Dankinia
« on: March 05, 2012, 10:48:31 AM »

What's the story behind your Gamertag?
Well the short answer is I made it up.  The longer answer is…I took an ancient Babylonian mythology class in college and one of the goddesses we read about was named Damkina.  I altered the spelling and came up with Dankinia when I signed up on a forum shortly after that and the name stuck.  I've been using it ever since. 

Where do you live?
Arizona also known as "the freaking desert"

What do you do for a living?
I'm a fraud/compliance analyst for a charge card company. 

What is the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?
I was a cashier at Wal-mart for about 2 years.  I hated it. 

How long have you been playing videogames?
Since the mid 80’s I think but I stuck mainly to Nintendo consoles.  But I never had an original xbox and I've only had the 360 since July of 2010. 

What is the first videogame you ever played?
Super Mario Bros. I think. 

How often do you play videogames?
Pretty much every day, but not always on the Xbox.  I also play computer games. 

What hobbies do you enjoy besides videogames?
I read a lot of books.  I guess I am a boring person since I only have time for two hobbies.   
 
What's your gaming setup like?
I have my Xbox hooked up to a 42” HD TV. 

What's your favorite multiplayer game?
It's a tossup between Gears and Halo.  It depends on my mood I guess. 

What's your favorite single player game?
Fallout 3

What's your favorite downloadable/indie game?
I'm not sure I have one.

What future game are you most looking forward to?
Right now, I think I looking forward to Tomb Raider the most. 
 
What do you think is the best game of all time?
I'm really not sure on this one. 

What do you think is the best film of all time?
While I know it is far from the best film ever made, my favorite movie is The Boondock Saints.

What do you think is the best album of all time?
I don't really have an answer for this one.

What's your funniest 360° Fahrenheit moment?
Well….That would have to be when I accidentally killed one of my team mates with the score board in the Gears 3 beta. 
 
What is your greatest gaming moment?
I'm not sure I have a greatest gaming moment. 

What's your favorite TV show that's currently running?
It's a toss up between Criminal Minds and NCIS.

What's your favorite TV show that's no longer running?
That one is easy.  Law and Order
 
If they made a movie about your life, who would play you?
I would.  No one else could do it justice. 
 
What one celebrity would you like to be stranded on a desert island with?
I can't think of an answer for this one.

What's your karaoke song?
I don't sing.  But if I did, it would be something by Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers.
 
What is the last book you read?
To the Nines by Janet Evanovich I think.  I read so many books I can't be sure if that was the last one or not.   

What fictional character is most like you?
I don't have an answer for this one.

What superpower would you like to have?
Teleportation so I could just be where ever I wanted to be instantly.  No need to drive, fly, or walk anywhere.  Just blink and I'm there. 
 
If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be?
Someone with a lot of money.  I'd love to be able to sit at a high stakes poker game in Vegas and wager tons of someone else’s money for a day.
 
What celebrity would be the worst roommate?
Any of them. 
 
Who's your favorite superhero?
I would have to say Wonder Woman.  We used to watch the show when I was younger. 
 
Who's your favorite videogame character?
Lara Croft
 
Who's your favorite actor?
I don't really have a favorite actor. 
 
Who's your favorite band/artist?
Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers.  I know most of you have never heard of them, but they are awesome. 
 
What is your favorite movie quote?
“We must all fear evil men, but there is an evil we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.”  - The boondock Saints

What's the worst food you've ever eaten?
Cheese Curds.  Ok they might not have been the worst, but I really not a fan of them at all.

What do you predict will be the "next big thing" in gaming?
I have no idea.

What is the most awesome place you have been?
This is another tough question.  I guess I would have to say Las Vegas because it is one of my favorite places to visit and there is always a ton of stuff to do there.
 
What is the most awesome place you haven't been yet?
I'd love to go to Egypt one day and see the Pyramids, but I doubt that will ever happen.
 
Complete this sentence: "People of Earth, …”
…bow down and worship my greatness. 

Final thoughts?
This took me a lot longer to finish then I thought it would.

No desert island celebrity request? We have to get to the bottom of this.

Allow me to propose Gerard Butler. Not only is he dreamy, but you can grill steaks on his abs once you are done having your way with him.

I've thought this through.

Also, Vegas. At first I thought it odd that Kini would be into the city of sin, but then I realized that, being a nerd and all, she just really loves Star Trek: The Experience. Don't we all?
Your mom!

Um it might have been me.  I know I have killed a couple of my team members/360df friends with it on accident.  I had this awful tendency to kill my teammates in video games.  I either drop scoreboards on them, or drive them off cliffs in vehicles.

I'll keep Gerard Butler in mind the next time I get asked that question.  Oh and I prefer the term geek instead of nerd.   ;)   I do have to admit that I did go to the Star TreK: The Experience a few times while it was still open.

First part sounds like somethin I'd say.  Second part, well that's just blasphemy.
I like my women how I like my coffee: ground up and in the freezer.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50... but there's only a 10% chance of that.

I distinctly remember a scoreboard dropping and then ...well, things got blurry....blurry an red. Yeah, that one left a mark. I didn't get to play in the beta, (the scoreboard drop happened after the release) so I can't confirm that it was you, Kini, but I'll blame you anyway. ;)

I think it went something like this:

BTW - Fallout 3 & Boondock Saints = :D
