i61 iHunt: Guesses Hall of Fame

2. September, 2017

It was the iHunt — a puzzle hunt at Insomnia Gaming Festival — last weekend. We always monitor the hunt carefully to laugh at your misery make sure everything's going to plan and there are no unforeseen issues/difficulties/traps. What follows is a collection of amusing things that came up on our screen. Or to summarise:

"CAN THE IHUNT TEAM STILL SEE EVERYTHING ENTERED???" — Steampunk_Sam (RGBeeGees) for From the Shadows

Yes, yes we can.

In total, there were 9635 guesses, (of which 77 were trying the transmission content from the finale!) The person who guessed the most was Manituo with 485 guesses, and the team which guessed the most was The Pieces of Shmitt with 850 guesses - representing 5[Error rendering LaTeX] of the total guesses each! JGBrock178, who came fourth on a solo team, made more guesses on his own than the entire team of Saor Gamers, who came second.

This post contains some of the highs and lows of iHunt guessing.

Why the Witcher 3 is Good

3. May, 2016

It's really good, by the way. This is not a review, because it's too biased for that. Instead, I'm going to start from the point I arrived at while playing, which is that The Witcher 3 is probably the best single-player game I've ever played. Here I'll talk about why that is. I've tried to keep spoilers to a minimum, but read the full introduction if you're worried.
