so... the Master Chief Collection, plus a brand new Doom on the horizon. Congrats, M$, the latter alone would've been enough to sell me an Xbone, but the former (with remastered Halo 2 anniversary goodness) is the glorious icing on the cake. hell yes.

if they do a MCC bundle, that's probably what I'll be picking up this November. what I'm wondering, though, is whether or not I'm gonna hafta re-earn all this stuff again for my custom armor in Halo 4 whether there's some way to transfer all of that over. It's not like having to look like the default is gonna stop me from playing it through again, but i know part of me is gonna be all 'oh come onnnnnnnn, i just unlocked that', haha, so now i'm wondering if i should hold off on starting 4 after i've finished 3.

@GuardianKing, @Rosalina: Your avatars in particular have been reported by other users as inappropriate. We're asking that you change them to something else. The updated version of yours, Rosalina (the one just showing the person down to their armpit) is okay, but the one currently shown as your avatar goes all the way down to the hips still. GuardianKing, the excessive cleavage on what looks very much like a minor character is too much. Please remember that NL is a family-friendly site when choosing avatars.

and since it's come up, the 'family friendly' thing comes from the very first line in our Community Rules: This website is intended for users of all ages. If there are any more questions, please feel free to ask. :3

Alex, if you don't want to be here, don't be here. You've been around long enough to know how this all goes.

Same goes for the rest of you. The insults and infighting need to end now. If you can't discuss things civilly and want to just tear into each other, do it at another site. Quit with the accusations of trolling and ignore someone if they bother you, report their comments if they're rulebreaking.

@Rosalina: haha, that's not what i mean at all — the best possible thing you can do when something like this happens is to ignore the spammer or troll, just report their posts and go on with your discussion in the threads with actual topics (of course, a thread like this it's not really possible to go off-topic, so it's fine to discuss it here). That way, when we come through and delete all the offending troll posts or spam posts, the discussion just goes on like nothing has happened at all instead of leaving 'mods ban this guy' over and over in a thread with no guy to ban anymore, thus confusing anyone else coming in after you to continue the actual discussion and potentially derailing the thread afterthefact. Does that make sense? :3

Just checked his profile and says he's banned...are the mods back finally?

idk, sometimes it feels like when (on the rare occasion) we have someone get past our defenses and start causing trouble and no one's around to fix it immediately, people start flipping out and acting like the forums have been abandoned by the moderation team, and i promise you we haven't done so at all. it's very irritating to have to take care of a slew of 'omg mods ban this guy already wtf' off-topic posts along with all of the actual spam.

For pete's sake, it was just an observation by a reviewer, and it's not like they're wrong — the humans and humanoids in the Mario series games are all overwhelmingly pale-skinned. The way some of you are reacting to their statement of fact, they must have stomped on a puppy when they said it.

i saw the news earlier and I must say I'm liking the idea of a cheaper, Kinect-less version of the Xbone without the subscription requirement for apps like Netflix/Hulu/etc., but my main interest in an Xbox at all is that I've never actually played any of the Halo series games before. I'd very much like to get into them now that I'm into Red vs. Blue (yeah i know it has like next to nothing to do with the Halo storyline but I still want to play it now), but from what I've been able to find online (and please do correct me if I'm wrong here), there's no way to play anything prior to Spartan Assault on the Xbone? I don't want to invest in a 360, though, since it's kinda no longer a current-gen system. Give me backwards compatibility, Microsoft, and you've got yourself a buyer.
