i actually had a lot fun playing the MP last night. I didn't dig into the story yet, I wanted to get most of the MP achievements out of the way first. I think the new REQ system and new Warzone is really cool, its pretty fun.
I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.

Played first chapter on Legendary solo, wasn't super bad... Got all tingly when "Halo" music kicked in... Will delve into the Multiplayer to get the achievements at least...

I voted in a poll! That's weird.

We probably won't get it for a while. My son and I just started a Co-Op playthrough of MCC. Once we do that (with or without ODST, not sure, we will probably look to get Halo 5.

I'm not enjoying it, thanks to Best Buy not having enough Limited Editions to fulfill all their pre-orders.

I have yet for an in-store or online pre-order/special-order to not be exactly where it needs to be, when it needs to be. I've even gone in to a store one person told me did not have their pre-order, because the store ran out, but, the store had mine.

Both Best Buy and Gamestop in my experience waste more of my time trying to upsell me stuff I don't want or need.

When I was buying my appliances and then my television, I went to the same store for everything. Chatted with the store manager every time. Explained to her what I was doing, and the goal I was working towards, and if she had anyone in particular she wanted me to work with. Well, that lead to some easier access, better pricing, flexible checkouts, double discounts...

Guy in front of me is pissing vinegar, and got told no to everything. I said please, and got a lot of yeses.

Still nothing, I'm blaming 343 more than I am blaming Best Buy at the moment, but that is to be determined yet. When I went to pick up my game, I didn't have time to talk to the manager, but will do so today.

So I picked up my LE copy yesterday, no fuss. There was even a hand written note saying to hold for me on the package. I'm shifting my blame to UPS and remains of Typhoon Patricia that hit Texas last weekend now. Stick Out Tonguearanoid:
Hated it the first day I played it, the campaing was not what I expected it to be after the first three levels. Ended up hopping on multiplater day 2 and havent stopped playing besides the occasional race in Forza. Definitely dont see myself revisting the campaign after I do all the achievements, but I can see multiplayer taking up a lot of my gaming time.
