In Response To: Let's Play Halo:CE pt 3 (VikingBoyBilly)

: Captain Keyes has been captured and is being held on a covenant ship called
: the Truth and Reconciliation. What is with these names, anyway? Is there a
: convention or theme to these? Anyway, the truth and reconciliation is
: floating out in a desert and we have to go there to board it. Everyone
: else that was left on the Pillar of Autumn was killed.

Does Cortana say that everyone left on the Pillar of Autumn was killed? I don't remember that being part of the story - I thought the Covenant took more prisoners than usual this time around.

: After that's FINALLY done, I get some more marines so we can board the Truth
: and Reconciliation. Also, the captain controls the system via a neural
: network, just like the glanded pfhor captain of Tycho's ship.

I assume you mean that Captain Keyes used to control the Pillar of Autumn via a neural connection, because yes, that's correct.

: The next map is Belly of the Beast, and it certainly is a new map this time,
: yet the list of saves says I'm still in "truth." Is the names on
: the saves chapters? I think they must be chapters.

I usually think of it the other way around, with 'maps' meaning the whole thing that the list of saves refers to (like 'Halo', 'Truth & Reconciliation', or 'Assault on the Control Room'), and 'chapters' meaning the little uniquely named segments like Reunion Tour or Belly of the Beast.

: Geez, I didn't count,
: but I bet I just had to power through 7 waves of those guys. What bull
: s'pht. Maybe it was a mistake to play Legendary.

I've only ever beaten one level on Legendary (namely, the very first one, the Pillar of Autumn), and I've only done so once or twice, maybe three times max. By contrast, I've played every level on Heroic at least three times, and I've played Pillar of Autumn dozens and dozens of times on Heroic. If only there was a level of difficulty in-between Heroic and Legendary - the former is almost too easy, and the latter is way too hard. That's rushed production for you. :)

Vale,
Perseus
