This week’s guest goes by a few names you may have heard. Tapio, with the gamertag Poetricks, is the latest addition to Better Know a Gamer. So sit back and get to know someone!
Nu: What’s your Gamertag, and what’s the story behind it?
I kind of used Poetricks as my poetry name, and the style i do the poetry when I write poetry I add my own twist to it, and so im “trickin with poetry”… Poetricks. I guess that should make sense!
Nu: I can dig that – I went to school and majored in poetry (well, “English” with a concentration in “Creative Writing” – but I took all poetry classes). Where are you from?
Finland, the land of lakes and forests.
Nu: Your weather should be pretty similar to mine then… cold… and getting colder. How old are you, and what do you do (school, job, family, hobbies)?
I`m 19 currently not working or in school,pretty much trying to find that perfect school for me,i dont want to rush with what i want to become “when i grow up.”
Nu: How long have you been gaming in general?

Around the time when Saints Row 1 got released.
Nu: What was one of your favorite Xbox / Xbox Live moments?
Theres so many of them,but one of the first favorite moments was when playing Splinter Cell chaos theory online on Xbox. I was mercenary and spy gets me on chokehold spy told me if i wanted to hear a neck break..i said no..but he still did it.
Nu: Which Xbox 360 Achievement are you most proud of?
I think it`s the Defender achievement on GRAW2.

Nu: Do you have an all time favorite game, for any console or the PC?
Super Mario World on SNES and Halo:Combat Evolved on Xbox

I would have to say i have too many gaming buddies to mention, but shoutout to TwilightMonk who is fellow pirate in our pirate clan..yarr!
