Xhack: I finally hate Windows Live.

A few weeks ago, someone managed to get access to my Xbox Live gamertag, and charge nearly $130 to my account via Paypal. I might not have noticed except I saw the Paypal emails and knew for damn sure I hadn’t made any paypal payments in the last 7 days.

It took me a little work to find a billing history, but sure enough, my Xbox Live account had mad two big Microsoft-point buys and spent the resulting points on several games… All while I was nowhere near an Xbox.

Thanks to Microsoft’s “live” single-login concept, reporting this issue means my Xbox, Zune and Windows Phone are all kaput…

Force Unleashed / Alone in the Dark

Brace yourselves, you know how dismal it is when I review new games… Well, I downloaded The Force Unleashed and Alone in the Dark demos for the XBox 360 and gave them a whorl. I enjoyed both demos but I’m still going to be tough on both games…
