The Expanded lore genuinely made me interested in the created storyline. I really hope we get more media exploring that time period in the future!
AllyKayAllTheWay Prije mjesec
@James Burgess It was kind of the same. Everyone was mostly left to their own devices so long as they didn’t employ WMD’s or the like. Except the UNSC. Cortana had a hate boner for them. She attacked UNSC bases galaxy-wide then launched a final assault on a base located in Sydney. I would like an episodic type of game where you play as different people when Cortana attacks their base. Like in Episode 1 it could be horror themed with you playing as a civilian/non-combatant just trying to escape. Then Episode 2 could be a Marine fighting to rescue his squad. Episode 3 would be an ODST going behind enemy lines looking for intel on a weakness for a Guardian or maybe a new Composer Cortana had built. Then on Episode 4(the finale) you could play as a Spartan who is tasked with destroying the Guardian/Composer only to find out that it was all in vain because there are MANY more. It would be a nice way to show what the Galaxy is like during the reign of the Created and how everyone sees it. Plus, it would give those who don’t read the books an idea of what went on between the games.

I actually like Atriox, he may pick fights with just about everybody, but he dares not mess with the Flood, he knows how much of a losing battle that is and has seen how easily it is to lose against the Flood.

@Guggachug in the halo ce and 2 terminals it also directly kills the flood. I haven't read many books unfortunately, so I can't determine which of these is Canon, but the terminals definitely show you it kills not only the food, but the flood itselves. IIRC, the rings destroy nervous systems. Which makes sense as the flood can only infect beings with as much. So I guess the rings kill off anything with a nervous system including the flood that take advantage of such. Please correct me if I'm wrong!!!
G30rg31415 Prije mjesec
@Chance Cisneros Well imagine a fight between tyranids and the flood
theroguekage Prije mjesec
@Tasheem The Dream I think it’s a likely possibly. There’s an audio log with a UNSC Marine talking to the Harbringer. She tells him “I shall talk, and you shall listen” just like the gravemind did to Chief and The Arbiter in Halo 2. It would be pretty weird if 343 didn’t do that intentionally and it was just a coincidence.
Thane Vakarian
Thane Vakarian Prije mjesec
@Tasheem The Dream yeah and they blew the design of another alien race. I really loved infinite campaign despite expecting it to be terrible, but the forerunners and the endless are lame designs. It’s okay to make human looking aliens they don’t all have to be variations of animals or lizards cause reasons
SovietTricycle Prije mjesec
@Clark Hollingsworth I read a comment on tiktok that perhaps what made the endless worse than the flood is that the flood cannot be killed via halo as to the endless. So imagine if the endless are infected by the flood? That would be an unstoppable force.
Nicos Prije mjesec
“Waiting, hoping, for something to turn the tide…” The way you then cut to the master chief floating in space gave me massive goose bumps. The way you set up that shot after describing the UNSC’s devastated state, then showing the chief as the last figure of hope was amazing. It immediately brought back all the memories of the things chief had done to single-handedly save humanity and the galaxy, and how he is the last thing that humanity can truly look towards for any chance of victory. Amazing, good work.

