    Re: The Xbone

    There are very, very, very few companies with the resources to penetrate the console market in 2013. Apple is the only one that comes to mind and they don't give a shit about games. It's like...

    It wouldn't annoy me so much if Steam would do the sensible thing and omit it from the title of the games in your library. It's fucking obnoxious.

    Best E3 in 10 years? I think so. Putting aside the Xbone (not a pejorative) controversy, there's a ton of stuff to be excited about. Even stuff that doesn't personally interest me, I can recognize...
