Things that are complete bollocks in games No.2 – The Sabre Program

“A good place to look might be… I don’t know, the nearest nonexistent launch site in the nonexistent Sabre Program, dismissed by three administrations as preposterous rumor… And in which our newest member was certainly never a pilot.” – Kat B320

I do love Halo which is not one of my best kept secrets but this bloody cut scene in Halo: Reach drives me fucking nuts, it’s bollocks for many reasons.

Just look at the size of the building. It’s huge, you can’t even see all of it in that picture and there’s more installations like it, you can see them in the distance as your taking off. No government is stupid enough to deny a building you can see from 50 miles away not even the Korean one, ok well maybe the Korean one.

The other thing that makes it bollocks it the fact it’s a “secret” in the first place. So what, you have armed aircraft capable of space flight. What’s the secret here? is it the weapons? if so which one, the machine gun, or the missiles? Neither would be nothing new and from the average Reach pedestrians point of view, mankind would have been strapping rockets and guns to things that fly for the best part of 600 years.

Maybe it’s the fact that they are capable of space flight? I can kind of see the government not wanting Reaches inhabitants to know about the possibility of man going into space at least until they actually work. That way they can shout “suprise! look we went into space” and everybody will go “WOW you’re awesome, I’ll be voting for you next time”. Which wouldn’t be so hard to swallow…

…if they didn’t happen to be on another planet.
