Okay this is yet another necrobump but I must profess my undying love for this game. It was the first big-budget production I ever got to play seriously (I game from a farming background where no one owned computers) and this game is a huge part of my teenage years. It carried me through high school, helped me meet awesome people and feel happy whenever school life had ground me down.
It's an utter shame I don't have xbox live anymore and I've mostly lost control of my xbox account, and worse still I lost the great friends I made playing this game.
There isn't much I wouldn't give to get back in contact with those guys and have microsoft officially port Halo reach to PC. At the moment all I can do is pray the talented modding community will do the work for me.
