We haven’t done an issue of BKAG in a LONG time, and it is obvious the questions are (and were intended to be, in 2008) very Xbox centric… but perhaps it is time to update them? Well, Akbip was a good sport and made the necessary modifcations to be out 35th installment of Better Know a Gamer! If you’re interested, you can Nominate a Gamer, or even yourself, all you need is an email address! So read on and learn about Akbip!
NuAngel: What’s your Gamertag, and what’s the story behind it?
— Akbip (Steam). There is a hidden meaning that has never been told about it, but I think I will keep it that way :).

Nu: How long have you been gaming in general?
— About 20 years.
Nu: How long have you been a 360 owner?

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

Nu: Which Xbox 360 Achievement are you most proud of?
— My favorite Steam achievement probably has to be getting 1000 saps as spy. Not that it was hard, but it was the last one I got as I don’t do achievement idle servers.
