When Jeff is in happy mode, he is totally super awesome. When he is in his downer moods, he can get really, really, really tiresome. Even in his downer moments, he does still make some funny comments here and there.i cant stand Gerstmann for some reason.
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.
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.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.
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.

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