    Except I doubt there's an automated weapon factory on half of a wrecked frigate and "nano-machines" which technology has never even been indicated to be in the universe before was introduced in a single throwaway conversation.

    Halo 4 looks amazing and all, i can't wait for it to come out, but there is something REALLY bugging me. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THE HUMAN/ELITE ALLIANCE!!!!!

    In Halo 3 Humans and Elites joined forces against the Covenant and after the war, were on good terms for the most part. But my main concern is that the Prophets had the Elites sentenced to extermination and the whole Covenant turned against them. Yes, Truth, Mercy, and Regret are all dead, but why in the hell would the Elites join back up with the Covenant if they had learned that the Great Journey was flawed? What happened to the Brutes? Are they still the main force of the Covenant? If not, were they kicked and replaced by the Elites, AGAIN. Even if that was the case, what leader in their right mind would even consider joining back up with a force that nearly wiped them all out and risk having the same thing happen again? This I see as a major problem in the story.

    Now PLEASE, if i missed something along this thread or the books, i have not read all of them, enlighten me.

    I'm willing to give 343i a chance, as these ideas sound bad on paper, but could pull off end-game.
    However, I still am scratching my head at stuff like:
    1.) Half-naked Elites.
    2.)Forerunner Vision.
    3.) Random weapon spawn.
    4.) Custom class(Specifically: weapon choices.)

    I understand they want to follow lore, and I'm all for having an even deeper and meaningful story, It's just that some Canon things never work for games.

    EDIT: I'm not making my final verdict yet. I will wait until enough information is on the table.

    She is still just a bloody program. Hell if the Covenant can't do it with such advanced technology, how come we, a still somewhat primitive race compared to them and the Forerunners, can? It still doesn't make sense.

    Now, it took roughly 2500 years for the entire covenant to form. Which would mean that that was MORE than enough time for them to reverse eningeer everything they could get their hands on. That would mean they could have done this themselves, but we don't see any traces of it.

    So my question is, how could DATA which can't be phisycal, upgrade the armor in such a significant way without the use of special tools? It just doesn't make ANY sense at all even if the Chief was in cryosleep. It's just doesn't seem possible in that time period even it was just 500 years in the future.

    first of all we dont see traces of it besause no elite has been in cryo for 500 years.

    second i am sure that they already have the tech it just isn't used because the suit has to be completely shutdown in order to activate the nano tech that upgrades and repairs the suit.

    There never was a Human/Elite Alliance the way I see it, there was a temporary truce of mutual convenience.

    Probably the one thing that Glasslands did right was emphasize the elites and humans still very much dislike each other and see each other as a clear and present threat. This "Covenant" being talked about sounds like an elite led force with some scattered ex-Covenant elements and equipment. The Prophets are out of the picture, High Charity was the last concentration of significant population and even then they were having trouble keeping the Prophet population there genetically viable.

    I'll wait for some extended gameplay clips before I say anything about the weapons.

    The game at least looks nice, but the fact that 343 is pushing the game from somewhat traditional Halo to Mass Call of Crysis 4: Modern Reach is not exciting at all. If it integrates well with Halo 4, it'd be a nice change of pace for a Halo game, but I have a feeling that these changes will be shoehorned in rather than fully meshed with the rest of the game.

    Mass Call of Crysis 4: Modern Reach
    lol, sounds catchy

    i also think that the covenant MC encounters must be an abandonend "pirate" covenant group,
    because mc is officially MIA on earth, so the ship would be in a place that no one (human) has ever been.
    the half naked elites just verifies the pirate thing ever seen a pirate in full uniform?

    What part of the Halo story have you been reading? Of course there were no Elites in cryo sleep for 500 years. Not even the Chief has been asleep for that long.

    to tell you the truth, i think a branch ofr the covenant broke off before the civil war in search of this shield world, thus why there is an armada waiting for the chief.

    We finally have a better idea of whats making up Multiplayer.

    It still wont put to bed my concerns but Forerunner Vision sounds like an awesome ability. Ill be looking foreword to this for Zombies for sure. But i have a feeling its the new camping tool of choice lol.

    I'm undecided at this point. To me its slowly looking like COD with a Halo skin thrown over it. I still want to buy it, but some of the things I'm hearing sounds like their trying to draw in COD fans.

    I've been looking around to see if its true about the armor upgrades and weapons being customizable. I looked everywhere but haven't been able to find it. That, or my eyes are that bad.

    Can anyone shed some light please?

    I'm not liking all these new features much either. But at this point I'll be fine with Halo if its core is still alive, even if its through adjusting some settings. Most of this stuff I'm seeing is just 343 adding meat to the bones of Halo and its not entirely a bad thing. Sure most of it can be considered stolen from other games but that doesn't mean its a bad feature for Halo. A good idea is a good idea no matter who came up with it first. Halo has its own unique style but if it is to survive it must adapt or die and i would rather have new and entertaining variations of Halo then have it gone forever. Even if its a hard pill to swallow.
