5 years ago, on this day, I submitted the Haloid Part I Prologue. November 30th 2008.
It's been five years and 5 new Halo games have come out (6 if you include the anniversary edition of the first game) and one Metroid game. Back when I first started, there were only 3 Halo games and way more Metroid games. The Halo series has exploded in comparison.
It speaks volumes of which series is more popular, apparently...
And of course there's all the extended Halo media. Books, comic books, movies, encyclopedias, visual guides. All of these have helped a lot while writing my story.
Honestly, by now I was hoping for more Metroid so I could include more stuff from that series. It bugs me a little because I have plans and I could really use more data.
Speaking of the number 5, I plan on ending this story after Part V. Luckily for you guys and given my current pace, it'll most likely be awhile before we reach the end of the road. Not to mention I have my other story to work on.
A big thanks to everyone who's stuck with me during these past five years and enjoyed my work.
