So there is no confirmation that the planet in the Teaser is Onyx, all we know is that it is the same planet that we see at the end of Halo3.
Lets play with the thought that this is Onyx and that we might be meeting up with he rest of Blue Team, Fred, Linda and Kelly. We don't know if Halo 4 will include 4 player Co-op, but if it does, how awesome would it be to be able to play as the rest of Blue Team. Like we did in Halo 3 with the three Elites and Master Chief.
If this happens would it be the best Halo game ever?
It would be great to see them incorporate the novels and bridge between the games. I would love to see "Ghosts of Onyx" tied into the games, and that would be the perfect way to do it.
As most of have beaten Halo 3 on Legendary, seen the Master Chief go into cryo, then the trailer of Cortana waking him up, how bad -Yoink!- would it be to see a planet of sentinels, forerunner tech, and new/old faces together? The only consistency problems I would see would be the "what happened to Jun-A266?" and how can they explain Jun not being in Halo First Strike if he appears in this game since he was never officially KIA/MIA in Reach, last we saw him he was escorting Dr. Halsey to the tunnels, Halsey was found in "First Strike" by Blue team, no Jun-A266. So... how could they tie him in as well? http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Jun
Halo: First Strike
Halo: Ghosts of Onyx
Four player COOP with hop in hop out style... I would like this very much, but how about with this as a thought... they game difficulty adjusts to having more players present, ex, more players equals more enemies, and higher hitpoints allotted till the additional player hops out, also, when they additional player is not present, only one AI assist per level similar to REACH.
I just hope that 343 pulls in the reigns a bit with what is cannon and what is not. The MESS that was made with REACH was terrible, Bungie should be embarrassed by all the mistakes between the books that their staff writers gave assistance to and the outcome of the story. I challenge 343 studios to one-up the research and fact checking.
A game is good when it is playable and fun, but in the SCI-FI world where a whole universe has been developed, fans know as much as the creators about timeline and events. So a great game accounts for both fun, and factual.
Just saying on the FRED, LINDA, KELLY, and the Master Chief, it would be great, but they need to account for loose ends first. (for the sake of argument, I know the difference, a book is a book, a game is a game, don't use this argument on me please, as the argument I have built is about bridging the books and the games better than previously done with REACH)
