By now we all know DuckiDeva and her many articles regarding gaming, sex and.. sex. But who is the man behind the woman? What makes him tick and why is it Deva puts up with him? Perhaps our little profile will shed some light.
He doesn't look like he's much help around the house. Read on for the profile!
Who the devil are you?
"He's just zis guy, you know?" Just a Gamer, though no longer WithJob. Oh, and I'm pretty opinionated, in case noone noticed.
What are you supposed to be doing during the day when you're reading GWJ?
Probably looking for a job. And playing with the Ducki Prince. When you're not working or gaming, what do you do with your time? Mostly just hangin' out. Going to the park, reading Dr. Seuss, watching Blue's Clues or Finding Nemo.
How about family? Do you have any kids?
Lovely Gamer Wife, adorable Gamer Kid that likes to make my Troll Shaman go "Boing!Boing!" and taking the "cat. bird. fly" flights in World of Warcraft. Did I mention that my wife likes to game, too? Nyah-nyah!
What was your favorite game over the last year or so? Why?
Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising, by a long shot. Nothing else even came close. I found GWJ around the same time the JO Demo came out and was able to trick... er, convince enough GWJers to buy the game and it's become something of an institution. I worry that WoW and EQ2 may siphon off a lot of the regulars, but it's had one hell of a run, and even if I'm the only one left, I can still have fun on the public servers tracking down the spawnsnipers. Shankshankshank!
Which game are you looking forward to most?
Well, World of Warcraft is the current obsession here, so I look forward to it the most in the sense of "I can't wait till the little one goes to bed so I can play." I look forward to Vampire Bloodlines the most because I know I'm getting it for my birthday in a week and who doesn't like being a vampire? Last, I look forward to the Call of Cthuulu game, due out in the next few months, simply because it looks like it'll be original in gameplay and faithful in content.
What is your fondest gaming memory?
Ah, I started young, so there are so many. Back before broadband, I was indoctrinated with things like Castle Wolfenstein, Wizardry, Raster Blaster, and Lemonade Stand on the Apple ][+ and Elite and Bard's Tale on the C64. To pick just 2 great memories, I'd have to go with 1)beating my dad at Intellivision Baseball as well as Football with scores that resembled basketball scores and 2)getting a triple lindy on Reaper81 recently with a Shank, a Claymore, and a Sniping all within about 10 minutes. Thanks Reaper.
Finally, why do you play games at all? Why haven't you outgrown them?
I think games are an integral part of being human. Everyone plays games of one sort, my poison just happens to be computer games. Someone here has that quote about growing old because we quit playing, and I think it's true. Or maybe it's just because they're fun.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our hard hitting questions! Any last words?
Defenestration, serendipity, onomatopoeia, discombobulate, plethora, callipygian, juxtapose, persnickety, kerfuffle, flibbertigibbet, shank.
