    Rejoice! There’s nothing like playing this game in a party with your friends, maniacal laughter while destroying enemy bases or shifting the blame as your own team loses. Hope the add-ons keep coming!

    I also loved the story the Major told of him playing Halo Wars multiplayer and being the resource slave. It’s happened to all of us…

    The question is, what would you pay 99 999 MSP for. A look at the schedule for the E3 presentation?

    800 points for just new game modes? That’s just pure and utter bs. HW launched with too few game modes to begin with and now you are going to rip us off when you update the game to be what is was suppose to be at launch? File size is just 2mb. That’s not DLC, that’s a friggin’ update!

    Kick butt, Major! THIS is what I’m talking about!😀

    Been looking forward to diving into this game as of late, and with new DLC! To think these add-on modes will offer even more to an already solid game…now I just gotta try and get me a points card to get this.

    And at 800 points? I can’t complain.

    Thanks for the direct link to the add-on pack. Too bad it doesn’t seem to work in Windows 7 RC using IE 8.

    As much as i love halo wars, 800msp is steep for just adding 3 gamemodes. It’s RE5 vs mode all over again
    Now if it included the 3 new maps I could almost justify it, but as it doesn’t then I’m afraid i’ll pass on this one.

    Way too steep. Glad I passed on this game. Will have to pick it up late when a greatest hits version is released and is a little more beefier with dlc included.

    Are you guys still complaining about prices and “blah blah blah too expensive” and stuff?

    Regardless that there’s a crappy economy about us, all I’ve ever seen *even with deals like this* on this is WHINING. Incessant whining about all the DLC that gets released.

    You guys are just….funny sometimes. Really, I’m enjoying watching the “BAWWWW” fest.

    800?? COMPLETELY OVERPRICED.. There’s not even new maps!
    Then next month they release a map pack with 3 maps for another 800 points.
    1600 for a game that is hard to find a match and has serious balance issues.

    Microsoft must think we are stupid..

    @XxLightkunxX – If the content wasn’t overpriced then nobody would complain.
    @Raiden BR – Unfortunately I think the most target market is stupid.

    So let me get this straight, this DLC doesn’t actually add on anything new? Sod that.

    I love this game (when not being rushed by n00bers…seriously why do ppl wait 1 minute to play a 3 minute game…then when I counter THEIR rush (i never rush first) they quit cos they don’t have a clue what to do!….pointless!)

    This content is overpriced however. These game modes should have been included in the retail game and there is no way Im paying for them, I probably would only use 1 of the modes anyway.

    @ Lightkun, you’re an idiot. 800 points may not seem alot in monetary terms, but you have to look at what you’re buying to see if its worth it. People complain all the time cos Microsoft doesn’t bring out good enough deals ‘consistently’ which makes them wonder why they bother having these deals at all. Take a week ago…crash bandicoot with its 33% off on xbox originals WAS STILL more expensive than actually getting the game brand new on disc…the deals really are laughable.
    As for this, 800 points really isnt justified, I actually think they should be free (especially given this title has fallen off the top 10 for 2 weeks now, and only really has 25,000 max on at a time). If they want us to pay, Id say 300 points MAX for this, 100 per game mode, and they should split up the game modes so you only download the one you want. @ Microsoft they keep talkin about personalisation e.g. dashboard themes, avatars etc… and yet they don’t want us to customise the gaming experience. Just like those Lips and Guitar Hero downloads, u can download either 1 song or the pack of songs, so I suggest the same for game modes.

    800 Points for three game modes is just insane – a trend that is all too familiar on Xbox LIVE these days. This DLC should be free in the first place, but if it’s premium, it shouldn’t cost more than 300-400 Points. At that price there even would be some whiners and I’d understand them. But 800, come on… A multiplayer map pack, that contains three maps would justify this price, but game modes? I really don’t know how deeper Microsoft can sink in this policy.

    More ridiculous price gouging from MS im beginning to hate the idea of digital distribution if it means companies just raise their prices 10 fold or hold stuff back from releases to make a quick buck.
    Not that Major cares, he wont respond about the price. Face of the community? dont make me laugh
