Halo 3: The beta keeps going in video

Halo 3: The beta keeps going in video

Now that everyone finally got the Halo 3 Beta and since we are still in quite slow news days I've decided to do some good quality videos from the game using some films you guys will send me. Needless to say that I don't want any ordinary fight, you have to do something really impressive, either a very heroic action or something terribly stupid, and spectacular. Send them directly to my Gamertag Blimblim, and please do not send me a friends request, I'm already getting way too much as it is and I'll refuse all unless I've already played with you.
As an example of what I want to see, here is a demonstration of what the double shield allows you to do in VIP mode, by Eric WK.
Update: Unless you have something really exceptional, please do not send me films for the moment. I already have almost 2 hours of footage.
Update2: Added a video by Thechapel.
Update3: Added a video where Fujisawa and Op_Ivy go crazy with the Warthog.
Update4: This time it rejmarN who shows us his killing abilities, along with its own method for sniping through a Bubble Shield.
Update5: To be done for today, let's just watch McStabby6 prove us once and for all that it's possible to win a 1 vs 4 match.

Eric WK goes on a Rampage

Excellent use of the radar there, there are some kills I watched again because of the superb movement. Especially that blind 'nade throw that nets him a double kill!

Can't wait until we get full control over these films, there are going to be some insane compilations.

I got a 20-kill spree on the back of a warthog with Op_Ivy driving. Want that? :P

Okay I think I did it right, but I'm not entirely sure.

hmm I don't think any of my videos are terribly interesting...
I just get typical killing sprees (although I only made 10 kills in a row) along with a few slightly funny kills like jumping in the air, hitting the enemy and making him land on a grenade. Shame I didn't save that one :/

A video I saved (Crazy King on Valhalla) shows how I won the match with more than 2x as much time as the 2dn person (hehe) and I got a sweet kill with the power drainer and a grenade on a warthog which exploded and made 1 guy fly threw the air and another walked in to my power drainer then got owned ^_^

I'll perhaps send you a video if & when my 360 works again (damned 3 lights with 0020 error)

It's going to be really interesting to see what people can put together with the video editing in the final version of Halo 3

A lot of practice, skill, luck and knowing the weapons' locations and the map ;) it also helps if you're with a bunch of n00bs

Are all of these videos made using the save video feature? If so it's an addition to the game.

this guy is ownage

I wanna feel how the auto-aim is. Since the crosshair alsways seems to stick a lot. Probably that's only when you assist the aim yourself.

I've got a 35 kill spree as the driver of a hog. The gunner got an invicible and perfection. <.<


Don't remember if I saved that one or not.

I have a vid with me getting a 21 kill streak with a sniper and BR on Valhalla, but watching it will bore you to death since they were all complete newbs and the only action was when someone sneaked up behind me with a shotgun... and still died... ^^

I had an insane game on Snowbound tho. I had 3 guys sourround me, killed two of them and the other cought me off guard. I was nearly dead (shields gone, while he had everything full), then all of a sudden my friend accelerates from the left in a Ghost and splatters the guy just standing centimeters in front of me, that was a very close call. I was laughing so hard, it looked like in Final Destination, one of the best Halo 3 moments for me... sadly I didn't save it cause I was in hurry. :/

Edit: Like said above, to be a good halo player you need practice and friends who're good at Halo, too. They show you some tactics, better ways to go around and so on. It's much more easier if you watch good players doing it themselves instead of learning it the hard way.

lol Blim = Mr popular

it is also important to note that throughout that vid the player was the vip and nearly all his kills were from taking out people with normal shields. Apart from the assasination of the other vip but surely, surely his opponent should have seen him or at least on his radar. The stupid guy with overshield turning his back had assasination wrote all over it.
Commented on 2007-05-18 23:51:29
That was crazy! I wouldn't last a second against that guy!
Commented on 2007-05-19 00:30:38
Can't wait to see the other videos, Blim, keep them coming! Actually, this should be a weekly installation.
Commented on 2007-05-19 00:45:21
He has overshield, that explains a lot. He's really good tough.
Commented on 2007-05-19 01:14:13
Killing a VIP was a bit tricky for me until I realised and rediscovered that a charged plasma pistol instantly knocks out overshields, that way the bastard hasn't got a hope in hell.

I was quite happy went on king of the hill and ive never played halo 2 online. And I was winning until right at the end and I lost by only a few points. I kept pressing the left trigger to zoom in with stuff and throwin nades by accident mind you. Gonna take some getting used to.

Here is the stat link for that game for everyone to look at,

phaethon and i had the most stupid moment in Halo 3 history, well mainly me cause i was driving. turns out every little bump i'd hit, it would flip the wathog over. every 3 feet, i'd be flipping the warthog hahaha. too bad i didn't save the footage.
