Hands-on with the Xbox One: OXM's community night highlights

As an aside: I'm presuming this is the last time we'll see that ident at the start? I'm going to strangely miss that "wooohhmmmpph" at the start of the videos myself.

Ah, my claim to fame at last. I'm standing to the left of the shot while Aoife is doing her introduction. There are quick flashes of me playing Killer Instinct and chatting with Ed.

If you're wondering why I'm not in the interviews, it's because I kept running away! :lol:

I was watching a guy play Ryse. I hadn't seen the camera at that point.

One more thing, no media outlet is more deserving of being allowed to hold 12 XBO's for her readers to try out, OXM has the best and most complete Xbox coverage, and that goes for OXM UK only, OXM US sucks.

Don't know what OXM US is like,but definatly agree with the rest of what you said Cherokee,as i just had a quick look here in bed lol An its just to post in the same sentiment as yourself.

I saw the article back when they were giving readers the chance to attend this event,and although i couldn't enter,i thought at the time that was a great thing they were doing. I don't know if they do these types of things often as i've only posted here infrequently for a little while now,it's also the only Magazine site that i've took part posting in before and in relation of this i'm just gona say why.

First of all i'd just add i've no idea how i come across myself to others here,but i havn't got anything but good things to say about my time viewing an posting here. I think OXM are great at providing us a whole days various articles every single day to read. Then when they are off for the weekend,Ben kindly fills us with news all weekend too. I also think the way the OXM team communicate and interact with the people who post here is first class also.
On that note,although i am still finding my feet as in not knowing people here,i also think that the majority of people who post here are good to read and communicate with also. An even if we don't agree on things,it seems to me anyway we can at least talk in a mature way about it,and its possibly down to OXM aswell and how they integrate that the majority of people post here is as pleasant as it is. At least thats what i found so far.

Apart from random "your all noobs" posts lol Or OXM being accused being paid to say things its pretty civilised,with a decent sense of humour mixed although,Ed's piece on Titan Debra i thought was a brilliant read,i'm dodging adding a comment there as i could add inuendos which go to far lol

Anyway,this aint a suck up,i just wanted to add my own sentiment like Cherokee as i just think if praise is due,why not say it,i just say what i think an OXM an this site are top notch for me.

Bedtime now,see ya's whenever :wink:

Nice to finally put a face to the guy who keeps beating 7 shades out of me each night :lol:

Not looked too much into the Xbox One aside from E3 and a couple of titbits but I am starting to get really excited for November 22nd now.

Thank you sir, for your lovely kind words; we're pretty lucky to have such a great community round these parts. I'm breaking out my new favourite gif to celebrate:

Obviously, Ed's the leader in the middle there. Dibs being the one on the right in the purple dungarees.

There's no way I could bust out that sick grab* the kid in the back is pulling off so I must be the one looking like he's trying to stay upright on the left.

And thanks ever so much for the lovely words from me too, TronZler!
