This most historic of gaming logs represents the first of a long series of posts which will chronicle my very own personal Halo Fest 2020. That’s just a stupid name I came up with for, in anticipation of the launch of Halo Infinite, replaying through every single one of the Halo games.
I’ve been into Halo since around the launch of the first game but I’ve only played through most of the single player campaigns a single time which should make going back through them pretty entertaining. I haven’t even played some of them yet, namely Halo 5 and the Halo Wars games, so I’m really looking forward to those. On top of that, going back through old gaming logs, I really haven’t talked much about any of the Halo games all that much, and my coverage of the few I did write about here was a little anemic. This will give me the opportunity to go into a little more detail about all of them.
“Back into the fight!”
Of course, this whole thing might very well take me longer than the next 4 months, which with Halo Infinite being delayed some indeterminate amount of time, works out okay I suppose, though perhaps I shouldn’t have put the year in the title. So, what first? I thought about doing these playthroughs chronologically in the order the story unfolds, but the technological leaps between the games seemed like it might be a little too radical. Instead, I’ve opted to play them in original release order, which means we’re starting from the beginning with the legendary Halo: Combat Evolved.
My next gaming blog entry should be following shortly!
