Halo 4 is the romance of Master Chief and Cortana, disguised as a combat game

The latest DeanBeat column from Dean Takahashi at GamesBeat is about how you come for the combat and stay for the love story in Halo 4. (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

If that truly is a plot element, your title is a f*cking spoiler, you jerk.
Chuk5  +   664d ago
Not really. There has always been a sort of allusion to romance between Chief and Cortana, so I don't see why you're up in arms.
deantak  +   664d ago
well, now, this argument goes back to the original Halo. So I wouldn't say the title is a spoiler. Who didn't know this?

Nope, not a spoiler at all. Just be thankful that you didn't come across the ending to Halo 4 through the TITLE of a forum thread on NeoGAF like I did...those guys are the real assholes.

That's why its so interesting, the most unsual theme between the most unsual pair of characters told in an unsual way, backed up by one of the most epic backstories and universes. Wayyyyyyy better than crappy military stories most shooters go for.

Agree. Otherwise, I've had enough of space marines.

This actually makes me want to play Halo again. Refreshing.

MC and Cortana's relationship is the only compelling story arc in Halo 4, the rest is insubstantial, unoriginal, and often incomprehensible.

BUT, why does Cortana look like she's fresh out of a Mexican rap video this iteration?
LouisGarcia  +   664d ago
Mexican rap video? I may stay away...

So ... seems that Halo 4 is more a "save the princess" trope than a true love story. Nice try, anyway. I guess.
deantak  +   664d ago
what's wrong with saving the princess?
