Can't a brother just look at some SPACE?

Shame about the lock up there, i was hopin they'd end it with Jeff leaping out into that massive space battle.  That woulda been a perfect end to the QL!

Been distracted by a few other games lately, but I can't wait to jump back into Reach with these.

Posted by EvilTwin

The lack of "Bam there it is!" jokes at the very end disappoint me greatly.

"XBOX, Ed Fries" was how to end this QL.

Posted by Skald

I do like space.

So funny when Jeff said "man I really wish these guys weren't talking" As someone who plugs in my headset and sets it on the floor or talks in party chat to not hear annoying ass halo players, I understand.

@Jeff The improved voice quality codec only applies to party chat and the newest games. Any game released before the dashboard update and even some that haven't come out yet will still use the old codec.

Another milk for Halo. Really? 
After all the content games like MAG, Team Fortress 2, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 have been adding. 
 
THIS is what you direct your attention to. 
 
This site's bias is quickly becoming evident.

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE QUICK LOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are so right.  There is an obvious bias toward games that a majority of people actually care about.  How dare they?  I, for one, am disgusted.

Inorite. Because no one plays Team Fortress 2 or MAG anymore. 
That's why they keep releasing content for people who don't exist. 
 
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Vietnam? Who would ever think of buying that? 
Oh wait.. most of the people on my friends list.

Shut UUUUUUUUUPPPPPP......
No seriously, @EgoCheck616 isn't far from wrong.   I think Game-Reviewers in general across the board are becoming more jaded.  Also BFBC2 ain't put out squat that was new till today.

@EgoCheck616:

It's pretty simple, dude. TF2 is insurmountable if you haven't been digging it for a good while now, so the only way I see a Quick Look of that happening is to get some of the non-GB folk in the office organized to play some for camera. That seems like a hassle.

As for MAG, the only argument have is that Halo is much better at being in your face about it. Like it or not, it's consistently one of the top played games on not only Giant Bomb, but on Xbox Live. So unless you're currently playing MAG, you don't hear or see too much about the game, but Halo is always in the limelight.

Halo is the perfect choice for these DLC quick looks because you have consistent numbers to prove that people still care about the game. Black Ops will get the same treatment. I've never played MAG, but if you had asked me for my inexperienced opinion 20 minutes ago, I would have said that nobody cared about the game anymore. That would be a snap blanket judgment on something I know nothing about, and we shouldn't have those, should we?

@EgoCheck616: In case you have not noticed, that Vietnam pack isn't out yet so calm down before making these idiotic claims. And yeah, also if you have not noticed, Halo is a little bit bigger than fucking MAG.  
 
Also, Giant Bomb was given codes for the Halo: Reach map pack. I don't think Sony is handing out any MAG codes to press. 
Posted by EgoCheck616
@animathias: But doesn't stuff like this just reinforce that blanketed opinion? 
How can we expect people to be informed about actually good games when all they're providing us with is these silly little Halo quick looks? 
 
ArmA II has some rather large numbers when you look at the servers. 
Haven't heard a single bit of it talked about on GiantBomb. 
 
It just seems like this whole site has become extremely saturated with the typical "McDonalds is good enough because I'm hungry" attitude. Instead of actually taking the effort to find something of higher quality.  
 
But I guess that's just how the North American market works these days. 
 
Hopefully GiantBomb becomes large enough to begin running a second site. One that actually gives a shit about the games that are worth playing, instead of the "Press X to Spam" mess that floods the market.

As much as I love TF2, this map pack costs the same as 2 hats. 
 
Figure that shit out.
Edited by Rox360

The first game is still my favorite Halo game! It may not be as good as Reach, but it's unique enough to still stand out. And some of the sandbox stuff in that game has still barely been surpassed. Not sure how I'd feel about a remake... part of what I like about Halo is actually the visuals. It still looks good. Good in an "old game" kinda way, but it's a very likable style. But I guess, if it means more non-Halo CE fans got back to playing it, maybe people can see why I love it so much. Hmm...
 
Nice ending to a quick look.

It isn't a matter of size. It is a matter of quality, sir.  
We don't need 34098324238 links to a game that should have been shot dead after the first sequel. 
 
Also, there have been plenty of addons to BF:BC2 up until the Vietnam pack.  
Some people question their quality, however that is another discussion.

Jeff should try shooting a little slower

I was busting up when they were talking about getting the S rank. Brad you're not coming back to reach, be realistic. I beat it on legendary alone, but it was the week I got laid off so I had some free time let's say. The maps look good. The only thing buggin me is I've moved on to Black Ops and kinda don't want to go back. Now, my S rank is boned. There should be a Shelf Style S rank and a Long Haul S rank.

Hats don't alter the gameplay experience. 
Maps do.

I've had too many matches ruined by people bitching about exclusive accessories to know this is false. 
 
And let's not forget the $50 Polycount pack.
Posted by fillmoejoe

I don't know if this is enough to get me back into Reach, I leaning more towards the Vietnam Bad Company 2 expansion.

Again, the $50 polycount pack is completely optional. 
And none of the exclusive accessories can be considered any sort of game-altering change.  
 
If you play with people who get frustrated over a few items then you're obviously on the wrong server.

I haven't touched Halo Reach since I finished the campaign and that was weeks ago. This looks alright but eh I'll pass

I didn't realize the Noble map pack was required for play.

Rocket Race is the shit! I was so annoyed when they took it out of Halo 3 :P

I think  you may be getting a bit too excited about this. Its not as if halo coverage dominates the site. And the codes are a real big deal here. I bet they didn't get codes for any of the BF:BC2 stuff, so don't really have any motivation to cover them, since they aren't still playing that game (like they weren't still actively playing this one).
 
Also, I am not a huge fan of halo, but shot dead after its first sequel? Those games certainly weren't bad, I think  you are being unreasonable.
