>>520818087>>520818098W-who do I believe?

>>520818087Makes sense to meHes amalgamation of tons of dead corpses and shitAnd also he survived basically the genocide of the entire galaxy, thats a pretty big sin even if it was for a good cause

>>520817631Cause every Halo retcons the lore and only now do people start to give a shit

>>520817631Even if humans were forerunners, how is gravemind "a monument to their sins"?

>>520817421Do zoomers really what?

>>520818357Forerunners inadvertently, indirectly made the Flood by trying to destroy their creators, the Precursors. That is the sin, and the resultant Flood and the destruction it caused is the monument.

>>520817631He could mean you as in all lifeforms that arent the flood

>>520818087He's referring to the entire forerunner race when talking to John at that point isn't he? Since the Gravemind doesn't exactly restrict himself to modern speech patterns or consider individuals in the same way, being he's a collective of his species, it makes some sense to refer to another as a piece of it's entire species from his side

>>520818332I haven't read a book other than the ones that covers the events before 1 and between 1 and 2 or played a Halo past ODST. What is the scoop on this? The GM survived the ARK firing?>>520818538The forerunners had forerunners? boy am i glad i dropped this.

>>520818345Aren't all retcons post 343 takeover though?

>>520818610Idk if he did or not, but the flood had to have survived the firing otherwise they wouldnt be in the games at all

>>520816892Basically, the line is kino because it gives Chief confidence that the Flood are totally beatable because the species is controlled by a 13 year old edgy school shooter

>>520816892No, it was plagiarism.

>>520818692>>520818610All of the Flood present in the games came from the rings. Flood samples were kept on the rings for research, but broke out for various reasons such as Covenant invasion or failures on the part of their Monitors.

>>520818332>Hes amalgamation of tons of dead corpses and shitHow does that make him a monument to sin? It makes no fucking sense. The writer was randomly struck with something that sounded poetic as fuck and he forced ot into a context that makes no fucking sense because rule of cool.

>>520818610>The forerunners had forerunners? boy am i glad i dropped this.Not only that, but the Forerunner's names for their themselves was literally "Forerunners.">>520818692I think he means the smaller Halo 3 ark, not the giga Ark the forerunners used to purge Precursor space.

>>520818873Murder is sin."I am a monument to all the people you've killed."

>>520818692The rings killed all sentient life. The rings and other forerunner constructs preserved plenty of nonsentient dna and even flood spores for research and eventual reseeding of life into the galaxy for the non-flood entities

>>520818538Was this in H3? Fuck me this sounds stupid.

>>520818951>>520818852And so since they survived they became a big threat once againThus, a monument to the sin of keeping them around

>>520818996I believe it was hinted at in some Halo 3 terminals, but extended lore stuff like books and some of the 343 games go into the ancient history more.

>>520819032even ODST retcons the full destruction of New Mombasa after Regret's slipspace jump

>>520818172he was playing a long con with cortana and got really fucking mad when it backfired

>>520818996I'm pretty sure it's in a book from after bungie left Halo to M$

>>520818996Nope, H4

Just beat Halo 3 again after nearly a decade, and I have to ask; what was Truth's plan? Did he really think the Rings would bring salvation/ascension, or was he actually just planning to wipe out the galaxy?

>>520817096I even think about the achievement a lot. Probably because it took me a while

>>520818919>people only die to murder>flood can't highjack living organisms>flood came to exist because murder is evilFuck you're stupid, and reaching hard.

>>520816892No, autism was "To war"

>>520819257he snapped and started to believe his own lies

>>520818873The flood were freed by the humans and covenant fighting each other on the halo ring, raiding a forerunner research base they thought contained weapons

>>520819273also>all your sins>murder = all sins

>>520819257The change in voice actor makes it hard to tell. Halo 2 Truth would be the kind of guy who would actually lie about not finding the Ark, to keep himself eternally in power over the Covenant. Halo 3 Truth was high off his own supply, and sounds like an actual religious zealot.

