Hai I am Matt and this was a triumph. I am fifteen and video games are my life. Not in a die because I didn't/pee because I was leveling up kind of way. It is just how I spend all of my spare time. Destructoid has the awsomest community evar if I do say so for myself. I like to play Half-Life, Halo, Command and Conquer, Army of Two, Rainbow Six, Team Fortress, Gmod, Stalker, and Enemy Territory and basically any other good games. My Live name is Mad Matt 92 if you want to play. Also Cawks
Best CD Evar in my opinion.
Ok so here is the story. Last night I was at my aunts house and I was really bored. My freind Josh called me to tell me about something that happened to him in Mass Effect. After that he asked if wanted to come over and play halo or something. I said by the time I go home it will be to late. My freind then said its not to late. That made me think of the Three Days Grace song Never to Late. I was like Josh I just thought of that song and he was like I used to live that song.I have had that song on itunes for like a year or so. I bought it on my old computer so it dosent appear in the purchased play list. I boot up itune and what appears in my purchased songs. Never To Late by Three Days Grace.... and a dollar is missing from my account.WTFs I am freaked out right now. How did this happen.
Am I the only person that thinks this is ridiculous? I mean we are spending $3 and some odd change a map. It is asinine. This isn't even the first time Microsoft has done this to us. First we spent 800 points on four gears of war maps. One of which was really bad. (I hated Garden) Not only that but after a little while people went right back to Gridlock. The only map pack I ever bought that was worth the money would have to be the ones for halo 2. (With the exception of that new one that sucked allot) Why can't they nock down the prices on this stuff a little bit. Haven't they already made enough off of halo with the controllers and such.
This leads into my next problem with the whole Microsoft points ordeal. They use 800 points for $10. I think that confuses allot of people. I did not think I was spending that much money on Doom. I mean what sounds more appealing 800mp or $10. I wouldn't have bought have as much I knew that. I mean a dollar for some jpegs wtf. Allot of this stuff should be free or at least allot cheaper. We pay 50 dollars for the service, 20 for a mic, and 5 on horse armor…
That is what I hate about console gaming. After a while you get sick of the normal content and this shit starts to rear its ugly little head. If this was a pc game halo 3 would already have a plethora of maps, game types, and other stuff released. Not only that but they would far exceed the ones we have to pay for. Imagine some of the awesome infection maps you could play on. And the infected would probably be flood. I just hate how much console gaming constricts the freedom of the mod community. Yes there is forge but you can only play on so many maps with different shotgun locations before you are like wow this is gay. No disrespect toward bungie. I think forge is a great Idea but why couldn't their be a map editor like Far Cry's. That would have been great for halo.
Well I guess that is all for today’s rant. Tell me what you think.
What ever happened to people on xbox live being friendly? Did this ever exist? The only time I remember nice people existing was the halo 3 launch week and when I was twelve. I wish it was still like that. The situation has gotten to the point where it is almost as bad as the cake being a lie. And that was a real son of a bitch. But back on topic. There should be a new rule. If your going to be an ass you don't get talking privileges. I feel that would make the xbox live experience a much better one. I mean if you join a game of Halo or Call of duty all you here is you noob you suck. When your balls drop play this game. Last night when I didn't pay your mom she said that. It is madness. Maybe it wouldn't be as bad if they were more original but I don't know. It would still be pretty bad. What do you guys think about the wholes situation?
