Pre-Alpha ODST Preview from HBO

Not quite ready to fess up.

Louis Wu from HBO got a chance to play all the way through Halo 3: ODST this week.  If you know him, now's your chance to hound him in the off chance he'll crack, break NDA, and risk going to prison where he'll have to shower with way too many grown ass men so you can get the early word.  If  you don't know him, you can just read his post. It's a teaser of he review, really.  Check it out.

A word on leaks.

Yup, they're real.  And yes, they suck.  Spectacularly

As much as it pains us to say it, if you're looking to stay spoiler free for ODST we strongly suggest that you steer clear of our forums from now until you've finished up your first campaign play through.

From here on out, you may want to evaluate whether or not it's worth it to visit any online gaming forums or other channels where gaming discussion goes down. The only way you're assured to have a spoiler-free experience, is to go dark.  If that's the call you decide to make, we'll see you shortly after 9/22.  Godspeed, Seventh Column.

Oh, and if you do decide to stick around, best keep it clean.  There's no quarter for leaks on Bungie.net, fake or otherwise.  Links, leaks, and spoilers will be met with permanent bans.

Penny Arcade - Firefight FAQ

Straight from Sketch.

In case you haven't heard, Firefight will be one of the challenges in this year's PAX Omegathon.  Since the contestants couldn't possibly have put in much playtime, Sketch thought he should weigh in with a nice FAQ for them.  Oh, you want to read it?  Hit the link.

ODST's Firefight mode is one of the rounds in the Omegathon this year, and understanding some of the ways in which it deviates from vanilla Halo I thought might be useful for our contestants. Then, after I'd gotten done reading it, I thought it was just interesting in general. I figured I might as well post it."
