Better Know a Gamer: #25: TP of Justice

25. I never considered it a lucky number, but it’s certainly a nice milestone to hit! So let’s not delay!

Nu: What’s your Gamertag, and what’s the story behind it?
TP of Justice. I’m really into comics/super heroes so I wanted to have a gamertag that was heroic but also funny so I thought up Toilet Paper of justice that all doesn’t fit so I abbreviated Toilet Paper with TP but lots of people don’t know what TP stands for so I tell them to guess and they come up with suggestions such as Tit Puncher, Terrible Penguin, etc.

Nu: Wow. Just wow. lol Where are you from?
Eastpointe, MI about 10 mins. from Detroit

Nu: I visited Detroit for a 3D Studio Max training class, back in high school! How old are you, and what do you do (school, job, family, hobbies)?
I’m 19 years old living at home and attending Macomb Community College studying Business Management. I got my first job a week out of High School doing Landscaping and Snow Removal and I’ve been working at the same place for 2 years. Outside of work and school when I‘m not gaming I love to go concerts of bands you probably never heard of

Nu: How long have you been gaming in general?
Since I was 6 or so when my mom convinced me to buy Mortal Kombat on the Sega Genesis because it was cheaper than the game I originally wanted, little did she know this would lead me down a path of violent video game addiction

Nu: Ha! That is awesome! How long have you been a 360 owner?
since September 16, 2007 when I decide to buy myself the Halo 3 Limited Edition Xbox 360 as an early birthday present because I wanted to start doing online gaming and could finally afford one

Nu: What was one of your favorite Xbox / Xbox Live moments?
I don’t really have a favorite I just enjoy playing with random outrageously funny people or being just as ridiculous to unsuspecting people.

Nu: Which Xbox 360 Achievement are you most proud of?
all of the achievements in Quake 2, because I haven’t met a person who also does. They’re all 0 points and I have them all because what are achievements actually worth?

Nu: Yes you have! I got’em all! Are you currently working toward any achievements?
All of the achievements I don’t have, but mostly I’d like to 5 star all songs in Guitar Hero 2 and 3 on expert and I only have a few left.

Nu: What game(s) are you playing the most now?
Left 4 Dead, Gears of War 2, and SuperStreetFighter 2 HD

Nu: What’s playing now (what music do you listen to when away from your Xbox or when listening to music ON your Xbox)?
Some of the bands you never heard of : As Blood Runs Black, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Acacica Strain, Horse the Band, Impending Doom, A Day To Remember and many many more

Nu: I actually love most of those bands! Horse the Band is quite rare. We should hang out, more! Don’t forget Between the Buried and me! Do you try to stick with one Gamerpic, or change it frequently?
I change it every couple weeks or so and have it relate whatever my Bio stuff. I would really like to have a Dr. Doom gamerpic but Microsoft for some strange reason removed the Marvel Ultimate Alliance pic packs from Marketplace. I guess they already have enough money to bathe in.

Nu: What is your current favorite Xbox related website to visit?
Xbox360Achivements.org is my homepage but I prefer Wikipedia for all news/rumors.

Nu: What games are you looking most forward to in 2009?
In order: The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, Guitar Hero: Metallica, Street Fighter 4, Halo Wars.

Nu: Do you have an all time favorite game, for any console or the PC?
It’s too hard for me to decide on one, GIGGITY!

Nu: Do you have any gaming buddies you frequently play with / want to make almost as famous as you?
The unofficial anti-clan Clan of: Yo Baby Daddy X, Nasty Poison, XcrotonX

Nu: Any parting words for the droves of readers?
If you play online use a headset or don’t play at all and I lose more than you do, be jealous.

Nu: Take that, everyone who isn’t TP of Justice! Thanks again, and there’s always more room for more in Better Know a Gamer.

Been Waiting on Mass Effect? Get the 2-disc edition!


I was taking a stroll through the Gamestop website when I saw something I had no idea was coming. A preorder for a new 2 disc edition of Mass Effect. According to Gamestop, the package is nothing too deluxe.

Disc 1- Mass Effect video game.
Disc 2- Documentary, Game Trailers, Music, Design Galleries & Bring Down the Sky.

