    YouTube vlogger and Twitch streamer Tyler Schultz had formulated a novel idea for proposing to his girlfriend with an Easter egg in Insomniac Games’ upcoming open-world “Spider-Man” game. The developer obliged, setting up a movie-theater marquee with, “Maddie, Will You Marry Me?” Sadly, the event didn’t turn out to be heartwarming: Schultz’s girlfriend ended up dumping him for his brother just before the game was released. Art Director Jacinda Chew is taking suggestions on what her team should change the text to.

    "The thing that sucks about this Easter egg is the date that I'm making this video now, three, four weeks ago, my girlfriend dumped me to go with my brother. Basically throwing away the five years that we had together and spitting in my face basically, saying this isn't even the way she wanted to be proposed to, and left me. This might go down in history as the saddest Easter egg. Maybe, I don't know."

    Ok, first of all, her excuse is bogus. You don't just throw away five years because you didn't like the proposal and then go to the brother.

    She was obviously sleeping with the brother on the side and the proposal was just the excuse for her to get out.

    Genetics aside, BFG. Contrary to popular belief, size does matter in a lot of cases today.

    Well you weren't married..she was clearly cheating on you..so she did you a favor. Be happy she didn't wait until you were married and take you for most of your financial worth while she was at it.

    She's not yours, it's just your turn. Men, don't marry! Date, yes, have fun with women, yes! But always always be prepared for any relationship to end and never make yourself dependent on a woman. Your life is in your own hands and you are personally responsible for your well-being.

    If his idea of a romantic proposal to a woman who was possibly a non-gamer was to have a video game proposal, then perhaps the dude had some deeper issues.

    Although then jumping ship to the brother makes her seem like a thot.

    In this one I'd say they're both losers.

    Or, just be a bit more selective I knew who you choose to date and don't go fishing for chicks at the bottom of the barrel at clubs and bars...

    That's ok, he just needs to wait until she slams that wall, decides oh shit I don't have babies yet and then slings back to him.

    I can't help but think she was already riding the brother when this all went down. Excuse does seem rather lame.

    Jacinda is trying to figure out what to do next.

    Seriously, is it that hard to put out an update that just changes the marquee? I mean, they just pushed one out for the photo mode and some sites are already stating something about an October update for DLC. Spent part of this morning reading reviews about it.

    What kind of horse shit is this? ONE guy asks a game developer to put in a marriage proposal easter egg into a game that might sell millions? What next? A 40 year old balding Brony requests a plaque that says "I love my kitten, Ming Ming!" hidden in Microsoft Word 2020? This is stupid beyond 7 dimensions and I am glad he got dumped.

    This reminds me of the time when a Borderlands youtuber named Yoteslayer or some shit got killed trying to beat a freight train in his truck, he didn't make it, but everyone wanted Gearbox to add him to Borderlands 2 for a tribute. I said he's already in BL2, the truck of bandits in the intro that get hit by the train. Everyone got upset.

    Is there any legitimate evidence this is real and not something fabricated. This really tarnishes the Spiderman image of Peter Parker and Mary Jane love story in a round about way just to be associated with it. Are we sure this isn't just eleborate fabricated trolling to accomplish the latter? The whole thing sounds too crazy to be true almost.

    That’s just it though, it’s so crazy and stupid, it’s probably true.

    A cuck and a whore don't make it in the real world. The end. The devs who did this really should have saw this coming. Really kind of stupid all around.

    Can't imagine how, it's literally fair use as it is game footage used for the purpose of demonstration/parody.

    That's never stopped companies from abusing YouTube's content ID system. May not be what's happening here, but it is what it is.

    Fair-use is a protected action though. I hope whoever puts it up gets their fair recourse, because taking it down is breach of that.
