Halo 5: Guardians Discussion

Recommended Posts

So is this the first Halo game without a Blood Gulch remake at launch?

Yea I guess so.  I'm not much of a BTB guy but I was still patiently waiting for a btb remake to pop up because every other halo had a big team map remake.

Guess this means we should all just blow up IcePrincess' inbox with love letters then, huh?  :kappa:

 

 

 
 

Oh I guess that makes sense. You know. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh except for the fact Halo 4 PICKED UP RIGHT AFTER HALO 3 WITH CHIEF IN THE CRIO TUBE! #LOGICCCCC

 

 

I could easily "continue" the story right from that point as well and it still wouldn't be canon.

 

try again.

 

 

You do know Joe Staten wrote/is writing a new Halo book, right?

 

Is Joe the original author? If so, whatever that man produces is what is the actual history of Halo, unless noted otherwise.

 

If not, he's irrelevant. 

 

To an extent this is true. At the same time, there are plenty of fictional works that have had multiple authors contributing to the canon without the consent of the original creator.

 

What ends up as canon in any particular universe varies quite widely depending on the circumstances.

 

 

Just because you contribute plot/whatever to a story, doesn't mean it's actually apart of that history/universe. MUCH less without the consent of the original author. That's just non canon fan fiction. 

 

Fan fiction will never be apart of the main history/universe/canon of the original author's universe. And THAT supersedes everything else, no matter what.

Ok, stupid question.

 

I have not pre-ordered Halo 5.

 

I will buy a hard copy on launch day.

 

Can I download the patch now?

 

I've got to download the patch on 2 Xbox One's which will take most of the day on my connection so I'd like to have the patch ready.

No I don't think so.  You have to download the patch with the game if you have a disc.

They're not the original authors. 

 

Just like Toei has rights to the Dragon Ball franchise, and created Dragon Ball GT, yet GT isn't apart of the main history/universe/canon of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball.

 

343's Halo is the Dragon Ball GT of Halo.

 

pretty much sums that up

Welcome to the NEXT GEN of gaming everyone!

 

Quick Google search yields no results for pre-loading the patch for retail copies.

 

Fucking pathetic.

Nice bait. Pre-loading patches for games you don't even own makes a lot of sense.

I was about to say that. "No pre-loading patches for retail, disc based copies". Well, OF COURSE there isn't. You don't have the GAME yet, in a format that allows the function you want. (I'm not arguing against the pre-loading of patches itself, just saying, pre-loading patches for retail isn't happening, and shouldn't come as a surprise. :P)

You're trolling, right?

 

If you pre-load a patch you can instantly patch the game once it's installed instead of waiting all day for a download to finish.

 

How is that hard to understand?

 

I teach 10 year old kids with learning disabilities that can comprehend this.