>>520819257Truth wanted to light the rings because he thought that would bring them salvation

>>520819632That's actually exactly how I felt about it, too. In 2, he seemed like he was smart and manipulating things so he came out on top, like when he let Mercy get murdered by the Flood. But in 3 he sounds and acts like a total nutcase.

>>520819257he was just nuts because the knowledge of the nature of the rings and about humanity was already known pretty well because of the ai that was in the forerunner dreadnought

>>520817631Well, Humanity helped make the Flood what it was. The Precursors (who came before Forerunners/Humanity) got BTFO by the Forerunners because the Forerunners were salty that the Precursors had named humanity their successors. The surviving Precursors decided to reduce themselves to a Bio-Organic dust and wait to re-assemble themselves once all the aggro had blown over. They stored this dust on automated spaceships.One of these Spaceships crashlanded on a human planet. Humans found this dust and analysed it and found that they couldnt see anything harmful with it but they found that giving it to their favourite pets (some sort of ancient Rabbit things) made their pets more docile and happy.They did this for hundreds of years until the dust had completely changed the biology of the rabbits. The rabbits then mutated; became necrotic zombie things and infected the Humans who went on and infected everywhere else.So yeah, our Sins mainly involved giving Space Crack to our Rabbits. If that isnt worth a monument I dont know what is!

>>520819794>The Halo 3 story was written by a bunch of guys in the middle ground saying: “I want to do it this way but I can’t explain why, and I’m not sure my idea’s better than yours so I’m just going to defend it loudly.” You know, no reasons why, so it’s just a shouting match. But there’s nothing you can do to resolve things. -Jaime GriesemerHalo 3's writing in general was a complete mess. It was better when Microsoft got directly involved and had Bungie on a leash.

Adultery is a din. How is Gravemind a monument to adultery?

>>520819997The issue with Halo 3's writing was that it was meant to be a conclusion game, as in everything wraps up, story be damnedIt's an issue in KH3 as well>>520820082I simply take that as the forerunners adopting humanity to name them as their successorsKind of how like Caesar adopted Augustus to be his successor despite not being related to him directly

>>520820256>The issue with Halo 3's writing was that it was meant to be a conclusion gameThe issue with Halo 3 was the fact that it wasn't supposed to exist in the first place. Bungie wanted to get done with the series ASAP because they didn't want to work on it. Halo 3, ODST, and Reach were all rushed in a way to work on the next series. Halo 2 was made in like a year because they wasted two of them by fucking with a lighting engine.

>>520818357He survived the first firing. Forerunners commited the "sin" of nuking the entire galaxy after letting the Flood grow to the point of being a real threat. They figuratively doomed the galaxy through their inaction and then literally when they fired the Halo Array to erase all life on it, but it was all for nothing. The Gravemind did live, and is the proof of the Forerunners' failure

>>520820229The Gravemind virtually molested Cortana with his logic plague tentacles and made her delete her virginity subroutine.

>>520818087It does make sense in context but the context is pretty goddamn obtuse to get. The Gravemind is the sum of all the accumulated knowledge of everything that current infection wave of Flood have consumed. Add to that the mind of the Precursor who was literally able to redpill the most advanced Forerunner AI into defecting that then also got absorbed into the wider flood consciousness then its entirely plausible that the Gravemind speaks eloquently yet in complete abstract

>>520819943None of this is Bungie canon btw

>>520819943honestly they need to de-bloat the lore, get rid of the ancient races except one set of forerunners that may or may not be human, but were responsible for everything good or ill that happened in the past.

>>520820627Thankfully Halo never was a Bungie series after Microsoft purchased the rights.They made Microsoft employees help write Bungie's dialogue for CE, implement EU stuff, and carried the torch to a studio that was originally meant for marketing.

>>520820516Cortana is not married. Someone who commits a crime is not a "monument" to it. Bill Cosby is not a monument to rape.

