agreed...beacons should only go off if they are actually playing that game...

on a side note...how are those coop missions coming along for you TC?

Beacons really were one of the stupidest ideas that came with that dashboard update. At the very least, would it have killed them to have something where if you start up a game that someone else has a beacon set for, that it would pop up and say "hey RIMJOBXXX" is looking for folks to play that game. Would you like to send a game invite?"

SnowFox7 ~I heard him use the term 'tarantula downpour', which would actually have been significantly worse than the rain we had that day.

if you have a mic (i don't) , would love to play w/ ya sometime...figure just as long as one of us can call the shot count (for the achievement), it should work...

yeah i had an issue (at least we thought we did) with that same thing when I played it with someone...we got through the final gunfight on the ground and it just seemed to take forever...all of the sudden however they opened up from the buildings (took about 3 or 4 minutes after the last ground battle though)...I thought it had glitched on us

One stupid thing they never fixed was the beacon for Netflix when they axed the party theatre thing. So it still says so n so wants you to watch Netflix when you can't even watch it together anymore.

STUPID!!!

Uh, it already does that? It sounds like that's what the topic creator is talking about too. So I don't see the problem?

Yeah beacons are stupid. I'd rather see what my friends are playing at a glance like the old days.

what they are saying is, it sucks that it says they want to play games that they aren't playing....

like I can have a beacon set "Spark is looking for friends to play Battlefield 3"...but I am actually playing Call of Duty at the time. It makes no sense for the beacon to be active if the person that set a beacon for game A is actually playing game B.
