I just downloaded and installed the new dashboard, and my avatar looks awful now. It's like the old head was copy pasted onto a taller, stretched out body. Dislike.
New Dashboard is out, Avatars look gross
Are there finally more than a whopping five or ten ways you can make your avatar look? Is there finally a way to just DELETE your fucking avatar, so you don't have to participate in that retarded bullshit? Can you finally have a super SKINNY avatar and an OBESE one, instead of being able to choose from the "wide" variety from "normal" to "very slightly pudgy"?
Good apart from 2 things:
1: Now that the boxes are on the same plane you can't see as many of them, makes browsing games and movies even more annoying.
2: When you press Y to bring up Game Details it no longer seems to link to downloads, which makes finding DLC much more of a ball ache. Although it probably just means I'll buy less of it so maybe it's a good thing for my wallet.
The menu's are much better and the options are much more clearly layed out. Huge improvement in terms of design and functionality.
Avatars do look a bit weird at first but you get used to them. I've been in the beta for the past couple of weeks and going to a freinds house and seeing his stubby little avatar is very weird to me now.
Just got the update, I think the avatars look fine. Although, I have to say the whole thing looks a little bit childish. The Xbox logo in the bottom right and the coloured button icons at the bottom just look too basic, also the notification pop-up text change looks weird as well.
Although I have noticed when I look through my achievements, they load much faster which is nice, i think it's OK so far.
They look the same to me.
How is it bitching? They're talking about how they changed and whether or not they like it. Now you're bitching about people posting their opinion on the internet. People will bitch about anything, I swear.

I have no problem with the new avatars, and I love the new dashboard look, but I just wish it actually made some functionality changes. Not even new features, but at least better implementations of some existing stuff. Speed increase would have also been nice... so far doesn't seem to have changed at all.
