Supposedly, it is a fun little game of luck, probability and chance... However, it appears that there is more to it than that. Check it out.

Wow, they've got combo moves and everything!

This is too detailed to be a fake, no?

The great thing is the on-line "trainer" game where you can play RPS against the computer. Here's a quote from the description:
"... the Trainer's playing style is a hybrid of the playing styles of several retired Grand Masters. We took some of the most devious strategies and tactics ever seen on the World RPS circuit and packed them into our artificial intelligence engine."

Awesome. My guess is that this AI = random number generator.

I can't decide which is more sad, the fact that the "grand prize" for the international RPS championship was $7,000 or the fact that I actually sat there playing RPS against the computer (came out on top, 6-4).

And to think, I've been wasting my time here at the computer when I could be out making money playing RPS

I'd rather take my friends money when they lose a bet against me in Soul Caliber II thanks [img]tongue.gif[/img]
