|It's good to be back with the team.|
So two things have come out of me rejoining the Halo world. 1) It is crazy to me how much I really do love these games and their story. It is such a good, enriching, fully developed world.. And I still skip cut scenes. Isn't that awful!? I tell myself that I'll go back and watch them in the video room, or when I play the campaign alone and have more time... But honestly I'll probably never get around to it. I'm notoriously bad about being patient through cut scenes. So then I'm missing out on the story line and I'm not 100% sure where Reach fits in to the canon...and that makes my nerd-self sad.
2) I am completely torn on going back to multi-player online. I am playing the campaign multi-player with my hubby and brother-in-law, but what I'm really talking about here is getting on, joining a lobby full of strangers, and becoming their target. I have a longing to rejoin that community. I used to love it so much. Goodness knows there's nothing like pwning n00bs late into the night... but the problem now is that I am the n00b. I can not even remember the last time I played Halo 3 online. I can't even imagine trying to wrap my brain around learning new maps on Reach and being any kind of competition yet.
That's the problem with these FPS. There is a learning curve, and you miss it quick. I always think Debbie is just a little crazy when she talks about playing new CoD iterations for the first week so that she's not behind, but it is so true. Imagine my dismay at wanting to join a game a year after its release. Siiiigh. I guess I'll just have to take the leap eventually. You know I want those achievements. ;-)
