Xbox Live's 'little b*stards' get rude awakening

Hands up who's been abused on Xbox Live? Keep 'em up if it was by a candy-munching, 12-year-old American sprog - with a Childline-bothering aggressive streak and a mouth filthier than Dita Von Teese's wormery.

"Then you're pissed off in multiplayer when some 12-year-old is kicking your ass," he added. "You think: 'I do this for a living you little bastard.' I'm going to crawl down your basement hatch and I'll find you, you little..."

We suggested to Hank that if these half-grown foes knew who he was, they might not be so confident in the virtual warzone. But his train of thought was unrelenting.

He continued: "'I know where you live you little bastard. Use all the expletives you want; when I show up you're going to have a big bar of soap in your mouth and boot up your ass. You little bastard."

Those types are even more pathetic lol. The interweb tough guys, threatening 12 year olds. "I was in Nam...'72" - *kid starts singing*.

Seriously , hank is every bit as stupid as those kids ...

I'm so sick of CVG. They don't even post news anymore.

At first I thought it would be Microsoft doing something about muting the little shits permanetly but no. It's just some war vet getting angry.

How are the "little bastards" getting a rude awakening exactly?

Stupid article as usual CVG.

I love all the trash talk on LIVE. Funny as hell to me.

I don't understand why some people get so upset about what someone else they have never met and probably never will say to them. GROW UP!

There's nothing wrong with a little trash talking during competitive play. What I take issue with is the racism and homophobia. If you can't trash talk without using some sort of racial slur, there's something wrong with you. If you think a little "racism" is perfectly alright, there's a pretty good chance you've never been on the receiving end.

That's what the reporting tools are for, people. Microsoft patented a tech to censor realtime audio streams. Until they bring that into play and weed out these hate spewing little cowards - it's up to the community itself to take a stand against the perpetuation of racist ideals in online gaming. Make sure if you witness someone spewing hate that you report them. Ignoring racism and homophobia isn't an answer.

How is this NEWS? WTF is wrong with N4G lately? This is not news. Why did this get approved?

On topic. Should MS stop giving people free Headsets? No. Come on, its up to us to just report the kids. Also It's not just the US. I have had my fair share of European kid talk trash.

It's entertainment to me. If things get out of hand somehow I always know how to defuse the situation, get the foul-mouthed kids/adults to calm down, play fair, or conversate normally. To those who are annoyingly playing music loudly over Live, a quick mute always does the trick.

@ darkride66:

Why the bleep do you still have one bubble when you make good comments like that?

ArronC072791d ago

It's precisely because we are gown up that it gets on our nerves and frankly of you're paying to use online services you'd expect Microsoft to take it a little more seriously then they do.

stop getting your butt kicked by kids then.

PantherDST2792d ago

It stops'em in instantly...

milliways2792d ago

Yet if they're actually playing badly, okay so more of an issue in Left 4 Dead, and you can't get people coordinated to have them voted out... the mute button offers no solace in that event.

DeFFeR2791d ago

How would muting that specific child stop you from communicating to the rest of the people?

Do you know how the mute button works? You mute ONLY the little whiny kids, not your headset...

HeroXIV2792d ago

Damn it, for a second I thought MS had developed a technology to auto-mute/ban the little c*nts. :(

God created video games for all to have fun. Those who abuse the holy microphone for scurrilous means shall be doomed to an eternity in hell.

TheObserver2791d ago

I realize video games is like Vahalla. In Vahalla you get to fight all day and then eat then have more epic battles the next. For eternity...

kasasensei2791d ago

A gold subscription for eternity? It is not Valhalla, it is Hell!

kasasensei2792d ago

So many little kids on the charged xboxlive, i wonder where they find all that money?

Jdoki2792d ago

In the pockets of the same parents who buy their screaming brat kids the Mature rated games in the first place!
