I was planning on avoiding Halo as much as possible because I kinda wanted this to feel like a new launch ... not only of Reach, but of the MCC. Play through all the campaigns remastered again, get a fresh start on the mulitplayer, see what's up with the new UI ... just kinda start over with the game. I figured a lengthy dry-spell would make it seem more exciting to jump back into. But I can't break a habit that easily; I've totally still been playing Halo. Just not as much.
This has also given me an opportunity to take care of some unfinished business in other video games I've neglected. But now I feel like I'm neglecting Halo and I don't like it. So ... the sooner the flighting starts, the sooner I can shed my guilt. lol
