    Well kids the Beta starts Monday! Who is getting in on that sweet action? I bought a copy of ODST at launch so I will be perusing it without a doubt. Also, last night I was watching Justified on FX (pretty cool show btw) and I saw Bungie's Birth of a Spartan commercial for the first time. I must say, it is as good as the previous live action commercials they have done.

    YouTube - Halo Reach Live Action Birth of a Spartan Trailer [HD]

    From the commercials alone it makes me that much more angry that they scrapped the live action Halo film. Someone needs to scoop that shit up and make it happen. Bungie and the Halo franchise lit a fire under everyone's ass and I honestly believe it was due to Bungie's efforts that games have gotten better and better. Anyway, if you have not seen the ODST live action commercials check them out. They are pretty slick.

    Looks like Bungie partnered up with Activision for a 10 year stretch too. Which good for them, it will get them on more platforms but if they cut ties with the 360 or skimp out on it with their upcoming title I am going to be a little more than pissed.

    I already had odst and when I heard all I needed was that for the beta I was so pumped. Mw2 is going down.

    I wouldn't go that far. But I would imagine that the numbers playing MW2 will dwindle a bit. It has been a long, long time since I played Halo online. I played a little ODST the other night. For some reason I thought that I still needed to beat it on Legendary but I already had, about 5 months ago.

    I was pretty damn good too back in the day. But most of the guys that I would play Halo pretty much only play MW these days. And I always do horrible at pick up games.

    Whys that?

    I have played around six matches and have really dug it. The sound is amazing and the graphics are slick. The transitions are solid as well. I have really enjoyed it.

    The pistol in Halo: CE was a god damn sniper rifle ha ha. They have re tooled how damage is dealt as well. I found a decent write up on it the other day. I will try and track it down. But from memory this is how it works:

    If shields are worth 10 points and health is worth 20 points and someone throws a grenade that does 15 points of damage it will remove the shields. However that remaining 5 points will not damage the unguarded health pool.

    I am really digging the armor perks as well. It adds a new level of dynamics to the game play. I have not really noticed any over bearing balance issues yet either. Now a few people I was playing with where bitching about everyone using jet packs but really they are a floating target. You don't drop like a rock when you stop your jet so to me it isn't a huge problem.

    The HUD, video and audio are greatly improved in my opinion. Using my Turtle Beach x400's is simply amazing. The way the effects work both audibly and visually are awesome. You get an almost shell shocked experience from them. The transistions in the lobby and menu are very nice as well. I know that not to many people care about that kind of stuff so I guess that shows how big of a dweeb I am...

    I think that's exactly why I never really got into Halo multiplayer. It's just not fast-paced enough for me. In games like CoD where just a few or maybe even one bullet can kill you and there's no shields or extra health I'm much more motivated to stay alert and try to be very tactical about it...

    I'll be honest I'm still a halo geek but I stopped playing the beta and went back to mw2 only because the beta is...a beta so you're limited to what maps you play and game types. An the reason I went from halo to mw2 in the first place is I couldn't get higher than a 45 in halo 3 online and that's all I have to do, mw2 has all the weapon unlocks, perks, etc to keep it fresh. Fortunately halo reach seems like its throwing that in too. That said I'm still pumped for reach.
