5 simple reasons they changed it:

1. she's more of a main character so it focuses attention
2. makes the player identify more now that she looks more human
3. artistic license
4. new technology/graphical changes
5. dat ass

Antagonizing me to build a false sense of worth is so damn cute.

I don't care for Chief's appearance being different and the explanation, "LOL I UPGRADED YOU WHILE YOU WERE ASLEEP HURR HURR".


That wasn't the explanation. Cortana said she upgraded his firmware...his HUD. The armor is retconned to be canon from the beginning (or did you not pay attention to any of the cutscenes involving Chief and the old Spartans?)

Cortana's aesthetic changes can be explained by her developing rampancy; as she continues to face the reality that she will never exist, nor be human, she tries to be as close as possible by making herself look more human.

To me, Cortana looked alright before and in 4 she looked like she was starting to get fat. But thats the actual explanation for Chiefs new armor? How did she go about actually doing that?

Damn it, quoted the wrong thing. -_- It's all over now -blam!-!

The Armor was just 343i updating the looks of the armor. Cortana just upgraded the software of the armor, hence the new hud.

Cortana got fat, and thus any emotivity coming out of her came up as a whine more than a deep and sensitive moment.

People should know what fat is these days, considering obesity is such a common thing.

the new armor is just a retcon, plain and simple. She said she upgraded his firmware, meaning his HUD, which is totally doable.

For real, tho. 14 year old kids have no semblance of what normalcy is in regards to a woman's body. If you don't have a big ass, big tits, tiny waste, flat stomach, and skinny everything else, you're a fat slob.

Pure Insanity
The point of war is not to die for one's clan, but it's to make the other bastard die for his
Right before you die, there is always a chance to save yourself, sieze that chance and live to fight another day
The best way to kill someone is to fight them with the same weapons they use and make them know you are better than them, not because of superior weaponry, but because of superior skill.

she (and other AIs) can take any form they want.


AI can not take another avatar form throughout their operational lifespan. It isn't even exactly known how they choose in the first place, but after that they are stuck with it.

Obviously. Since she was nearing rampancy she should have assumed characteristics of an insane person.

- wild eyes
- crazy hair
- unrelenting gaze
- uncontrolled gas/urination

Yes, the misspelled user name is a long, complicated inside-joke.

Disliked her form in 4, she appeared to have front teeth spaced very far apart.
But when I played 3... I had.... thoughts....

Whats retcon? The HUD thing doesnt escape me. Cortana couldnt have made it any clear.

The differences make sense to me because she's an AI, she can choose how she projects herself. However, I do have a huge problem with H3 Cortana being in CEA. She should like the same as she did in CE. As far as I'm concerned, CEA is a non-canon artistic interpretation of CE.
