really wish the snapdragon ad would feckoff
I noticed in the last year everyone has been using the word meme... and it has been used incorrectly every time. The word 'meme' was coined by Richard Dawkins in 1976. Almost no one used it until it become a word attributed to the internet, pictures and apparently now gaming. Now it seems that everyone uses it but no one knows what it means.
If you are quoting the Urban Dictionary for definitions, then you are going to the wrong source.
And THIS is how you can tell a truly GOOD game from all the chaff. Strangely I could never get into playing as zerg... humies - ok, protoss - check, zerg? - uhhh, no.
Regarding the "kekeke" thing: I always thought it was from WoW... can't remember exactly which faction/race, but when one side writes "lol" the other sees it as "kek". But I guess WoW could just be using an already formed meme... they do have quite a few throw-backs to popular culture.
go... go... go...
wasn't it "ZERG RUSH LOL" that became popular?
also, what about 'we require more vespene gas!' I have a friend who has it as a ringtone and it cracks me up every time.
I like that lady ;)
speak your memes in a whisper quiet voice into my ear please, you ginger-tart. I want to have that accent for desert.
I 'd like to see a study on Win and Fail. These are not the same as simply succeeding and failing, and thus the terms are often used inappropriately. A good example of Win is that it is the stuff that must be gathered to perform a limit break. On the other hand, Fail, when collected in sufficient quantities, is capable of breaking reality in unexplained ways and foiling any possible attempt at success. I want to hear more on the subject.

@amdreallyfast Attempt to be funny FAIL. Watch out!
@edhc44 @amdreallyfast What? I wasn't attempting to be funny. Mildly amusing, perhaps, but my point was that the two terms had their own viral moments, after which they became diluted and often used inappropriately. More than one definition of "Fail" on the Urban Dictionary describes the term as being overused by people who don't know how to use it or can't think of a better term. I think that it would be interesting to hear how the terms were used when they started to become popular.
@edhc44 @amdreallyfast We're good :)
@amdreallyfast @edhc44 Misinterpreted your comment, my bad.
The background muzak is sweet listening! So chill yet invigorating. Good choice. :)
beautiful...moments beautiful girl
Actually, "kekekekkeke" is a japanese laugh.
It is widely used in a lot of animes, where characters laugh out load with "kekekekke".
I'm guessing it's their version of "lolololololol"
@b0sse More likely, its their version of "hahaha"
My hotel 's as clean as an elven arse.
I just love Zergs! :D
DAE le memes? XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Pwnt! My wish for pwn to be a meme has been pwnt!
Spawn more overlords.
I... I gotta go. I ran out of Vespene gas :(
what about the pilon song????
best mix ever!!
"We got the gear to protect your rear"
Anyone know where that's from will get 100 points haha
in mortal kombat when scorpion says "get over here!"
" kekekek" Came from the korean players who were frequently paired up with American players back in the day. It was pretty much the only thing we could understand from them.
Classic. I forgot how much Starcraft has contributed to modern culture T-T , oh the days spent ga.... *You have not enough minerals* f***!
YEAH. This is the type of quality I like to see coming from gamespot. Lol I love memes xD xD xD pls mak more pls xD
You must gather your party before venturing forth.

Soon at the intro when it changes the camera to a SC2 gameplay and Jess was still talking, I'd swear it was not Jess but the female AI operator... it matches perfectly the sweet but bold feminine voice.
Oh the Zerg rush. I GG sooo many time to it, till I figured it out. good times!
What better than a show on the history of jokes? Would you do "that's a nice blank you have there" and other mine craft memes like Hissssssss perhaps? And I think there's probably some Sonic meme or Halo meme, and have you done tes3 HALT YOU HAVE VIOLATED THE LAW (I dunno I just started watchin you might've already done'm)
Sometimes in the middle of the night, i like to lay in a bathtub full of tomato sauce and pretend im a meatball.
MeMe episodes are pretty funny! Keep 'em coming GameSpot! Old-schoolers dig it!

@KaSeRRoR Glad to hear it =]
Anyone know any other memes that i can type into google and see nifty animations?
@AireeeZ My fav is still typing "Where is chuck norris" and then pressing the "I'm feeling lucky" button/hyper text - GENIUS!
That one took some effort.
First I went to www.google.com/ncr just to be sure I wasn't hindered by the localized google.se
Then I had to turn off the automatic completion and even after that it took a few tries. It does work though.
@AireeeZ type these in
'the loneliest number'
in youtube you can play 'snake' the game where u eat dots and grow a snake. hold left for a while then press up while holding left the snake should show up.(only works on newer vids) or is it hold up then press left...
“English” and “Spanish”, but there’s also “Pig Latin”, “Klingon”, “Pirate”, “Elmer Fudd”, and whatever “Bork, bork, bork”
In your Google Reader feed, press the keys “up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A” and watch a Ninja appear! The word “Ninja!” also appears in the searchbox ... sometimes. gotta sign in tho.
http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=let+me+google+that+for+you ? (when you dont wanna answer someones stupid questions)
some cool doodles google has done: This page here
too much gravity on google site: try it here
theres a few more that ive tried, cant remember
@AireeeZ google docs open a new spreadsheet (blank or whatever) then press SHIFT+F12
see what happens
@AireeeZ "Do a barrel roll" I think that one still works.
@Ford_Cruller @AireeeZ yup! I didn't even finish typing it lol.
Tilt also works.
Ah, I love the small of nuclear destruction in the morning!
I always liked playing as the Protss, because then I'd Dark Templar Rush my foes. Maybe not quite as quick as a Zerg Rush, but very effective. There's also the Ghost Rush, build a lot of Command Centers with Nukes, then about 10 Ghosts... then BOOM!
Geez i hate these lady, she is cute but i just hate how she speak ugh.......Sorry.
PS: I freaking hate playing against another zerg or protos player >< dammit.
@CRAPCOM1926 If she spoke anything like you write, I might agree.
