Lukehi
« on: November 02, 2012, 11:10:54 AM »

What's the story behind your Gamertag?
I'm lazy and when I created it I had no real idea what it was for!Where do you live? Got a house in Cardiff but have joined the Northern contingent and moved to Lytham St. Annes for 6 months on a work assignment.

What do you do for a living? 
Operations Manager for Johnson & Johnson
 
What is the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?
I used to get paid by my Nan not to do a paper-round…that’s pretty weird!
 
How long have you been playing videogames?
Started back in the 80’s so about 25 years.
 
What is the first videogame you ever played?
Probably something like ‘Nifty Lifty’ on the ZX Spectrum.
 
How often do you play videogames? 
Not so much this year, personal issues and work have got in the way.  Hopefully now the weather has turned I can spend more time.  Reckon this time last year I was putting in +30hrs a week.
 
What hobbies do you enjoy besides videogames?
Nothing unusual:  sports, music, movies, generally socializing with friends.
 
What's your gaming setup like?
Errr…got my xbox, a TV and a sofa…what more do you need?
 
What's your favorite multiplayer game? 
COD4 was immense on the multiplayer front, before that it was mostly sports games that I played online.  Good old Killer Instinct was great too.
 
What's your favorite single player game? 
Tough call, Bioware/Bethesda knock out some corkers but I'll go for Lost Odyssey.
 
What's your favorite downloadable/indie game? 
XBLA is probably Limbo and I'll go for Decay on the indie front.
 
What future game are you most looking forward to? 
No idea, so far out of the loop it's untrue.  Gears of War 4!
 
What do you think is the best game of all time? 
Hate these questions, far too many to list, that goes for films/music too...I'll say Goldeye, just to get so kudos with GM.
 
What do you think is the best film of all time? 
Goodfellas
 
What do you think is the best album of all time? 
Not really a favourite anymore but Surfer Rosa by Pixies was the album that dragged me out of my childhood and into my grunge filled teens.
 
What's your funniest 360° Fahrenheit moment? 
Far too many, earliest was when I first joined and TJ didn't believe I'd never played GoW before as I repeatedly kicked her ass.  The games of COD4 were also very memorable.
 
What is your greatest gaming moment? 
I once had a unbeaten run of 16 wins on Street Fighter II arcade machine in my local Fish & Chip shop!
 
What's your favorite TV show that's currently running? 
I don't really keep up with what's on.  Am currently working way through True Blood (am on season 2) which is good and I loved Mad Men.
 
What's your favorite TV show that's no longer running? 
Quantum Leap (although it's probably on a channel somewhere) or Manimal (truly awesome) or Dungeons & Dragons (proper kids TV).
 
If they made a movie about your life, who would play you? 
Ryan Gosling…he’s so dreamy!
 
What one celebrity would you like to be stranded on a desert island with? 
Bear Grylls or Ray Mears
 
What's your karaoke song? 
Toss-up between ‘Uptown Girl’ and ‘Take on Me’…I can't hold a tune to save my life though.
 
What is the last book you read?
The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett.  Classic detective novel but like most things I've got a stack of books to get through.
 
What fictional character is most like you? 
Really have no idea…Michelangelo from ‘Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles’
 
What superpower would you like to have? 
Easy one…Teleportation, I hate the process of travelling somewhere.  Roads, airports, idiots on trains/buses…there’s always something!
 
If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be? 
Not sure exactly but someone with a form of creative talent.  I'm a scientist so would love to be able to, paint a picture that didn't look like it'd been drawn by a 5 year old.
 
What celebrity would be the worst roommate? 
Marilyn Manson?
 
Who's your favorite superhero? 
Aquaman…not really.  Always had an affinity for Gambit in the old X-Men cartoons.
 
Who's your favorite videogame character? 
Earthworm Jim
 
Who's your favorite actor? 
Gordon Joseph-Levitt is finally getting the credit he deserves, great actor.
 
Who's your favorite band/artist? 
Currently still Sleigh Bells/Crystal Castles but of last 15 years probably the Foo Fighters.
 
What is your favorite movie quote? 
Again too many to list but I'll keep it simple, You're gonna need a bigger boat” from Jaws.
 
What's the worst food you've ever eaten? 
I had a beetroot tea whilst in Poland a few months ago, that was pretty bad.  I like salt as much as the next bloke but it was taking it too far!
 
What do you predict will be the "next big thing" in gaming? 
It's not really my sort of thing but if someone nails a console MMO then there's a huge amount of money to be made.
 
What is the most awesome place you have been? 
New York City, I know Elle slags it off but I loved it and would happily move there given half a chance.
 
What is the most awesome place you haven't been yet? 
Almalfi Coast in Southern Italy is absolutely stunning.  Hire a boat and sail along the coast…perfect.
 
Final thoughts? 
Thanks to all the various admin guys that keep (and have kept) this community going.  I've been around these parts for ~5 years now and not possible without them.

I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.
