That's one problem solved

I've just solved the problem of Microsoft charging for playing games online: it's not actually a problem. Allow me to explain...

I'm quite good at most of the games I own; I usually have little trouble beating the computer and/or completing them. I also believe being able to play online is awesome, and find it hard to resist the option if it's present. This is where we hit a snag: past experience has demonstrated that I seem to be crap in comparison to most other players.

And this is why it's a good thing that I won't be able to play GTA IV online after this month: I won't feel compelled to spend countless hours being "pwned", because I won't be able to...

    I’m almost ashamed to tell you what I’m going to compare this with but when we first got cable TV I became addicted to QVC. I was spending far too much time watching it when I didn’t really want to even though I know part of the reason I was addicted was that I was fascinated by the totally inane banter from the presenters. So we decided to withdraw from the contract about five years ago, we’ve since had it installed again but I never watch QVC any more. I’m sure you can’t be as bad at games as me, when I played some recently with my nephews they beat me hands down. The trouble is with the tennis game I was waving my arms about all over the place as if I was playing a real tennis game. I would offer to play some with you but I know how frustrating it can be if you’re at a different a level to your opponent. Also, I’m absolutely no good at all when it comes to any game that requires strategies. Strategy is one of my weak points. I find it very difficult follow anybody else’s strategy too. In TV programmes like Desert Island and the Apprentice if they start talking about peoples strategies I’m totally lost. I think you need a computer-type mind to have strategies. Add that to the fact that I’m not very competitive in games I don’t think I make a very good opponent.
