Wait a sec guys, heres a good one to help in better pointing out Lux's bullshit. For this I will need the help of Lux himself, or rather a previous post of his:

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

My dear fellow apparition of reality Darkreever, allow me to bring you clarity upon the concepts you seem to be befuddled by.

All takings from the book are canon as long as they do not discredit the showings in the games, that is how multiple levels of canon work when operating with one another.

So tell me, what exactly is it you are trying to convey but are apparently confounded by, due to a lack on abstract processing?

I am here to assist thee my fellow....entity.

For the record, everyone, I'm sorry. I may have just killed us all.

https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...=124819&page=6

Read and you shall understand why he is now using the word "entity" and the words "apparition of reality" to describe darkreever and soon, us. Again, sorry. Didn't think that one post would drive him over the edge. Sorry.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

Is that while they are also launching fire balls from their asses?

Seriously do you even read the "facts" (read that as bollacks) you post? A spartan who is what 8 foot tall if going to wield a thunderhawk which is over 26 meters long as a melee weapon?

That explains why a punch from a Spartan sends a grunt flying into outer atmosphere then...

No complaints from me, I find it to be completely hilarious.

Space marines have better stats in almost all departments

Given equal numbers and an even playing field, I see space marines stomping 9/10

I don't deny that, I'm just not interested in reading them. If you want to sight some, then do so, if you want to criticize my literary choices, then eat a dick pavlova.

In a training exercise (where his life was put on the line because of a jackass admiral wanting to truly test out their abilities and hopefully kill him in the process), John was able to briefly run at 105 km/h but tore his achilles tendon because it wasn't able to endure the stress.
Thanks DeathJester. That's not remotely ridiculous. It's also roughly equal to the speed of a Space Marine.

The games depict Master Chiefs movement speeds a particular way (as I outlined in my last post). You say (and do not support) that the novels depict them differently. However, as you state earlier (as quoted by darkreever) the games are a higher canon. As you state now the books are only canon when they do not discredit the game. Therefore the movement speeds show in the game are accurate and canon, while those depicted in the books are not. "Abstract processing" has nothing to do with it. Logic does, which I think is why you are having trouble with it. I am here to assist thee my fellow... entity.

What's also worth remembering is that Spartan IIs are fond of spawncamping with snipers, so if by some chance they do kill a Space Marine, they can just keep killing him every time he respawns until he ragequits.
