Turning The Game Into Something Lame!

So a dumb idea has arisen out there, I know dumb ideas aren't rare. This one is still in rumor status though, but still you just know there is some nut out there hoping to give it a go. The Face it Facts are they want to make games on discs only work at one bar. Hell! I can't even say that. They really want to make their wallets fat and make it only play on one machine at your scene.

Which means if you have two consoles those greed hungry trolls won't let you take the game and play it on the second one. You can only use it on the first for your fun. This may seem okay at first to some. But let's say you are sitting on your bum playing Game A and another wants to play Game B. They are SOL because it was already played by thee. You won't even be able to take the damn thing to a friends place and use it without paying a fee or some other disgrace.

So not only do you have to buy the thing but you also have to pay to play it at another wing. That is the stupidest thing I've heard in a while and to some it may not sound vile. But they are doing this because they are whining about the used game market. So just sit right there and park it. For if this takes hold other companies will be sold.

Want to take your DVD
And play it at another sea?
Oopsy you are screwed,
Too bad so sad, who cares if we are rude.

Like those used clothes your way?
Can't have them at your bay.
Unless you pay some extra tax,
To wear them and relax.

Then anything electronic will come,
That gives off a hum.
Hell! You won't even be able to use,
An old smoke detector without paying dues.

Making you more a number,
Like some boring cucumber.
Because with this taking hold.
Letting less be re-sold.

Everything will be assigned a number corresponding to you,
And not another person will be able to use it old or new.
You won't even be able to have a yard sale,
As everything used will fail.

Or they'll have to pay a tax or some due,
On each and every item they bought from you.
Just to get it to work.
All because of some rich prick jerk.

Boo hooing over a dollar lost,
Saying it should cost.
For their billions already,
Aren't enough to keep them steady.

Pffft, a bunch of bull, once more showing how the rich bitch has the pull. I know I exaggerated a bit. But all it takes is for this stupid ass idea, or one like it, to go from rumor to hit and poof! Everything will suffer the same goof. Such a load of crap that deserves to take a dirt nap. Also it's deserving of any and all sass and can get strat all over by my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  1. Well Pat they're nothing but a bunch of bastards aren't they? And I'm guessing the people that made this decision were men. Men in suit, men in coats, men in hats, why they're all such little rats, but the cat can catch them if he can and then they'll all be damned.

    1. Yeah the people that made the decisions was the big M$ and prob that idiot Gates
      Robbing from everyones plates
      But hopefully it does not come to pass
      Although I'm sure since the idea has leaked to the mass
      They are testing to see what the response will be
      And then just give it a go with glee

  12. Legit? No way! Not that I'm much of a "gamer", but that's totally unfair! What about stuff like the wii-fit? You can get one yoga lesson and then you have to pay another fee? That's so silly. It won't pass. It can't pass.

    Sigh...People really do just try to squeeze as much $$ out of something as they can. Why don't they put their effort into something useful? Like adopting an abused dog or finding a cure to cancer!!! (Which I secretly believe they can cure already, but that's a whole other rant!)

    1. It's microsoft, of course, that is spouting the idea around first
      But all the other companies with the money thirst
      Will jump on the bandwagon too
      And yeah I wouldn't put it past paying another fee for a second to come do

      Because such an effort is a poor burdoen on the poor greedy nut
      They'd rather have that stick up their butt
      And try to make more money than they can spend if fifty live times
      Commiting all sorts of crimes
      Oh yeah I agree
      They have the cure in some hidden sea
      But will they ever let that out
      Not a chance unless something really bad comes about
      They need a way to justify war
      So if another big one ever comes ashore
      Oh look because of it when did this and that
      And found the cure for cancer well our wallets got fat
      Right now they'd lose money over and over again
      So they don't want to cure the men and women
      They want to make them spend $100,000's of bucks
      The dirty greed ridden umm ducks
      So they keep it locked away
      Until that faithful day
      Plus it's their version of population control too
      Which is a whole other rant and look at this one that was caused by you....LOL

      Delete
    2. LMAO aww the cat had a rant! I agree with all of it too! That's one of the major reasons I want to get the hell out of such a populated area. Too many chances for diseases that the gov't refuses to cure. Then how about "terrorist" attacks. High risk for those too!

      Did you see a statement that the US released for giving prisoners in South America STDs on purpose? The US gov't wanted to see the effects of ganorhea on a person. Sickening!!!!!!!!!! Makes me think all these awful diseases came up as "population control" in the first place.