>>520820627Well, some of it is. The bare bones of the history is Bungie canon. 343 fleshed it out with their own brand of autism. I mean the whole Forerunner v Humanity then Forerunner V Flood wars were mentioned in the Terminals in Halo 3. You even have Mendicant Bias himself speaking to you via the Terminals.

>>520821648Bungie's halo games can falter due to over ambition and lack of time or polish. That's a better problem to have than 343 just having bad direction and being incompetent.

>>520817074I think the context is different in that Christ died for our sins, framing sinning as something to be avoided when possible and forgiven if not (sins = bad), but the gravemind is a monument, instead marking sins as something that compounds endlessly until finally awesome enough to overwhelm and destroy you (sins = inevitable destruction). Or something.None of the people in charge anymore really give a hot fuck about subtext or even basic philosophy and the original team weren't all that invested in deeper context so I doubt they meant anything other than "spooky cancer worm talks weird isn't trochaic heptameter fucked up haha"

>>520821648Bungie to me simply felt like a company that couldnt quite fathom how popular its game had become and were unprepared and unhappy with the intense level of expectation and hype that followed. This was most obvious with Halo 2 though you have to accept that Halo 2 also had one of the best console shooter multiplayer experiences that have ever existed.It felt like they were a lot more prepared with Halo 3 in terms of development but still couldnt really decide what direction to take the plot until the last moment.

>>520822849>what do you intend to do?Go to another galaxy to keep eating things.

>>520823372OK?

>>520823837He's talking about the entire universe.

>>520823762They thought they had the samples pretty well contained and the Halo Rings had their own defence and were pretty well hidden. And even if containment failed then all that was infected was the Ring as the Flood wouldnt have the means to leave. Its only when other outside forces come into play that their plan is shown to be really weak

>>520823935Go to another universe to keep eating things.

>>520823762The Forerunners had no intention of dying out entirely. They had some places that were shielded from the ring's effects. They had intended to return to the rings once all the shit had blown over and then properly study the Flood to find an actual effective countermeasure that didnt involve nuking the entire galaxy back to the stone age

>>520824162Wasnt it also because they realized their "Mantle of Responsibility" was a failure due to themnot being able to uphold their ideals. So the Precursors came down and said the Humans will be a better replacement. Forerunners said "No fuck you dad" Then started a war resulting the Precursors going mad bad shit like >>520823674describes?

>>520823837i get they are mad at the humans and the forerunners which makes sense, but i dont understand why they would want to assimilate all sentient life in other galaxys as well. sentient life in their galaxy sure they need the numbers but are they really that pissed?

Well it's not all of them >>520823674Just a few extremely ass mad ones.

>>520824430They became Nihilists?

>>520818570never thought of that way, everything is the same for the flood as long as they can consume it

>>520819257I don't think there's really an answer to this. people reacted so poorly (including me) to the ambition and experimentation in halo 2's story that they essentially pulled a 343 and said "well, just make it real fuckin' simple then, like halo ce".It's too bad too, because now that I'm older I see how cool the things they were trying to do with halo 2 were. I don't feel the same way about 343's ambitions, all the new lore is pants-on-head

>>520822010OG halo actually had a lot of biblical references, so it wouldn't surprise me if they were being philosophical with it. And the gravemind being a monument to sin makes a lot of sense, being a sign of Humans/forerunners failure to contain it in both the present and the past. Sin is ultimately failure, doing what is wrong, so it makes sense. Failure = spawn of a gravemind. This of course is also ignoring the fact that the Gravemind/flood in general is an amalgamation of sentience, so it could in a more literal sense be an embodiment of the evil of mankind/other ayys.

