Girls Love Halo Interview with Alex

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”.

Fotu_GLH_Alex_44.   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.

Girls Love Halo Interview with Rebecca

Another Interview, another inspiring woman. Rebecca aka Bonks is a writer and narrative designer. She has worked on Mutant Football League and is the creator and writer of Shero and Vex, a free webcomic. As you may know from the latest article on here she also writes for SugarGamers and approached me for an Interview. She lives in Chicago with her husband and is an overall bad ass woman. Let’s hear her Halo story. Enjoy!

1. When did you start playing Halo?

Right at the start of the party with CE when it came out.

2. If you could choose to be one character of the Halo universe, who would you be?

First one that comes to mind is Veronica Dare. Her position in intelligence is often a thankless one, and it can make it hard for her to maintain friendships, I relate to that hahaha. She also gets to torture Buck and yet he still puts out, what a trooper. However, she’s earned her authority by making the unpopular decisions no one wants to make. She has to have a lot of faith and trust in herself, I definitely could afford a little more self confidence.

3. Do you have a favorite Halo quote?

One that sticks out comes from Jun, he’ll say it to you when you’re idol. „I kill the enemy, but do not hate them.“ It’s a damn fine quote for something that is essentially filler, also made me fall for him hard. Actually, my husband and I both love that quote. My husband is a retired marine who saw combat in Iraq and can relate to this quote on a very personal level. As a someone who has written for games, I really appreciate this line, there is clear evidence of research and dedication to the character’s persona.

4. What do you love most about Halo?

The universe is expansive and for the most part maintains good continuity. The game play is as addictive as the lore. Also, the female Spartans never suffered anything that included boob cups, crop top armor or panty lines. The armor for the women was always legit, right from the start. Halo also recognized the importance of women in the franchise early on.

Girls Love Halo Interview with Chrysann

Another year, another Halo Interview. This time I have asked a long time acquaintance from Instagram who goes by the name of Knightinwhite. She is a Halo/Skyrim photographer and car enthusiast. She met her husband through Halo while playing Reach. That alone is the best story. Let’s see what she has to say about Halo. Enjoy!

1.  When did you start playing Halo?

I started playing Halo later than most people, I got my first Xbox when I was 15, and started playing Halo CE, but I had no internet at the time and only played the campaign. Shortly after finishing CE, I got Halo 3 and Halo Reach.

2. If you could choose to be one character of the Halo universe, who would you be?

I would probably want to be Noble 6. Although he dies, he was a nameless hero, an underdog, he was the new guy, the guy no one thought would have so much meaning to his existence. When all was lost, he completed his mission, putting Noble team’s name on the board.

3. Do you have a favorite Halo quote?

„Wake me, when you need me…“ It’s such a classic, and also the username of the guy I fell in love with.

4. What do you love most about Halo?

Halo, for a very long time, was the only Xbox game I owned. I had little interest in other games for a while. What I love most about the game (Up until about Halo 5) was the in-depth story. The beautiful connection between Bungie and players. (and even the new connection with 343i during Halo 4) The Halo storyline was unmatched by any other game or even book. See you star side, Bungie.

Girls Love Halo Interview – Boys Edition with Thomas

The second Boys Edition is out. This time I asked Thomas aka Halo Scotland to answer my 10 questions. My description of Thomas? True Scotsman, you won’t understand him if you are in a party with him, makes funny noises when he is playing Halo, used to be a descend Sniper (hehehe), takes amazing Screenshots and has a special type of humor. Which I understand and like very much. We met on Instagram over four years ago. Along this Interview you will see some of Thomas favorite screenshots. Enjoy!

1.  When did you start playing Halo?

Be warned I’m awful at writing about myself, way better talking to someone but here goes. I first started playing Halo when CE first came out. Well kinda, I just held the controller while my dad played. I was only 4 years old at the time so the old motor controls weren’t up to scratch to play an fps. If I had to say when I really got into it I’d say it was half way through Halo 3’s release. Yes I missed out on Halo 2 when it came out, what of it? I was a Sony Pony at the time.

2. If you could choose to be one character of the Halo universe, who would you be?

I would have to say…. See the suicidal Marine in Halo: Reach. Yea. That guy.

3. Do you have a favorite Halo quote?

„Fate had us meet as foes, but this Ring will make us brothers.“ Because the quote itself just shows how far the Chief and Thel Vadam had to go in order to save not only themselves but the galaxy from the Halo rings planned detonation.

4. What do you love most about Halo?

Now most people would say that they love the story but in all honesty I just love the screenshot community and the creativity it has birthed into the games. I started in Halo 4 because of you Lena and now 5 years later I’m happy to say I haven’t improved at all.

5. What do you hate most about Halo?

MCC. NEXT QUESTION PLEASE!!!!

Girls Love Halo Interview with Autumn

We are back with another Interview. I am very proud to have the talented Autumn aka Sh3Wolf on board. As many of you know she is a well known Screenshot artist in the Halo community since the Reach days. She was featured on Waypoint several times and she constantly manages to surprise her followers with stunning Screenshots. Let’s hear about her Halo story. Enjoy!

1.   When did you start playing Halo?

I started playing Halo probably around late 2009. Halo 3 was actually my first Halo. I was watching YouTube videos and came across Halo 3 videos and I just had to have the game which lead me to getting most of the other Halo games. Then in late 2012 I started doing Reach screenshots and eventually ended up being featured on Halo Waypoint and that really boosted my screenshot career.

2.   If you could choose to be one character of the Halo universe, who would you be?

I’m not really sure who I’d be. If I had to be someone it’d probably be Linda. She’s an amazing Sniper. However, my favorite character is the Grave-mind.

3.   Do you have a favorite Halo quote?

I actually don’t have a favorite Halo quote.

4.   What do you love most about Halo?

Probably the uniqueness. It’s not really that unique anymore sadly it’s gone more to the generic side of FPS. But the earlier Halos were very unique for the time. Only 2 weapons at a time, no sprint, and the story and lore is amazing. Plus all the other things you can do in the game like forge and screenshots. It’s just a really cool series alongside a really cool community.
