    Default Wow, my 9-yr old brother said something interesting regarding the ending...

    He asked me 'how come the Locust general riding the Reaver at the end didn't chase their chopper and kill them?'

    This is an interesting question! Why DIDN'T the Reaver chase them down at the end? o_O

    Think about this question story-wise. No dumb 'because then we wouldn't have a sequel' answers.

    Wow, that is a good thought.
    I think the Locusts are to stupid to think up that idea though.

    because, he could have killed them, but now, instead of haveing to fight and fight the humans, now the humans are relaxed again, giveing the locust another chance with a suprise attack (another emergance day, if you will)

    thats my 2-cents

    Think about it. A "Rhino Reaver" is huge it could have easily taken down a Raven.
    It also has two chain guns on it making it pretty deadly.

    Because their whole base just got blown up, and in doing this they think the Locust are destroyed, the Locust know this and take advantage, they regain forces, arm up, and get ready for another, bigger war. The COG think they have won, and if they attacked the chopper they would do a follow up attack going into the mines and destroy the remaining.

    So they just regain forces, then attack.

    When Epic first shipped the game they weren't really planning on doing a sequel because they didn't know how good the game will be.

    Actaully if they DID attack there would not be a sequel.
    Because, obviosly the general on the reaver would die.

    Because as said before, a Raven is faster, has greater firepower, is better armored, and if they try to **** with a pumped up cole, he'll just jump on the rhino reaver and crush it to death.

    I find it funny that this forum is one about a rated M games (which are a lot of other epic games products as well) and involves the use of words like F*ck and Sh*t but I still get language filtered here.

    but thats not the point because im old enough to play it (24)

    I think it is because the "General" may have been very important and he couldn't risk his life because he is very important to the locust.
    It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.

    Because the reaver and its rider have a rendezvous with death at some "other" disputed barricade.

    It was not at that moment.

    whats the kids age have to do with the game? come on you can turn the news on and see stuff that is real life and extremely screwed up. the game has always had a movie feel to me......on a side note leave it to a child to point out the obvious for us. i never even thought to think bout it. i was always like "ok cool here comes a part two"