It feels like when people start to realize a series has zero fucking redeeming qualities besides shooting shit they start to pretend they cared about other shit like the story or the art. Sometimes they even pretend that the story was good the whole time and was the reason for the game being so popular. Look at any thread pre-2008~ and EVERYONE is shitting on Halo's story, even Halo fans were saying "the story was shit but the game is fun". This was early 2000's consolefags too where they had zero fucking standards and no expectations for a compelling story.I see this a lot with other games too. In the DOOM 2016 and Eternal people started to pretend the new stories were shit compared to the older ones (as if you can't fucking skip the cutscenes anyway) and the stupid ass preface wall of text from the classic game was better. Back when crysis 3 came out people started to pretend the story for it "ruined" it and the older games somehow had a better story and characters. Same goes for Tomb Raider, Destiny 2, Call of Duty, Borderlands, even the god damn Battlefield games that started as a multiplayer only series has these retards.Go read a book you stupid fucks

>>520831525It is literally just an asset flip of Halo: Reach put on top of CE's framework (and not even done very well). It's amazing that they were allowed to charge full price for what seems like a total conversion mod you could get for free off ModDB.

>>520831598>Gravemind was only using Chief/Arby to stop the rings from firing and killing his hivemind again.Halo Target sentient beings, things that have feelings, the Inferi sententia doesnt have feelings.

Do you know how many Tolkienesque fanfics there are for MLP that are over 300,000 words long? It will make you want to gouge your eyes out.Halo's story fucking sucks. It's annoying as hell when I see these redditors bring up the story as the #1 complaint with the 343 games and completely drown out other shit like campaign map layouts, AI, and pacing stuff. It obfuscates any of the legitimate issues people have with them in favor of this bizzare pissing contest over which turbo-sperg is best at pretending the shit stories are deeper than they really are. ----> >>520822010 >>520820082 >>520820256

>>520832901>anything with a turbo-sperg fanbase.So every game on Holla Forums?

>>520832486He would not be killed if the rings went off. The rings have ZERO effect on it. The plan is to cause the physical destruction of Halo to cause the graveminds physical destruction.The Array kills the flood food so robots and shit can go out and kill the rest of the flood. With no way to produce new flood you can eradicate the galaxy with physical destruction. The Flood that exists on Halo, the infection forms, and it's facilities for study had been there since the last outbreak. They dead dont die unless you physically destroy them.

>>520832901honestly yeah, it is annoying as fuck to see threads criticizing 343's game design devolve into autistic shitflinging fights about the fucking lore of all things

>>520832764Thats where youre wrong kiddo.Google Does Halo kill the Flood.Sentient life only. It doesnt target dead things without feelings. The infection forms that started the outbreak on 04/Delta were there since the last outbreak.

>>520833348>The plan is to cause the physical destruction of HaloThat was Cortana's plan to take out the Flood on the Ark, yes. But the Gravemind temporarily teamed up with Arby 'n' the Chief to stop Truth, because Truth wanted to fire ALL the Halos, which would wipe out all of the Flood's food and starve them.

The remaining floor spores/infection forms were from containment areas made too study the parasite.The Rings kill off most life and this likely includes higher tiers of flood, flood spores would survive though. Regardless, it would be impossible for the flood to survive that long even if it didn't kill them, hence why the Halos "Starve them out"

Almost every line of rhyme he spouts off has no fucking payoff, it's just cringey shit they though sounded cool. Cortana just pulling the name Gravemind out of her ass makes me laugh every time.

>>520818345This, even in Halo 1 they say the Covenant just think Halo is a super weapon, yet in tow they think it's a gate to heaven. Bungie was literally just making shit up as they went.

>>520834685Sentience just means something that can react to outside stimuli. Its an extremely broad term that gravemind easily falls under.

>>520834685The Gravemind can get angry, didn't you play Halo 3

>>520834558>the Covenant just think Halo is a super weaponNo they dont.They have no idea what it actually is. They consider it a tool of ascension. They think the Forerunners used it to ascend to some higher plane of existence, not off themselves.The prophets refuse to believe Halo is a weapon straight up until they die. Did you pay attention at all?

>>520834357The funniest part is how tartarus is sent to activate Delta Halo while one of the Prophets is simultaneously headed towards earth (within its kill zone) Braindead writing.

>>520833702After the Halo array was fired:>It is best that our crews perished now; because the battle that is about to ensue would have driven them mad.Coolest AI

>>520834685Sentience does not imply feeling you fucking idiot. Sociopaths/Insane people who do not feel things are still sentient.

