Gamer of the Week: NiNJacques

NiN Signature - NinJacques

Somehow, we’ve seen ninjas feature for a second week running.  For those that thought it was the zombies that would be taking over, you might need to start worrying about these ninjas and their continued infiltration of all walks of life.  Let us (the zombie horde) help you humans eradicate them from the world, and then we can all get back to our regular business.  Us eating you.

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

Hi my name is NiNJacques and I gave long and painfull birth to NiN, a local gaming clan.

What’s you platform of choice?  Why?

PS3.  Because it is shiny.

Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?

At the corner cafe arcade with my brother.  20cent arcade machines!

How long have you been gaming?


When do you think you’ll stop gaming?


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

I am a very serious games buyer, but I prefer to keep them sealed and cry myself to sleep because I don’t get around to playing them. 🙁

Singleplayer or multiplayer? 

The more the merrier.

Is playing online important to you?

Definitely.  No amount of AI can replicate the online scene and its colourful characters.

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

Nine Inch Ninjas.  They are ninjas and they are keeping me against my will.  Please help me…..

Favourite game currently?

With a newborn baby in the house my favourite game has become anything that I can play in short 20 minute bursts without the need to save or any kind of engaging storyline.

Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming?  What?

I also enjoy spelling profanities in alphabet soup.

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

A game: GTA IV
A CD: Monster Hits 9
A movie or TV series: The Simpsons entire series
An organic life form: Wazarmoto aka Face Beast aka my friend Yusuf
Something edible or drinkable: A LOT of brandy [You know Bokka1 by any chance? – Undead Ed]

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

I bought Face Breaker ON LAUNCH DAY. Yes, yes, I paid real money for it.

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

A combination of a City building game combined with a top down strategy war title. (Build it up just to break down)

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 Nokia 3310

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?


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

I am at work and you are keeping me from it.
