I need to use this next time some asks me why I don’t speak Arabic. Its interesting that Hindi is on there, but not Farsi or Urdu. I think they’d also be difficult to learn because they use an alphabet similar to Arabic but not identical to it.

If you missed the new XBox reveal, allow me to summarize:
- It’s called the XBox One, meaning it will forever confuse the five people who are trying to talk about the original XBox
- It’s actually a cable box that allows you to play music and watch TV and Skype your friends, which you’ll be doing a lot of because the XBox One doesn’t actually have games
- POLYGONS. XBOX HAS ALL THE POLYGONS.
- There’s a Kinect. Also SmartGlass. Did you forget about those? Microsoft forgot about them and apparently that means they were insanely popular
- Call of Duty has DOGE
- Remedy has a new live-action video out now, and a CG movie about a ship crashing into a bridge. It’s told entirely in bullet time
- We finally get the conclusion to the emotionally weighty Forza series with Forza 5, which seeks to follow up on the chilling cliffhanger set forth by Horizon
- Halo 5? Haha fuck you here’s a Spielberg live action series
- CONFIRMED: Revolutionary “slide” and “hop over wall” and “lean” techniques added to Call of Duty. Fans rejoice. Pope resigns, claiming God has finally descended to be among mortal man. Cats all learn to use the litterbox, and all breakfast cereal is now free globally. Your parents have now accepted your decision to take a career in art. Everyone is hugging. There is no more pain. No more. It’s all up from here
- XBox One: Released “I don’t know, when’s the PS4 coming out? Yeah, around then, that sounds good”
