The thing with the Flood though is they always find a way. All they need is one spore and the fight for survival begins again, they're one of those enemies that you can never actually beat, you just survive until the next time.munkeemeaty wrote:I agree that bringing The Flood back would be great gameplay-wise but it would make everything we did in Halo 3 meaningless as it would be for them to just come back in infinite. This is why everyone got so pissed over Cortana being the bad guy, because we did so much to help her in the og trilogy that it made it seem like an unwarranted betrayalFully Skully wrote:Yes. With the covenant basically gone and the banished busy on the ark, we need another faction to fight besides prometheans. I'm getting sick of prometheans, they need a big upgrade and adding the flood will bring variety and contrast them very well.
Man I hope they explain why Cortana has gone bad. Her rampancy in H4 is a good start but there needs to be more. Is she being manipulated? Has someone altered her somehow? Is that actually the Cortana we knew? Is she infected with something? I'm not buying the reasons she states in H5 but if that's actually all there is to it... yikes.