>>520834164ESL, maybe? The nuance of "feelings" and sentience generally don't always imply the same thing. "To feel" and "feeling" can have very diverse meanings, and when someone describes an entity as sentient, they probably don't simply mean one of those ranges. When you say "has feelings" you are using a colloquialism (whether you realize it or not). While one would assume that something with feelings would also be sentient, it does not necessarily stand to reason that the reverse would be true. So, for a native English speaker, "having feelings" would be an awkward or unnatural choice of words for describing sentience. I hope that helps!

>>520833584>Halo array doesn't kill beings that don't have feelingsSo you're saying that I'd survive the Halo array? Cool

>>520836104You are making up your own standard for sentience. Stop coping. Psychopaths and sociopaths are sentient, they cannot feel emotion.

>>520835323>Sociopaths/InsaneBeing a sociopath is not being able to understand others feelings. Not that you dont have feelings. What the fuck are you even getting at? Did I ever say sociopaths arent sentient?fucking el em ayyyyyyy OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

>>520836359I agree with you however that's not a good example to use. Psychopaths and sociopaths do feel emotion, they just have no empathy, or rather when they do its inward empathy rather than outward. So they will genuinely feel sad and cry if they feel bad for themselves but they will never feel sad for someone else.

>>520836712Ok fine, but the gravemind can still feel things. It is an intelligent creature once it reaches that state.

>>520822959Imagine coping this hard.

>>520830732I thought it was referring to how it was made of all the biomass of fallen Covenant and human soldiers, fighting over a lie. Though I guess the Gravemind on Installation 05 had been around long before either factions arrived, so it doesn't really make sense.

>>520838526Wellll.Humans came into contact with Precursor dust aboard automated ships, deemed it harmless, and produced docile behavior and some physical changes.A few centuries of use later the animals they used the dust on mutated physically into the flood, killing it's host. The flood then is thought to have retreated out of the galaxy.Humans began trying to deal with the infection. Humans, Forerunners, the prophet race of aliens, had mingled and lived peacefully. When the outbreak occured Forerunner ships were infected, the humans opted the just destroy the ships without warning sparking a war between the Humans and Forerunners. Initially the Forerunners thought the Flood was a ploy, it wasnt until they came into contact with it that Forerunner leadership knew it was real. The general population considered it a diversion from Humanities true intentions of war.After a bit Humanity came in contact with the Primordial, which they learned the Origin of the flood, that the Forerunners fought a war thousands of years prior against a race that chose Humanity to lead them, despite nurturing the Forerunners into what they were. The Forerunners felt slighted.Forerunners attacked Charum Hakkor, the center of the Human empire and found the Primordial. The Primordial was eventually killed, deemed no one worthy of the mantle, and that all would be one with the flood, in harmony, or something. It's conscience merged with the flood groupmind, the groupmind using the little processing power the dead have, together, to work in unison. When the Primordial Merged, it gained control over the groupmind, making it the Gravemind, or something.tl;dr Humans are responsible for the capture of the last of a species at aroune 100,000 bce, annihilated, by the forerunners millions of years prior, and then millions of years later, found by the same species, and then killed, with no help from anyone. A sin on everyones part.

>>520847668Every Halo game is designed around and tested on Heroic and then down/up-scaled to easy/legendary appropriately. Halo 2 was designed around easy and was never tested on legendary.Elites can rapid fire their plasma rifles and kill within 6 shots, this means a TTK on full health Chief of UNDER ONE SECOND with a gun that is essentially hitscan at closer ranges. There are dozens of unavoidable deaths scattered around every level, completely RNG checkpoints. There's a section on Regret where you NEED to die 6-7 times in a row in order to get the good AI spawn that's actually possible to survive. This shit design is made worse by the fact that half of the game takes place in tunnel environments or small rooms with little to no cover. You have to know where the enemies are half of the time to make it through an area. Contrast this with CE where you were given time to plan your approach and change tactics on the fly.Bungie sort of understood their mistake in Halo 3, but their solution was just to make the whole game one big gay ass vehicle section.

