Gamer of the Week: Concept IRISH

Irish_01We lost a week or two of gamers, but we’re not sure if they fell victim to zombie cravings or whether they just weren’t interested in featuring. Either way, we’re back on track with this fine Irish lad.

Go ahead.  Introduce yourself.  Don’t be shy.

They call me Irish, I started off on Halo and moved over to CoD on Xbox 360, I am a member of Undying Legion and the founder of Concept Gaming. Previous Gamertags: DrunkenIrish14, R3B3L x IR1SH, ll IRISH ZA ll. Current Gamertag: Concept IRISH.

What’s you platform of choice?  Why?

Xbox 360, I followed my school friends with getting it and I really enjoy the controller for FPS like CoD, and the community is so welcoming and always looking to grow.

Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?

Well, I started off on PS2 but before that it was free online games but the first time I gamed on a console was with a couple of my friends and the first game I played was WWE 2008.

How long have you been gaming?

About 5 years on a console that I owned.

When do you think you’ll stop gaming?

Hopefully until I cannot game anymore.

Are you a serious gamer?  Or do you enjoy a laugh?

I’d say both. I enjoy messing around on GTA 5 with my friends but I also enjoy getting serious in competitive Call Of Duty.

Singleplayer or multiplayer? 

Multiplayer.

Is playing online important to you?

Very. I get extremely bored when I’m not playing with my friends and feel really lonely.

Are you a member of a clan?  Who are they and why?

Yes, Undying Legion ( UndL), I started off in a Halo clan and that clan became the ‘Halo Division’ of RA5 and I bought CoD and just loved gaming with these guys and after the merge with 21CT, I founded a team I loved playing competitive CoD with, Concept Gaming.

Favourite game currently?

Call Of Duty.

Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming?  What?

I love my Hockey. I play for Wynberg Boys High u15a side.

You’re stranded on a desert island and a genie grants you five items.  Name them:

A game: Call of Duty
A CD: Chris Tomlin: Our God
A movie or TV series: Sherlock
An organic life form: Scottish Terrier dog
Something edible or drinkable: Monster Energy

What’s the most embarrassing or worst game you’ve ever bought or received as a gift?

Sims 2 Pets (PS2).

If you were a game designer, describe your ultimate game design.

A 3rd person adventure game based in the medieval times with magic and goblins and dragons – kinda like Skyrim.

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?

Water Gun, stun them by shooting the face then spray the ground in front of them and they fall and hit their heads, dinners ready. [You have one mean streak in you…  – 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?

Human resistance, eventually I would be eaten either way.

Thanks for taking the time to answer our silly questions.  What game are you off to play now that you’re done?

Call Of Duty: Ghosts.

We welcome all gamers, regardless of age, sex, creed, platform or whether you’re human or zombie.  There’s no discrimination around here, so feel free to contact us if you are keen to feature in this column in the future at info@zombiegamer.co.za and we’ll think about – after you’ve sent us a sample of your braaaaaaiiiiinnnnsss.
