Snuggles with the Chief

Haha, I thought I’d share this wonderful cosplay with you.

I am so sorry that I haven’t really updated this blog. First of all, there is next to nothing interesting happening in the Haloverse, but second of all, I am in a very stressful period of my life. I hope this will change soon. For now, rest your eyes on this lovely Cortana and let’s hope she comes back to us in Halo 6.

Halo TV Series  – Starts filming this October

It looks like we are finally getting some news and info about the promised Halo TV series. As read on pursuenews.com Showtime is planning to start filming this October. There was also a Location reveal and it is going to be Budapest in Hungary.

I personally didn’t think this was going to happen. We have waited so long for this and nothing was promoted or leaked. But I sure hope this info is actually true and that we will see this series someday.

343 is doing things right – Women in Gaming

You can say about 343 what you want. They are not doing everything right. BUT! 343 posted this picture on the International Women’s Day (March 8th) via Twitter.

That’s what I like to see. That’s what I like young girls to see. Of course, there are still major issues about women’s rights and Equality in general but I see a change and I see progress. And statements like this post will help with that.

In case you are interested, I wrote an article about the women in Halo a while back. You can read it here.

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.

Halo Fandom and Beyond – Sugar Gamers Interview

Hey, I am famous. There is an Interview with me on SugarGamers. In case you haven’t heard of this lovely bunch, I will tell you about them. Founded in 2009, it started with Keisha Howard, who was looking for like-minded women who shared her passion for geek culture and gaming. Now there is a whole team and a growing community.

The approach that Sugar Gamers takes to this industry sets us worlds apart from our counterparts. More importantly, we value real life interactions just as much as our online community. We work diligently to have events that make the fun of “geek” culture come alive while being surrounded by remarkable and unique individuals.

I was approached by Rebecca Rothschild aka Bonks who writes regularly for the SugarGamers website. I know her from the awesome Drunken Halo podcast where she has appeared many a time. She is a writer and narrative designer living in Chicago and overall a very impressive woman that I find inspiring. So thank you very much dear Bonks. It was a pleasure.

You can read the whole Interview here.