>>520821648It's actually fucking hilarious how similar the development of both Halo and Metroid Prime were. Complete and utter fucking messes that produced a masterpiece trilogy.

>>520852006>most successful trollTruly. That one battle where the Forerunners were baited into bringing their badass fleets, only for the Flood to activate a captured Halo, and then these empty ships were turned as further bait was kino as fuck.Not to mention all the continuous vicious mind rapes the Flood projected into the Forerunner leaderships.

>>520816892It was a line they came up with before they even made the game and they never really managed to justify it.

>>5208515394 doesn't really retcon/abandon any of this though. The terminal videos are pretty good.

>>520852621I do see your point but the galaxy did reset technologically and biologically, at the height of the Forerunner empire they had Dyson Spheres and made the Halo Array, having fuck off level ships doesn't seem that strange to me.

>>520852006>had to live in a planet full of stuff forerunners filled to prevent their further advancementI like this part. The humans had to continually 'sing' certain songs (probably frequencies) from specialised devices to even travel their oceans, otherwise sea monsters would sink them, thus limiting their ability to network.

>>520852439Other than Retro Studios being a complete mess until Nintendo stepped in and Echoes having a very short dev time, what else happened with the Prime trilogy?

>>520852439Yeah except Metroid Prime actually has a good singleplayer somehow. Halo is a multiplayer game first and foremost since CE.

>>520852816I'm more annoyed we saw crazy Didact rather than tragic hero Didact.

>>520852864This. The Forerunners think they're hot shit, making and controlling suns, leeching off microuniverses for their energy, devolving and controlling other beings...then God comes back and stomps them all.

>>520852006I sincerely hope the trilogy doesn't get adapted into games, or anything else. 343 would just oversimplify it.>primordial slowly changing everythingGreat part. Original Didact slowly seeing the universe growing to hate him, Master Builder being taunted by his wife and children's memories being corrupted by the Flood, and the Librarian having to repeatedly reconsider whether the Forerunners should've been completely erased instead.

>>520853515No Elites, no problems

>>520820256>>520821110>>520846638Imagine caring about KH story lmao

>>520853556Yeah, that's probably it. Brutes aren't nearly as tanky or agile, and they're pretty much a free kill as soon as you crack their armor. In 2 especially, it feels like you have to cheese Elites with plasma pistols, otherwise you'll run out of ammo before you even put a dent in them.

>>520852983I think potentially he was going to get a second game but 343 abandoned him as a villain because of reddit complaining about him or something. He's more boring than insane in 4. Just a salty guy that still wants to follow the mantle despite being forever lonely.

What is the most feasible difficulty to reach score and time pars on? Preferably on the same difficulty.

>>520854384Killing space niggers and commies

Just finished CE for the first time. Some of the missions were good (Truth and Reconciliation, Silent Cartographer, 343 Guilty Spark and Keyes). But, overall, the game was pretty average. Is 2 better?

>>520816892No, the only way the flood can spread is through a highly populated species. The flood gains power through people fucking. That's what he means by sin.

>>520816963He's quite fucking big, that's just the brain.

>>520854475I like 2 more, but there were times, especially later on, when I really felt like I was forced to use shitty weapons.

>>520843761>he couldn't simply forgive and just not send the majority of his creation to hell without a blood sacrificeIt's not about the blood sacrifice, it's about taking on the responsibilities of sin. You've probably said things like 'It's God's fault that evil and sin even exist in the first place!' Well, you're right. And so, He came down to live as a human, to take personal responsibility for every single sin that has ever been committed by every single human to ever live, past present and future.>but then why did he sacrifice himself?Because the price of sin is death, and not just physical death, but spiritual death too. Sin and death are inseparable, because to sin is to turn away from God, who is the source of life itself.That's why Christians say that Christ died for your sins, he died and payed the debt of death that sin brings, so that you wouldn't have to.