Makes me wish I hadn’t bought it all for the sum of $70… but at the same time, it was worth all $70. One of my favorite games of the last 5 years!

Better Know a Gamer: Issue #24: borocouncilman

This time we’re featuring a name that could ring a bell from one of Trixie360’s previous community spotlights, borocouncilman!

Nu: What’s your Gamertag, and what’s the story behind it?
borocouncilman. I am an elected official in Doylestown Borough. Yes, I am actually a borough councilman and currently serve as the President of the Council. I was elected in 2005, same year the 360 launched. I am up for re-election this year so I’ve got a busy year ahead.

Nu: Good luck on that front! 21 Million members of Xbox Live are rooting for you! Where are you from?
Doylestown, PA which is the county seat of Bucks County. It’s about an hour outside of Philadelphia.

Nu: I lived in York for the last year! We should’ve met up in Lancaster or something. Maybe next time. How old are you, and what do you do (school, job, family, hobbies)?
37 years old. Married with 3 kids. I have several software businesses that I am involved with at the moment. I’d characterize myself as a serial entrepreneur. My hobbies include Motorcycles and Radio Controlled contraptions that fly. Of course, my web site http://1337pwn.com which offers free XBOX Live apps for the iPhone and Android/G1.

Nu: And why aren’t there any Windows Mobile apps on there yet? I have been watching your site like a hawk, hoping… waiting. So, how long have you been gaming in general?
I have been playing video games for more than 30 years. As a kid, I spent time in Arcades and behind my computer. I feel like I’ve played something on every platform released during that time.

Nu: How long have you been a 360 owner?
I bought mine a few weeks after the launch using one of those 360 locator sites. Didn’t pay a penny over retail and had it in time for Christmas.

Nu: What was one of your favorite Xbox / Xbox Live moments?
While playing Halo 3 on coop, a warthog was dropped onto a friend and killed him. It was a “you had to be there” kind of moment and funny as heck.

Nu: Which Xbox 360 Achievement are you most proud of?
The Crackdown achievement where you find the agility orbs took a lot of work and dedication.

Nu: I had nightmares about hearing those orbs until I found them all! Are you currently working toward any achievements?
I fully intend to complete all of the Geometry Wars 2 achievements. I’m close.

Nu: What game(s) are you playing the most now?
I have been a Geometry Wars 2 addict, because I can go in and out quickly. Plus, I can play it with the kids around. There’s also my rediscovery of PacMan Championship Edition — superlative classic experience.

Nu: What’s playing now (what music do you listen to when away from your Xbox or when listening to music ON your Xbox)?
Radiohead and Hybrid are the two getting the most playlist action at the moment.

Nu: Excellent, excellent choices. Do you try to stick with one Gamerpic, or change it frequently?
I have been changing it more with the arrival of the avatars. Maybe, it’s more fun now.

Nu: What is your current favorite Xbox related website to visit?
I frequent Joystiq, XBOX360Fanboy, and a cast of others.

Nu: What game are you looking most forward to in 2009?
Killzone 2. I know, it’s a PS3 game. Is that wrong? Halo ODST will probably be great, but Killzone 2 looks “fresher”. I’m an equal opportunity gamer.

Nu: Killzone 2 does look good. I try to be open to more general video game news, but I’ve sold all but 2 of my PS3 games, and my Wii isn’t even hooked up. I’m a 360 addict, what can I say? Do you have an all time favorite game, for any console or the PC?
Tough one, but I’m going to have to stick with Racing Destruction Set on the Commodore 64.

Nu: Holy crap I had forgotten about that game! Now I need to tear apart my attic, thanks! Do you have any gaming buddies you frequently play with / want to make almost as famous as you?
I frequently play online with MonstroCromo, my 30 something “little brother.” When he gets the kids to bed, we get our game on.

Nu: Any parting words for the droves of readers?
As much as I enjoy video games, it’s good to spend some time out in the real world away from the machine. Time flies by and you don’t want to miss out on life. Have fun!
Nu: The serial entrepreneur has not missed out on life, I would say! We should all take a page from him and keep striving for… well, anything! Clearly, he’s not afraid to go out and try something new!
