this, although I never owned ODST, only rented it.

Meh...I bought ODST cheap during the gamefly.com sale, and I kind of like it so I don't really need this, but thanks anyway, OP.

God made me funky! :bomb:

lol.. www.giantbomb.com

a video game website created by Jeff Gerstmann, who got fired from gamespot for giving kane & lynch a bad review when the publisher paid them lots to advertise on their site.


Cool site, I am having problems completing this quest tho :(

You need to first become a member, then all you need to do is type in 'halo' in the search bar, click on 'franchise' then open a tab/window on each of the halo games, and once you open and check the game profiles you'll get a notification that you've progressed in the quest, until you've looked up all 6 games. That's it!

Thanks but I thought I needed to do the other three quests also, 1 was watch the 36 min preview. the other was to watch all the halo reach videos, the third was about finding a page about the early mode of muiltplayer it was called something like "fifteen year olds with headsets" or something like that. But when I got to my profile and load up Quest tracker the little box just stays loading forever.

Anyways thanks for the info, maybe you are right and I just needed to complete the "Previously on..." nothing else :D

AHA, go to Halo Reach's game page, click on concepts on the far left, scroll down and click on "Tea Bagging" and BAM!

try watching it from the actual halo reach videos page. I watched it twice on the thread and it didn't work for me, watched it on there and it worked. I just let it run in the background and mute it.

No you wont need the ODST disk.

"Bungie and Microsoft have decided to give us a handful of access codes that will allow the lucky recipients to download the Beta and start playing on April 29"

Uh, you still have to download the beta if you have ODST.

I didn't see it specified if the disc was required or not for this contest.

I assume it will work like the beta keys they gave out to the people who played halo 2 online. They were all to be given codes to access the Halo Reach beta without having anything to do with ODST.

Does everyone on Giant Bomb who completes the quest get it? Or just a lucky few <_<. (Halfway done currently). Not planning to rebuy ODST just to play the beta

completing the quest just enters you into the drawing as far as I know. Which I did thanks to help from you GAGs :)

Meh, seems like quite a run around just for a "Chance", but whatever i guess, 19 minutes into the video already while i was doing something else. Time to pop in SSF4 ^_^
