They're up now and being d/l by me as we speak. I don't have to go to work till 4, so if anyone wants to play during the day, hit me up.

Unfortunately Mayhem, I don't get home until 5 est so I can't, but I'll be firing away on those new maps tonight if anyone wants to join me.

P.S. - give impressions if you can!

I have changed my AV in honor of the new maps! :D

I'm still debating getting them or not. I know its only 4$

Just shut up and BUY BUY BUY!

(I mean, $4 really is a pretty fair price when you think about it, imho)

Hmmm I am quite impressed that bungie are still supporting Halo2 with maps like 2/3 years after the release. I personaly will not be picking them up. For some reason playing Halo does not work well with my HD TV. anything that is in shade is practically black even with the brightness turned up full on the TV set. This does happen with alot of games but it can be fixed by adjusting the in game brightness, Halo 2 on the other hand does not have an option to adjust the in game brightness(that I have found anyway) so it makes the game unplayable :D. So I am going to pass on getting the new maps.

I get image burning and weird textures on my LCD tv sometimes...but it doesn't make it unplayable. I've been playing H2 ever since watched some MLG games on video on demand, and I'm having a blast.

I hear that the new maps will kill you if you try and super-jump beyond the boundaries--that is awesome. They should add that to all the other maps imo.

The Maps are very nicely made, and Tombstone has some surprises added in... We need to fill up a room tonight...

I just ran around them by myself in a closed room - Desolation doesn't seem all that great to me - a rounded room with a couple air lifts on either side - sort of like Warlock.

Tombstone is really cool - raised platforms, a hidden room or two, every weapon (except the rocket launcher) that I could find. I never played Hang Em High, so I don't know how it compares. Good times to be had I think. Too bad it'll take a week to get em into matchmaking.

i had some time this morning before work so i downloaded the maps and spent about 5 minutes running around each of them.

tombstone is awesome! a lot of it is the familiarity from H1 but i really like the changes that they made to update it. (mayhem- the rocket launcher is at the opposite end of the canal from the overshield). should be a fun map for 1 flag CTF and slayer.

not as impressed with desolation but i can still see it being fun for classic CTF and slayer gametypes. the lifts will make it interesting and there are backside ramps up to each base on the upper level.

see you all on tonight! i think i'll be on around 8pm eastern.

EDIT: i'm hearing that there is a "death line" at the top of the new maps. no super jumpers!

Bah! I can't download them. I'm getting the installation failed error.

Apparently, they were pulled from the server because of the Silver account glitch that allowed people to download them for free.

I have to say that I like the new maps (and had an absolute blast playing H2 again), but Desolation needs a BR start. It's not that big, but it's wide open, and having an SMG is just no good.

Tombstone played very well and, although I didn't play it, I think CTF would be fun on it.

yeah, i had about the same opinions. tombstone is very fun in just about every game type although i'm hearing things today (like invisible walls) that could spoil the map.

desolation definitely needs a BR start and i think it is too big for 4v4 or 8 man FFA (which they claim is why they built it). they should have kept it about the size of the original derelict map. kind of disappointed in this map.

Desolation feels like Wizard without the fog and moss, I'm not a big fan of it. I love Tombstone though, I can't wait to play some CTF or Team King on it tonight.
