    Yo bitches, do Dutch and Romeo be towering?

    Also, has anything been revealed about that ODST avatar suit we saw pics of a couple months back?

    I'm guessing look for it later on in the day on the 22nd, any time this week really

    We can always hope it's some super secret in game unlock, right? :winky:

    Anybody who has this now, how many people can play offline firefight? I didn't see it on the first page so if it there, sorry I sucked at reading.
    Spoiler:
    2 players per console... you could do a system link with 4 total... :?

    Sad times. Console link is for chumps and people with way more money than I have. At least I can invite one buddy over to wreak havoc with me.

    Stupid cheap friends with their families to provide for and monetary responsibility. *grumble grumble*

    Edit: And with 4 players they go for almost 4 hours:

    I haven't looked into any of the characters. If you asked me to name them I could only give you Rookie, Dutch and apparently Buck which was JUST mentioned. I'm not gonna choose a favourite til I play.

    Hmm, methinks bungie either hyped up the difficulty too much or something sinister on the frenchy side

    Mickey looks super weird without his helmet. Like, he just looks like your standard chav.

    I'm not sure how I unlocked the lack of helmets in Firefight, but I think it's

    They might be playing on Lost Platoon. The vehicles probably give you a great advantage there.

    So I have done something unique with this Halo sequel.

    Unlike Halo 2 and Halo 3, I didn't glean every single piece of information about the games before they released, participate in any viral marketing, and read the novels they released in the interim hoping that there was some glimmer of an insight into the game that I could hold over others before release.

    I know almost nothing about this game. I know it's about Helljumpers, and it takes place right after Regret takes off into Slipspace and annihilates New Mombasa. I know the Pistol is back. That's about it.

    The past two releases I have been massively disappointed in Halo. In Halo 2, I looked forward to the moon levels they promised, and the fights on Earth (which, from what I've seen in the original teasers, looks to be what they're promising here too). In Halo 3, I had insanely high hopes for the story to come together in a coherent and ultimately satisfying way.

    My expectations for Halo 1 were nil. I loved it. My expectations for Halo 2 and Halo 3 were extraordinarily. I hated them. Sure, you could attribute Bungie's loss of insight as the reason these games didn't live up to all they could be in my mind, but I think at least part of the reason I was disappointed has something to do with the Peter Molyneux effect. I got excited about features they just couldn't deliver on.

    So I have no expectations for Halo: ODST. I am going to buy it, play it, and enjoy it for what it is. Here is hoping it can capture some of the magic I felt when I first played Halo 1 eight years ago. Hope to see some of you guys online, too!

    You should totally come by the library before we close at 8.

    Dammit! ODST is so far the only other game I'm doing a midnight release for. The previous one was Halo 2. And I was stationed in Guam so I was literally one of the first people in the world to play it.
    Hell, my old clan creation date was a day before release.

    You and I are going to get along great.

    Anyways, I am really hoping I get the Johnson code, our Game Stop was hesitant to say how many they got in.

    Did you have to preorder the special version or the regular one? Either way, I am probably out of luck as I can't pick up at midnight.

    I saw what appeared to be 7.34 trillion Johnson codes in a big stack at my Gamestop. I might carpet my house with them someday.

    I hope this ends up happening at ours, the employee who took my pre-order was like "Well.. You might want to get here early, we aren't sure we'll have enough for all of our pre-order customers."

    On the other hand, didn't all those GoW2 Golden Lancer codes get snapped up like whoa. Ended up going for like twenty quid a piece.
