343 has just released a mini-doc of Halo 5's story. They seem super keen to get across the drama of the story. This is a simple story about simple people. Emotions. Stuff like that.
But also explosions.
I continue to be super excited for Halo 5: Guardians, but I can't even remember what's going on in the story. I've always been that slack-jawed buffoon that sort of shoots things and gapes at the spectacle of it all.
I don't think that's necessarily my fault. Outside of the first Halo, I believe the series has been pretty terrible at explaining its increasingly labyrinth-like plotting. Halo 4 was no exception. The single player campaign was great, but the exposition. Dear God. Not only was it painful but it was confusing.
Still, it looks super good. I will be playing the hell out of this video game.
