Go ahead. Introduce yourself. Don’t be shy.
Um……Hi, my name is clint3224 and I am an alc…..um….addicted gamer. [You too, eh? – Undead Ed]
What’s you platform of choice? Why?
PS4/3 – there has to be a reason – isn’t it obvious. I just felt it was the better one of the consoles and never really enjoyed PC gaming because you have to constantly update your rig to enjoy the new games.
Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?
Man, going to give away my age. I used to own a ZX Spectrum back in the day.
How long have you been gaming?
I think since I was about 10 – so that would be…..wait for it….31 year years – damn, long before most of the gamers that are reading this were born.
When do you think you’ll stop gaming?
I hope that day never gets old, hoping to still be playing PS12 with my grand kids.
Are you a serious gamer? Or do you enjoy a laugh?
Oh jeez, can you ever be a serious gamer – I try to be serious but I just have to laugh at the way I play most games. I play games to distress – so I laugh always helps. Taking it too serious sounds like work.
Singleplayer or multiplayer?
Both but I must admit I find multiplayer better because it’s so much better jolling with mates.
Is playing online important to you?
Yes, because I have met some really good people though online gaming.
Are you a member of a clan? Who are they and why?
Yes, I am a member of a clan called RiOT. We are a predominantly BF3/4 clan but we tend to play a range of games. I think being in a clan defines your character in online gaming – shows that you are committed to a greater cause in the gaming world – jeez – I think I should become a politician.
Favourite game currently?
It’s a tough call between BF4 (although the lag and bug issues frustrate me to no end) and AC4 (It’s so cool blowing ships up and causing mayhem).
Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming? What?
What – there is time to do things outside of gaming? Lol. Well, I have a motocross bike and that is a big passion of mine.
You’re stranded on a desert island and a genie grants you five items. Name them:
A game: Borderlands 2
A CD: Back in Black by ACDC
A movie or TV series: Californication
An organic life form: Scarlett Johansson
Something edible or drinkable: Pepperoni pizza
What’s the most embarrassing or worst game you’ve ever bought or received as a gift?
Oh man, I can’t think of a specific one but I have to admit that if a game doesn’t grip me by the short and curlys in the 1st ten minutes, I stop playing it.
If you were a game designer, describe your ultimate game design.
I love the concept of co-op on the main campaign like Borderlands. I would design all my games like that. Nothing better than helping your mates out on their campaign.
The zombie apocalypse has happened. You’re facing down a ravenous zombie horde (which may or may not include members of ZG in bikinis). What weapon do you grab?
A chainsaw – hell yes. [Er. Hell no. Have you heard how noisy those things are? Gives us zombies real earache. – Undead Ed]
In the aforementioned zombie apocalypse you humans are all toast. Become a turncoat and assist the superior zombies or stay with the soon to be wiped out human resistance?
Humans all the way – I have watched enough Zombie flicks to believe I can survive. Although I am overweight so I will probably be chowed by a zombie pretty quick. Depends which zombies. If they slow I will survive but those zombies from World War Z – I am screwed with or without a chainsaw.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our silly questions. What game are you off to play now that you’re done?
AC4 DLC – Freedom Cry.
