    Halo: Cryptum

    So the book was released today, I just got my copy delivered earlier but haven't started reading it yet. Anyone else buy or intend to buy this book? As always, use spoiler tags when appropriate.

    From what I've read of this book.
    There are so many things broken by the story that it's almost as bad as legends was.
    I mean, seriously? humans went to war with the forerunners and were devolved by the forerunners?
    This isn't Pokemon where you can just evolve and devolve creatures at a whim..

    Read the synopsis. That sounds like a very bad book.

    Yeah, that's just weird. I'm disappointed in that canon now.

    The point of the Forerunners was that they were supposed to be the most sophisticated and only high intelligence within the galaxy at the time. The Synopsis really just ruined that theme, especially considering there may not even be anything about the Precursors, a Race I'd really rather have been incorporated than what is given at hand. I'll probably still read it because I enjoy Halo Books, but there is seriously so much more that could have been done than this hoo-hah. I hope that Synopsis is either misguided or wrong; if it's not, then this will be the first Halo book I honestly will not enjoy canon-wise.

    I'm not going to bother to pick this one up. It sounds incredibly dumb. It makes the humans, the forerunners and both their struggles much less compelling.

    Halo was uncompelling by the end of Halo 2's plot. I stopped after Ghosts of Onyx, chronologically.

    Wasn't it nicer when we had this great sense of mystery about everything?

    Halo 1's plot was so much better before I knew all the answers. I like what my imagination came up with better than what Bungie did.


    I think Metroid is a pretty cool guy, eh finds missiles and doesn't afraid of anything.

    My thoughts exactly. It's like the Master Chief in his Long Sword at the end of Halo 1 took a wrong turn at Albuquerque and flew into some retarded alternate universe.

    And then when I heard about a Forerunner book, I just knew that it would only serve to piss out the dwindling flame of their mystique
