Oh graduation, how I hated mine last year with being stuck outside in a downpour. It was absolutely awful.

Cool that he will speak at the High School though.

I have a feeling that he might get heckled.

They say she's low down, but it's just a rumor I don't believe 'em.

MS should really fire Major Nelson. He comes off as a massive tool and douche, just like Don (even before his comments about getting a 360) He is not a very good PR guy.

I don't know why major nelson gets so much hate. I think he's a great PR guy. He's personable, and I've seen people message him directly with MS support issues and he takes care of them immediately.

I wish he spoke at my graduation. The best we had was some 15 year old who was valedictorian.

What has he done that's so bad? The only thing I saw was when at 2013's E3, he argued with that youtube channel guy.

On this board, it seems like all the haters just hate on him for everything he does, sometimes even petty things like what he wears (his suit at E3 for example).

I dunno why. It's just how I see him, I suppose. Even when I got my 360 back in 2008, and saw the community section of the dashboard, his videos made me cringe, he's trying way too hard (in my opinion). There's not much reason behind it other than I just don't like him. Again, same with Don. Except Don had a seriously smug look on his face, good thing he's gone and we have Phil now. Phil is a gigabro.

It seems like an awkward choice for a guest speaker at a high school. "Hey graduates, you know who we got to speak at your ceremony! ? Microsoft's community relations manager for the Xbox brand game consoles! You all like games right!?" . Who knows though maybe it's his alma mater?
