Concluding the update, Luke mentions that since Turkey Day is next week there will be no podcast or Weekly Update posted. But, as a replacement for no updates, he hints at goodness that'll be announced early next week saying that "on Monday (November 19) folks are definitely going to want to check back in here at Bungie.net and keep faces pressed to their monitors like children breathing on school bus windows in November, because there will be news. Oh yes, there will be news."
So, what could the exciting news be? We're thinking that since the Weekly Update focused on the upcoming Halo 3 map DLC it'll either be the announcement of the official map names, screenshots from them or just general details for when the new content will hit the Marketplace. We'll keep our faces pressed up against our monitors come Monday, we just don't want to be let down. You hear that Bungie ... don't let us down.

He was also taking about if you are at level 45 you will receive something special. I wonder what that is. Recon anyone?

On bungie.net's homepage, where they highlight the weekly update in the Top Stories, they say it is "The penultimate in Downloadable Content teases". Penultimate means "second to last". So apparently, this is the second to last time they will tease us with info before releasing the DLC. Could Monday be the final tease?

I'm really hoping for some new maps to drown out all the dumb Snowbound and Isolation I've been getting lately.

They won't reward a specific subset of their player-base. They don't work that way. Giving specific leveled players a unique gift would only alienate the other, lower level players. Bungie's smarter than that. If they give away anything, it'll be player-base wide I imagine.

Personally every time they say there is going to be a huge announcement or update its nothing spectacular, yet every time I can't help but anticipate it...

Is the DLC free? I don't think it will be but it never hurts to ask.
11-17-2007 @ 2:19PM
anyone else think that it has something to do with the "buy an xbox 360 get halo 3 free" thats starts TWO days after this "announcement" that just disappeared suddenly?

im not buying the new maps if they dont add them to matchmaking. Sorry but I dont want them to turn into new maps that will be just like the forge mode, never used because no1 can find my custom games. If they decided to add them to matchmaking (and create a big team battle ranked witht hem) or make a server browser so people can actually find my custom games/forge games then I will gladly buy them.

^^^There is no melee bug. It's all in your mind. Go play Halo 2.
And yeah, an announcement about an announcement. Bungie loves to do this stupid shit. They should stop doing stuff like this because they always end up disappointing because of the massive expectations.
It'll be interesting to see if they do hype like this with new games too. I wonder if they'll take a lot of heat if they can't meet expectations or their next game isn't very good.

It would be nice if they added new maps, but also new armor with more colors to choose from, and more options. I wouldnt mind having my character in black armor like the zombies/juggernauts. Even a really dark purple, or dark green. The colors are limited i think. Also an option to change the color of our face mask would be nice!

perhaps it is a special Thanksgiving gametype, much like infection for Halloween?
11-17-2007 @ 5:19PM
The soundtrack comes out on Tuesday, it's most likely something to do with that
But GOD I hope it's something about that level 45 thing, cause I'm at 43, or something to do with DLC!

Idiots. He was simply mentioning that the upcoming changes to the playlists have him excited to "continue [his] desperate quest for Level 45."
TJ Scoot (his gamertag) hasn't hit lvl 45 yet, and the nature of the upcoming changes to the ranked hoppers have him thinking he can finally achieve that goal.
Way to read something that isn't there and get everyone excited/aggravated for no reason, douche. Reading comprehension FTW.

does anyone else hate the term "turkey day" everytime i hear it i wanna punch people in the face because you take away from what respect i had for the holiday, which is based on a crime. And to this i think it will be a thanxgiving day hoppper, maybe pilgrims and indians? turkeys and hunter/farmer/pilgrim?

My sources within Bungie and Microsoft confirm the news is that a movie will be in production by the middle of next year. The project will be a joint venture between Universal, Paramount/DreamWorks, eventually leading to the greatest HD DVD exclusive to date.
Ha, I kid I kid.
That would be sweet though :)

"does anyone else hate the term "turkey day" everytime i hear it i wanna punch people in the face because you take away from what respect i had for the holiday, which is based on a crime."
So you respected the holiday purely based on the fact that we raped and robbed the native americans? lmao.
Our fore fathers were a bunch of assholes... and now our fearless leaders spread the word of democracy in the middle east!
Someone once said something about an apple falling from a tree...
besides, all holidays are commercialized these days, none of them contain any of the original roots they once did.
