You won't find many revelations in the latest episode
of the Bungie Podcast, but you will find plenty of talk about mission design as well as an ill-advised sports bet. This week, the Bungie kids speak to Paul Bertone, who just happens to be the Campaign Mission Design Lead for Halo 3
. The guys spend some time talking about campaign scoring and how it came into being (hint: lots
of people never finished the Halo 2
campaign). One interesting note: apparently, many of the "meta-game" achievements
are more or less impossible to achieve on normal difficulty. In other words, you'll have to crank the difficulty up to Heroic -- and still play well when you do -- to net some of the scoring achievements. But you were going to do that anyway, right? You'd better, because if you don't, we'll know.
