Sundays are a time for shivering into a hole. Before you bubble on the pavement, here''s a look at this week''s best games writing (and game related stuff).
Ethan Davidson, a former basketball player, wrote on The Washington Post that video game developers want fair online games, but others don''t. I get that streaming is a tough job and streamers want to put on a show, but also, like, come on. Yes, it''s fun seeing a highly skilled player destroy a lobby of newcomers, but it''s also interesting seeing how they stack up against those on their levels. Of course, it''s not fair to matching players who want a chill
Perfecting high kill streaks or stringing together multiple crushing victories in less balanced matches is a labor issue for Jordan HusKerrs Thomas, a popular streamer and a competing Call of Duty: Warzone player. It also affecting the top 1% of players/streamers the most because it allows us to sweat or try hard for good content and to entertain our viewers.

For NBC News, Regina Kim explained why K-pop idols and K-dramas don''t reflect the tastes of their country. An interesting explanation for the differences between "K culture" and "Korean culture," with one being built for exports and the other less so.

However, this type of clickbait journalism has created a very skewed and menacing

The testers were also conscientious about being surveilled. A couple of sources informed Kotaku that QA workers would have their breaks timed or sometimes even sent to restrooms by non-management employees. According to them, these otherwise normal testers, however, were reluctant to show up for a job, even if their restroom breaks were scheduled.
Rich Stanton said on how we''re worse off without E3, for PC Gamer. While I enjoyed my time in LA covering Geoff Fest, I agree that something is necessary. I appreciate the sheer amount of streams and announcements. I miss the spectacle of an E3 and myself! Today, I feel like I''m ready to be disappointed by a showcase, where E3 had me buzzing before it even began.
E3 was always a catnip, because it was forcing these giant corporations into a convention center and saying show us what you got. It may be that the disasters are more memorable, but there''s also something you get from a live crowd, according to Ikumi Nakamra. "We are making a fresh kind of action-adventure game it''s spooky!"
People Make Games has created an excellent video exposing the Ukrainian game devs in attempting to defeat Russia''s invasion. It''s a must-have.
