Gamer of the Week: Zombie of Doom

Yes. We know it's very scary to look at, but this is what your parents warned you about...

Yes. We know it’s very scary to look at, but this is what your parents warned you about…

We decided it might be time to introduce you all to some of the members of Zombiegamer.  So we decided to start with the latest addition to the crew. Frankly, we feel he has ruined it for the rest of us.  So we think we might just go back to you good folks out there rather than us freaks in here…

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

Hi, my name is Richard, or Dante, or awesome guy. Danteofdoom pretty much everywhere else (Xbox, Playstation and Ttwitter).

What’s you platform of choice?  Why?

Xbox, it just doesn’t feel like you are alone when you are gaming as you are when you play on the PS3. Maybe that is just me. Also I like the green.

Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?

Probably not the first time, but one of my earliest memories is playing boxing on the Atari. He broke the controller….

How long have you been gaming?

Since I was five, so 23 years.

When do you think you’ll stop gaming?

Saturday, 15 January 2028, that seems like a good date?

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

I enjoy a laugh but I do get competitive in games that I am kind of good in. Like driving/racing games. I like winning. When it comes to team deathmatch games though I am just fodder and laughter. Also profanity.

Singleplayer or multiplayer?

Singleplayer forever.

Is playing online important to you?

Yeah, My Xbox is constantly online, even when I play singleplayer games. When it goes offline it just feels weird.

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

No idea, you tell me? [Because no-one really likes you enough? – Undead Ed]

Favourite game currently?

Devil May Cry. I haven’t played it yet but I am enjoying it to bits… now if I can only get my hands on it…

Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming?  What?

I love movies as much as anyone I think. I also do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu sometimes and I enjoy writing.

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

A game: Grand Theft Auto… Hopefully by the time I get to this island the new one is out.

A CD: Dans Dans Lisa – My (eks)kuus.

A movie or TV series: South Park, movie and TV series.

An organic life form: Well, that is just disgusting.

Something edible or drinkable: Burgers.

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

I once got FIFA 12 in a controller bundle…

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

Basically, it will be GTA, but with a lot more hot coffee… if you know what I mean… [No. We never do. – Undead Ed]

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?

MK2 Lancer assault rifle of course.

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?

Like there is ever any question.

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

Ni No Kuni before the Undead Ed starts chewing my ear off. 

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.
