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 – 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)
