How Halo: Reach should have ended.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I haven't updated in ages, and I don't expect to upload any panorama's any time soon. Reach has some amazing sights, but most of them are covered in fog. I also don't have the time to spend hours making pretty pictures right now. However, because this is the new year, I have something else for you.

I've been vocal with my criticism for Reach's final cutscene. Bungie had so much potential, but squandered it by having Jen Taylor breathe her lines, having no time for contemplation, fading to white way too soon, and not utilizing the background music at all.

So I said to myself: "I can do it better." And I think I have. It's not perfect, but it comes pretty close, in my opinion. Let me know what you think.

I urge you to watch this in HD. Let me know what you think. If you can't spot any differences, go and watch the original again.

Close to perfection :) what software did you use for editing? Movie maker is just terrible.

Ironically, I used Movie Maker and Audacity for this. It was a quick and dirty job, to be sure. :p
