First few transcripts from being in the Xbox Live Gamer Spotlight

So I’m in the Xbox Live Gamer Spotlight this week. I appreciate the intentions, but seriously, lets show one player to everyone (well, in the US) on Xbox LIVE? You think they’d understand their community by now. Anyways, here’s one that came in by text:

Gamer Spotlight is totally “RIGGED”…Why?Because,They don’t put actual gamers up there-They put the StuckUp engineers up there,Instead!Wow…..

And here’s my attempt to transcribe a voice message:

5000 and a little bit of change in experience points, and that makes you the Gamer Spotlight person, huh? Because you can play 1 vs (short pause) out of a 100, a fucking download? Give me a break bro. I’m not impressed.

It’s worth noting that I didn’t submit my name for this, I was actually nominated by someone else. Sorry you didn’t win the prize of nine million random friend requests and messages this week sir! Better luck next time!
