Maybe it’s a little unfair to slag this off. If someone bought me Dark Souls socks for Christmas I’d probably wear them every day.
But I still found this hilarious.
This morning EB Games loyalty members received an email — just the ‘Manager’s Specials’, an email newsletter about deals at the store. Standard stuff, but then…
Gaming Socks. $5.
That’s a pretty decent deal I guess. Socks are expensive. But yeah, you’re gonna have to settle for Call of Duty branded socks with skulls on them. That’s not really my bag.
But then I decided to dig a little deeper. I went to the EB Games website, I googled ‘socks’. And I found this:
Guys, EB Games lets you pre-order socks. You can pre-order gaming socks.
But EB Games sells shitloads of socks. Shitloads. Check this out. Some of them are pretty cool I suppose. I think I am going insane. Gaming socks are sending me insane.
This is just extremely difficult to parse. I started this post with the intention of taking the piss out of EB Games for selling ‘gaming socks’. Now I’m like, “where are the Dark Souls socks? When are they coming out?”
“Will they be available for pre-order?”
