 I would like to say Microsoft has lost their minds and are a very unfriendly consumer company now ! Why you ask ? I will tell you why !

1) I chatted live with Xbox Live account support team today about my Xbox Live Family Gold Plan that is no more now. I asked them why did you charge me $99 then ? They told me this would be the last time and we are giving you three month’s free. I was like cool ! Here is where the very bad part starts, when it ends all your accounts on Xbox Live Family Gold turn into single Gold accounts. If you have four accounts on your Xbox Live Family Gold account, I was told each account will be bill $59.99 !!! I was like WTF !!! That equals $239.96 !!!!! They should drop dead thinking they can charge that !!! I canceled auto renew .

PlayStation Plus is $49.99 a year, every one in your house hold can piggy back that account . They all can have a PSN gamer name. What makes PlayStation Plus a greater deal is if you had pre-order bonus’s and DLC every one under the main account gets everything you own too !  HALLELUJAH !!!

2) RYSE: Son of Rome you pay $59.99 for the game . Microsoft has the balls to have micro-transactions for the CO-OP part of the game ! That would be OK if it was a Free to Play game, but you have to buy the game ! Then they want to give you the shaft for being loyal to them ! I say F$%K YOU !

3) XBOX ONE UI/OS runs so bad it is laughable . Micheal Jackson should come back from his grave to JUST BEAT IT ! Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

I could go on, but I know you all get my point ! Save your money and wait before you move to next gen with Micro-shaft. See if they will start giving back and not taking so much to own a XBOX ONE.

Long lost Xbox Soul

PS: Get a PS 4 !

RYSE: Son of Rome Box art When we were shown this title at E3 2013, we honestly thought to ourselves…”What a weak title to launch a console with! NEXT!” — Hell, we even wrote a letter to a Microsoft executive telling him the same thing. Well my friends, there comes a time in every man’s life when he must admit he was wrong. We were wrong about Ryse. We’re positive that most of you thought the exact same thing as we did because the E3 showing of this game was terrible. Turns out they needed to show us more gameplay and less cinematics. Who knew it was simple as that.

Ryse: Son of Rome is probably one of the strongest launch titles for the Xbox One. One, it’s the only first party AAA title that is a unique and untested franchise. Basically a huge gamble for Microsoft. This was a bold move for them, especially with a brand new console. With the folks at Crytek being right there holding their game designing hand every step of the way, it was sink or swim. It also doesn’t hurt that they have an amazing graphics engine either. They’ve really bet on a good horse here. Sort of.

The best way to describe this game is that it’s a mix of Prince of Persia and Batman’s hand to hand combat system, mixed in with a bit of the linear and gameplay feel of Gears of War. All set within a beautiful Roman era historical wrapper. Generally speaking, linear games are not a new phenomenon. But, games like Gears and Splinter Cell are perfect examples of linear single player campaigns titles that work. Basically if you’ve watched Spartacus Blood and Sand series you’ll love Ryse.
