Where’s my fracking Xbox Live?
If you don’t already know Xbox Live is down at the moment. So what to do in the mean time?
- Play offline? Who the hell does that anymore? I’m looking at you PS2 players, who think they’ve played on-line when they don’t really know what on-line is unless it’s Socom.
- Go outside? It’s raining. Scratch that.
- Go back to my Xbox or PS2? Can’t bring my self to do it. I can’t play a game without points anymore. Give me my points and I’ll be happy. Yes, I’m a point’s whore. You can’t tell by my embarrassing gamer-score though (see right side column). I’m not as bad as Jeff Gerstmann over at Gamespot though.
- How about actually hanging out and talking to people in the same room as me? Nope. To old fashioned and overrated.
Maybe I’ll just have to be in withdrawal today from Xbox Live. I can’t stand not having that integrated Live experience anymore. Have I become an Xbox Fanboy? Is this part of the evil Microsoft plain to get me hooked on playing with people around the world I don’t personally know. If so, it’s working. Now Sony and/or Nintendo have to convince me that they can do better.
