Red vs. Blue Drops Into Halo 3: ODST

Red vs. Blue Drops Into Halo 3: ODST

The Rooster Teeth crew behind Halo-themed comedy machinima Red vs. Blue have been commissioned by GameStop to create promotional videos for Halo 3: ODST as a sneak peek for eagerly awaiting fanboys.

MTV Multiplayer caught up with two members of the Rooster Teeth crew, series creator Burnie Burns (voice of Church) and Matt Hullum (voice of Sarge) about their involvement in the promotion of Halo 3: ODST. Understandably, GameStop is eager to raise awareness of the game that will likely be vying with Modern Warfare 2 for the biggest FPS of the season, and so asked the popular Red vs. Blue team to get in on the action.

[Gamestop] came to us and said they were looking for a cool way to tell people about ODST and they thought Red vs. Blue would be a good way to do it...They came to us and asked if we'd like to take some of the RvB guys and show off the features of Firefight mode. Basically that meant we got to play ODST a month early, and we're never gonna pass that up.

While the RvB team is hard at work on their various series - let alone any possible options that could be opened up when the Halo prequel Reach hits next year - Hullum says he'd like to look into doing other franchises besides Microsoft's flagship title: "I would like to do something dark and edgy for Viva Pinata. I think there's a darker side that hasn't been explored yet."

ODST is scheduled to ship at the end of the month.

That's only slightly more disturbing then the actual game.

It's fixed.

You got my hopes up and I saw NOTHING Ghost Recon related. Now I'm sad.

OT: The video was too much of an advertisement to be any measurable level of funny. Now I'm double sad.

Red Vs. Blue: The only saving grace of Halo.

Laughter. The only response I have for this. Also, I saw this a few days ago on
RoosterTeeth.com

Well, considering that it is an advertisement, it shouldn't be a surprise. They did machinima adverts for Maden before, as well.

haha, that was quite funny XD plus it was a good promotion for ODST as well... I guess marketing isn't a problem for Gamestop :P

:O CHURCH!
*insert marridge propsal here*
/fanboyism...

"Oh, I love movies, and scrimages sound delicious."
Lol, Caboose you make me laugh.

So I haven't been one to care for anything Halo related(Except Red vs. Blue, of which I am a huge fan), but this game looks pretty much like Left For Dead but in the sci-fi genre with marines and aliens... Is this observation off-base?

Ugh it looked shite but then why break from the series tradition. and the fact that it's gonna sell by the fuckton depresses me.

The Great JT:

WHY must there be so many quotes like this in every Halo thread made regardless of the thread's actual content? If you don't like Halo, that's fine, but we're not debating Halo's quality here.

I did as well, but it's always nice to see one gaming website recognize another.

Well, considering its not shooting through hordes of infected trying to get from point A to B with 4 people, I would say yes. I guess since Gears 2 stole Halo's crappy matchmaking system, they would steal Horde mode.

They really should have stopped with their stuff a LONG time ago. Their material is predictable and repetitive. The whole thing is fan service! They may as well have thrown in a joke questioning Donut's sexuality or another shameless hit on a chick by Tucker to top it off.

Red vs Blue will never be as good as it was but it still beats alot of shows in overall quality

Then maybe you shouldn't have your life revole around it and just ignore it.
OT: Not as good as there previous promtional videos but still funny. You have to love Caboose.

Lol "So, where are the regular soldiers?"

".....Maby I got the wrong tape."

"I'm scared"

Brilliant.

I love RoosterTeeth, they're awesome.
This video made me laugh

"A brand new Halo game!" anyone else lol?

Game Stop also had a contest to write a PSA for Red vs. Blue. Check out the new video: http://www.gamestop.com/gs/landing/odstpsa/

wait, i swear my brother already has ODST...

whatt?

Yeah, ODST has been out a while, but the PSA is new I think. Guess the contest finished after the game released.
