Some ODSTs are bigger than others.
Since the very first Halo, there have been characters you simply cannot kill - they're immortal because they're critical to the storyline. Usually, you hardly notice - if they're fighting alongside you, you're generally too busy keeping yourself alive to pay attention to how much damage the NPC is taking... but occasionally, you find yourself in a situation where you're forced to see it. The following clip is about 50 seconds long, and can be said to contain spoilers; it takes place near the end of the game, and if you haven't gotten there, you might see something that you don't know about. The location is relatively generic, though, and no (major) story spoilers are obvious. The action takes place on Legendary difficulty, and I must say, I felt like a little girl who'd walked in on her dad being worked over by a pair of mob goons - for all the good I was doing, I could have been slapping them on the back, yelling "get off him, you meanies!" The comedy gold, though, comes at the end - wait for it. You can grab 'Buck the Brave' in either QuickTime format (34.3 mb) or WMP9 format (31.1 mb). Enjoy. (Louis Wu 19:12:00 UTC)
