    Is that so wrong?

    Well, apparently they talked about level 1 a tiny bit just after July 4th. The name of the level is winter contingency.

    BTW, paid off my Reach console today and put in my time off request.

    Gonna go to the midnight launch. Then it's straight home, HDD transfer time, then installing the game... I should be playing it by 1:30 AM I'm guessing. Of course I'll also be turning off notifications and no I don't want to do multiplayer the first night. :P

    the timeline is kinda messed up because the events of halo 2 take place over a series of months because of slipspace travel, and IIRC when the Pillar of Autumn leaves for delta halo its september and they arrive in october

    Also, this wait is starting to wear on me. Halo is really the only series which reliably does that to me for both multiplayer and singleplayer and holy crap is Reach stepping up on both accounts.

    Microsoft had better realize that the quality of the Halo series is inextricably linked to its popularity. Too bad there's really no way for Microsoft to retain O'Donnell for whatever new Halo dev group they put together. Having another Halo game without his music will be... weird.

    >the Halo thread turns to canon discussion
    >mfw


    I don't know if the SPARTAN program would be allowed, at least publicly, to exist after the war. It's highly immoral, and even if the public could acknowledge how invaluable the SPARTANs were in both the insurrection and the war, something like that would never get real support.

    Or maybe it'd get overwhelming support, and people would try to submit their kids to it.

    Who knows, really?

    the spartan III program would probably get some real dirty looks, but I think the spartan IIs would still earn some respect thanks to the notoriety Master Chief got in the public and military

    Considering that the progression of the Spartan program was towards far less destructive augmentation, I could see the fiction moving in the direction of particularly gifted soldiers volunteering to be augmented to be new Spartans with more newer, more user-friendly armor. Being able to produce soldiers on a large scale with even half ability of the original S-IIs at a much reduced cost would be a big, big force multiplier. Less than a hundred full S-IIs wreaked wholly damage against the Covenant wholly disproportionate to their numbers. Having hundreds or thousands of soldiers at even half that effectiveness would be pretty nasty.

    Also, I doubt the actual origins of the S-III program were ever released. Just as easy to tell everyone the S-IIIs are a secret group of spec-ops soldiers rather than talk about the nasty bit about kidnapping children for a life of warfare.

    Regardless, I hold out hope for seeing hundreds of S-IVs dropping onto the Brute homeworld putting them at the ass-end of an ass-kicking.

    Well, at least with the S-III's they weren't strictly kidnapping the children, just... adopting them? I mean they were war orphans after all.
    To me, the big moral question marks regarding the Spartan process have always been:

    1. Augmentation 'washouts' (and by 'washout', of course, I mean 'horrible disfigurement')
    2. Holy shit kidnapping children what the fuck, guys.

    But really, no one likes the S-III's because Ackerson < Halsey.

    Looks like the us marketing team is getting lazy too. They really couldn't have thought of something other than the war memorial theme for their marketing campaign?
