Halo 3: ODST ViDoc 'Bip. Bap. Bam.'
Posted by urk at 8/24/2009 11:59 PM PDT
Oh, hey. Here we are again. Just you and me and the middle of the night. And once again, your insomnia is gonna pay dividends.

After dropping the last ViDoc “Desperate Measures” into the mix we quickly made mention that we were fast at work on another one. We also noted that you would be quite familiar with the star of this second ODST show. Some guessed that Dare was gonna make an appearance; others assumed that Buck had more to say about his squad. Those people were all so totally wrong.

Can’t really blame ‘em though.  We didn’t provide much context. Until now:

“Sergeant Johnson has been in more life or death situations than you've had hot meals. He’s survived planetary invasions, Flood outbreaks, and kicked a galaxy of Covenant backside. Now you get to walk a mile in his boots in ODST’s new cooperative game mode: Firefight. Ten hellish missions. Grim, game-altering skulls. Surviving the Covenant onslaught won't be easy, but pre-order your copy of ODST now and unlock Sgt. Johnson for use in Firefight! Download Bungie’s latest ViDoc and let his inspirational words, jaunty hat, and inextinguishable cigar motivate you and your squad to victory!”

Sick of wordplay?

Bip. Bap. Bam. Welcome to Firefight.

We added a subtitled version this time out for our hearing impaired fans (and for those wanting to pore over each and every word).  And as always, we'll get all the flavors added to the Halo 3: ODST Project Page when we awaken in the morning and get our fill of coffee.  If you're looking to get your fill of this ViDoc on your Xbox 360, it should be on Marketplace shortly.

If you're so totally freaking out right now because your favorite local retailer isn't on this short list, don't worry.  Just give 'em a call and make sure they'll have the pre-order bonus goods ready on 9/22/09.  Chances are, they're in on it too.

Feet first into awesome.

Looks like ubald unleashed another render over at HBO. This one's a WIP and part of a much larger collection that will ultimately serve as a webcomic. But you should check it out now.
