    Too bad it's not coming to PC so I'll never play it, I just can't stand inferior console controls, not to mention that I don't own any crappy obsolete consoles.

    Walk into room, Natal knows its me and signs me in. I start up Halo Reach and tell Natal no whinny 15 year olds and Reach's preferences adjust to my spoken demand. Well half of that will probably happen. I didn't want the video to end lol. Sadly my little town of who the hell cares about these people has satellite broadband so I'll be missing this beta until I move out of the boonies! Come on Obama, I need internet for Reach and SCII!

    All the people speculating on Game of the Year...stop. Wait 'til December then speculate. Even then it's completely subjective as just about every video game organisation out there has their own GOTY vote. Remember how Fable 2 won in 2008 on X-Play? Yeah...me too.

    Can't wait for two things. First, to play this game. Second, for the comic geniuses at Red vs Blue to get a hold on this game. Can you picture caboose in a jetpack? Yes, I can, and it's hilarious!

    Everything looks awesome, except for the med-packs. Do away with them Bungie and this will be perfect!

    Damnit!! Why does the beta have to be such a tease. I'm glad they're using the Beta release wisely, making sure that any rough edges in the gameplay are tweaked for the final release. One thing I'm scared about though (Not about Halo but the Xbox 360 itself) is the fact that i keep hearing developers saying that they're "tapping out" the XBox's hardware. No Offense to Halo Reach, the game from here looks extremely detailed and pretty, but i guess I expected even more in the future. It could just be me being unrealistic, but I have seen games on the PS3 and PC that look a tad better, so that gives me reason for concern...

    I just borrowed my little brothers copy of Halo because he wont stop talking about Reach. I decided to see what the fuss was all about. For the first time last weekend, I sat down and attempted to get into the multiplayer. I played all three campaigns but never mp. Playing after being so engrossed with more "modern shooters" (MW2, BFBC2, and Killzone 2), its an incredibly refreshing change of pace for me. Im now just as excited for reach. The loadouts are a great addition. It just looks fantastic to me. Cant wait :D. My Gamertag is SK1NNY Jr if anyone wants to party up for fun. Im not too competitive. No yet anyway
