Prepare to drop: Known for their courage, valor and, at times, insanity, ODSTs are among the fiercest UNSC soldiers, priding themselves on being the first unit deployed into hostile situations. While not as large or supernaturally gifted as their Spartan comrades, these “Hell Jumpers” more than compensate with their ferocious attitudes and unwavering nerve.

All-new campaign content: The Halo 3: Recon campaign is an intriguing side story that takes place during the terrifying events leading up to the Master Chief’s return to New Mombasa in Halo 3. Experience the fate of Earth from the brand-new perspective of a special forces ODST (Orbital Drop Shock Trooper), adding a unique outlook and new gameplay elements to the events that unfold in the trilogy’s finale. While the feel of this new chapter greatly resembles that of previous Halo experiences, Halo 3: Recon will require you to employ more elements of stealth and cunning than ever before.

The stand-alone expansion, set to release in fall 2009, extends the award-winning Halo® 3 experience with hours of new campaign excursions and multiplayer gameplay.

As a huge halo fan how can one not be excited for the release of this new game. Its a stand alone spin off. Cool. In Japan. Never been there, hope the game does the city justice. More hot halo characters to just love. Awesome.

Now let me step away from Halo 3 for a second since it really doesn’e even release till the fall and let me remind you that this Friday is the release of Gears of War 2. Wowser. Can’t wait. Its time to take on the locusts, the kryll, and all of the new types of creatures that the game designers could dream up. Can you actually go the distance and make me pee my pants. I guess I’ll have to wait and find out. 4 days.
