Right now, there are literally thousands of people attempting a single play through of Pokemon Red. At the same time. And it's being streamed through the internet here.
133 hours in so far and they're only in the rocket maze. They have been there since at least yesterday morning when I first checked it out. Fucking lol.
This is gold. The best part is, anyone can join in as long as they have access to twitch.tv. Try and make a difference!
I can't wait til they get to Silph Co.
EDIT: Fack, I didn't read the Slog Bait's post. Oh well, at least I explained what's going on a bit more in depth.
