    Had to work late tonight, so I only got in a couple games.

    I like the legendary edition bonus. The flaming heads are much easier to hit. :devil:

    I picked up my pre-ordered copy today, and played some of the campaign. I'm really liking it so far. :techman:

    haha I'm still stuck on the Cortana level of Halo 3 so I'm in no rush to pick this up. Although I probably will next payday.

    Haven't even played ODST yet. Own it, just haven't played it.

    What I want to know about Reach is, does it screw up continuity with the Fall of Reach novel? I'm assuming it doesn't, as the Halo guys have proven that they are trying to keep a cohesive canon going, ala the Star Wars stuff.

    Quick sidenote: I like how in the book Reach falls around Sept 14th 2552, and the game was released on the 14th. Thought that was cool.

    Quick question: I finished the game this morning and I unlocked the "UNSC Falcon with controller" thingy. I downloaded it but I have no idea where I could display it?

    It'll be in the area where you customize your avatar, I'm assuming. Where you change your clothes and stuff. Just load it up like you would if you were changing your avatar's hat or shirt and it'll probably fly around you or something silly like that.

    I'm re-reading the Fall of Reach novel right now, but I won't end up playing the game until it drops in price six months from now... :p

    ^ Exactly, it's an XBL avatar prop, like the RC Warthog and the 343 Guilty Spark style Monitor.

    Edit:

    Legendary, baby!

    ^^ If THAT comes with the Legendary Edition, I'm definitely NOT getting it. Got enough of those little creatures running around already. ;)

    ^ :D BTW, PennyArcade's recent comic also deals with the matter of parents playing Halo: Reach ;)

    Yeah, good luck with that. This is a Halo title; it'll still be selling well enough in 6 months that there's very little chance of a price drop.

    Should be picking this up at the weekend. I'm not a big Halo fan, to be honest (only played H3, and was a bit underwhelmed), but you can't ignore the reviews this game's getting.

    I fucked up and had my game delivered to my parent's house. Now I have to spend 20 bucks on a bus ticket and a day to go home and pick it up. Guh. :lol:

    Whoa. Whoa. Is it just me, or...


    ...Is there no Legendary ending to the game?! Im sorry, but first its SUPER short and now when I play through on Legendary theres no added sweetness to it? I love the story, but having no legendary ending just pisses me off...

    I keep forgetting how to do code, but isn't there a post-credits sequence?

    Edit: Anyone interested in doing campaign coooop? It seems they took away matchmaking. :(

    I know, I saw that. It's still silly... I mean, unless you're not even allowed to pick which mission to start from in co-op.
