Halo: Reach Multiplayer Beta Starts 5/3

It's that time of every-other-year again, and we're on the doorstep of another Halo multiplayer beta. This time around it's for the final Bungie-developed game in the franchise, Halo: Reach, and will run May 3-19. If you own a copy of Halo 3: ODST, you can get in for free, or you can troll around gaming sites looking for beta key giveaways. Barring any golden tickets appearing in my inbox, I think I'm going to run out and grab ODST just for this purpose. When the Halo 3 beta came around 2 years ago I logged a fairly decent amount of play, and it was probably the most fun I had with the multiplayer for that game. Maybe it was just the allure of exclusivity, or what seemed at the time like a serious lack of dickheads, but whatever the case it was a blast.
