That would be brilliant
Date: 5/9/13 12:13 am
In Response To: What if (scarab)

: What if the Chief gets a cool new suit of armor and has BB as his AI
: companion and then has to hunt down Halsey...

: Reactions?

I can't honestly even begin to think where John's loyalties would sway towards. To the troops he's put his ass on the line for or his adoptive mother, now an enemy of the state. Going in this direction would shift from the "baddie of the week", a predictably boring alien threat, to a much more dynamic, personal, and dramatic thriller.

Other Humans have only ever been roadblocks that will have your back at the end of the day. Halsey is different. I don't have a shadow of a doubt thinking that she'd sacrifice a Marine division to save one of her Spartans. Her wits, access, and ruthless brilliance would pose a formidable threat. On the other hand, BB would only have John's best interest at heart when it leads to a successful mission outcome - Halsey's death. John is a smart man and wouldn't put too much trust in his new companion's judgment. Their shared history with Halsey, Parangosky, and Osman would put them at odds, even if neither of them would ever admit it. This would surely give the most fluid relationship the games have ever seen, That alone excites the hell out of me.

However, as Halsey's capture and declaration of revenge was featured only in Spartan Ops, I have doubts as to whether or not this could be a real possibility for Halo 5. Every game in the series has relied little on ancillary content, such as novels and comics, to move their story forward. Could the same be said for a bonus(?) feature like Spartan Ops?

Can this idea be real yet? :P
