My passion for the Halo franchise started back in 2001 with the release of Halo: CE, the gripping storyline and amazing graphics (back then) made me adore Halo and it's plethora of characters. My love for the series only increased then on with each successive game and novel released; nothing can beat the memories of lanning up with friends and playing Halo 2! I enjoy all aspects of Halo universe from chewing my fingernails in a competitive multiplayer matchmaking game to quietly sitting down and reading a well written novel at night. Halo is more than a series, it's a way of life!
I have completed each of the Halo games, and have yet to bump into a Halo game that's been released that wasn't enjoyable and well made - It's a fact. My knowledge of the Halo universe encompasses most of it's aspects, however, my speciality would have to be the Forerunner, including their, culture, history, and technology. Hail to the Forerunner ecumene! I have completed all the games, but have yet to complete Halo 3: ODST, and Halo Wars on legendary mode - I have completed Halo 3 on legendary mode, however due to not having Xbox live the achievements were lost upon my accounts creation.
I have also read almost all the novels, yet still have Halo: Evolutions volume one and two to complete (I need to find a time free from distractions); my most enjoyed novels are the Forerunner saga and the Kilo-Five saga - these two series were written by extremely talented sci-fi writers and I would heavily recommend reading them. I also play a considerable amount of multiplayer on Halo: Reach, Halo Wars, and Halo 4 - my most enjoyed playlists being Capture the Flag, Team Snipers, Double Team, and Arena. Users are free to add me on Xbox live however I would need you to send me your Halo Nation username otherwise I will refuse the invitation, sorry.
