Nu: What’s your Gamertag, and what’s the story behind it?
Well my gamertag (PSWii60 Elite) is my way of telling people I love games in general and Im not some console fanboy, though the 360 is my console of preference.
Nu: Where are you from?
Im a Floridian by birth, transplanted to Waldorf,MD, but ultimately unded up here in Beverly,MA for that past 20 some odd years.
Nu: How old are you, and what do you do (school, job, family, hobbies)?
Im going to be 35 exactly one month from this reply. Man Im getting old, has the cliche about games being for kids completely died yet?
Nu: That’s why we do Better Know a Gamer: to show gamers from all walks of life! How long have you been gaming in general?
My earliest gaming memories are from playing “Swiss Family Robinson” on the Commodore 64, MMmmmm, can I get some more bear steaks please?
Nu: How long have you been a 360 owner?
Ive been a 360 owner since launch, I currently play on an Elite, also since they launched.
Nu: What was one of your favorite Xbox / Xbox Live moments?
My favorite game moment was winning an online game of NHL07 against a player who was ranked 3rd on the leaderboards. However I still consider the first time I logged onto XBoxLive right up there with my favorite gaming experiences of all time, I had a Rainbow Six 3 session that lasted about two days straight, thats right, no sleep.
Nu: Oh the addictive and unbelievable nature of Xbox Live’s birth. 🙂 Which Xbox 360 Achievement are you most proud of?
This kind of a lame answer, but Id have to say the “Complete 30 years of a franchise” in Madden 06 was my proudest moment since it was the one that gave me 1000 points in the game. Madden 06 is currently the only game I have 1000 points in. I dont really try to hard for achievements, as you can tell since Ive played almost every game on the system and only one with 1000 points.
Nu: Are you currently working toward any achievements?
I wouldnt mind getting all the NHL08 achievements. Some of them are pretty hard if you do it honestly. Some require you to play in Superstar mode. Anyone who has played that will tell you the AI is so cheap that its incredibly difficult.
Nu: I can respect that! What game(s) are you playing the most now?
Mostly COD4, NHL08 and Frontlines: Fuels of War.
Nu: What’s playing now (what music do you listen to when away from your Xbox or when listening to music ON your Xbox)?
Ill listen to anything that isnt hip hop, or country. Mostly Flaw, Megadeth, Cold Play, John Mayer, Pink Floyd, Bullet For My Valentine, Ben Harper, Foo Fighters and some Bob Marley.
Nu: Megadeath to Cold Play? You might have more diverse tastes than me!! Do you try to stick with one Gamerpic, or change it frequently?
The gamerpic that my friends see is usually the same one, but the other one that non-friends see changes a lot.
Nu: What game are you looking most forward to in 2008?
I cant wait to get my hands on NHL09 or Unreal Tournament III!
Nu: Do you have an all time favorite game, for any console or the PC?
Id have to say Battlefield 1942 for the PC, I wish that experience could be duplicated on the console, so far I think Frontlines has come the closest, but the game doesnt seem to get any props, dont know why.
Nu: Operation Wolf on the Commodore 64 was similar… alright, maybe not. Do you have any gaming buddies you frequently play with / want to make almost as famous as you?
There are the friends ive played with from the begining AXO4, Lacrymosa, VarmintCong, Bill Slowsky420, and some newer ones like taintedzodiac, cheesnrice.
Nu: Any parting words for the droves of readers?
Only to remember, everyone was a newb at one time or another, so stop the newb persecution and let them have fun too.
Nu: Excellent parting words! Thanks for taking part in Better Know a Gamer, only on WinBreak.com! I tracked down PSWii60 Elite on the forums over at Goozex, which has a great community growing in their forums, even though you might not expect it from the site itself. Maybe I’ll see some more of you there! Thanks again to PSWii60 Elite!
