So Let’s Begin!

What’s the silliest mistake you’ve made in a game?

Okay so the silliest mistake I’ve made in a game would have to be with Fallout 3 for some reason I turned off Autosave and only had Manual saves on and decided to blow up Megaton to see what happened and didn’t like the way it went so decided to reload my save only to be 3 hours behind what I was doing. Doh!

Which game are you good at that you most want people to see you playing?

Well I don’t really like blowing my own trumpet but one of the games would be the Fallout Franchise but I don’t want this becoming a Fallout blog so another game I would say would be the Batman Franchise I love the Batman games and trying to solve all the riddles and defeat the enemies.

What’re the best 10 minutes you’ve spent playing a game?

Best 10 minutes playing a game is a hard one there are so many games I’ve enjoyed playing but one that sticks in my head so much would be the first time I played GTA 5 on Xbox and it blew me away with being involved in a Robbery, this game is still amazing 5 years on and I should play try and Complete it again on the Next Gen.

Do you have a favourite Let’s Play video?

I actually don’t have a Favourite Let’s Play video but it’s time to plug one of my writers for the blog and his videos on twitch IamKushnonstein plays many games and even done Strikes on Destiny 2 as well as playing UFC, PUBG, Fifa, COD and many more so go check him out!

Another thing is I’ve recently bought a Game Capture device and it will be delivered soon so hopefully I’ll be doing my own videos soon and when I do I will give you updates on them so keep checking back!

Is there a video game that’s changed your life?

A tough question again but I would say there were a few games that have changed my life ones being Resident Evil, Fallout Metal Gear Solid and of course Crash Bandicoot. These games changed my life and made me love gaming even more than usual and love seeing how gaming makes other happy or bring out their creative sides and just shows that gaming can change how people can be and what they do.

What’s the most passionate yet unimportant opinion you have about gaming or a particular game?

This is most probably the toughest question so far would be No Man’s Sky should have not released the game when they did. If they left it a year or so and had Multiplayer ready to go on release date as well as all the bug fixes and performance fixes the game would have been a game of the year the game has so much potential but lost it straight away I remember buying that game on release date and remember saying to myself what have I spent £50 on? However, it has potential even still now the updates are available and an Xbox release. image

Which video game character would represent your life as a gamer in spirit form?

Video game character to represent me would be easy I would choose The Lone Wanderer and my reason for this would be Adventurous, always determined and Survival! I always try to finish games if I can and will not just give up without a fight on games if a boss gets me down I get back up and keep fighting!

What game have you been wanting to start for a long time but still haven’t?

That’s an easy one my lovely girlfriend bought me LA Noire remastered on Xbox last year and I’ve not played it yet I need to and I’ve even installed it on the console I just haven’t started it but I’m looking forward to doing so but Spiderman has taken over!

How would you design the flag representing the online gaming community?

I take back what I said before this is the hard question, the online gaming community can be many things it can be sociable, playful, Adventurous and a fun place to be but it can also be Childish, Bullying and a dark place but I mainly see it being one big weird and happy family.

Which game was the most different to your expectations of it?

I’m going to say the new Spiderman game I saw everyone’s excitement over the game and just thought it was hyped and going to be another standard game but I was wrong the game is amazing I’ve only played it for a few hours and I’m in love with it and would say it is the best game I’ve played in a long time.

Has any game influenced the way you see the world?

In a way, many games have made me see the world in different ways for both good and bad but one game that influenced me would be Fortnite now I say this because I read an article recently online that has made Epic Games a massive $1 Billion in Microtransactions and made me think is this the way forward in gaming or are gaming companies taking advantage of releasing things in game to make people pay for them to make a quick buck.

Just made me think is this the new generation of gaming or is it just a trend that will die out.

I wrote an article a while back on Microtransactions and how I felt on the idea within console gaming.
