Bungie is working hard to fix the formula that is: Teenager + Anonymity + Live + Microphone = Idiot. Now they have come up with an instant "A-Hole" button for Halo 3 here's how it works...
The “A-Hole Button” in Halo 3 lets you exact instant, silent vengeance. These kind of vocal buttmunches, as it turns out, are exactly as fun to play against as normal people, as long as you can’t hear them. So now, you simply press a button (back button, for the moment anyway) and up comes the score list with everyone’s tag on it. The right stick lets you highlight the miscreant and you can then instantly mute them for the rest of the game. These morons continue smacktalking anyway because they can’t help themselves, but if you don’t have to listen to it, you can simply enjoy killing them over and over again, knowing that as their Ritalin wears off and their frustration builds, it’s less and less fun for them. Aaaah. So satisfying.
This should make every game a lot more pleasant, along with Xbox 360 Player Review System, you shouldn't ever have to play or listen to an A-Hole again, well after you play 'em once that is.
