Still a good game, I think he can still do it though in the future.

I guess he may try again next Easter. It's kind of confusing with the lives, since when you get a large number it is a mixture of a letter and a number. His friends were supposed to take turns keeping him awake and watching his extra lives. Someone wasn't paying attention!
