Kind of boring, but if those graphics are in-engine, they're looking much better. We still need to do some four player ODST. You, Katie, Joe and I. It would be dope!

I hate to pimp my crap too much, but I do feel this is worth the attention of some around here...

Hey, remember this topic? And guess who got an early invite to the Reach beta?

And guess what: I suck as just as badly in Reach as I do already in 3 and ODST. Yay!

Oh, hey, let's team up and play. I got my key yesterday evening, and have played a bit. I guess we don't have the full deal yet and they're just stress testing, and then we'll get the full experience Monday. I was mostly excited for invasion mode and the Elite vs. Spartan stuff, so I'm not too psyched on it right now.

A few folks have pointed out that Reach is not quite as polished as 3...

... But it is a beta after-all. Then there's this semi-helpful instructional vid for us noobs, hosted by an "African American female"...

They probably toned some stuff down so that they could run more polys in the character models and so they could have more characters on screen at once.

Hey Dave, did you hear about the dudes that simply wouldn't stop playing Halo 2?

Yeah I had heard about that. Bungie gave them Reach beta codes. That's funny that there are just two left, still holding on. I'm glad Microsoft hasn't kicked them.

We haven't talked about Reach enough. This game gets more promising all the time. Check these out:

I know this place is a ghost town and all, but I'm a little sad that Dave has not talked about all the fun he's having in Reach right now. Sad

Picked this up yesterday. Pretty sweet, but the campaign was just not as cool as Halo 3's. At one point there are some Scarabs, but you don't even get to destroy them. Nothing terribly wowing, although the story was pretty good considering that was no MC and minimal Cortana. Mostly just psyched on the multiplayer this time around.

Hey, Bungie figured out how to model and animate faces finally! Also, the lighting in Reach can get pretty delicious, particularly the scene right after that biddy dies.
