FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Nintendo Patents 'Massively Single-Player Online Game'

Posted on Friday, August 12 @ 12:06:52 Eastern by


Just what the fuck is Nintendo thinking? They've just applied to patent the idea of a "Massively Single-Player Online Game". Single-player pretty much defeats the entire purpose of "massively" and "online". Although they do give an example of the thought process, it sounds pretty shitty:

Those who want to play games that are more dynamic, not-based on Al and not-pre-scripted like multiplayer games, however, don't want to 'deal' with other people, appreciate the privacy it provides.

Gotta love how Nintendo views social interaction as "dealing" with other people. It's a single-player experience, but they say users won't be alone. Others will be playing in these "massive" worlds, but you won't be able to see them until you've friended them.

C'mon Nintendo, give up the fucking friend codes already. I love me some Nintendo, but this idea sucks ass.
