Student suits up for release of "Halo 4"
The North Idaho College graphic design student spent the past five months building a fiberglass Master Chief suit in anticipation of the Tuesday release of the Halo 4 video game for Xbox 360.
Groves, who is 6-feet-10-inches and 7-feet-3-inches with the suit on, greeted gamers and added to the anticipation of the game's release recently at the GameStop and Wal-Mart on Mullan Avenue in Post Falls.
"I made it custom to fit my body," the Post Falls resident said. "I just wanted to be a part of the excitement of the release."
Halo 4 is the first installment in a new trilogy of Halo series games called the "Reclaimer Trilogy." It begins four years after the ending of Halo 3 and marks the return of the Master Chief as the main protagonist.
Groves, 23, has been playing Halo games for 11 years since they started. But he calls himself just a casual player.
"I'm not nerdy about it to where I collect action figures and read books about it," Groves said. "I like to play with friends occasionally."
Critical thinking challenge: Groves has been playing Halo games for 11 years, but he considers himself a "casual" player. How could he play for so long and yet still be a casual player?
Define these words: casual, protagonist, trilogy
