Internet Legends: Duct Tape Gamer Trailer March 2, 2020

We take for granted today’s availability of high-speed Internet. When I got my first PC, I was stuck with internet speeds that were a fraction of even the lowest speeds available today. That unfortunately would endure for many years beyond what it should have. I come from an age where multiplayer gaming required lugging your large and expensive self-built PC to your friend’s home or co-opt a local business during off hours (with their permission of course).

Why did we do this? We needed access to a high-speed local area network (LAN)…so we could play games against each other! These are called LAN Parties and before the advent of services like Xbox Live or Steam, were how gamers could get the best possible gaming experience. Latency was low, lag was non existent, and the games we played (Quake, Unreal Tournament, Counter Strike) are still talked about to this day.

However, on rare occasions, stories of LAN parties would enter internet legend status. Some would be of underdogs defeating champions. Some would be of incredible impossible computer cases. Then, there was the guy who was duct taped to a ceiling.

The documentary currently has no release date. We will keep you posted when it gets released. Here is the official website.
