Halo Reach: Coxxorzed


By Coxxorz - Posted on 06 September 2010


Hello, this is your furry pal Grover. Wait– that's not right.

This is your monochromatic pal Coxxorz, with another episode of Bargain Corner, where we put the F back in... frugal.

Many of you have been asking: "Coxxorz, when are you going to post some preorder deals on the new Halo coming out in September?" Well, maybe not many of you. Okay, nobody has actually asked about Halo. But I feel an overwhelming sense of... revulsion? No, responsibility. That's the word I'm looking for. Although with you guys they do both feel kinda the same.

Anyway, many of you look to your trusty albino friend for deals and advice, and I'm not one to disappoint! (Swag: see my Deal of the Day for your controller request, and I'll talk to you later about that problem with the ladies).

So in an effort to summarize what retailers are offering in terms of deals and goodies for the release of Bungie's latest (and hopefully last) Halo installment, here's the story in a nutshell: not much. It should be self-evident by now that Halo is Microsoft's cash cow that ate the golden goose under the money tree. It will sell like hotcakes, incentives or not. No $40 Wal-Mart specials here. But there are always a couple ways to maximize your spending, and this is no exception.

Without further ado, here is the deal matrix, now in glorious html 1.0 Table-Vision!™

Gonna have to wait to see if it will be worth it.

And what problem with the ladies do you need to talk to me about?

In a related note, HOPA was telling me how she wanted to play Halo Reach. Too bad it's not Coxxorzed enough for me :(

Q-Bert's picture

It's HPOA...

And you have access to a HPOA ?

(And you admit it here ?)

Coxxorz's picture

The girl herself says- er... writes it on the very page you link to.

Besides, just try pronouncing "HPOA".