I only recently went on a deep wiki rabbit hole of details of the extended halo universe having never read the books, and while the extended universe is insane and wildly interesting (including a LOT of stuff not mentioned here, as it pertains to events between the precursors and the forerunners) I still love the Halo games because it’s Master Chiefs story of being so solely focused on the betterment of humanity through impossible action mixed in with (ty Cortana) a hefty amount of luck that the games become such a satisfying hero story for those who play it. I’ll scream my jeans if we see Spartan II Jerome and Isabelle or the Spirit of Fire sometime during Infinite, but even if we don’t I’m still excited to rip through this ring and find out what happens next regardless. Feels good to be back in some real ass Halo game territory. 343 making a strong comeback with this one
pyrosianheir Prije mjesec
So like... I greatly appreciate all of this run down - it was DEFINITELY needed, this time - but.... I'm also feeling like 343 doing all this off screen makes it a lot harder to get into the story of Infinite's story. There's so much missing thanks to the gap of events that could be necessary to having some degree of understanding. Like... Why was Chief's return to Reach not the next game? It would've been incredibly hype.... Ah well. Nothing to be done about it now. Like I said at the start, appreciate you putting all this together in an understandable, pretty concise, format.
pyrosianheir Prije mjesec
@Kidde you miss my point about all the stuff off screen. I'm talking about just the initial starting point. There's SO much that happened between 5 and Infinite, yet we'll miss most of it if we haven't read the dang books or comics. That's my issue, not how well conveyed the story in Infinite is.
Kidde Prije mjesec
@AllyKayAllTheWay this would actually be pretty dope and align with 343's current intentions of running this as the main hub of everything halo for the next 10 years. I could get down with this.
Kidde Prije mjesec
So. I have a couple of things to say. "why wasn't Return to Reach the next game?" - probably because they teased us with Zeta halo in the end of 5, and they wanted to try and stick to it for once instead of changing the storyline they had already teased us with. "343 doing all of this off screen makes it a lot harder to get into Infinite's story" - I feel like they do a pretty decent job at explaining throughout the game, as long as you pay attention. The large gap between 5 and Atriox throwing Chief out of the Infinity is still unexplained, and I agree right there, but the story of Infinite, being about the ring, the Banished and stopping them from detonating it, is pretty decently explained imo. 343 didn't do a great job, this could still have been done better, but I didn't expect anything like this when I found out how they were focusing so much on multi-player and microtransactions. 5 was much, much worse at telling the story of what was going on than Infinite in my opinion.
AllyKayAllTheWay Prije mjesec
They plan on making DLC campaigns/campaign addons so maybe one of them could be Chief telling the Weapon about his mission on Reach but as he’s telling it we’re playing it.
zac Prije mjesec
shouldn't need to read books and comics and hours of audio logs to understand everything that's going on lol

I’d love a campaign DLC for Halo Infinite down the road where you and friends can pick one of the Alpha 9 Spartans to play as and fight the Banished or whatever threat is being faced down the line. It’d be a cool way to do co op without doing Buck clones or whatever

These stories really make me hype up. Also i would love to see if they decided to make a game after Infinite that follows various tales during/after the War... "Tales from Slipspace"-I think should be - Imagine being a Spartan III from Alpha/Beta company or Marine during Harvest 2525 or even Buck in "Bad Blood". So much more !

While I’m fully caught up on the games, I have yet to finish all of the Halo novels, so this helps a lot. Obviously from what I can tell you don’t have to read anything to understand Infinite, but this is definitely cool lore that I like.
B McG Prije mjesec
@AndyMcKeeFanForLife yea it’s really really odd
AndyMcKeeFanForLife Prije mjesec
@B McG I had to practically stop right after the opening mission because, from the opening cutscene, I didn't understand what the hell was going on since the last exposure I had to Halo was Guardians. The jumps from 5 - Guardians and Guardians - Infinite where needed info has been relegated to the side material is insane and really hurts them from a storytelling perspective in comparison to the first four games.
Henry Prije mjesec
@B McG Be
B McG Prije mjesec
I somewhat disagree. I didn’t understand a bunch of things that were happening in Halo Infinite, even though I’ve played them all multiple times. I feel the same about Halo but in a much stronger way. I will never understand why they made those amazing trailers, wrote all of that great lore and then didn’t use any of it in the game. Not even a single line reference

Just wanted to say that i've been following you for about 6-7 years. Give or take, since i can't remember if it was the Halo 4 spartan ops episodes that started it all. But your vids and a couple of other guys's have been great. Really feels like being part of a community, knowing there are other nerds out there look through everything in the canon. Respect for keeping it up, bro! p.s all of this info should've been in the games. not on comics or books.
Joshua Cameron
Joshua Cameron Prije mjesec
@Janek Duda mate comics and books doing expanded universe is standard in stuff like this and is the reason Star Wars and halo are my two favourite universes. think about how long it takes to make a game vs a book or comic and then think about how the different mediums are better at doing different things. It’s not being lazy on 343s part. Yeah I’d really like a couple extra dlc stories in halo wars 2 but I understand it’s not exactly always called for. Even just talking about halo the story about how halfjaw got his nickname with the flood is amazing and if you can’t see that then I don’t know what else to say.

