So, spent a week in Disney with the EMCC Mighty Lion Band and so on. I'll keep it short and sweet -- long lines, rude people, expensive food, some fireworks at the end that didn't really make any of it feel worth it. My feet still hurt. Buuuut, I was in a parade. Yay? I'll see if I can update later with a video from the parade (I asked a friend to send me the file, but until then, we wait.)
Here, have a grainy picture of me and some other (anonymous but loved) bandos from the fancy dinner we had at the hotel -- which btw didn't even have traditional Thanksgiving fare. I'm on the left.
No, it's not red-eye. We're werewolves -- with those reflective linings in our eyes to help us see at night. Totally... Side note, man, this NG editor can be a bitch when it comes to adding photos... Tip, add them after you've got all your text in, if you haven't figured out already.
Might have to turn your head for this one. Sorry for the shit quality. As you can see, the One is basically presenting itself as a Gears of War Bundle, which it is not. And buyer beware, the 14 day trial is not valid if you've ever had a trial from a previous purchase, and trying to use it will void the card without giving you gold, so no one else gets to use it!
Anyway, onto how I ended stuck with an Xbox One -- or Idiotbox/Xbonehead, as I like to call it, which I paid a hefty $329 at Walmart for. All in one entertainment system my ass. If you're buying this console, make damn sure you know exactly what games will be backwards compatible, and also that you have DIGITAL copies of either the game or the DLC, because it's a POS in that area. If I wanted to pay an extra $60 dollars to buy a digital copy of games I already owned the discs and DLC for, I would have done so before next gen, Microsoft.
Only about 100 Xbox360 games are compatible with the Xbox One, and out of those 100, I had Fallout 3. Keep in mind I have all the DLC for Fallout 3, and the One even pretended to install the nifty DLC disc I had, but upon installing the game, none of it recognized! Some users say you have to buy the game of the year edition or Fallout 4 inorder to enjoy the full version of the original, but that's prohibitively expensive and very backward of Microsoft. Typical of the Xbox, I suppose. If I had known about this, I never would have gotten one in the first place. Thank you, false advertising!
#XboxOneIsAWasteofMoney that I hope they fix some time in the near future. I would revert to the 360 if I had a working HDD. The reason I purchased the console to begin with was because my 360 is on its last legs!
I'll be posting unboxing and review later, once I trim the footage, but this pic pretty much covers my opinion.
