  • a meme-ish phrase used when one has reached a milestone or accomplished something noteworthy. Derived from video games in which the player works through a hierarchical sequence or tree of goals; "unlocking" one allows further progress through the game, access to more difficult achievements, and often new powers, abilities, etc.
