Gamer Corner: Jay

Hey Everyone, 

Welcome to this week's installment of Gamer Corner, where Fangirl Reviews interviews a gamer and gets his thoughts on the gaming world and learn what he is enjoying at the moment.

1. Tell me a little bit about yourself? 

Well I am 33, been a gamer since about 1988. My first system was a Super NES, from there upgraded to the N64, then to Sega Dreamcast, then the Gamecube, then PS2, then Xbox, then the DS, then Wii, then Xbox 360, then PS3, then 3DS, and finally Wii U. Avid lover of all things tech related, game related, cartoon related, anime related, and martial arts related. Oh and my comedic timing is on point.

2. What rig do you currently game on? 

This week, well let’s see primarily on the WiiU and Dreamcast. Although I do game on the 3DS during conference calls at work. :-)

3. What game are you currently playing right now? 

Wonderful 101 and Legend of Zelda the Wind Waker.

4. Do you enjoy that game, why? How’s the overall game play? 

The Wonderful 101 I am enjoying a lot. I am a fan of Platinum Studios they make some of the best action games in the gaming industry. The gameplay is fast paced, the puzzles are varied and make good use of the gamepad, and the story is good. 
Since I am a Zelda fan I am also back in Hyrule sailing the sea and beating down anything Ganon can throw at me.

5. Would you recommend it?

I recommend both as they are great additions to the WiiU library.

6. Are there any games coming out that you are looking forward to? 

There are too many to name so I’ll just stick to three that are coming out in 2013, Sonic Lost World, Assassin’s Creed 4, and WatchDogs.

7. What kind of gamer do you classify yourself to be? ie. PC, Console, Tabletop, LARP as well as Hardcore, RPG, etc.

I actually classify myself as a true gamer. I will play anybody in chess as well as Smash Bros. I just like to game.

8. So with the new consoles coming out, which way are you leaning One or 4?

I am not a big fan of Kinect so I am leaning toward the Playstation 4 but I won’t be getting it at launch. I still have nightmares about the PS3 launch and my HDMI cord at the time.

9. Favorite Game (can include tabletop) of all time and why? 

Favorite game of all time is The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. Need I say more.

10. Would you like to share your gamer tag and the system so others may add you? 

Sure below you will find the following.

WiiU: Achilles32

PSN: Kensei30

3DS: 5370-0727-0406
