Sounds like what Bungie did with Reach honestly
>>
>>77870364
Is it really that bad? I took home a copy last night and haven't watched it yet.

Does it at least make an attempt to bridge the canon inconsistencies between Fall of Reach and Halo: Reach? Is it a good standalone for those who haven't read FoR yet?
>>
>>77870364
bungie did this ages ago
>>
>>77870418
Literally a cartoon by definition.

>>77870436
It's fine as a standalone, but it just ends when Sam dies, which happens early in the book. Doesn't even cover the Battle of Reach.

And no, later canon contradicts FoR so much that it's kind of impossible to bridge it correctly.
>>
>>77870428
>>77870406
I'm fine with them changing things, but pussying out and cutting out 2/3s of your series because you don't want to admit you fucked up is a bitch move.

At least what we got was canon-friendly, but it wasn't much.
>>
>>77870521
>but it just ends when Sam dies
This pisses me off, that is way early in the story. Jesus are there any good things about this? Do the Covenant even have a chance to show up?
>>
>>77870364
Did we time travel to the year 2001? Didn't the entire human race pretty much stop caring about Halo like five years ago or something?

Its not like Halo had a particularly great story to begin with. The game only got popular because it was the only exclusive launch title for the original Xbox that didn't suck complete ass.
>>
Halo has a story?

Yes. Fall of Reach was actually a decent scifi bookthat came out a little after Halo 1.

I don't care about Halo lore. No one cares about Halo lore.

They literally break their own records every time they release a new game, fuck off with your /v/ memes.

Also this is an adaptation of EU stuff, which is usually great.

People dying because it's a sad prequel is not a good story you easily manipulated child.

Not because of the story, numbnuts.

Legit question, why are you guys here? No one was talking about the games in the first place.
>>
I stopped paying attention when 343 took over and decided to change the backstory almost completely.

Oh now the ancient humans actually were fighting the Forerunners or some bullshit, and then they saved us but didn't save themselves from the flood or something.

No thanks M$

Dude, the story ARG leading up to the game had like 12 million people listening to it, people care about the lore.
>>
>>77870799
The movie is a direct extension of the game. If people don't care about the game, why the fuck would they give a shit about this movie?
>>

you literally just made up a number. there was like a couple thousand, worldwide. If even that. No one gave a shit.

I bet you couldn't get five people on Xbox Live to even tell you what the plot of the series is.
>>
>>77870889
Not sure which ARG you're talking about but the ilovebees and Superintendent ARGS were really popular.

Really? I thought it died years ago, I mean I enjoyed the first 2 but who cares anymore?
>>
>>77870920
Yeah, that's why I don't try to talk to people on Xbox live. Seriously, where are you trying to go with this?

>>77870889
"The first season was highly successful, drawing an audience of 6.7 million listeners on iTunes and winning Hunt the Truth's ad agency a Clio Award."

Okay, so I accidentally multiplied by 2, but the point still stands.

Literally, only the faggot OP.

I mean, we're talking about and adaption of something that came out alongside the first game, so...

Are you that dense? My point was: even the people who play Halo have no idea what Halo's plot is.

Its always morning somewhere.

OP confirmed for 343 employee.

There's still a lot of people who do. There's some fans on /co/ too, namely the ones who stick around the Escalation threads.

>>77871088
Literally was trying to start a 343i hate thread.

Watch, that actually turns out to be true. All 343 employees are posting from the same IP address.

>I mean, we're talking about and adaption of something that came out alongside the first game, so...

I never really cared about the lore of Halo, in fact I liked that there was very little lore. Videogames have piss poor stories 99% of the time, I liked that Halo's story was minimal and didn't try to embarrass themselves by attempting to write something.

Apparently I was wrong?

How many video games have you actually, you know, played? I can think of tons of games that have absolutely stellar storylines.

Great thread guys.

Well, good, cause I just mentioned the new era of casual games, man.
>>
>>77870722
Reach is the ideal side game. Great story, gameplay that's familiar but with a unique feel, and new features and modes to boot.

>>77870747
/co/'s environment now is /v/ circa 2010.

It's hard to actually bridge the story from there though because of what Reach did. I don't think it's them changing anything so much as it is just them being unable to give people the whole story and explain to people who didn't read the books/data drops how it fits in with Reach.
>>
If it makes you feel any better: they are remastering and recutting Red Vs. blue for the El Rey network.
>>
>>77871560
El Rey? Dafuq is that?

It's also been recut for Netflix, I binged it a few months back.
>>
>>77871602
How long are the episodes?
>>
Yo, is Escalation OP here? I like that dude.
>>
>muh halo lore

Bungie never gave a shit about it and now that 343 is trying to address it you bitch? Sure the book were fucking good as fuck for the most part but you never saw any of that in the games.

>>77871560
The fuck is El Rey? Even then why watch it on that when its all on Rooster Teeth or if your really lazy could watch it on Netflix.
>>
>>77871631
Each season is an individual episode. The PSAs, specials, and miniseries have been omitted.
>>
>>77871560
>recutting
For what purpose? Are they trying to make the episodes longer and seamless so we don't have a fade out every five minutes or are they actually changing the order of events?

I've only ever seen Blood Gulch Chronicles and haven't kept up with the latest developments
>>
>>77871641
Yeah, I'm here. This thread is shit though, so I haven't been posting.

>>77871647
I don't know what the fuck OP is doing, he was apparently trying to start a hate thread but bitched at people who actually talked.
>>
>>77871647
But that's wrong, lore was pretty consistent up until Reach. 343 has done almost as much lore rape as Lucas when you look at it in relativity to the size of the universe.
>>
>>77871602
El Rey is the network on expanded cable that shows (a) grindhouse movies and (b) Shaw Bros kung fu flicks.
>>
>>77871675
They just remove the fadeouts and credit gags.

>>77871776
No, they really haven't. You can't compare 343i to Lucas.
>>
>>77871647
>Bungie never gave a shit about it
Yeah they did, it's just that most of it got relegated to the background or instruction manuals.
>>
>>77872278
>relegated to the background or instruction manuals.
Sooooooooooooooooo they didn't care. Thanks.
>>
>>77870843
That was all established in the books when Bungie was in charge.
