My Chris Butcher Airport Interview!

1 April 2010

Wow. Just wow. 

I was at Wellington Airport this week for work when I ran into Chris Butcher. He’s New Zealand’s gift to the Halo Universe. A genius at networking code or some thing, Chris was back in NZ for a quick holiday with his family before the final Halo Reach crunch began.

I approached him in my work suit, said hello and he thought I was I some kind of airport official. Confusion resolved, I asked him for an autograph and a lil surprised, he obliged.

I asked him about how Reach was going and he told me a few things which are a bit of a news scoop to be honest!
  • If you get all the Reach Game Achievement Points, instead of a Katana sword, you get a flaming head like Bungie employees had in Halo 3 matchmaking.
  • Recon will be available from the get go if you unlocked it in Halo 3.
  • Campaign wise, there will be a level which has a Flood incident that needs containment. This really surprised me as hereto, there has been no mention of the Flood being on Reach.
I wondered if Chris was pulling my leg a bit so I asked him if Mr Chief 117 would be in the game and he said, there are actually 7 members of Team Noble….

Then he found a cabbie with his name on a placard and left me with a piece of paper signed, See Ya Round, Sucker!

Wow, is this info legit? If it is, you are the first 2 know. Well, it sounds good to me. But what he said about master chief confuses me. Can you elaborate more, or is that all he said?

This info has to be totally legit bro! You can't make stuff like this up!

The way I see I, there when he says 7 members of team Noble he means that the Chief joins the the campaign somehow. Which is awesome!

Oh yeah, you don't even know the half of it.

I have access to some top secret information, from which I cannot divulge the source, but here is how the rest of the story goes:
After all you just said, the Reapers come and eat the native Salarians on the planet Reach who have lived underground for thousands of years and have just surfaced to make war on the Flood, the Human Race, the Covenant, and anything else in it's way.

UBER SPOILER: The salarians almost win but the Reapers save the day just before getting blown up by a boy in green with a golden triangle on his left hand. The debris impacts so hard onto the surface that the reapers' cores blow up and make the planet appear to be "glassed".

Sorry if that was too much information, but I just had to share it.
