cool and all, but just a nostalgia kick from a lot of old dudes who moved to pc, and the novelty of halo on pc. can it maintain is the question.
Yeah, this almost feels like the player base surges that used to happen a lot with Quake 3 & UT and they never lasted but they're fun while they last. One has to imagine though that if Reach is getting this big of a reception then Halos 1-3 will really be popping.

I haven't played a Halo game since the first one on PC and I can't wait to jump back in.

It can also run on low specs which is awesome

Spartans never die. They're just missing in action, and this Spartan's been missing in action for a very long time.

Has not a thing to do with Nintendo but put this man in Smash, he's a mega star

Do it Sakurai
Master Chief and Kratos at E3 2020 would be insane... literal console wars

That's the genius behind releasing each game separately they'll be at top of the news cycle with each release.

Lol, the difference to Gears 5 is huge.

I thought people would prefer to use Game Pass

I had friends staying up until it was available last night. I think this is going to be big if it can maintain a good multiplayer base.

I don’t think they realized when it released haha

For $10 I would have been one of them if it was not for the fact it's on GamePass. Reach is a great game and with the graphical updates and at that price, it is one of the best values on Steam.

Man, a world where Halo went back to being the multiplayer standard instead of COD is a world I wish we could live in.

The ten dollars got me. It's a no brainer at that price. Even twenty would have probably made me play it on gamepass for a month.
