Gears Guardian League – A sneaky Ninja

By Chris ‘spiros za’ Hartley

Just as I started writing this and thinking of what to add for the opening paragraph to this interview I realized something… We have a very active, yet very small Gears community in SA! Everyone knows everyone and to some certain extents (after this tourney, you can add more. Personally I’ve added about 10 new guys to my friends list just because of Gears) some of us know each other personally even though we have never seen each other!

One of the few that we all know is Ninjascreed (my Gatsby eating bruvva…). A fun loving young man that plays Gears for Gears and because it’s just plain fun…

Gears Guardian League – Hold on, er, Holden

If ever you have found yourself playing Gears at 01:00 – 02:00 in the morning, chances are there is just one lobby going, that lobby, 90% of the time, consist of Holden, Vandal and Doc [For our international readers, we are specifically talking about a South African lobby…these three clowns are not as internationally renowned as they think they are – (Undead) Ed].  The conversation that takes place in that lobby is nothing short of “WTF are we talking about?”.

From Yo’ mama jokes right down to Holden’s undying love for TT (yes TT, he does love you and we can only imagine the children that could be spawned if you two should meet someday, somewhere…). It adds to huge entertainment and lots of fun. Holden’s quick and witty sense of humour (and killer sniper skills) makes him a firm favourite amongst the late night players…

Gears Guardian League – Gears, a couple’s game….

Ever wondered what it would be like if your better half was just as much of a gaming freak as you are? We seemed to have found the perfect combination of understanding one another, knowing each other and enjoying games together (not that type guys, contain yourselves, pa-lease).

We scratched the surface on these two a bit to delve deeper into the minds of what makes a gaming couple tick and to find out what they thought about the ongoing Gears Tourney. As one can expect LittleG’s answers were short and to the point, like a man should do (we even do this when shopping…) and Shorty, well, let’s just say was a bit more “coloured in” (just the same as a woman’s way of shopping).  [Sexist male pig – Totally disgusted (Undead) Ed :D]

I sent them the exact same questions, BUT, I asked them to answer in secret and not let the other one see his/her answers…Shorty in red and LittleG in blue
