I don't often promote speed runs here but this one is in the MUST WATCH NOW category. It was supposed to be a Waypoint exclusive on Monday but it was somehow missed. The run was submitted by HISTORY100, a new Japanese runner who is currently destroying the Halo 3 Legendary records table by significant margins.

I've been thinking about how 343 is going to handle SpOps, since it's serialized. 343 can't really go the same route that was with Reach's co-op voting screen, especially if people can't play an episode on the day it's released or are banking a week's worth to play at once (which is how I'll likely do it). I'd think 343 would have to go with a 'select a mission' setting that, like Gears 3, will just continue on to the next episode without bringing everyone in the party back to the SpOps menu.

Of course, that would suggest that SpOps and maybe even campaign has drop-in/drop-out, which might not be feasible. Looking forward to answers on that front.

The part at 9:00 was insane. I can't believe he beat it that fast.

The short bus
I've been playing around in Halo 3 lately. The game is 5 years old, but I'm still finding new things to do in it. Last night, I played The ArK and had the idea of using the Scorpion to take the Scarab down. And yeah, it worked.



So much fun.

You mean people actually did it the other way on this level? I've played that level so many times but I've always used the Scorpion.

Okay, "Nemesis" isn't as good as the sample let on, but "To Galaxy" is ten times better. Awesomesauce.
I like both, but "To Galaxy" is really awesome. Always connecting the trailer's with it.

Weird part is, that it says uploaded 1 month ago.

And Tashi wants to talk with you, sir. :p

Everytime I read more about the Japanese Halo community, I want to meet them. I have to get in contact with them.

Was watching slightly impressed for most of the run. He had good routes and inventive glitching/jumps/etc. Then I hit the 9:00 mark. Bricks were shat.

He just turned H3 into Mushihimesama Futari. Best thing ever.

That's insane!

Watched the Cortana run too. Last time I did it on Legendary I kept getting lost and it took me something like 90 minutes.

Some of those jumps were insane, too...

Someone gif that!

Ha! Really? Normally, I try to do this:



Or use my sniper to snipe the engine panel.
My favorite is landing the Chopper on there, using a gravity lift snagged from the central building. Bonus points for splatters on landing.

Gawd. Halo 3. Gonna have to do a replay before Halo 4 lands.

Watching that reminds me how much I miss that jump height. Not being able to jump on top of the crates in Reach was ... doesn't feel like Halo.

He's my Chifu. ^_^

I know I'm supposed to be impressed by the run, but holy crap, Halo in Japanese is pretty funny. Their Grunts are simply the best, and there's something magical about hearing all the screams they didn't bother to redub. Too bad he had to skip the TO WAR cutscene, I bet this dub add some much needed gravitas to that scene.
Is Japanese Halo 3 region free? I kind of want to play this.

You could only do that in two Halo games anyways.
But those are the games I spent the most time playing. I played a lot of CE on LAN, but Halo 2 and 3 were the games that I spent the vast majority of my Xbox Live time playing. The floaty jump moon boots of Halo 3 is what "feels like Halo" to me.

It's majestic, and seizure inducing.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Super Chiefu.

The music near the end of that level still reminds me of the airwolf theme song for some reason.

That was a pretty sweet run, that drone glitch was especially funny.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBd6ighzqYA

Truely one of the greatest theme songs ever and I loved the shit out of this show growing up.

The 80/early 90s were great for action packed TV. This, Macgyver, A-team, etc.
