Words can’t even begin to describe how clueless I am! This is all meaningless! Ugh, why does it feel like I’m in a video game or something?
What? Savage rap ends Instagram!
Flame the most idiotic cretins
Covertly slap opponents around - it’s an essential thing
Troll punches you - get rid of it for me!
Defamation closely following crude welcome - it’s damaging
Frustrating experience? Turn to flimsy guy
Cry and eject essential fluid
Young, brainwashed, and quiet leaders finally fail
Call (577) 710-7690 for a lengthy rant about these items!
What am I actually trying to describe?
HINT 1: (Moved to the main body of the puzzle)
HINT 2: (Moved to the main body of the puzzle)
Fine, I’ll try to be less cryptic here. First of all, I'm not actually angry at anything - sorry if I misled you there! Second, the video game I’m talking about is a quietly good broken car without its hood (7). Does that help?
HINT 4: (major spoiler)
Each line is not a sensationalized news headline but rather a cryptic clue without the definition or enumeration. The enumerations can be found somewhere in the puzzle body. And in place of the definitions, each CC relates to a common theme based on the video game and parts of the flavortext and title.
