    It's definitely not far-fetched to think Jun basically ended up like Noble Six--fighting off enemies to ensure escape for the others. Maybe he's out there, but we might never know.
    In the canon comics by Dark Horse that are set before and after Halo 4 Jun survived Reach and is in charge of the Spartan IV program along with some of the washed out Spartan II's (as in those that didn't make it past successful augmentation). He recruited Palmer to the Spartan program after seeing the potential in her. As Spartan IV's were already military soldiers Jun was sort of in charge of moulding the Spartan ethos into then

    Yep. I don't like to bring comics and books into console conversations because some people don't think it crosses over. That's the reason I think he got off though.

    Well, I'm not one to take written works seriously in these matters because they don't necessarily STAY canon. When they put out Reach on 360, my friend complained that a bunch of things from the Fall of Reach book were different. IDK if they were ever declared officially canon or not, though.

    From what I remember, the only inconsistency between Reach and The Fall of Reach is that Noble Six gets Cortana to the Pillar of Autumn with the Master Chief already being in the cryotube (remember the easter egg when you can see chief during the cut scene?). In the book, the Chief is introduced to Cortana before he even gets to the Pillar of Autumn. Fall of Reach is a great book. Eric Nyland is a great writer.

    I read and liked that book. I tried to read the second, which is by a different author, and I gave up really quickly because of how bored I was. Maybe I'll try again someday, we'll see.

    Which is why I never bring up books. Things can change or be foggy in either depending on where you started. The books =/= the Games. Hell I'm sure the TV Series and the live action films wont even be the same.

    Testing my stream Quality. Streams are at twitch.tv/FlagzTV and here's one of my broadcast since I'm not currently streaming. Pretty DECENT. Not HD obviously, but I'd rather save some of that so I can host a game. I made a pretty sick comeback.

    Here's another video, this time uploaded to youtube. I was playing 1080P 60 FPS, but only rendered in 720P 30 FPS. Great gameplay though if you're a Halo Fan.

    Once I heard TMCC was only going to be $60 I got super excited! Something was telling me it was going to be more than that, I'm just glad I was wrong!

    It's really amazing how much you get for a small $60. All the DLC for all the games comes out to $180 if you got them brand new day one, and the games come out to $240.

    I basically spent $520 in my Halo years (more if you include my $40 H2 Vista, multiple H2 disc, multiple H3 Disc including ODST, and Halo CE Anniversary) and I'm getting all that with multiplayer for $60. That's crazy.

    Indeed, that's crazy value for me too, as I've only played the first Halo (and Spartan Assault :P) and even that is so long ago that it's basically a fresh playthrough for me. Obviously you'll see the age in the first games, but I suppose the HD rehash helps a bit with that too.

    I will be buying this for one reason. I never got to play the older games because I have simulation sickness and the frame rate wasn't fast enough on the old systems so I would puke about 5 minutes in. I can't wait to play this.

    Ahh, everyday closer feels long. >_> Went back to my competitive edge today and was playing with some Top 16 professionals. IT WAS AMAZING. Love playing like this, can't wait for the actual release. It's so hard to get games running without official support & Match Making. I miss competing on this level. This is a big reason on why button glitches truly made the skill gap in Halo 2.

    Same for me in Halo 2.

    I had at least over 50 Local LANs, just non stop casual fun man, a few competitive, but not serious. It was a blast, so much Pizza, Gaming, and Socializing.

    4 Competitive LANs including 3 Major MLG Event LANs, never performed in Halo 2. I sunk over 16 thousand games spanning two accounts AFTER rank resets.

    Also in preparation for Halo 2, in the last month I played over 220 hours of Halo 2 Vista. You can just say my skills are gonna be on point. 👌

    Zanzibar (unsurprisingly) was confirmed as the third remade map for Halo 2 remastered multiplayer. Just one more, I hope it's a smaller map!

    One more? I thought there were six.

    Added SDCC to the OP. Here's the link.
    Contains Zanzibar Art H2 Remastered in it! Zanzibar aged quite realistically. Gives me the impression that after H2 it was abandoned and we're finally returning to it. <3 the feels.

    Also the in detailed blur remastering is amazing.
