It is quite a coincidence that T3 and Microsoft have tracked down the UK’s “hottest Halo fan” a mere week before the release of Halo Wars.

It’s also quite a coincidence that she’s got her own promotional Halo Wars vest top, plus the MAIN FOCUS of her Halo love seems to be Halo Wars which isn’t even out yet.

“Those have to be the hottest promo shots I’ve ever seen. A sexy brunette, cute little hot pants and a Halo Wars top – sexy as fuck. I pretty much creamed when I saw the pictures of her ironing and making tea. It’s where the woman belongs” – Mike.

Her “bedroom” also seems lacking in the usual accoutrements we’ve come to associate with the bedrooms of girls (from seeing them on television home makeover shows).

It helps if you look at the screen. The screen tells you what’s happening. It’s not enough to just hold the controller and have the console turned on. That’s not playing.

But still. It’s vaguely relevant and is of a girl. Here are some facts about Amanda which you can use to convince your mum & dad you have a girlfriend.

About Amanda:

Amanda Johnstone is 25 years old, lives in South London and runs her own event management company. She spends a lot of time away from home however when at home she likes nothing more than being snuggled up in bed with her Xbox controller, playing Halo to help take her away from her daily stresses.

Her good friend Sam introduced Amanda to the world of Halo 7 years ago when he launched his ‘Halo club’ nights at The Cross (Kings Cross, London) which all began as part of his passion for the game. She worked the door for three years and was also used as the ‘face’ to advertise the night. As she spent more time with Sam some of his infatuation with the game started rubbing off on her.

Amanda became more and more into Halo and was spending more of her evenings with the covenant as Master Chief, trying to save the world. This became an obsession, to a point where not only was she playing until the early hours of the morning on most nights over Xbox LIVE but started collecting Halo merchandise – from themed mugs and posters through to bags and figurines. She even sleeps with Master Chief every night under her Halo duvet cover and pillow case set.

Amanda’s obsession doesn’t stop here as she recently got herself a little pet Chihuahua and named him ‘Chiefy’.

In 2007 she was also lucky enough to win tickets to attend the launch of Halo 3 where she walked the red carpet with Master Chief, Pharrell Williams, Christian Slater amongst other celebs.

“I have so much fun playing Halo and absolutely love getting on Xbox LIVE and getting better scores than a lot of the boys I regularly play the game with. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the new game Halo Wars.”

When Amanda is not trying to save the world on Halo she is blasting out karaoke hits on Lips. Her favourite songs include Leona Lewis’s Bleeding Love and Rihanna’s Umbrella.
