I mean, it is Cortana. When Brian Reed said Cortana surviving Halo 4 was planned from the beginning, I'm liable to believe him. Sure, they can toss out a bunch of theories why she's the way she is (and they have), but it's sadly her.
Yes of course, but for me it's not the real Cortana in Halo 5. There's no way. I should have been more precise.
Do you really think they would show that just to hurt us? I don't think it would be a good move, playing with our emotions this way, after the last disaster.Having Cortana be Chief's friend again after her mass murder spree with the Guardians and deception on Genesis would be a bloody disgrace. You don't reward behavior like Cortana's.
Everything in that trailer screams an apology, that they heard us, they know they screwed up with Halo 5 story and a lot of other things.
They can't show a scene that iconic without being her. I'll never forgive something like that.
To be honest, from the day I played Halo 5 I stood by that. I just can't accept that Cortana became "that". That's a disgrace to me.
To be honest I don't know if we can believe anything said about Halo 5. I'm sure we don't want to remember all those marketing lies they threw at us. Something's for sure, there's a lot we don't know about the developement of this game, something happened at some point. There's too many weird things. I was just hoping they would just tell the truth instead of just hiding behind false statements again and again. Something went wrong during Halo 5 developement, I'm sure of it. They can say whatever they want about the story "that we're too dumb to understand", "there's more than that" and so on. In the end .. I'm still searching for that "greatest hunt in video game history".
Hunt the Truth they said. Oh, and they forgot something called Halo 4 and another thing called "Spartan Ops" I think? Wasn't there a new Covenant leader there? Ah yes, he died with one hit in the first cutscene of the game. Right. That guy. Cortana? Halsey? Locke? To me, Halo 5 story is just unacceptable, in every aspects of it.
Liking Halo 4 gameplay and multiplayer or not, I think a lot of us loved the story. I just can't believe they just threw all of it away. I'm just dreaming that they will bring the story back on track, and there's quite some work to do.
