Gamer Corner: Ash

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

Tell me a little bit about yourself? What rig do you currently game on? What kind of gamer do you classify yourself to be? ie. PC, Console, Tabletop, LARP as well as Hardcore, RPG, etc.

Well, I’m a twenty-three year old girl-gamer from Dublin, Ireland! I’ve been gaming since I was a little kid. Currently I’m gaming on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, but I dabble with the PC and Playstation 3! I’m definitely a competitive gamer, I like to win! But I like gaming for fun and uploading it to YouTube too!

What is your first memory of gaming?

First memory of gaming is from Christmas 1997 when my parents bought me a Nintendo 64 and a Gameboy pocket. I was addicted to gaming from then on.

What game are you currently playing right now? Do you enjoy that game, why? How’s the overall game play and graphics?

At the moment I’m splitting my time between Assassin’s Creed 4 and Ryse: Son of Rome on the Xbox One. Both games are brilliant, and in particular AC4 is hard to put down and stop playing! The graphics for both games are really good. The gameplay for AC4 beats Ryse hands down.

Would you recommend it, why?
I’d recommend both games to anybody who loves action. Both games are jam-packed with fighting and different challenges. They’re so much fun to play.

Are there any games coming out that you are looking forward to?
I’m very anxiously waiting for Watch Dogs to come out! The game looks incredible. Of course, as a massive Assassin’s Creed fan-girl, I’m really excited for Assassin’s Creed Unity to come out! 

If you could design your own game what would it be like?

It would be a weird mix of Titanfall, Battlefield, and Assassin’s Creed! Full of action, multiplayer, and fantastic graphics! My brother is actually doing video game design stuff in college, so maybe he’ll make it for me one day!

Thoughts on this new generation of consoles – Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One?

Having an Xbox One, I can say that I love the new generation. I’ve played a little PS4 and found it great too. I think there was a lot of bad talk surrounding the Xbox One before it came out, but I’ve had it for a couple months now, and I’ve nothing bad to say. I love that they’re starting to integrate all forms of media into the one console. The speed, graphics, and usability of the new gen consoles is amazing. I think the new gen is a great platform for even newer generations in the future, developers are definitely on the right track.

What are your thoughts on the gaming industry?

I think at the moment the gaming industry is going good, I’ve no complaints anyway!

10 years from now, where do you see the industry? Are you happy with that direction? If you had the power, what direction would you have the gaming industry go?
Honestly, I think the gaming industry is just going from strength to strength. In ten years time it’s going to be even better. I think they’re definitely on the right track in terms of the consoles that are being brought out, and the games. If there’s any direction I’d push the gaming industry in, it would just to try and making gaming even more accessible to everyone. Consoles and games are crazy expensive, and the competition between PS and Xbox I find to be a little lame. It would be cool if they could eventually make it so that PS users and Xbox users could play against each other!

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

My favourite game is technically three games! The Assassin’s Creed 2 trilogy are my all time favourite games. The graphics, the storyline, the characters, and the challenges are amazing. If it isn’t clear already, I’m a hardcore Assassin’s Creed fangirl, but the AC2 games are my all time favourite!

Additional Thoughts and Comments?

Nothing about the gaming industry, but I would like to say thank you for interviewing me on your blog. It’s awesome, and keep up the great work!

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

My gamertag is Asho90 on Xbox One and Xbox 360. If anybody isn’t on Xbox but still wants to add me, I’m on Twitch which is ash_hole90 and my Youtube for gameplay is Geekygamergirl2013
