I saw that last night while V was on. I wasn't paying attention and thought that the ships looked a bit different to those in V... I wasn't until the end I was like "The Master Cheif!!!!".

Silly me.

Load of information here

After the disappointment (and shear boredom) I felt for ODST, I'm really looking forward to this.

FYI, the beta is only running for a couple of weeks.

Yeah I was very underwhelmed by ODST - the latter sectins were very good (read - as soon as your team are all found) but on the whole it was kind of boring.

I am actually getting excited for this. I just hope they are putting the effort into the campaign just like they are in the multiplayer modes.

Hey guys, any idea where you get beta code from if you have ODST?

My copy says (and includes a card) that I will be invited to the beta...but does not say how, unless I'm blind! What do I do?

Edit: Ok I worked out you have to put ODST in and selct the beta from there. Trouble I'm getting a, error message when I try to preview it. Oh well.

*sigh*

I wish the games were as good as these ads.

ODST's was great, but the game was poo. And the Reach one is equally as awesome.

Hey, I hardly ever post anymore, and when I did, I hardly did post in Joypad so random post; but I've been able to play the beta via an early download code and I have to say I've enjoyed what I've played and I'm not a Halo nut or anything.

New controls feel a bit weird at first but you get used to them after a while. Melee feels really weird being on the right bumper. They've also changed the melee/health system - rather than a melee taking a chunk of your health away, it will take your shield off. Now even if the shield is extremely low, it still will only take it off. Then the second melee attack will kill. The jetpack is great fun but not as much of an advantage as you would think but an addition for the better of the game. Basically when you respawn you get a choice between getting a speed boost, getting the jetpack or invisibility and those are enabled via the left bumper in game. The new 'Headhunter' mode is great fun and can be chaotic but in a very fun and good way and yeah, as you can see through HD videos etc, it's a very lovely looking game which most definitely is an improvement on the now slightly antiquated engine of Halo 3.

I'm not hopeful but does anyone have a spare code? I know some people have codes and ODST disc but I have neither :(

Ive only got the ODST disc, Maybe you could borrow it from someone? or rent it?

Anyway apparently it wont be down loadable in the uk till 6 of 7pm. I can tell it will be a long download. I bet i don't get the chance to play it tonight.

I think you have to run the disc to access the Beta every time, must like Crackdown/Halo 3 although I could be wrong.

I'm scouring Twitter and loads of people are claiming to give out codes but I'm sceptical.

Mines at about 32% after 30mins.

It stops if you press the guide button, so don't.

my friend was trying to explain to me on Live earlier why this is such a big deal. I tried, but just could not get any enjoyment out of Halo 3. I take it you're either a Halo fan or a COD fan, i am neither it seems

I got a couple of games, though for the most parts the servers were inoperable. Really annoying because I was really enjoying it. I think the jetpack is my favourite thing about it though.
