"WHO AM I? I like games and loud music!"
WHEN/HOW DID YOU FIRST HEAR ABOUT ME?
I first heard about you a few years back from a friend of mine, at the time I was really busy because I had a lot of exams at the time, so I followed you on twitter because I have been a big twitter user for ages. So after my exams we’re done and I had free time I checked out your website and since then I’ve tried to make it to every live stream, online match and anything I can really.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
Currently I’m at college doing Biology, Chemistry and Geology at A-level. However college over here in England is different to the States because here it’s a sort of bridge between school and university so to go onto university you need to really go through college. I would have been going onto university in September but I decided to stay on for an extra year at college to better my chances of getting into a good university.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM JOB?
I would probably say marine biology, I would love going around the world looking at all different kinds of marine life. I just think that would be an amazing experience :D
IF A ROACH THE SIZE OF A FOOTBALL WAS ATTACKING ME, WOULD YOU KILL IT OR RUN AWAY?
I would probably start by thinking “blimey that’s a big roach”. Then launch up V.A.T.S. and shoot that thing with a BB gun, roach dead. You are safe to return home! Karma points gained!
YOU DO KNOW YOU'RE MISSING A "3" IN YOUR ALIAS RIGHT? ;)
I believe you may have mentioned it once or twice, haha. I did change my ustream name though, twitter that account is taken because I did try. I also created a psn account for my shiny new vita and it would not let me use jk1337, I don’t know why though. It also wouldn’t let me have jk137 though.
WHO IS YOUR DADDY AND WHAT DOES HE DO?!
My dad is a water treatment chemist for a power station a few miles away from where I live. He works for Centrica so helps supply everyone’s electricity, for such things and toasters, fridges and most importantly, games consoles!!!
I'M A HUGE ANIMAL LOVER. DO YOU HAVE ANY PETS? I MUST KNOW!
I do! I have a German shepherd called Max. He’s 4 now but he is mad, he has earned the nickname mad Max because he just loves charging about at the most random of times. He is also one of the biggest cowards I have ever seen the smallest thing that has scared him was a rabbit. Don’t even know what happened just this particular rabbit scared him one day, perhaps it was the killer bunny from Monty Python?
WHAT GENRE OF MOVIES DO YOU ENJOY MOST? CAN YOU RECOMMEND 5 MOVIES FOR US VIEWERS?
I definitely enjoy sci-fi and fantasy the most, first one I have to recommend is Serenity which is one of my favourite movies of all time! Pitch Black really good film. Aliens, must have seen that about 100 times. Predator, get to the chopper!!!, I’m counting this as one even though it’s 3, the lord of the rings films, those are the only really long movies I can sit through and pay attention from start to end.
HAVE YOU EVER PLAYED ANY SPORTS GROWING UP? IF YES, DID YOU GET ANY TROPHIES OR RIBBONS? MEMORABLE PENALTIES? INJURIES?
Growing up I did a few sports, when I was very young I played football, because England is nothing if not football mad, however I didn’t like it. I had been swimming from a really early age I think I joined a club when I was maybe 4 and I did that right up until I was 15 when the pool I went to closed down. I did a competition when I was 10 for swimming and I entered I think 7 races and won them all, then at the end found out there were no trophies or ribbons or anything for any of the races which was pants. I also did Karate for 9 years but gave that up just before college because it was getting difficult to get to the club to train, I never actually entered any competitions for that so again no trophies. However I did get a fair few injuries, the worst of which I remember was when we were being shown how to do a lock and the guy I was working with did the lock then twisted my arm round a bit too far and my wrist got pulled out of its socket and then when he let go it dropped back in, it’s fine now but if I move my wrist it clicks now which is kind of annoying haha.
HAVE YOU EVER MADE GREEN EGGS AND HAM?
Dr. Suess! I actually think I did when I was really young, it probably didn’t go well. But I do remember that song which I am pretty sure I had on tape, which I need to now dig out and play so I can remember all the words!
video game questions
IF YOU COULD BRING A HOT DATE TO ANY VIDEO GAME WORLD, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE? WHAT WOULD Y'ALL DO? PLEASE ELABORATE!
Mass Effect universe (before the reapers hit of course). Starting off on the Citadel, getting a nice apartment in the presidium for a while, go to the marketplace with all my credits get some nice future tech, maybe a space hamster. Pick my favourite store on the citadel, then jet off head through the relay and probably head to Ilium, I think that’s a pretty nice place if a little shady in places, drugs and everything going round the place. Just for pure curiosity take a very quick visit to Tuchanka, more so at the temple ruins but maybe not stop off for too long because Tuchanka is a very dangerous place to be, maybe hire some Krogan guard to help out with that trip. This is turning into a rather long date but the final stop makes it worth it I think. So after getting off Tuchanka, head off to Thessia, I think Thessia would be a really nice place to visit, didn’t see much of it because it was being invaded at the time I saw it but it still looked like a nice place to be, and that would be the final stop before heading back to Earth. Maybe head off to a nice cave in the middle of the amazon jungle before the reapers hit.
WASD, ABXY, OR XO^? WHAT DREW YOU INTO THAT GAMING SYSTEM?
