QWOP... Or, "How I run?"
« on: October 02, 2009, 09:35:03 pm »

Okay, this game is infuriating.

How can running be this hard! It can't! It... Makes NO SENSE!!!

I'm not sure, but I think that Janet approves of lasers. It's very subtle though...

 Welcome to being 3 years old.

 And even the professional runners of this game look awkward. You just need to find a rhythm. Or, as the Freelance Astronauts did, the "Victory shuffle."

I found out the secret!! Just get on your left knee, and press OP repeatedly!

Do the knee shuffle!~

There was a game just like this on a parody how-to video, except it used all of the keys on the keyboard, and made you press spacebar to breathe.

This is the greatest game ever conceived off.  I am literally doubled over in laughter after 45 seconds of playing.

I figured it out.

Tap O

Hold P and Q at the same time, and at just the right moment switch to O and W.  If you keep doing this with perfect timing you'll do something that vaguely resembles running.

The knee shuffle is still pretty good.

Forget that slow noise.  Immediately smash W and O to vault a full meter forward, then try to kick with the forward calf to vault forward again.  I haven't deciphered the trick yet, but I managed to rhythm out three steps to make it 4.1 meters.  I'm on a roll here.

Ugh. 9 meters was my infuriating best before I just gave up.

It's like potato chips that piss you off.  You put it down but you just have to go get another.

Also, now I have Hello my Baby stuck in my head.

Now begs the question is it possible to do a back flip without hurting yourself? I can't do it after half an hour of trying :p , though I've gotten kind of close.
