Can’t really blame ‘em though. We didn’t provide much context. Until now:
“Sergeant Johnson has been in more life or death situations than you've had hot meals. He’s survived planetary invasions, Flood outbreaks, and kicked a galaxy of Covenant backside. Now you get to walk a mile in his boots in ODST’s new cooperative game mode: Firefight. Ten hellish missions. Grim, game-altering skulls. Surviving the Covenant onslaught won't be easy, but pre-order your copy of ODST now and unlock Sgt. Johnson for use in Firefight! Download Bungie’s latest ViDoc and let his inspirational words, jaunty hat, and inextinguishable cigar motivate you and your squad to victory!”
Sick of wordplay?
Bip. Bap. Bam. Welcome to Firefight.

We added a subtitled version this time out for our hearing impaired fans (and for those wanting to pore over each and every word). And as always, we'll get all the flavors added to the Halo 3: ODST Project Page when we awaken in the morning and get our fill of coffee. If you're looking to get your fill of this ViDoc on your Xbox 360, it should be on Marketplace shortly.
