So we are here again, following our post last week '#HUNTtheTRUTH hype train has no breaks'. Yesterday, Aaron Greenberg simply tweeted #HUNTtheTruth followed by 2 pictures, one of Master Chief and the other of Locke.
i made this pic for #HUNTtheTRUTH https://pbs.twimg.com/media... lol
Its not even a real question for me....although I obviously dont know the details its pretty transparent to me that Chief isnt a traitor.
Lol. I saw something funny on twitter and xbox one sub reddit the other day. Seems Halo fans are picking sides now. Team Locke and Team Masterchief. Lol. Can't wait to know more about this game. I sure hope MC isn't a traitor though.
I highly doubt anyone is picking Locke's side, I haven seen anyone say that. I think its not about picking sides, its just about finding out both sides of the story
Who would pick Locke???
OK Chief might be a traitor to ONI but not in as far as doing anything to jeapordize the fight for humanity. How can you really believe otherwise after all he has done to protect humanity?
pictures should have said "Hero? Or Traitor?- Locke "Traitor? Or Hero? - MC
If he is a traitor then I'll be a traitor with him.
Same, I'll riot if they kill him off.
Hehe well said. Master Chief is a boss. You think I'm going to side with some Oni scum? Locke's armour looks cool though :(
Lockes armour is coooool. Next generation spartan.
All hail The Master Chief!!! Like in Outer Heaven.
I must admit, I wrote the article but.. I can not see Microsoft allowing 343 to make one of their brand Icons into a traitor.. That being said if they did turn Chief into a heel, it would sell sell sell! but like I said the brand should come first, Chief is the first character most of us played when the Original Xbox came out, so I just can not see it happening
Depends on who he's suppose to be loyal to... ONI is not a good entity, so if MC 'betrays' them, it's probably justified. Now if he turned his back on humanity, that would be a different story... (And unlikely) There are so many conflicted relationships in the halo universe, that the word traitor is almost too general to be an insult.
Exactly. It's all perspective. Maybe MC realizes that he's been on the wrong side all along, or that those he has always taken orders from have nefarious plans.
What if the government is the traitor setting MC up. The Illuminati could be involved. If so.......Aliens did it!
No, but he will have a reason to become one.
Traitor to who? What did he do in Halo 4 that's made him a traitor?
Well, actually, he refused to retire so he can fight alongside Blue Team. This isn't a welcome decision, apparently. But I feel like the actions of Cortana in Halo's 2 & 3 are going to bite the Master Chief hard than just refusing to retire. Hint: "Okay. Shoot. *screen turns black*"
It wasn't Halo 4 that made him a traitor. The going speculation right now is that, after the emotionally traumatic events that happened at the end of Halo 4 regarding a certain other character to whom he was close (avoiding spoilers), he abandoned the UNSC and went AWOL. The theories diverge at that point. Did he leave to search for answers? Did he leave to search for Dr. Halsey? Why did he go? Ostensibly, that's what Agent Locke is sent to find out. Locke: "He's gone AWOL, and the USNC want him back. I'm going to bring him home." Arbiter: "... but if he has left the fold, I'm sure he has his reasons." Locke: "I'm sure he does, Arbiter, and I intend to find out what they are." From: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Chief isn't a traitor. I was there man...I was THERE!
Based on the lore I'm guessing the Usnc is going to make him out to be a traitor but will be doing the right thing.
I just finished beating Halo 4's campaign again on the xbox one. How that game didn't win game of the year in 2012 is a travesty. Easily one of the best FPS's of the last 5 years. I still can't comprehend how people say that game was bad. From the graphics, to the enemies, to the story, to the guns, to the gameplay I have no clue how any one can say that game was bad.
Nobody that had actually played it says it's bad I think it's just those few that haven't played it trying to make themselves feel better. Halo 4 has one of the best campaigns in the whole halo universe and in all of gaming Imo.
343i took a lot of risks. They utilized a lot more of the lore behind Halo, including the forerunner and Halsey(A character that was only in 1 scene in the course of 5 games excluding 4) They added another weapon type. They pushed the 360 to it's limits with the engine 4 was running on. They made Sprint a Spartan ability. They created the most aggressive Halo AI with the Promethean. They made Halo far more gritty. They killed off an iconic character. These are a lot of risks which blew me away that they're willing to take them and make an amazing game. For the next 30 years 343i will continue making Halo darker and more interesting than ever before.
It started out a bit dull imo, but quickly became pretty awesome, though the campaign was a bit short. My main problem with the game was the multiplayer.
The campaign was good, but it lacked the open, vehicular setpeices we'd come to expect. Also the Promethean enemies were a step back in terms of gameplay design. They didn't have the feedback animations and AI routines that made fighting covenant enemies so fun, instead they were simply aggressive bullet spunges. Which makes sense in terms of lore, but doesn't make for the dynamic gunfights halo is known for... The Multiplayer continued the downward spiral initiated by reach artilery drops and load outs completely erased what made Halo MP unique... Halo4 was a good game, but it wasn't a good halo game. And that likely had an effect on critical opinions during reward season
Did anyone even play halo 4??? Jesus christ
Yeah only 9M people...
So why are everyone confused as why chief is being portrayed as a traior?? Short memory spans i guess
I have a feeling Master Chief is going to be a very different person now. Even in his commercial with Locke he sounds like a man out for vengeance and doesn't care who gets in his way. Especially if you know what the Librarian did to him in Halo 4 actually was.
God I have to find time to play HMCC. I've only ever played Halo 1. I have no idea what the plot line is, but the recent You Tube ad I saw had MC all beat up and some guy standing over him saying he had to "save the world" from MC. and Halo 4 is 87 meta. The people that are hating on it are the same people hating on FH2 or SSOD. IE people that have never owned an xbox.
I'm definitely Team Jacob on this one. 😏
Nope ,117 is no traitor, now Locke thats different. Can't wait to put him down .
im guessing currupt government get caught by chief and they send someone to kill him. OR chief just goes insane and believes humans can't be trusted anymore.
Let's just spoil the story why don't we. I don't want to know anything before I play it!
