Yeah, ODST is very weak as a standalone, but great when taken in context with the rest of the franchise. It takes place during Halo 2 and bridges the gap between 2 and 3. Also it's pretty much Halo: featuring the cast of Firefly and also Tricia Helfer and Nolan North which is pretty neat.

Halo: Reach is... the Rogue One to Halo CE's A New Hope. Like, literally. It's also great.

 

Halo did Rogue One before Rogue One did Rogue One.

Oh also, I know you're not paying for live, but I can do region free gifting occasionally if I knew your GT, Occy ;)

Also Halo 3 is a really nice-looking game that holds up really well in the Master Chief Collection. The specific shaders they use on the various metallic surfaces have a great look to them, and the absurd levels of early-360-gen bloom work really well. At least until you see one of the human characters. They all have these terrifying monster faces that glow like they're made of lightbulbs, and are the easiest way of telling that the game came out in 2007 :P

 

Ya don't say?

OH, also, you should totally download ODST for MCC Occy, it's only $5 or whatever that translates to in upside-down bucks.

The Didact is a cool villain...if they'd actually done anything with him.

 

Ultimately Halo 4's story is about Chief's efforts to save Cortana from dying... but you can't win every battle,

 

Spoiler

 

It's such a shame about Halo 5 pretty much ignoring all of that. Hopefully they put things back on track with Infinite.
