It has been too damn long. Life has been crazy and took all my attention away from the fun stuff. But everything changes, nothing stays forever and luckily for me, that means that the stressful times will come to an end and I can focus on my nerdy stuff again. Today I have the honor to publish another Girls Love Halo Interview. This time I asked the amazing Alex aka The Halo Diaries. I have known this girl since forever. She is from the olden times of Instagram. I mean around 2012/13. I really don’t know why I haven’t asked her earlier to participate but oh well, here we are and I did it finally. Alex is extremely nice and most importantly a very funny person. Her IG is one of my favorites in the Halo community. She has unique content and doesn’t follow any social media „rules“. She loves 3 big franchises. That is Halo, of course, Overwatch and Assassins Creed. Enjoy!
1. When did you start playing Halo?
I actually started playing Halo pretty late in the game. I grew up watching my younger brother play but never played myself until I got married in 2012. My husband and I bought an original Xbox from the thrift store and spent hundreds of hours playing the campaigns.
2. If you could choose to be one character of the Halo universe, who would you be?
Ohhhh this is a tough one because there are so many awesome characters! If I had to choose, I’d definitely be the Arbiter. He’s by far my favorite character in the Halo universe. I think his journey and story are awesome and I wish I was half as badass as he is.
3. Do you have a favorite Halo quote?
I’d have to say it’s a tie between “Were it so easy” and “I know what the lady’s like”.
4. What do you love most about Halo?
I love the lore and storyline. It’s such a fun world to get lost in! Finding all the terminals was always my favorite part, because I felt they added to the story in a really fun way.
5. What do you hate most about Halo?
I would have to say Halo 5. The music and graphics were beautiful, but the storyline wasn’t strong enough for me. I wished they’d kept Cortana out of the main story and made it more about the Chief and Locke and their fire teams.
6. How would you rate your skills in Halo? (1-10)
I would have to say about a 6, mainly because I can’t snipe anything to save my life 😂
7. What is your favorite Halo game?
I would definitely have to go with Halo 3. I loved playing as the Arbiter and the Chief. It was enough variety to keep me entertained and the story was beautifully written.
8. What do you prefer? Campaign or multiplayer?
If I’m playing by myself, I definitely prefer campaign. It’s an easy way to blow off stress after a long day. If I’m playing with friends definitely multiplayer. Halo 4 Capture the Flag and BTB (for all Halos) were the best.
9. Which games besides Halo do you play?
My two main games are Assassins Creed and Overwatch. I have played others, but those are my current favorites.
10. If you had to endure one level of any Halo game in real life, which one would it be and why?
After thinking long and hard about this one I’d have to say “The Maw” from Halo CE, especially the very end. I just love levels with the warthog and that one is still one of my favorites! I’d love to feel the rush of shooting down the covenant and barely making it at the last second.
Thank you Alex!
