So..what have you been playing? Pikmin 3 on the Wii U? Cool..cool, cool, cool.
Well the rest of the planet has been playing Grand Theft Auto V, and more specifically attempting to access the other 50% of the the game with GTA Online. The results, as per Rockstar's caveat, have been bumpy. Slow load times, overwhelmed servers, and a general cluster-fuck have been what's greeted players attempting to play the online component.
Which is fine. This is, after all, a massive petri dish on Rockstar's part and if ever there was a publisher with goodwill to spare, it's Rockstar. Expect slow lobbies and the occasional boot from a server, but give it a day, Rockstar is basically the Google of game developers and they've got all of this well in hand. That being said the animal kingdom is not so easily placated.
