with infinite auraAnd 343 industries, Microsoft wants the sixth major entry in long-run shooting franchise To feel like a soft reboot of the series, especially regarding the relationship between Master Chief and AI Cortana Companion. After her supposed death at the end Halo 4 And Halo 5 Set her up as a digital dictator who recruits other artificial intelligence systems to control the universe were decisions Fans curse himAnd No final in a strange place. Do you want to skate by events Halo 5 And focus on a new adventure, or do you want to address the previous one directly?
The answer is…sort of, but in a kind of weird way. And this is mostly because of this center Hello The relationship between Master Chef and Cortana.
It was revealed before the release of the game a large part of infinite The story concerns the new friend of AI, Weapon (voiced long ago Hello Vet Jane Taylor… Well, Cortana sounds). Created by the UN Security Council with the express intent to arrest and remove Cortana for her past crimes in Halo 5, the weapon is just as witty as its predecessor, but is coded as much smaller and more exotic. With wide eyes gazing at pioneering architecture and naive nature, the dynamic between her and Chief seems to be 343 swaying in the make dad game that AAA developers (in particular Of which From Sony, about men who reckon with children and dead women in their lives) like to indulge in it from time to time. The writing fully embraces this as the weapon breaks down jokes about the Chief’s stoic individual characters, and names a new type of alien foe that is being confronted in No final called infinity. Sometimes these new youthful spins work, for example when you give an impassioned talk to a frustrated pilot in a way Mr. Chief wasn’t quite emotionally equipped to do. Other times, it’s a really naked attempt at nostalgic fans of the original Hello By 343, even as the charisma between boss Steve Downs and Taylor’s AI manages to make it legitimate enough that you don’t mind the obvious bait.
how many Hello Infinite The narrative regarding these two will depend entirely on how you feel about Chief and Cortana’s relationship from previous games. Reading their relationship as romantic in some way has never been so difficult, even if it’s just a joke, and both this game and Halo 3 Use mysterious visions to show how Chief struggles to deal with his longtime partner who is no longer around, and a lot of Halo 4The Master Chief story also saw a struggle with the prospect of losing Cortana forever. When walking through the leading structures in No final The boss will occasionally listen to Cortana’s voice, making it clear that she will be on his mind forever because of the years they spent together. The weapon, serves as a replica of this woman he takes care of And A reminder of what he could lose again, baffles the boss. However, as always, he is unable to properly express those fears or concerns beyond a few words most of the time.
as much No final He wants you to feel like you’re playing the original game again but on a new Xbox, it just can’t get rid of it Halo 5Narration Luggage. When the game addresses its ex directly, it can’t help but be a ping-pong between being about a guy learning to be a parent and a guy who can’t stop seeing his ex in his new partner. Since full weapon A copy of Cortana, but if the couple hasn’t met before, The boss is all set for fail-safe startup who will delete them if he needs to. It even goes so far as in-game flashbacks reveal that Cortana’s quest for the AI revolution is at its peak Halo 5 He saw her super mechanical weapons, the guards, destroying the home world No finalThe primary villain, the outcast leader Atriox. However, since his ex is no longer around, Chief has to take the hits that were originally intended for Cortana itself.
After the weapons learn that the boss is ready to activate her security system at any moment, they begin to become passive aggressive. Valid because she has to shoot the Chief and tell you about the fail-safe to the pilot so he can take her side, the mission where all this happens really Shows how small you intend to be. When she explodes at Chief and begs him to trust her after she’s done nothing but help, the moment doesn’t go down as intended because it seems like a natural flashpoint in the Chief’s relationship and the gun relationship, and more there because that’s exactly what the story of single parents is all about. who have children In the end . But if you think about the relationship between Chief and Cortana – as 343 invites you to make the weapon a direct copy of it – these hostile interactions read as stranger than the game might intend. It’s a remixing of that symbiotic relationship from the past, yes, but the romantic connotations of that relationship are still there, too, though… No final She does her best not to go down that road again.
by No finalIn conclusion, the President and the Arms (who decided to call themselves, though not telling us what) have learned to trust each other, and the President himself is given some semblance of peace with his former partner. Players eventually discover that Cortana has apparently perished for good during the events between them Halo 5 And No final, discovering the message she’s leaving for the president as an apology for her past actions, and passing the torch in terms of their partnership with the gun – in the hope that the two will be self-aware enough to prevent the circumstances that doomed Cortana Halo 5 from happening again. While the 343 game trilogy had no problem portraying Chief and Cortana’s relationship as a tragic romance, whatever they’re going to do with him and the gun now that that flame has been passed has to find some focus, so it doesn’t feel like a re-tread. Strange to what came before.
