Get tips to excel online with this Halo: Reach Multiplayer Map Guide.

Sure, the story of Halo: Reach is epic and heartbreaking and utterly captivating, but the fall of a planet and the deaths of millions is small potatoes next to the ability to mercilessly pwn some bitches online.

Missing Master Chief?

Posted September 16, 2010 - By MonfetteG4

It’s a rare and gutsy move for a franchise to shift its focus away from an iconic – and more importantly, marketable – protagonist in favor of exploring some tangental element of the gameworld. Before the unique aesthetic or hallmark location that identifies titles like Fallout or BioShock, an identifiable hero can make or break a franchise. Certainly, games such as Halo or God War or Devil May Cry would somehow be made lesser by the absence of Master Chief, Kratos or Dante...Without their familiar brand of blood-letting, the series would inevitably stumble and falter, right?

Or would they?

Halo: Reach Trailer Unveils Multiplayer Gameplay

Microsoft Game Studios vice-president Phil Spencer asked the crowd at his Tokyo Game Show keynote today to forgive him while he, well, gloated a little bit. According to Spencer, Halo: Reach had generated $200 million in sales after just one day on store shelves. The game also surpassed Halo 3’s record for most simultaneous Xbox Live users online at one time.

Some other nuggets from Spencer’s presentation:

  • The Xbox 360 has been the top-selling console in North America for three months running. It is also supposedly the No. 1 console in Europe, although Spencer offered no numbers to back up that claim. (He says it is based on Microsoft’s “sell-through data.”)
  • Japanese games for the Xbox 360 have accounted for $2.1 billion in sales to date (conversion rate: 10.5 Halo: Reach launch days). That’s more than double the $1 billion in Japanese games sold over the lifespan of the original Xbox.

Halo: Reach

I was up way too late last night playing Halo: Reach to think coherently about anything but Halo: Reach. Man, that game is fun. Anyway, in my bleary-eyed, pre-coffee state, I'm incapable of providing a topic for you guys, so I ask you humbly to comment on whatever you'd like... as long as it's not politics or great bargains on designer shoes from a Chinese website.

Witness Titanic-Esque Finale Of Halo: Reach

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! Before you proceed any further you should know that what you are about to see is the actual ending of Halo: Reach. The big finale. The final curtain. Once you click play, you will witness Reach, and her inhabitants’, last moments, so if you want to keep your Reach experience pure and spoiler-free, speed boost away from the following video (and the comments section of this post). For everyone else, grab some tissues and a comfy blanket, and watch as Reach comes to a close.

Hit the jump to watch the ending. And don't say we didn't warn you.

Halo: Reach Multiplayer

Halo: Reach has been on store shelves for six hours. You've hear what we think of the game, but now it's your turn. Honest reactions requested! Let us know in the comment section what you think of Reach. Any surprises? Any let-downs? Favorite moments?

Here's the rundown on Halo: Reach History - before the Fall of Reach. If you factor in the games, books, comics, anime and cinematic marketing promos – not to mention a carefully guarded and famously unproduced screenplay – the Halo universe has a more robust mythology than most epic sci-fi series. A combination of Battlestar-esque military intrigue and prophetic alien folklore, the battle between the humans and the Covenant – let alone the celebrated adventures of Master Chief – can no doubt fill volumes. And indeed, it already has. So to attempt a concise history of the events surrounding the fall of Reach, which in itself is only just the beginning of the conflict, is basically the feat of a madman.

But if you’re preparing yourself for the kamikaze last-stand of the ill-fated Noble Team, we’ve got a brief, albeit handy, guide to all that came before. The short version goes something like this: explosion, explosion, dropship, screaming, BIG EXPLOSION, silence…The longer version takes a bit more time…

There are publicity stunts and then there are publicity stunts -- Microsoft's hype for Halo: Reach includes probably the coolest PR stunt I've ever heard of. A man dressed as a Spartan showed up at London's Trafalgar Square, hit a button and flew into the air using an actual jetpack. A freakin' jetpack! Where do I sign up for that guy's job?

Yes, there's video. Check it out:

Halo: Reach

Halo fans, the long wait for Bungie's last game in the series, Halo: Reach, is finally over. After months of speculation, videos that made mouths water worldwide, beta testing the multiplayer, slowly leaked facts about the storyline, and speculation about what the prequel to the Halo series would contain, the answers are finally here.

Our own Kevin Kelly had the not-at-all torturous assignment to play the game and give us a review, and the Halo faithful will be happy to know that it meets, and, in a large way, exceeds all of that hype.

According to Kevin:


"Bungie's decision to veer away from Master Chief and instead feature a squad of Spartans with players driving replacement newcomer Noble Six, has paid off. Halo: Reach stands as a fitting capstone to Bungie's five-title legacy, both in campaign and multiplayer. Come for the story, stay for the fragging ... and eventually, the teabagging."

Need and want more? Then read our Halo: Reach review for all the gory details.

Halo: Reach - The First 15 Minutes In-Game is now available for your viewing enjoyment.

Watch the beginning of the game unfold as you join Noble Team, find out what happens when The Covenant come to Reach for the first time and see the start of an epic invasion.

I think the video speaks for itself, but let us know your thoughts in the comments.
