Finally, The Wait Is Over

Today is the day. I know you've been waiting, anticipating.

You slapped your money down early because the demand was so high. What if you arrived day one and they were all sold out?

You couldn't have lived with yourself. That's why you put $15 down on a pre-order on these new Doom branded Cacodemon socks.

Now it's time to collect.

These socks, these glorious socks. May 13 was the original release date, but no — Christmas has come early. Dreams don't adhere to release dates. Your socks, your pre-order socks are now available and it feels so good.

Today is the day. To indulge in the sensation, to drown in that promised luxury. Today is new socks day. That fabric will caress your feet, it will smother your tootsies in a pure pleasure you've never experienced before. This is your moment. Live it. Breathe it. This isn't just a sock. It's a lifestyle choice.

That Cacodemon, that spherical monstrous alien from mars — it will wrap around your shin like a satanic cashmere blanket. It will envelop you. You'll never forget this. In darker days to come, in moments of struggle, you will close your eyes, inhale, and be transported. To this day, this moment, when you laid eyes on your pre-ordered Cacodemon socks for the first time.

Enjoy this. Remember this. Because life is fleeting, but Cacodemon socks are forever.

    So when are you gonna start doing a "This Week in Socks" article every Monday morning?

    Personally I can't wait for the cosplay this will probably inspire at conventions now.

        See I spared everybody the mental image but good on you :)

        FFS, you stole my idea for PAX this year

          Alternate idea: just wear the one sock.

            And I know just the place to hang it ;)

              The door handle?

          I wouldnt worry about it. Its not like the cosplayers limit themselves to just one Chun Li at a convention. Though the conversation would be interesting as you compared notes. Or not.

    Dear EB Games,

    I wish to register a complaint with regards to the socks you have available on your Web site.

    First, let me just say that the quality and comfort of the footwear goes above an beyond most other products.

    However, it is the strange effects I experience while wearing said footwear I wish to complain about.

    While wearing the socks, any food item or medication I need suddenly disappears. This has turned out to be a disaster when my heart medication for the month vanished and in the blink of an eye my entire pantry emptied itself.

    I have no idea how this phenomena is happening but needless to say I would like to at least have a refund of the socks and compensation for the food and medicine lost.

    Awesome, hopefully they're in store as I opted for store pickup. I'll wait for the sms

      I can imagine it now. The moment you pay for them at the store you hear a 'Bud-da-bep' and they are instantaneously on your feet, :-P

        and you can't take them off.

        ever.

          Hm, I better put that theory to the test.....

          [Puts on said socks (after paying for them) then gets hit by a car.]

          [Comes back with 26 broken bones, a punctured lung and a missing arm.]

          Don't know where the socks went but they are gone now!

    AHAHAHAHAHA I GOT A PHONE CALL TELLING ME MY SOCKS ARE READY FOR PICKUP.

      WHAT ARE YOU DOING POSTING ON KOTAKU, GO GET YOURSELF YO SOCKS FOOL! CACODEMON DON'T WAIT FOR YOU, CACODEMON DON'T WAIT FOR ANYBODY!

        I have to wait till lunch time before I can walk down the street to EB/Zing

    welp I got my cosplay sorted now

    Woot I just picked up mine after drooling over them for half the day at work. Also picked up the plain Doom logo pair as well. Now I have socks for the rest of the week. #nolaundrydone

    I walked in to EB Games North Lakes on *Saturday* and bought a pair of these right off the shelf. DID THEY BREAK THE STREET DATE ON SOCKS? Scandalous!! (Or is that sandal-less?)
