Our pals at X3F scored early access to Halo 3's looming Legendary Map Pack, and -- bless their hearts -- they've decided to share. True, Bungie gave us a tour just yesterday, but X3F's video is no gallivanting stroll through a ghost town; there's no disarming charm to blackout the scrutinizing wit ...

Wow, this new trailer for the Halo 3 Legendary map pack sure has us feeling nostalgic, and it's not just because two of the three maps are remakes! The trailer reminds us of the mid-autumn media frenzy that was the Halo 3 launch, with all its glitz and splendor. Those were high times for the ...
