    Out of curiosity, why is it called a 'dump'? Kinda sounds judgemental. Like the game's gonna be a steaming pile of crap until proven otherwise...What's the origin of the term?

    Data isn't saved to the NAND.

    Otherwise the NAND would degrade super quickly.

    edit: Clear the Cache and copy the savedata to a USB.
    This will remove the most traces.
    edit2: Hope you didn't played it with your Live Gamertag.
    Otherwise prepare for a ban if you connect soon ;o

    It's called a dump cause it's copied from a physical copy.
    The game got dumped of it's contents.

    Dunno how to explain better.

    I'm not sure exactly. The game is ripped from the disc, and dumped on your computer is my guess. Dumped a dump. Aha.

    I keep throwing grenades as well :(. Somehow left trigger for them just doesn't seem right. I still don't like the saving system the game uses. Why does it not save at every checkpoint, instead of only when you save and exit. Always worried the system/game will crash after hours of play and have to start from the last time I saved and quit.

    True.

    It's annoying indeed.


    I've adapted quickly to the controls tho.
    After playing Black for hours before playing Halo 4 then reload and riflebutt stomp is awkward xd

    I just changed the controller scheme so that Left trigger is to aim, right stick in is to hit, and RB is to throw a grenade.

    I feel as though it tied up Halo 4 quite nicely. I'm not going to bug 341 Industries for a alternate ending. :D

    It's not flashed either, I don't have any of the hardware to do so/don't know anyone that does
