About me

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line. I'm a driver, I'm a winner. Things are gonna change, I can feel it. He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse. He's going the distance. He's going for speed. He's going the distance. Ahh... / Ah. Words to remember: neoteny. cynosure. immanent. mercantilism. teleology.Read more about me »

8bitfuture:

Video: 20 Seconds of Tetris madness.

A little explanation is in order. This is what’s called a Tetris “line race” (also known as a “sprint”), in this case an attempt to clear 40 lines in the minimum possible time. This is the kind of thing top-level Tetris players do when they’re bored, and/or want to prove that they are truly the best in the world.

The player here is a Japanese woman player* who goes by “Keroco,” and he or she achieved 40 lines in 19.68 seconds. That’s the first time that someone has broken the 20-second barrier, and it’s astonishing, to say the least. (A few years back, 40 seconds was considered a great time.) Tetris champion Ben Mullen wrote of the feat, “Let me humbly submit that this may be the greatest achievement in the history of gaming. … This won’t make national news. But to be honest, it should.”
