I think it's pretty decent so far. Works as expected. Took a little while to get used to it all, but I got the hang of it pretty quickly.

My brother bought some games as well, and I got three games free with gold, so there already are quite a few. Two Asassin's creed game, Minecraft, Need for Speed, NHL, Halo one through four, Some golf game, some pool game and some other game I have no idea about what it is.

We'll see where it goes. I hear there is supposed to be a big summer sale in a few days.

Speaking of which - it has been horribly hot today. I took a short walk to the store and surely lost two litres of fluid Rolling Eyes

I plan on getting an Xbox One around December, only really because I want Fallout 4 and I figure I need to go ahead and get the new console. Which Assassin's Creed games?

Unity I bought with the console, Black flag was free with gold this month. Considering that I'd gotten it on the two week trial that came in the box, I'm not displeased. It's always nice striking a bargain.

Fallout? I've never played any of them, though I'm vaguely familiar with the story and concept. Any particular reason you'd want an Xbox over a PS4? Not that it is obvious such a decision should be made so far in advance; the software situation can probably change before then (with Windows 10 and all, and Sony probably have something up their sleeves as well).

On an entirely different note I suppose I should offer congratulations on the American national day. Quite modest, but still better than Peugeots insults and mockery. lol

What no love for the Philippines's Republic Day? ( I find it sad that the U.S always overshadows the Philippines and even Canada Day)(Also being an anglophile myself and one who is not prone t let nationalism/patriotism beat out reason, I may actually accept some of Peugeot"s insults)

I choose Xbox because:
A: I'm used to the system
and
B: I feel like Fallout will come out on it first.

On another different note, has TnP(presumably SAOL) ever heard of XKCD comics, I have been going through it this weekend and I love it.

Ha, happy treason day, in that case lol

Seriously though: While I don't know the figures my somewhat educated guess is that a majority of the US population are descended from people who immigrated after 1783 (or are first generation immigrants). While the entire concept of a national day for a country such as the USA might be questionable in itself, it seems silly to deny all of those people a fair chance to celebrate it, by issuing accusations of treason. Indeed, even those who are descendants of 'traitors' can't be accused of being that themselves.

That being said, the attitude many citizens of the United States of America purvey to the rest of the world on special occasions such as the 4th of July certainly invites mockery coffee

Fair enough, I suppose. Quite frankly I find it silly, the extent and level of conflict people seriously get stuck in over things like PS4 vs Xbox One. I don't mind some witty clever comments and jabs, but my god - people go really crazy.

Of course I have. I've seen and read a bunch. I don't actively read it though.

Your mentioning of it did make me think of some text by some self-proclaimed journalist (read: mediocre and generally clueless blogger whose position on a 'big' publication has put his head in the clouds), in which he was going off on a long rant about the awesomenezz of the Internet and how dictionaries and science couldn't possibly keep up with all the trendy new Internet-words such as "meme".

You don't really know if you should laugh or cry, eh? Rolling Eyes

I agree on that people do get worked up over such minor issues, I just have my preferences and I see no reason to attack people with contrary views.

Webster's is certainly trying to stay as "in-the-know" as possible aren't they?

Oh and I'm beginning to like the new background, especially since I have done more research on Persia now and hence like the desert theme.

And they say MS is completely void of humour...


So, how's it been treating people? Any troubles? Any wonders? Any woes? Any tin-foil hats?

After all, it is a pretty big event.

What event, Labor Day?
I'm doing well overall and I am getting excited for what appears to be WoL's upcoming release as well as NE's

Oh and it's been a while since you have been on the forum, how is it going?

No lol Labour day is the 1st of May in Sweden (and pretty much the rest of the world) anyway.
See countries in blue Spoiler:



I meant Windows 10, the mascot of which seems to be that odd GIF.

Well, now it's going fine. As I mentioned in the shoutbox I'd rather not discuss the reason for my absence. Now I'm back in business as usual though Devil

I find it odd how America is always the odd man out on those sort of maps.

And it is good to hear you are well, also I don't love Windows 10 all that much, feels the same as 8 but with shiny new icons and the new pseudo-Siri known as Cortana.

Yeah, I know. Like on this one. Guess what it is?

I think it feels a bit different. Better in some ways, worse in others. It seems that's almost the definition of progress Rolling Eyes

There isn't a Swedish version of Cortana (as of yet), so I've not had a chance to try it. I'm not sure I'm too fond of that entire concept though; neither on a phone or a computer. Though it seems sensible to use the same one everywhere, if you were to use one.

Goodness me, only the US and Burma ( Yes Burma, I'm sticking with it ) are not colored on that map so I have no idea what we and the Bumese have in common on this map.

Since I never really loved Windows 8 in the first place, I figured I would not love Windows 10, so I suppose it is just a matter of if you liked the new layout...

It's not just you and Burma.
