" @528seven: No, no it doesn't. Halo CE is only good for the first half. After that, it blows. "
Correction: The Library blows. But at least it was more memorable than anything in Halo 2 or Halo 3 (not involving scarabs).

Had a good time today thanks to the sticky challange today. @Tweeker said:

" I haven't touched Halo Reach since I finished the campaign and that was weeks ago. This looks alright but eh I'll pass "
I used to be the same way. Played Halo since the first one, but never got into MP just campaign. Reach however, really did it for me. It's the first game since Counter Strike where I've really gotten into the MP. The tweaks compared to Halo 3 seem small, but it makes a lot of difference.

looks very pretty ,but so slow and cumbersome, I cant understand why you would play this over something like tf2 on the PC, just sayin.

Guys, MP7 for BC2 is the only pack with new maps (apart from the first I guess).

I really don't like Brad's assertion that people are looking at Halo 1 with rose tinted glasses. The gameplay remained comparable throughout the series, but Halo 1 had far and away the best narrative out of all the games, and probably the best sense of immersion I thought anyway.

These maps look so great but $10 and odd achievements...?

Nice to see the Halo online community at it's finest. So glad there were options to rule out these dumbasses.

I actually haven't encountered many idiots on Halo, thankfully.
I've found a lot more in my time with Black Ops and the brief period I played TF2.

Actually, Black Ops has been pretty much silent these past few weeks. And the few conversations I've picked up on have been absolutely harmless.
 
But hey. Gotta complain about Call of Duty somehow...

CE probably isn't my favorite Halo either but even I will admit that game beats the heck out of Reach in story, gameplay, and even soundtrack.
 
I don't find this quick look offensive or anything like some users, but yeah, it basically feels like this ship has sailed.

Jeff clearly does not understand the multilayer. Very frustrating to watch. All game play here aside, its nice to have quick-looks regardless.

Maps seem pretty good, but I don't know if I'm into Reach MP enough to pony up the cash for the map pack. I have a feeling I'm gonna end up spending the $10 on ilomilo instead :D

K4rn4ge was in one of those matches. I only know him because we went back and forth in the original geometry wars for high score on the leaderboards =P

Shame on you Bungie, or microsoft or whoever. I was forced into purchasing this add on. The only way I could play any xbox live matches with a friend was if we both purchased the maps. Otherwise the only thing me and a friend could do was coop or firefight. And once I bought it, me and my friend played big team battle, team slayer and zombies, and after 3 hours of playing, not once did I play a new map. I dont care how sweet these maps are, they totally ruin the online experience for anyone who doesn't want to waste 10 bucks.

welcome to bungie's idea of DLC, halo 3 had horrible semi mandatory add-ons too 
but people love halo too much to complain

Xbox Ed Fries usually works for me too. I don't know what's wrong with your Xbox at all.

@TruthOasis: So hey, I think that's not entirely correct. 
 
 For launch, there is a dedicated DLC Grab Bag playlist available for Gold Xbox LIVE subscribers that will contain nothing but DLC maps. If players wish to play DLC in matchmaking, this is the sure-fire way to do it.

Many other playlists will contain DLC maps as well, but since you are not gated from entry to these playlists by having DLC, you could match with people who don’t have the maps. If that happens, you will not get them as voting options for that session. 

Also notable is that if players enter the matchmaking lobby and select a playlist that uses DLC, but where DLC is NOT required (just optional), they will see a pulsing warning message on the left side of the screen letting them know that they are missing 
recommended downloadable content. This does not block them from entering matchmaking in that playlist, it just warns them that the playlist uses some maps that they do not have. This should have no negative effect on that user.

The worst part about Halo online is not the douche bag chatter (you can mute that) but it's people alway picking the same goddamn match types over and over again.  
 
People suck sometimes.

This makes me want to play Halo again. I haven't really played since before the 360 came out (since I don't have an XBox), and I kind of just want to play again.

I don't play Reach multiplayer much to be fair, but last night i logged in and attempted to have a blast, the only playlists i could into without the DLC was the firefight ones and campaign. 
 
None of the matchmaking ones would let me in until i bought the DLC. 
 
I found this a bit shitty, buy a new game and then have to pay a month or so later just to play decent multiplayer? 
 
Ended up playing a few games of campaign and one session of whatever mode has you as 2vs2 firefight (is it grab bag?) 
 
I wouldnt mind just getting dropped from a lobby if a dlc map was chosen, but to not even let me in at all seamed a bit rough :(

Yes, this is what happened to me last night :( 
 
Although i never bought them, to be honest i feel i will sell/trade the copy on.
