Gather around, readers, as I regale you with another story about the weird shit players are doing in Elden Ring. Don’t worry, this article won’t be about cheeky, assassinate the turtle clergyWhere throw death strats (we have already done them). This time around, Elden Ring has become an even wackier gaming experience thanks to the goofy and surreal modding efforts of a YouTuber.
YouTuber GrilledShoes, which has uploaded a bunch of modded gameplay videos, posted a video aptly titled “Elden Ring but ruined by mods”. While these mods don’t necessarily ruin the game, they do turn Elden Ring into a fever dream for terminally ill online gamers. The Australian YouTuber’s bold reimagining of FromSoftware’s newfound popularity replaces Elden Ring’s bosses and NPCs with popular cartoon characters, resulting in a hilarious and off-putting viewing experience.
Use mods created by other YouTubers eye garden, ToastedShoes stars as a tarnished Homer Simpson as he boldly embarks on his quest for the “Elden Donut.” Someone might want to tell him what Elden Ring actually is (you know, once players figure that out). Here is a list of some Elden Ring characters and the famous cartoon characters that replaced them in the ToastedShoes video.
The highlight of the video is Homer’s battle with the tree sentinel, one of the first optional bosses. Allow me to set the scene. Elden Ring goats graze listlessly in Limgrave Forest. (It wouldn’t be a fever dream of a video if Sonic didn’t make an appearance there somewhere.) Suddenly, the Sonic goats retreat in terror as the Tree Sentinel approaches Homer, showing his dominance with a whirlwind of his axe. Limgrave must be located near a swamp because the Tree Sentinel has been transmogrified, by the dangerous sorcery of PC mods, into a glassy-eyed Shrek on his horse, Donkey.
A mix of sound clips from the Shrek movies and Homer Simpson voice impersonations by the voice actor Benjamin Rudman play intermittently during their very one-sided battle. After Homer hands him his bountiful ass, he tactfully decides to step aside. Cowards survive. This fight doubles as Shrek lore no one asked for and is ToastedShoes’ favorite scene in the video.
“I love the Shrek and Donkey mod,” ToastedShoes told Kotaku. “Having Shrek ride Donkey as his ‘noble steed’ seems almost poetic in nature.”
Although the YouTuber became known for creating edited gameplay videos, that wasn’t always the plan. Before amassing 574,000 subscribers, ToastedShoes started their YouTube channel in 2013 with the sole purpose of creating content with their friends.
“As [time] progressed, I noticed people doing mod content on games like GTA 5 and Minecraft, which was amazing,” he said. “But I noticed and wondered why it hadn’t been done in more games. So I decided to take the plunge and reach out to some of the most talented modders on the internet.
Unfortunately, the downside for ToastedShoes to upload such a unique Elden Ring video is that some netizens repost clips without crediting or linking it to him and his collaborators, and they may get more attention than him. While it’s not uncommon for creators who upload content inspired by a new video game to have their creations reposted, ToastedShoes said it’s disheartening that people it’s collaborated with don’t get credit for their work. editing, dubbing and creating mods for his videos. However, he said he wouldn’t let that deter him from posting more nonsensical edited gameplay videos. In fact, he plans to do more Elden Ring videos with even more mods.
“If all goes well,” ToastedShoes said, “I’d like to edit the whole of Elden Ring!” May God help us all.
