I think, therefore I meme.

Just look at the emotion.

Dude, way TMI.

There were some problems with EA’s gamescom stream.

No dental though.

Well worth the pre-order.

  • You monster. I just endured the sound of at least 1000 brain cells committing suicide in unison inside my own head after reading that first tweet. Why would you do that to other people? My lawyers will be contacting you regarding damages. Or at least they would if I had any.

    • In fairness, the CoD: AW tweet is probably worse.
