Your Franchise Sucks: Halo

Halo 4 Tease Secondary 150x150 Your Franchise Sucks: HaloWelcome to our bi-weekly podcast, Your Franchise Sucks, which focuses on why various, iconic franchises are actually garbage. Granted, some of them may be lovable garbage, but garbage nonetheless. This is in no way meant to be a rational, critical examination of a franchise, but rather a group of gamers discussing their love and hatred, rational or not. This week, we reconcile our love for everyone’s favorite brick,Halo”sMaster Chief!

Jen and Jason are joined by new-comer Louie Villalobos, Adam Greene from Marooner’s RockKyle Gaddo from The Gaming Vault and Max Parker from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. They discuss the highs and lows of the franchise and what can only be described as the Master Chief conundrum. Oh, most of us have been drinking heavily.

    Oh, boy, this was freaking fun all the way. I played Halo 3 and ODST and man I liked ODST more, the ODST protagonist is also a brick, but I “felt more like him” than Master Chief.
    I wanted to play Halo 1 and 2 but I needed a hard drive so meh…

    Oh, Jen I didn’t like that thing where you didn’t like the Mario-Chief comparison but it’s the truth DAMMIT. YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!! Master Chief is microsoft’s Mario! Just like sony’s ummmm… Move Wand? Sackboy probably….

    Oh, by the way, HOW COME NOBODY SUGGESTED A WII REMOTE FOR JEN? THOSE THINGS ARE, LIKE, MADE FOR THAT!!!

    I loved the sidetracking of the whole thing too. MS Smash Bros with Master Chief, Marcus Fenix, a Ferrari, Banjo, Kazooie, some Piñatas, Johanna Dark, the Jet Force Gemini protagonists, Shepard?, Soup McTavish?, John Madden?, ummmm….. oh! Splosion Man, some Fable guy, final boss: THE RED RING OF DEATH!!!

    So, I’m going to suffer in the next podcast… I wish I could go and defend some stuff that can be defended, so screw you Mario Party 8.

    Anyway, thanks for making my ride to college so much fun, I burst out laughing every now and then and people look at me!!!
