I honestly think the reaction to this is way overblown. Unless you are doing something that would get you banned, why are you worrying about it?
It would be like being upset because the cops arrest people who rob banks. Simple solution: don’t rob banks??
It’s not a brilliant move on Microsoft’s part, admittedly, but it’s easily avoided as long as you follow the rules set forth by the ToS. If you can’t follow rules, that is really not Microsoft’s fault.
I got money from my mother-in-law for Christmas and used it to buy this!
So many feels for this game, I really don’t even know where to start??
It’s funny because way back in the day when I first got an Xbox and Halo, I started the game but it didn’t really get me. I didn’t understand what the fuss was. Then, me being the avid reader that I am, I decided to read the Halo books, starting with Fall of Reach by Eric Nylund. Actually getting to read about how the Spartan program came about, and how John became Master Chief, is what really got me hooked. This is also why I am a Dr. Halsey fangirl btw. XD
Playing the game after reading the book gave me a new perspective and I enjoyed the game so much more.
When I finally booted up Halo CEA the music in the main menu almost brought tears to my eyes. I loved Halo 2, Halo 3, ODST, and Reach, but the first one is still the best one, IMO. I mean, seriously, this game is still amazing after 10 years. I can’t wait to beat it again and then replay it again. <3
According to Raczilla, the Community Manager over at Epic Games all “gun-like” avatar items will be removed from the Xbox Live Avatar Marketplace. This appears to be a global policy change by Microsoft that is to take effect on January 1st, 2012. This change in policy won’t remove any items already purchased in the shop so if you want to get a gun that is both fake and pretend you should get on it.
I don’t really see the need for the removal of all gun-like items from the store, when it would be just as easy to lock it behind an age-gate like they do with mature content in games. What is even stranger to me is that the sudden exclusivity of the items makes me want them just a little bit, even if they are entirely worthless. What do you guys think, is there a need to ban these avatar props or is entirely pointless.
Personally I think it’s silly to ban them. The avatars are just as fictional as the games we play on a system, so why should it matter if they are allowed to have weapons?

I need to take new pictures of this gen’s stuff because I keep buying games. XD
