Here’s a neat little fun fact?more people have been killed in Halo than there are people on Earth. Wacky! Destructoid has the numbers:
An astute Bungie forum member was the first to think about the numbers involved. According to the U.S. Census Bureau?s Population Clock, the Earth now has 6,707,128,707 people in it. Bungie?s kill counter for Halo 3 lists 6,852,762, 021, and that?s just for enemies. Add in another 1,197,119,900 friendly kills and you have a wholly awesome number.
That’s right?every sixth kill in Halo is someone killing their own teammember. Speaking of, here’s just one of those deaths. It’s an old video, but still a good one.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
