Halo: Reach: "Solo Legendary"
Posted: Tuesday September 28th, 2010 by

The description for Halo: Reach's 150 point "A Monument To All Your Sins" achievement is simple: "Completed every mission in Halo: Reach alone, on Legendary". Translated into Woody Gaming Speak that means "Woody will never complete this achievement". When Stormhaven presented the idea she recommended that Ted be the one struggling and I went along. But I've always thought of Ted as my counterpoint. Where I happily accept my limitations, reveling in casual gameplay, Ted is hardcore. He's that jackass that would make a post on a forum somewhere talking about how easy Legendary Solo is.

So maybe in this instance Ted is sick and hopped up on drugs or something. I know my already limited gaming skill suffers under those conditions. But all of this belies the actual point: even if you're a hardcore gamer that likes waving his gaming wang around, playing Halo: Reach solo on Legendary is tough.

The is one other thing to consider though. The comic was written by Stormhaven. Of course she's going to represent Reach solo on Legendary as extremely challenging; she's a penguin. I can't imagine how difficult it is to hold a 360 controller and manipulate its umpteen buttons when you don't have opposable thumbs.
