This is a tough question! I still haven’t decided exactly how I’m going to approach it.
I’m definitely going to my local midnight release to pick up the Legendary Edition and trade my 360 Elite in for the -Yoink!- new Reach 360. The unboxing alone will be a treat that I will savor and enjoy experiencing. After the anticipation builds beyond capacity, I’m sure I’ll scramble to get everything hooked up and put the last disk that my new 360 will see for a very very long time.
There are so many enticing options on Bungie’s last Halo palette that I can’t decide which to taste first. Traditionally, I’ve always run through campaign solo. I’ve loved to unlock the mysteries of the storyline without spoil or interruption from friends. I couldn’t imagine being at a crucial part of the game and have someone else ruin the experience by exploring too far ahead or shouting out a surprise without experiencing it myself first-hand. Perhaps if I can find a few friends that will abide by a set of rules (stay together, keep quiet during cut-scenes, etc), I may try having my first campaign run as co-op. I know going through campaign, one way or the other, will be toward the top of the list though; I don’t want anyone to ruin the story.
But all of the other gametypes seem like so much fun that I will definitely have to spend a few minutes checking them all out before I crash after the first night; exploring Forge World and the rest of the new maps, testing out the new Firefight options, running through the matchmaking netcode upgrade, getting my own hands on Theater mode, etc, etc… the list is quite long!
There is no doubt in my mind that the seemingly unlimited options of Reach will entertain me for years to come!
