Finally good thread to ask as a fucking stupid person:

What #Darksiders2 means to Destructoid? The history of it? I kinda, just barely, understand the usage but other things...
I was trying to see if I could find the first instance for you but the history of it is layered thick like sediment on the ocean floor. My memory is hazy but I think the hashtag part of it started with a twitter contest he hijacked. There was a cblog by Handy back in early 2012 that highlighted the ridiculousness of the skull-packed screenshots for example (images lost to time), but even the the preview from the summer before, people were looking for Occams' reaction. It took on a life of its own. Some have tried to get a new hashtag going, but it's easier if you don't think too hard about it.

This probably didn't help at all lol.

Basically, it's something that's edgy to the point of being comically ridiculous. Or something that's deeply misguided to such an extent that it becomes self-parody.

Does a Silly Bandz/shaped rubber band bracelet movie count as “deeply misguided”?
It's not quiiiite edgy enough. Now, if it were a gritty R-rated gore movie? Oh fuck yes.

When you tell your co worker you had a bad stomach bug last night and they immediately fire back "is there a good stomach bug?" and then they ask you "hey you ok?" because you've zoned out from imaging murdering their entire family.

Armstrong did everything wrong, he wasn't even that fun a boss fight.

Pretty great cutscenes though.

It's from an anti-lockdown, anti-vaxx, and anti-5G protest.
