Spotlight: December 13, 2019

By -

Happy Friday and welcome to the final Halo Community Spotlight for 2019. I can't believe it's been a whole year of me writing these already. It simultaneously feels like I've been writing blogs forever but also like I just started writing them. Time truly does fly when you're having fun. 

Let's have some fun for one last time in 2019, shall we? ­čĺÜ

CRÈME DE LA CRÈME

With the holidays just under 2 weeks away, I figure it's only fitting to showcase one of my favorite Christmas pieces, courtesy of @Mooreshots1. I like the idea that Chief has a little tree of his own somewhere. :) 

Snack Break

With a new Star Wars movie on the very near horizon, it feels very fitting to share @RiftleyOfficial's Halo and Star Wars mashup. Two of my favorites in one? Yes please! They do a lot of mashups of popular themes so be sure to check out Riftley's YouTube channel for even more.

Sweet Rolls

If moving pictures are more your thing, you've come to the right place so step up, grab your popcorn, and settle in.

I feel like *most* people playing Halo use a controller (or keyboard and mouse now! Yay!) but that's too easy for @SuperLouis_64. He plays Halo: Reach using bananas. Imagine being the person dying to the guy using a banana controller in matchmaking. ­čŹî

Here's @Chazzoboii's Halo 2 montage, edited by @BroeyBroe!

If you're going to start learning how to play piano, there's no better choice than the Halo theme. I love @ThePatmanGaming's father/daughter duet. 

How about an MCC PC flight montage? @MichaelAncich made one of those!

Check out Foxie117's video while he plays Halo: Reach campaign in third person. I don't know if I like this or not yet.

Petits Fours

Yep, there's still more to go around! 

Doodle's Snickers

I love pretty much everything Dania does but this is one of my favorites.

Cortana and Pancakes, @wani641

With that, it's time to put the finishing touches on my last Community Spotlight for 2019. It has been an absolute pleasure and one of the best parts of my job. I am already looking forward to 2020 and seeing what great things you all send my way. In the meantime, if your content is somewhere in this blog, please fill out this form so we can get you your Fire Unicorn presents. 

See you all next year!

Ciao! xx
