@  Zoob : (17 June 2019 - 09:06 PM) I liked everything about the trailer, and felt the power of the music watching it as well. But I also like the hunt the truth trailers a lot too and the game was nothing like it.
@  Zoob : (17 June 2019 - 09:05 PM) there* I'm hype to game on more than 60 fps on a console hopefully with the new xbox
@  Zoob : (17 June 2019 - 09:04 PM) I think it's more about personal opinion and not what the RIGHT way to go with the story is or what YOU may want to see. With a franchise that has been in so many peoples hands over the years their is bound to be something YOU wont like, but obiously its made in a way for someone else to enjoy. Take halo 5 for example, I love it. Not so much story wise but I feel the multiplayer is the best out of all halos.
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 02:52 PM) Zeta Halo, and I've said this a billion trillion times now, its history. It was once the location that held The Primordial - the last known Precursor along with Mendicant Bias who was the Precursor/Gravemind's overseer
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 02:51 PM) Location for 1. We're back on a Halo which seems like it should be the obvious destination given the name but is not feasible without a time skip (which is what happened)
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 02:50 PM) Let's talk about things we actually liked about the trailer
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:25 AM) Especially versus Cortana, who cares about him as more than just a weapon, who's offering him some actual, personal fulfilment
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:25 AM) Have Chief finally start questioning his place in the UNSC, the morality of the UNSC, how far his loyalties go when they treat him as expendable and replaceable
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:24 AM) That should have been the core conflict of Halo 5 - have the Created just be a framing device for it, as the Didact was for Halo 4's real story
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:23 AM) And then in Halo 5 - again, you've got a more literal version of it in Blue vs Osiris. Old Spartans vs New Spartans
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:22 AM) You've got a character in Del Rio who treats them both the same way - 'things have changed while you've been away'
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:22 AM) The whole underlying theme of Halo 4 was obsolescence - Cortana literally points it out to Chief, "they don't care about you, they replaced you!"
@  RedStarRocket91 : (17 June 2019 - 10:21 AM) The Spartan-IVs frustrate me in particular because there's so much potential for them to have a strong role in the story
@  Jack Of Harts : (17 June 2019 - 09:27 AM) By the way, what actually happened to the ODSTs? There's no mention of them at all in Halo 4 or 5, especially with Buck now being a Spartan-IV
@  Jack Of Harts : (17 June 2019 - 09:25 AM) I don't see Spartan-IVs as "real Spartans", I see them more as just enhanced ODSTs
@  Azaxx : (17 June 2019 - 09:21 AM) Now without a major overhaul, like ditching the Spartan IV's, high tech domination of Humanity and the lack of emphasis on being the Chief, it's going to be hard for 343i to captivate the core audience who want to be reminded of the glory days of the original trilogy
@  Azaxx : (17 June 2019 - 09:20 AM) That's where I hoped 343i were taking H5 Twin, especially after how they portayed the game in those 'Hunt the Truth' lead up series
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 09:02 AM) More Halo is always good but if we're not doing quality control then what are we doing
@  Drizzy_Dan : (17 June 2019 - 09:00 AM) @RedStarRocket91 Agreement on 100%
@  Zoob : (16 June 2019 - 09:05 PM) I have faith in where the story could be going now. Either way, im happy with MORE Halo.

#393740 Site Poll 104: Obligatory E3 Poll

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 11 June 2019 - 04:46 PM

The trailer did not hit the spots I think they intended to hit with the messages from family and the time lapse showing the pilot's beard growing out. I didn't sense danger or hopelessness in this trailer so I didn't "discover hope" ;)

 

However because it is Halo, I must say I loved that they showed something and props on what the team has done. I just pray to Grim that they have not sacrificed good story-telling for this classic feel they're trying to acquire with the music and art choices.

Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing!




#393672 Site Poll 103: the MCC on PC and You

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 13 March 2019 - 03:37 PM

I don't think 343 should be worried about marketing the Xbox. That's Microsoft's problem. 343 has enough work cut out for them marketing their own products.

