[SF]New Halo Novel From Author Greg Bear In January - Page 2

post #11 of 35
I really liked Darwin's radio and sequel. Always meant to read the Way series. He's a good writer. Can't hurt him or the Halo IP to have him spin a yarn or two.

This is awesome. I love the halonovel series. I read it all in chronological order last year during the summer, it only took me a week and it was just addicting for me that I was just craving for more

You know, if you bothered to check out like say, the amazon page for the book, you'll see it pretty much has nothing to do with the games and is all about the Forerunners and is told from thee perspective of a Forerunner. Personally I think Greg Bear will excel in this area, so why not just stop the mindless bandwagon hate for the Halo games. In fact, if you had read ANY of the novels, you'd realize how good they actually are, far far better than the games.

I still need get the books. I know some people were mad cause the.game did not follow the book series at all. I simply said the game was made before the books. The developers can do what ever they want to the game.

I was mad becauser Reach which happened before the Halo books they had sprint, bubble shells, and armor lock and all kinds of stuff and when the next version of Spartan aka. John from Halo shows up then this stuff is just gone. I expect the game to be different from the books because if they are the same then there is nothing new.

I would like to see books written from the Arbiter's perspective.

What? The Halo Universe is great and has a lot of potential. It's just not told the best in the games, and how would it? It's an FPS focused on multiplayer. Not a RPG like mass Effect.

Greg Bear's a good writer, I loved Darwin's Radio. His pacing and writing style are a little slow for my tastes so he's not one of my top favorites, but he's definitely a good 'un. I'm interested in seeing what he does with the Forerunner.
