You know what? It feels great to be running a second ‘Profiled’ feature in a week again. Thank you to everyone out there who are so keen to be part of it.
Today’s gamer and streamer is another that makes it a little hard to be completely appreciative though. Seriously humans, what’s with all this zombie killing these days? We just want to hug, kiss
and bite as much as you do…
Go ahead. Introduce yourself. Don’t be shy.
Hi I’m Sluggy or Sam. Part time zombie slayer, casually preparing for the zombie outbreak while wearing my Michonne Cosplay.
You’ve just joined ViNCO as a streamer. Tell the readers more about how that came about and what you plan to do?
Well… Clint was nice enough to see the passion I have for streaming and of course the love I have for gaming. I now have a good reason too not leave my room anytime soon haha. What do I plan to do? Well let’s just say I’m taking it one step at a time and trying to produce the best stream possible and to have a JOL of time doing it ;).
What sort of gear do you use to run your streams?
Ok so this is the fun part…
I currently stream on a 4 upload 4 download connection.
For my PS4:
Elgato Game Capture
Programs I use:
CPU i5 6500
GPU Radeon R9 380
Motherboard MSI H110M
RAM 8GB G.Skill DDR4 2400mhz
PSU Corsair 650W
*I also have three monitors hooked up
What games do you usual stream, and how often do you do so?
I stream just about anything although lately I’ve been loving Black ops zombies, it always changes.
- Mondays – 7pm to 9pm
- Tuesdays – Off
- Wednesdays – 7pm to 9pm
- Thursday – Off
- Fridays – 8pm to 12am
- Saturdays – 8pm to 11pm
- Sundays – Off
What advise do you have for others looking to get into streaming?
Once you have a setup and good upload speed (cause this is the most important), having fun should be number one and of course be yourself!!! Reach out to other streamers and build a community that is supportive of others.
What’s you platform of choice? Why?
Oh this is hard I’m such a Sony fan yet those PC graphics just can’t compare.
Can you remember the first time you ‘gamed’?
Yes, I was around 4/5 when my dad bought me Nintendo entertainment system I clearly remember Charlie Circus a lot but when I was 6 my dad got Resident Evil this is how my obsession for zombies started.
How long have you been gaming?
When do you think you’ll stop gaming?
Is this a serious question, I don’t think I ever will! [You carry on with all this zombie killing nonsense and we might still have a say in this… – Undead Ed]
Are you a serious gamer? Or do you enjoy a laugh?
Hmmm I’m serious about laughing at myself!
Favorite game currently?
This is a hard question I want to say the Witcher only because that’s the only game I recently couldn’t stop playing it’s just so damn good.
Do you have any hobbies outside of gaming? What?
Nope, Gaming Is life, Gaming is love.
Let’s find out more about your mental state with a few fun questions…
You’re stranded on a desert island and a genie grants you five items. Name them:
A game: What’s the point of having a game without a console you can’t fool me with trick questions!
A CD: Definitely The Cat Empire’s album Steal the light
A movie or TV series: The Walking Dead
An organic life form: I want say a dog cause I might get lonely 🙁
Something edible or drinkable: Water
What’s the most embarrassing or worst game you’ve ever bought or received as a gift?
Sing Star, and the sad truth is I took it really serious for a while.
If you were a game designer, describe your ultimate game design.
I would make a game about the zombie apocalypse, it will be a mass multiplayer and no AI you decide if you want to group with other people online or you can kill them it’s your choice. But the catch is if you die in the game you can never play it again.
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?
Katana no doubt about it. I actually own one too 😉
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 don’t know I’d probably fight it out with the Humans we have a weird thing called will power that always prevails. [But if The Walking Dead taught you anything, you can’t trust humans. – Undead Ed]
Thanks for taking the time to answer our silly questions. What game are you off to play now that you’re done?
I don’t know but you can help me decide, why not pop into my stream to find out.
