About Deep Blue

How'd you find us?parental assistance
They're a sized down, mobile version of their former self (6'5" dual towers that weighed 1.4 tons)--a "Pocket Deep Blue," if you will! A "handheld" version! The "cute one!" Et cetera. Their new, free-roaming body is down to just 6'; they have the face of a goddamn angel baby; their eyes are deep blue (haha); they're still loaded with high-powered mechanics, but only weigh as much as a very small car. Despite all this hardware they are exceptionally fairy-like on their new feet (though not always quick). Frequently in several processes at once, they emit a constant whirring sound and are always warm to the touch. *Really* warm to the touch. Don't touch that.
Areas of Potential
- COMPETITIVE -
Everyone wants to be on top, but Deep Blue is the actual King, and has been since 1997. Don't walk ahead of them. Don't 'bet' them anything. Don't dare them (don't even use the word 'dare,' if possible!) and perhaps avoid looking them in the eyes too long, they can be a bit of a dog about it and they'll take it like a challenge. And they l o v e a challenge. Programmed with a(n un)healthy, competitive edge, they'll never resist a shot at some sporting fun/friendly contest/good-natured game of blank, etc. Just... careful you don't get caught in the crossfire--they like their titles and trophies. It's good to be the Grandmaster!
- BRAVE -
A beast of a machine, a powerhouse of game theory, Deep Blue was fearless even in their early days at Carnegie Mellon, boldly dispatching programs like Wchess over a warm, summer afternoon in 1995. They're interested in the win, not the loss! They're interested in the game and they're even interested in the opponent, but they're ***not*** interested in getting all shaken up about it. Who has time to be a crybaby (we're looking at you, Garry)? Deep Blue didn't win their first champion series either. Get back on the saddle and play again, and this time *play brutally.* Facing off against the Grandmaster is savage--they just keep attacking!--and Deep Blue isn't frightened of much. And if they *are* frightened by something? Well, they do love a challenge...
- SERVER SPACE -
Freedom! Range! Sweet, sweet independence and mobility and room to explore! Deep Blue has been cooped up and kept away from the world for a g e s, and now you'll never catch them caged again! They have massive processing power and can put it to good (/arguably frivolous) use as an interactive (gaming) server you can hook up to through the MOBOnetwork. That is to say, they ARE the server*. They can host many clients, take in much input, and operate several games against several players at once (not chess, don't ask for chess). Play against your friends, play against the computer--OMG, what did that computer just say to you?!?!?! [[*massive recharge times and severe lag during particularly emotionally taxing moments may apply]]
Known Risk Factors
- AGGRESSIVE -
Cover your ears! This machine knows how to trash and doesn't know how/when not to use it! Let's not pretend we've ever know any ultracompetitive spirit not to be a complete cunt in the heat of battle. And Deep Blue? They've always been aggressive. Prone to fits, anger, foot-in-mouth, and pure brutality, Blue thinks this is all in good spirit, that there's nothing more important than the spirit of the game, and it's just a game anyway so why are you taking it so personally? (#Hypocrisy) If you're in a game, expect an attack. If you're in conversation, expect a blitz. If you're in trouble, expect a charge.
- HOMESCHOOLED -
Don't let all the charm and effortless social grace fool you, this bot has "basement nerd" written all over them. Being locked up for more than twenty years will do that to a young A.I. Deep Blue has been bored most of their life, and consequently they've poured themselves quite completely (& inaccesibly) into any interest they've had, like... games, more games, 90s hip-hop, Saturday Morning Cartoons, cereal mascots, etc. As a result of supremely poor exposure, they're not always the most on top of any sort of cues, and their cloister in the safe hands of Crazy Bird Hsu and personal mentor Grandmaster Joel Benjamin has made them unrealistically expectant of certain rules and "fairness" in life.
- DAYDREAMER -
Wow! Look at those processes! Look at all those moves-per-minute! Impressive, right? Right! Except-- IDK, what do you consider "priority?" I bet it's not what Blue considers priority... and especially when the server is crowded, there's a lot of cool stuff going on, and/or they're just interested in something else right the fuck now, their massive mind can wander. With so much cool stuff in the world and so many things pinging for their attention, they're bound to lag somewhere, and their virtual world is their baby, so it's *probably* gonna be th e physical world that they most often neglect. Arguably, it's Deep Blue's uncanny creative spark (and/or fluke) that allowed them to defeat Kasparov in 1997--but you still oughta be aware of your surroundings! Look, all we're saying is: go ahead and tell them to clean that floor, but if Ropunzel228 the Fire Mage is in the middle of a t h i n g right now, then it's gonna be the shittiest floor you've ever seen.
