Sometimes I wonder myself how many plays off the word “Grim” I’m going to be able to make before someone sneaks up behind me one day and takes out their literary frustration out on me. That being said, welcome to this new little corner of the web. Regular visitors of HBO (and other forums, for that matter) will of course have become used to seeing my prose smattered about the usual digs. I’ve received more than a few requests inquiring if I might start giving a bit of a “Community Report”, based on what I see happening around the Halo Community, specifically HBO. It’s actually an idea that I had been kicking around for quite some time now, and I’m humbly happy to oblige.

I will say though, that I won’t be sticking just to HBO. In fact, it won’t always be just to Halo either. I think it’s important to come up to the oft-rumored surface to take a look at the grander picture. Sometimes it will also remind you just how good you’ve got it being surrounded by the community you know and love.

So that’s what I’ll be doing. As often as possible, I’ll be bringing you my thoughts and opinions, good, bad, or unfathomable, on the Halo Community and the gaming industry as a whole.  I would absolutely love to hear your thoughts and opinions as well (well, most of them, but I’m too lazy to actively discriminate), so feel free to leave comments, questions, or good recipes for making excellent thai food at home on a limited budget.

And thank you to each and every community member that has made me feel like a valued (or at least tolerated) part of your recreational lives. You all really do mean the world to me. So here we go…
