Thanks for running the demo today Brian, I could tell you were itching to shoot something ;)

Played two sessions of FireFight today; 1st on the new map which is pretty awesome - definitely gets hectic once the wraith is dropped off.

Second was on Overlook, where I got to try the concussion rifle which seems cool - controls weren't inverted on that machine though so I sucked that round.

Yup. But if it is normal, then I gotta wonder about elites as well
I always wanted elites or any enemy in halo to act more animalistic, to climb around, knock things over and actually act like a different species. I love the AI in the series because it is challenging but not much of a difference between grunts and jackals for me.

Hopefully skirmishers bring some very interesting chaos to the mix. :D

Enough with the Corvette vids already--sure, it looks damned pretty, but I want to see how firefight plays out on a bigger, vehicle based map. The best firefight rounds I've had in ODST involved vehicles.
Enough of the FireFight vids already, I want my Invasion on the map Spire vids! :D

They're not going to show anymore of the firefight maps due to possible spoilers in the campaign.
I do hope there will be some better firefight maps, all the ones show so far aren't exactly great for vehicle combat.

I'm kinda disappointed that you can't raise or lower the fork. :(

It would have been awesome to move around crates and build a little fort to help keep the baddies out.
I would have liked to make a forge map and infection gametype where the zombie drove a forklift and had to drop items and explosive things on players who were in a pit below. Could be random and fun.

Dude, are you fucking kidding me? What the hell is your problem? You've made like 4 posts, all of which are nothing but complaints.

You seriously need to sit down and zip it, because whining about it ain't gonna make Frankie come in here and post a video. All we have is Corvette right now, so that's all you're gonna get. You know if Waypoibt or Bungie puts up bids of another map, they will be posted.

Chill.

Part 2 of that Gamersyde vid the guy says Halo Reach's environments are now conducive to exploration! YAY. I was hoping for Halo CE like exploration. And Mancannons post makes it that much sweeter.
That guy is Mancannon. :p

I saw this on HBO and I just had to bring it over here (sorry if I steal your thunder Mr. Wu) apparently Forklift action, a Forklift trade magazine did an article on Forky. :lol

I'm going to have to agree to disagree about vehicles in Firefight. There really was only one vehicle map in ODST and I wasn't crazy about Lost Platoon.

Chasm Ten and Crater for the win. :)
Yeah but I did think Firefight with Vehicles was a blast, I really enjoyed the vehicles and hope they have more firefight maps with vehicles. I do like maps without vehicles as well though.

Really? I found Oni Building (the inside version) to be the best firefight map. Love close quarters for firefight. In Lost Platoon and other maps like that when the grenades skull shows up it's just a goddamn grenade shower that's so hard to prevent. I hate it :(

Are you talking about the Beachhead game from E3? Meh, vehicle action isn't that great (but the Wraith spatter is funny).
well the wraith parts pretty boring, but the warthog action at the end is all right. And yeah the wraith splatter is the best part lol

:lol Yeah that would be a lot better.

I'm still going to love Forky. Too bad it won't be on Forge World though. :(
Waaat???? Nooooooo, there goes bumper forklifts/sumo wrestling gametype. :(

Pretty much my goal was to make whatever mini-games I can from mario party but they all will now require you to be in a forklift, my dreams have been crushed. :lol

I'll play if you need someone, I already have the achievement but its always fun GT: avp DRAGON
Ah, I need both Annual and the firefight one, but ODST netcode hates my internet connection. I have 2 ODST achievements left and 3 Halo 3 achievements.

Any easy way to get the sword/shotgun spree achievements in Halo 3 for the new maps? Also the one for getting a perfection medal seems impossible. :|

I need Annual as well, but my router is not being very cooperative these days, so I'm hesitant to play with you guys. I don't want to drop out, causing everyone to have to start over. But, if you guys want to risk it, I'll play.

Wow., was it a team effort? How did you get a perfection? (That is 15 kills and no deaths?)

Halsey Video Journals confirmed.
Why. Why would you even make me hope for that.
If it's that...I would have no words.

Forky's a gotdamn celebrity now. Congrats.
Like the missile pod reticule on that, and the rate of fire seems fair. EDIT: guy uses a laser on a pack of 3 grunts and misses all 3 :lol Something I thought only I could pull off.

Also, that map was the one from the Gamespot commercial. So that map isn't Countdown or Boardwalk (or Boarddown or Countwalk).