Xbox, I do a little bit of PC gaming but right now my PC is dead so I need to get it fixed . The main reason I went with xbox is because I had a ps1 and it was a good little console but I wasn’t that hooked on it and I used my gameboy more than I did the ps1. So when the xbox original was announced I leaned more toward that, still not sure it was the right choice but it was fun so with the xbox original was where I really got into console gaming, then the 360 came out and I waited a while and after looking at it compared to the ps3 I decided to go with the 360 a lot of my friends then got them too so we all used to play online a lot. I do now have a vita and when I get my pc back up and get a few upgrades I will definitely be doing more pc gaming too, but my 360 will always be my primary platform.
WHAT VIDEO GAME ARE YOU MOST PROUD TO SAY YOU'VE BEAT? HOW DID YOU GO ABOUT BEATING IT?
I have to go fairly recent on this and say Dark Souls, that game was pretty tough. I beat it after putting a good 60 hours into it at least, because what I did was about probably 7 hours worth of level grinding and just got my level up really high then just went for it through to the final boss. When I finally beat that boss it was the best feeling, then I started up NG+ and now I’m stuck again so to the level grinder!
DO YOU TRADE IN YOUR GAMES OR KEEP THEM?
I always keep my games, even if I just couldn’t get into them they just sit on my shelf and then I normally end up giving them a go again later or they just sit there forever, it’s such a waste haha.
HAVE YOU EVER PLAYED A GAME YOU'RE EMBARRASSED ABOUT? WE ALL HAVE AT LEAST ONE. *COUGH* *COUGH* FLIGHT ATTENDANT DS *COUGH*
Ben 10: protector of earth,on DS…..I was in a service station and it was going cheap! Don’t judge me!
IF YOU COULD TAKE ONE GAME AND RE-NAME THE MAIN CHARACTER, WHICH GAME WOULD IT BE AND WHAT NAME WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Adam Jensen from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, I feel he was way too serious so I would re-name him Sgt. P. Figgles. No one would be able to take him seriously, he might be a one man army but you just can’t imagine the enemy screaming in terror as Sgt. P. Figgles rolls in.
DO YOU HAVE A POTTY MOUTH AND "SHIT TALK" IN MULTIPLAYER GAMES?
I actually never have, I never really use a mic in public games. As for the potty mouth, I never swear haha. This doesn’t really count as trash talk but the only thing I can remember someone getting annoyed at me and my friend for was one time when bohemian rhapsody came on my friends laptop and he started singing it so then so did I, then everyone on our team joined in and this one guy got really annoyed and was telling everyone to shut up but then he left and the song was sung until the very end by all, which I call a 100% positive result :L.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE YOUR CAR HORN INTO ANY VIDEO GAME NOISE, WHAT WOULD THAT "HONK" BE?(I'D PROBABLY WANT LUIGI'S "HUMMING" FROM LUIGI'S MANSION. hehe)
I’m going to have to follow probably the majority here and say Navi from Ocarina of time. But if I had to pick another I would get this one line from Uncharted: golden abyss where Nate says “I can see my house from here” in a silly voice. I don’t know why I just feel like that could work haha.
WHAT VIDEO GAME ARE YOU PLAYING NOW-A-DAYS? LOVING IT? HATING IT?
On 360 I got Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and I got kind of bored of it and started playingMinecraft. Meanwhile on vita I have just finished Uncharted: Golden Abyss and I loved it, so now I’m starting gravity rush which is pretty good.
ZOMBIES ARE COMING AT YOU READY TO EAT YOUR BRAINS. WHICH WEAPON WOULD YOU FEEL MOST COMFORTABLE HAVING AT THIS MOMENT?
I would probably say Katana, because after discussing this at length with various people, guns run out of ammo fast and chainsaws need fuel or power and are heavy.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE AMERICAN FOOD?
Ham Burgers! I was in Florida a couple years back and I had the best burger I have ever had there, we just don’t get good burgers over here in England, or you know good food.
Molly Quinn!!! She plays Alexis Castle on the tv show Castle.
VIDEO GAME ON AN OLD-SCHOOL CONSOLE? WHY?
Pokemon Yellow on my old gameboy colour because I still pick up that game from time to time, I loved having a little Pikachu following me round it just had something about it that I loved.
VIDEO GAME ON A NEW-GENERATION CONSOLE? WHY?
I couldn’t pick just one I could narrow it down to probably top 3, which would be Mass effect 3, Gears of war 3 or Prototype 2. I love all of those games ME3 for story (did not mind the ending), GOW3 because I love the gameplay in that. Prototype 2 because well a sneeze in the game could level half a city!
I pay attention to your updates and your site, and Roosterteeth I think those guys put out some really funny stuff :P
Pepperoni! I love me some pepperoni! Yum yum!
They have a serenity scale model which I love! It looks so cool!
Tomska, I find his videos hilarious. But you and Cliff singing one direction, that was cool and also now I know me and my friends are not weird for doing the same thing.
I had some sushi from Tesco once…. It’s shameful but I have never had proper sushi, I’m not really sure where around here does it.
I have two, first is firefly which my friend Raychul introduced me to a while back, and second is and you will be pleased to hear this, game of thrones, which you introduced me to I started watching it after we finished horde 2.0 back in October, so thank you! :D
