Thus far, my favourite of them all!
Thus far, my favourite of them all!
I’m sitting here, minding my own business when I get a message on Xbox (baring in mind, I’m not actually playing anything, it’s just idle in the background)
I open the message from PutzLumpeHD to find it’s a German person randomly hurling abuse at me! Ok, so maybe I shot him a few thousand times on Battlefield 3 and he’s raging… fair enough.
As with all messages of this kind, I go to submit a review. I then discover that I’ve never played a single game with or against this person as I’m unable to submit a review!!
Interesting to say the least!
Complaint filed (as there was racial insults included).
Would people be as comfortable buying meat if the date the animal was KILLED was displayed alongside the ‘best before’ date? Consumers should remember that meat is the dead flesh from a once living breathing sentient animal who didn’t want to die.
actually i would feel more comfortable. it would make choosing fresher meat easier. thats a very good idea.
when vegan ideas backfire completely
I think it’s fair to say that no animal WANTS to die but, try telling a lion not to tear a zebra’s throat out and see what kind of result you get. On a semi-related note, they should totally put kill dates in Battlefield 4’s multiplayer when you take someone’s tags :D
The recent positive hype over Microsoft’s Xbox One has met its first downer with the announcement that the Xbox One is not backwards compatible. This means that owners of previous games from Xbox Live will not be able to transfer them over to the new console.
Wait, what!? People saying it’s a “nail in the coffin” because you can’t play your old games that you probably don’t play anyway? Cry me a fucking river, the SNES and Genesis weren’t and the PS4 isn’t either.
I’ll start by addressing the issue arising in regards to the lack of games featured.
From a PR perspective, this is a clever move for Microsoft. It means they’ll have something interesting to show at E3 in a few weeks instead of recycled footage from the conference.
Now for the rest.
I’m neither an Xbox nor PS3 fanboy (fuck it, I own both!) but, where the PS4 reveal left me amazed by the level of detail it was capable of, the only “real” footage that I can remember was from Kill Zone, Drive Club and the creepy floating old man head :|
In retrospect, Microsoft have done the same! Forza and EA showed us “game footage” (really?) while CoD: Ghosts did a very good job of leaving us, literally, in the dark (Seriously, 70%+ of that trailer was at night/in dark areas).
However, Microsoft have shown us a console and not just gone:
“Look, a controller! Wheeeee!”
and while both left me underwhelmed, I found Microsoft’s to be a little more interesting… apart from when they went on for ages about sports games, urk! They’ve also said that it will be released world-wide this year rather than just go:
“Umm… maybe this year somewhere in the world!”
Like Sony though, they’ve not given us an idea of the loan we’ll be needing to get from our banks!
Microsoft have dangled the bait and, there are those of us who are not interested (I’m looking at you, Sony purists!), those who bite without question and finally, those who wait to see if there is something else more edible being put out later. I’m safely in that last group.
So, in short:
The new Xbox is connecting everything you own together like a child with a keen interest in super glue and the Kinect actually seems to have a function now instead of being a bit of a novelty item… it can also see your controller without the need for a light being on it
Were my socks blown off?
Not really but, other than EA going on about how amazing FIFA will be (¬___¬), I was interested in the whole thing as a piece of tech and it will be interesting to see some of these new IP’s come E3.
I guess the console war has officially begun. However, until E3, it’s anyone’s “victory” to take!
NEW X BOX REVEALED!
I’m recording the Xbox Reveal… whatever it may be because I know I’ll get distracted and forget loads of it :P
I was going to come home after work and write something thought provoking that would get a million notes… instead, I ate some food and sat here wondering why I was still awake!
As a result, here is an old image of some Street Fighter characters, some old pencil work I guess, at least it gives you something to look at tonight!
