what’re they?

A friend of mine told me that those armored Ghost Rider things might be personal A.I.'s for Promethean-class Forerunners.

Little behind on the Forerunners...remind me, what are Promethean-class forerunners?

Hmm...Wonder if Halo will be on Metroid’s level with these new enemies?

From what I’ve seen of Metroid, Halo’s already more powerful. But again, my knowledge on Metroid is limited, for now anyways. I have a question though. What’s with everybody saying that Reach retconned the MAC’s potency?

I heard that we won’t be fighting the Flood. However, fighting them /=/ them making an appearance.

When it destroyed the spire, people were expecting a nuclear explosion, since they’re 64 Kilotons...more then 3 times the yield of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima

Yeah, that’s what I’ve heard to. Hell, the reason why people believe that MAC’s aren’t 1.17 Teratons is because they didn’t have much of an explosion on the Forerunner Dreadnaught. Didn’t anyone stop to think that they probably set the blast/explosion radius down? That would be a pretty jackass move if they shot a blast that had the blast/explosion radius of 64 Kilotons or 1.17 Teratons in close range. That would basically wipe out their forces.

wouldn’t it be funny if Halo 6 ended like Mass effect 3?

Chief is about to finish off the main villian, but is then taken to a god like entity who gives him 3 choices:

Destruction: Chief shoots a magical tube that’ll wipe out everything made of Forerunner, plus every ship in the galaxy.

Control: Master chief controlls everything forerunner created, but has to kill himself....for some reason.

Synthesis: Chief sacrifices himself to merge Forerunner and everything in the galaxy together, to create a super species.

and in all the endings, chief dies and Slipspace is destroyed.

I was reminded of something the other day. The Covenant don’t use Plasma, or at least the Plasma that we’re thinking about. They use something far more dangerous, arcane, and destructive. According to Frankie anyways. So I wonder what they use?

Wouldn’t it be interesting if Halo and Marathon really did exist in the same universe?

Imagine the Covenant with the Pfhor?

I found an official summary for Halo: Silentium on Halopedia:

“In the last years of the Forerunner empire, chaos rules. The Flood—a horrifying shape-changing parasite—has arrived in force, aided by unexpected allies. Internal strife within the ecumene has desperately weakened Forerunner defenses.Too little, too late, the legal rate of Juridicals is only now investigating possible crimes by the Master Builder and others. Evidence-gathering agents known collectively as Catalog have been dispatched to collect testimony from the Librarian and both Didacts: the Ur-Didact, treacherously abandoned in a Flood-infested system, and the Bornstellar Didact, who accompanies the Librarian as she preserves specimens against the dire possibility of Halo extermination.

Facing the imminent collapse of their civilization, the Librarian and the Ur-Didact reveal what they know about the relationship between the long-vanished Precursors and the Flood.

The Precursors created many technological species, including humanity and the Forerunners. But the roots of the Flood may be found in an act of enormous barbarity, carried out beyond our galaxy ten million years before...

Because of that barbarism, a greater evil looms. Only the Ur-Didact and the Librarian--husband and wife pushed into desperate conflict--hold the keys to a solution.

Facing the consequences of a mythic tragedy, one of them must now commit the greatest atrocity of all time—to prevent an insane evil from dominating the entire universe."



Oh shit, now we’ve got two Didacts. Looks like Faber didn’t kill him after all.

Has anyone seen the new weapons and enemy classes/variants?

Damn, even the Crawlers are packing some heavy weaponry. Apparently, they’re packing Light Rifles, Suppressors, Boltshots, et cetera.

Shit’s about to get real.
