what they really should do with the new avatars

#1 Posted by GoodKn1ght (491 posts) -

make a crazy ass fps, something like team fortress or bf bad company, and use the avatars as characters. i would be a bit more excited about the avatars if they announced this type of game. what do you think?

haha, that would be pretty tight.  I would definitely play that.

They mentioned something about game developers integrating the new avatars in games....so your vision may very well be in our near future. :D

That might be ok but really I rather that Microsoft not even make avatars for the 360.

Wouldn't that just make it more of a blatant rip-off of Nintendo's Wii? I don't know man, I like my 360 fine without an avatar.

I'm with you on that one. I'm not looking forward to Avatars, a little square image is fine enough for me.

There should be definitely some support for friend on friend avatar mutilation.

that actually is not a bad idea, nice thinking

That is way too hard to develop and way to deep for them to program, doing that would mean a whole technical overhaul of the dashboard system, there are more things involved then just slapping a new picture next to a name.

That would be nice, although it would be kind of odd at first.

That would be a pretty sweet game... I'd play that.

Let's just hope it doesn't go in the direction of Rainbow Six Vegas, and let people take photos of themselves, and put them on their Avatar.
There'd be walking man-junk everywhere.
Someone, please think of the children!
Although to be fair, all the innocent children will be on their Wiis.
The 360 gets stuck with the Halo fankids.
So I change my mind. They deserve to be shot by a walking scrotum.

Wow, second life flashback.... *laughs*
