Its Master Jawa! But yeah, the cloak is dumb. His armor is good for deep space, a bit of sand and desert woudnt do squat to it.
Well just because the armor can protect his body against the vacuum of space it doesn't mean sand can't build up in area's where it can hinder the armor's performance. Now the shield should block out sand, but there are some things to consider. Is his shield device broken? partially broken? Is there something wrong with the power supply? Is the power supply infinite? And even if we ignore all that its just a teaser trailer and like with halo 4 the part shown in the teaser most likely won't play out the same way in the actual game.
And besides its just a cloak even if it doesn't serve any real purpose other than to look cool its not as if it impedes the Chief's abilities in any significant way.
"Your journey begins"
Huh? Did they not know about the previous 5 Halo Games? This is a well established journey at this point. That journey is well on it's way. A lot has happened so far, on that journey. Also, why did whatever that was sound like a Reaper from Mass Effect?
Think of it this way, in the past Halo games Master Chief's adventures basically involved him rescuing humanity from some threat or another. He did what he did because it was is duty, his purpose. However, this time it looks like the Master Chief has a personal agenda (as evident by the Cortana "dog tag") and his mission may not have anything to do with his duty(maybe he's AWOL).
If that's what they are going for then I'm all for it. Its basically what I wanted halo 4 to be, to show the more personal and human side of the Master Chief (granted Halo 4 did do this to a small degree).
I mean, even if there was a couple of holes in it, why the full body cloak?
I disagree I thought it looked cool. As for why the cloak, maybe its all that was on hand at the moment and if that's the case what do you expect him to do?
Anyway, despite being a huge Halo fan since the first game, I might have to pass on this until Microsoft either gives the XBOX 1 a significant price drop or revokes the DRM thing...hey a man can dream.
Also, who here didn't think this was a Destiny trailer at first.
