Girlfriend Gets Fed Up With Boyfriend's Gaming, Cuts Him Off

Man, we've seen our fair share of lovers' quarrels, and this one is certainly full of its own kind of ridiculous behavior. We have a boyfriend who seems like he's completely hooked on the gaming, and won't stop no matter what he hears. The girlfriend in question asks the folks of Reddit whether or not she's in the wrong for cutting him off like she did. Seems like she had no other choice.

'Sure Grandma, Let's Get You To Bed' Memes Mock Doubtful Truths

We love an easily exploitable meme format, and September's brought us some gems in that department. Our new favorite super-versatile meme has got to be 'Sure Grandma, Let's Get You To Bed'. The trend started on Twitter, but is popping up all over Instagram and Reddit- probably because it can be used in reference to just about everything. Most examples feature the "Grandma" character saying something (like "Netflix used to come in the mail") that sounds extremely hard to believe. The granddaughter character brushes the information off as nonsense, and suggests Grandma needs to rest her addled mind. We've put together some of our favorite examples of the meme, but we're willing to bet you'll find a lot more flying around the meme universe.

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about various video games that had all the promise in the world, and ended up bombing completely. Sometimes video games just flop, and the hype ends up being just that - hype.

Xur sells gjallarhorn and Destiny players lose it.

Maybe you know what most of the words mean in that headline and maybe you don't. Either way, you should know today is a big day for a small selection of video game players.

For the first time since shortly after the launch of Destiny, Xûr, the mysterious Agent of the Nine who appears in different parts of the social areas every weekend to hock rare exotic wares, is selling the most powerful weapon in the game: Gjallarhorn.

Gjallarahorn (or Ballerhorn as it is colloquially known) is a rocket launcher and in the Bungie-developed shooter that's basically an MMO, it's really helpful to have something so powerful when bosses can take a while to beat.

The reason this is something of a bigger deal is because Gjallarhorn was a very elusive drop that became something of a necessity for seasoned players who ventured into Destiny's repetitive but rewarding grind day after day. For many unlucky people (myself included), the random number generator-based loot drop system employed by Bungie never gave up the Gjallarhorn goods. But today and through this weekend, they can purchase it with dignity.

It's a big deal. Hell, even Forbes wrote about it because who knows what their focus is anymore.

The Internet's reaction to this has been pretty fantastic. It was even trending on Twitter throughout America.



But the best reaction has been from the Destiny subreddit.

Mods there declared it a free-for-all holiday with a post entitled, "ATTENTION ALL GUARDIANS: TODAY, AUGUST 14TH, HAS BEEN DECLARED AN OFFICIAL /R/DESTINYTHEGAME HOLIDAY. IN THE SPIRIT OF "GJALLARHORN FREEDOM WOLFPACK PEW PEW BOOM DAY" THE MODS ARE BASICALLY DOING NOTHING. SH*TPOSTS, REPOSTS, NO-EFFORT, CLICKBAIT POSTS WITH MEMES ARE NOW ENCOURAGED."

All users on the site have been given Gjallarhorn flair next to their posts.



The banner image has been done up for the holiday.



And even the cursor has been turned into a Gjallarhorn for maximum celebration.

So if you're one of the unfortunate masses who have never heard the sweet destruction from a Gjallarhorn muzzle, head over to the tower, give Xûr 17 Strange Coins and buy one for yourself.
