The flash drive monster showdown that's eating up our day
We’ve just spent slightly longer than we probably should have spent at the Verbatim Championship site. Put together by the recording media company of the same name, it’s kind of like Robot Wars, but with virtual robots made from flash drives.
First off, you choose a handful of flash drives with which you want to make your ‘monster’ before pitting them against someone else’s efforts. Then sit back and watch the battle, helping your monster out with some power moves or whatever the fuck they’re called when things start getting a bit messy.
That up there is our monster – he’s called Mof. He’s taken a series of hammerings over the past couple of hours but he’s getting stronger. Perhaps we shouldn’t have just randomly chosen his components and given some actual thought to it. Ah, fuck it... if he doesn't win a fight by tea time, we'll pack it in.
