If you like being a badass, and a very specific kind of badass at that (an internet, Xbox Live, digital Avatar badass), you might want to drop some virtual dough in the Xbox Live Marketplace today. That's because starting January 1st, 2012 Microsoft will discontinue all sales of "firearm" avatar gear. That means no more guns for the pudgy little digital self that lives on your Xbox.
In all honesty, who the fuck cares? Avatars are hidden away now, tucked behind the first page you see in the latest dashboard update. Why would you bother spending money on a Gears of War lancer for the little guy?
