The Master Chief has seen his fair share of war. One of our writers thinks perhaps it's time for Chief to retire.
I like the chief, I certainly don't want to see him go anywhere anytime soon.
Lol. Same here,don't want to see MC go.too attached at this point, but i think 343i is introducing locke to stirr up some interesting plots and twists. I imagine there will be an amazing battle between locke and masterchief at some point in Halo5 and with locke being a more advanced spartan i bet he'll kick masterchiefs a**. Can't wait
I just hope there's more to Locke than what we've seen so far in Nightfall's first episode. I actually felt more for the former Spartan's character (due to the stuff going on with his daughter) than I did for Locke or anyone else. Hopefully, episode 2-5 are better.
COD has made Halo a 2nd-rate shooter therefore they need to make a new ip. A movement sprinting and aim down sight is their confession.
I thought the fight was supposed to be finished 3 games ago. As long as people keep paying, they'll keep making these games.
"and with locke being a more advanced spartan i bet he'll kick masterchiefs a**. " You clearly know nothing about the difference between Spartan IIs and Spartan IVs... SIV's are garbo in comparison. (Hence their expendability.)
I won't be too sure about Locke winning that battle. MC has a way of overcoming the odds. That's what I like so much about the chief, there is always a way to Win. You just know that when he arrives on the seen, the other size is in serious f'ing trouble. Might as well just surrender. Never count out the chief.
@bigpappy Yeah you are right. He always does.
Firstly no way anyone's gonna kick master chief's ass ever. Secondly, I'm sure there will be some conflict but Locke isn't trying to kill him, he works for ONI and they probably want him to bring Master chief in. It would be a cool mixture of characters though. Arbiter, Chief, and Locke in one game. Now we need some villains, who aren't typical like the Didact, he was a great character in the books but Halo 4 made him way too cliche.
Why so many haters? There is not a single halo fan (and we number in the millions!) that wants Halo to die, Master chief to die, the franchise to die. So just stop with this useless onslaught of jealousy induced hate press. Just piss off and play your goddamn playstation and let us halo fans enjoy our games. jeeeeez. Edit: not talking about anyone posting here lol, I'm referring to all this 'news' we have been getting the last few days.
He's not immortal, so he's gotta dies sometime. Hopefully he dies a hero's death, and they create another character enough to carry the mantle... The future hero will likely have to be much deeper than MC has been in the games. Gamers are expecting more character development now then they were in 2001.
The chief is a symbol, an icon. His silent demeanour but unashamed strength is what allows players to project their emotions to the character. If a character is to deep and chatty then there is not much association that the player has, more just a journey with said character. Playing as the chief enables the player to get inside that helmet and be the chief. His morals and ethical code is what drives him and passes onto the player through the choices that need to be made to progress the story. I wouldn't want them to end him too soon. It would be nigh on impossible to replicate such a character especially the relationship with cortana and his internal conflict of being a man or machine. I agree that there could be stronger narration, but I did notice that there was far more dialogue in Halo 4 than any before it so it seems that 343 are moving in that direction. I have to be selfish and say I wish the chief never dies.
Thank you for conveying my thoughts so very well.
I hear all that. But that doesn't mean he should never die. In fact, when handled correctly death is one of if not THE most effective symbolic act. But I disagree with what you say of his moral code, at least as it had been portraited in the games up until halo4. Was he ever really compassionate? Or was he just doing what he was 'programmed' to do? Anyway, Hopefully his replacement would be adequate in all of the areas that you've mentioned. There is also a ton of room to further the man or a machine dynamic. Cheif was born human, but raised into more a machine. The Spartan IVs were raised as humans, then used as machines later in life. We also have AI constructs exhibiting human like 'emotions', and even longing for organic connection.
You take that back sir!
I'd say Master Chief is easily the best game character
Maybe take a break but to die is a little bit *clears throat* overkill
No. He can't die as he has to finish the fight!
Spartans never die George! They're only missing in action.
Yeah Kill the Baste**
Nope, considering there's supposed to be 3 Halo games starring MasterChief after Halo 3, one of them being Halo 4. You can go ahead & make early predictions that he'll die in 6 which I doubt but no way will he die in Halo 5.
I'm not opposed to seeing him go at the end of this trilogy (so Halo 6). With how Cortana's story played out in 4, they're certainly in a better position to do something like this than the old, or new, Bungie. Regardless of how you felt about ME 3, for me, my second play through hit me like a ton of bricks. As "Leaving Earth" played, I realized I was taking my Shepard to her death... again. I wasn't going to change that, and I knew that every mission/quest I completed from there on out I was one step closer to her (and Mordin) losing her life. I would definitely not be opposed to feeling like that again in Halo 6.
wtf? that would end halo dont ever kill him
If chief is to die then should all other characters that have graced us for as long as chief or longer. But seeing as how these characters generate revenue no need to kill what is profitable and wanted by consumers.
Spartans never die... Noob
