If you have been watching any sort of prime time TV the last few weeks I’m sure you’ve seen the commercial for Halo: Reach that has a somber song and a Spartan carrying a bomb. Every time I see it I get teary eyed. How can there not be a Halo movie yet? There’s such a strong emotional bond that gamers have with the Halo franchise, and seeing it in live action just makes me want more.
I know I’m beating this subject like a dead horse, but just watch for yourself. Gamers may have more of a reaction to it because we’ve seen Halo evolve into what it is now, but it’s still an awesome 2.5 minute mini-movie. It gets me pumped and sad at the same time. Poor little Reach based Spartans. Yes, I do menstruate! You’ve been getting emotional over videogames too, don’t lie…
