Gamer of the Week: dark0ne2

Blake WilliamsIt was a human public holiday last Monday, so we felt as entitled as any to give you all a break from the gamer of the week – seeing as it does feature humans.

So we’re back again, and this week we have the ominously named dark0ne2…

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

My name is Blake Williams, but most people know me as dark0ne2.

What’s you platform of choice?  Why?

Xbox 360. Why? Halo. Halo is my game of choice and requires a huge amount of skill to play at Esports levels. (I won’t lie, I also like the feel of Xbox controllers they just fit for me).

Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?

Yes back in England I must have been 6 or 7 and I played Total Annihilation in my opinion one of the best games for its time.

How long have you been gaming?

 14 years.

When do you think you’ll stop gaming?

When my body doesn’t work anymore.

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

Serious, but sometimes you can’t help but laugh.

Singleplayer or multiplayer?

Both.

Is playing online important to you?

Yes very, because it offers something no offline game can do. The hardest difficulty.

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

Yes T3CH9 and Sick and Sinful. T3CH9 was the AGSA champs 5 years running and the undefeated SnD champs. Sick and Sinful is my Halo team and my team and I are ranked as the best team in South Africa for Halo. Why? Because they can play the “best” in South Africa and destroy.

Favourite game currently?

Fallout 3 Game of the Year- can’t go wrong with the classics.

Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming?  What?

Paintball, DJing, people.

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

A game: Oblivion
A CD: Trentmoller – The Last Resort
A movie or TV series: Stargate it’s 17 seasons long
An organic life form: My Pug
Something edible or drinkable: Ice Tea Peach

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

Avatar.

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

I’m not giving you my ideas. ;P

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?

Katana.

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?

Stay and fight. “This is where we fight! This is where they die!” one of my favourite quotes.

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

Dead space 3 – loving the co-op.

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.
