Pause at 1:12 I already see two major errors.Fictionally: You realize that lots of tech is prototyped YEARS in advance, right?
1. Samuel can be seen wearing CQB. The CQB armor variant was not developed until after the Battle of Jericho VII which took place in 2535. Thats 10 years after this scene.
2. Samuel is also seen wielding a Battle Rifle. Not only was the BR we know today not developed yet(Outside of a few prototypes such as the XBR-55, but why would the Spartans have access to that?) but the BR he is holding is the BR-85, a weapon that was not developed until late in the Covenant War almost 30 years later and based on the data from the BR-55 and BR-55HB which didn't even exist yet.
3. We also see later in the trailer a brief flash of Linda in ARGUS-class Mjolnir, which to my knowledge didn't exist yet either.
Not in the anime method.
Anime method meaning actually seeing combat.
Quote:Practically: Sometimes you make decisions based on the need to make relateable connections. Every once in a while that might not jive with random scattered details that were "preestablished." It's not remotely egregious enough to not be able to enjoy the whole piece because of it lol. Embrace the details when they line up (which they usually do), and don't fret the ones that don't necessarily do so exactly how you would want it to (as well as assume there is always some sort of reason for why it was done that way).
Marketing did it's testing with people who know absolutely NOTHING about the franchise so to "synergize" the product must look exactly like the current one being sold otherwise the average human brain cannot make the leap and connect the different products with each other even when the title of both product is the same, Halo, and the description of both product describe the same exact universe.
This is why i truly hate marketing.
Because a Halo CG movie needs to be tested with soccer moms....
Please, having the old Grunts, the old elites, the old armor was not going to confuse anyone but a 5 year old that somehow got he ability to drive himself to store and have money to attempt to buy a movie. Seriously.
Anyway, yeah, i dont like that they stayed with the 343 so much that even the female Mjolnir armor looks different than the male one.
At that time the average person was saying that you couldn't tell female spartans from male spartans apart. And from the vid they clearly have different armors that anyone could pick out quickly.
