I knew something very strange was going on as I logged into Xbox.com to check my messages and noticed an onslaught of messages and friend requests. What I didn’t know was that Inside Xbox was featuring my Gamertag Spotlight! If you have the NXE though, you won’t be able to see it so I’ve attached a picture of it thanks to ThisIsTheEnd. I did this particular Q&A way back in 2005 so some of the information is old while other parts of it was updated. For instance, everyone should know my favorite TV show is HEROES now.
I wanted to thank TriXie and the crew behind Inside Xbox for showing me the love. I hope it brings some new eyes to the place and gives people a look at the great community you guys have created. The unfortunate side effect of this I’ve come to realize is that it brings nearly all of the idiots on Xbox LIVE out who somehow think sending random, ignorant messages to people they don’t know is cool.
What’s even more surprising is that the majority of the immaturity was from the US members. My friends from the north in Canada were 99.9% filled with nothing but class. I love Canada!
Wall of Shame
“u r a fag for calling sushi bad”
“HAVE YOU EVER GET A HANDJOB YES OR NO”
“you aint a gangsta you a wanksta punk ass wannabe”
Wall of Fame
“Congrats on Gamer Spotlight. I have been following your blog for about a year. Speaking of Unscripted 360, you have turned that blog into one of the best 360 blogs there is. Excellent work.”
“Saw your profile on Xbox Marketplace thx for your service to this country and Xbox.”
“Thanks for serving.”
“Saw you on Inside Xbox Spotlight. Thanks for all you did in the Marines and all you do for the community.”
“Well at least your a gamer, most people they put in the SPOTLIGHT have like 2k gs.”
You probably wouldn’t believe the amount of nerve some people have at sending stupid messages. There were others that fit the Wall of Shame but the majority of messages were very cool and very Wall of Fame worthy. I appreciate those. I’ll be talking more about the reality of Xbox LIVE on the live show this Saturday so tune in!
Those of you who have the current Blades Dashboard, enjoy it!
