Feedback -- Halo: Reach, Post-Tokyo Game Show Edition
On this week's Feedback, Kevin Kelly, Abbie Heppe, J.P. Shub, and Nikole Zivalich discuss TGS 2010, Halo: Reach, and it's always good to have a pheromone-filled water gun.

    There's an idea for an HD collection, Megaman Legends. Throw in Misadventures of Tron Bonne, and I'd get it.

    Team AI is setup to create the "I'm the man in this story" scenario. They are intentionally dumb so the players feel as though they are the only force that is relevant in the storyline. I personally would prefer to be the assisting teammate, instead of the guy the story centers around when it comes to battlefield exploits. Not every team based FPS needs to be a one-man army with chatterboxes tagging along to make noise so I feel as though they are doing something.

    Japan has a long history of resisting change. They can embrace new things and when they do they go all out. But the hard part for them is that first step. Just look at the history of japan. Look at their level of technology before and after WWII. Tradition is deeply rooted into their culture that sometimes they refuse progress to their own detriment.

    its pretty obvious what happens in reach just by using simple logic,"remember reach"?
    watch the trailer you can kind of tell things dont end well

    I say the first 4 Silent Hill games in HD. NOW that would be an amazing collection to have. You know.. the ONLY Silent Hill games that were great.

    Swat needs to get its own match making lobby... so I can avoid it.

    It's not really a spoiler because before Halo 2 even came out a little novel titled "Halo Fall of Reach" was released. This novel is an awesome tale about how the Spartans came to be, and how thier last vestige of hope fell by the hand of the covenant. It's a great read, you should check it out.

    J.P. felt right at home, he brought a lot of insight and humor to the episode. I hope to see him included in future episodes.

    P.S. I miss Patrick ;-;

    I was about to write a meaningful comment but then I said "screw this - more Halo".

    I'll add my voice that some more discussion of Forge World would be welcome and interesting. I've spent equal time in campaign and matchmaking as I have just fooling around building maps. Most of the time I don't even care if anybody but me plays them, it is so relaxing just constructing a world.
    The only thing that I can even think of that compares with Forge World in Reach is Little Big Planet, which is another stellar game (and before that Morrowind).
    Shouldn't it be a given that all FPS/RPG/Action/Adventure games are shipped with a robust map/mission editor and bountiful customization?

    Amazing show as always :D Rape games? thats messed lol, As for an HD remake i would love to see the old Megaman X games, The Legend of Dragoon, Pretty much anything on Super Nintendo XD

    *Scroll to Bottom for TLDR*

    *Spoiler Alert*

    I loved the story for reach, and it was a nice breath of fresh air from what i've played of the 1st four games. During the cut scenes i noticed some blurring, but thats probably my crappy TV. When i finally beat it *On Legendary 1st play through* I felt extremely proud of myself like "YEAH! i just saved the human race!" during the credits i remembered something: "Reach Falls" and my heart sunk like a brick.

    Then the "Lone Wolf" level played, my visor breaking and the general chaos reassured me that this planet is gone, and when i finally died and saw noble six fight to the very end i felt something that i have never felt while completing a game, and that was Failure. I felt that those 16 hours of intense, sometimes frustrating and insanely-hard work was all in vain.

    I knew before i played Reach that the planet gets glassed. But when i was playing it that idea never came to mind i somehow still had hope that we'd win. Boy was i wrong. All in all the ending was top notch, and left me with the exact feeling im sure Bungie wanted me to feel: Bittersweet.

    I Believe Jun died in the explosion when noble team was flying out of the glacier. But i could be wrong?

    I also just would've loved to have Noble Six survive somehow, highjack a banshee and fly off into space or something. But doing that would require another Halo game and i dont think Bungie wants in on that XD

    TLDR: Ending is Boss, Made me feel Bittersweet.

    liked the episode, but gotta comment that it seems like Abbie was hosting the show... she probably said twice as much as the host, Kevin. This probably was my favorite appearance of JP on the show, seemed like he had a very good show. Nikole didn't talk very much. i think outside of the talk for Halo, she had like 3 lines of speak... Grow some balls woman! everyone doesn't need to agree with you, God knows we don't agree with the other people most of the time; we just want to hear your opinion!

    I enjoy seeing new people on Feedback and getting to know the personalities of the people who review the games, write previews, and post stuff on G4. I just wish Nicole would talk more, so we can know more about her.