Why is the arbiter such a docile, obsequious faggot in 3? That's the only part I hated about it.

Space Man hitches a ride back to earth then jumps off while in orbit for some reason.Space Man and Holy Warrior then go to Jesus Christ rocket launcher mega that controls all 7 of the other ones and assassinate Pope 3 to kill religion then they blow up Jesus Christ rocket launcher from the first game again to cancel Little Shop of Horrors.

>>520854951the forerunners hated humanity because they were going to receive the mantle instead

>>5208544752 has higher highs, but on the other hand the mission structures and level design can wear thin, with many areas in a level looking similar to rooms earlier on (in CE this was only really an issue with the Library and some forerunner rooms in Assault on the Control Room).With the exception of the first level, every mission of the campaign in Halo 2 is a "half-level", so essentially every 2 missions in a row do not have a change of scenery.

Only on my latest playthrough did I learn that Brute Chieftans can use Invincibility powerups. I always wondered why those guys were so insanely tanky compared to the other types of Brute.

King Mad dunks on the UNSC Really Big, Space Man, and some other research base with the Robo-Human Making Machine but it doesn't turn Space Man into an Obnoxious Robo-Human because King Mad's wife has a crush on Space Man despite herself being dead for 100,000 years and Space Man is also the reincarnation of King Not-Mad, King Mad's not evil doppelganger.Space Man Not-Mad then plays Star Fox to chase King Mad, kills him but not really he doesn't until a later comic story, and 2D waifu blows up because robo menopause finally got her.In Halo 5 you play as Space CIA man trying to get Space Man Not-Mad back on Earth who is chasing the Ghost of his 2D Waifu but turns out she's not a ghost she's evil and then the game ends after she takes over the galaxy.

>>520860389i agree with most of that but i think the best levels were the ones that split the difference and had multiple large arenas with multiple routes through them and non linear objectives

>>520859065didn't ce repeat like 4 of it's levels but just made it rundown and added flood?

>>520860389CE's repetition came from its textures and models. The actual layouts of the rooms are completely different for each mission. In CE it's a game reskinned to look like a real place, 2 rehashes the same designs over and over again and it feels like a real place thrown into a game with absolutely zero consideration put into how it will play.

The original Cortana level was planned to been much more clearly set within High Charity, concepts included fighting in then mausoleum of Flood infected Arbiters, and Gravemind chasing Chief/Cortana as they made their escape on a Scrab piloted by Cortana.>Everything you said about the ArbiterAgreed.A lot of these issues I speculate are due to Joe Staten not being as involved with Halo 3, he was the most notable major player that was missing from that game's production, since he was down in New Zealand working on the Halo movie/Halo: Chronicles but that was a whole other mess.

>>520862174You could've had a sequence where you would've haf to ram him with a pelican to buy time or SOMETHINGThe fucket doesn't even show up

>>520862238>>520862323it didn't

>>520855863Durandal could rape most of 40k if he had his ship

>>520860557What makes CE so good is that the sandbox was so great. Halo 2 has similar AI, slightly shittier weapons (nades suck ass in H2, smg sucks ass, and FUCK hitscan carbines as an enemy weapon), but it's primary problem, and what it truly lacks are good maps. And good map design has absolutely nothing to do with being "open-ended" or "massive" at all. These words are meaningless when making a fun single player map. A map can be more open and STILL be worse than a map that is essentially a series of just tunnels and rooms (imagine making a DOOM wad). Also a big problem with 2 is that even when the game opens up, you still get blocked by dozens of random pillars or some stupid ass car/forklift sitting in the middle of the map.It's hard to explain with just pictures, but just imagine how shittier it would be to just throw a bunch of enemies on top pic, vs how much more fun it would be to do the same in the bottom pic. CE's map design promotes offensive play. You can constantly push/nade/shoot/melee, and when you need to charge your shields you always have cover to peek from while still being aggressive.

