Anything else we should know? I have been playing Halo since my cousins introduced me to Halo CE and Halo 2. From that point I have felt in love with the Halo universe and it became my favorite franchise. The release of Halo 3 was the reason why I bought an Xbox 360 and I can proudly say to have and played many times through all Halo titles, except Halo Wars.
Primarily I play and buy Halo for its fantastic campaign, fiction and story because that is the main reason what makes Halo for me superior to other FPS. Besides I have not been able to play online MP on my own Xbox because of a distance problem between my Xbox and my internet connection until the release of Halo 4. Nevertheless, I have played endless hours of Halo 3's and Reach’s online MP on my cousins’ or friend’s consoles and finally I can play online on my own as well.
I’m currently studying architecture. It's probably kind of needless to say that I really like to forge in Halo :P. Aside playing videogames in my free time, I do a lot of sports like playing soccer or basketball with friends or simply pumping some iron to clear my head. I like playing some billiards, listen to a lot of music (Hip Hop, DnB and other genres) or just riding down the roads on my motorbike as well, and in the winter time I snowboard.
