    Bah. One Spartan-II is worth a squad or Republic Commandos. I'd pit John-117 against ten of those wannabe Mandos and he'd still come out on top.

    I would pit John-117 and Linda-058 against the entire Special Ops Brigade and they would probably come out on top.

    "Probably?" I think you're underestimating their chances. John would be shooting and fragging circles around them while Linda snipes their heads off, blindfolded, and banking shots.

    I said probably because its 10,000 to 2, if we're going with the Special Ops Brigade at full strength, not because I don't think they could do it.

    I call those good odds, for a Spartan. :p

    I was really hoping that would be an IGN video because that seemed like an IGN thing to do :p

    That guy said "reveal" way too much.

    Looking forward to this. Hopefully Halsey will play a big role in this one, per the set-up in Spartan Ops. I also fully expect John to desert, which should change the tone of the game somewhat. Maybe it can be more open than Halo 4.

    I wonder if the other blue Spartan is this kid DeMarco from Majestic.

    Several important 343i people have said he is a completely new character, and that wouldn't be possible anyway due to what happened to him in Halo: Escalation.

    Personally, I think that John is going to go rogue to find Halsey (to bring back Cortana), but then finds out she been "kidnapped". Meanwhile the ONI spartan is hunting down chief to return him to the UNCS as he is UNSC property. After the first or second meeting of the two the ONI spartan will come to the realization that the UNSC still has a lot of dirty secrets and join chief.

    Let's see if my prediction will come true.

    Can't say I follow any of the Halo fiction anymore. So what exactly happened to him?

    As I understand it,
    DeMarco died in Halo: Escalation
    though I don't really keep up with everything either, I haven't got around to reading the first six novels.

    Truth be told, why bother reading them? I see HALO EU as irrelevant as SW EU: both can be rendered non canon/legend/infinity by the showrunners. I thought REACH taught as all that lesson. :p

    See, I don't think I will have any problems with Halo: Reach vs The Fall of Reach, though I have already played and enjoyed Reach, it is probably my least favorite Halo for some reason.

    Halo 4 is actually one of my most favorite alongside Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST, though I am perhaps not the best judge of Halo since I only really play the campaigns.

    Halo 4 is my favourite campaign, followed by Reach. Whoops. :p

    The original's campaign was a masterpiece of it's time, but in retrospect is actually quite repetitive. Three of the ten levels are backtracking through a previous level. I felt that Halo 4 lacked a little in variety too, but it made up for it with having the best story by far. Halo 3 and Reach were incredibly varied in their level design, and I love the opposing tones of both. 3 is very upbeat, epic, while Reach is very somber, desperate.

    I have yet to have the pleasure of playing Halo 2, but it seems that will be happening this fall.

    I don't hate Halo: Reach, I just find the DMR being the most viable weapon and the Assault Rifle being underpowered to be irritating, to the point Firefight and the replayability of the campaign are basically the only reason I still play it. Halo 4 is short and rather linear, but I love Dawn and Requiem and the weapons just feel right. If Halo 4 had kept Firefight and brought back the Plasma Launcher, Needle Rifle, and Sentinel Beam to round out the Covenant and Forerunner arsenals, it would probably be my most favorite Halo. Halo 3: ODST was my gateway to Halo and was probably the perfect storm for convincing me to give Halo 3 a second look, primarily due to the Firefly boys and Tricia Helfer. I actually briefly played Halo 3 the day after it was released, when someone brought it to school and several people including myself took turns playing Sierra 117 on a projector, but I didn't end up with a 360 and Halo 3: ODST until several years later.

    Yeah, I just hope Halo 2 Anniversary ends up on the 360, otherwise I may not get to play it for a long time.

    I love Halo but Microsoft has scared me off for at least 1 generation. Halo Reach was my favourite Halo game(other than maybe 2) but there is nothing I hate more than Armor lock.
    The only way I can see myself playing this game is if its not exclusive to the One, which is improbable. Oh well.

    I am not very thrilled by the Xbox One either, to the point I probably won't even worry about Halo 5: Guardians until I can get a job and the Xbox One party system is up to the standards of the 360, not that I really know that much about such things. I am simply not getting an Xbox One without the full experience of Live, and probably only after I have thoroughly experienced Live on the 360.
