Since I’m fortunate enough to live in the area, I was able to attend the launch event at the University District in Seattle. Needless to say, it was incredible. I personally met Steve Downes, shook his hand, and even got a couple selfies with him. A couple guys behind us had the great idea to ask him to say one of his lines from Halo, and when he did, everyone literally wet themselves.
I got to see a real Warthog, meet some members from the 405th, and got to see Bonnie Ross. She was making a speech at the Microsoft Store, and I was literally a couple feet away from her. That was pretty cool, considering her position at 343. I even said ‘thanks’ to her after she gave her speech, but she must not have heard me lol.
All in all, it was a pretty fantastic launch event, and got me super hyped to go home and play.
10/10 would do it again.
