Celebrity Xbox Avatars

 

The New Xbox avatars are lacking in many, many, many categories, but pointy ears ain't one of them. I wouldn't be surprised if the selection of silly elf lobes was greater than that for men's shoes. Combined with the choices of blue top and pale skin, Spock was practically begging to be born (evidence: SomethingAwful has one too.)

 

Technically, this suit is "tan" and not black. Hopefully, the wraparound sunglasses, vacant expression and spoon-bending furrow of concentration on Neo's forehead will distract you from that fact.

 

Geek bait here. The avatar tools don't include hairstyles for half the people in our office, but they do include intergalactic cinnamon buns, circa 1977. The rest was easy - I could have given her a beard and a monocle and you wouldn't have cared.

 

Movie Voldemort actually has icy blue eyes... I borrowed from the book version so I could use the sinister red eyes. Hopefully, Microsoft will expand the avatar options to include fun stuff like wizard cloaks and wands in the future.


 

Blade Runner's kind of a random choice, but I had to find a use for this strange makeup mask. You could have gotten the Hamburglar instead, so be grateful.

    Every night, when chuck norris goes to bed, he turns on his night light. It's not because Chuck Norris is afraid of the dark, it's because the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris. I have a bunch of these jokes lol.

    Seriously, not to spoil everyone's fun, but what's up with Microsoft adding the avatars to xbox360 live*. I don't get it, are they trying to copy WII or something? Also i'm kinda upset with the new dashboard. I don't like it.

    thought it was quite strange that if a game avatar was from an exclusive, it wasnt a 360 exclusive.

    how come all the avatars have to act so gay like jumping around and you know being gay not that i have a problem with it i just think it is super annoying oh yah and microsoft should have done this a lot sooner so they wouldnt have looked like chods compared to the wii and ps3(the 360 kicks ass)

  • BigBossOSE - November 28, 2008 5:35 p.m.

    I feel like it should be mentioned that his name is Vault Boy. The Pip-Boy is the arm-worn computer the player wears.
