The Oscars always have some fun moments and surprises. Those who watch religiously know very well how things can take a turn in a minute. Also, some expressions that manage to get caught on camera can turn into a meme forever! No one knows this better than Spiderman’s Andrew Garfield! For the second year running, he quickly became a viral meme overnight after he made a face!
Andrew Garfield Strikes Again
Garfield became an overnight meme sensation for the second year in a row, if anyone can believe it! On the 95th Oscars, hosted by talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, Mr. Garfield made an awkward grin after comedic commentary from the host. Jimmy was making light of the situation with Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at last year’s Oscars, and he mentioned Garfield would be his security in the role of Spiderman. When the camera zoomed over to Spiderman himself – that captured grin spread all over social media like wildfire!
Fans Were in a Tizzy
After that awkward smile went viral, fans went on to comment on the hilarious facial expression. One fan wrote that it wouldn’t have been the real Oscars without Andrew going viral. Another went on to write that he didn’t lose anything and became the second meme. One fan commented that Andrew’s awkward grin needs to become a reaction image right away!
It Happened Last Year Too
In 2022 at the 94th Oscars, Andrew Garfield took the meme crown for the first time! While famous actor, Kevin Costner, was introducing the Best Director nominees, Andrew was caught on camera texting under the table. He has since said he feels bad about missing the beautiful speech because, at that time, his friends took priority over Kevin. They were all texting him to ask what the atmosphere in the room was since the speech was right after the infamous slapping incident.
Bottom line – the Oscars wouldn’t be the same without Andrew Garfield becoming a sensational meme overnight! He took the title of best meme for the second year in a row, and fans can’t wait for the 96th Oscars to see if he will hit a three-time meme sensation!
The Developers of The Witcher 1 Remake Have Announced a New RPG Title
The developer, Fool’s Theory, who is currently working on the Witcher 1 remake, has disclosed that they are collaborating with 11 bit studios to develop a new supernatural RPG game named The Thaumaturge. The studios are both composed of AAA veterans, and that sounds very promising for their new project.
Fool’s Theory has contributed to the creation of prominent games like Baldur’s Gate 3 and Outriders, while 11 bit studios have developed Frostpunk. In the past three decades, Poland has witnessed the emergence of numerous talents, with CD Projekt Red being one of its biggest success stories. CD Projekt Red is responsible for the creation of The Witcher trilogy, and although the first two games received favorable responses, it was the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that propelled the company into becoming one of the most prosperous AAA studios. Following the success of The Witcher 3, some of the developers chose to depart from CD Projekt Red to establish their own companies with the hope of working on a broader range of games.
Plenty of those developers have joined both Fool’s Theory and 11 bit studios, resulting in the production of fresh and captivating games. Currently, Fool’s Theory is focused on remaking The Witcher 1 using Unreal Engine 5, while in 2019, the company revealed Project Vitriol, which it was developing in partnership with 11 bit studios. Fans now have the chance to view a teaser of this latest offering.
Project Vitriol Is The Thaumaturge
The previously titled Project Vitriol is now known as The Thaumaturge. It is a story-driven RPG with morally ambiguous choices. Players will encounter Thaumaturges, who can control hybrid creatures called Salutors with psychic powers. However, consequences are never straightforward when dealing with these powerful beings, making for an intriguing gameplay experience.
What Will it Offer?
The Thaumaturge is set to offer players an immersive world where decisions have consequences, and the protagonist can be molded according to the player’s preferences. Interactions with Salutors will provide players with a unique set of skills, and turn-based combat will be a prominent feature of the game. The teaser trailer for The Thaumaturge has generated great interest among gamers, and the title is expected to cater primarily to hardcore RPG fans.
