Good on them for doing the right thing. Bad on them for insulting their customers for the last month. They can kiss my ass and I'll hold on to my $500.

I'll repeat what I said on another post here so it can be said.

Microsoft never "insulted" it's customers. It tried something new, and unlike all the comparisons to Steam when it launched, it didn't stick to it's guns. If Microsoft said the 24 hour check in is to combat piracy and help game manufacturers and it's only for online play", or better verbiage, not as many people would backlash. All Microsoft did was implement the cloud, which is coming, whether people like it or not, and try to push it. Essentially M+ pulled a Qwikster, the thing that nearly bankrupt Netflix because they wanted to push online, but Netflix had to pull out. Steam on the other hand spent years sticking to their policies and constantly changing and providing feedback, but never compromising on it's infrastructure that it set to create. Most companies will not put in that effort to get the huge reward. Which is why Steam is one of the most used gaming services around, and Sony forced Microsoft's hand. I'll get both consoles, just not at launch.

Hmm. I thought I had AdBlock on.

This is relevant because why?

When is the stream going to be archived? I missed it I was at work, I saw it after the fact. However the commentary makes it priceless, any info would be great.

Thanks Duder

I don't really got much to say about all this but thanks @fierrze for letting me know. I haven't turned on my Xbox since Bioshock Infinite.

I just beat the game @patrickklepek . It was worth it. Alot of people have their opinions, and will argue over anything. But when you turn the cranks that are forgotten memories. It kind of made me remember what it was like before my Step Dad died. I didn't exactly love him like a father. He was a verbally and physically abusive drunk. But there's that moment when you remember the good things. So good on you Patrick. It may have taken me a little under a year to play it, but thanks for recommending it.

Couple new screen shots that definitely set the games tone.
