The Married Gamer: What happens when a tool becomes seemingly obsolete? That is a central question for 343 Industries’ Halo 4. Gamers last saw Master Chief floating through unknown space with his companion Cortana by his side. The Earth was saved from the armies of the Covenant and the destructive force of the Flood. However for Earth and its protectors, Master Chief is believed to be dead. Halo 4 marks the return of the warrior. He lives, but a new ancient evil arises to threaten the universe and allies that once called him a hero are now skeptical of his value.
