Why? Why have Bungie taken the best Alien baddies ever and decided to make them goodies? I am talking about the Elites here. For Halo 2 and 3, the Elites are going to be the good guys. And that is shit. The Elites in Halo 1 were seen as ugly, nasty monsters that dominated everything else because they were so nasty. But for Halo 2, they were changed. They spoke English, they said funny things, and you could also play as one. Which teamed up with the humans to stop Halo 2 from firing. Remember Alien vs Predator? they made the Predator the good guy at the end, which ruined the whole point of it. Like the Elites, the Predator was designed to be a horrible looking ugly thing that would kill whithout batting an eylid. It was designed to be bad. The whole bad-guy-turning-good thing worked in Terminator 2, because it changed it in a positive way. But fot Halo 2 and 3, it just dosnt work. The Elites have nothing for you to hate anymore. At the end of Halo 3, Humans will have won the war (unless Bungie changes it to be different, and knowing them it will be) with the help of the Elites and others, who are now a little pissed so have joined us, despite kicking the shit out of us for years. Oh, so thats alright then. Thats like being mugged, but then the mugger has his wallet nicked so he says sorry and expects you to help him. My point is this: Elites make perfect bad guys, because theyre aliens and theyre very nasty. Its a bit late now, though, so there is little point to this message.
Nothing to hate? What about the Brutes? They are named that for a reason. Did you look at the ET TU BRUTE? vidoc cause the brutes look sick. Though I think they a bunch of elite wanabes.
Yeah, i know about the Brutes, but theyre crap. Im talking about the original Elites. I know wat u mean though.
I reckon a twist in Halo 2 is ending up with all 4 factions fighting. The Covvie-human alliance will break down and all will war for a single thing. Well, I think they will. Covenant were too cool as enemies to let them be allies.
You might not fight along Elites at all, it just said Elites have aligned with the humans, NOT fighting with them. could merely be a peace treaty, or that elites will fight by themselves.
Yeah, they are too cool to be allies. But I think that what might happen is a version of what you said in that other message. All the allies might break up, but there will be a small few that wont - The MC, Arbiter, SGT jonson, That weirdo bitch that pissed me off, That white Elite commander who should have been in it a bit more, SGT Stacker, That other SGT, And a few Marines, Elites and (Maybe) Grunts.
I didn't make it!
I want to play as a grunt that would be wicked... but for the most I dont like playing as Covenant:smokin:
I think it would be good for the Elites to become the humans allies, Bungie has to have the humans win at the end of Halo 3, or they will probably be getting a lot of e-mails. Plus if they win and the Elites are not allied with them, the Elites are going to get :0wned:. The Elites are everyones favourite alien, so :mad: if Bungie doesn't side them with the humans.
Guys who says the humans are going to win the war in Halo 3? The war might still continue on, Bungie said that Halo 3 is the end of the Mastercheif STORY ARCH! But that doesn't mean there couldn't be more halo games continuing the story, just not with MC in it. Finishing the fight might just mean MC has stopped the covenant from activating the ark and stopped the invasion of of Earth.
