I can't believe they don't have Master Chief in it. He was at Reach, after all. I was hoping in the final level you play beside him as an invincible NPC or something. Or at least hear about what he's doing on the radio while you're fighting.
The chief is in it. For all of 2 seconds, but he's there, definately :P
Where?

I'm so very glad he's not in it. The MC is a very cool character, but the Halo universe is too big and too interesting not to tell its stories from different perspectives. That's why I thoroughly enjoyed the novels as well as Halo Wars and ODST.

IMO, a fitting analogy would be the Star Trek universe - not every story that's worth telling has to be about the crew of Enterprise.
Agreed. One of the reasons why I liked ODST so much was because of the lack of Master Chief (and Cortana). I don't really get the appeal, personally.

Re: Halo: Reach

Dac, downloaded your colossus remake. That's pretty good stuff right there, I especially like what you did with the lift and the upside down one at the top to make you land correctly. Excellent.

Re: Halo: Reach

Master Chief is the greatest! He's the selfless messianic figure in the Haloverse. I really loved how the third game showed how magical and inspiring he was to the troops. Also, Cortana's the greatest. The voice, the sense of humor, the corruption by Gravemind. I loved how the third game was practically a love story between Master Chief and Cortana, I actually found it quite touching.

Why thank you

The upside down lift makes you land correctly plus it stops you losing all but one bar of health when you hit the ceiling (Also, If anyone is gonna play a game on that, for the love of god don't use your jetpack while on the lift, you'll end up hitting the ceiling so hard you'll kill yourself ).

Speaking of personal experiences like that, I found out a couple days ago that ramming a Wraith while driving a Revenant is not a good idea.

Re: Halo: Reach

Haha, on the other hand, armor locking while a ghost is boosting at you is SO much fun

I agree, a great homage to Colossus

Re: Halo: Reach

^ Indeed.

A propos of map remakes, here's a pretty nice Damnation (Halo: CE) remake I'm a huge fan of the original map, and I'd say this is a very impressive recreation.

In other news, here's more on that awesome PR stunt in London:

Re: Halo: Reach

BTW, I think it's great that this time around, they acknowledge the fact that Solo Legendary is significantly harder than Co-Op via the AMTAYS achievement.

Co-Op is extremely fun, but it makes Legendary almost trivial if you can zerg everything to death.
