  1. What color is the sky in Redmond?

    So, yes, I'm not entirely pleased with the new Xbox One, particularly in that they are locking all games to your ID and console, much like Xbox Live Arcade games today. One truly amazing thing, though, is how deluded they are in thinking there's absolutely nothing wrong with this.

    Let's analyze the words of Microsoft VP Phil Harrison and see just how life is different from Bizzaro Microsoft world compared to the one we all live in. more...

  2. The Xbox One: Initial thoughts, not altogether positive

    The new Xbox has been revealed at a big event on Microsoft's campus in Redmond. It will be called the "Xbox One", coming out later this year. Ultimately, it looked cool, but nothing groundbreaking. What worries and even angers me, is the information that's coming from off-stage. more...

  3. The journey of 100,000 points starts with the first bleep-bloop

    I unlocked my first achievement on the Xbox 360 way back on April 7th, 2006. Since then, I have earned a total of 89,950 Gamerscore from over 4,600 achievements across 258 games. That averages out to about 35 points per day. It also puts me pretty close to the six-digit level.

There was a game going for $30 that I thought might be a nice one for one of my boys, and with the bonuses for pre-ordering, that was like getting a free game! Seemed like a great deal to me.

  5. You're not worth the wait.

    Every so often, more often than I care for, I get an invite to play Halo Reach while I'm in the middle -- or even close to the end -- of a Firefight game. In a minute or two, my game ends, and I'm back in the lobby -- only to find that the person who just sent me an invite is now searching for a Matchmaking game.

    So, you wouldn't wait two minutes for me to finish my game, but you want me to wait (assuming the join works and actually puts me into the queue; not always a sure thing ...
