My...analogy tonight about halo 4's campaign was perfect.
It's a string of anal beads tied to together. You start out in a narrow as fuck linear path then boom big circle filled with enemies to hold RT down until they die, then you get funneled back into the string to the next anal bead. Et cetera. Et Cetera.
Playing the prologue finally. Somebody needs to tell video game writers that excessive amounts of snark, attitude, and exposition grate the brain. Cortana is the worst offender of the first two.
I'm not expecting some fantastic story from a Halo game, or any game for that matter. Just don't make me roll my eyes all the time. Bungie's Halo games had that much courtesy. I can tell I'm in for a Borderlands 2 experience with this game's story right out of the gate.
