Okay... where to begin.
Okay, will start with Halo Anniversary. I loved Combat Evolved. Its still my favourite. Yes, even over Reach. And this is totally just a personal thing, but I DON'T want to see it remastered with the Reach graphics. I have my reasons. I loved Combat Evolves special effects over any of the Halo games that came afterwards. There was more impact, where as the newer games went all pretty and lost almost all effect in the process. Seriously, chuck a frag into a group of a dozen Flood. Ya see that? Ya see how the explosion is a mushroom cloud, how rubble is kicked up, and how there's shredded ribbons of rotting flesh? You don't get that in Halo 2, or 3, or ODST, or Reach... you get fairy magic.
Next, the Assault Rifle... wtf guys? x.x How can you keep fucking that one gun up? Its like your TRYING to ruin it.
And now, Halo 4... I'm actually excited that someone else is doing it. Face it, Halo is stale, and a fresh take on it is really what we need. I was kind of hoping we'd get a third person shooter, but I doubt it. Another thing is the rumour that Halo 4 is actually the first Marathon game. Oh yes, there's been talk of a link between Halo and Marathon for years now. Go play Durandel. Check out your hands. Looks awfully familiar, huh?
One thing I'm calling bullshit on, though... Chief wakes up and just leaps into action. No >.> That does not happen. Even someone whose entire body has spent a life time under intensive drugging and medical procedures, not to mention the most downright brutal military training (fuck, Spartans have armoured bones... they're like Wolverine) to make them the most fearless, steel nerved sons of bitches possible do NOT just wake up full of energy from extended cryostasis.
I know what your saying, Chief was up and kicking ass in The Pillar of Autumn... well, that was a short trip. That wasn't even cryo stasis, that was a cryo NAP, and if you read the book, you'd know even that was enough to make him feel pretty sluggish for a moment. So unless his cryo pod in the end of Halo 3 just happened to be right next to whatever this planet or ship is, Chief is going to be so muffed up he wouldn't be able to climb out of the thing for at least a few minutes. I don't know how long he was in there, but like I said, not even a Spartan can handle extended cryo. When he was freezing himself, both him and Cortana knew that chances were he would be crippled or dead if anyone ever did wake him up. He's not guna just fly out alert and ready.
Thats my rant over...
