The new cinematic trailer for Halo: Reach is out, showing a little of the story taking place in 2552, making it a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved (2001). As far as I can tell, this game doesn’t have Master Chief in it, perhaps because he was too busy kicking out the jams.
Halo: Reach releases on Xbox 360 September 14th everywhere but Japan. They’ll have to wait an extra day before REACHING *bike horn* for this. Speaking of “Reaching”, this segue was totally forced, and I don’t think they can call this “the most anticipated game of the year” when there’s stuff like Starcraft II and Grand Theft Abstinence out this year. OH NO HE DIDN’T. *sunglasses* Deal with it.
