Interesting article, looking forward to the next.

It's great to see an insight into what gaming is like over there. As you say everything is so Western-focused these days, I had no ideas there would be so few servers provided.

Yeah it does kinda suck here.

There are certain "perks" to being in Asia though, plenty of free games, but they're all second rate, crappy quality. I'll talk about them more in Part 2. Glad to hear you enjoyed this one :)
