Halo: Reach Ending Unofficially Spoiled

With Halo: Reach's leak comes the inevitable wave of 'ending' videos with spoilers, and these (sadly) appear to be bona fide

If you don't want to know how Halo: Reach ends, better unplug your internet box, pronto, because pirates are uploading the game's finale.

Type 'halo reach ending' into YouTube's search box and up pop a couple videos the YouTube copyright police have yet to banish. One bills itself as "the highest quality REAL ending" to the game. Another claims to be from a live stream. Both were uploaded today, August 23.

I've had a peek at them myself, and -- for reasons I can't disclose without spoiling the ending -- I can say they're the real deal.

What motivates some to broadcast unethical behavior is anyone's guess. Claims to "first"? Sure. And status. And this.

A group of hackers recently purloined a press review copy of the game from Microsoft's Xbox Live Marketplace servers, bragged they'd done so but wouldn't release it to file sharing sites, then (apparently) went ahead and released it anyway.

You know the drill -- forewarned is forearmed. Watch where you surf (or pull from). Self-styled story saboteurs are probably annotating these videos and preparing to pounce on Facebook pages, blogs, Twitter feeds, and message boards even now.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
