What gift would you like to receive on the upcoming holidays?
World peace. Unwrapping it would be hard, but I think it'd have infinite replay value. :)
Would you marry a robot?
A good looking one? Well, as long as there was a pre-nuptial about neither of us taking over the world in armed robotic rebellion. . .
What do you think was the most significant news story of the year?
Significance is sure a broad category for this or any year. If you wanna talk about the negative end of the spectrum, it has to be all of 2013's online bugs accompanying some of the most troubled game releases of the year. Battlefield 4, GTA Online, Sim City, the list goes on and on with the sad state of affairs that online patching can't seem to keep up with. That along with the studio closures of late and the NSA's dark shadow over the biggest game companies in the industry put gaming in some uncomfortable places for sure.
Positives? The amount of indies finally coming into their own and getting some of the attention I think they've deserved for a long time. I'm also happy that the Wii U is slowly but surely getting the killer apps it needs with Super Mario 3D World and at least a few great titles like Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 8 in the near future. I'm just as pumped that such great games like Mirror's Edge, Star Wars Battlefront, and Final Fantasy XV are finally getting revisited in the limelight, but it's bittersweet that we probably won't get to see their results anytime soon.
I suppose this year's been a collection of the good, the bad, the ugly, and even more good just like any other year. Even more so with two new consoles on the market and a lot to look forward to as much as worry about. It's a great time to write about games as much as play them, and I sure hope we have as much to look forward to as I think we do.
What things do you love?
Loves itself. It's a many splendored thing. :)
What is your favorite pic of yourself?
Easy question at that: the picture with me and Sir Patrick Stewart. Yes! It's totally real!
If you could go back in history, who would you like to meet?
Anywhere in history? Well, with that kind of power in my hand, and assuming that I spoke every language and knew every necessary social custom then I guess it'd have to be Jesus. Who wouldn't say that that'd be the biggest interview of all history? Plus I'd just wanna see how much his robes aren't that pristine white from Sunday school books.
Who is your most hated celebrity?
Probably the ones in Washington that pretend to be. . .
What do you think people think of you?
I dunno, but I hope they at least think about me. . . a lot. I've always wanted to dance over people's heads like sugar plums on Christmas eve. . . :P
Do you have posters on your wall?
Yup, two Star Wars ones and a world map. Used to have a nifty Spider-man 3 poster that I got for preordering the movie game (boy, that was disappointing. . .), but took it down for space a couple of years ago.
Post a selfie?
YOU post a selfie!
What was the last movie you watched that was really good?
It'd be a tie between Gravity and Brokeback Mountain. Gravity was an unrelenting thrill-ride from beginning to end and I've seen only a few movies that could top Brokeback's moving story. I enjoyed Thor 2 recently, but I couldn't recommend the former two more as two of my all-time favorites if I had a. . . hmm, maybe a top 25 list. I should make that list. . .
What's one thing you refuse to pay for?
"Can't buy me looooooove. . . looooooovvve. Can't buy me looooovvee. . ."
What drink do you prefer when you’re thirsty?
Green Tea, lemonade, orange juice, a whole lotta things whet me whistle as long as it isn't alcoholic or carbonated, mostly fruit juices I suppose. Water's always fine as a last resort.
What type of people are you afraid of?
We have nothing to fear but fear itself. . . so I suppose we're still very, very afraid. . . :P
Where do you feel most safe?
"In the jungle, the might jungle, the lion sleeps tonight (a wing a way)". . .
Have you been to any cool concerts lately?
I can admit that I've never really been to any concerts period minus a few church ones so many years back. I'm mostly going to experience my music from a screen of some sorts, but I sure wish I did get out more. Definitely worth it to see quite a few bands live. If anyone, I'd love to see Poets of the Fall onstage. If you haven't heard of 'em, look 'em up. . . weeelll, minus the goth parts I suppose. ;)
Hmmm.., of all the questions? Let see of you can get this right: Who am I? I'll give you a hint: I'm someone from GI.
Are you bigger than a bread box? Do you. . . have a love for spherical pink Nintendo characters? Does everything begin with this world? Or does Phoenix Wright or Dr. Professors ring a bell? Sorry, I know I'M not the one to be asking the questions here. ;) If not the former guesses, I could only hope your a staffer asking me about a job. . . :)
What will you never do?
. . . Ever think of a witty answer to this question. Sorry, pretty slow today. Maybe I don't rule out anything. . . I always did want to be Darth Vader or a dinosaur at one point in my young life. Maybe it boils down to those two awesome dreams. Or ever getting a triple paying game journalist job. *sigh* One can dream. . .
Who would you like to be?
Me. I'm all I've got. :P
What will you never do?
Well, according to my life's philosophy, I aim to never say never when it comes to achievements. Wait--I just did say it. Damn.
What is your attitude to smoking?
Only slightly more stylish than breathing in chimney fumes. :P Seriously, don't bother.
What is the least stressful job you can think of?
Whoever writes long congressional bills. No one ever seems to read their work anyways. :P
What do you usually forget?
Hmm. . . let's see. . . darn. Can't remember. . .
What are the first things you notice when you meet someone?
Their hair, their eyes, their walk, their tone of voice, their posture, mouth, facial expressions. . . guess I'm sounding like some police profiler or something. :P
If you were a scientist, what would you invent?
The noble me would want to make, I guess, a cure for cancer or some "stupidity be gone." The selfish me would want to make a next-gen Superman game that finally did the Last Son of Krypton justice along with a COMPLETED Final Fantasy XV, a great Stargate SG1 game, Battlefront III, and Last Guardian, in that order. No, screw that, just make a good Star Wars: Episode VII. I'll beat J.J. Abrams at least.
