Thoughts on 1 vs 100 Live
So if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have noticed that I wouldn't shut up about 1 vs 100 for a while. I've tried to cut down on the tweets, but I needed to get my thoughts out about this game somewhere, so here I am posting more than 140 characters.

Brief introduction: 1 vs 100 Live is a video game adaptation of the short lived (at least in the US) trivia game show, 1 vs 100. It's the first "show" on Xbox Live Primetime and is a massively multiplayer online game show for Xbox Live gold members.

While it's based on the 1 vs 100 concept, there are some tweaks. There are a few live shows each week, in which there's an actual host in a studio in Seattle who has his audio streamed during breaks, and each episode is 2 hours long. Apparently 101 people wasn't "massive" enough, so you can be selected as the One, one of the 100 in the Mob, or play in the crowd, which is everyone else. Some episodes have had over 100,000 people connected at once, which is a very large crowd.

The alternate format which occurs most evenings is the Extended Play in which there's no live host, and there's 37 questions each episode. These scores help you qualify to be selected as the Mob or the One in that week's live episodes. But they're not too relevant to the story here.

The game is in its second beta phase right now. The first one was the Canadian beta in which I managed to play in for the last weekend, and it is now in the US/Canada beta phase which opens it up to the US.

Now a really long story about myself, and being more notable than I'd ever choose to be, even if it's to a small community, and it's probably really boring to the rest of you, but I need to get it out of my headCollapse )

Well, I'm glad I haven't bought this yet
There is no reason an adult should have [Animal Crossing: Wild World City Folk]
But it comes from a well informed source:
The equipment is real expensive and we cannot afford to buy all of the systems and do not have the resources either to examine all of the possibilities.

  • 21:40 Dear BellTV/ExpressVu tech support: Telling me "oh, your PVR may erase everything once or twice a year" isn't building confidence #
  • 21:57 At this point, I'm just working on the right amount of anger to call back in order to get retention pricing, since Rogers isn't an option! #
  • 23:29 @megier Rogers costs even more, is less transparent in billing, I don't like their UI, and I'm not going to switch ISPs to bundle #
