Out for delivery as of 8:56 a.m., an hour and a half ago. C'mon, the UPS location is five minutes away from my apartment! Let's go!

Re: Halo: Reach

Started playing at quarter to 10 this morning, had a break for about an hour around 1ish, and ive just completed it at quarter to 5.

Great game, but bloody short.

EDIT: Make that 5 to 5.

On what difficulty setting? Heroic? Legendary?

So they'll probably show up to your place last on their way back to the warehouse.

Oh, only normal. So it was fairly easy, I just feel the spaces arent that expansive. Your only gonna get more time just with harder enemies, and while that kinda is how its "supposed" to be, I think its pretty cheap.

Same with the multiplayer maps. Except Forge World, EVERY SINGLE MAP is in the Campaign. With only very minor alterations too. That seems a lil cheap as well to me.

Re: Halo: Reach

My copy just arrived a few minutes ago. I now have a decision to make: after lunch, do I play Reach... or do I actually watch my Middle Eastern Politics lecture? Choices, choices...

That was a conscious design decision. Bungie felt that doing so would tie multiplayer and single-player campaigns together, rather than having two entirely separate, disjointed experiences as had normally been the case in the past.

Re: Halo: Reach

Xbox Live Halo: Reach Poll Question of the Day:
"How much time do you plan on missing from work/school to play Halo: Reach this week?"

1) None. After hours is all I can do.
2) Shhh. I am sick... cough, cough.
3) Halo is my job and I take n00bs to school.
4) I might need a new job/school after this week.

Love it!

There's also a free invasion theme available; find it on the Spotlight channel. Installing the game to hdd right now so that it's all ready for me to play when I can get to it.

Dear Amazon.com...

Fuck you!

---

This is what I wake up to this morning
Hello from Amazon.com.

We're sorry for the delay in shipping the order you placed on August 11 2010 (Order# ...). We have good news -- the order is now being shipped! You should receive a shipping notification shortly, within the next business day, for the following item(s):

"Halo Reach"
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002BSA20M

The shipping notification will include an updated estimated delivery date and tracking information if it's available.

Because we were unable to meet our guaranteed delivery date promise, we are refunding the shipping charges for your entire order. This refund should be processed within the next few days, and we will send you an e-mail to let you know when the refund has been completed.

We will make every effort to get the delayed item(s) to you as soon as possible and we'll send you an e-mail to confirm shipment.

Any other items in your order will not be affected by this delay.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay.
They're refunding my shipping charges... big damned deal, it was a whopping 99 cents! And that whole "shipping now" was also BS as I have still yet to receive a shipping notice. Fortunately a friend of mine is going to get his, so I'll be over there...

Re: Halo: Reach

Gaaaahhh! I just got home from work a few minutes ago, and my copy still isn't here. I must be like on one of the last parts of UPS' delivery route or something, because it's been marked as "out for delivery" since 8:40 AM.

Re: Halo: Reach

Important note: While Halo 3 was developed before installation to the hard drive was even rumored, much less an option, Halo: Reach benefits greatly from installation (to the tune of load times reduced by 15 - 30 seconds).

I thought the load times (competed to Halo 3 and ODST) were great just playing from the disc. Especially in multiplayer, where it used to take up a minute for me to load a map, now it can load Forge world in about 20 seconds tops.
