The long awaited Halo 3
will offer the option of shutting up annoying American teenagers who won't stop with the trash-talk.
Frank O'Connor from Bungie
elaborates in the studio's weekly update on its website:
'The "A-Hole Button" in Halo 3 lets you exact instant, silent vengeance? 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.'
O'Conner doesn't seem too impressed with some of the trash-talkers on Xbox Live. He adds:
'?we can't be parents to some of these poltroons. We're much more concerned with giving you guys the tools you need to silence them.'
Also included in the updated are some words from the enthused Jen Taylor, the voice behind Cortana:
"There's a lot more drama and a lot less technical jargon this time around. I actually just finished a couple of lines that nearly had me in tears. For an actor, more drama is always good."
