For the first time since I started working at Bungie, I really don’t want to write this update today. I really don’t even want to be here at all, parked at my desk, staring into this computer monitor. Fact is I’d rather be playing some Reach, continuing my methodically indulgent Legendary campaign play through. Even after spending time with several versions of the game while it was a work in progress, there’s still something extra sweet about plunging headlong into the finished product. Right now, plenty of our own personnel are doing just that. You seem to be enjoying yourselves, too. I’m seeing a lot of players remarking that Reach is now their new high point in the Halo series. And that is some high praise indeed.
