It’s still weeks out from Valentine’s Day, but Bungie already decided to show some serious love to a young man who received a very serious liver transplant. Reddit user fiscal_ reached out on the community boards asking about some contact info for the minds behind the original Halo bits. The conscientious dad though his boy could use some cheering up with someone from one of his favorite games, and Bungie [...]
