Community Manager, Polygon & The Verge.

Not a jerk. Sometimes, actually 20% of the time I'm a jerk all the time.

I picked up an Xbox One this past weekend. Enjoying it thoroughly though I’m still of the opinion that Sony have their PR game together more than Redmond do.

So many changes are happening at both companies that it’s folly to think that sales won’t stabilise later this year. The real push will come at E3. Microsoft and Sony both need to diversify the I offerings for the fall in my eyes. I’ll pick up a PS4 at some point but only if they can really break out a home run with Uncharted or a new Souls game.

So guys who may have an interest in helping me out with a project.

I’m working on a charity thing. It’s going to involve 24 hours of streaming and a little bit lot of community fun.

If you’re interested in talking some more drop me an email. I’m heading to bed now as I’ve an early appointment to get to but now I’ve got some new mods on The Verge things might slowly improve in the event side.

Oh yeah. CM on both sites and that’s what has me being less commenty, and more bannu.

Alive and moving is good. Very good!

Good thanks bud. True fact – I read this thread often but on a second screen whilst working.

Would be nice to have time to chill with you all.

Good news is that we could be doing all the fun stuff soon.

Rather than tie it into any specific colour or gender – people have a responsibility not to be an asshole, John. It’s not necessarily a binary issue – it’s a human issue.

You’ve often made remarks to insinuate that you found Dark Souls 1 cheap, boring and a waste of time.

I want to love this game. I spent 150 on the silly thing, and it’s so dull, so boring, so simple.

Why spend $150 on a game you clearly don’t like, Chris? We’ve had a number of conversations and it’s clear it isn’t your type of game :( Same way that there are games I can’t play either like FIFA – I avoid them because I derive no enjoyment from them.

I only set up and dabbled a little in Titanfall last night.

It’s okay.

I went with Xbox One (first) this time for a number of reasons.

1) Skype with my parents on TV will be pretty rad.
2) I’d have to get Plus or Gold anyway on either console.
3) I’ve a lot of friends on Xbox I enjoy playing with.
4) I’ll get Halo 5 – let’s not kid ourselves.
5) Snapping TV is nice, I guess. Lets me play games and watch rasslin’
