I can't wait to see the claims of plagiarism from Nintendo/Sony even though it was patented in 2004! :)

They were going to do face mapping for the original Perfect Dark, but took it out because of school shootings and such. I hope we'll actually be able to implement it into our games this time around.

Ugh... this is why Rare said they would not support the feature after initially announcing it at E3.

Top Spin 2 could really use the create a head feature!

They can always regulate those incident online. Have you seen dickheads with caps on avatars on this site?
Same thing with Xbox 360.

I would like to do an ass face offline and laugh at it while playing tennis thoug.

Another option is parents should turn them off completely for their children. I believe the 360 has some parental controls.
Commented on 2006-03-05 05:19:23
yup, it does

I had a very witty response to your comment, but alas I thought I should be the good citizen since you are new and not flame you. Lets keep this thread on topic and not engage in mindless banter and bathroom humor. If you find a strong desire to do such IGN, Gamespot, and GAF will welcome you.

Welcome to Xboxyde.

No no. The parental feature to LOCK OUT this sort of content for under-18 users. i.e. They cannot see ANY stuff on the camera, good or bad.

And yes, teens are very much capable of such stupidity although I find college kids to be even worse for such things.

Anyhow, now that I think about it, it is best NO children use the camera for online pics or video. Why? There are a ton of freaks out there, last thing you want is some sicko preying on kids and using the 360 video chat to hunt them down.

I had no interest in the webcam until now. I dont even have a webcam for my computer cuz i have no use for it. This webcam for the 360 has grabbed my attention tho.

LMFAO. Nice.

Would be very cool if this worked ingame aswell, so you can see eachother when playing.. And if they restrict the use of the webcam to people on your friendslist only, I think that will limit abuse a lot..

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (3 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (4 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (5 Hours ago)
