Looks like leveling your gamertag was successful enough for Valve/Steam that Microsoft is jumping on the bandwagon too. I wonder how long until they add trading cards t
The other key is to absorb all of that hate into one big fireball of motivation inside of your belly and then pour all of that energy into your work until you can unleash one big giant motherfucking HADOKEN upon the community that wins awards and sells millions and then the haters will truly be eating a giant bushel of dicks as you roll in a pile of money, acclaim, and community love.
