When was the last time you checked the drill?

A long time ago, when we were still huddled by the campfire, afraid of the harsh sound of the dot matrix printer on the plain, the exercise used to be a .txt file with ASCII art. Sometimes they hint at the long and mysterious history of beef among competing writers in the final FAQ. It was a different era. Now, you are more likely to find a professionally written guide or a rich wiki. Either that is the case, or you have to go back and browse YouTube videos with the sound turned off, so you don’t have to listen to others.

This is our answer, and some from us forum.

Natalie Clayton: I think I occasionally look up guides about loose tasks or items, but the last time I fully “open 15 walkthrough tabs” mode was a replay of Halo 3: ODST last year. I was about halfway through the process of collecting the audio logs of the game, and then I realized that I don’t know where to start to find the rest-these logs tell a very solid little black story, and I want to read it through. Prompt me to copy the exercise map into MS paint and check where I know (or quite sure) because my poor soldier is striding along the rain-soaked streets of Mombasa. I’m glad I did it, mind. That short story is well connected to the main plot, ODST’s midnight street full of jazz is a joy to live in.
