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.

No Gamescom for me – I missed it all

If there is a god out there, he/she/it was not planning on making me happy a couple of weeks ago. We had it all set up. Xbox FanFest with 2 events on 2 nights. For both nights we had a babysitter. For both nights! Then we had planned to visit Gamescom on Tuesday as well. My mother would have taken care of our daughter during that time. We were set up. For real.

And then? I got sick. And felt like shit. And all our plans crumbled.

Life, right?

 

Xbox FanFest at Gamescom 2017

Gamescom 2017 is nigh and I have been so lucky as to receive an invitation to the Xbox FanFest. Last year and the year before I attended the Fest as well and it was a pleasure. Like in 2015, it will be at the Gürzenich, a great venue here in Cologne. I remember when I first arrived there and walked in, I was pretty amazed. My baby daughter was only 5 months old and I was quite nervous being away for a couple of hours. Last year the Fest was held on the Gamescom venue itself. It was a little smaller but also very cool.

So this time we will be back at the Gürzenich and I am looking forward to a night out with fellow like minded people. The Fest will start on Tuesday 22th with the „Middle Earth: Shadow of War – Legendary War Party“ hosted by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. I have no clue how this will turn out and what to expect. It’s going to be a different location as well. On Wednesday 23th we will attend the FanFest FanCave at the Gürzenich. There we will have the chance to play upcoming games on the brand new Xbox One X. Woohoo! I will be posting stories on the Girls Love Halo Instagram account on both days so keep an eye out for that.

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!!!!
