Re: XBOX Live

Yes, but I rarely use it. The entire population of Xbox Live seems to be made of up twelve year old Americans who scream constantly in annoying voices about how you're cheating, then start raving about how drunk/high they are at the moment.
It's a great idea and fun for periods of time if you can find decent people to play with, but god it gets annoying...

Re: XBOX Live

They have probably played GTAIII and Vice City as well that their parents bought for them, who are now complaining about the violence in it, totally missing the point that both games are 18 (or adult) rated.

Oooh don't get me started on this!

The amount of parents that I have sold this too only for them to hand it straight over to their kids is unreal. One woman laughed and asked what the big deal was over Vice City - I explained that to get extra points her ten year old son could pick up hookers, conduct "business", then kill them and get his money back. Needless to say she STILL bought it him.

Re: XBOX Live

It seems as though you and me think alike on this!

I'm all for scoring extra points in this way, and it is handy to build up your health as well.

You should have asked her whether she would buy an 18 rated film for her ten year old son, then point out the 18 certificate on the box...

Re: XBOX Live

I do point out thats it an 18. They just smile and say "Yeah, he's played at his mates, its ok".
Then they blame us when their kids go on mass murder rampages.
