Archival footage from the mid-21st century reveals how the release of HALO 3, and its subsequent sequels, both created and destroyed the future of gaming, coming close to obliterating human civilization in the process.


  • This is LoadingReadyRun's most viewed video, by a considerable margin.
  • Ash provided the cover art for HALO 5. The original art for this was auctioned off during Desert Bus for Hope 2.
  • The voice Ash uses for the narration was developed when Matt and James played StarCraft frequently, and the Terran computer voice constantly telling them to "mine more minerals" got on her nerves. She mimicked the computer mockingly at first, but then learned to imitate it perfectly, freaking Matt out.
  • April 14, 1360 was in fact a Tuesday, and not a Monday as claimed.
