X marks the box

Perhaps the most exasperating aspect of this week’s Xbox One reveal:

People are bitching about needing to be online to activate their games. How are they bitching? By going on the internet and typing up storms.

YOU ARE GOING ON THE INTERNET TO BITCH ABOUT HAVING TO BE CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET. DO YOU NOT SEE THE IRONY HERE?!

Irony has worn a mask since long before Alanis Morissette.

    Yeah, but imagine having to be connected to the Internet before having a conversation with someone sitting in your living room with you.

    Just because many young people seem to follow that paradigm willingly, doesn’t make it a good idea to make it mandatory.
