I had originally purchased the Legendary Edition (yes, I'm a sucker for the franchise and I really want that kickass statue), but I had to downgrade to the regular edition after losing my job a couple months ago. Seriously looking forward to the game, though I'm finding my anticipation somewhat different this time around. In the past, I was paying attention to pretty much every scrap of news that came out about each game, but with Reach, for the most part I've only watched the trailers. I haven't intentionally avoided reading about it, but I haven't actively sought out information either.
Hah, well, it was leaked and someone uploaded the ending if you want to avoid that stuff. :lol
