Halo 3: ODST Welcomes You to the Front

Still sceptical about Halo 3: ODST? Well, let all-around bad-ass and ten time consecutive winner of the Aliens Character Look-Alike contest Sergeant Major A.J. Johnson walk you through FireFight, ODST’s new co-operative mode. The thought of Halo having a Horde-like mode appeals to me greatly, as I’ve always found the enemy designs in Halo to be fantastic; just one look into the crowd of enemies lets you know your chances of survival. Seeing the hulking silhouettes of two Hunters ambling through the bushels of Grunts is clear indication that now would be a good time to panic.

I’ve been sold on the ODST expansion since it was announced at the Tokyo Game Show last year, but I know that some people aren’t as stoked about this as I am. After seeing the dearth of information about this game, who’s had their mind changed, and who’s sticking to their guns?

  1. I have to say, I haven’t been very interested in ODST, but this video has changed that. It’s more impressive than the other footage I’ve seen for the game. Darn it… maybe it’s time to add ODST to the purchase list…

  2. I always figured I was getting it at some point, anyway, if not just for the new maps. I’m just mildly angry about Microsoft’s Hey-It’s-A-Halo-Game-So-Let’s-Charge-Full-Price-For-It attitude. I rather liked how Bungie was going to sell it for 40 dollars or whatever. Oh well…I already pre-ordered, at least the pre-order cost a dollar and i’m getting a five dollar Target gift card when I come up and get it.

  3. Well, for me it’s either Forza 3 and ODST or Forza 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. So I dunno….

  4. I’m sticking to my guns with Modern Warfare 2. Even as good as the video looked, I’m still playing the first MW, and I’m sure the second will be just as beastly. especially because now ODST is being charged for full price.
