Bungie helps out gamer that got screwed over by Microsoft's repair center

Last week, HawtyMcBloggy brought word of Nathaniel's one of a kind Xbox 360 that was adorned with signatures and artwork by industry people. The 360 unfortunately broke down so Nathaniel sent the system in making sure that Microsoft would take proper care of the system so the art and signatures stayed in tact. As we all know, that didn't happen and the 360 was sent back fixed but with all the art and signatures "cleaned" off.

Bungie got word of this and they have sent Nathaniel some of the greatest swag ever. The best of the swag Bungie sent to Nathaniel was easily the Legendary helmet signed by practically the entire Bungie staff and two signed Halo 3 soundtracks by Marty O’Donnel. Nathaniel also received:

  • Bungie Jacket
  • Bungie T-Shirt
  • Halo 3 Messenger Bag
  • Two Halo 3 Limited Edition Wireless Controllers (one covenant, one human)
  • Halo 3 Faceplate and Skins for Xbox 360
  • Four McFarlane Action Figures (MC, EVA Spartan, Brute Chieftan, Jackal Sniper)
  • Halo Actionclix Preview pack (Target exclusive sticker on the front)
  • Halo Actionclix Game Pack 4
  • Halo 3 Wall Graffix
  • Halo 3: Ghosts of Onyx Novel
  • Halo Graphic Novel
  • Halo 3 Wristband
  • Halo 3 Hackeysack

Check out HawtyMcBloggy for more pictures of the swag and a statement from Nathaniel thanking everyone for the help. Hawty also mentions that Microsoft is still trying to figure out what they can do to make it up to Nathaniel. I'm really glad to see some good come out of this whole situation.

This just goes to show how much love Bungie has for their community. Eh, Bungie, they're pretty cool guys ... except when they're trying to make fun of us. Also, Halo 3 Hackeysack! TOTALLY RADICAL!

Could you stop calling Metal Gear Solid V Kojima's "swan song?" He's not retired, for crying out loud.

Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img]http://i.imgur.com/DwOtP0s.jpg?1[/img]

Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.

So the 3DS Dragon Quest VII remake is coming to mobile in Japan, so there's a chance that version will get ported over here. Not ideal but if we get it at all I'll be happy!

Put down the deposit for my new car, will probably be able to pick it up on the weekend. Insurance is pretty good too, sub £1000 which is excellent. Kinda. My mum tried to reverse in 5th gear. She drives an automatic. What a noob. :P

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.
