I have no idea how to post GIFs, since most come out as a grey box on the dashboard, but this accurately describes the next generation of consoles.
As easy as it is to blog on Tumblr, you would think there’d be an easy and straightforward tutorial on how to post GIFs rather than smug cuntshacks and cockslobbers being all secretive like it’s some fucking lost mystical art for the worthy.
Great hardware. Rubbish press conference. Designated pre-rendered trailers are considered tech demos? Timed multiplatform IPs are not exclusives. All entertainment aspects are covered, but at the end of the day, there are more peripherals and services you need to pay for and switch to, to get the full functionality of the console. Sony now knows the hardcore faithful are the ones that keep the system afloat. Just look at the reliability and lifespan of the PS2 and the regrowth of the PS3 community due to Playstation Plus.
The Wii U was a technological marvel, but it’s the same story with XBO. Great features and awesome tech. And they’re both loaded with unnecessary gimmicks. I’ve been waiting for this press conference to make a choice, and as a 360 faithful this current gen, I’m checking out. Especially when 10 minutes of an hour long PC was dedicated to a Call of Duty dev diary. I saw enough to say, “Yeah, I’m getting a PS4.” Mostly due to the simplicity.
Finally, the multitude of dealbreakers. No backwards compatibility. XBO games must be installed to your HDD and attached to your XBL gamertag. If you want to borrow a game from a friend or rent, you’re going to have to pay a fee. Which means after paying money to rent a game from a Redbox machine, you’d also have to pay another fee to use the disc. And since most games need to be installed, I doubt the XBO fee for borrowing/rental would be around $5-7 bucks. How fucked is that when they’re already telling us to pay for XBL with the same Internet we’ve already paid for?
Open casket on them bastards so they all remember me.
Internet Nerds made one hell of a shitstorm commenting about movie RUMORS of having Michael B. Jordan from the movie, Chronicle to play the role of Johnny Storm/Human Torch for the Fantastic Four reboot. I think the biggest crime here is not structural or institutionalized racism from a community that is supposed to be smart, but that dude’s name is Michael B. Jordan. Let that soak in for a bit and realize how cheesy his parents are.
The rest of the article is a good read. For all the forced diversity that has happened recently in our massive consumption of popular culture and media, which I’m sure was met with good intentions, but totally missed the point. It’s like having a white friend ask you about your culture and you explain some aspects of it to him, but he never listened to a word you said. And your white friend interrupts you and starts hitting on your cousin.
All we can say at this point is short and simple.
“Fuckin’ white people” and “The Last Airbender.” That should shut them up for a while. Awkward silences ain’t new.
This is true.
This song is everything to me.

Watch Kanye West’s New Single ‘New Slaves’ Projected in New York | Vulture
Think whatever you want of Kanye or if this gig’s been done by some obscure person. He’s a game changer. No YouTube. No MTV. Just his face plastered for the people on the streets.
And all your rebellious user-generated content that consists of cheesy quotes, sceneries, some random chick with a cigarette, and gifs of obscure British television that made you look cool, will be used to push old corporation Yahoo! (in internet years) to look cool.

|Steven:||Yeah, I don't really like Ezio. I prefer Altair.|
|Me:||Ezio was the best character in the series.|
|Steven:||But Altair was what I believed an Assassin should be. Ezio was TOO Italian for me.|
|Me:||He was an Italian... in Italy.|
