Oh man, I totally forgot about equipment even being in the game lol

Also if you search manually for Halo 3 on the Marketplace on the 360 it's showing up as free now, you don't have to use the website.

Edit: Is Mythic 2 required for matchmaking? I don't have my copy of ODST anymore so I'm not playing off the MP disc there, and that's the only one I don't have standalone.

Weren't you not supposed to install it, though? I figured a download version would have the same issue.

Here here. Also crossing fingers for a server browser to come with said PC release. Don't want to be stuck with random matchmaking in my games. Along with Halo: CE and 2 Steam releases.

How many Halo 1 and Halo 2 maps come with the game? I don't remember much about Halo 3 multiplayer since our LAN community was pretty much dead at that point.

yes, but if a single player in the lobby has it installed, it brings everyones loading speed down so you really got no choice. Either way its not that slow.

My game of the generation. I'm gonna give 343 a pass with Halo 4 (though still a good game in my opinion) and hope they return the series back to its glory next Fall.

It does have the same issue, which is just longer loading times. It's not as noticeable for MP maps, though.

Too bad it doesn't come with all the MP maps, I never bought them all at the time, but I do have the Halo ODST MP disc. Unless I'm mis-remembering, that has all the map packs, right?

Most of the playlists require ALL DLC, so for most stuff outside of Slayer that'd be a yes. Lucky for you, they reduced the price of Mythic 2 to $5 for the duration that this game is free.
