I dont like the new design because in my opinion it just doesnt make sense for a hologram AI to make those changes. I also am not a fan on the looks it's just not what I think of master chief wearing when I think about it. I always imagine him in the iconic Mark VI bungie designed. I think Bungie got the look perfect with their design of mark VI. I'm also really hoping they change the elites back to the classic design. What they have now are just big hulking beasts that stumble around the battlefield.
This is the stupidest and lamest move made by 343 I've ever seen.Can you elaborate? Do you mean their initial redesign in H4/H5? Or their recent redesign in the Infinite trailer? I personally love the new look of Gen 3, but I'm interested to hear why people don't like it.
While the main reason for the change was just a different art style (it is still the Mark VI), apparently Frankie hinted at there being nanomachines on-board the Forward Unto Dawn.Yeah I remember him saying something that, and if I recall correctly, it was a justification added after the fact when people pointed out that Cortana wouldn't be capable of making physical changes to the armor.
I definitely hear ya, and I'm a big fan of the old Chief designs that had him a little slimmer. When 343 gave him a massive, hulking suit of armor, it felt like a step backwards in technology. Almost like going from a sleek and simple smart phone to an old Nokia brick phone. When they went from small to big, it made me ask "why would the more advanced suit be bigger than the less advanced suit?"
But with the new Gen 3 design, I think it served to mesh the two approaches fairly well. The armor is simpler in appearance yet retains the bulkier look of the H4/H5 armor. While I would prefer we just go straight back to the old style, I can appreciate 343 trying to balance the preferences of a very diverse fan base.
