I have the strangest feeling that, after seeing that picture of Burnie and Gavin in front of blurred out monitors, and after Burnie going to Seattle, that behind that Wall is something to do with Halo 4. Just speculation though.
That would be epic, and a great way to promote their stuff, you know because they did the map packs to :P And by the time we'll find out whats behind the wall, there will be so much more released, so that.. well you know, its not even that big of premier.
They also did the transitional videos from Halo 2 into Halo 3 (and it's BETA). I still think it'd be a big premier. It might be a few weeks from now, seeing as the episodes of RvB:Wall filmed in Reach could have been done in-house, so we probably won't see behind the wall for a few weeks, maybe. It's wishful thinking, but, hey; I can't wait to see some Halo 4 Spartans bob their heads and talk to each other.
I remember seeing Halo Waypoint tweet the pix of Burnie and Gavin with the blured screens. And at first I just thought they where doing a commercial of some kind, but your specualtion does seem to make sense.
I wonder... am I a bad person for liking "Wall" and the previous Waypoint mini-series more than I liked Season 9? I guess I'm enjoying the flashback to the origins of RvB: A bunch of useless idiots, stuck in a box canyon and getting into ever more improbable misadventures whilst allegedly trying to fight a war that is so pointless that no-one can actually explain it! The driving force of both "maxi-series" so far has been the comic interaction between the characters. As much as I enjoyed The Recollection Trilogy, I do think that RvB needs to rediscover this in the main seasons or they're going to start losing fans.
The latest episode is very funny, espeically the inter-Red banter and Church and Tucker's argument. I'm just wondering how long it will take the Reds to realise that all they need is to 'borrow' the Blues' Falcon to get over the wall. Given that Sarge is using it as an opportunity to try to kill Grif (again), I'd say it'll be quite a while before that much logic becomes involved.
Still... maybe Shiela won't mind going on a road-trip with Simmons and Lopez. The two stock AIs have to rediscover their romance somehow, after all!
In reply to BenRG, #7: Nah, not a bad person at all. In a way, I feel the same way about it. I honestly stopped watching season 9 about half way through, and waited a very long time before finishing it. However I DID watch every waypoint special, or anything not related to season 9. It's not really the box-canyon that makes it better. Just the interactions between the Reds and Blues, not having some super serious story over their head, which takes more time to explain, which leaves less time for classic RvB antics. (As a side note; season 3 is my favorite.)
This. Part of the reason why the Epsilon story in Season 9 failed so much was because they was so little interaction amongst the Reds and the Blues. What makes Red vs Blue Red vs Blue is interactions amongst the two rival groups. In Season 9, that barely happened.
This is just a guess, but I think that this was the last episode; after all, we've seen what's on the other side of the wall: a small stretch of grass followed by another wall.
Most normal people wouldn't be satisfied with that but Sarge has never been what I'd call "normal"
Upon watching it again, (I know, I watch too much RvB) it does seem like it could be the last one. There's the whole "case closed" thing by Sarge, the Falcon is destroyed (it isn't in Season 9 proper), and the Warthog can just be fixed by Lopez.
I'm still gonna hope for a new episode next Saturday though. This will be the shortest mini-series so far otherwise. =(
Indeed this was sadly too short for my liking. I would have liked just one more episode.
Indeed, for my sake of mind, I am going to consider "MIA" and "Wall" as one mini-series, as they pretty much are the same concept: classic Red vs. Blue set between episodes 6-9 of Season 9 in the Epsilon Unit.
It was fun to have 9 episodes of classic Red vs. Blue. Just the Blood Gulch canyon and hilarious bickering.
