Halo 3: ODST may have been made in 14 months, but can Brian Jarrard justify it in 30 seconds?
we can sit here all day and it's still not possible to justify a 60$ expansion
masterchief died, along with halo a few year ago =/
master chief is playing halo 2 during this game. he took of with ship that jumped away at the very beginning of ODST. (that's also a part in halo 2) i don't need a justification. i got my 50 euros right here. (this game is actually 15-20 euros cheaper than all new games in the netherlands) Day 1 buy for me!
Not worth $60.
A game shouldn't need justification.
you know there's something wrong with a game when you need people to justify it, and plenty of online articles about reasons why or why not it's worth the full price
a fun little thing that Kotaku does. Stop being morons. It has nothing to do with ODST needing to be justified. You either like it and will buy it, or you wont. It's as simple as that.
The wii as a piece of technology isn't worth $250, but because people want it they can charge that price. Same here, it can't have cost them much to make but people want it and due to supply and demand, they can charge it.
LMAO!!!!!!!! THIS IS SO SAD, They had to make a video ROFL!!!!!!!
but still a might buy .... never mind too many good ps3 games coming out... only 360 game that is day 1 purchase is mass effect 2.... that game is going to be beast... but then i got gow3, heavy rain and bioshock .... man come on microsoft give me games not twitter
If you bought Halo 3 and liked it, then you won't give a crap about these criticisms. You'll still buy it. A halo fan should buy all titles in the franchise, even if you don't like it, it would be just to try it out. I'm one of those who dislike Halo franchise in such a high level that you'd never see me holding a copy in my hand, but i have no problem with people who like it. I don't like it when developers have to justify the purchase for you when so close to release, which makes you wonder why. I think they themselves realize that it's not worth the full 60$. "2 new weapons, a new campaign with coop, 24 extra maps"... this to me doesn't sound very much after a year of development, especially when other games have more after a year of development. Like Resistance 2 60 player multi, seperate coop campaign, HUGE 30-40 maps, great story with 9-12 hour campaign. But then again, approximately 8-9 million who bought Halo 3 will want another taste of their beloved franchise and who can blame them, if they liked the last game why not buy this one? It's all good in the end, but developers shouldn't try to justify their own products... They should be confident enough to believe in their own products, and in the end this fake hype will only end up hurting sales.
Look at what a game like Uncharted2 is offering for 60bucks and look at what this game is offering for $60 and you tell me if ODST is worth 60smackers.
Microsoft must've caught up that people aren't going to be in a mass spending spree on ODST. Even the most hardcore of Halo fans should know this is a pure scam to get all your dollar bills. Think before you buy.
1) All new story (Which according to Bungie is 6 hours long (Which they soon changed to 10-15 because fans didn't like that small number)). 2) Lots of people have loved and enjoyed the Halo series (If everyone jumped off a cliff...) 3) 2 new weapons (OOOOOOOOOO, AHHHHHHHH..... -__-) 4) Firefight (Horde modes justify EVERYTHING, right?) 5) Beta (Okay, that's cool) 6) A bunch of maps, mostly recycled from Halo 3 (Way to go out with a bang, eh?) That was WEAK. I can't believe they let this guy represent Bungie. @1.4: Exactly. I want to get ODST eventually, but I'm not paying $60 for it.
..not only that but he claims that 25 million people have enjoyed the Halo series in the past few years. He's talking about his own series and i would think he would be more honest about that and not just throw in a number to get more hype. ROUGHLY 25 million copies have been sold in total of 4 Halo titles. That's not 25 million people, that's about 6,25 million people per title. I'll even bet that it's the same people who bought Halo 1, 2 and 3 that will buy ODST.
I think, ODST is indeed something!
alot of blind people here. Kotaku do a justify your game segment for every big release. Im sure we will hear a different tune once Uncharted 2s justify your game segment comes around.
I think it's funny that matchmaking in halo 3 is considered to be one of the best things about it, and yet the new firefight mode doesn't even have matchmaking. Seriously?
justify subHD MGS4
MGS4 native resolution is 1024x768 as apposed to 1280x720 for native 720p. HD or not, notice that vertical lines are the definitive measure of things thus 1280x720 is 720P and 1920x1080 is 1080P. clearly Kojima has put more than just 720 lines vertically compared to 720 and the game just look gorgeous!
HAS NAME IS master BOT NOT master Queef.
HAHAHA, that made my day!/sarcasm solid droid... see how funny i am.
It got better value then any ps3 exclusive ever made.
I wasnt going to comment, but you sir live in denial.
this is a perfect example that pizza got no brain
you don't really believe that, do you? If you really do believe that, you are really a f*cking fanboy idiot who shouldn't even have the right to express such a delusional opinion.
Halo has features that most fps dont have . To discredit halo is like discrediting call duty 4 .
what features are you speaking of?
your a terrible troll, just terrible.
Forge Theater customizing gametypes File Share Bungie Pro online stats emblems Bungie Favorites ect.
Xbots they are playing your song.
http://www.n4g.com/PopUpPag... ^^^much appreciated
you little boys do? Troll 360 articles taking bubbles from people? Do you really expect people to agree with your moronic statements about a 360 game in the 360 section of N4G? Are you that stupid? I know, a lot of questions. I trimmed it down a little so it's easier to read and comprehend.
