Kanye West has unveiled the first footage from the video game about his mother traveling through the gates of heaven. Head to about 1:35 to see the footage of Only One: The Game. Your guess is as good as mine as to what platform it's on, what the gameplay is like, or what you'll actually do in the game, but it's visually pretty cool looking. I was anticipating something that looked like his wife's mobile game, which is not even worth including a screenshot of.

Awkwardly, Kanye explained that he had trouble getting this game made:

That’s not easy to do, man! Y’all just be acting like that s*it is regular. No, you don’t understand. I go out and meet with everybody in San Fran, and they’ll diss the f*ck out of me. And I’ll be like, "I wanna make a game," and they’ll be like, "F*CK YOU." That was hard to do, bro!

I have no idea how big the intersection between Kanye West fans and gamers is, but apparently Kanye had trouble finding a developer who thought it was big enough to invest their time in.

If you're unfamiliar with Taiwan No. 1, here's the quick and dirty version: back in July of 2015, YouTuber ANGRYPUG was streaming H1Z1 and decided to troll a Chinese player by yelling "Taiwan number one" at him. The guy didn't take it well, and a meme was born. Watch the interaction for yourself below (action starts at 2:00, beware of naughty language):



Given the tumultuous relationship between China and Taiwan, Pug's video has become incredibly popular in Taiwan, elevating him to celebrity status there. He recently attended the Taipei Game Show, where people were lining up to take a picture with him and get his autograph.



Sometimes the internet is beautiful.
