But, today isn’t a sad day; rather it is a time for the gamers to rejoice, as they have been waiting patiently, ever since the game was unveiled at E3 in 2009, for this day to arrive. Tonight many fanatics will pop Halo “Reach” into their consoles, order a few greasy Pizzas, and pull an all nighter killing evil alien invaders, only to repeat this process for many weeks to come. Are you one of the fanatics I’m speaking of? I thought so!
