Time Enough at Last

Today, I did some spring cleaning. While going through boxes, I came across all my N64 cartridges. I had a look through them, and had the urge to play several. Then I thought to myself… if they were making systems “always-online” back in those days, would the servers still be online for me to play these games today, over 15 years later? Not a chance.

I’m really going to miss the days of video game ownership.

    So if the Internet goes out suicide is perfectly reasonable.

    With all the plans for the Xbone announced, I am convinced Microsoft is losing the goddman minds and giving a big fuck you to a significant portion of their playerbase.

      It’s a good thing they took it all back ;)

    The apocalypse in this case will be as simple as hackers launching massive DDoS attacks against Microsoft’s servers.

    While yes, they did some .. minute backpeddling on their policies it still doesn’t stop them from charging you extra while they spy on you with kinectic which is still required to have on and an active internet connection while you watch movies. So they can charge you extra for everyone in the room. .. spying.. on .. you..

    Well, it ain’t the end of the world. Umm, ok, maybe it is…

      He might just have to dust off that Wii.

    On the upside, he’ll have enough time to learn how to make the perfect robot companion!

      Let’s just hope he doesn’t put an Xbox in it.
