“I have drunken deep of joy, And I will taste no other wine tonight.”
A Much Better Interlude
So recently I reminisced about Halo Reach for the Xbox 360. Well apparently I forgot that the Master Chief Collection, a collection of most of the games in the Halo franchise, was releasing soon on the PC. The first instalment of which is Halo Reach.
After the wave of nostalgia that writing that piece gave me it was fantastic to jump back to a simpler time and kick some ass in multiplayer. That is when I rediscovered one of my favourite ways to kill an enemy in all of video games. The sticky grenade.
For those of you who don’t know, a sticky grenade is pretty much what it sounds like. It’s a grenade that once thrown it will stick to an enemy upon contact, pretty much guaranteeing a kill. Below is a video of these things in action.
If you haven’t experienced the satisfaction of getting a kill like this then I genuinely feel sorry for you. There is a slight delay before the grenade explodes and there is a happiness that you get from watching them get hit by that glowing blue ball. They stop for a second, accepting their fate and then BANG.
Every single time, without fail, I get a kill with one of these things there is a little voice in my head that gives them a voice that simply says “ah… fuck” before they explode.
Maybe I’ll right some more about the Master Chief Collection as it comes out. They are a great series of games after all. But until then, thanks for reading and I’ll see you all next time. Until then, remember to take care of yourselves. Peace.
Another great sticky grenade compilation. I could watch these all day.
