Author warring is great, isn't it?

Also, how the fuck is "stop treating me like I'm Hitler for not wanting to die for saving the human race" a philosophical debate?

Guys, this has been a fun ride, seriously. Even if the comic has a really shitty ending, these storytimes made it worthwhile. Thank you guys for reading.
>>
>>77824681
yes, im reading this terrible, terrible, shlock.
>>
>>77824814
And not a single ounce of her resentment or frustration is a plot point, in fact, Halsey is just kinda...working with the UNSC/ONI/Spartans again, which they kinda gloss over
>>
>>77824345
This was the only good part of this whole arc.
>>
>>77824746
I should not have read that.
>>
>>77824948
It's shown in a trailer, so you probably already know, if you've been interested in the game
>>
>>77825009
I keep my eye off of as many trailers as I could, except for cinematic ones. I wanted to avoid as many spoilers as I could.
I knew it was gonna happen though, pretty obvious.
>>
>>77824874
Why were people mad at a literal savior of humanity again?
>>
>>77825134
Because ONI said she was a bad person, despite the Spartan thing?
I don't know, I think the extent of what we know is that interrogation from the start of 4, but there's no reason really given for it
>>
>>77825197
But all the bad things were literally, no hyperbole, necessary to save humanity.
>>
>>77825092
It literally happens at the end of the very first level, and it's telegraphed as fuck.
>>
>>77824746
>only to go out in a cutscene like a bitch
It's a travesty. I can believe 343 would do that, but it still really pisses me off.
>>
>>77825273

It's because people are generally hypocrites. They want to be saved but don't want to forgive those of what it takes to save them. And they don't want to admit it took, literally, sacrificing children to do it and they're grateful it happened.
>>
>>77825273
Yeah, I think that's what her case is, but again, this isn't really mentioned or talked about in 5, she's just kinda there
>>77825464
Well, it is the same company that regulated the first in-game appearance of Blue Team to 3 fucking missions, so not much can be expected
>>
At least one good thing that did come of this comic is Ayit 'Sevi. He's pretty neat. And cute.
>>
>>77825517
>Well, it is the same company that regulated the first in-game appearance of Blue Team to 3 fucking missions, so not much can be expected
Yeah, that was annoying as well. A big problem besides Jul dying in the first place comes from this comic. Since Sali escaped with a good portion of Jul's firepower, 343 now has a way to bring back the Covenant to fight against again. And the whole reason I assume Jul died was so they could finally get rid of the "Covenant" once and for all. If Sali comes back, it'd make Jul's death completely meaningless.

There are literally hundreds of warlord factions, dude. Nyon's just a small fish in a big pool.

I don't know what I was expecting.
>>
>>77827836
>343
Why did you expect anything in the first place?
>>
>>77827914
I don't know.

Personally I think that 343i is doing pretty damn well gameplay wise but holy fucking shit their writers are awful.
>>
>>77827976
They’re doing great with the novels.
>>
>>77828784
>they

I've never really attributed the work of the novel writers to either Bungie or 343i because neither of them ever did much with the material.

Hell Bungie took The Fall of Reach and went "nope, that's not what happened", meanwhile 343i has all these cool fucking Forerunner books that they won't work into the games Unless you hunt really hard for connections like the fact that Cortana has basically been infected with a logic virus by connecting to the Domain, due to Precursor fuckery.

Is there an archive where I can find all the Halo, Mass Effect comics?

What are some other good space adventure titles?
>>
>>77830098
You can find all the Escalation comics on Viewcomic.com, and there might be some Mass Effect comics too.

As for any others, you might try SaGa, but that's more drama-based.
>>
>>77827976

The analogy I use with the games at this point is "Halo 5 is an exceptional, gifted, and talented child, and 343 are neglectful, abusive parents".
>>
>>77828855
>Hell Bungie took The Fall of Reach and went "nope, that's not what happened"
I'm still fucking mad about this, it's pretty much the reason I haven't played a Halo game after Reach.
