We’re so close to October that I can smell the sleepless nights from here. Super Mario Odyssey, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Forza Motorsport 7, South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Destiny 2‘s PC release… so many games to cover, so little time. It’s a good job we’re hiring a new Lead Editor, otherwise I’d never find the time to leave my office.
But that’s enough about next month: let’s take a look at what you guys have been up to over the course of the past week. We’ve had a lot of discussion surrounding Destiny 2, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite and Valve over the course of the past seven days, and we’ve compiled some of our most popular comments from our lovely readers below in this week’s The People Speak.. Take a look:

Comment: Let’s just skip anything with a 3 in it since Valve is scared of that number. Anyone down for some Portal 4?
Forget Half-Life 3, Portal 3 or Left 4 Dead 3, what we really need is some Day of Defeat 2. Right, guys? Guys..?

Comment: Had they rewarded better gear (for myself), I would’ve gladly joined the [New Monarchy] for Making Earth Great Again.
That’s how the fascists get you: first with the catchy slogans, then with the Legendary Hand Cannons.
Comment: My PC in my childhood had a disc drive that would sometimes destroy CDs. It would go “vrooom!” and then followed by “KRRRRRRRKKKKKK!” and spit out CD shards. Amusing in hindsight, terrifying when experienced.
That sounds like a fun game-within-a-game to me — before you load up your crappy CD-Rom game, try desperately to ensure that your PC doesn’t eat the disk and waste your parents’ hard-earned money. 7/10.
Comment: Could it possibly be the complete and total lack of advertising? Before I saw this article I had never even heard of the game’s existence.
Capcom adopted a unique marketing tactic for Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite in that they barely advertised it, tried to keep its release as discreet as humanly possible and then waited until it inevitably bombed. They succeeded!
Comment: You know that one stupid, shoehorned-in social experience that seems to be a prerequisite for all the latest Assassin’s Creed games? I want Michel Ancel to make BG&E2 nothing but that.
Please, let’s not give them ideas.
Comment: Solution? Make a handheld that doubles as a phone.
*Cough* N-Gage *cough*.
