What's the story behind your Gamertag?
Nothing special unfortunately, really wanted to pick Captain Jaffa but it was gone so I just mashed up my name and “one shot one kill” in a moment of testosterone filled madness.

Where do you live?
Carrigaline, County Cork, Ireland

What do you do for a living?
Test Technician in a large multi national

What is the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?
I have changed nappies ( diapers) on an adult!!  Oddly, outside of this it was one of the best and most rewarding jobs I’ve had. And it was voluntary, unpaid work!!!

How long have you been playing videogames?
Going on 30 years now (yip, when I was a youngun’ we’d walk 30 miles to and from school, barefoot, in the snow ‘afore we could play them there video games)

What is the first videogame you ever played?
I don’t really remember what was first, probably Pacman or Space Invaders on one of the old flat top arcade machines in a pub. I actually have memories of playing Pong with the old twisty paddles too but it’s pretty vague.

How often do you play videogames?
As often as possible, unfortunately with three kids it’s nowhere near as much as I’d like.  I can squeeze in 10 or 12 hours a week on a good week, and none at all some times  :(

What hobbies do you enjoy besides videogames?
I read constantly. I play squash regularly. And over the last few months I’ve started getting into Crossfit.  If anybody has any notion of getting fit and healthy then I’d highly recommend it.  I mean it’s tough, vomit inducing tough but very addictive and worth every bit of effort.  These things all negatively affect my gaming time!!

What's your gaming setup like?
I’ve a 26” LCD with my Xbox 360 and PS3 attached to it. Another smaller LCD with the PS2 attached. I’ve the Black Ops Limited Edition headset.  Oh and there’s a Wii attached to another TV in the sitting room for the ‘kids’!!! Plus the Nintendo DS, PSP ( ‘kids’ again ) and of course my Windows Phone!!

What's your favorite multiplayer game?
I’m still relatively new to online multiplayer gaming, never played any of the PC games but for me it’s Gears Of War 3, hands down.

What's your favorite single player game?
Tough one, but thinking back over the years it’d probably be a tie between the first Tomb Raider and the first Command and Conquer on the PS One, due to how much time and effort went into playing them both.

What's your favorite downloadable/indie game?
Shinobi, mostly for nostalgic reasons. We spent a fair bit of time hanging out in the arcades growing up.

What future game are you most looking forward to?
I have about 6 games awaiting my attention as it is. But looking ahead I’d say Gears Of War: Judgment

What do you think is the best game of all time?
Gears Trilogy and Panama Joe ( ZX Spectrum )

What do you think is the best film of all time?
Soooo many movies!!  I dunno why but Donnie Darko.  That film just smacked me in the face when I saw it.
Also anything with bombs, fighting, guns, nudity and/or a good story!!

What do you think is the best album of all time?
Another tough one, between Songs for the Deaf by Queens of the Stone Age or Suicidal Tendencies self titled first album.
What's your funniest 360° Fahrenheit moment?
Hmm just about anything in the Random Video of the …. thread. Some classics in there.

What is your greatest gaming moment?
Why joining 360 DF of course!!

What's your favorite TV show that's currently running?
Probably Game Of Thrones, or Dexter, or True Blood, the list goes on. TV programming has really improved.

What's your favorite TV show that's no longer running?
MacGyver!!  Loved it! Had the hair and everything!!

If they made a movie about your life, who would play you?
A young Richard Dean Anderson, (reference last question)

What one celebrity would you like to be stranded on a desert island with?
Jessica Alba or Camille Leblanc-Bazinet (Youtube her, strong and hot!! )

What's your karaoke song?
I don’t sing, I’d love to be able to but its just not physically possible for me to sing in tune!! Having said that I once shouted YMCA as part of a group on holidays, the actions were my strong point!

What is the last book you read?
Reading Harry Potter at the moment, onto book 5. Also reading a James Patterson novel and a book about Irish soldiers in World War 1. They’re all strategically placed around the house, ie: toilets and bedroom!!!
What fictional character is most like you?
Johnny Bravo!!  He’s pretty cool! ;) haha

What superpower would you like to have?
Mind Control !!

If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be?
Usain Bolt – I’d love to know what it feels like to run that fast

What celebrity would be the worst roommate?
Take your pick!!  But especially Russell Crowe, guaranteed to end up in a fight!

Who's your favorite superhero?
The Punisher

Who's your favorite videogame character?
Marcus Fenix is as cool as they come!!

Who's your favorite actor?
Denzel Washington

Who's your favorite band/artist?
Queens of the Stone Age

What is your favorite movie quote?
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides….etc   Pulp Fiction

What's the worst food you've ever eaten?
Tried dog food once, not nice at all.

What do you predict will be the "next big thing" in gaming?
Beamed directly into the brain!!!!   

What is the most awesome place you have been?
Delivery room for the birth of each of my sons!!  ( New York City came a close second !)

Good man Don! Very good answers. Must discuss the 'What is the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?' answer, next time we meet. Didn't know about that one  :D

Spot on with the Gears answers!! and oh ya, Jessica Alba.

You don't stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing!!
