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.

Halo: Bad Blood by Matt Forbeck released

The latest Halo novel is upon us. Praise Matt Forbeck. Halo: Bad Blood was released on June 26th and follows our good old friend Edward Buck, former ODST badass and now proud Spartan. The predecessor of this book is Halo: New Blood, also written by Matt Forbeck. In that book, we have seen Buck become a Spartan. Then Halo 5 came and we saw Buck the Spartan in action. I personally prefer him to be an ODST but that is just my opinion.

Bad Blood is the first big lore that is given to us after the events of Halo 5. To my knowledge, the only past Halo 5 lore we had before Bad Blood was the Rossbachs World story in Fractures.

In Bad Blood, we follow Blue Team and Team Osiris as they struggle to figure out what evil Cortana is up to. Buck is given a secret mission and reforms his old squad Alpha Nine to accomplish said mission.

Since I haven’t read both books yet I can’t really say more and probably shouldn’t either way. We all have to read it anyway, right? Right? I am really looking forward to reading both books. I have always loved Buck and of course Veronica Dare. But since time is precious and I have all sorts of other things to do, I’m way behind with the books. The next book on my Halo to do list is Shadow of Intent.

Have a grand time reading whatever, but make sure it’s Halo.

 

Do you even Halo or random thoughts of the Day

Nowadays when I play Slayer, I often get frustrated. The map rotation is at it’s worst it seems. My all time favorite map Plaza never comes up. NEVER! It’s like 343 knows that I like this map and wants to punish me for something I did. I always end up playing on Mercy. This map comes up every time I start Slayer. I hate Mercy.

Lord have Mercy.

My boyfriend and I also checked out the Weapon Tuning Test. I couldn’t get a kill. It seems like the BR is now 5 shots? I didn’t look it up so far. Maybe I should now…

Ok, I just checked. Well, 343 feels that some of the weapons in Halo 5 are not balanced or rather overpowered and don’t play the role they were supposed to play. I only cross-read it, but it seems that every weapon (12 are affected by this) is being made harder to use. Only the Active Camo will be enhanced in some way. You can read all of it here.

The testing will end on October 2 and in early November we will have a bigger update with the new and improved? weapons. I am very sceptical but we will see.

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!!!!
