    The thing I like about playing as an ODST is they're regular height. All the ODSTs have larger models so they're all at your eye level, unlike in Halo 3 where the models were half the size of Master Chief, so they all look much more detailed.

    Whisper, those logos on the buildings could be representitive of each of the ODSTs your play as through the game. Excluding The Rookie, there are 5 characters, there are 5 different logos on those buildings. The white and blue tear drop, the e, the white Vs, the red triangle and the arrow head.
    I doubt that they're directly link, as I said, theu're just representative of the 5 characters you try to find and play as in the flash backs.

    Firefight looks great, too. Infinite enemies and the whole of Mombasa to play in! That'll be much more realistic than playing as Chief. You're objective isn't to waft pass your enemies and kill them by shaking your fist to go and save the galaxy 5 times over as if its something you do everyday. The objective would be to take as many aliens to the grave with you because you're seriously out numbered and you will die.

    What about the Halo: CE Pistol??!

    THAT was unstoppable! I'll love ODST.

    I doubt it will kill in 3 shots, but its accuracy may be the factor to subtitute the BR.
    Halo 1 Pistol, I missed you so much!!!

    Hmm, excuse me?

    "Firefight."

    I think this may well be the rumoured Horde style mode, unless of course I'm missing something and it's already been announced as that.

    Yeah I'm realllly excited about Firefight! It basically sounds like a complete Horde mode rip off, but I'm still really excited! The thing I'm most worried about is having all the maps included. I feel like Microsoft is going to try to use this to justify ODST shipping at full price, which is useless to most people who already bought the maps. And yeah I know Bungie has said they don't view it is a full price title, but Microsoft is a whole bunch of greedy bastards, so I predict it will be the full $59.99.

    Ok, I've listed some intersting facts about Halo: ODST

    - No shield bars, ODST have a life bar instead.
    - No radar, but have a special night vision.
    - Two new weapons: silenced SMG and silenced Magnum. Both can use the scope (just like in Halo: CE). The silenced SMG seems to have more accuracy than the regular one. The silenced Magnum seems to shot way faster than the regular one.
    - JUST NOTICE: ODST can carry MORE THAN TWO GRENADES of each type. I would guess they can carry 4 of each type of grenade.
    - Bruto Plasma Rifle (the red one from H2) seems to be back.

    One thing that Bungie screwed-over is Firefight, a COMPLETE rip-off of Horde mode in Gears 2. However the gameplay trailer game me a #nerdgasm#. I really can't wait to get it....

    THAT. Ruined my day. Honestly, 60$?... Sadfaic. Limited edition is 100$, a new controller is like what, 60 bucks? That plus the normal game is 100$, but normal game is 60$ anyways. I think it would have made more sense to have the game priced at 40 bucks, most people already have most of the maps anyways.

    I would have rrathered fire fight mode playing as a spartan... hopefully they'll have it in Reach. The enemies will probably come quicker, there'd be more, and also more challenging.
