Nu: What’s your Gamertag, and what’s the story behind it?
I’m Qualitybeats84 – which comes from my music production name: Qualitybeats. Nothing special here – sorry!

Nu: Where are you from?
I’m Southeastern, MA – 40 minutes from Boston

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

Since 5 years old. NES 4 Life! 🙂

Nu: How long have you been a 360 owner?
Since release.

Nu: What was one of your favorite Xbox / Xbox Live moments?
This is a hard question. ONE of my favorites would be experiencing the opening scene to Prey and playing it through. I’ve never seen portals done that well before Prey. Another might be the first time I stepped into “The Mall” in Fallout 3’s D.C.

Nu: Which Xbox 360 Achievement are you most proud of?
One Gun – Dead Space – It was so difficult to hold myself back from using a new weapon when achieving this one. I get extra credit points cause I did it on my first and only playthrough.

Nu: Are you currently working toward any achievements?
Bustin’ Out – Burnout:Paradise – Collecting all Billboards seems impossible at times…but I’ll get it.

Nu: What game(s) are you playing the most now?
Bully: SE, Mass Effect, Burnout:Paradise, Bioshock – I’m backlogging….as you can see.

Only 2 CDs on my Xbox right now. Meshuggah: Nothing and Wu-Tang: Forever

Nu: Do you try to stick with one Gamerpic, or change it frequently?
I’m constantly changing it. Currently, I got my podcast logo on it – but I have had a tribute to EGM and Mario/Nintendo.

Nu: What is your current favorite Xbox related website to visit?
Hmmm….I spend most of my “e-time” on multi-system Blog/cast sites but I use for a lot of ques and purchases so –

Nu: What game are you looking most forward to in 2009?
I Am Alive, Prototype, and H.A.W.X are looking great.

Nu: Do you have an all time favorite game, for any console or the PC?
My favorite game to date on consoles is Final Fantasy III – PC would be a tie between StarCraft and Half-Life.

Nu: Do you have any gaming buddies you frequently play with / want to make almost as famous as you?
All the guys at – X3R0_9, Mr.B4, Kemanswar, DaPhilth84 from our Booom!BoxCast and my homie – PimpMethod.

Nu: Any parting words for the droves of readers?
Don’t let casual games run us out of water. Keep an open artistic mind when it comes to gaming experience and support development companies that do amazing work. Play Portal, Braid, Flower, & Bioshock – cause their great games. Last, please give Booom!BoxCast a listen – we’re conciouse hip hop infused hardcore game geeks… many of them do you know? 🙂 Thanks for reading this. WinBreak rules!
