Comments of the Week 34: I’d like to be on Comments of the Week!

In TheLimoMaker’s garden in the shade!

Hello my little beetles, FakePlasticTree here! We are well into the new year already and I miss having a functioning PS3, and have yet to require a proper replacement. So, while I wait and look for a new one, I’ve been spending time playing more Yakuza Ishin. I really love it; it might be one of the best Yakuza titles, even beating most of the main ones. It’s a really engaging game.

Any games you lot have set your sights on beating? Well, in any case, let’s hear from the community with some Comments of the Week!

EA filed a patent in 2016 to tinker with online matchmaking for better player engagement

FakePlasticTree: CotW is not always fun and games; sometimes there is truth. As the gaming community proved to Microsoft a few years ago, having your console be always online is very anti-consumer, especially when taking those people who don’t have high-speed, functioning internet into consideration. Single player games have never been stronger, and Gravity Rush 2 shows that you can do neat things with online components – but they shouldn’t be the seed and entire frickin’ apple tree of the product. And that’s enough rambling, onward!

And that wraps it up for that week, and by that week I mean last week as this one got up a tad bit late. Blame internet problems, which only brings me back to the point I made earlier about why “always online” is still not the ideal way to go for gaming yet. But enough about me, look forward to the next issue which I imagine should be up not too long after this one! It’s gonna be delivered to us by our very own dependable LimoMaker!

Stay Safe!
