Halo Reach – Kuwaitis Kick @$$

I have been waiting for Halo Reach for a while now, every iteration of Halo just keeps getting better. With this they overhauled the whole gaming system, taking it to another level so that people can enjoy the game even more. Now this montage by a group of 5 Kuwaiti gamers playing the Beta version of Halo gets my blood pumping, I so would want to join them in their rampage and killing sprees! The guy with the warhammer is pretty damn good, he is killing people left right and center. My favorite is the rocket launcher, I just love that weapon, but I want to have a little more ammo. There are new techniques to keep in mind when fighting because sneaking up on people is now completely different then before and it looks damn good. It was fun watching these teams battle it out in the team tournament, and at the end the blue team won.

Halo Reach – MultiPlayer Galore

Reach takes place in a futuristic science fiction setting during the year 2552, days before the events of the 2001 video game Halo: Combat Evolved. Humans, under the auspices of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC), have been waging a long war against a collective of alien races known as the Covenant. By the events of Reach, almost all of humanity’s interstellar colonies have fallen. Reach itself is an Earthlike colony that serves as the UNSC’s main military hub. In addition to the military presence, the colony is home to 500 million civilians.

The game follows the actions of Noble Team, a UNSC special operations unit composed of elite supersoldiers known as Spartans. Players assume the role of an unnamed new addition to the team, identified by the call sign Noble 6. Noble Team’s leader is Carter-259, a no-nonsense soldier. His second-in-command, Kat-320, has a bionic arm; together Carter and Kat are the only two remaining original members of Noble Team. The other members include heavy weapons specialist Jorge-052, Emile-239, and marksman Jun-226.

As a loyal Halo fan I think I just keep wait for each iteration of this game and how they are going to top it, for a while Halo 3 was going to be the last release as they were working on it but luckily they felt that there was still more to do. Then there was ODST which was fantastic but still not enough, it didn’t satisfy my hunger for this game, we finished it within hours and now Halo Reach has come to pass. From what I have read and seen I have been told that they have gone back to the drawing board and reworked the whole graphics and AI engine, meaning the bad guys are meaner and the explosions are bigger. The best part is always the story, this time about how the Spartans came to be and somewhat the story of Masterchief, but even with one player they knew to concentrate on the multiplayer game which is what we keep playing again and again. Just by looking at the trailer below it looks to be a lot more detailed, meaner, tougher, and a lot more fun. You can really customize the your Spartan this time around and it seems the weapons are more potent then they were before. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game, I will dedicate my time to finish it and annihilate those in multiplayer.
