  1. Moving on to the Franchise Team full time to work more directly on universe and brand creative, so largely story/universe/canon stuff across the franchise. I released my last regularly-panned/hosted Community Update, Spotlight and Social Stream within the past couple weeks, and the DH ATL preview and recap blogs were pretty much my last direct Community Team contributions before fully swapping over.
  2. Not sure if this had been posted here or not, but here's our recap that went live just after the event: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/hcs-finals-2018-recap It's been an honor and blast to write our esports creative content the past couple years, getting to know - and help share - some of the awesome stories in the scene that make every event so intriguing. I'll definitely miss serving as the series' primary penman going forward, and thanks to anyone here who ever took the time to read any of my esports-focused bits <3
  3. Having a ton of fun at the venue here watching this all go down. Fantasy's double and Roy's sticky were incredible. Also, shout out the folks who manage to celebrate one thing without shitting on another. Real MVPs right there. <3
  4. If you see me around the floor (having snuck out from backstage), say hi! Will likely be in black HCS hoodie with Alabama lanyard for creds.
  5. Stoked for DH ATL in what is setting up to be a proper send-off for top-level H5 play. Has been an incredible ride! Hope to see you guys there supporting it in person! <3
  6. Big congrats to TOX! They finally notch the win their label has deserved. Roll on ATL. Thanks for being part of it all, guys. <3
  7. That's awesome to hear and appreciate you taking the time to read them! <3
  8. FYI I'll be back on the 343 Social Stream as always later today making people cringe with bad humor and awkward antics - but I will be joined by Nick Harrison (h2ritzypizza) from the dev team to talk about his history with the franchise and love for Halo MP, plus we'll talk a bit about HCS London and set some of that up as well. If you're free, join us at 1:30pm PT on mixer.com/Halo. <3
  9. Lol all very valid points. I think for me, it was a watershed moment from a story/universe perspective, all of a sudden giving a completely new spin on and insight into the Covenant. I really enjoyed the cinematic presentation of it all, and it overall had a very Empire Strikes Back feel to it. And H2A in particular is simply the "ultimate realization" of the experience, from the beautiful visuals to the jaw-dropping cutscenes. It's just a kind of perfect snapshot in time of the Halo universe. That all being said, there's plenty of stuff worth critiquing from a campaign structure and gameplay standpoint for sure. I also do laugh a little bit when folks freaked out about playing as Locke when I remember the exact same thing happening with the Arbiter, we just didn't have Twitter to amplify the bitchitude. (granted, not exactly apples to apples, but still).
  10. H2A is easily my personal favorite Halo campaign experience. Wait, are we not talking about campaign?
