    We were just talking about the rather muted response the characters had to the discovery of Covenant on humanity's second most important planet.

    Not sure where else to lump this, so here's as good as anywhere. It seems Marty is suing Bungie.

    Just this minute finished my third playthrough of this - I haven't played it all the way through since near to its release. I forgot how damn good this game is (Bungie stepping on their own lore notwithstanding) - it's up there with Halo 3 as the best in the series for me.

    I played it because I'm excited for the Master Chief Collection and wanted to play some Halo. Now I'm actually kind of sad that it's not a part of the collection.

    It's still such a beautiful game, too.



    Best Halo skyboxes ever?

    That's a stunning pic coming from a last-gen title!

    I have to admit I bought Reach but never completed it- can someone spoiler tag the plot + ending for me? I assume the Spartans all kick the bucket?

    @Ror1984 I completed it again last month before jumping ship. 10/10 and I agree it is either this or halo 3. Maybe reach though.

    @Kichijoten Both are two of the best games of their generation IMO.

    Part of me wants to give Reach the nod over Halo 3, but that was a pretty epic conclusion of the original Chiefy trilogy. I think I'd just have to put them on an even footing. Both are without a doubt 10/10 games.

    When the Chief Collection comes out, I'm marathoning the whole damn thing.

    I'm going to have to play this through. I'm desperate to play Halo a campaign, but I'm on a self-imposed ban on 1-4 until MCC.

    Also, Halo 5 MP needs the Falcon.

    @altitude2k Exactly why I replayed it this last week!

    Yeah, Reach is easily the best Halo campaign for me on reflection. Still have to go with Halo 3 for mp mainly for time played.

    Halo 4 was some very talented people doing a first attempt, I'm expecting them to knock it out the park for the fifth.

    They have to if they want Halo to remain relevant into the next gen.

    Tempted to buy Reach again to give the campaign another go around.

    I did thoroughly enjoy Reach, but it definitely felt like Bungie were on a bit of a wind-down on Halo. A lot of stuff felt like an experiment, and the whole shared MP/SP map thing felt a little too much like a shortcut, probably due to resources being allocated elsewhere.

    There's one map in there that I somehow only ever managed to get a game on during the beta (Powerhouse) and then never saw again. I was playing through that part of the campaign the other day and only then remembered that it was an MP map.

    That wasn't in the final game? Are you sure?

    No, I mean I never managed to get a game on it in the final game.

    Oh, yeah I read it better the second time.

    I definitely played it in MP, but it cropped up very often in Firefight.

    I did play it in Firefight a bit, actually. I'd forgotten about that. I only ever played Firefight with friends though, and we usually picked Outpost or Overlook.

    Yeah, Outpost was definitely the easiest to hold a defensive position.

    I do love that map for Firefight.

    Nah, it's ok. I'm usually painting it blue and purple anyway.

    Coming back to this lately. All I can play on this game is MLG or BTB otherwise bloom screws me over, I never got used to it.

    Also I hope there is never a voting option in a Halo game ever again, bring back Halo 2 system where it choose a map and gametype for you at random, much better as you get variation, because the Reach community are happy with shitty Hemorrhage every game.

    Yeah, they really need to do away with map voting, the player-base can't be fucking trusted.

    It's in the MCC though - tbh, I'm not that fussed about it in that, as it will be throwing up maps from across all four games.

    I still find that quite odd actually. Being in a multiplayer lobby and facing the opportunity to play across a variety of different games with varying skills/buttons/visuals. Reckon it could be quite jarring. Hopefully we'll learn more at Gamescom?

    I think you have to choose which Halo game (CE, 2, 3 or 4) you want to play if your doing mp, and it gives you all the maps but just from that games mp during that session. That's if I've understood the screenshots of the mp selection and set-up screens that we've seen correctly.

    @binky You can use universal control schemes across all games (though obviously there'll be the odd difference, such as equipment/AAs needing a button for Halo 3/4), so that could alleviate one of those problems.

    We will be seeing more at Gamescom, though. They'll be announcing more at the main Xbox briefing tomorrow afternoon, and also live-streaming the behind-closed-doors demo stuff. Which makes you wonder why it's even behind closed doors to begin with.

    The link says that they're going to be showcasing some multi on an as-yet unannounced map, so I guess we'll be seeing what the next remastered map is.

    I'm hoping for more campaign footage. I'd love to see how 3 and 4 look, but it might be difficult to discern any upgrades in visuals from a web stream.

    They won't show 3 or 4 unless there's big improvements. Don't want to bait the hard of thinking.
