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.

Girls Love Halo Interview – Boys Edition with Sal

After all the wonderful Interviews that I have done with the ladies, I thought it might be time to open this segment to the men as well. Let them put their 2 cents in.

First up is my good friend Sal aka Forerunner Omega. We met on Instagram in 2013 over our shared interest in Halo and in particular the taking screenshots part of Halo. We have also been in 2 clans together and have had many great Halo sessions. That was mostly back in the Halo 4 days, when I still had time to stay up until the morning. Sal is a very artsy person, a graphic designer with a big nerdy collection of figures from all sorts of games or shows. Sometimes he gives them a special paint job too. He has done a lot for the community by creating logos or wallpapers for free. The IG Girls Love Halo logo for example was made by him. To me he is the original Fotus guy. He rocks this armor since forever. And he still creates beautiful screenshots which you will see throughout the Interview. So, without further ado, let the man tell you his story. Enjoy!

1. When did you start playing Halo?

My first experience to play Halo was when my friend bought Halo on the launch day. I never thought I would see anything as amazing as this. It was my first experience into any type of shooter game/genre. I only got to the part when Chief meets the flood that day. I didn’t get any type of Xbox console sadly until 2007.  So I missed out on playing online gaming for Halo 1 through 3. Halo Reach was the first game that I did any online gaming but that sadly wasn’t until 2008. ^-^.

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

If Red VS Blue counts as well I would have to say Agent Washington because I always thought he was badass and his personality is like mine from what all my friends tell me.

3. Do you have a favorite Halo quote?

It probably has to be when Master Chief met the Didact for the first time in Halo 4. Just that exact line gave me goosebumps. Especially how the helmet just wrap his head.

“The forerunners… have returned… This Tomb … is now yours“– Didact (Forerunner Mission)

Girls Love Halo Interview with Maria

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!

Maria Interview Fotu 2

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.

Girls Love Halo Interview with Katie

Another Girls Love Halo Interview is up. My fellow Fotus Mafia clan mate and beautiful IG friend Katie aka The Halo Turtle answered my 10 questions. Enjoy!

1. When did you start playing Halo?

Well, my brother used to play it all the time, he actually hosted his very own Halo tournament for one of his birthdays. We never really got along until we found gaming as a common ground. I first started playing Halo with him, I was about 10 or 11, we would spend hours together, he would show me all the glitches and let me play through the campaign, I even use to help him lag switch while playing online. Once he grew out of it that was the end for me, that is, until I rekindled my friendship with my BFF Kim, she showed me Halo Reach (I’ll tell you more about that on question 7).

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

I wouldn’t want to be anyone, that’s way too much pressure. Having to fight and save the world from scary ass aliens! 😉 I’m just kidding; I would love to be Dr. Catherine Halsey, I mean we do already have the same first name, she is the whole reason the Master Chief is who he is. She got to know all of the spartans before they even became spartans, before their training and augmentations, she got to choose who made it and who didn’t. She was the head honcho of the entire Spartan Program and I think that’s freaking awesome.

3. Do you have a favorite Halo quote?

Cortana- “Just one question: what if you miss?“
Master Chief- “I won’t.“
I know this is more than one but they just can’t be said seperately. This is from Halo 2, up until this point we all thought Chief was a badass but this right here confirmed it. He likes to push and test his limits and, of course, show off for Cortana.

4. What do you love most about Halo?

The community definitely. I love seeing all of the screenshots and montages, all the custom Halo figures and toy shots. I love that all these people who don’t know each other can come together over one video game and be friends, be there for each other. I love how we all support and defend each other.

5. What do you hate most about Halo?

I didn’t really hate anything about the actual game until recently. I absolutely can’t stand that Halo 5 isn’t split screen or how the Swat game type plays. I LOVED Swat in Halo Reach but they butchered it in Halo 5 in my opinion. Also, I’m not entirely that happy that they didn’t put in a voting system. I would love to be able to choose the maps I play on. Other than that I hate that people quit out of games so often and that if I lag out of a game because of the shitty servers it’s put on me because I “quit out“ and then I get banned. I wish there were a way that they could tell the difference.

6. How would you rate your skills in Halo? (1-10)

Well, considering I very rarely go positive I would say a 4 and that’s probably still too high lol. I just love the game, to me it’s not about winning or losing, it’s about playing and having fun doing so.

7. What is your favorite Halo game?

Hands down Halo Reach and that’s all thanks to my bff Kim. We would spend hours, days, playing and drinking and just having fun. Neither one of us were working so I would go over to her house and we would spend all day doing the challenges. We would play Swat until our fingers bled and would rage at all the campers and shit talkers until our faces turned blue. In the end it was all fun and games, we loved it. We met so many amazing people who we still play with to this day. In my opinion Halo Reach was the best made Halo just because of the multiplayer and the community.

8. What do you prefer? Campaign or multiplayer?

Definitely multiplayer, even though I’m terrible at it, I love playing against other people and making friends. Don’t get me wrong the campaigns are amazing I just find it more fun to rage at “noobs“ and battle it out with the sniper and shotgun.

9. Which games besides Halo do you play?

In the past I didn’t play anything but Halo but now that I’m older, have my own place and my own money, I’ve broadened my horizons. I’ve been playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Grand Theft Auto, and Destiny on Xbox also, Pokemon, Zelda, and TMNT on 3DS. That’s just naming the ones I play most. I like to download all of the free games just to try them out but, so far, I really only like FPS games.

10. If you had to endure one level of any Halo game in real life, which one would it be and why?

There are so many great ones to choose from but The Flood (excuse my language) creep me the fuck out so definitely not any of those levels. Maybe Truth and Reconciliation from Halo: CE. I love that you start out that mission with a Sniper and have to sneak around, kill all the enemies, and board their mothership to save Captain Keyes (he is one of my favorite characters).
