Gamers Everywhere Rejoice Over Long-Awaited 'Elden Ring' Gameplay Reveal

Grettings, gamers. Let's cut right to the chase: after two years of radio silence about Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin's fabled Elden Ring, we finally have proof that it's real. And the proof is beautiful.

25 Cringeworthy Posts People Thought Were Deep

Social media can be a good thing. Sites like Facebook and Instagram allow people to keep in touch with family and friends - a luxury that people are learning is incredibly important as the world copes with the Covid-19 pandemic. But there's a darker (and untintentionally hilarious) side to being able to share images with your followers. We're talking about the fact that people can hit the "share" button and share convoluted memes and posts that they seem to think are ultra deep. You know, "We live in a society" type sentiments. They often have to do with some very teenage feelings about loneliness and dating, and, even worse, the negative effects of the same technology they're using to share their "deep thoughts." The r/im14andthisisdeep subreddit is an impressive archive of these kinds of posts, a veritable hub of cringey thoughts that, frankly, we can't help but eat up. We've put together some of their latest and greatest offerings, but you can enjoy some more of this content here if you end up craving more.

GameSpot Game Reviewer Rats Out Jerk To His Own Mother

Many women involved in the gaming community have suffered at the hands of male gamers and enthusiasts. GameSpot game reviewer Kallie Plagge is just the latest woman to be assaulted by an immature prick with nothing better to do. But she took matters into her own hands and decided to fight back - by finding and snitching on him to his mother. We normally advise against snitching (you don't want to risk getting stitches) but this exchange was particularly satisfying. Plagge shared the conversation to Twitter, and pretty much everyone had a fiery roast or enthused congratulations for the writer. She deserves all props.

Gamer's Misogynist Take Gets Roasted Through Memes

This week in Gamer Moments: Sexism strikes again.

Most fans were stoked after Sony revealed gameplay of Horizon Forbidden West, which teased stunning graphics, epic music and the game's protagonist, Aloy looking badass. On the other hand, some gamers weren't so impressed with subtle changes to Aloy's facial features, going so far as to complain about Sony supposedly making their female characters look 'masculine as hell.' Yikes.

@apexalphaj's unfortunate take has since been deleted, but that hasn't stopped Twitter from taking the opportunity to make fun of yet another sexist and antiquated gamer sentiment. The tweet inspired a hilarious meme format that aptly points out the absurdity of imposing arbitrary beauty standards on fictional characters. Is it just me or do they be making Squidward look ugly as hell? All those rough non-handsome features...unlike the average squid.

Keep scrolling for some of the funniest 'hire fans lol' memes that were born from one cringey gamer's bad take.

Cursed D&D Dice That Were Shamed for Their Crimes Against Probability

Anyone who's played a tabletop game at some point is familiar with the woes of cursed dice that, against all odds, seem to conspire against the roller. Of course, this isn't actually how probability works, but when random rolls of the dice continue producing devastating results for even the most capable paladin, it's hard not to imagine a hint of malice within those otherwise unassuming little pieces of plastic. 

Over the years, Dungeons and Dragons gamers have coped with the pain of evil dice by 'shaming' them and posting images of their exiled dice online for all to see. The listed crimes that often accompany the accused dice are funny in themselves, but also offer an amusing insight into the versatility and imaginative aspects of the game. The absurd scenarios that evolve from a bad roll almost make the pain worth it (for us, anyway). Keep scrolling for some of our favorite 'dice shaming' posts from the world of D&D tumblr.

19 Cringey Moments Of Obnoxious Gatekeeping

Ever meet a person who thinks they are the premier authority of any given subject? That they call the shots of what's right or what's wrong. Well, the internet is full of these people, and they're commonly referred to as gatekeepers. They generally exert this "authority" over aspect of culture, such as gaming, or even institutions such as marriage or the concept of "maniliness."

Nostalgic Gamers Recall Their Earliest Gaming Memories

Poorly Aged Posts That Are Filled With Regret

We all know that hindsight is 20/20. That definitely applies to the year 2020, too. But today we're talking about a special kind of hindsight and regret. We've all seen that tweet from Hillary Clinton where she says "Happy birthday to this future President." Well, things didn't really go as planned. Today we're here to cover some of the regretful and poorly aged posts that you may not have seen plastered over the internet. You know, posts regarding the horrendous winter storm that struck America's heartland this week. Or, perhaps, posts that deal with some woefully ignorant Bitcoin owners who sold themselves short years ago.

Most of these regrettable situations and posts are pretty harmless. But they're a great reminder that you really need to try to think to the future before getting your hopes up - or your hopes lost. One thing's for sure, it always helps to laugh through the pain.
