Ready Player One Chapter 3 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- Wade enters Aech's chatroom, the Basement.
- Here the two best friends get into a heated debate about whether or not Ladyhawke, a 1985 movie starring Matthew Broderick and Michelle Pfeiffer, rocks or stinks. (Shmoop amongst yourselves.)
- They're interrupted when another of Aech's friends, I-r0k (I rock! Get it? Oh, he sounds like a wonderful guy), enters the chatroom to stir up trouble.
- He insults Parzival and brags about a videogame he acquired, as if he's the only person on Earth to have it.
- Parzival and Aech know all about it: the Swordquest series of Atari games from 1982, unofficial sequels to Adventure, which Halliday's Hunt is an homage to. They put I-r0k in his place, and he leaves.
- Aech and Parzival make arrangements for TV time after school just as the bell rings.
