Re: Halo: Reach

OK, I finally finished playing Reach last night! While the story was pretty non-existent compared to the trilogy the gameplay and settings were great. Technically it's definitely the best Halo game with the best level design.

Oh, and I wish you could use the jetpack the entire game!

So in the final stage "Lone Wolf", do you get something for surviving a certain amount of time? Do the enemies just get stronger and stronger until they kill you? Does a Scarab show up eventually?

Re: Halo: Reach

I am slowly working up to the rank of Captain so I can get the dang achievement. After initially playing through the campaign on normal and heroic I got up to WO. Now, after countless hours of firefights and two more play throughs on normal I have reached WO Grade 3 and still have about three-quarters of the way to go to get Captain. Grrrrr.

WO GR3 will be the longest stretch in a single rank you will experience

I'll do the same, now that I finally have decent internet access again! Hell, maybe I'll even play some competitive Halo: Reach...!

Edit: I mean, I basically have to, now that I've installed the stat tracking app on my Android phone

Re: Halo: Reach

New playlist is up called "TU Beta". It implements the title update that went out at the end of September. It's a testing ground for new features that will be implemented into the CE Anniversary playlist.

Re: Halo: Reach

I finally reached Captain Grade 1 over summer and got my achievement. Yay! I think I've played enough of the campaign to last me a lifetime, though.

I really should get back to playing this again. After trying Battlefield 3 for the past week, I really can't get into it. When it works its fun, but for me its been a glitchy, frustrating graphically inferior piece of shit on the Xbox. I look forward to Halo Anniversary and the new (old) Reach maps.

Yeah, I couldn't bring myself to playing BF3 on my PS3 or 360 because of the mind-boggingly inferior graphics - unfortunately, I can't afford a gaming-grade PC right now, so no BF3 for me for the time being

Yeah, Anniversary will be huge for me as well, pre-ordered it months ago. The old multiplayer balancing and maps I love combined with Reach's slick graphics.

Also, Silent Cartographer in HD

Re: Halo: Reach

While the new map pack doesn't arrive on Marketplace until tomorrow, the Anniversary playlists are up, and there are people playing. I guess these are people with special advance copies, and/or 343 employees.

Anyway, there are 5 playlists currently dedicated to the new map pack:

Anniversary Squad
Anniversary Big Team Battle
Anniversary Free For All
Anniversary Firefight
Anniversary Classic
