After playing a game of it, and thinking of the possibilties this implies for future additions to Reach's game repitoire, I have to say I like Reach about 15% more and I already liked it quite a bit. What's everyone else's opinion? And what's everyone think about Action Sack too?

Okay, we have a problem here that's COMPLETELY irrelevant to the topic at hand. For some reason, the word SUCKS is randomly placed in comments, topics and titles. I've checked, and apparently no admins are doing this. Odd glitch?

It's probably a word filter.

Yeah. It's not in matchmaking or anything, but there's a Bungie-made Chess Game Variant in Reach's File Browser and It works. Here's a link:

I still don't completely understand how to move players fully. Jamie, this is definitely all we're going to be doing on XBL. XD

On the topic of new things, I love Classic Slayer. It's a shame that some of Reach's core mechanic problems like overpowered grenades, odd melee system, sword block and many others get in the way of causing the playlist to really shine. Oh well, it least this will tide me over until a Title Update is released by 343i.

Yeah, I noticed a whole shit load of errors and issues. Sometimes, checks do not register, and the King can be destroyed. You cannot castle. You cannot en passant (Yes Jamie, I was doing it right. STFU), and many other tedious issues.

It was probably made just for that enraging video pre-launch and added as an unfinished easter egg. A lot of times it will say check for no reason.

Most likely. You'd think Bungie would have more dignity...

Bungie hasn't any now.

Oh, and Owen says post on RP.

I thought it was kindof boring. I like real chess better.

This. Way too clunky for me. Still it's interesting to see what Bungie could do with their game that normally would not have been done.
