Should still have a voice masker, to mask out those annoying little 12 year old kids

I wouldn't be surprised if it did, the PS3 lets you alter the pitch of your mic.

Yes. It was used on Halo 2 in-game all the time. I heard it a few times on Tom Clancy I believe too. Maybe the games added them and not XBL directly, but it was there.

God, I love those old videos! I remember this one specifically...

It was on an old Xbox DVD video that I can't remember where I got from. I do remember it contained this ad as well.


Another thing I remember was trying to get on Dark Master's friend list back then. I eventually did, and ended up playing a bit of Return to Castle Wolfenstein with them. I was only a kid. :p

wow, i didnt realize that this 'Dark Master' gamertag was actually real... i wonder if 'Crusher' or any of the other tags like 'Cheese Filter' they show in the video are real too? they look cheesy but they are like the de-facto gamertags
