Microsoft are the ones that developed the DRM thing. It has nothing to do with retailers. If it had something to do with anything other than their own greed, then I'm sure the PS4 would have had the same restrictions.

What are you on about?
Sgt. Foley was saying he didn't like the direction Microsoft were taking with DRM because retailers suffer, I was pointing out that that was silly.
I wasn't implying retailers were the cause of DRM, lol wtf?

Just flush your eyes/eyelids out with water. If that doesn't get it pinch your eyelids (of the troubled eye) and try to rub whatever it is out, if your eyelids aren't holding whatever it is against your eye you also have the benefit of not feeling it.

It takes two to end a conversation, try talking about something someone might actually care about.

Anyway, I just got back from a trip, and now my room is infested in ants. I saw an ant the size of two grains of rice crawling on my desk. I keep my food there for f*cks sake! I wanted to kill the damn thing, but it was crawling so fast that I only hit part of it (With a pencil eraser) and now there's a huge ant dragging itself around without bottom parts somewhere around here. nervous.gif

e: Alright! I spread cinnamon around the wall cracks and laid honey traps around my desk. Time to neutralize some ants!

Kill it with fire!!
My water bottle cap opened on it's own accord. While it was sideways in my jumper pocket. While half full. In the middle of Glasgow City Centre. I had to walk around with several wet patches down my jeans. Looked like I f*cking pissed myself.

And even if you did kill it you have to be careful about disposing of the body. They will send out patrols to bring back the corpse. Set out the traps. And clean the floor to remove its trail.

Okay, you just proved you didn't read what I typed, even after I re-explained it to you so you would understand what I was saying, let's have a little look at the context of what I said instead of misunderstanding, and then not re-reading it when it was explained to you, I could understand misunderstanding the first time, I can see how you got that impression, but after having it pointed out to you, so you could perhaps re-read what I typed and understand what I actually meant, I would like to think you would understand.

This whole used game thing with the Xbox One is just hurting stores like GameStop.

That's a pretty dumb reason to hate the Xbone, I don't like the DRM Idea at all either though. Sure Jobs there are going to decrease, but they are anyway because of the digital trend, one day there probably won't be any speciality gaming stores, but they can adapt or shut down. Jobs will be created elsewhere, possibly in the digital-game-retail-section, it happens.

Businesses boom, business die, and i'm just looking to earn another dime.

I never said I hate the Xbox One. I'm just not a fan of what it's becoming.

Semantics. I meant that disliking the Direction Microsoft are taking because of game retailers is silly.
It was easier to say "hate" instead.


>Okay so Sgt Foley said: he didn't really like the used game thing with Microsoft because it is hurting retailers.
>I said: "That's a pretty dumb reason to hate the Xbone."
>Foley stated that he didn't hate the Xbone.
> I was then stating that I was just using slang by saying "Hate" I didn't mean it literally.
> I then said "I meant that disliking the Direction Microsoft are taking because of game retailers is silly". By that I meant that Sgt Foley disliking Microsoft's decision to limit used games BECAUSE it injures game retailers that make money from selling used games, is silly.

Like I said already once, and I'll repeat, I was not saying that Microsoft are limiting used games because of Retailers, lol wtf.

You didn't have to go through all that again. I got it the first time you explained it. I was just pointing out in my previous post that the phrasing of that sentence was confusing (hence my initial confusion). Even in the context of the posts you've replied to (which I read the first time too), one could easily assume that the post is implying that Microsoft is taking that direction as a consequence of retailers requesting them to do it.

Ah okay, yeah I can see how you misunderstood the first time.

I'm rather annoyed at myself for being too scared to do trivial things, like writing a long comment then thinking that the tone is just a bit too aggressive and deleting it; presently it's wanting and not wanting to submit something into the writer's section because what if I'm doing it wrong? and oh my all these are poems or chapters, are short stories allowed?, reading a few then just writing this instead of submitting because I know this is welcome here. Bleh.

On a similar note, I 'fear' if people on this forum don't 'approve' or 'like' things I write. Yup, it's an idea that's in my head more often than not when posting on this forum... As you may have guessed, I'm also ridiculously quiet, shy, introverted etc. etc. in real life, so it's nothing new worrying about all this. It's just annoying and I want peace and quiet from myself sometime >:(

Oh damn, I didn't brush my teeth. Looks like tonight's sleep will not be easy again.

For comedy Youtubers I watch guys like:
-NigaHiga
-RayWilliamJohnson
-Chestersee

For fun gameplays, I watch mostly Seananners, and also the people he plays with:
- Juicetra
-AllShamNoWow
- Hutch
-EatMyDiction

Watching Seannaners DayZ series was hilarious, they are long episodes, but there's 30 of them, and they made me laugh so much.

Hear me out on this one.

When Mass Effect 3 came out I picked it up. I never played ME1 or ME2 so I asked if just jumping into ME3 would be OK. People said "I had to play ME1 and ME2 first". So I did...and I really enjoyed the experience.

I was excited to import my guy into ME3 but my character didn't show on the import screen. I popped in my ME2 disc and watched the closing segment again and even let the credits roll through to the end.

That didn't change things - I still couldn't import my character.

So during some downtime today I decided to search the internet to see if it was a known issues. My search returned a bunch of stuff that got me excited.

After reading a bunch of stuff that didn't apply to me I came across my exact issue.if you die at the end of ME2 you won't be able to import your character.

Now I don't want to play ME3.

Waaaa. Yes my whole crew died and it was somewhat upsetting. Actually it was down right depressing.

I don't get much game time or I would play through again.

Besides that stuff there's tons of stuff to do on the internet, just nobody ever uses it like they should/could. sad.gif
