  1. But see that's just it; Palmer acts pretty much like any other Commanding Officer. Better than many drill sergeants. The Spartan IV's act like the Marines and ODST that they were sourced from, even in past Halo games. I understand, but I...

  2. (And to be frank, a lot of this is to be blamed on the writing and plot of New Blood; ultimately if it's needed for the story it's going to happen. But, from a Universe standpoint the UNSC did everything right, and this was just an unfortunate...

  3. Yes, he did; I had forgotten about Rudolf Schein. Important to note, however, that he was a member of the second class of Spartan IV's that were opened up to enlistment, rather than recruitment. His military career was spotless, and his affiliation...

  4. Somewhat covered up above; the second class of Spartan IV's were not recruited so strictly as the first class. As such, nepotism - especially in the form of recommendation from two Generals - would not be the worst thing in the world. That, and...

  5. I think people are quick to downplay the SIV's as wannabe's, or cocky. But havent they earned that? During the Human-Covenant War, and subsequent Flood uprising, the Spartans were, after considerable declassification, admired by those serving in...

  8. I don't know about arrogance but Spartan Ops didn't do a very good job of portraying Spartan 4s in a positive light. As with a lot of things, I think this comes down to opinion. I personally thought it did just fine. A lot of people don't...

  9. Here is the aforementioned tweet. And yes, Silent Storm's opening chapter certainly shows off a degree of their physical strength. To restate the conditions, Blue Team holds fast against 30 Gs of acceleration in the slingshot manoeuvre by...

  10. I disagree, there is nothing objective about that paragraph. The fact that it is still being debated to this day is proof enough of that. On that specific point I am going to have to agree to disagree. That said it is nice to see that you have brought...
