In mere hours from now the latest (and fourth) Halo game from the FPS wizards at Bungie will unleash there latest masterpiece on the masses, Halo 3: ODST. Now because it a Halo game without Master Chief, it almost feels like a lighter occasion, without most (but not all) of the pomp and circumstance that goes along with the release of a Halo game. That goes for myself as well, the last two Halo launches I had both taken in the midnight launches and taken time off from work, this time I work the remainder of the week and I will pick up my game during my first coffee break at work tomorrow.
Though the games release may not have the same magnitude of previous entries in the series, it does not mean the game will carry any less weight. All signs point to the game being a sure-fire winner with all the things that have made previous games great, but with a little twist. One thing that won’t change for this release in purchasing the most expensive SKU, that being the Collector’s Pack. For change the limited edition will be practical as it is actually a wireless 360 controller with special ODST graphics upon it.
Personally, I am very excited to play through the campaign myself, play the campaign co-op, play Firefight, and perhaps revitalize my Halo 3 multiplayer games. There will be a lot of gaming to get through in the next few weeks and I am looking very forward to it.
