Halo: Reach First Customer!
GameSpot finds the first person in line for the upcoming game Halo: Reach five months away from launch!
Free clue for the upcoming Ornament Scavenger Contest. This April Fool's parody video features Homer Rabara and Aaron Sampson (aka AirDog80).
i wouldn't even wonder if this was real seeing all these fanboys here... i played halo 1 because it came with my xbox back then... played halo 2 for 2 hours and never again because it was the same boring crap... the story was a little boring but kinda ok but there are hundreds of games with better stories out there... and why is halo revolutionary? because it has vehicles or aliens? play UT then, it had all that before halo... it's nothing but an ordinary shooter which got pushed by the hype... if you want a good online shooter that is a little more different from the rest play metal gear online (at least there are some original game modes) or even aliens vs predator (havent played the last one yet but the first two were really something different), if you want a good story play a bioware game... and if you want a perfectly balanced gameplay play pong ;) halo=unreal/UT ripoff
if it was real they would probably call him a special customer and give the game to him for free when it comes out
@ SOUTHxSYDExKING I loved Halo 1 and 2 by far some of the most revolutionary games but Halo 3 just redid Halo 2 threw in some guns and forge. Forge is great but I love infection more than the other stuff plus the online came down to unload your clip while running at the guy and then try to melee him first which seemed totally idiotic and no strategy and really came to who had the bigger gun. Plus the I get really ticked off that Bungie continues to end the game in the same fashion by you driving out of a crumbling city, building or structure its kick ass the first 2 times but loses its luster after the 3rd time. I've seen Reach which looks better mainly because they're actually incorporating new things from other games to make it more complex than a run'n'gun like squad spawning in invasion, spartans can sprint, elites can roll/dodge. These are nice not original but nice and now you get class loadouts. It will come down for me the story which hasn't captured my intention since H2 and if they can get a smart ally AI squad going especially since its a squad game this time. Tired of getting killed more by marine AI then Brute or grunt AI and it happened in ODST a lot since marines would run me over with the warthog they were gonna pick me up in. To me it seems Bungie is going to run this dry which is sad because its like killing a beloved franchise which so many people loved and as sequels came out more and more people got annoyed with Bungie
@ares360 Lol. You seriously hate halo? Why? Its one of the greatest games. And i feel your pain about the little kids but you can always mute them. I do it all the time, especially on MW2. No biggie. Halo 3 was good. It delivered everything but a short campain because they spent alot of time on custom games and forge, which was a great success. I play more infection than multi. Halo ODST was made because people, fans, wanted Halo 4 or another halo game badly so bungie, since they care about their fans, decided to make an ad-on which ended up being a full more and more of an ad-on, which led to it being long enough for a disk. They copied the engine of halo 3 into Halo 3 ODST. Thats why the graphics look the same. They even said it. Halo Reach is new all the way. The story is going to be original. It dropped my jaw when i saw the new trailers. Just put this in your head bro, no game is perfect. Every game has pros and cons. A perfect game would be a game with graphics as real as real life, elements as real as real life, etc. What makes a good game tho is a game with good gameplay and an amazing story line. Thats what halo delivers, thats what gears delivers, thats what COD delivers.
@ares360 if your gonna try trash talking Bungie make sure you know how to spell the company's name and that you know what games they have made because Halo Wars isn't there's loser. Halo is probably thee biggest franchise in the gaming industry. so go back to playing pac man.
That's ridiculous. I wouldn't wait on line for ANY of the Halo games. Not even if they were giving them away. I haven't touched a Halo game since Halo 3's release week. Those games are so boring.
Well you have to think about it for a second, he's loitering so if it was for real they would of called the police on him. Then again it amazes me how game stores are actually the only ones that don't mind people camping out. It doesn't ruin their business. Why? Well because they know the campers are their customers.
Hahaha, it funny because no one would sit outside for 5 months for a VIDEO GAME! Ah ha ha! Oh Gamespot.
I checked it out, he really in this gamestop for 25 days and he will do it for another 5 months.Wait it's already April 6th??? I thought today is April Fools.Gamespot's staff pls delete my comment =.=
Why sit for 5 months and get fired for some game! It's amazing how far someone could go. GET A LIFE!
wow what is with the giant stick up u ppl's collective @$$es . This was funny. Now laugh, and get a life... seriously!
To everyone who keeps posting "Fake" : Really? Did you figure that out by yourself? Some of us just looked at the date.
IMO He tried to be Master Chief with his boss. And his boss fired him to show him who is the Master Boss. When he wandered outside the road to beg for money, Bill Gates, an altruistic donator gave him 50 cents rightaway and ask him why he has to do this, this man told Bill everything. Bill adviced him, "you just like me, I left school because of my passion, I will write a letter to my old company, good luck!". And now he works as a loser to advertise for Halo
Well putting aside the fact that this is probably fake, I can't help but wonder what kind of a loser this guy must be for wanting to do such a thing. It's also stupid, why not just preorder the game online then go spend the months in wait playing Halo 3 or something and fantasizing? That's still lame, but it's what a logical loser would do instead of this idiot's plan.
A no game in the history of man is that serious to sleep outside for 9 months for a video game he has no life and for some reason i think this is real
I was about to say, then i remembered the date, and how ridiculous this is. the thing is, there ARE people that fkn insanely obsessed... i'm staying in all day to avoid this april fools stuff. XD
