ah, i can't wait for reach.
if it hits my expectations, it'll show humanity doing what they never showed it doing; losing horribly.
and if all of noble/spartans/humanity is wiped out, it'll be a better ending, because spartans are hooligans in my opinion.
The loss at Reach was a win within itself: all those days, hours, even minutes, were days, hours, and minutes that the Covies WEREN'T using to attack Earth. The Spartans- and humanity itself- sacrificed a lot to hold them off, even for that tiny amount of time...
