Authors Note: Oh yes people, I'm back. Not with a chapter of RWBY watches though. No, I am back with a story that I sincerely hope gets me back into the writing mood. Yes, it's here folks, my RWBY plays series! And to start it out, I decided on my favorite video game of all time: Halo.
The reason I decided to start it on this game? Because it is, in my opinion, the game with one of the best stories(Not counting 5; That was a disappointment. Really hope 6 does better), good combat I don't get tired of, addicting multiplayer, and a great universe outside of the games.
Oh, this takes place in the same time as my RWBY watches story. Only instead of there being DVD's of TV shows, there's a game console and video games in the box.
Now, let's get on with this story's prologue!
DISCLAIMER: I own neither RWBY or Halo. They each belong to their respective owners.
After much deliberation, and with much hesitation, RWBY decided to open up the box that had appeared out of nowhere and nearly nocked Ruby unconscious. Blake, taking Gambol Shroud off of her bed, sliced open the box very carefully as to not damage its contents.
Inside of the box, was a sleek, black, 13 inch box that seemed to shine a little from the artificial light of their ceiling fan. A circular, white symbol of some sort with an X crossed through it is on the far right of the front of the box. A vent was on the top of the black box, taking up half of the space of it. On top of the box, were many connecting wires, along with a large number of green cases, and a black remote. Each case had a note on it, and on the black box there was also a note.
Plucking the note off the black box, Ruby began reading it aloud.
"To whomever receives this box, I have but a couple of things to say. One; Every game in this box is one of my absolute favorites of all time, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Two; If you don't known what electricity is, or even have a language beyond grunting and growling, please do not destroy the contents of this until you learn ti read. Or you could worship them as gods for appearing out of nowhere. Either is fine. And 3; The world I reside in is coming to an end.
The reasons for this vary, but the biggest is because as I'm writing this note and making my peace with my inevitable short and painful doom, a nuclear war is about to start. A nuclear war that will completely wipe out my beautiful and wonderful world, known as Earth. I sincerely hope that this machine I'm using to send this works, and that this box is sent somewhere that will fully appreciate its contents. And that you read and speak English. Or have a super computer that can translate a language from another world.
Anyway, if you don't believe me, I don't blame. After all, what sane person would? Frankly, I probably wouldn't believe a note like this if it happened to me.
Signed, one man from a world on the brink of destruction.
P.S, this black box is called an Xbox one, and some of the games are from the previous generation of the Xbox. They're playable through backwards comparability.
All of RWBY couldn't hide the shocked look on their faces. Tears were brimming at the edge of their eyes, as imagined images of this 'Earth' flashed through their heads.
"So... what're we gonna do?" Ruby asked the others after a few more moments of silence.
"Well, we're gonna do what the note says and enjoy these games this guy sent us. Blake, hook the box up to the TV!" Yang ordered.
"Got it." Blake plucked the black box from inside the large brown one, along with all its wires, the controller, and moved to hook it up to the TV they'd recently gotten.
"Ruby, choose a game from the box!"
"On it!" Ruby began rummaging through box, lifting up each case and looking at each one thoroughly.
"Weiss, go get some snacks!"
"Right." Weiss rushed into the kitchen, the sound of a door opening accompanying the sound of bare feet hitting the tile, and bags big taken out of the fridge. A few minutes later, they were all gathered on the couch.
"Alright, what do we got?" Yang asked as eh was on the end of the couch.
"The Xbox is hooked up correctly, and is ready to be turned on whenever we're ready to start." Blake responded.
"I've got chips, soda, and chocolate all ready for tonight." Weiss herself didn't really play video games that much, never really had much desire or chance really, and so at most only knew about the mobile games for her Scroll. It'd be interesting to see what Earth had for video games.
"Well, the first game we're gonna play is called 'HALO: THE MASTER CHIEF COLLECTION'... The way they spelled the A and O in Halo is weird." Ruby showed the girls the case of the game she picked.
The case itself was nearly 7 inches tall and green, the white words 'XBOX ONE' on the top, the circular white symbol with an X through it from before next to the consoles name. The image on the cover of the box was dark, and in the forefront of the image was a square bluish, crystalline helmet with a golden visor being the first thing the girls noticed. The bottom right of the visor was shining gold, or at least drawn that way anyway. In the background, were 4 images of the same armored man.
On the back of the case were various images. One was of a an African American man with a mustache wearing a green cap with the words '45 campaign missions' next to him. Another image was of an arena of some sort, a skylight shining down upon it, the words 'Access to Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta*' above it. The next image was of various soldiers, each in tan armor standing among a misty wasteland with the words 'Halo: Nightfall, an all new live action digital series from Executive Producer Ridley Scott. Another image was of two soldiers wearing the same armor, the only difference being one was red and the other blue, with the words 'Over 100 Multiplayer Maps' behind the red one. Finally, the image was of a soldier in a green version of the armor they'd been seeing with two submachine guns pointed at something not in the picture, the words 'Included 4 full games: A re-mastered Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4' above him'.
In the middle of all these pictures were the words 'THE SEEDS OF OUR FUTURE ARE SOWN IN HIS PAST' in capital words and colored light blue.
The girls all stared in silence at the case for a few moments, before Ruby broke the silence.
"This game looks awesome. Let's get this all started!" Ruby quickly opened up the case, took the disc out, turned the Xbox on, and put the disc in. Yang meanwhile powered on the controller, the Xbox symbol lighting up white.
Ruby rushed back over to the couch and took a seat, just as the TV turned on. The girls were unaware that they were about to play perhaps the greatest game of all time, and would maybe learn some things along the way.
