Thank you for the disclosure that Microsoft paid you to promote Reach.
I have always been a Bungie fan. I have a Marathon tat on the arm, have been to Bungie (even saw the Bungie Weest before they closed it), and own every Bungie game all the way back to Gnop, except . . .
I cannot get into Halo Reach. I just can't. I don't know what it is, maybe it feels too much like a re-hash, maybe it's just not fresh, I don't know how to best put it into words besides disappointment. I bought Reach day 1 and traded it in within two weeks. I really hope Bungie's next project is much better. I'm not saying there aren't good aspects to it. I also do like a variety of games (Halo to SimCity, Little Big Planet to Civilization, Mass Effect to Indie / Arcade Games and everything in between) and genres and don't discriminate too much. I just couldn't get into it.
And $10 for 3 maps. Come on Bungie. For shame. I'm not saying developers need to starve. I worked in game development for a bit some years ago. But $10 for 3 maps. There are enough people buying these DLC come on put in 4 or 5. Or at least wait and put it all together for $20 with new armor, new maps. maybe a new solo level, some new game mode.
