And The Madness That Ensues

All you need to survive a real nuclear holocaust, except batteries.

Ever since I was a small child, I enjoyed collecting things.

Can I explain it? Not really. There’s just something about having valuable items, or things from the past, that makes me smile. It’s like keeping the past with me.

It all began with the Pokémon craze as a kid. One of the most peculiar things, now that I reminisce over it, was the whole card game.

Maybe three card battles were done by me in my entire life. I simply collected them, and didn’t care to battle (because that’s what the games were for!).

Normals, rares, semi-rares, holographic ones, holographic legendary cards, and even more rare: holographic foreign legendaries! It was a collector’s madness.

What makes us collect so much . . . ?

Update: • Our ‘huge’ multi-faceted Halo Reach Review.

Update: • Halo Reach Release Article Bungie’s Last Big Stand.

Updated: New Halo Reach and Halo Collectable article just published, feel free to pass it around, covers all Halo consoles and CE-LE’s since the game was released on the 1st-gen Xbox.

News just to hand shows that the new Legendary Halo Reach Limited Edition Noble One Team Statue will drop on your desks at a cool 5kgs, not including the huge tin box, the huge Diary, Cloth Badge, Security card Artefact bag and other gear.

There are two items available outside the standard edition of course.

The Halo Reach Limited Edition and the Halo Reach Legendary Edition (see left image). You’ll see what each contains below.

This method worked well with previous Halo editions, with many clambering for the ultimate one, the Legendary Halo 3 edition, of which I of course have.
