Nerds Forced To Leave Comic Con After Playing TERA For Six Straight Hours

That’s right, SIX hours with hardly a bathroom break. While hanging out with the guys at En Masse, we were alerted to the fact that two guys had been playing TERA non-stop all day. As the convention was coming to a close, they refused to leave the terminal. So naturally, we interviewed them!! (En Masse, PC, TERA)

Hahaha gotta love it. Reminds me when I played WoW from open til close at a LAN cafe and they had to make me leave.
PoSTedUP  +   1576d ago
one word: GAMERZ. lol yeah man GOTTA love it.
KingNintendoFanboy  +   1576d ago
Reminds me of when I'd go to BlockBuster in early Sept. 1996 just to play Super Mario 64 before N64 came out later that month.
Megaton  +   1576d ago
Dude... EXACTLY the same thing I did. The people there didn't turn it on the next day so we wouldn't hang around.
CrzyFooL  +   1576d ago
These guys were hardcore. They didn't even flinch when I was talking to them. Hope they don't read this and get mad that I referred to them as Nerd 1 and Nerd 2 lol.
tehuno  +   1576d ago
Definitely want to try this game out now.
CrzyFooL  +   1576d ago
tooo bad, wont be out for a LONG time. Keep up to date at Tera-Online.com. Can you tell I'm a fan? lol
aselah  +   1576d ago

I think we've all experienced that kind of nerdom for one game or another....
Sandwich Bender  +   1576d ago
Gaming marathons are the best. And I'm not really an MMO guy, but TERA does look awesome.
CrzyFooL  +   1576d ago
These guys were at Comic Con . . . with ONE DAY passes. They spent the WHOLE DAY playing TERA. I mean yes, it's an awesome MMO. But there was A LOT to see. I lovehow you can see the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood booth in the backround . . . These guys . . . not interested. :-p
ZarX  +   1576d ago
ROFL they need some hookers...
GrilledCheeseBook  +   1576d ago
this should be good publicity for tera
playing 6 hours straight and standing up to do so
must be damn fun
_delero  +   1576d ago
i played it at E3, everything those guy say is true

you aim, timing is everything, a weak character can take out difficult mobs with some tactics and patience

for MMOs, this is a game changer

" a weak character can take out difficult mobs with some tactics and patience "
Sorry but this is nothing new
I've seen a Monk and Shaman in EQ tag team a raid mob and kite it around. Took them hours but they did it. Seen similar in WoW, Star Wars, and all the other MMO's I've played. Maybe this game is different but from that line it doesnt seem like it.
aselah  +   1576d ago
I love games like the next nerd, but to stand for 6 hours, that is commitment and a sign of a really good game!
mrmcygan  +   1576d ago
That my friend is the definition of "Hardcore" and "No Life".

So if you are A
Hardcore gamer does that make you a nerd?
Or a Hardcore anything are you still a nerd?
George Sears  +   1576d ago
I always find the definition of nerds someone who has this distant look and a weird personality. Now with the looks it has to be just that someothing, really hard to explain that you immediately look and just know he or she is a nerd.
Liquid_Ocelot  +   1576d ago
@the guy saying they need some hookers
....Sigh, like they'd knew what the fuck to do with them ;)
antz1104  +   1576d ago
HOO-RAA! Well said.
Nihilism  +   1576d ago
I finished ME2 in like 3 or 4 days...it took 44hrs...yeah everyone has been there, but that doesn't mean it's healthy or normal. Diablo 2...those were dark days of grinding.
KingKiff  +   1576d ago
Good effort. That just about earns you the "nerd" merit badge lol. (Had mine for years mind due)

I once played 12 hours straight of Killing Floor trying to rank up while hosting my own server the whole time. My little bro in the next room yelling "HEAL ME" periodically....

Good times... I couldn't do it for an MMO though, just not my thing.

But TERA looks interesting to me.

LoL.... Im sure they jerk off to WoW Nightelfs or bloodelfs... i bet they are that type... see.. I bet if the hookers were dressed up as furries they'd know what to do....
Zinc  +   1576d ago
Lambda Lambda Lambda aka The Tri-Lambs

Nerds. Long be thy reign.

And so it was on the eve of the first day of the Nerd Rebellion of 2010.

So do you guys think they would like furries? Lets take a poll.... Say yes or no!
_delero  +   1576d ago
too funny
Sigmarue  +   1576d ago
I think I saw these guys. Or smelled them at least. Hurray for con funk.
TheMutator  +   1576d ago
nerds , nerds ,nerds...!!!
FantasyStar  +   1576d ago
Now this is gaming news!
Alvadr  +   1576d ago
MMOs are bad news
takohma  +   1576d ago
I wonder if they will have that game at comic con NY. I'm going to that one in October. Only fo one day though. I also recently met a girl with the same interests who is also going too!! I can't wait lol

Should be a film, - Nerds on the loose.
hadouken007  +   1576d ago
like my nephew,once he knows im on the game,i have to make him leave when i gotta go to sleep.
Bolts  +   1576d ago
If this is a publicity stun...
...then it worked. I went and checked out the Tera's website only to find yet another JRPG looking MMO. Looks boring as hell and there doesn't seem to be anything about to set it apart from the other "true action" MMO.

Lol when I was at college for 2 years, everyday we have a 1 or 2 hour break between lessons no point going home so we use to go in Gamestation on the 360 (just came out) and the PS2. after about a year n half they finally decided to unplug the pads and stop people playing them :P

Even had a go on dora the explorer once there lol! was a long day.
TwistedMetal  +   1576d ago
no nobody experienced this
The worst gameing nerds are the ones who hog up the demo booths and game areas in a store or mall like its there own house or something. I look at them like wow get a job and a life you freaking nerd looser. I mean honestly dudes its like the equivalent of some ghetto people or trailer park red necks doing... (insert scenario here).

People who jump on those things and play forever are like a bunch of crack heads who just found a rock.

Just picture anytime you just wanted someon to leave for whatevr reason and thats basicallly how everyone feels about the dudes who stay on the game kiosks forever. Yall are lucky you dont get shot because thats the level of pissed people get about you nubs clwoning around on them things.

Its like the equivalent of when your parents use to come in your room and go through your stuff and you are like mom, dad just leave im doing something get out.
