    Are you saying that straight couples can't do butt stuff?

    I'm disappointed. So heteronormative.

    That would confirm that dog's suspicions in Sad Dog Diary about his beloved human being unable to poop.

    Halo: The Videogame series had a subpar plot on its own.

    The first Halo novel made the entirety of the first two games much more enjoyable, as you know who all these people are and why they matter. They just kind of drop you in to shoot stuff with occasional conversations in the videogame, and never address the issues of who/what Cortana is, what rampancy is, Commander Keyes... all of it.

    I Love Bees also might be my favorite radio drama / audiobook ever made, and it was a fucking ad/ARG for Halo 2. Seriously, if you never play any Halo game whatsoever and never read any of the books, it still has a shitload of value and is an amazingly interesting and "human" story about what it would be like to live through the events of what was going on from the eyes of the non-military.

    Then shit gets nuts.

    ilovebees was admittedly great

    but I feel as though its brilliance is fairly detached from the Halo universe as a whole

    Literally the only three Halo plot points you need are "invading alien army is trying to find Earth", "there are AIs", and "the military takes children and makes them into super soldiers"

    The whole thing is actually pretty much standalone in that regard

    Le Guinn is ridiculously good classic sci-fi. You're missing out.

    Even her YA stuff in Earthsea has some really nice bits to it.

    Plus the whole forerunner beacon, mention of the prophets...

    Like I said, it is a work completely enjoyable as its own thing. But it is very much a part of the same world, and shows that there are a lot of great stories that can be told in that framework.

    Halo 4 tried a harder to make the novel/external storylines matter more, and I appreciated their effort even if it wasn't a total success.

    Fuck the haters; when Master Chief Collection comes out later this year I am going to play through all four games back to back in 1080p60 and have a blast.

    The first three books are usually shelved that way, it was how I was initially exposed to her stuff. The last book really isn't but sequel and all that.

    Though now I kinda want to reread them since I haven't since I was a stupid youngling.

    I mean, of all the assignments school gave me that was probably one of the best... but yeah, Earthsea falls pretty squarely in the YA bracket, but is immensely enjoyable to readers of all ages.

    The Earthsea trilogy traces the story of Ged from apprentice to grand master wizard through three books. The second title, the Tomb of Atuan, is really fucking brilliant and probably my favorite.
