That dialogue seems like it was written by the Meet N' F*** guy.

..... Not that I'd have any idea.

Haha, yeah. The writing is just nasty.

Make sure to create a change.org petition, that'll help tremendously. In fact, I think Rockstar would see it and then immediately start work on another Bully game. Such is the power of internet petitions.

Those guys have pretty amazing programming skills. One of them called it a "triple total control".

For those not watching, they ran the Twitch chat through Pokemon Red, running on Super Game Boy running on a Super Nintendo.

I'm sure there will be discounts on the older expansions and possibly a GOTY bundle of some sort.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Seems like a somewhat safe bet.

I'm just gonna give a shout out to YouTube user xpantherx who has painstakingly cut together the greatest parts from a lot of Quick Looks (and occasionally streams or other nonsense). They're excellent for new users who want to catch up on older material but might not have the time to watch the full length videos.

The playlist is here. Seriously, worth checking out.

Remember that long series of 2d sequences they went through in the QL to get across that gap, right before they woke up that snake guy? Knuckles can easily glitch his way past that ENTIRE section.

For a moment I thought Ulillillia was playing. Anyway, yeah that's pretty bad and certainly allows the player to easily break the game.

@vastaux: That's certainly one way of looking at it. However, I will say that the deadline was December 19th, and I would say that on December 19th, I experienced significant issues in an attempt to play the game. If you can't fit a third of the game on the disc and require a ungodly large patch to the point where I'm not even able to play it by the deadline passing, I'd say that counts. The attempt was made to play the game on December 19th, and the game's poor state would not allow me to.

And for those keeping score, it's 2:44 PM, and after leaving my XBox One on all night while the data loads, the install currently reads at 96%. So that's a solid sixteen hours between inserting the disc and being able to play it. Don't know about you guys, but I'd say that's a pile of garbage.

If I were a Microsoft support person I'd be sympathetic but it's hard to say just how strict they'll be. The installation is not really an issue with Halo: MCC but rather the Xbox One in general (mandatory copying of physical disc content for every game), coupled with a launch day patch for pretty much any big title.

The huge patch is because the game has been a mess from day one... which comes back around to why Microsoft is giving away DLC that they can charge $10-15 for down the line.
