First let me say my rant isn’t about the fact that this is just a controller that’s price is almost as much as some systems.

My issue is I can’t %€#_=$€/£^¥ find one to €%$€%’*^( buy and I’m pissed as a  %$&’&”‘.

Really, I shouldn’t have to beg.

Chief marketing officer had this to say “Here’s the product we totally underestimated, if I could have built 10 times the number I built, I would have.”

Really Microsoft?!

You release something new and hyped about on 10/27, just when people are almost ready to start shopping for the holiday.

“Announced at e3 the controller boats hair-trigger locks, improved thumbs tick sensitivity and swappable compensation including two different D-pads. There is also button remapping”

Let’s take a look–

OOOOOoooOOO

AAAaaaHHhhhhhH

Oh what the shit?!

Current estimates are for as far put as March now. But still, how does this happen for a company this large?

It’s like it was set up to fail.

Now something that is in stock and available for purchase…

xbox-one-elite-bundle-64

The bundle.

Yes, a 1TB ssd Xbox One and the new controller sold together for around $500.

Oh fine I guess I’ll just spend $500 on something I only wanted to spend $150 on.

You may think that was sarcasm, but sadly no, that’s my plan right now.

There were other reasons for that decision as well, but the main one being I can find another way of getting the controller without being ripped off by some 3rd party seller. So I guess I’ll just get the bundle.

Wait a minute…

What if that was their plan all along.

Tricky bastards.

GG!

I’ll try not to get too political here.
But in a time of over eager and over armed police force, games that portray such actions may seem inappropriate.

But maybe not.

For one, in the main story, you are rewarded for solving your cases while disarming and capturing criminals alive. (Fat lot of good it does you though)

(no spoilers)

I’ll go ahead and get to my point.

It’s possible to play this game online (and be productive) without worrying about your K/D.

Yes, as strange as it may seem to most the people I’ve played with online, it is possible. And pretty easy.

Now this fact is important to my point, I mainly play hotwire.

A new game mode in which you capture a base, that happens to be a vehicle that you need to drive quickly.

So your main objective is to either drive or repair so other guy can keep driving.

Now if you wanted to you could be that guy who just hides and blows up enemy cars. And I know, that can be fun sometimes. Believe me, I love explosions as much as the next action hero.

I just like the fact the I can be in the top 5 or so, with faaaaaar more deaths than kills. One match I went 2/12 and was still 3rd on the leaderboard.

Here’s some stats.

Impressive? No, not really. But thats my point. Most these matches I’ve won despite my less than average K/D.

image

It’s definitely been fun. And I’ll keep trying to improve my playing but in the mean time, I’m just glad I can still be a good teammate.

But the way I see it, at least I’m trying. So…

GG!

Edit: playing as a hacker is also a lot of fun. Puts rts into it. Which wasn’t my thing before, but I’ve really started to dig it.

How I see myself

Minecraft had been added to the xbox one store! And if you already had it on your 360 live account it would only be 4.99. (However of you had disk based you would need to still have your old disk and console)

If that was too difficult to read

Minecraft!!!!!

#MinecraftXbox1 will be out 5th of September

Anyone who knows me though, knows I love Minecraft. And I have been waiting what feels like forever for it to come to next(now current) gen consoles.

While PS4 players still have to wait a bit, project man Daniel Kaplan had this to say-And Sony friends – you will get a Minecraft surprise soon..or maybe sooner?! 😉

While of course I do not support console wars….

bestfriends

I can’t help but be a little hopeful that the One comes out first.

But to be fair M$ has been on this bandwagon longer.

 

But for anyone else interested

Owners of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition can upgrade for just $4.99* USD, or new players can download the full game for $19.99 USD. All downloadable content players have purchased for the Xbox 360 Edition is available free for re-download on Xbox One.

And

With worlds up to 36 times larger than on Xbox 360, now there’s an even bigger canvas to create on. Transfer your favorite Xbox 360 worlds and content to the Xbox One Edition so you won’t lose your creations. Join a community of 13-million-plus Minecraft fans on Xbox Live that are continually laying down imaginative creations. And, with the widest range of downloadable content on console, you’ll never run out of new worlds to explore with four player split-screen on one console or up to eight players over Xbox Live

Well now that I have calmed down and stopped hyperventilating, I can now tell you, if for some reason you have not played Minecraft or are one of those people who don’t “get it”, please for the love of Notch try it again!

Just imagine a world of legos that you can build and explore in. Just have fun!

Well GG!

Hope to see you all in Minecraftia

Lower*

Like I have said before,

Microsoft would eventually be selling a Xbox One with out the Kinect at a lower price.

Well now we have some official news about just that.

And more!!!!

 

 

 

Beginning June 9th, there will be a Xbone for $399 being sold Kinectless.

Fine by me

 

On top of that there is more good news for everyone with a Xbox

  • Games for gold (for the One) are coming in June
  • Exclusive discounts for everyone and even better ones if you have Gold
  • More and more entertainment apps! That you can use with out Gold!

Well feel free to read the full report here.

But long story short, June is a very good time to get an Xbox, if you haven’t already.

So GG!
