    After the last map pack's "quality", I think I will wait this one out unless Lockout or some other great map is remade.

    Anyway, besides my fanboy bitching, the first map from the pack called "Ghost Town", has been revealed at GDC. This map was code named "OK Corral".

    Another H3 map, Avanlanche, a remake of Halo CE, Sidewinder, has been revealed. Eh....it's not Lockout but it will do.

    That looks great. And I mean in artistry and graphically. Who knows how it'll play besides Bungie.

    And does anybody else want a night time map for Halo? All the Halo 3 maps are so bright and colorful, I want to see a map that looks dark spooky. Kind of like swampy one in Halo 2 sans the swamp and crummy circular level design.

    Guardian is sort of darkish. Some of the base in Last Resort and High Ground is dark.

    I know what you mean though. It would be cool to get a night-time map, imagine how awesome the spartan laser would look at night.

    I love the map, feels like a box mixed in with Sanctuary and Warlock. When I heard them mention OK corral I thought I it would be a dusty, western type level but I am liking this. Though, it doesn't seem to leave much to the forger to change. Hopefully the other maps will.

    you know what, i bought the last map pack, and due to the randomness of matchmaking i've never played on those levels ever. i'll wait till they're free and everyone has them.

    It sure as hell is visually stunning. I didn't play much of Halo CE besides Campaign because of the lack of online play so I'm not too familiar with Sidewinder. It'll be a brand new map to me.

    Finally a price is given.
    The Heroic map pack was a bit of a letdown to me, but after clocking up who knows how many hours dicking around in Foundry, I'm glad I got them.

    Day one for these.

    Acalanche - Looks really nice, I did want a snow area that was good (Snowbound is fucking awful). Is that a homosapien-propulsifier I see?

    Also, Vehicle based gameplay? Sounds good to me. Scorpion in matchmaking? Yes!

    If you haven't seen the snow-camo vehicles and the Hornet overhaul, feast your eyes on these beautys.

    Truly a masterpiece.

    Those look wicked. I really wish TFW would get back into Halo, it really is so much fun. Then again, I've been playing the hell out of Brawl so right now I'm indifferent.

    Bungie should totally throw a random skull on that map for Jimmy from RVB "This doesn't seem physicly possible". Might not be a Containment Remake I was hoping for but still it looks wonderful even with a bit more cluter, from what I saw on Sidewinder on Halo PC it seemed a bit too open. I am definitly buying this baby.

    Oooh pretty snow vehicles. Visually, those new levels look really cool. Been awhile since I've done any Halo MP. I should get back into it at some point. Still need to beat the game on Legendary as well. The Halo nights with TFW was some good times. Plus, with playing more, maybe I could actually play a few matches on the new maps.(So an fyi to anyone playing, I have the new maps as well, so I'd be good to play).

    I'm up for one Twin Twist and Brandon, I and a few of the others did a few levels recently and its a blast. Especially when you're on the last level and you have 4 people either listening to the The Touch or singing it....also it just fits that whole sequence up to the end of that land on the ship cutscene. Also its just fun on some of those levels because you have the gunner bitching at the driver if they're screwing up, gunners and the wart hog some how surviving stick at the front while passanger and driver die etc... I really do hope they recreate Lock out in earnest though someday. I think the Purple Rein map that they said got moved to the next pack in a Midship remake or that other covenant ship level from Halo2.

    Yeah, we haven't done Legendary in awhile Twist. That was good times. I can't remember who else we played with, but I think I remember the nationalities going as American, British and Scottish.