@Janek Duda you're delusional lmao
Janek Duda
Janek Duda Prije mjesec
@Lucas C. Brother, you are talking nonsense. Halo 5 was 4 hours. The bare fkn minimum. No one is saying pump games every year, just make 1 good one each 5 years. And all of those stories, i'm sure were supposed to be in game format. The only reason they are in another medium is because 343 didn't have the budget or will to make them. Stop excusing bad behaviour from companies. You are the worker, you are the consumer, you should always expect better from the provider!
Lucas C.
Lucas C. Prije mjesec
Not every story translates well from book to game. Also not every story is crucial to the “main” story and is just time at to add additional context to the universe. Also, if every single book and comic was made into a game, we would have a significantly large number of very boring games. We’d also, assuming we got one game pumped out each year like Call of Duty does, we’d probably be somewhere around Halo 3, story-wise, in 2021. It would just be an unnecessarily long winded and mostly boring story. People want stories spoon fed to them in flashy epic video games now instead of just reading it in the form it was meant to be consumed in.

@Gabriel Davis I can tolerate it. If it's 10% comics and 90% games.

I will admit that this set of events sound more interesting that the ones between 4 and 5. I just pray that 343 can give it a proper representation, since from what it sounds like so far makes it sound like they are trying to swipe the story set up in 4 and 5 under the rug.
Matthew Stryletz
Matthew Stryletz Prije mjesec
You're not wrong, for unknown reasons problems started between 4 and 5. Halo 5 was going to be very different from what came out. You can get glimpses of it in some of the media that was released before Gaurdians, as well as the added cutscenes for Halo 2 in the MCC. For whatever reason it seems 343 scrapped the story they had for 5 at the last minute and tried to piece together a new one from the scraps. This led to a highly divisive game with a mixed reception from fans. Because of that 343 seems to be trying to get as far away from Gaurdians as possible.

@pyrosianheir glad to see I’m not the only one who remembers all of this. There was so much potential that could have been built upon but were thrown out before anything was done. Like you said, listening to fans is one thing but aborting your whole creative vision because of fear of backlash is just cowardly.
Daniel Silva
Daniel Silva Prije mjesec
@pyrosianheir This. I'm still pissed Didact was seemingly killed in a crappy comic. If they stuck to their guts, they could have expanded these characters and make them interesting. Reminder, people HATED Arbiter in 2. But after 3 he's one of the more popular characters.
pyrosianheir Prije mjesec
literally what I'm worried about. Didact didn't do well with fans, so they axed him off screen. Evil Cortana and the Created are looked at negatively, largely due to the writing in 5 being awful? Jettison that, time to come up with something new. If they stuck to their guns and actually DEVELOPED the threats through longer story campaigns, then they wouldn't have near so much of a problem. -_-
Joshua Cameron
Joshua Cameron Prije mjesec
@JakeSpacePirate E see I’m now hoping they start to merge the two. Like the created off in there own kinda unchallenged utopia the grunts flourishing and atriox starts having the issue of factions deserting him for the created evening out the fight a bit until the created start pushing both the banished and humans which ends up in an uneasy alliance kinda like a very back staby version of the ones humans had with the elite.

@King Farouk I of Egypt and the Sudan cute let's put it this way. Games = everyone will remember. Shitty book = hardly anyone knows or cares. Lore video = "huh neat, I'm going to forget most of this 5 minutes after watching". The rookie dying isn't important and can be easily retconned as most don't even know about his death. Dumbass books shouldn't hold back the games. Period.

@MemeAlchemist maybe but i hope he returns because i'd like to see him done right instead of being off-game executed just like the rookie, which is a waste of a potentially interesting character. the rookie dying in a book is inexcusable but doing the same thing to locke would be equally inexcusable given that he was a game protagonist just like the rookie

Thank you for this! It seemed like I was missing a lot of stuff between 5 and Infinite but didn't know where to start, this was extremely helpful!

Thank you very much for your hard work. The only nitpick is that everyone is become a Spartan-4 and obviously what happened to rookie still hurts.

This is what I think may have happen between 2559 and 2560: In the leaks, Atriox lead an attack on Infinity, so somewhere around the same time Halsey decided Installation 07 was a gold spot to lure Cortana, Infinity made its way to Zeta Halo, somehow the Banished found out, which then Atriox lead the attack, throwing Chief out an airlock or something for 6 months, while parts of Zeta Halo had a full blown war (leading to parts of it destroyed), before chief was found again by Echo 216

Super stoked for Infinite. I love the lore and story sooo much in the halo franchise. I'm one of those guys that doesn't care too much for the multi-player. I'm here for the story and game play!!!

