  1. Reaching for Civilization?

    Someone asked me if Reach was getting any less frustrating the other day. I replied that at this point I was almost more happy playing Civilization and telling the other rulers to suck it as I am with Reach. Of course, after that we went on to play Reach for quite some time and shoot people in the face. That was until my internet connection dropped and then it was back to directing the Indians in their struggle with the English, Zulus, and the Germans. The Japanese stayed out of my way because ...

  2. Big Game Halo

    I went to my in-laws this weekend. Needless to say there was little gaming time until Sunday night. They are a very nice family, but gamers they are not. They are hunters and fishers. Growing up I would do both with my father and always had a good time. As I got older the opportunity to go with him became less, but we still manage to sneak out on occasion. In my wife's family, its almost a religion. I will admit to having a lot of fun with them. Its certainly a different kind of relaxing ...

  3. Another night of Reach

    The venture into the arena wasn't quite what I was expecting when I powered on my Xbox last night. Hopping into a room with Chaos, she suggested we play 'Doubles Arena' while we wait for the others. In we go and out we come with a perfect record in dubs. Only one game was very close, but thanks to overcoming continuous camping and Chaos influencing a great spawn we were able to sneak out with the 'W'.

    Camping seems more frequent in this Halo than in any of the previous games. ...

  4. A Reach timeout

    I didn't play Reach last night, which is probably good in one way or another for everyone. I did get to sparingly curse at the Wings game last night. That was in between my wife telling me how nervous I make her when I watch them and her flipping back to 'One Tree Hill' and some other maddening show.

    We did watch the first Chilean miner come to the surface after over two months. My wife was crying like a baby. She is pregnant, and the hormones are raging, but I'm pretty sure ...

  5. Reach...*sigh*

    Whoever thought including the Drop Shield Armor Ability in Stockpile games should be slapped in the back of the head.

    Reach just feels so slow and campy compared to the previous games. Moving on, I really want to like Reach. I really do. It's Halo...sort of. I need to say something positive about it. Some of the assassination animations are rather satisfying. While it doesn't make up for some of the other issues I have with it, I do enjoy stabbing an unsuspecting opponent ...
