Bashing 117

So, since everyone is bashing Halsey, lets look at John 117. (Remember, as some of you said''the end does not justify the means'') As much as i remember, John killed 4 ODSTs while he was only a boy. Yes they did sneak into spartan training ground and picked up on him, but he did not have to kill fellow humans. So, when the war is fully over, lets make him a war criminal and execute him with a gun shoot to the brain, right next to memorial which was shown at end of halo 3! Great idea, right guys? /sarcasm

  • The Halo 4 Chief is such a downgrade. Upgraded firmware? lmao -Really low jump height (about the same as Reach, worse than CE's) -Slow melees and grenade throwing -slow reload time (relegated to tactical packages) -severely nerfed lunge and melee range -still uneven shield and health points -only 2 of each grenades (relegated to tactical packages) -long shield recharge wait time -no motion sensor when zoomed in (relegated to support upgrades) -no flashlight -Low FoV. On my end, I get [url=http://i.imgur.com/eEakv.jpg]this[/url] (and it's not a [url=http://i.imgur.com/DzGno.jpg]glitch[/url]) instead of the bigger one everyone else has [Edited on 11.27.2012 1:40 AM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Spartan1995324 Halsley knew what she was doing as soon as she got into the project. She knew beforehand because she had to be informed. She accepted it, responsibility and all. John in this case, I think took it too far. I'm a bit rusty with this incident, but I don't think John killed any of them in one hit. He could have stopped before hand... Couldn't he? Maybe knock them out, but not kill the two? Master Chief is a pretty cool guy who kills aliens and doesn't afraid of anything... But like most of us, he's made mistakes as well. It's what makes him human I think.[/quote] So did Chief, he knew he was getting into a fight, so he fought. And the guy in command of the ODSTs more or less ordered them all to fight, that's mainly what I'm drawing connection with. It's silly to blame Chief for their deaths as the fight was not his idea just as saying everything is Halsey's fault and acting as if it's something she came up with and did on her own...the latter is especially silly if one acts like it was done for nothing more than -blam!-s and giggles.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Wolverfrog John killed them whilst under orders to fight. If anyone would get in trouble for that, it'd be the officer. [/quote] Also the fact (while not publicly known) it did literally shake Chief up for a while.

  • I think what we need to accept at this point is that Halsey is not being persecuted because she was responsible for any work that was more morally unacceptable than ONI's, but rather that she is a convenient scapegoat for an obvious human ethics disaster that the agency needs to address post-war. I don't like the direction that 343i is going with Halsey, but if they have a method to their madness (i.e., they do something with it) it can pay off.

  • Well I didn't really like it when he was so quiet you'd forget he was onscreen if it wasn't for the fact he was so big. I mean I don't want to be Master Chief that's not why I enjoy Halo. Whatever he is as a character it shouldn't exist to be something for other to project onto.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ajw34307 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] And Im Here Too I'm more concerned with how utterly [i]boring[/i] John is, at least up until Halo 4.[/quote] Agreed. The most interesting he got pre-Halo 4 was his development in the novels where things are revealed like how he's absolutely terrified of the Flood, it was the closest he got to actually being a character, but Halo CE-3 retained that bullshyte claim that you should project yourself into the character. In a sci-fi universe as large as Halo's where the story revolves around this one guy who does all the important stuff, you [i]can't[/i] retain that backwards mentality with a protagonist.[/quote]I could go on about how one shouldn't change these sort of things just because some people prefere it another way, [b]but instead I'll ask you guys this:[/b] why allow [i]an official statement[/i] to ruin your experience of a character? Who cares if Bungie have said that he's supposed to be someone one can project oneself onto, he works perfectly fine as a character even if that statement is removed. What if he simply was a character that didn't open his mouth everytime something happened, or remained relatively plain? Being simple is a character trait too, not all characters have to be super colourfull, and go on about emotions and whatever will they have, reveal exactly what they feel, or do they? He might be [i]boring[/i], but at least he wasn't directly unlikeable. What if he had strong opinions that you didn't agree with? He's the main character, he's always there, so the more personality one gives him, the bigger the chance is that someone will dislike him, and by extension like the game less. There are many who like how little he says and how little personal attitude he spews out. Throughout CE, 2, and 3, John remained a character that allowed the player to imagine what he might be thinking and feeling, and only give a small glimpse of who he is now and then, in order to gradually narrow down who he is. He was buildt up by a graspable amount of shards, opposed to a cascade where most of it simply would go over most players heads. Although it seems that the subtle nuances that defined him did so too... But no, [i]I want it all, I want it now[/i], is what people seem to be implying. [i]I cant wait an entire trilogy for him to reveal yet another portion of his persona, I want it all to be exhibited all the time and always.[/i] [b]Second question[/b]: Who is he supposed to be anyway, what is he supposed to become, why does he have to [i]develope[/i]? All this talk about character development, and I never see anything about what Chief is supposed to be/become in order to further enhance the rest of the narrative. Is he supposed to grow into a someone who leads the opposition agaist the Precursors? What kind of a figure is he supposed to be/become? [b]Also, bear in mind that having someone talk all the time/comment on everything in a first person shooter is annoying. Just having a super strong personality present all the time can also be incredibly intrusive[/b] I liked how he was, who he was, and how he was portrayed; how often one got some more information of who he was (it felt like a reward for being vigilant).

  • When 117 fought injured and killed the ODSTs it was soon after the augmentations. He was in a gym that had different gravity at either end. Because of the augmentations normal gravity at one end didn't feel right to him and he wanted to test it using a pin from one of the weight sets. When the ODSTs came in they started their workout until a loose weight fell. They blamed John and their CO allowed a fight in the ring. John not knowing his strength and with moves that the ODSTs might never have seen killed them and badly injured the others. During the fight John probably thought he was giving black eyes, broken noses, and KOs not skull cave ins and lacerated organs.
