Better Know a Gamer: Issue #3: GerbilJammer0

Print Friendly

Nu: What’s your Gamertag, and what’s the story behind it?

GerbilJammer0 The story behind it is kind of boring actually. Everyone knows about the Richard Gere and gerbil rumor. That played a little part. Tha big part is back in the day when broadband first reached the masses… I was still on dial up. Everyone I played against in Quakeworld was high speed whereas I was a HPB. In order to compete, I had to revert to tactics such as hit in run, poke in the booty, and rocket rape. At that time my online persona wasn’t so politically friendly. During a clan match someone said I was as quick as a gerbil and I like to hit people from behind. Naturally it evolved into GerbilJammer.

Nu: Where are you from?

New Orleans, Louisiana

Nu: How old are you, and what do you do (school, job, family, hobbies)?

I’m a 28 year old Network Engineer and IT Administrator.

Nu: How long have you been gaming in general?

Ever since 1980. 🙂

Nu: How long have you been a 360 owner?

Since day one.

Nu: What was one of your favorite Xbox / Xbox Live moments?

Just enjoying games with friends and listening to the audible garbage that most people talk.

Nu: Which Xbox 360 Achievement are you most proud of?

Too many to list one.

Nu: Are you currently working toward any achievements?

I don’t really work towards achievements. I usually play a game and then look to see what achievements would make me play that game in a different manner to which I previously played through.

Nu: What game(s) are you playing the most now?

I’ve been playing some Guitar Hero 2 and 3. I still suck. Gears Of War (PC). Also Doom XBLA from time to time. No such thing as l337 skillz in Doom. Just pure fun.

Nu: What’s playing now (what music do you listen to when away from you Xbox or when listening to music ON your Xbox)?

AC/DC, Ozzy, ZZ Top

Nu: Do you try to stick with one Gamerpic, or change it frequently?

I try to stick with my LSU pic. I live in Arkansas, and it kills my friends to see the gamerpic every time they come over.

Nu: What is your current favorite Xbox related website to visit?

I like a bunch. 360voice.com, winbreak.com, kotaku.com, teamxbox.com, and xbox-scene.com.

Nu: What game are you looking most forward to in 2008?

I am still playing catchup on all the 2007 games.

Nu: Do you have an all time favorite game, for any console or the PC?

It has to be Unreal Tournament. No other game, not even it’s sequels, captures the refined gameplay.

Nu: Do you have any gaming buddies you frequently play with / want to make almost as famous as you?

NuAngel and the Hellz clan. A great bunch to sit back and enjoy some games with.

Nu: Any parting words for the droves of readers?

I am not famous. Might be soon because Microsoft keeps trying to make me change my gamertag, but suggests HamsterJammer as an alternative… I’ve got it on camera. And if you are having DRM issues with Xbox Live content, do not give up on getting a fix. Call back and demand for it to be fixed. Call back frequently to aggravate the hell out of them. It might take them escalating your problem to Jesus himself, but hopefully they will fix it.
