    So is Cortana being voiced by someone else? Sounded like it.

    Title says it all!

    I'll be kicking some Covenant a-hole come Holiday 2012.

    It'll be interesting to see 343's take on the universe. Couldn't really tell much from the E3 trailer though.

    Not sure wasn't she half way going rampart or close to in halo 3 already.
    yep she went through rampancy
    http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Cortana#Rampancy


    Kinda halo lore nerd but why do i have a feeling we will be upgrading chief armor to combat old forerunners that are in the shield worlds. The military class was for shield worlds to survive the halo firing and combat the flood. And there being way more shield world then halo rings big chances are they are coming back.

    spoilered this for the people that dont want to know my shitty next theorie on the new trilogy
    Got some more info about forerunners combat skins from one of the halo wikia
    http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Combat_Skin

    Nice quote from the link
    Concept art of a forerunner combat skin?
    And the mjolnir suit being modulair halo reach modules i could see them upgraded the suit kinda like a modular mech game so to say. singleplayer will have multiple modules multiplayer will act more like reach except no armor lock:wink:

    And prehistoric humans were old enemies of the forerunners Halo:Cryptum kinda logic bomb the whole universe oke atleast adds a whole new time era for games to go for. And make Halo a franchise can easily go on for 2~3 more console generations if handled well.

    So the triangle would be Forerunner vs humans vs Some other form of flood mendicant bias the ai that joined the flood could bring in robot kind of enemies so a cybernetic kind of enemies part flood part forerunner robot tech.

    I don't think the humans ever battled the Forerunners; rather, they are decendents of the Forerunners. Supposedly, that realization is what prompted the Prophets to start a war against the humans. Read Contact Harvest.

    Cryptum explicitly states the Human/Sanshyum alliance against the Forerunners. I know, there are lots of weird continuity issues, but there's a lot of information. The Forerunners also have some sort of genetic memory capability as well. The humans were also the only ones who could stop the Flood (whatever that means), so the Forerunner* may have wanted to make their tech compatible with them from an accessibility standpoint.

    *There are different political factions of Forerunner, so "Forerunner" doesn't apply to everyone of the race/species at a given time (things can change!). There are some who want to save life more than others, and some take different courses of action on the big scale. So... take that to mean what you will for the moment until the next books arrive. :p In the context of choosing the Humans as Reclaimers, that would be up to the particular individual Forerunners who ended up activating the Halos as there certainly were other Forerunner who just wanted to commit genocide and didn't foresee the fall of their race.

    I know Guilty Spark mentioned "You ARE Forerunner", but his state of mind makes it a dubious statement. He could be confusing things with that "Mantle" business. Forerunner and Humans are different species.

    Cryptum is Greg Bear's first novel in a trilogy about the fall of the Forerunner. :) * I made a bunch of additions/edits above btw

    It is a 343 project with Greg Bears. A trilogy about the forerunners.
    Cryptum was the first entree of the trilogy.

    Why do I get the feeling 343 is going to make a mess of my beloved Halo?
