    I need to get my doritos and mountain dew (and a blanket… it’s damn cold in Cape Town this evening). By the way, I really want Microsoft to have a good E3. They definitely need to bring their A-game. Granted, even if they showed off Crackdown 3, there’s still no chance in hell that I’m getting a boner. But I’d like them to wow me.

        It’s 9 degrees at the moment, with an icy combination of wind and rain.

            Yea, Sadly those days are long gone, Japanese developers have clearly lost a step, and it takes a while for their games to cross over Western Gamers, if they feel the investment is worth it. I don’t expect KH3 or Final Fantasy 15 until late 2016 at most…

            Hope, Sony has better luck they’re facing a uphill battle in Japan,with how the Japanese market is dead for console games”due to those smartphones. ):

    In closing, I give this year’s MS E3 conference a C+. It was a huge improvement over last year, and definitely one of the best MS conferences since 2007. I absolutely loved the focus on games! AND they spared us all the usual fluff, like Justin Bieber, Kinect and ESPN.

    First off, everyone in the audience wearing RFID chips and clapping along to the Xbox One Devil.

    Most of the new games has this four player, mulitiplayer, server based gaming. DRM.

    Only one game caught my attention and that had nothing to do with Xbox One.

    So with Microsoft not saying DRM but showing DRM in a lot of the games. I just hope people with no internet will not support Xbox One, oh wait, they can’t.

    Don’t support DRM.

            RFID chips is a reality in this world with plans for mass implementation in the future.
            This type of information can be interpreted from religion and the Bible that you mentioned.

            Second, the Devil is not owned by the Bible nor Christians. So saying that i made a “joke” about the Bible, doesn’t make sense to me. RFID chip, Jesus and the Bible walked into a bar.

            The Bible and other religious books, can be interpreted in so many ways, that no1 can interpret religion 100%, not even science.

            You get those that interpret religion as fact.

            You get those that interpret religion as a way of life.

            You get those that interpret religion as a warning.

            You get those, (this can go on forever).

            Religion is not One thing. Religion is built up on many aspects of life, so much so that we can not even begin to fully understand it.

            I will express what I feel is good or bad, I will not hold back because of your feelings about certain things. This is a gaming website and my comments doesn’t have to be fact but I will still spread the message. Yes, they were not wearing RFID chips but that doesn’t mean I can’t spread the message about RFID chips being bad.

            Don’t forget to not support DRM
