So saw the tweet that waypoint forums were back up and decided to wonder over for a few mins. Needless to say I found the most hilarious post ever.
First things first, I am basing this on the theory that the planet in halo 4 is Onyx. I must also mention that I have not read all the books and know very little about the halo story so feel free to correct were necessary.
Alright so during the lone wolf mission you never actually see Six die. My theory is that he puts up a fight and takes many injuries but keeps fighting. One of the elites witnessing this event is impressed by Six's honor and courage. At this point I see a situation like the scene from the Last Samurai when tom Cruise gets captured. This elite orders the others to stand down and Six collapses. They take him to their ship to nurse him back to health and give him a chance to regain his honor that he lost when he spilled his blood. Days later Six is still unconscious on this ship when it is tasked with secretly following a captured covenant vessel that has escaped the Reach, this is the ship that Halsey and Kelley are on. They follow the Spartans to the asteroid belt and witness Halsey stealing the ship from the asteroid belt and follow her to Onyx. Six has regained consciousness by now and is knowledgeable of his plight. During the following days the covenant become preoccupied with fighting the Spartans on Onyx, and give Six a chance to escape his cell. Six proceeds to escape the ship and flees from a large number of pursuers, he then finds an alternate way to the into the sphere and escapes.
The fact that time is skewed inside the sphere can account for the years it takes MC to arrive on the planet.
I'm not saying that Six will be a playable character in the game but it would be pretty cool if he showed up in some terminals or something.
Its k iv worked it out, Frankie is a respectable working gentlemen and so he left at the appropriate time for someone who is a respectable working person, This started a ripple effect in which others who are or desire to be a respectable working person also decided to retire for the evening.
I love the guys reply to the reception to his post.
jeez everybody, sorry! I didn't mean to touch a nerve. I actually like Six more than I do Chief because of his character. I like the idea of many Halo spinoffs to expand the halo universe. I think it would be cool if each game of the new trilogy had a smaller campaign with a separate character to broaden the story. much like deniable-ops in splinter cell conviction.
I'm speculating based on the bulletin and Frankie's words of caution here. The bulletin mentions Forerunner weapons, which implies we'll be seeing Forerunner weapons, which implies we'll be using Forerunner weapons. It also implies that we might be seeing Forerunners in the game.
But... Frankie warned against assumptions, so that leaves me speculating on what we'll actually see. Forerunners? Forerunner weapons but no Forerunner appearances? Just the return of the sentinel beam?
Regardless, I have no idea what you mean by "Obviously I can't read English and understood Frankie's totally wrong. Yep. I'm talking bullshit again. should shut my mouth." Did I somehow imply that?
When I read your original post, it sounded for me that Frankie denied that there are no Forerunners in Halo 4. I'm not shitting on you speculation, I'm just trying to say that you are kind of overthinking the post Frankie made.
I could only quote one post of his at a time. Then I saw Devo's post. My heart fluttered. Dude just didn't seem to realise that what he wanted to say and how people were interpreting his posts were two totally different things.
