The books never really stated S-III's couldn't be at Reach...

I don't think that's canon to say they're S-IIIs. Unless some crack job at bungie decided he/she was going to add his/her own speculation/story into it. Which is by all means how bungie declares anything "canon".

You know what Bungie are starting to remind me of? George f**king Lucas, in which any shite written badly by some retarded baby is considered canon. Like how now, Chewbacca (SP?), is officially dead. He died when a moon fell on to him. I mean....WTF!? Now, Bungie seem to both add and ignore random shit, making the books, games and the Halo Wikia three different universes.

Actually, that new guy that starts off that shiny trailer IS an S-III. Like it or not.

How so?

It was confirmed in the trailer.

The little guy walked into the field command outpost, and Jorge (the BIG Spartan) looked over at your guy and says "Didn't think anyone survived Pegasi sir."

Pegasi? The place the S-III's were sent, and slaughtered.

Game over, debate finished. That new guy is an S-III.

Honestly, I don't see what the big problem is. It was never stated there were no other Spartans (II's or III's) at Reach, ever.

The problem isn't that we don't if is is an S-III or not. That part, we don't really care about. It's the fact that it was confirmed in the books that everyone was dead, and that Bungie seem to just add

shit in whenever they feel like it, whether it makes sense or not. Holy shit, y'all! I'm typing without looking at the keyboartd while watching csi miami!






Hehehehe....I was distracted by shooting and somehow kept typing. Man, I'm awesome.

I'l willing to bet there is already a Halo armour mod in GTA:SA that works when the hot coffee mod is installed......although now I want to find it. And play SA.

The whole thing with the SPARTAN-III is an easy fix. The main character is a SPARTAN-III, the rest are not. And it doesn't contradict the books at all. From Tom, Lucy, and Kurt's viewpoint, no other S-III's survived TORPEDO, but they have a limited view. Ackerson is well known as being a sneaky bastard, and its quite likely that another S-III survived Pegasi III and was hidden by Ackerson and turned into his personal agent.

But...you...ugh....

The story in game story is not the problem. It's that Bungie are now putting things into a story that they should just leave alone, when there is already a version out there. It's like if Lucas were to remake the original movies....only utterly change them.

Don't you think that Bungie has already planned this out? There's a reason for having the spartan III here, and it wasn't just made up on the spot. I'm quite certain that this has all been planned out ahead of time and it only looks odd to us gamers because we have a limited view.

I guess. But while that closes one problem, it opens another, being 'limited view'. It feels like they're becoming.....HOLY SHIT! BUNGIE ARE THE WRITERS FOR LOST! It's the only way to explain what they are doing, by keeping everyone in the dark and the only reason people stick around is to see what the f**k is going on! (Or in Halo's case, the multiplayer)

or maybe a secret group of Spartan IV's have infiltrated to! and all those who survived became ODST's fits the part ODST armour detail.

Well that's what I used to think in the earlier games until they outright admitted in several interviews they made most of it up as they went along. The biggest excuse being "because it looked cooler".

Yeah, I remember something about that. Not to mention the rumours of the Halo Story bible bollocks only started flying around during development of H3, as far as I can remember.

No, the Halo Bible has been around. It's just that, unlike those silly Christians, Bungie isn't afraid to change their bible.