      Stop it, you're making me paranoid again!!!

      Delete
    3. Yeah all it takes is one person and in such a populated area you're toast
      The diseases will surely make you roast
      They would rather have their pop control and make money of the disease
      Like that swine flu crap they tried to pump people full of garbage with ease
      The terrorist attacks aren't as high though
      Because a lot of that is just for show
      They need a reason to get people mad
      So they will accept those guys are bad
      And let them start a war
      On some shore
      Although there are some just plain nuts
      Who stick dynamite up their butts..lol

      Yeah many prob have indeed
      For a lot years ago people didn't have to take heed
      But then many show up now
      Thanks to tech just so the idiots can say wow
      And see what is done
      To each and every one

      You want to be paranoid for real
      How about this deal
      They have the ability to put stuff into creams and shampoo and all that stuff
      That when you use enough
      You become sterile and there you go
      No more babies and pop control does show
      What does your paranoia think of that?

      If you have an ozone one
      Smash it a ton

      •Produces ozone, a lung irritant associated with serious health problems

      They don't kill people, least that I know
      They make them really sick though at their show
      Stupid one I used gave me a headache
      And made the cat's gut shake
      Throwing up each day
      I chucked that thing far far away
      And with enough doses of whatever that ozone crap is
      They have killed small animals with their nasty biz
      A lot of it is placebo too
      For many clean the air as much as flushing the loo
      Oh don't worry I smashed the thing to bits
      It's now long buried in some garbage pits

    8. I'm now experiencing a pounding headache and shortness of breathe.

      I shut it off. Sigh...

      I asked our mail guy about it and he said that it doesn't make sense. It's just sucking air in an and blowing air out. Either way, Google doesn't lie!!

      Delete
    9. LOL sorry for that
      But you are prob better off at your work mat
      Then again NY air isn't great anyway
      So either way you're screwed with the air at your bay..haha
      Many have something in them that give of ozone as a byproduct or something like that
      And there are 100's of sites and reviews that show it, so I'm not just a crying wolf cat..haha

  29. I agree here, Itunes used to do something similar to this with downloads, it was a joke, you were only allowed something like 5 burns to disc, and it would only work with one account- I think they ditched it though, haven't seen it happening recently. But, the screenwriting program I use allows you to install it on 3 machines and that's it, but you can stop the usage on one, say you're getting rid of a laptop, and as long as you decertified that computer, you could use that license again. The prices are so high on video games I rarely buy them anymore, but if something like this happens I would go out and buy an old pong system before I gave into one and only one.

    you know, this reminds me of when I worked in the music industry, I'd have tons of promo discs to give out, but on the top of every disc it would say property of (the name of the company) and could be recalled at any time. I kind of laughed at it at the time, but met up with a rep from another label way back then and mentioned this and he said they ask for them back all the time- I was dumbfounded, anyhow… thanks.

      That I add to the pile
      At least you can use it on three machines and change
      That isn't so bad at your range

  31. I am not into games or stuff...but I can appreciate your frustration

    Business is so tough and competitive, taxes are so high, and we consumers get the short stick of our purchasing power.

    I wish spring to come sooner but alas, we are expecting a heavy snowfall tonight. If it snows a lot, my drive will be a long one ~

    Take care Pat and thanks for the visit in my blogs ~

    1. I hope the snow does not flow
      As that stuff just has to go go go
      Yeah everything is just crazy
      Those companies are just lazy
      Trying to turn a quick buck
      Being an underhanded ummm duck
      Hopefully spring will be sprung
      And no more snow will be flung

  32. It was a lively day here at your bay Pat. The comments flew all 'round you and all seem to agree that these corporate buggers need to be smothered, but not with glee.

  38. Everything is programmed to fail. Reminds me of when i wanted to sign up to Itunes, they wanted to keep my credit card details online forever, regardless of if i used them or not. Ebay is a rip off, organised business is worse than organised crime. I read somewhere that the shy business of the mafia offers better rates than banks lol. Great poem the taxing yard sales is coming i fear.

    1. Yeah they can't make it work forever
      Then no one would buy their new endeavor
      So has to fail over and over
      So they'll fetch a new one like rover
      LOL those rates doesn't surprise me much
      As banks have gone overboard a touch
      And yeah trying to store my credit card has come up a time or two
      But that did not come due
