Well, Microsoft has bowed to pressure and removed used game restrictions and online necessity. Score one for the consumer.
Um, no. Obama is not a bad person because he wants change. The things he wants to change over to are bad, that is true, but that does not necessarily make him bad on a personal level. I do think he is amazingly narcissistic and there is abundant evidence of that and I think he is not an honest person nor does he hold values which I deem to be honorable or respectable, but I can deal with not liking him on a personal level. I can tolerate people who I do not believe are good people, and therefore it is not personal. Apart from ruining my healthcare,taking more of my income, ridiculing my beliefs, pursuing agendas which i believe are immoral and reprehensible and fighting day and night to discredit my way of thinking, he has done nothing to me. I am more concerned with his plans for this country that I love and the damage he has already done to it. Change is not a bad thing, but Obama’s change, on almost every issue, is entirely bad, and that is why I oppose him and all like him. But again, I never even insinuated that I think he is personally a bad person because he wants to “fundamentally transform” my country.
Anyway that wasn’t even the point of that post. I was just saying that based on the extensive amount of evidence on the personalities of those two which I have seen, George Bush was, in my opinion, a much more likable,humble, person.
I have an idea for reaching out to our children with conservative principles. Three words : Video Game Taxes.
Congratulations! You just won $50,000, for winning that race! You get to keep $30,000!
Your Good Deals have earned you a bag of gold, which you get to keep 60% of! Goblins have a right to free healthcare too, and the mermaids need contraception!
That new upgrade will cost $8,000 + $1,200 in tax! Expect an awesome new road in 20 years!
Easy to throw around insults when you are hiding, isn’t it? I never said it was temporary support. Ole B.O. and Michelle could easily take care of the child as long as they were able. You have, obviously, missed the point. The point being that a child is never a “punishment”, that if possible that child should be given a chance to live. A child born to one of the Obama girls would not be born to into poverty, it would not necessarily have to “ruin” their lives, people would line up to adopt the Obama child if Barry didn’t want to be punished. There are many people who would be financially able to raise their child and provide a luxurious happy life. To choose, instead, to end that life before it begins is immoral. As a man of morals and values, how do you encourage your daughter to abort your grandchild, speaking to the special case of the President of the United States. Quite literally a human lifetime stands in the balance and we are to believe our president would encourage his daughter to end it. Don’t worry, there are plenty of good people willing to raise “punishment” children when cowards like yourself and our president go running.
So…is Obama saying he was punished with two daughters? Father of the year right here.
Happy F day O.
I find it even more telling that Barack and Michelle would encourage an abortion before they would take care of the child themselves. Can we assume he wouldn’t want to be punished with that baby too? I mean God knows they have the financial ability to raise a grandchild. This man is frightening. Seems the teaching of values and morals are entirely rhetoric as well.
Sometimes I wish I could just forget about politics and just not care. It makes it hard to enjoy some forms of entertainment. I have been trying to watch the new season of Arrested Development but any scenes with Herbert Love, whom I assume is based on Herman Cain, contain so much anti-conservative crap that it makes it hard to enjoy at times. Frustrating
This immigration bill is going to be a huge disaster. Marco Rubio and the gang unanimously voted to eliminate the border security provision in the bill and this new bill if passed by Boehner in the house will be the end of the republican party. 70 representatives have vowed to fight the establishment.
Thousands of gamers are upset with Microsoft for the always watching camera in the Kinect. At the same time, they are not worried about the government being able to see and hear all they do.
They will complain, but in the end they will shut up and fork over their money for the Xbox One. The video game industry, just like the government, knows it can do whatever it wants with just a tiny backlash at first.
Im not so sure, there aren’t any alternatives to Government. There are alternatives to the Xbox One. Sure millions will buy them but the PS4 is looking very attractive and with no backwards compatibility, the only incentives for Xbox 360 owners are a name and a gamerscore. Also with a host of great titles announced for the underdog WiiU, some people might just switch there too. Xbox will survive but they will lose a fair amount of customers.
Government aside, Xbox’s sales will sag because of the bad press and dumb decisions they made, but the only people who will abstain from buying it will be us older gamers. The vast majority of it’s sales will be from the younger crowd who will just want their parents to buy both consoles so they don’t fall behind their friends. The biggest backlash will probably be from not being able to sell/trade/lend your games. Other than that, I don’t see MS hurting too bad from this.
I hate it, but the American public just doesn’t value privacy like they used to.
You are probably right, but they also have the whole connectivity issue so they lose anyone without internet or people that don’t want to have to connect every 24 hrs, it is $100 more than the PS4, like you said the used/trade thing is huge, and also they really don’t have the exclusive titles to make it worth it. Nintendo rules exclusivity,PS4 has a few and Microsoft has Halo and that’s about it. They are going to move consoles no doubt but the question is, whether it will be worth it. They will lose money on console sales at least initially I am guessing. You are spot on about the younger generation though.