>>520860632Not at all. The only level that repeats is two betrayals technically, however it plays completely different forwards and backwards.

>>520862247>Also thatNo. ONLY that. Halo 2 was only successful because of its multiplayer. Campaign was pure garbage.

>>520861049The Arbiter and The Oracle constantly use the same stupid ass rooms over and over again throughout. The latter being the worst offender.

>>520861523Read the stupid fucking books you dumb pig

>>520862405Not getting the intended Cortana level in the final game is definitely a huge disappointment, mainly for me because of how non-High Charity it felt from just being them salvaging what they could from Floodgate.

>>520863413>you have to read the books for the games to not be so retarded.Fuck you and everyone who thinks like you faggot

>>520862551It did though, that's why things changed with 3.>>520863253This, would have been forgotten if it wasn't for multiplayer.

>>520863108Halo 2 feels a lot like a really bad Custom Edition .map.

>>520816892It made sense before they had retconned the humans=forerunners plot.

If only Truth kept his Halo 2 voice and character. It never truly feels like we defeated that manipulator, due to suddenly being swapped out for Halo 3 Truth who talks like an old senile guy.

>>520863108you said nothing with this

>>520854389Because once an explanation is given it can easily be scrutinized and proven how shitty of an explanation it is.

So... in Infinite, we have to deal with Halo Wars 2 Monke for... some reason?And also apparently Cortana is upset because she never got Chief's chief.

>>520854389because so much of our life is unknown and just theory

>>520866196Yes

>>520839945I do this for Warhammer 40,000Might be an Aspergers thing

Cortana says she has a solution for the Flood on the Ark, but this is before Gravemind and his buddies decide to drive High Charity out there. Was there something I missed or what?

>>520866382Cool, I haven't played any of them since Reach.

>>520866686Cortana's message doubled as away to trick Gravemind into hauling ass to the Ark to try and stop what the solution might be, baiting him into being in the new Halo's range.

>>520823516Based

Who here is actually going to play Infinite and/or buy a sexbox? I have a hard time believing this many people are interested.

>>520867996I'll buy Infinite since it'll be on Steam. No way in hell I'd buy a SeX for it, though.

I don't remember. I can't bring myself to care about the campaigns as an adult enough to beat any of them. I just want to play multiplayer. And I don't think infection is fun anymore. Infection is way too autistic.

>>520867996Me, will get a Series X for it and Halo 5.

Reminder people actually hated Gravemind when 2 launched.

>>520869681I remember that but I can't figure out why we like him now.

>>520869681Yeah, he was a plothole while looking like venus flytrap that Bungie didn't name until Cortana just said his name at random.

>>520869825His name was the very next mission after you met him.

>>520865658Halo 2 shit weapons, hitscan enemies force you to fight further away and stay within cover rather than strafing in a fight, faster projectile speeds promotes same bullshit, Elites kill in .5 seconds on legendary and 1hk melee. Cover shooter map layout, very little to no verticality.Halo CE, fun weapons, spread and slow projectiles allow for close combat, going for a melee isn't fucking worthless anymore, arena maps allow for lots of cover and aggressive play, never forced to hold a position and fight against waves of enemies, enemy don't infinitely respawn like they do in 2.

>>520869756cuz he has epic reddit voice and he raps xD

>>520869997he's unaware

>>520869868It wasn't explained until later though.

>>520855349-- are literal space niggers.

>>520869756we didn't know how much worse it could get 10+ years down the road at the time

>>520853515>Playing heroic mode. You weren't even playing Halo, sissy-bitch.

>>520858339>Despite only have earth left Humanity somehow managed to become a galactic superpower in 5 years,I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH THIS PISSES ME OFF. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH.

>>520870506The games were designed around Heroic. That's literally what Bungie said themselves. They only added in Legendary for retards who thought that bullet sponges and arbitrary 1HKO's make a game better.

>>520870575When was this ever implied?

>>520870651Keeps casuals where they belong.

>>520839945I do this when I play Factorio, fuck you.
