Ultimate Halo room
Posted by Yoozel at 6/22/2006 8:12 AM PDT
Meet Namloco, a fan who just could not escape the clutches of the Halo universe. A Father of two, his addiction started one Christmas where he received Halo as a gift unaware that it would eventually suck his eye balls out of his skull. Believing that he would never pay for an online gaming service he quickly dropped that delusion when Halo 2 hit the shelves. Juggling a full time job, kids and being a husband has been quite the task for Namloco but somewhere between the tasks he has managed to find his escape in Halo and has built him self one heck of a place to relax.

Where'd he get that?
Blasting away in peace and relaxation

A basement as bald as Frankie's cranium was the beginning when Namloco examined his house for a space worthy of a gaming kingdom. A true visionary, the plan was set when he began to do the preliminary work by himself in the basement to ensure enough green to finish his ambitious project. After putting up the drywall himself, Namloco began his quest to find the most inspiring piece of Halo related art and finally settled on Eddie Smith's original work for the Edge cover. (Found here.) ”Well that portrait stood out to me in a way that gave me the sense of being in the fight, being part of that world and helping me to put the game face on. You know that loading screen online where all the troops are sitting in the pelican waiting for battle? I’m one of those, or so I wish” he said.

The goods

Over five weeks the artists labored to bring the six by twelve foot display to life and even added in extra details to the piece, such as his own custom Halo 2 symbol to Master Chief's arm and glow in the dark pant. Eventually he stated to add many trinketed pieces off of Ebay such has exclusive posters, display boxes and even a skull to mimic the famous odd ball. Namloco even wet as far as to building a 20 inch LCD TV. into his fireplace with surround sound to ensure top quality pwnage throughout inexcusable hours of gaming. And how can you forget the mini fridge conveniently located close to the battle grounds for refueling purposes!

Personal Emblem

“[I'm] very satisfied, as I said before I feel like I’m part of the game. But the kicker of it all is that I can pwn in peace and share it with like-minded fans through out the world,” Namloco told us when asked about his piece. Although the room may seem complete it is far from it, much like Halo itself. luckily Namloco planned on adding more detail to his Halo-tastic room, “No way am I done. I left a wall to the right of the Chief to expand. Maybe a life size gun rack in the pelican so visitors may have their weapon of choice on hand.”And what about when Halo 3 was announced at E3 this year? “Guess I’ll have to talk Mrs. Nam into letting me do our bedroom!”
