This is great: it makes Reach so much more real to see stuff like this about the cities the Spartans are fighting through. Reminds me of the moa burger fast food ads. The AI is adorable. It's interesting to think of there being a space tourism industry in the Halo universe, which always seems to be under attack, but then I remember that Reach was the first push by the Covenant.
Actually I believe Reach was part of the last push. The Covenant actually thought Reach was our homeworld, before they stumbled upon Earth in Halo 2.
But yeah, I think even despite the war going on, especially one that lasted for nearly 30 years, some semblance of normal life would have to continue in the background to keep the infrastructure alive and the war effort supported.
I like that little nod to the pages of the comic here with the "UNSC causes roadrage as highway is shutdown for training." It's just those little tidbits that really make these things a fun little read.
