Can you believe Halo Reach launches in less than 2 weeks? Neither can we. While the launch of the game means our previous favorites Halos will probably get played a whole lot less, we figured the best way to celebrate is to go out playing Firefight! Read on to join up this months for Waypoint Night

Halo Waypoint Co-Op Night - ODST Firefight NightNick Puleo

We've had a few months away from our normal monthly Halo Waypoint Nights, but they are back! We're only two months away from Halo Reach and that means we have plenty of co-op goodness to get done in Halo 3 and ODST before the big launch. So what's on tap first? Firefight!

A little over a week and a half ago, Co-Optimus and Bungie had another one of our Halo Waypoint Co-Op nights.  The focus of this particular event was to collect the skulls and audio logs from Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST, respectively.  Having not yet gathered all of the audio logs in my single player game, I figured that this was the perfect time to do so, and I was not alone.  Nick and community member Bakken Hood were also pursuing these back-story fragments that were scattered all about New Mombasa, and were prepared with a map that showed the locations of all the audio logs.  We were unprepared, however, for what awaited us at the end of our search.

The Halo Reach multiplayer beta kicks up next Monday, and the only way to get access is to own and copy of Halo 3: ODST.  You'd think by now that most Halo fans would own a copy of ODST, which was released last Fall, but according to Microsoft - that's simply not the case.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is a first: a competition ladder group has made good use of Halo 3: ODST's stat tracking and begun coordinating global challenges for the Firefight co-op survival mode. We love Firefight, but thanks to its painful lack of co-op matchmaking we've had to resort to our Waypoint Co-Op Nights and Co-Optimus matchmaking tools in order to secure a full four-man squad. Websites like HaloCharts.com are not only innovative...but useful in this regard.

We've previously covered, through various post-mortems and look-back interviews, how Bungie had considered Matchmaking for Halo 3: ODST, but how it was ultimately shot down due to the time and effort that would have been involved with such an undertaking.  Well last Friday OXM UK heard from Bungie's community boss, Brian Jarrard, that Bungie's biggest regret was "not being able to go back and make Firefight in ODST work and have match-making."

Between learning more about Halo: Reach and still playing Firefight mode with our friends in Halo 3: ODST, we've got a bit of Halo on the brain. GameInformer.com is in the same boat, and have taken a look back on the development of ODST after the fact to supplement their desire for Halo. We take a look at the inclusion of Firefight mode and the history with the team behind the magic of ODST from the GI interview of ODST creative director Joseph Staten.

G4TV sat down with Bungie's Joseph Staten, Lars Bakken, Curtis Creamer, and Brian Jarrard to talk about Halo 3: ODST, and reflect back on the title.   A large part of the interview talks about the game's identity crisis, and how it changed over time from a mini-game to a full blown retail product.  The guys discuss how this hurt them in the reviews, but overall, didn't seem to affect sales at the end.
