Keeps getting better: Xbox1 will only work if it's online and the Kinect voice authorisation means you can't even turn it on unless the owner (of the Live account, so no multiple logins) is present to tell it to switch on.

It's like they're trying to outdo Sony's attempts to sabotage the PS3's launch last generation. "We're not going to do ANYTHING right!"

So ALWAYS ONLINE is a thing now after all.


Good bye, any chance of my buying an XB1.

Here's a video series of a feminist about female tropes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6p5A...FO7wRQ&index=2

and here are the counter arguments which have more points, one of the video is also done by a woman so that it's more gender balanced.

On the plus side, I can finally play my copy of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit online now. On the down side, I actually was okay with the concept. I got to play the campaign for whatever I paid for the used game (basically, whatever was on the physical disk that I bought), and EA got their ten bucks if I decided to use their servers to play online. Companies like EA (voted Worst Company in America two years in a row) don't just walk away from money like this. They'll just figure out another way to screw us.

How about a list of action stars who HAVEN'T been asked to be in an Expendables movie? (And what does Jackie Chan bring to the table that Jet Li doesn't? Other than being a Red stooge, that is.)

Though I bought it when it first came out, I recently finished Hitman: Absolution. Let me start by saying I'm a HUG fan of the Hitman series. I like action and gunplay in video games, but the random massive scale of the violence in games like Saint's Row and GTA get to be, aside from completely unbelievable, a bit much for me. And it's really no-thought-involved gameplay.

Hitman: Absolution was, much like the most recent Star Trek reboot, a great action game, but it didn't feel like a Hitman game. The elements are all there. You have instanced levels, you have weapons and disguises to use and collect, and the stealth and patience are all present. However, you're not out on a contract basis and the entire plot of the game is a personal vendetta not an assassin taking out sanctioned targets. While I thoroughly enjoyed the gameplay, I miss the classic Agent 47 game.

Next up, lvling all 8 of my toons on SWTOR. Guh.

Well ok so the new Hitman game is where you're not playing an actual hitman...granted. Still it's fun.


Oh and SWTOR just stopped being fun.
