Time-Waster Thursday: Hatetris

Filed under: Frivol,Time Waster Wednesday — Random Yak @ 12:21 pm on April 22, 2010

To everyone who’s ever caused me lost sleep, lost peace or lost time:

Here’s your payback.


Like tetris, but now it’s personal.  Instead of handing you pieces at random, the Hatetris AI evaluates all your options, and gives you the statistical worst-case-scenario…EVERY TIME.  (Remember how you always thought the tetris AI withheld blocks just when you needed them most?  Now it really does.) In other words…if you try to stack up the left side while you wait for that stick to drop and fill the hole on the right…it literally never will.  Why? Because unlike Tetris, which you only thought wanted you to fail, Hatetris does want you to fail.  In fact, it’s designed to ensure that eventually (and usually sooner rather than later) you will.

Ask not for whom the failboat sails.  It sails for thee.

The Nearly Triumphant Return of Time-Waster Wednesday: Progress Wars

Filed under: Time Waster Wednesday — Random Yak @ 1:30 pm on March 17, 2010

(Apologies in advance to the non-gamers among you.  This one is probably only funny if you understand what is meant by “rep grind” … and fortunately, only humiliating if you have to admit you’re revered or higher with Brood of Nozdormu.)

It’s Wednesday afternoon.  You need something to do.

I give you:  Progress Wars.  The online video game that calls it like it really is.  Gone are the distracting graphics, the confusing quest text, and the need for problem solving abilities or that pesky high-end gear.

Progress Wars.  For those who live for the grind.

You’ll thank me when it’s over.

For the record:

1.  This is only a “near triumphant return” because I did not finish the game.

2.  The best mission name I encountered was: ” Plunder enchanted motorcycle hunter stranglers wielding invisible bandyclefs.”  (A mission so awesome I didn’t even understand what I was doing…much like half of Northrend.) “Mission: Ruffle Eggplant” was a close second.  It took a while to complete, probably because I didn’t have any idea eggplants could be ruffled.

3.  How can you not love a game that declares itself the ultimate expression of “being better than your friends at filling progress bars”?

Yes, I’m a gamer geek.  But if you spend more than five minutes on that website (and statistically, 57% of the people who read this site will)…newsflash…so are you.

Time-Waster Wednesday: Demolition City

Filed under: Just Yaks,Time Waster Wednesday — Random Yak @ 1:06 pm on November 11, 2009

Warning: the contents of this post are almost certainly guaranteed to enjoyably take up an inordinate amount of time you will never get back.

Welcome to the newly-resurrected Time-Waster Wednesday.  I’d forgotten this little blogging gem…and it would have stayed forgotten but for the fact that I just wasted half an hour of my own limited existence scrubbing spammer garbage links off the walls in the archives for November 2006.  (Which, as always, leaves me in an indescribable mood.  At least, indescribable without the use-of-words-we-don’t-print-here.)

And so, in the interest of totally wrecking someone else’s day too, permit me to offer the Return of Time-Waster Wednesday: Spanning the ‘Net to bring you the best in mindless entertainment of little social, political or intellectual value. (Read: Things You Will Actually Do When You Should Be Working.)

Today’s offering:

Demolition City

The rules are simple:  “Put the dynamite in place and blow up the building.”  Extra points for taking the structure down with minimal collateral damage.  (But as I.T. Yak points out…where’s the fun in that?)


After all, you weren’t really planning to work today, were you?
