What is Team Throwback on Halo 3? How Do I Get the Maps For Team Throwback?

There is a new game type for halo 3 online players, it is called Team Throwback. But when you go to it you can’t play it. It tells you that “One or more players don’t have the required maps to play that game type.” Even if you have downloaded all the map packs: Heroic, Cold Storage, Mythic, and Legendary map packs. Don’t be confused, these are all the maps that you can download right now, but you still won’t be able to play Team Throwback for Halo 3 online.

The only way to play this game type is to buy Halo ODST which has the maps that you need on it to play Team Throwback. Yep that’s right, Bungie has done it again. They have found another way to snatch some more money out of your pockets. You have to buy a whole game ($59.99) just to get the maps to play Team Throwback on Halo 3.

It would be nice if they just offered these maps for download through xbox live for $5-10 rather than buying a whole game that you may might not play that often. But that is Bungie’s plan. Get as much money from you as they can.  Thanks Bungie!  We all have a bunch of money to spend right now in this economic Slump.

We’re just trying to get by!

What is Halo Reach? Is Halo Reach Halo 4?

So what is Halo Reach all about?!Halo 4 Reach

The short trailer that Bungie released for Halo Reach doesn’t really tell you what type of game it is. Is it going to be a first person shorter like Halo 1, Halo 2 and Halo 3, or will it be an arial view, strategy game like Halo Wars, or something different like Halo ODST?

With the recent release of Halo ODST, where you play the roles of elite human United Nations Space Command soldiers known as Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs) during the events of Halo 2 and Halo 3, leads me to believe that they won’t do another game like this right away.

A few months Before Halo ODST was released, Halo Wars came out. That’s 2 games that stray from the regular Halo series game. Neither of which have been as good, or nearly as popular as the regular Halo games.

I believe that Halo Reach will be more or less Halo 4. Bungie needs to get back to their roots after making a couple of games that didn’t quite make it for them.


Why did they title it Halo Reach?
I am not sure on that. Bungie may be trying to move away from the numbering system for the games before they get too high, which I think is a very smart move.

I believe that Halo Reach will be Halo 4, with a whole new story line using Mater Chief!

Let us know what you think Halo Reach is all about, Comment below!
