Mario Kart Love Song (until I come up with something myself ^.~ )

V1:
You be my princess
I'll be your toad
I'll follow behind you
on rainbow road
Protect you from red shells
wherever we go
I promise.

V2:
Noone will touch us
if we pick up a star
If you spin out
you can ride in my car
When we slide together
we generate sparks
in our wheels and our hearts

Chorus:
The finish line
is just around the bend
I'll pause this game
so our love will never end
Let's go again

V3:
The blue shell is coming
so I'll go ahead
If you hang behind
it'll hit me instead
but never look back
cause I'm down but not dead
I'll catch up to you

Bridge:
Don't worry about
Bowser or DK
Eat this glowing mushroom
and they'll all fade away

Chorusx2

to the mushroom cup
and the flower cup
and the star cup
and the reverse cup

walalalalala
walalalalalawaluigiiiiii

So the people suck on XBL, but no one talks about the system itself. We know they can do better, but we haven't said anything until now.



5. Changing Your Gamertag
Microsoft rewards people that get enough complaints about their Gamer tag by letting those people change it for free while everyone else has to pay. So the lesson is, be rude and get free stuff!

4.Reputation
Reputation has no meaning, other than to act as a report card on how well you have done pissing people off. No one but you sees it, it has no effect at all in terms of what a person can or cannot do, there is no punishment for low rep, and you never seem to have less reputation than you initially start with no matter how nasty you are to people. Rep has no point at all.

3. Avatars
They look adorable! You can dress them up but you can't take them out! Most of the (very few) "avatar specified" games like UNO or Hearts don't actually allow you to control the avatar. Overall, they sure do look pretty, too bad you can't really do anything with them. Our characters clothing is free, (for now). Are they going to charge us when they come out with more clothing options? What about buying a cartoon house, or a pet for our avatars? Microsoft has to make up for lost money from people not buying as many gamerpics, so those ideas are not so far fetched.

2.Paying to Play
Unlike other consoles such as the Wii and PS3, Microsoft charges at least $50 a year for us to play games online. That is bad, but unlikely to change, since over 10 million of us are doing so each year, which means over $500 million a year in Microsofts' pockets (not to mention their microtransactions). Yay!

1. Microsoft Point Scam
Items cost uneven amounts so that you always have extra/never have enough, you can never get the balance to 0, buying points in bulk doesn't give you a discount, and the points themselves are purposefully priced strangely so that you never know exactly how much that game you want to buy really costs in terms of real dollars without guessing or doing the math.

Thanks for listening to my little rant. =D
