Some comments more relevant than others, but I thought it was worth posting them all in case some people of you find them interesting.


ORIGINAL STORY:
Frankie has made three important posts today, click on them below to have a read. Frankie goes by the name of "OuterWorldVoice" on NeoGaf.

It's always nice to have our nerves soothed like this, and it's amazing that the Halo head honcho is willing and able to engage with fans on a videogame forum in this way, so far as I know there isn't another big developer that has this sort of interaction with fans. He's evasive, of course, and obviously can't tell us everything, but his willingness to come and fight the occasional fire is very welcome. 

Thanks Frankie! :D

  1. I'm still upset over the lack of elites in multiplayer.

  2. I still don't understand why Frankie considers the Neogaf community more approachable than the official waypoint community. Yes there are some neolithic retards in the forums , but there are also some very sensible guys who would appreciate Frankie responding to their queries rather than being some sort of God and responding to the folks in some mysterious manners.

    1. have you not seen how the community has been acting since the initial disclosures at GDC?

      Neogaf just has a much more mature community.

    2. When a forum is run by retards it attracts retards. I can count the number of intelligent posts I have read there on one hand. Anyone intelligent has either given up or been banned.
