It has been too long since the last Girls Love Halo Interview. That is for sure. But now we are back in the game with an absolute die hard Halo fan. Maria aka The Lone Gun Girl was so kind as to answer the usual 10 questions. I have been following her for a long time now and I am always full of joy to see new items in her collection. Her carefully arranged pictures are a must see. Enjoy!
1. When did you start playing Halo?
Even when I first played Combat Evolved in 2002 along with my cousins I never felt any interest in the franchise until 2012 when a guy that I used to date told me about its story.
I’m a Sci-Fi fan since Kinder Garden days, so it was love at first sight between Halo and me when I first read about the Halo Array, the Forerunners, the Spartans and even the Flood, lol.
I like to say that I’m a Halo fan since 2012.
2. If you could choose to be one character of the Halo universe, who would you be?
No doubt I choose Catherine Halsey.
After reading the Kilo Five Trilogy I found out I feel strongly connected to the character in ways I never experienced before with any other character from any other franchise, that’s saying a lot.
But don’t be scared I’m not going to kidnap children to turn them into soldiers, lol.
3. Do you have a favorite Halo quote?
I can’t pick just one, what about one from a book and one from a videogame?
There is a quote from Glasslands about Halsey that left me speechless the first time I read it. „…but she accepted that her ability to forget about people when she no longer needed them wasn’t an admirable quality…“ I love to read the books, they let us get to know each character more beyond the videogame, and it’s awesome to know their strenghts, their fears, their doubts, their beliefs, see them as human beings like you and me.
And a quote from videogames, I think I’m in love with the Ur-Didact’s speech in H4’s epilogue.
4. What do you love most about Halo?
I love the atmosphere the videogame, the music, the books and the comics can create when they merge as one.
I mean, I challenge you to read some lines from Cryptum (Forerunner Saga) while listening to Legacy (H4’s OST) and I promise you it will be mind blowing.
5. What do you hate most about Halo?
Fans asking for piracy.
6. How would you rate your skills in Halo? (1-10)
Huh, not so good, like 8.
7. What is your favorite Halo game?
Can’t pick just one, HCE and H4 are my favorites.
8. What do you prefer? Campaign or multiplayer?
9. Which games besides Halo do you play?
Sci-fi games like Mass Effect, Titanfall and Quantum Break etc.
10. If you had to endure one level of any Halo game in real life, which one would it be and why?
Halo 4, „Forerunner“ level.
Reason, I feel strongly attracted to Forerunners, I want a close-up of Ur-Didact, lol.
Thank you Maria!
