Hey guys, Sorry I couldn't make either the chat or the netcast. I got into Paris late last night and couldn't stay awake for the show (made it til 2:45am local time). I know you Brits deal with that for every live show, but travel lag sucks!

BTW, Thanks for letting me in to your country, mates. London was awesome! AND I didn't get any of my shit stolen. Thanks for that, too!

You just had to rub that 'nothing got stolen' thing in, didn't you?

 I think the debate about xbox live and its community could go on for ever. It is an interesting topic though, and always sparks off different opinions. 

For instance, I think that to play a game on live, you should have to be the rating on the box. ESRB ratings are on the disc too, so I think if you pop in COD4 and you have a child account you can't play it on live, because you're not old enough to even have the game. It may sound harsh but my original idea was to make live 16+ only. 

I wouldn't have said any of this when I was younger though ...

We could solve some of our online woes if we follow Nintendo's example of an online setup. All we need to do is disable voice chat for everyone and implement an eleventy-nine digit friend code system. Problem solved.

I have my communications set to "Friends only" I don't have to hear kids singing or perverts (except those on my list). I don't know why parents would let their kids play with random strangers. They wouldn't let them talk to random people on the phone or in chat rooms, why should games be any different. Parents need to be better parents.


Great Podcast by the way. I get you through the Zune MP. I wish there were more. Just found you guys a month ago.
