    So for people who have firefight Is there any noticeable height difference between the characters? Because it's petty as hell, but if there is it's going to limit my character choice.

    Leitner, we all know that I should be the tallest character, after all, it's set in the future.

    Huh. Just a warning. As soon as the game starts you don't get an objective. In order to advance and get the location for the first clue, you need to kill all the patrols in the area it seems.

    Don't spend half an hour stealthing around and wondering what the hell you need to do like I did.

    Oh, and all the weapons seem balanced, or appropiatly tiered in terms of ammo etc. The only exception is the Spiker, with which compensation for lack of recoil is utterly piss poor damage. And keep in mind Silenced Weapons arn't actually silenced. Enermies know where you are from the first shot.

    How can people be irritated by the lack of Master Chief? It's called ODST. Folks may as well get irritated that Spider-man 2 didn't have enough Iron Man. I like the MC character well enough, but I also enjoy the Halo fiction. The MC is basically a one-man slaughterhouse on legs so there isn't much of a need for dialogue from him. Having squad-based setting like ODST allows for us to see the Halo universe from the eyes of a grunt who actually has relationships with people besides the top 10 VIPs in the galaxy.

    Argh, I hate silenced weapons that aren't actually silenced. Don't call them "silenced" if enemies react like there's a giant glowing arrow over your head as soon as you start shooting.

    I'm not gonna get around to TRU till tomorrow night around 8, hopefully they'll still have the figures in stock to give away. My friend and I played Halo 3 last night for the first time in a good while, ran through the campaign on legendary for probably the 10th time. I'm hoping ODST has that kind of re-playability.

    I'm more astonished to find out that people live in Nebraska. I've been there and I still don't believe it.

    I've driven through it and I could swear I was there for days, yet less than half a day passed in the outside world. To me and my brother, it's a curse word in the classical "call upon evil things" fashion.

    the flyer said it was a $12 value so that's one of the full size dealies right? It looked like a nice figure in the picture.

    I'm just interested in ODST. Not a HUGE halo fan, but I'd love to play the ODST campaign and some fire fight.

    My deal is, I have credit/points on my xbox, but no money. That's why I was wondering.

    It's not like we hid it on page fifty-doorknobs or something, it's on the first page! This is the usual system for information in a thread

    I realize it wasn't hidden away. And, yes, it would have been simple to just scroll down on the first page. I was mostly just annoyed that he was a prick about it instead of just saying, "It's on the first page". No reason to act that way towards people who asking a simple question.

    I do apologize for my ignorance, though. I just want to find some cool folks to play with and most everyone on the PA forums seems worth playing with.

    I wouldn't have been so snippy if you hadn't started your questions off with flat out laziness.

    edit: had you said you're at work and constrained for time, then thats fine, I used to be in a similar situation.

    To be fair it is set up pretty stupid. I think you have to go into purchase (with real money) and then hit Y on the purchase screen to see it in points and use what you already have on your account.

    Playing it solo is actually quite fun. The mobs are aggressive enough to keep you on your toes, unlike GoW.
