@Teran: I've read the novels and I'm not all that offended by the changes they made. It would have been nice to see the huge covenant fleet that they described in the book though.

How about more Spartans-II? A better defended Reach also?

In the games, they always say that Master Chief is the last Spartan-II because most of the Spartans died on Reach on August 30, 2552. Surprise surprise, the game happens A MONTH BEFORE THE INVASION! What were the Spartans doing to begin with?

At the beginning of GoO weren't there Spartan's fighting at other MAC gun stations during the invasion of Earth before leaving on the Covenant cruiser? Or am I thinking of something else? It has been awhile since I read that one. It wasn't that good.

I haven´t read the novel itself, though I read the plot on Halo Wikia.

Yes, some Spartans survived Reach even after it was glassed. That´s one of the main problems with the game, according to the instruction manual, Master Chief is the last Spartan, but the books clearly state that other Spartans survived. I can ignore that small detail, but Halo: Reach destroyed the whole canon.

See, after the destruction of Halo, Master Chief, Cortana and a few marines who survived those horrible events managed to return to Reach, where they found Halsey and a few Spartans-II. Thanks to their efforts, the Covenant attacked Earth with a pretty reduced army (The Prophet of Regret didn´t knew Earth was our homeworld, main reason he went with THAT army).

Many casualties, Halsey and some Spartans are now trapped in Onyx.

Master Chief, Linda, Kelly, and Fred are the only living Spartan 2's to date.

You do have Grey Team, Black Team, and the Red Team from Halo Wars that are still MIA even in the canon. Grey and Red have three members, while Black has a total of four.

So 14 members of the Spartan 2 class are still alive. Hmm, that also plays along with Bungie's love of seven. Plus seven of those Spartans are black ops, and the other seven are regular Spartans.

No. Those Spartans; Kelly, Linda, Fred, and Will were performing ground operations on Earth.

Yeah, heard of it a few months ago. In a way, I was excited for this because it´s like saying to the fans "hey guys, we made some mistakes, and now we shall correct them because we care for this franchise".

But then, after checking some stuff at Bungie net, there are many angry customers, who say that the changes are barely noticed. For example, a few dates change, like 40 extra pages that have nothing to do with the game (Halo: Reach), and they changed the Covenant fleet number, from 300 to 700+.

Again, at least they tried to repair some of the damage done in Dr. Halsey´s journal, where they explain why Cortana is with Halsey when she should be at the Pillar of Autumn, made more consistent the number of Spartans, and explained why Halsey wasn´t surprised when she met Noble Team (she thought they were Spartans-II and not III).

Oh, and one more last thing, not really sure if they are spoilers, so I´ll simply tag it:

   Many fans always wondered who was Miranda Keyes mother. Many pages from the journal state indirectly that Halsey is her mother. Kinda of awesome, kinda of sucks, especially when seeing how they fucked her character in Halo 3.

Rofl, well technically the spoiler shouldn't be a shock. It is Reach, after all.

Just beat the corvette mision/spaceship fight mission on solo legendary. The space fighting was fine. But I don't know how fucked up the people in Bungie are. Who the fuck puts one person in an open ass ship against 20,000 elites?! It's a good thing that I had the needler rifle and plasma pistol combo throughout the mission or I would've been fucked.

I'm not watching that in fear of spoilers. But I already got the weekly challenge of beating 9 campaign missions on legendary or harder so I am satisfied with myself.

No you didn't; I had already seen it.

The point of my outburst was that you should have used spoiler tags and should in the future, you fuck.
