I managed to get a hold of UK Halo player Lethal, who was part of the VwS line up which came second at Gamescom in Germnay. He talks to us about what Halo 2 Anniversary plays like and how it comapres to the orginal version. I also asked him some of the community questions, featuring questions from Beyond, Haloforum.eu and SSRCG. And yes, I ask him who is better, UK Lethal or USA Lethal. Enjoy!
Im aware of my mic issue, it is something I need to replace as I think it is just on its way out.
