    Best new addition so far.

    There is also a interview with content manager Frank O'Connor at Eurogamer, but I'll just supply a link and let you go there yourself:

    That's fucking brilliant. They should patch the previous Halo games--no, every FPS to include this. It should also notify people when someone is muting them, so they can know what an obnoxious idiot they are when a bunch of players start silencing them.

    that's crazy that Halo didn't have thet feature. I know SOCOM has has a similar feature for a while.

    We need that for the boards too. (yeah, I know we have the ignore user thing, but then the joke wouldn't be funny now would it?)

    It's about time. 2005's had the ignore user button for years.

    See? I managed to make the same joke, only mine made sense!

    So it took them 3 iterations to add a feature that's in almost any online FPS game?
    GG!
