IMG_1152_editFunny how these things go. We want to feature a gamer of the week every week, but some people appear to be just too shy to reply. We won’t bite. OK. That’s a lie. We will. But you still don’t need to be afraid. We have cookies on our side.

Today’s not-so-scared gamer is strangely another gun-toting zombie killer. We really don’t appear to be making friends these days.

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

Hi my name is Annette aka KiLL3R-KZN. I live in the beautiful warm sunny Durban.

What’s you platform of choice?  Why?

I love my PS3 and can’t wait to have the PS4, to see all the features it has to offer.  The main reason for getting the PS2 initially was because it had Rachet and Clank and Xbox didn’t.

Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?

Not really.  But it was the old games like Pacman, Caterpillar and Asteroids. From then, as the years passed, so did my console purchases.

How long have you been gaming?

Um that answer kind of gives my age away (lol) so let’s just say from a very young teen.

When do you think you’ll stop gaming?

I’ll never stop whether I’m gaming on a console, phone, PC or iPad.

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

I love to laugh and joke in a lobby – makes gaming so much more fun.

Single player or multiplayer?

I like single player more for Zombies but otherwise I prefer games that have online multiplayer.

Is playing online important to you?

It is important as I feel it’s a part of who I am.  It’s also how I relieve my stress and how I relax.

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

Yes I’m currently in S4LT.  I joined because Francois Jacobs asked me to.  But because of my dedication and clan knowledge, I can help him a lot.

Favourite game currently?

This is not the answer people with want to hear, but I’m still an avid Modern Warfare 3 lover. I didn’t like Black Ops 2 but I think I’ll enjoy Ghosts.

Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming?  What?

I do.  I’m the kind of person that always keeps my mind and hands busy.  I love listening to music – that is my heart and soul of life.  As for the rest of my hobbies, well I’m not going to say what they are, as they kind of old lame not today hobbies.

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

A game: Modern Warfare 3
A CD: Depeche Mode 101
A movie or TV series: Smallville
An organic life form: A male model (for warmth 😉 )
Something edible or drinkable: Seafood

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

Can’t remember the name of it, but some kind of robot game, gave it away as a birthday present.

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

It has to be fps game, a lot like Modern Warfare 3 mixed with Rachet and Clank.

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 bit of a hard choice.  Maybe the ACR with RPG as a secondary. [Crikey. That’s not really a fair fight against teeth now is it? – 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?

I would like to start off by killing the zombies and after that I can become one, that way I get to be both (lol).

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

Thank you for opportunity in letting me be selected for gamer of the week.  I’m off to play 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 and we’ll think about – after you’ve sent us a sample of your braaaaaaiiiiinnnnsss.
