Just preordered Halo 4 via MS Store to get the $25 coupon. Will turn around and use that with Blops 2 to get a $10 coupon and 1600 MS points.

I wish I could do that, but I'm so impatient!! If the MS store did free same day shipping, I'd be all over it.

Very nice. Anyone else getting Blops 2 also? I really would love to get some zombie games in too.

No, just 6. 5, maybe, if you count the midnight launch...

Voc or Coco? Seriously. Whoever runs your marketing department needs someone to go take a massive shit on their desk. I'm talking like, save one in the chamber for a few days and litterally decimate that surface.

Behold.

I spent the first 45 seconds alternately playing and pausing, clicking on the video thinking that I was controlling it.

Now that I work in marketing, I understand why this kind of shit happens. Unfortunately all of these big companies (like MSFT) have partners that they use to cross promote their big releases. As part of that, MSFT probably had to hand over their assets (logos, images, characters, etc) to Mountain Dew/7-11, who probably had some freelance designer or design studio throw this video together. You'd hope that the MSFT Halo/videogames marketing team would get final approval on something like that, but that might not always be the case depending on the relationship. It's probably not even the actual marketing team handling this, but another promotional/relationship marketing team. In any big ad campaign, you'll always have multiple parties involved, which is why you get such uneven components when it comes to quality. So, Nightshade, there's the long answer that you didn't give a shit about.

I actually do give a shit. As in, multiple desks are now required to be shat upon. So, I'd say I give multiple shits rather than none.

Halo 4 seems to be getting universal praise though, even if that reviewer sounded like he was constantly shooting baby batter the whole time he was speaking.

When do we get to find out which missions Cocop designed and which narrative ideas were Voc's?

After you've beaten it and told him which ones you love and which ones you loved less.

Mattacus is correct. He asked me the same question when he and I went out for noodles in Tokyo a few nights ago.

I wasn't going to mention that night without the picture of us and the giant bikini robots, but now that you brought it up, I had a blast. And your coworkers all seemed pretty cool. It gave me great hope that for the taul one, at least, he seemed passionate about game design and his job in particular.

Haha yeah, I will post that picture as soon as he gives it to me. And I should have waited until I had it.

Cocop isn't telling me which was his mission either. I think I'll be able to determine it fairly easy though, I know his style. The game is getting killer reviews and I've seen a lot of videos. I know the gun-play is great because it stood out when I played back at PAX, the thing helping this game most though is that they have a great selection of launch maps.
