Girls Love Halo Interview with Nicole
It’s time for another Interview. I’m proud to present to you the one and only Mrs. Princess.Chief aka Nicole. She is a major Halo fan since she was 7 years old so she knows her way around. Without further ado, let’s head right into the fun.
1.) When did you start playing Halo?
I started playing Halo during the year the first one came out which was when I was 7 years old. I remember watching my dad play it first and whenever my dad would be at work, I would sneak on the Xbox and play Halo myself. It was the first time I experienced a first person shooter, playing through a hero’s point of view. I fell in love with Halo the moment the main menu started up. The Halo theme always brings me back.
2.) If you could choose to be one character of the Halo universe, who would you be?
I remember when I was obsessed of Halo Reach, I’ve always wanted to be Kat because I thought she was such a badass. I cried the most during her death in the game because I connected with her a lot. She’s incredibly intelligent and loyal to Noble team. Back in the day, my Xbox friends would nickname me Kat or Kitty Kat. Also, my multiplayer spartan looks similar to her and every time I would play SWAT, I used the M6G pistol since that’s her main weapon. Here’s an old screenshot of my Reach spartan from 5+ years ago.
3.) Do you have a favorite Halo quote?
This quote has been in my Xbox bio for months and it is: „Don’t make a girl a promise if you know you can’t keep it.“
Every time Cortana said that to Chief, it literally breaks my heart into a million pieces. It has always stuck with me for many reasons. When I met the voice actors of Master Chief and Cortana last year, I drew these for them.
4.) What do you love most about Halo?
2 words: Master Chief. Master Chief is literally what makes Halo.. Halo. And I have a pretty huge crush on him as a lot of people know. I experienced so much through his eyes and he is my top favorite videogame character of all time. His strength, bravery, and determination really inspires me. Every time I go to a convention and see a Master Chief cosplayer, I freak out and fangirl because I just really love the character. He’s been a huge part of my childhood. Master Chief has grown so much and what I love about the recent Halo games is that he’s starting to show more human emotion. I know that he’s more than just a machine.
Also, meeting Steve Downes and Jen Taylor has always been a dream of mine ever since I was a little girl. So when I finally got the chance to meet them at SacAnime, it was one of the happiest days of my life. I even got Master Chief to say „I love you“ to me. Ahhhh. <3
And lastly, the Halo community. They are all such sweethearts to me. We all love Halo and I have met such wonderful people at conventions I recently went to. I’m incredibly happy and proud to be a part of such a passionate community.
5.) What do you hate most about Halo?
I don’t like how Halo 5 multiplayer has very few game types to play on. I wish they came out with more playlists like in Halo Reach. But other than that, I hated how Bungie left the Halo series. It was heartbreaking and was an unreal moment for me as well as others when it happened. But my friends and I still made some great memories on the last Bungie Day (7/7/11).
6.) How would you rate your skills in Halo? (1-10)
I would have to say 7 if I don’t play a few practice matches but after a few practice matches, then I’m a 8 or 9. Haha. 😂 It all depends on how much I play before hand.
7.) What is your favorite Halo game?
My favorite is the one that is rarely anybody’s favorite which is Halo 4. The main reason is because of the connection between Master Chief and Cortana. The ending was just incredibly beautiful and I felt like they should’ve just ended the Halo series from there. Master Chief also had more dialogue and was starting to show human emotion which made me fall more in love with his character.
But I also love Halo Reach for the firefight and multiplayer. Many memories were made there with friends. That one is also my absolute favorite one.
8.) What do you prefer? Campaign or multiplayer?
If you see any of my stats on any Halo game, most of the hours spent are on campaign. Halo is one of the games in which I can play the campaign over and over again without getting tired of it. I love experiencing the legend of Master Chief, Noble Team, etc. as many times as I want. And turning on the skulls to make the campaign more interesting haha. But I also love multiplayer. I mostly play SWAT, infection, and firefight.
9.) Which games besides Halo do you play?
I play way too many games but I’ll just list a few of my favorites. BioShock, Assassin’s Creed, Kingdom Hearts, Pokémon, Fallout, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy, Castle Crashers, Minecraft, Destiny, Gears of War, Borderlands, Far Cry, and many more.
10.) If you had to endure one level of any Halo game in real life, which one would it be and why?
Probably the last level in Halo 3 where you ride in a Warthog and things are exploding everywhere. If I wasn’t the one driving and I was on the turret… I think that would be so freakin‘ fun and epic.
And here’s an updated picture of most of my Halo collection:
Thank you so much for interviewing me! 🙂
