Sup /co/. I'm coming from the Halo General over in /vg/

So 343 finally fired Brian Reed, who was the lead writer for the company. Would you guys like him back? I'm sure he'd like to write for Marvel again

Because seriously, keep him the fuck away from Halo
>>
>>90478421
Who?
>>
>>90478501
Brian Reed. He wrote that half-way decent Ms. Marvel run from the mid-00s.

They made king crimson focus less on fighting the religious alien nuts and put more emphasis on finding and rescuing his digital girlfriend who at this point is more interested in destroying the galaxy due to a bad case of A.I corruption.

Everything of interest I can think of in Halo (story-wise) was done better by Marathon, the AIs in particular. Halo is kinda like the watered-down action movie to Marathon's science fiction novel. And I'm referring to the Bungie Halos here. The story under 343 is just retarded.

Halo 5 was great and has a great story (for the really low Halo standards), get a life you Xbro manchildren.

I'm unfamiliar with your guy /hg/

Did he write Halo 4 and 5?

Is he responsible for the Rookie being killed by Mickey turning traitor?
Is he responsible for Arbiter and the Elites turning into total pusses in the books to stroke off that female vice-admiral (the one who hates Halsey because she's an expy for the writer) and her team of hot-blooded sues?

Is he responsible for fucking PALMER?

Wasn't that Karen Traviss? Either way, fuck Karen Traviss.

>>90478998
They decided to start using ALL of the book canon despite half of the books being pure fucking garbage.

Palmer is basically Halo-Carol so probably.
>>
>>90482714
So they went full Star Wars?
>>
>>90482872
No. For all of his flaws, Lucas never gave a fuck about the extended universe when he made his own projects. This is more like giving the reins to the Star Wars franchise to someone who's great at editing Wookiepedia.
>>
>>90482993
I'm obviously talking about post-Disney Star Wars.
>>
Does this mean the Halo story isn't going to suck anymore? Because Halo 4 was ass.
>>
>>90483028
Still no then? NuStar Wars is just ripping off EU stories and hoping that no one notices, the New Halo games are using EU stuff as gospel (despite extremely few people knowing/giving a fuck about it).
>>
>>90483070
Halo 5 was even more ass.

Cortana is the villain, I'm just going to spoil that for everyone reading this so they are less inclined to waste time on it.
>>
>>90483098
Is it true they also killed the cast of ODST?

>>90483098
It also ended with a To be continued, just like Halo 2.

I feel like the biggest problem with Halo after 3 though I actually enjoyed Reach is that they're trying to make the story more serious and have more morally grey shit going on. Halo worked because it was humans fighting a massive alien invasion force with some vague deep lore about the forerunners. It was simple, not particularly deep but it worked. I mean, I know they just keep the franchise going because it's all microsoft has going for it, but it feels like they're over-writing it.

Karen Traviss was responsible for the deterioration of Arby and the Elites. And for the random hate for Halsey

Reed was the main writer of Spartan Ops, and the main writer of Halo 5.

So while he wasn't the one who created Palmer, he is the one who is responsible for her insufferable attitude and character.

Reed is also responsible for Halo 5 abandoning all the plot points of the last game, Locke and his team of power rangers, Blue Team's lack of characterization, and the whole evil robot uprising story they decided to go with

Adding a bit of depth can work with the setting. Take Eric Nylund's work for example

>>90483454
Good.
>>
>>90483551
It feels so weird to me seeing Halo stuff nowadays. I was such a dedicated, massive fan, but since Halo 4 I just stopped caring.

Was Halo 5 really bad in just the story, or gameplay too? Any of the novels past the Traviss shit worth reading? Is Halo 5 ever coming to PC? Did I hear there was a Halo Wars 2 now?
>>
>>90487454
I feel the same way honestly. Even by the time Halo 4 came out I really couldn't bring myself to care, and I'm not really sure why. Maybe it's because Halo 3 wrapped up the war with the Covenant and I didn't really care about the continuing adventures of Master Chief.
>>
>>90483333
He fucked the lore to the point where Halo 6 needs around 4 or 5 massive retcons just to have a coherent story.
>>
I still love Halo but barely played 4 and didn't even touch 5. It's not like it would even be hard for me to do, I have a Bone like 3 feet away and could get the game super easy, but hearing about it totally sapped my will to play it. Sad but stuff like this just happens to franchises.
>>
>>90483606
I've read that book. It's overrated, some good ideas but I found the prose to be rather clunky.

>>90492841
Different anon, but didn't Halo 4 make it that Humans actually predated the Forerunners, were at war with the Flood when they met, and the forerunners just wiped their memories or some weird shit?
>>
>>90492293
Yup

Halos are made, everyone dies blah blah blah

The Forerunner prequel books are actually good
>>
>>90478421
Why don't they get one of the people who write the halo novels to be the lead writer? I've never read them and I've been needing to but I only keep hearing good things from the people who do read the novels.

>>90487454
nah gameplay was great, the multiplayer is actually good and balanced for the first time in ages.

>>90496057
Also halo 5 kinda came to PC, you can play custom games and thats it, there aren't a ton of people playing but you can always find at least a few games.

>Coming close to losing scared the Forerunners
I thought they completely curbstomped the humans?
>>
>>90496192
From i remember they sort of did, the humans were doing pretty good but then they were getting ass raped by the flood on one side and the forerunners on the other and couldnt keep going until eventually yeah the forerunners fucked em up.
>>
>>90494060
>>Turns out, the Humans only came to the Milky Way because The Flood ate everything in their old galaxy
Nah, humans are from the Milky Way. Earth is still their planet of origin. Forerunners just didn't own the entire galaxy, and hadn't met them yet.
>>
>>90483551
Between Halo and Star Wars, is Karen Traviss the most wretched person currently involved in sci-fi fiction?
>>
>>90478421
Nah, keep that cuck away from everything.
>>
>>90496388
I don't know how you can fuck up so hard after taking the Republic Commando series to develop pretty decent characters and then getting a bunch of nerds pissed off at Clone numbers.
>>
>>90497636
the only good RC books were the first two
>>
>>90494502
The Halo novels aren't really good any more. Fall of REACH was the best one.
>>
>>90494502
Because the last one Eric Nylund wrote wasn't all that great, and the setting isn't even close to how it was then. Now the UNSC are functionally the biggest faction in space, because the Elites are in a civil war. And the Prophets are all dead.
