What i meant was, that bungie completly ignored the pre-established lore!
Although the story of reach was great, it completely -Yoink- on the lore. Bungie didn't give a damn about us fans or the lore and they did their thing (imagine if 343 did that nowadays ^^)Wat u mean 4 with multiplayer or 5 with singleplayer?
See, you preface all of your most salient points with "Imagine if 343 did that," to which I respond, "things would look exactly like they do today because they basically are
doing that." The community outrage would be neither heightened, nor mitigated (and honestly, 343 has so many apologists I wonder how much of this hate is actual hate. On any official Halo 5 YouTube video I usually have to go a page or two down before I see a single dissenting opinion - and that guy is almost always getting gang-banged into the ground. Pardon my projection, but I don't think the majority of you actually care what 343 does.
Ok, sry. I was refering to the generic audience. I read comments on Youtube, Amazon, and so on with above said content. I'm kinda new here on this forum so i didn't know that ;)
Reach introduced us to armor mods, which halo 4 was later on hated for. Halo 4 was the successor to Halo Reach and yet there are still people ranting about 343s Halo and at the same time prising halo reach! Don't get me wrong, I loved reach, but these double standards man...Like I said, I've been on this site an entire year. I recognize usernames. What you see doesn't happen. It's different people complaining about different things.
No worries. Yeah the lines in the sand are firmly drawn between titles if you know where to look. Just spend some time here and it'll all make sense.
I can twist Halo's lore to make Chief a lesbian.
What do you mean that cortanas devilry makes no sense? She was almost dead and found the domain which changend her entirely.
Behause some pople said, that halo reach was more military like and the new ones are more like space power ranger, i think it has something to do with the timeline of the story.Precisely. Cortana's devilry in 5 makes no sense if we're raising the stakes of the story. The UNSC is more powerful than ever, and the enemy is a character everyone thought was dead. That's not exactly a fair fight, or even that dramatic for the good guys to be packing heat while the bad guys are literally naked people made of light.
See you have Halo reach - Halo 3 on the one hand were humanity was always at the edge of loosing because the covenant had more advanced technologies and outnumbered humanity on every encounter... and you felt that especially at reach cause you know that you're gonna get screwed and the planet glassed by the end.
On the other hand you have the reclaimer trilogy where humanity won the war and are more advanced in terms of technology. There's no "Sh*t we don't have single chance and were outnumbered by 1:100000" and no depressing feel like in halo reach because there are no "enemies" worth be frightened of. You constantly feel like superman going through enemy lines thinking "well If i die in combat it doesn't make a difference because there are thousands other spartan IV who can kick -Yoink-"
IMO humanity made a too big jump from being on the edge of extinction to "caring the mantle of responsibility" for the galaxy. That's why the reclaimer trilogy feels so different than the original Halo.+1. We could redeem this feeling by making the Human beings antagonistic to Chief, making the now magnificent UNSC the enemy, so that the stakes are still high (like literally every advertisement 343 brought up prior to release made it sound like they would.) But no. That would take creativity.
Doesn't mean there aren't ways that make more narrative sense for a growing and established universe to evolve.
imagine the Shitstorm 343 would get making the Chief go against the UNSC ;)No.
