You over-estimate my skill my friend. Half the time I have struggle to get out of being dead last.  :P

I'm getting pretty psyched for the ODST release tomorrow night. A few of my LIVE friends were able to get early copies and already have about half of the achievements. We are going to need to have a JediDefender Firefight night here pretty soon. :)

Is it true that in order to play the fire-fight (hordes) mode, you'll have to use the ODST disk? I wonder how that will effect it's popularity.

Bummer. :(

I loved the campaign. I beat the solo Legendary campaign in about 9-10 hours of actual playing time. I wish Bungie would have been able to release this at a lower price like they wanted to. It does have the feel of a big expansion rather than a brand new game. For me at least the campaign does make it worth it. It helped having $30 in Best Buy Reward Zone points, so ODST only cost me $30. :)

I think it was worth it.  Not only did you get a campaign the same amount of levels as Halo 3, but you get Firefight which is ODST's answer to Multiplayer. AND you get the Mythic Map disk FREE with this. That's an extra $10 at least (since we all know these will eventually be made available on XBOX marketplace). But it's nice to have all the maps on one disc without having to download them. This helps all of those people who have multiple accounts not have to log in their original account they downloaded maps for so their alt accounts can play on them...sorry if that sounded confusing.

Anyway, if you pre-ordered you also got the Sgt. Johnson skin free.  Plus there is the Halo Reach Beta Invite.

I think we got a solid game with replayability and a nice assortment of extras.

I have yet to play it on Legendary. Though I will once I've gotten all the rest of the achievements. I like the story of tis game and the somewhat non-linear play of it. (Though I played it through as Bungie intended on my first run-through)


Oh, and I haz Recon as well. Nice looking armor, but the shininess is already starting to wear off since so many other people have it already now as well.

I finished all of my Halo achievements today. Now I just need to get the rest on Halo Wars.

I haven't even had a chance to pick the game up yet. I've been waaaay too busy.

I need 2 H3 achievements and 10 ODST Achievements. I've barely played Halo Wars. I thought I was going to be excited about it, but it became a dud for me. Eventually I'll get to it. I have the week off during Christmas to New Years, so maybe I'll play it then. Though I've got several games I need to play.

Games bought and not yet played:
Bioshock (just bought after finally playing the demo, looks sweet and I'll likely get BS2 when it comes out if the first one is as good as the demo was)
Fracture-I picked up this game when it first came out and it's STILL in the cellaphane.
LEGO SW (the complete series). I have both the OT and PT versions. I think those were on PS2 though. Now I'll be able to earn the achievements for the whole series!

Games need to finished but have started:
LEGO Indy
LEGO Batman

Games played through the campaign but don't have all the achievements for:
Mass Effect


So with those games needing played, I don't know if I'll get to Halo Wars anytime soon. I'm stuck on the 4th mission on normal. I'm just not understanding this game like I did with the SW RTS games.

The tough H3 achievement for me is going to perfection. Once I get the new game later this week, I'm up for an achievement party.

I finished my H3 achievements this weekend. I'm hoping to get a party together for some ODST Firefight this evening and through the week. I'd like to be able to knock all of those out, then it's just the Legendary ach, and the two Engineer ach's to go and I'll be done with that game as well.

If only I had the money... I've wanted to upgrade to the 360S but i can't afford it. I might have to just find a way...

I love my 360s. It's a huge improvement over the original. It's very quiet. I think the Wii is louder when the drive spins up. It's stays very cool too.
