I would imagine this is part of a service where you download your games instead of purchasing discs, so it would want to check in to make sure you haven't tampered with the software.
It would be unrealistic and unnecessary to have a constant internet connection the entire time you are using the device.
Connecting back every day or week is not going to break the lolz

Also who are these people without reliable internet? I used to live in AUSTRALIA, the asshole of the world and even there we had 100mbit cable

2. The tickling on your tongue when you touch a 9volt battery. (dont do this take my word for it)

3. The word Gable.