Maybe you should do a "From Halo 3 to Infinite primer" video as well. My wife would benefit greatly from that because she doesn't love Halo enough to stomach Halo 4 again, or to give Halo 5 a try at all.
bloocheez3 Prije mjesec
This is exactly the boat I'm in. I don't remember a damn thing from 4 (because I had no context for most of it in the first place) and I had zero interest in 5.

23:45 those keys and subtle chorus, plus the narrative setup. That type of thing never fails to give me chills when the chief is involved

I love the video! It may be helpful to have names above/below/near characters when possible so people can keep the story straight. Keep up the great work!

5:28 so this is the Spartan 4 training facility that Cortana destroys? I will never understand why 343 skims over the lore in the games. The lore is great, the canon is great but they just don’t include it in the games. This scene was a hologram that was about 15 seconds long in Infinite

Nice video, I learned a bunch of stuff I didn't know and I think I'm really ready for Infinite now! However, it seems you kinda failed to mention that the rehab pioneers never left Reach, and in fact had been using a network of tunnels through the glass to keep them safe while they planned a way to get the aliens off their world. With the help of Blue team they managed to capture the town and armory of New Mohacs, and then with the help of forces from the Infinity they managed to rout the Banished counterattack and survive. The pioneers remained behind when both the Banished and the UNSC(although it should be mentioned that 6 Pelicans and 1 Albatross did not make it back to the Infinity in time and so stayed behind on the planet), and although its not confirmed we can assume that they hid for a little bit while Cortana's Guardian was in-system, and then when it left they, once again in sole-possesion of the planet, continued the process of rehabilitation.

Thank you sooo much for this. As someone who's vowed never to touch Halo 5 (i know that's like super pessimistic but you can't just remove local co-op and expect me to still want to give it a shot), this will help to keep me in the loop before Infinite releases :)
DekuScrub Prije mjesec
@kgosch1 yeah as bummed as i am that local co-op isn't currently available for campaign (although custom games still don't work so im guessing they don't work in multiplayer either), im still glad that they're at least making an effort to bring it back unlike halo 5.
kgosch1 Prije mjesec
If that's the case, then I'm afraid I've got some bad news about co-op in Infinite as well :(

You pretty much summed up Halo: Divine Wind in this video. I see what you did there, and it was nicely fit in.

I think I’m in the minority that still feels lost after watching this. It’s probably because I just about played the main games’ stories and haven’t looked at any of the side material, so there are a lot of names and places that are just big question marks to me. I think I’ll give this video another couple of watches and see if it makes a difference, but I think I’m going to need someone to explain this to me like I’m a five year old who’s just had a foot long sherbet stick at a birthday party and just heard that there’s a bouncy castle.
Stablegun Prije mjesec
Ah yes, the genius idea of leaving all the plot to the products outside the game.
NEO LaMA Prije 25 dana
This is the one thing that kills me. Like I get the idea of having an expanded universe or whatever, but it should be complementary not essential. The games need to be able to be understood on their own. That’s not too much to ask IMHO

With all the love and respect they give the lore in the books it's a wonder how Halo 5's campaign shat itself so hard.
Pingaz Prije mjesec
If I’m not mistaken it was rushed and the campaign was supposed to be entirely different, note the big forerunner thing in the early trailers for the game.
randomrandomnesss Prije mjesec
My issue is how the UNSC Infinity was defeated so easily. Like.... this ship was more advanced and capable than any ship seen fielded even by the covenant. A mix of forerunner and human technology, you can’t convince me some rag tag group of banished were able to take it down. Very weird in their decision to make it that way.
Ironclad Prije mjesec
None of that matters. They just wanted to abandon everything they did with the previous games and start over. The Infinity never made much sense anyway. Everything from Spartan Ops showed it was giving a child a pack of matches, and the UNSC made no other uses of Forerunner tech.

Or to show atriox kick MasterChief's a$$, then to kill him all in one cut scene.
Task Prije mjesec
It's kind of crazy how long and how much happens that is left out in-between halo 5 and infinite where players have to read books or watch videos just to understand what's going on currently. You can have events happen between games with extended media/lore but a player should be able to go from game to game and be able to follow the story easily enough. Halo infinite's gameplay has been praised but the overall story I find lacking leaning heavy on people's nostalgia for the older games and trying to introduce yet another new enemy that is somehow worse than the flood?
