Comments of the Week 38: But the comment is a saddening bore


Cause I wrote it ten times or more

Hello my little Pelicos, it is I FakePlasticTree once again, here to bring you our weekly feature. Is it just me or has gaming news been rather slow lately? It's hard to forget the first months of 2017, but a lot of those big releases back then were generally games that were delayed into said period. 2018 doesn't have that luxury, so far it feels like that we are on a recess. But that's fine, there are a lot of games from 2017 people still need to finish, and Monster Hunter World offers enough poor defenseless animals to slaughter. And I still miss my PS3.

Let's have a look at what you've all been up to the past week!


(Update) Why does Australia hate boobs so much?

FakePlasticTree: Dollarydoos? That's an odd name, I would have called them Chazzwazzers.


Konami unsure why Metal Gear Solid V's 'Nuclear Disarmament' event triggered

FakePlasticTree: Liberal fake news media at it again. Sad!

FakePlasticTree: Konami unsure on how to finish this sentence.


A Beginner's Guide to Monster Hunter: World

FakePlasticTree: Step 3, see a Diablos? Leg it.


Toad isn't wearing a hat, Nintendo confirms


FakePlasticTree: Toad hasn't been allowed on TV ever since he said the n-word.


Super Mario 3D Land, Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and Ultimate NES Remix drop to $20

FakePlasticTree: Can't let you Dew™ that, Dorito Pope.


Subnautica player inadvertently finds and eats another player's beloved pets



Middle-earth: Shadow of War's first major DLC is out today

FakePlasticTree: I like how the orc even looks like Mr. Burns as if to say "Excellent".


Angry Mob to release physical edition of Brawlout on Switch

FakePlasticTree: If there isn't I'll riot!


Upcoming PS4 update includes custom wallpapers, parental controls, and more

FakePlasticTree: Should have chosen "Wisely" as it can't be "Changed Later".


Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 rumored for this year

FakePlasticTree: You jest now, but you'll see. Next they'll bring 2 per year!


This week's Year of the Dog event in Overwatch will bring a new map

FakePlasticTree: Considering the detail they always put into the "asses" on their female characters I'd say they invite "quite a few".


EVO 2018 Championship lineup revealed

FakePlasticTree: No featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry Series for this event.


BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle adds RWBY's Yang Xiao Long, Blake and Yang to be free DLC

FakePlasticTree: If you're really, really good they might even throw you a bone next time.

More evidence points to South Park: The Fractured but Whole coming to Switch

FakePlasticTree: I'd wager even a goat fence would be more effective.


Monsters, Inc. confirmed for Kingdom Hearts III

FakePlasticTree: You know you want it!


Take a listen to the Kingdom Hearts III theme songs

FakePlasticTree: They are going on a road trip to destroy Xehanort, naturally.


Capcom confirms layoffs at its Dead Rising studio

FakePlasticTree: It's all fun and games, until you realize there's people behind all of these games.


Reported Red Dead Redemption 2 leak points to Battle Royale, first-person mode and more

FakePlasticTree: Makes sense too as the creators of TV series adaptation have gone on record to say they were inspired by said game's world, and how its NPCs function.


It's Black History Month so let's talk about our favorite black video game characters

FakePlasticTree: I don't always give KOTOR 1 enough credit but Jolee is the exception to the rule. His anecdotes and stories aren't as cryptic and Shakespearan as Kreia, and his wisdom comes from a life of truly as opposed to platitudes of the Jedi Code. Great character!


Rainbow Six Siege gets a free weekend during Six Invitational tournament

FakePlasticTree: That's the kind of warning I want every game to give me when I venture into the multiplayer.
