2009's Finest: In Praise of the ODST OST

Insights into game music and the people who create it.

1UP's Jeremy Parish loves him some Marty O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori.  Total mancrush.  Who can blame him?  We've all hear the ODST soundtrack.  Check out his own heartfelt and bromantic thoughts on the subject after the jump.  It's well worth the read.  Thanks to HBO for the pass.

Halo: Reach Score: Mobilized and Ready

Marty's giving out his gift early this year.

Channel 9 and Inside Xbox conducted an interview with Marty O'Donnell that you might want to check out.  It's over fifteen minutes long and goes pretty in-depth with the man who writes our songs.  You can grab it here.

You might also want to head over to the Halo: Reach project page.  We just deployed a new audio file.  Marty says he was aiming for something somber and visceral that highlighted Noble Team's attitude.  In his words, "these folks don't panic and they're never in a hurry."  You?  You should hurry up and snag the track.  Click the link below to get your adrenaline pumping.

Halo 3: ODST ViDoc 'Dramatis Personae'

Unmasking Halo 3: ODST's characters.

Now, don't get all worked up.  We think this is a pretty sweet ViDoc, but if you've already played through Halo 3: ODST you're not going to find any super awesome and totally revelatory information.  What you will find is a nice little behind the scenes look at the cast of characters straight from the ODST development team.  And a whole mess of spoilers.  And a lady with balls.

Originally intended as an Intel (Extras) exclusive for the folks who picked up and played through the game, we've made it live on our YouTube channel as it went up prematurely on Marketplace earlier this morning.  Since it's out early, we don't have the ultra high quality, direct download stuff you crave, but we're working right now to get those up and running too.  Expect delivery within a few days.  You should also expect to see the video start to spring up inside ODST shortly as well (if it's not there already.)

Halo 3: ODST ViDoc "Dramatis Personae"

"Get the inside perspective from the storytellers at Bungie and step into the boots of the new cast of characters fighting for survival inside New Mombasa. From the battle-tested team of ODSTs to the civilians' desperate plight, the team at Bungie knew the stakes were high. See how they layered an ensemble cast into a combat-effective story, and then brought performance and sound together to cast light and life into the darkened city of New Mombasa and Halo 3: ODST."
