Xbox support is completely useless, my console is dead
Like so many other lucky folks, I have the red ring of death. And just in time, I suppose, since the warranty extension ends for me in January. But I have to add my story about interacting with support the way everyone else does, because Microsoft really...
XNA Creators Club sucks too
It's bad enough that I can't use my real name on Xbox Live, but I can't even do it trying to sign up for the XNA Creators Club. And I'm sure there's no human being who would respond to, and act, to fix it. Believe me, I've tried. You'd think my last name...
Valve and Half-Life 2, plus Steam, three years later
It's strange how some posts on this blog get comments even to this day, one of them being a post about how Valve's Steam was a pile of crap that seemed to drag down Half-Life . I remember even later that year, my former wife has many complaints about...

Still no Xbox Live support in XNA
I see while I was on vacation that the XNA Studio Express was released, but still doesn't include any Xbox Live support. Considering that they seem to be fostering a "farm system" of development shops, where product would be distributed...
No Xbox Live networking in XNA
From the XNA FAQ : Q: Does the XNA Framework include the ability to use Xbox Live? A: The initial release of the XNA Framework on the Xbox 360 will not have any support for networking. We realize this is a big area of interest for game developers and...
