Today, something strange happened. I turned on the tv to watch another emotionally charged episode of Emmerdale and a xbone advert was on. "why the fuck is audio from Rocky 6 playing?" I thought to myself.

The video touts"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

As if this is applicable to the Xbox....

My friends, given how Microsoft deliberately attempted to kill pc gaming, along with practically all major gaming media wholly ignoring and declaring the platform "dead" time after time.

Can we agree this quote is actually, applicable to the pc, not the xbox? And that Microsoft, are the ones who have been doing the hitting while PC is a survivor with a heart on fire? And that it ain't over until it's over?

Lol Xbox. Make sure every commercial has as many explosions and guns present. Those lems sure love their buzz cut brutes in camoflauge with a nice juicy explosion in the background. They do anything to get their hands on a new fix haha.

I don't think there was a single character that visibly had a buzz cut in that trailer

Or it's a commercial where Microsoft is acknowledging "it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

Apparently, they love hats, and not buzz cuts. I counted several hats in that trailer. In fact, there was not a single character in the trailer without a hat aside from the Sunset Overdrive douche.

In Rocky 4 the montage contrasts Ivan Drago against Rocky Balboa. While Ivan Drago is a souless husk, a machine, a product using industrial means to elevate him as an athlete, Rocky trains in natures raw surroundings, we see the will of the individual, the heart. Ultimately this is the story of console gaming and pc gaming.

Weak commercial.

About your question TC, MS has to sell their consoles, which are expensive to produce. In contrast to "PC", where MS needs to sell their OS only.

#23 Posted by EJ902 (14398 posts) -

I always wondered why MS never released the Halo games beyond 1 and 2 on PC (or made them available on Steam). I realise it is probably one of the only identifiable xbox-exclusive franchises and making it multiplatform probably wouldn't help them.

"Excuse me? Are you being sarcastic? What do you think I was talking about? I'm talking about your ignorance. You don't know I'm a fanboy and have no proof. So there".

I for one can't take my conversations with you seriously because of your cute little doggy avatar. But please, feel free to expose me as the stupid little fanboy twat that I am. So far all you have done is gone out of your way to insult and ridicule me. I never said a thing to you before hand. You need to get the chip off your shoulder.

I've noticed how you think people are alts all the time lol. Master shake? Who the fuck is that? Just like you insist that Jankarcop is an alt. You really don't have a clue do you? You keep talking about contributing to a forum. How do you contribute more so than me? And how do I act like a fanboy twat? Sure, I mess about and preach SDC for the fun of it. But there is no underlying motive. I owned a 360 and PC last gen. And I actually prefer PC as a platform. So you couldn't be more wrong about me. I like PlayStation games the best tho. What's wrong with that? Read my post history. I'm not even a troll.

True, but I'd rather have an argument over something interesting than wether i'm a troll or not. I'm not even allowed to joke on here or people think I'm a troll. Must be the way I word some things I guess.

"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it."

They were most likely referring to their fans and how they get made fun of everywhere they go. Basically, stay strong and keep buying our shit even if it's not as good as Sony's shit.

Lems need that positive reinforcement now more than ever.
