On the Flood’s Endgame

Motives and goals are the key to any conflict, though the endgame, what everything is building towards, may not always be clear. You might think it strange that I’m choosing the Flood, of all foes, as an example of this. Surely, you say, their goal is singularly to just infect everything and everyone, right? Yes, you’re […]

On the Librarian, Vanity, and Reclamation

We’ve covered some interesting topics recently, wouldn’t you agree? Forerunner architecture, the ever-present ambiguities of the connection between humans and Forerunners, the San’Shyuum and their potential role in the Reclaimer Saga’s future… There’s a common theme in all of these posts.

Of course, one of the main ones that came to mind […]

Destiny – Beta Impressions

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, bridge, or some variation of the sort, you’ll be well aware that Bungie released a beta for their upcoming game Destiny. Having invested a significant amount of time playing it, and having had a few days to collect my thoughts, I thought I’d write up my impressions of […]

Halo 5 – The Ark Theory

You may recall last October that I made a lengthy post on this subject which covered a few basic areas of where I think the story of the next Halo game is going to go (Halo: Xbox One – What’s Going To Happen?). Time has passed since then, in that time we’ve had quite a bit […]
