Instead of spamming this board with Halo stuff, I'll just put it all in this thread.

Halo Graphics Evolution

From Halo: CE to the upcoming Halo: Reach, graphics have come a long way.

Point of Impact

An article that talks about three of the weapons (Assualt Rifle, DMR, and Needlier Rifle).  For the weapon's buffs....

How armor customization will be handled

http://g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/703448/Bungie-Reveals-Halo-Reachs-All-Encompassing-Player-Investment-System.html

Yay...no more having to do stupid achievements just to get specific armor pieces.  Though it worries me that they were talking about Spartans solely...not the Sangheili Models...

I never imagined the Sangheili that fashionable (despite their pretty colors that allegedly represent rank) :P

But seriously though, most of the Halo fanboys are obsessed with the Master Chief, so naturally Bungie comforted them by going Spartan Spartan Spartan...with Samurai costumes (brutal honesty: that karate armor in H3 is really lame).  I figure that most of the players don't really care for the Sangheili that much, it's all about shooting aliens.  Ourselves, however, are the weirdos ;)

Just under 10% of MP players use the Sangheili model...Which is about the same amount of female gamers playing Halo period. 

Coincidence? ;)

Bungie weekly update...lots of Reach goodness.

Armor Abilities, Weapons and Elites...Oh my....

Sounds like the Sangheili are going to be down right nasty in multiplayer....

IGN: The character progression stuff we've seen is all Spartan-based. Is there a way to carry that over into your Elite character as well?

CC: The Elite's going to have armor sets. So he's not going to be tweakable like the Spartan where there's going to be helmets and everything else. There will be armor sets you can unlock for the Elite.

IGN: So it doesn't make it like, I spent all this time upgrading my Spartan and now I'm in an Elites-vs.-Spartans match and I'm stuck with this cookie-cutter character.

CC: Yeah. Your emblem, your color and everything else will be there. And actually, Spartans vs. Elites only happens in Invasion and Network Test 1 [Generator Defense]. So your standard, traditional multiplayer, like Slayer and stuff on Swordbase and Powerhouse will all be Spartan-on-Spartan.

Please tell me that is just for the beta...And that we can chose a Sangheili for the other game types once released......
