3 ways to prevent a ban from online games

Getting banned or suspended from a game is never fun and sometimes you might be mistakenly banned for no reason that you can see, but sadly some games won’t even talk to you about your misfortune, they are right and you are wrong.  Even if you say you were hacked, they say that this is your problem you should have protected your password.

Am I an Xbox Widow?

Xbox widows are people that complain that their spouses are playing on the Xbox all the time, that they are in second place to the console. You can read on websites that some people are relegated to the bedroom to watch the 14inch portable TV all night, while their partner plays on the Xbox on the 42inch plasma. When playing Xbox you might hear someone saying they have to sign out as their other-half wants to watch Eastenders or Big Brother and it will be divorce if they don’t.
