Neal is busy playing games this week and getting ready for a big event which will be named later. But in the meantime, he’s definitely not spending his cash on microtransactions, a practice that he believes does so much more harm than good for the gaming community.
Having conquered Pokemon Shield, The Skirmisher Sayatovich was a little puzzled because he only dumped 36 hours into the game. Pokemon titles normally take up to 110 hours to complete. The reason: a shortened game with extra content via paid DLC. Why are gamers putting up with this?
This week The Skirmisher is racking his brain trying to figure out why so much effort is being put into remaking Final Fantasy VII when there are so many other worthy contenders that would make for a more fun experience. You know, like the game with the foul-mouthed squirrel and all the blood, or the best JRPG ever made.
Neal Sayatovich grabs the reins of his new Skirmisher column this week, taking over the retired Hardcore slot. And for his first time out, he’s taking on his beloved Nintendo Switch in an ‘The emperor has no clothes’ moment of either insanity or clarity. Come on in and see what kind of fun Skirmisher Sayatovich will get into on his new regular soapbox.
