Don't you have your own version of Emergence Day next week?

I just heard they had a competition on live on the 12th (i think). We wont get that!

I was expecting a bit more on 'Emergence Day'. Gamerpics, a theme, and a video from Cliffy B....big whoop.

How about a cool in game downloadable (an arm band for your character models in multi player, new bandana for Marcus etc) to show that you were part of emergence day, and have been playing since day 1.

Game with fame is crap, as are the released 'freebies'. WIth all the talk about microstransactions it would have been a great forethought to have special outfits or in game content available.

Oh well I guess this next generation is all about nickel and diming the gamer.

DUDE! have you played the game? The game itself is worth it. No nickle and diming here at all. as far as the pics and theme. yeah the theme is cool but don't worry europe microsoft well not forget about you, I'm sure. And yes maybe some extra stuff would have been cool but honestly I am completely satisfy with what this game has to offer right now. I qustioned my 360 purchased for a couple of months but now I am a very happy camper. tnx Cliffy B.! GREAT GAME!
