Gamers. What a weird bunch we are eh? Always larking about, pretending to be something we’re not. I mean, who really thinks our gamer this week is really a monster? Or a tookie (whatever the heck that is)? It’s not nearly as believable as this site being run by zombies. Gamers – you’re a wonderful bunch of loons.
Go ahead. Introduce yourself. Don’t be shy.
My nick varies per platform, I am the ToOkieMoNstZA in the Xbox world,
bryantookie on the PS3, and HunterToOkie on the PC, but all my friends call me ToOkie ;D
What’s you platform of choice? Why?
At the current moment I would say the Xbox, hooked on Gears can’t get enough
Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?
Yes, my dad came home one day with a Pentium 286, played pacman and supaplex which got me started on my habit ;P
How long have you been gaming?
Since the age of 6 in 1991 I became addicted, it started off with me just hitting the keyboard over and over, but I figured it out eventually
When do you think you’ll stop gaming?
Right before I die, gameover man!
Are you a serious gamer? Or do you enjoy a laugh?
I enjoy a good laugh, I do from time to time like to be competitive with other players, but it’s all about having some fun!
Singleplayer or multiplayer?
That’s a hard one I couldn’t say one or the other. Depending on one’s mood, and the game or course.
Is playing online important to you?
Well kinda, I do crave taking some heads online quite often, is a good stress reliever after a rough days work, and might go a little mad if I can’t play with my Apples
Favourite game currently?
Gears 3 MP, not the campaign, which was super depressing.
Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming? What?
Like a good braai, hanging with a couple friends for a game of pool(with physical sticks and a table ;P), development work to improve my skillz ;P
You’re stranded on a desert island and a genie grants you five items. Name them:
A game: Plants vs Zombies
A CD: Iron Maiden – Brave New World
A movie or TV series: LOST
An organic life form: A Plants vc Zombies co-op partner (Female ;P)
Something edible or drinkable: Captain Morgan Jamaican Rum mixed with Mangos.
What’s the most embarrassing or worst game you’ve ever bought or received as a gift?
Well, I got a lot of grief a little while back when I craved Bullet Witch, took awhile to get my hands on it but played it for a bit, everyone told me it wasn’t great… guess I had to see for myself, but worst game ever I would have to say Alone in the Dark New Nightmare… the only game I have bought on release, played for 10 minutes and never touched again… so buggy bleh.
If you were a game designer, describe your ultimate game design.
Shew, Haha I have worlds in my head that could probably take forever to explain, but along the lines of Skyrims open roaming mixed with Mass Effect battle system and theme, With Diablos Item System and Freelancers exploration mixed with wing commanders/Dark Star ones space cockpit fights And of course the humour of Roger Wilco from the space quest series
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?
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?
Will stay with my fellow huumans till we run out of food… then maybe think about nomming on some brains
Thanks for taking the time to answer our silly questions. What game are you off to play now that you’re done?
Gears 3 of course games have been picking up again lately, been pretty easy finding games against other players, but could always do with some more challengers, so please come join us!