 

Great point actually. Would almost be a subtle 'suck it' to Microsoft for pushing harsh deadlines on them for previous titles. You know, if Microsoft didn't make the decision to bring Halo to PC in the first place.

#393669 Site Poll 103: the MCC on PC and You

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 13 March 2019 - 09:02 AM

This is going to be big for Halo. You can distrust 343 still, fine, but you have to give them credit for doing what everyone has asked for. They're bringing Reach back into our lives on current-gen and they're porting it to PC with everything else. It's incredible. 

 

I am big time HYPE. I will NOT be playing on PC. I'm console all the way but like I said, you gotta love it. 

 

Wondering how this will affect Xbox sales though????

#393602 Site Poll 101: Which Armor Variant Do You Want Chief To Wear in Infinite?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 02 January 2019 - 09:31 AM

The new design is the ideal armor image. Some may not like it but it is what peak performance looks like. 

 

A combination of old and new is the best of both worlds. How can it get better?

#393442 Story

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 14 November 2018 - 06:29 PM

I would really like it to be reminiscent of Halo: CE where we are exploring Zeta Halo and we encounter the Flood. I wouldn't mind not having Covenant enemies so long as they aren't Promethean. I think Zeta Halo has a lot of story-telling potential and, if done properly, could tie in a lot of story threads relating to Mendicant Bias, Guilty Spark, and the Primordial.




#393380 Site Poll 98: What's your favourite Halo novel/comic?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 30 October 2018 - 10:54 AM

Man there’s a lot of good stuff to choose from and so much that I own and haven’t read!

Love Melody’s choice it’s up there for me.

I gotta go with Halo: First Strike. The action and storytelling is all there. It’s Blue Team being Blue Team. So imagine how awesome their introduction was in Halo 5 and then imagine a whole novel written about how they handle a mission much bigger than that (awesomeness to scale). We would have been long done for had it not been for Operation First Strike :salute:


#393369 Site Poll 97: Which Alpha-Nine member do you like most?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 24 October 2018 - 04:43 PM

@UNSC Spartan-II ah indeed. I did mean New Blood not the new novel lol thank you good sir.




#393367 Site Poll 97: Which Alpha-Nine member do you like most?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 23 October 2018 - 04:55 PM

My favorite used to be Mickey for his sense of humor and awesome attitude. I was so super disappointed when they made him betray Buck in Bad Blood (fantastic novella). 

 

It is too hard for me to go against Gunny on this one. Buck has transcended past being an "ordinary" human ODST undergone modifications to become a Spartan IV as we all know. His most recent star appearance in Halo 5 just solidifies this decision for me because of his witty one-liners.

 

 

 

Twitter is coming up with some great answers for this. Another good week Spartan, nice. :thumbup:

 

By the way, where is the art from?




#393354 Site Poll 96: Who would replace John-117?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 16 October 2018 - 11:31 AM

I don't think anyone can replace John as the main protagonist of the series. I personally think Halo should take the approach of different view points each time and have their potential novel ideas be full length video games instead.

 

However, to answer this week's great poll, I think I would have to go with Locke. That may sound cliche but being Locke felt pretty cool in Halo 5 and he has a great team to work with already on top of having a small amount of backstory to really develop. I don't think he will ever be as famous as Master Chief but Locke taking over the role of the main protagonist could be written in as Chief ages out or something.




#393337 Site Poll 95: The future of the Reclaimer Saga?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 11 October 2018 - 10:40 AM

When it comes to discussing how many games or episodes or how long we'll be in the Reclaimer Saga, Grim had this to say: "Probably the safest thing is to not really be thinking of it in any '__ Saga' terms anymore. Just more Halo :-)" on Twitter.

 

So it seems plans have changed and we aren't looking at different story arcs but rather one long story and universe that is Halo :D
