Re: Escalation 10 *SP*

In Response To: Escalation 10 *SP* (TDSpiral)

: Ehhhhhh...

: I'm not surprised they killed the Ur-Didact.

You're serious, right? 343i actually killed off the Ur-Didact?

Normally I'm against involuntary euthanasia, but this is fantastic! This could be the next step in retconning the Forerunner into something interesting again. With Requiem gone and the Didact dead, all that's left is to punt the Prometheans down the memory hole. Get to it, 343i!

: Just disappointed. This arc
: didn't really need to happen because nothing was really gained from it.
: Most people by the end of Halo 4 assumed Didact was gone anyways; it
: wasn't something that needed to be wrapped up right away.

I think most of the genre-savvy public assumed that he wasn't dead if we didn't see the corpse.* The Ur-Didact was such a big character, it was hard to believe that they would bring him up for one game only. It's still hard to believe that they'd kill him off in the comics.

*And even then, check for a pulse and signs of cloning. This is a Marvel writer we're talking about.

: Also, where did that Shield World at the end come from? That wasn't near
: Installation 03, was it?


Even back in the Bungie days, Forerunner installations appeared as-needed.

: I love Halo, and I'm still interested in what 343 is doing with it. But man
: it sucks when I ask myself nearly every month, "why did I pay $4 to
: be disappointed?"

I think it's sad because the stories make it hard to take the comics seriously. They read like fanfiction instead of official canon, so I can't buy that they're supposed to be Halo content on par with the games.
