Comments of the Week: ‘What a journey Bungie’s had’
We round up the best of the correspondence VGC has received this past week
We spend all week writing words for you, our dear readers, so it’s only fair that we read the words you write back at us.
Comments of the Week is our new weekly section in which we look at our favourite:
- Comments posted in our articles
- Replies to our tweets
- Messages in the VGC Discord server (join us!)
- Comments on our YouTube videos
To qualify for Comments of the Week, a comment doesn’t have to necessarily be amusing (though it certainly helps its chances). It can be a good point, an interesting observation or, on occasion, something so ridiculous it has to be called out.
It should go without saying, but if you want to have a chance of being featured in Comments of the Week in the future then be sure to comment on our articles, reply to our tweets, comment on our YouTube videos and join our Discord server. We’ll take it from there.
Here’s what made the cut this week.
Comments of the week
Microsoft’s CEO claims the Activision deal will help it ‘build the next internet’
“They make movies about how machines enslave people but it will be people who create the matrix.
“Imagine solving the housing, and homeless, and criminal, and the poor, and anyone else the elites don’t want to be bothered with being arrested and plugged into the metaverse permanently.”
Alright LordCancer Kain, steady on mate. Not the cheeriest thing to read while I’m having my cereal.
Microsoft comments on acquisition approval: ‘Even with Activision Blizzard, we’ll be number three’
“It doesn’t make sense to consider them a monopoly when Tencent and Sony are still above them in market share even after the Activision–Blizzard acquisition.
“You also have Amazon and Netflix aggressively entering the gaming space, and that doesn’t even count Steam, Epic, and everyone else.”
We’ve no doubt this will be the argument Microsoft will be putting forward when the deal is investigated, Snow White Walker.

“Yep, RIP Horizon Forbidden West”
– Realist Not Idealist
Yeah, take that Forza Hori… hang on, wait. What?
Team17 has swiftly cancelled its Worms NFT plans following a backlash
“This whole announce-retract thing seems to have become routine for publishers.
“It makes me wonder if, like loot boxes before it, new games will be promoted as having ‘no NFTs’ – expecting praise for not ruining their own game.”
If it starts happening, McShifty, we’re blaming you.
Tweets of the week
That’s exactly why we work on a website now, @SamuelWRoberts.
@Terak404 must be a time traveller, because this appears to be an actual photo from the awards ceremony.
Too soon, @Robot_Cooper.
If we didn’t know any better, we’d think @Pyke_64 was being a tiny bit sarcastic.
We’ve got to admit, we’re inclined to agree with @NovemberNicNaps, that’s how you do a game intro.
We know what you mean, @Sisslethecat. That studio’s had more ups and downs than… wait. So THAT’S why it’s called Bungie.
