Halo: Reach

It just occured to me there isn't an active Halo: Reach thread around here.

Here's the new, extended cut for the Deliver Hope live action trailer:


Goosebump-worthy I'd say.

Anyways, only five more days to go! Amazon.co.uk claims to ship my Legendary Edition on September 13th

Re: Halo: Reach

I only pre-ordered the regular edition. I like Halo, but not quite enough to drop $80 on the limited edition, and certainly not enough to drop $150 on the Legendary Edition.

I did get a $20 credit toward a future game purchase at Amazon, though, so that'll come in handy when Call of Duty: Black Ops releases in November.

The multiplayer beta was fun. Otherwise I wouldn't be giving it a second thought. Not after ODST.

Re: Halo: Reach

Im kind of burned out on the Halo franchise. That being said, Halo: The Fall of Reach was a great military sci-fi novel so I'm interested in the story. I for may bite if only that.

That's actually the main reason I am so hyped about the game - reading The Fall of Reach back in the day made me a glutton for Halo lore.

Indeed. That novel (and perhaps a few of the other ones) is the best thing about the franchise. Make of that what you will

Re: Halo: Reach

Co-op matchmaking is the only reason why I'm interested in picking up the game when it releases. Here's hoping it works anyway.

Re: Halo: Reach

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.

Re: Halo: Reach

I'll get this sometime in 2011 when a price drop occurs because I only care about Halo for co-op play. I have zero interest in online versus mode due to well annoying little kids and bunny hopping mad OTT gameplay.

Hah, well, it was leaked and someone uploaded the ending if you want to avoid that stuff. :lol

Re: Halo: Reach

Just read the news over at halo.bungie.org, no danger of spoiling anything - Louis Wu & his buddies know their stuff and go to extreme lengths to avoid spoilers.

Re: Halo: Reach

After realizing that I probably wouldn't be able to walk in a store and grab the limited edition, I opted instead of preordered it on Amazon last night. I sprung for the super dooper delivery because I really want to get it on launch I also opted for the limited edition because I really want Halsey's journal. That looks like a quality tie in product.

As for the leaked stuff, i came across a cutscene from the game but only managed to watch 2 seconds of it before my spoiler sense kicked in. Unfortunately, I think that 2 seconds was enough to get the gist of the scene though.

My principles say any game where a sticky grenade on someone's face fails to kill them 50% of the time is a waste of money.

Was that something in the beta? Every sticky grenade I've stuck has always been a kill in Halo 2, 3 and ODST firefight.
