Thanks for pointing that out, we'll have to wait for Blimblim. There seems to be some kind of error with the original file. The file can be downloaded though.

Finaly. Gonna download them, that is if I still can play Halo after a whole week of R6:V2.

Should have been free from the start..

1 simple rule, don't charge for community splitting DLC..

I wish they would listen.. If they really cared about their fans they would..

I wonder if these maps being free will boost Halo 3 to #1 on XBL again for a few weeks. Or will the BF:BC beta and COD4 continue to keep players pre-occupied.

LMAO....Since they're free now everyones like...Very impressive/Loved the trailer/Nice. Before...LOL. Everyone was like....Overpriced/COD4 is better/ I'm not impressed.....Just thought it was funny how the mood changed.

Well at least that's logical. I too will be downloading this free and doing a burst of Halo 3 MP.

I think the free Halo 3 content coupled with the $10 COD4 map pack might give Halo 3 the lead for a while.

They said from the start it would be free later.

As with the above point, they weren't added before because not everyone would have been able to use them. It would be pretty annoying to try and find a match, only to fail repeatedly because you don't have the new maps. Duh.

They did. But in fact as a DLC owner you almost never have the chance to play them in regular MM because everyone needs to have them in the lobby. Bungie will now force the people to download the free mappack in order to play certain playlists.

I agree.

hehe that is a cool trailer. Not cool how we've had to wait months for this to become free though!

Love Bungie? Please, if they love us then they wouldn't have charged us in the first place.

Hell yes, I agree 100%!

The one thing I really want to see is matchmaking for coop games. It sucks being only able to play with people from your friend list, I want to play a round or two without having to talk people into playing the game. Gears of War can do it, so why not Halo 3?

I agree.
So you think the game should have forced everyone to buy a map pack?
Ah, I see. This isn't a PS3 game.

I still get the error message :(

I agree, but I don't think there's any hope of them adding that now. Crackdown had it too for that matter. I think there are other titles as well.

There's some error with the original file, we can't fix it unfortunately.

Some people are new at this. There's a reason new maps aren't in rotation at first.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (3 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (7 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (11 minutes ago)
