Ha, bullshit. This nonsense "complimentary access" is the equivalent of Pee-Wee Herman falling off his bike in front of the cool kids and saying "I meant to do that." The amount of people who will play these maps for free, get at least some of the achivements, and then actually buy them after access is revoked is positively miniscule compared to the number of people who just would have bought it if they hadn't fucked up.

I suppose it's also their way to pretend this was all intentional to try to combat the people upset that what they paid extra money for was given away for free.

Not saying this was their best choice but they needed to do something... If you got the first map pack free than it would cost more to have bought the season pass than it would have been to just 'buy' the map packs.

Though truth come to shove... I think a week to demo the map pack is pretty fair.

you don't represent the majority, people will pay for the map pack now regardless. this is actually good damage control.

Has anyone tried downloading the Map Pass on one console to "authorize" that console and then use it on another console while signed in? I know you could do it in Gears 3 and MW3.

I downloaded the map pack on our main Xbox, then redownloaded on our second one and played on the second.

The saddest thing about this made up "Buy and Play" thing is that someone actually came up with a good DLC preview or demo system. People who have the game can download content and try it out for a week before buying it. If they do it with the other map packs, good for them. If they never do anything like this again? Complete BS

ehhh... if it does end up being a trial for the map pack, I'm fine with that. I didn't buy it so no loss for me.

seems like the owner of the $20 on the ground realized his mistake before I could pick it up. :)

but it does bring up the interesting idea of having trials for map packs. that's something I'd go for. so I test out the crimson map pack and if I like it, buy it.

Anyone know if you can get the achievements for the map pack in custom games? I remember doing a few in Halo 3 but maybe something changed. I'm usually not one for "boosting" but the air kill warthog and 20 Mantis stomps...well, if we got a few people together and knocked them out, I wouldn't complain.

I have all of the achievements except the warthog one I'd help though we'd need at least 3 people with 4 controllers or does halo 4 allow multiple guests?

And no they can't be done in customs we can just search for a full game with a full party

No matchmaking only.

Just be careful using guests, in Reach they had people banned for having guests that are not active. I am not sure what the order is, but I think it is an xp ban for like a day and it obviously gets worse.

I would like to do the mantis kills, I have three, but I don't really like using the mantis.

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

Just sign up for a game session over a true achievements and they should all be pretty easy to do. :)

We don't plan on doing this all day. Two games MAX. I can do me + 3 guests.

I did mantis legit it was pretty brutal since everyone has a plasma pistol if I got more than 2 a game I felt like I succeeded.

This. I never understand why people rush to get DLC achievements....just play the game and enjoy it instead of going through a bunch of hassle to add 50 gamerscore.

Hmm I finally broke down and picked up the War Games Pass, I know I'll be playing for some time now (but seeing Borderlands2's Season Pass on an upcoming sale makes me question if I should have held off another few weeks).

I already got it scratch me off the list haha.

One question, I got the ODST achievement in the first game when the dlc first became available and it is not showing I have unlocked it on xbox.com. So would I have to redownload my profile again and try to get it again? From what I gather is if you delete the profile and download it again and get the achievement again, it will show up.

Sorry if this doesn't make sense, its just I have never had this happen before.

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

Not gonna happen. Like I already said, a few of these aren't particularly "fun" and detract from playing like you should be playing anyway, and by the time I got even close to the Mantis one naturally the playlist would have a lot fewer people on it. I want this nonsense over with.

INMATEofARKHAM - thanks for pointing that site out, I had signed up for it randomly in the past but didn't know they had sessions like this. Signed up for one on Saturday AM.

If you want it over with then why even go through it in the first place?

Hey, I got a great idea guys...let's make this ability that's been a POWER-UP for the first 3 games, into an Armor Ability! Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Bungie really fucked it up by setting that precedent with Reach.
