After hitting 200,000 Gamerscore in September I took a little time to myself. I don't know how these people keep pushing to 300k and beyond; they are thoroughbreds in my book. So what's next on my agenda the three people (if I am lucky) who will read this will ask? Probably not a whole lot. I doubt I will get the Xbox One. If I do, it won't be until Titan Fall or Dragon Age 3. PS4? I doubt that too. Finances aside, I am pretty content with the 20+ games I haven't touched yet. Hell, I might switch to the Wii U for some fun times.
Overall, I am becoming more and more disgusted with some of the things Microsoft is doing for "marketing" their products. Since the new dashboard appeared, I have only felt like Microsoft was trying to sell me on stuff non video game related. I understand that to some Netflix, movies, and other apps are integral for their optimal Xbox experience but for me, fuck off Microsoft. The dashboard is one big ad. "You played Guitar Hero World Tour, we recommend you buying this DLC for Guitar Hero 2" or "Buy this expansion for this game" when I already own the season pass. If they can recommend purchases based on purchase and game history how does DLC from a season pass slip through the cracks? The only things keeping me on Microsoft's side are most of my friends have the 360 or now Xbox One and their 12 Days of Xbox sale near the holiday season.
Another topic that enrages me is Microsoft's Games with Gold in response to the far superior Playstation's PS Plus.
Thank you so much for offering these free games Microsoft: Fable 3 (2010), Assassin's Creed 2 (2009), Crackdown (2007), Dead Rising 2 (2010), Rainbow Six Vegas (2006), Halo 3 (2007), and Gears of War (2006).
During the same time this is what Playstation Plus offered: Little Big Planet Karting (2012), Uncharted 3 Single Player (2011), XCOM: Enemy Unknown (2012), Saints Row 3 (2011), Hitman Absolution (2012), Hotline Miami (2012), Borderlands 2 (2012), Dragon Dogma: Dark Arisen (2012), Poker Night 2 (2013).
In summation, I don't know if I will purchase all consoles like I said I would. I might go to the Master Race and be an uppity asshole like everyone already there is.
