So, the motherload of all Halo titles is coming out. We should have a party and play.

I wanna go through the campaign with you folks and want to hear your favourite moments from the series. Then so ya'll a good time on Valhalla. Blue skies, green grass and roadkills all day long.

My beautiful white Xbox One has an ETA Of Nov 3-7... my copy of MCC is coming from the Microsoft Store (since they gave me $10 credit) and who knows when the hell that will hit.

But that should be right after all my big work projects go away, so I shall be happy :) Definitely going to want to co-op the whole series again.

It regenerates, bro. Think of yourself like a lizard. Except instead of tails, you have bodily fluids.

So, for a 500gb Xbone (sans kinect), and Halo, I'm looking at $577AUD.

Thats $505.47 US

News came out just in time. My Sunset Overdrive bundle was "preparing for shipment" on Amazon, but I was still able to cancel it before it hit the point of no return before shipping.

The downside is that Amazon is sold out of the Overdrive bundles, so I'm just hoping come November 2 I can jump on one via the Microsoft Store or something. The white Xbox will be mine.

As for playtimes, won't know until that week. Got to get through conference season these next few weeks...

Some of us weren't so lucky to cancel in time, even though I tried as soon as I found out

Funny you should say that. No sign we are getting the reduction here. I have found the cheapest I can get it is $478 with AC: Black Flag, AC Unity and Forza Horizon 2. I could even get 10% off if I buy it this weekend.. but I don't have enough cash to buy it outright until I get paid next week...

I just got an e-mail from Amazon.

"Your recent order ENTITLES you to a promotional code that you can apply on your next QUALIFYING order....due to the timing of this promotion, your order wouldn't normally qualify for this order"...blah blah blah

I think Amazon doesn't understand what the word entitle means lol.

At least MCC "qualifies" for the promotional code. With two day shipping, I'm paying less than $20 for MCC. I have slightly less of an urge to bitch slap Microsoft and Amazon.
Praise Bird Jesus!
