Gamer Corner: Alexander

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

Tell me a little bit about yourself?

Born in Seattle, raised in Belize and now I live in Austin.. PlayStation for eva’, but I love emulation...stuck on retro MEGA MAN FOR LIFE!!!

What rig do you currently game on?

PS3 right now, but due to disc drive problems, I'm on emulations for the time being.

What game are you currently playing right now? 

On the PS3 Metal Gear Rising...then its Metal Gear3 and Metal Gear Peace Walker...I want to beat them before I jam the MG V.

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

It’s pretty fast but the overall game play is fantastic, I hope they continue with this series

Would you recommend it?

To any and all Metal Gear fans, I would serious consider at least trying this installment to Metal Gear franchise

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

I've been waiting on a new Mega Man “I'm tired of holding my breath” so Mighty No. 9 it is and Metal Gear V

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

Console gaming pretty much, I prefer RPG over Shooters

So with the new consoles coming out, which way are you leaning One or 4? (Ignore if you are a PC gamer)

I've never had an reason why(not knockin’ it) just always had a PlayStation

What are your thoughts on the gaming industry?

Just like everything else, industries are putting quantity over quality...I remember playing the original Zelda Wind Waker in grade school. It blew my mind how they got such 2D graphics on that little screen.(I always stole my items from that shop, he ends up calling you thief). Nowadays gamers get little time to enjoy the games they got. Very few games tend to replayed after been beaten.

If you had the power, what direction would you have the gaming industry go?

Control the flow rate that games get released into public...gamers need to enjoy the games they got before upgrading them

10 years from now, where do you see the industry? Are you happy with that direction?

I'm not a big online gamer but I love the concept of playing with fellow gamers worldwide. I think Sony got it with the integration of mobile games…I would love to see more of mobile/console relationships in the future

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

This is by far the hardest question…(I will let down many Zelda fans) Mega Man X. because of the storyline behind it…how it expanded the limits and boundaries of the Blue Bomber and the people around him…I hope the creator reads this…your work ain’t done by long shot! 

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

professorink1 for anyone who wants to play me in Marvel vs Capcom3, in the polite words of Jet Li “If there any other challengers bring them up!”
