Magazine publisher starts dating site for gamers

Future, the publisher responsible for a wide range of UK gaming magazines as well sites like GamesRadar and CVG, has extended its tentacle-like reach over games media by opening a dating site aimed at gamers. A dating site ... aimed at gamers.

I really should just have my palm surgically attached to my face.

"Game 4 A Date is a dating site designed just for you, helping you to find that someone special who shares a zeal for games," the site claims. My brain is at risk of suffering an overload as it tries to process the many millions of sarcastic comments I could make all at once. Just ... too much mockery to be had.

I'll be nice and give it a chance though. Perhaps the twelve-year-old pricks who seem to fill most game servers and communities just need the love of a good woman, and maybe good women actually find whining curly-haired little pricks who "do it for the lulz" to be utterly charming. 

Hey, and who knows? Maybe loads of intelligent, funny, attractive women will join this site and it won't be just one pedophile with a scooter who calls himself Tank.
