I got a good chuckle out of this. I'm too busy playing Mass Effect 2 and discovering that Socrates was the first acid addict ever to play Reach.

Well, I just finished playing Reach for a few hours in matchmaking and custom games (haven't started the campaign, since I won't be able to get a good solid gaming session until Friday) after picking up my preordered limited edition from GameStop. The matchmaking was pretty much the same as the beta was, you just aren't restricted to whatever the folks Bungie felt like testing that day.
Overall, the game play is somehow very different and yet very familiar to Halo 3's.
I think that the main thing that makes it really stand out from Halo 3 (game play wise) is the addition of the different classes. Generally speaking the game is very similar though and it definitely has the whole Halo vibe shining out from every line of code embedded into the disc

The weapons in Reach are generally the same. I haven't really tinkered around with them enough yet to get a good feel for everything, but most things seem the same. The only glaring differences here are the loss of dual wielding (B)), use of ODST's magnum and the fact that the whole plasma pistol combo seems to work extremely well again.

Reach's vehicle control scheme seems to be reminiscent of Halo 2's with the addition of the ability to sway from side to side while flying straight (great for dodging rockets). On a sad note, the Hornets are gone and have been replaced by the Falcons.

The best thing about Reach so far though is Forge 2.0 (Bungie's console game modding for the inept :P). It's light years ahead of the first one and most/all of the major issues have been fixed.

Bottom line: Goodbye free time, HELLO REACH!

Edit: I wonder if Mag will feed this thread to the "Video Game Thread" too...

What can I say except, you, sir, are the voice of reason, in a dark spiral of nonsense and absurdity.

Dark? What is this darkness you speak of?
I only see the bright light of Reach being glassed.

Indeed, I only see the glint of sunlight reflected off the shinny bauble that used to be a planet...

My Opinion: Shooters suck.
Exception: Games where you shoot portals instead of bullets.
