    I admit I don't have anything in the halo thread about ODST, but there is an existing Halo thread.

    In fact, I'll probably just correct that this afternoon.

    It saddens me that 1000 gamerpoints is worthy of your bullet point list. AND that it apparently deserves a smiley face.

    I am very excited about this game though. I look forward to seeing the halo universe through the eyes of someone who isn't a super soldier.

    Rainbow Six damage styles only work if it's a two way street.

    Does that mean a single headshot will take down a brute now?

    Im excited also, but 1k gamerscore is better than none right? Also, I forgot to mention that there might be secrets in this game.... like the Halo 3 skull collection.

    No, OP is just an idiot. The game has been done for quite some time, and the Mythic maps even longer than that. Its just that Microsoft wants something to sell this holiday season.

    All the multiplayer maps that will come with ODST have been done since later '08. Bungie has said this themselves, and some of the variants for the current part of Mythic we have have a timestamp of creation of later '08 (nov/oct).

    ODST is in crunch mode right now. The game will be done waaay before it's release date. In their 'lost' podcast that they posted after ODST was announced, they kept mentioning how it was coming out that winter. They've already sent all the animators home as of 2 months ago.

    And seriously how is this game going to work, I thought Halo established in very clear terms that the Covenant generally fuck the humans right up in battle. I mean, that's why they introduced the Spartans, because every other human force got their asses kicked across the room.

    Well maybe the game will present a challenge of some sort. Alternatively running into a room and holding down 'shoot shit' might not be the best tactic.

    Doubt it though.

    That doesn't mean humans are incapable of fighting them. The odds are just severely stacked against them.

    Get one dude bad enough to survive a fight against the covenant, and base a game around him.. you're good to go.

    Because you're going to be fighting against unshielded Brutes, not Elites. Bungie has already said there are no Elites in ODST.

    They've also said that you're going to have to sometimes choose to not engage/avoid encounters or you'll get your shit wrecked.

    I would have preferred they staged the game in the early portions of Halo 2, I much prefer shooting elites than I do brutes. Elites seem like they actually have a personality, and I admit I am a huge sucker for listening to them chant "wort wort wort".

    re: maps being done a long time ago

    http://nikon.bungie.org/misc/reconclarification.html
    Long ago, all six maps were considered the "Mythic Collection" but now we're in a situation where three of them will be released early as the "Mythic Map Pack." Technically all six are still "Mythic" though. A little confusing, eh? The reality is that these maps and plans originated long ago and a lot has changed since then, creating a little bit of a convoluted situation but the upside is that three of the maps are coming out before the Halo 3: Recon retail release.

    Well, Comic Sans is the superhero of the font world.


    So this game is going to be like playing Halo with a character without regenerating shields, the ability to hold a weapon pinpoint-accurate for hours on end, a suit of armor injecting magical happy juices that prevent physical death, and the strength to kill things by punching them and flip cars? Will it at least be Republic Commando-esque where you have a squad of soldiers that are sort of competent? I'm sure the humans had to have won at least one battle without Spartan support, but I haven't read any Halo books so maybe they're terrible. But the ODSTs are supposed to be the elite human soldiers if I recall.

    The article at the Halopedia (apparently everything has its own encyclopedia and you can find it by adding -pedia to the concept) seems somewhat informative.

    ODSTs are closer to Spartans than they are to regular shitty marines.

    I mean, they don't have the Godlike powers or the alien suits of armour but they all have big manly bears underneath those helmets and they will fuck you up.

    the game is based primarily around a 4-man squad.

    You don't use some of the weapons master chief uses. Mostly because you can't physically lift them.

    since its more based around covert ops, you have silenced weapons.

    I dunno. In Halo 2 and 3 when they show up, they seem to get shit done. I mean maybe it is the advanced AI from game to game but I remember legions of marines dying in Halo 1 but in the latter two the ones with the shiny helmets doing alright.

    We'll know more details after E3, I imagine. If not, PAX. They've said it'll be priced as an expansion, but I imagine it'll end up being full price. To be honest I'm willing to pay it, though - they've proved to me that their games are top notch.

    They're pretty beefy in the Halo books as well.

    They were basically the best and most feared warriors of the human race, up until the Spartans came along.

    Given odds are fair your guy is a woman, D:

    As for the covenant fucking us up, it's mostly space dominance they have. Things are (slightly) more even on the ground, especially given you'll be an SAS analog. The one thing I wonder is whether they'll have ways of differentiating your teammates in co-op which seems likely.

    halo-3-odst-20090410091321323.jpg

    Possibly different starting weapons to encourage team work?

    I hope this is a love letter to the Halo trilogy and it has all the indicators of it (outside the lack of elites). Hell they're using the ensemble dark horse, in New Mombasa. One can only hope that there's the option for it to be ball breakingly hard, even with four guy co-op and packed with secrets. Oh and some new vehicles on top of the weapons would be pretty sweet.
