Doom Eternal

Looks like in order to combat demons from hell, the Doom developers thought to airdrop messenger bags probably filled with Swiss ready-made bricks of fondue onto the battlefield:

Ready-made fondue bags in Doom Eternal

I find this rather unfortunate, since every Swiss person knows that freshly made fondue with your own selection of cheeses, with or without Kirsch and matched to the right sort of white wine is the best. Ready-made supermarket stuff can never quite compete. It’s almost as bad as ready-made rösti!

What a disappointment, Bethesda.

This is not the first time the Stranger Things team makes this mistake, look at the lifeguard fanny pack Eleven and Max find:

You can clearly see that this isn’t watertight. It would never keep your Swiss chocolate in edible shape. Boo. Boo, Netflix. 10 points docked for ruining our suspension of disbelief.
