Am I doing it right?

I'm all for weapon skins, as long as loadouts are required to incorporate them.

Honestly, I would like to see some more unique things done with the skins compared to what Halo 4 did though. It looks like Halo 5 has a progression of Halo 4's BR design.. something cool would be having one of the 'skin' model swap it out for a BR more reminiscent of the Halo 2/3 design.

Nice.
Anyone else getting an XB1 between now and the mcc release?

I'm going to get a second one for competitive Halo so that I don't piss the missus off when I take over the lounge.

Also, going to film a Halo thing with Microsoft's PR team tomorrow morning. Have no idea what to expect, except I have a make up artist. (She'll need to be pretty good!)

I shall wear my HaloGAF tshirt with pride.

Wonder what they have planned? Too late in the game for MCC, but I could be mistaken.

People are against weapon skins? I mean I get that some of the designs 343i put forward are atrocious but come on. I feel like if some of you got your way Halo would be the most boring game ever that only appeals to the ultra-competitive scene.

Customisation that doesn't effect gameplay is what we should be going for. It's no different to armour really (but I'm sure there are people against that too haha). Even games like Counter Strike allow you to do this.
Do it like Gears did, where you choose what skin you have the BR start with. and also, not everyone needs to be a special butterfly, CE- 3 didnt have weapon skins and they were fine, they didnt have this extended carrot on a stick game play, 2/3 had ranks and achievement unlocked armor and that was enough for people.
The problem with this is that games have changed a hell of a lot over the last 7-10 years. With new hardware and a new generation of games people expect at least some kind of customisation. It keeps them invested.

If Halo were to completely ignore that I honestly believe it will left in the past.

if barbie dress-up keeps them invested... then they need to play that game.

New OT will probably go up tonight or tomorrow. I'm really busy this week so I wouldn't be able to put it up when we hit exactly 20k.

Still undecided on a title, if anyone's got a suggestion.

Wait... For someone who doesn't think Halo deserves to be relevant why do you want to make the OT? Trolling?

Maybe you should make it. You could even put it on your résumé!

I'll come pack by bags and you can teach me the ropes and I will handle your achievement scripting. Salary 30K/year.

Why you should hire me:
-I'm beautiful
-I'll compliment you no matter what
-I have blue eyes and blonde hair (Aryans FTW?)
-I have an undying love for all things Halo
-You can prank Stinkles and blame it on me
-I'll pick up your lunch every day.
-I'll play test all of the achievements in my spare time.

PM for more info.

In the mean time I'll just continue my normal life:

I can't wait to read your posts after you play the PC port of Halo: CE online, gonna be a good time boys.
I'll live, but I'm sure it'll be better than the 0 hours of CE I currently play online.

Plus, Halo 2 Terminal, Headlong, bomb carrier on Banshees, etc., yo. Not enough time in the day to get my Halo fix with TMCC.

The more I think about it, the more I want the CS:GO style of skins/customization for Halo 5.
