Is there a Giant Bomb group of some sort for this game?

#1 Posted by Shadow (5108 posts) -

I love Reach and have friends playing the game online at the same time as me every now and then.  Most of the time though, it's just me going up against, and teaming up with, random people and that gets old pretty fast.  So is there a group of people from this site that I don't know about who regularly play Reach online?  If so, I'd love to join or if there's not and you play the game on at least a near-daily basis, feel free to hit me up with a friend request (GT = your fat uncle).  I could use some friendly people to break up the monotony of those who either don't have mics, or have installed unidentified software which translates their speech to some form of unintelligible binary replacing '0' and '1' with 'noob' and 'fuck'.  I realize there's a thread for this already, but it's totally dead, filled almost entirely with people who don't play the game anymore,  and so over-crowded that it's impossible to fit even half of them on a single friends list.  It doesn't seem to me that there is an active GB community for this game, but just in case I'm wrong about that, I thought I might as well check.

I'm in a super Halo mood atm. I have both map packs. I'm down to play almost everyday. Feel free to add me. GT: hairybeast87

I've been playing Reach a bit lately. I have both map packs, but I'm not usually particularly good at the game. I'm not bad, either, it depends on the gametype. Anyway, I'm Shoeblazer on XBL. I don't do random friend requests, so send me a message that says "GB" in it so I know where you came from.

EDIT: Link to my profile on, for ease.

Yep, I play Reach every day. I mostly go for the challenges and then get off, but if I have others to play with I would probably play longer.

Hey guys, just played with HairyMike87 (on Giant Bomb, not XBL) and had a great time. Played 9 games with him and some other duders who I knew previously. Just wanted to report that this thread resulted in a positive and fun experience.

I'm not sure if it's a go this Friday or not but I know the last couple Fridays we have had some giant bomb reach going. Last Friday was awesome by the way. I hope they do it again this week.

Yeah, anyone interested in playing with other people from the site should check this thread. We had a game night not too long ago and it was a smashing success (there was like, 12 of us).

I know there is another thread, but since I'd rather not get lost in the shuffle, my GT: Sourceguru 
I'm a bit of a Reach addict.

Even this thread is a week old, so I don't know if I'll get much of a response, but I would really love to play Reach as a team.  Right now I play a lot, but mostly with randoms and so there is no communication.  I'll send FR to some people on the list feel free to shoot some to me.  I play most nights 10-midnight eastern time.  I'd prefer to win but really only play to have fun.

i figured out why there isn't a community group thing for this game. it's because there are so many assholes who play halo and since theyre assholes, they have to be assholes to someone, so they are assholes to one another.
