Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse.
is this a joke because i’m not laughing at all
I thought to myself when I saw this, “no. This has to be some one being silly. This has to be something some one fabricated to make microsoft look worse and people just aren’t checking the source.”
AND IT GOT WORSE:
remember when the basic fucking concept of a commodity was that buying something meant it was yours
I want everyone to think long and hard on this information.
This means that you are not buying your games. You are paying 60+ dollars to rent the games from Microsoft, and they can take their game back whenever they feel like it.
You will not own your game. You will not own your console. Essentially, Microsoft is saying “We can disable your games and cut you off from accessing your console whenever we choose to.” Because a ban that locks your XBox Live account means that you will be locked out from all non-game functionality of the system, and by revoking your ‘licenses’ on all your games associated with your account, they can then disable each and every game you own for the system. Leaving you with a five hundred dollar cable receiver. Or, in the case of most users of the console, a five hundred dollar paperweight.
All because you accidentally walked into some online glitch and the rest of the players rage-report you for cheating.
This is unacceptable. Buy any console but an XBox One. Do not support Microsoft’s sudden belief that they own everything despite our purchase of it, and we have to prove we’re worthy of being shared with by paying exorbitant fees and jumping through constant hoops and hoping someone doesn’t report us for cheating because we made them mad in an online game.
Tell Microsoft ‘No,’ and do not give them your hard-earned money for what amounts to a video game subscription service with a $500 starting fee and $60+ dollar purchases.
There are way too many people that get banned unfairly. This is bullshit. I let my nephew play on my live account once when he was little, and I got a lot of people reporting me just because he was playing like a five year old. So. Cool.

Everything I have I owe to this job. This stupid, wonderful, boring, amazing job.

FF is SO GREAT and any of you who are into found family narratives should absolutely be reading it. You don’t really have to know anything about Fantastic Four or past incarnations of FF to get into it—this is the first time I’ve read any type of F4/FF comic and it’s become one of my favorites even without that foundation knowledge.
There’s a lot to love about the characters, but the affection they have for each other and how it evolves and expands breaks your heart in the best possible way. They’re all struggling with different things and the adults, in particular, are in an entirely new situation, but trying their hardest to hold up the (real or perceived) ideals of the Fantastic Four in their absence and to do right by the kids in their care.
In addition to that, there’s at least one place in each issue where I literally laugh out loud. The characters are great, including three leads who are ladies, and different types of ladies that start off as archetypes and become fully fleshed out characters. There’s a subplot that deals really well with trans issues (I posted bits of that last month) and…basically everything is just great. Including the really amazingly spectacular art. The colors in this book, guys.
It’s only seven issues so far! Lots of time to catch up. THERE IS A POOL PARTY ISSUE COMING UP IN JUNE. Look at that cover! Have you ever wanted anything more? I want a poster of it, guys, it’s that amazing.
So yes. Read this. Especially if you like to read the types of stories I tend to write, I think you’ll enjoy it. Remember when I told you to read X-Treme X-Men (RIP) and you all thought it was great? This is my new X-Treme X-Men. You’ll love this too, but for different reasons.
The cause of racism is often fear of the unknown - lack of knowledge about other cultures. Travel, explore and learn - open your mind.
This is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen
