So far, we've had Fable III (one of the worst games of all time in my opinion) and an arcade game that isn't one of the two games I actually wanted to play and was told would kick off the program to begin with. This is almost insulting. This is like going to an old-timey hot dog stand on some street corner in New York City every single day for three years, always getting the most loaded, expensive hot dog the guy has, and one day you show up and he's like, "Oh hey, it's you. You've been coming here constantly for years and I really appreciate that, so I wanted to give you something on the house." and he hands you a used napkin.

Microsoft does not support used napkins. You have to pay additional money for that napkin but you never have to swap out napkins again!

oh wait nevermind, they removed their DRM

they really just don't give a shit anymore about their image?

Ideas for the future:

- Bomberman Act Zero (a fantastic game)

- Halo 1 (one of those niche titles that no one has played)

- Lair (A once PS3 exclusive, now on Xbox! PS3 release version. Not compatible with Kinect. Good luck playing without Sixaxis.)

- Exclusive DLC for all games you own or will own in the future. (It's called DRM and online check-ins.)

- Kinect Plus (Similar to PS+, except it can see through your clothes and sets off an alarm when you have a boner, shutting the console down.)

- E.T. (A once Atari exclusive, now on Xbox!)

- The Walking Dead Game, Episode 3 (Hope you have Episodes 1 and 2! Except we really don't.)

- A trip to the dentist. (Our best offer yet! Not available without insurance, proof of purchase of an Xbox 360, birth certificate, 24-hour online check-ins, 120 GB of free space on your HDD, and a signing of a contract that you agree to never mention anything Microsoft employees may or may not have said at 2013's E3...or ever. Other requirements may apply if we feel like adding them later or whatever... Now away with you, swine!)

EDIT: FYI, it wouldn't let me post this because of "explicit language," until I changed "erektion" (with a "c" instead of the "k") to "boner."

MS: Hey guys, it Microsoft

Consumers: *bleep* you Microsoft

MS: Whaaat!?

Consumers: You lied to us, MS. First of all, you come across as a decent wife/husband/console, but lately, you've tried to lock me in the house, force me to pay taxes for your services, prevent me from changing ISP's and generally abusing your power and testing my loyalty to point where I want a divorce/new console.

Microsoft: Okay, I know I've been a bitch, and i'm trying to change my ways. Hey, I'll make it up to you by giving you a free copy of a game I produced, and then I'll give you another half a month later. It'll be a surprise!

Consumer: Alright, I'll take my free game, earn myself some gamerscore. But if I end up with some shitty backwash tower defense game, then I'm going straight to your cousin.

(Nice little script there for you guys. Not professional, but certainly more honest than what MS can offer you!)

So Microsoft is officially Cartman. That one guy that by himself is pretty hilarious until you realize that your actually friends with him and then he's just an ungrateful asshole you wish was dead but because you called him buttmunch once he abused your parents, grounded them into chili and fed you the simpsons, your favorite childhood cartoon while forcing your friends to eat your parents for $50.


Is today National Analogy day?

drogo baggins I can say asshole but I can't say ra--"sexually abused". Yeah this censor thing is top notch.

Australia censors everything. The real reason Microsoft dropped DRM was because Australia didn't like the fact that anyone other than them was *bleep*ing their citizens.

their like big brothers, they'll protect you from bullies because they want to bully you themselves.

Personally, I was going to say abusive mother, but sure, older brothers do that.

I'm not a man of politics, so I can't give an educated opinion on the political state of down under. But flat-out preventing merchandise into your country because of how it portrays certain scenarios is ridiculous. I'm 100% sure an Australian citizen knows what to expect in a game like Saints Row IV or State of Decay, and if they don't like it, they don't buy it. If they like it, they buy it. No need to stranglehold your subjects like slaves, and force them to enjoy themselves how you say. That just borders dictatorship.

Damn you Australia. Making British people write shorts on your terrible laws at midnight.

Weren't the first two The Walking Dead and Fable 3? Sure Fable 3 is garbage (IMO) but the Walking Dead game is pretty intense, and I haven't played it until I got it for free. This... well, I suppose I expected full retail games, not a $10 game I have no interest in. I'm looking forward to Assassins Creed 2, and Halo 3. I have barely played the Assassins Creed series, and while I already have Halo 3, it's one of my favorite games of all time, and needs a serious population boost. I don't wanna sound like a Microsoft fanboy, I am displeased with this news, but the free games could get better... Or maybe they'll bring back Yaris.

The walking dead wasn't part of the deal. That would be something that gamers might actually want.
