An amazing Tekken Mod that makes fighters look like Elden Ring characters has been making the rounds and it looks incredible. Unfortunately, this has led to fans reaching out for mod support from official channels to the point that Tekken God Harada himself has asked the creator to stop. You can read more in our full article here,
Um ... Sure, Elden is a Bandai Namco-funded title, and I was the production general manager in charge of Elden, so it's not irrelevant ... it's ridiculously well-made mod but plz stop it lol https://t.co/ISlXLrjfhM— Katsuhiro Harada (@Harada_TEKKEN) March 31, 2022
Silent Hill fans are hoping that the original versions of Silent Hill 2 and 3 are part of the new versions of PS Plus but until then, this meme is pretty accurate.
I love a satisfying parry. So I have to admit that I am jealous that I have never gotten an invader to instantly head home after this kind of warning. Impressive.
This has to be the loudest "Shut the fuck up" I've ever heard in Elden Ring. pic.twitter.com/XPFuOyUMUg— Elden Lord H𝖔𝖜𝖑 (@HowlAvalon) March 28, 2022
Players have already started creating characters from pop culture in Elden Ring but I honestly don't know how I would react if Wolvie decided to go into berserker mode while I'm trying to free myself from being maidenless in these streets.
Speaking of Soulsborne awesomeness, what was once just an April Fool's Joke, is officially becoming a full blown thing. Are you excited for Bloodborne Kart?
But wait, there's more! The game's creator, Lilith Waither posted a brief look at Bloodborne Kart Battle Mode!
Folks are definitely hype to see this be a real thing. What do you think of the surprise?
Happy Bloodborne Kart real everyone pic.twitter.com/XpHZPReSlK— DILFBORNE✧ (@ventiskull) March 29, 2022
Ok, just one more Will Smith meme. This was too good to pass up.
As always we end this on a feel good moment. I've never seen tech used personally in such a romantic way. The bar has been raised fellas!
To be loved out-loud, with intention and thoughtfulness is everything. Thank you babe for making this year, and my life truly golden! DREAM COME TRUE!!! pic.twitter.com/NSk3efh8b2— Mama Jay🧡 (@jaylabrenae) March 28, 2022

I'm always here for new Syd. But adding Lucky Daye to this record takes it to another level.
MELT MY EYEZ SEE YOUR FUTURE just dropped this week as well and it deserves a listen. Denzel Curry was not on my radar for the longest but he's put together one of the most interesting projects of the year so far.
I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Thanks for reading and consider downloading Shackpets to check out Lola's Birthday update! Look at this adorable face!
