Gamer Corner: Sarah: Trisarahtopsx

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:

I'm a twenty-four year old Batman addicted girl from Hawaii. I work at Nocturna Lounge--the coolest bar in the universe (we have alcohol, Xbox 360s, PS3s, Xbox Ones, PS4s, computers, and karaoke). I have an adorable cat named Sushi and i'm pretty odd, haha!

What do you currently play on:

Currently playing on the Xbox One & PS4...mostly Xbox one since Titanfall just got released (sorry Sony users but you are missing out!!).

What kind of gamer do you consider yourself as? hardcore, handheld, larp, pc, console, etc:

I would consider myself a fan of shooters. I love Call of Duty, Gears of War, and now I'm addicted to Titanfall...but, I do play other games like the Arkham series, Castlevania, and most recently had a blast playing South Park: Stick of Truth.

What is your first memory of gaming?

I remember playing mega-man a lot with my neighbors when I was younger, but the first memory I have that really got me into hardcore gaming was playing Syphon Filter with my cousin (who is now a designer for Infinity Ward). That game got me into shooters, and from there I got addicted.

What game are you currently playing? Are you enjoying it, how is the overall gameplay and graphics?
Everyone will probably be sick of hearing me blab about Titanfall, but it is seriously a game that has blown all of my expectations. It's innovative, a completely new concept, the graphics are clean, and gameplay is smooth. It's taken first person shooters to a whole new level!!
Would you recommend it? Why?
Of course I would recommend it! It's a fast paced game with little to zero campers (thank god)!! Even if you aren't good at shooters, the parkouring alone is fun to do, you start to feel like a superhero or something! it's a crazy awesome game!
Are there any games that you are looking forward to?
I was curious about Destiny, although from this point on, I will compare shooters to Titanfall--that game has really set the bar...I'm also anxiously waiting for The Watch, Tom Clancy's the Division, Batman Arkham Knight, The Order: 1886, Sunset Overdrive, and hoping with all my heart that they finish Kingdom Hearts 3 soon.

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

It would probably be an FPS of course, open world maybe with a storyline but preferably violent, so that when you shoot someone it's intensely bloody or you throw a frag and it blows up enemy legs (imagine gears of war when you kill enemy locusts and you can beat them with their own body parts), haha! I know, I seem insane. I promise I'm not (; lol!!

Thoughts on this generation's consoles: PS4, Xbox One, Wii U:
As much as I love being able to command my Xbox One and tell it what to do without using my controller, I really wish developers made both X1 and PS4 backwards compatible. I mean, I think with all the technology we have, it should be possible...if the Wii U can, why can't they? On the plus side, the graphics are gorgeous and I love the built-in game capture so I can share epic gaming moments online (:

What are your thoughts on the gaming industry?

When I look back to when I was little, playing characters with generic pixely faces, and I look at say Grand Theft Auto V...I am just in complete awe and hats go off to everyone who work in the industry who are constantly thriving to make better, beautiful games. You guys are truly amazing geniuses, and I am grateful for the long hauling hours you put in.

10 years from now, where do you see the industry? Are you happy with the direction? If you had the power, where would you have the industry go?

I am very happy with the direction developers are going, games seem to only be getting better and better. If I had the power though, I would go in the direction of Sony and create a GIGANTIC stream of old titles available to download so I can reminisce on playing classic games that I enjoyed when i was younger...and these games would be affordable.

What is your favorite game of all time?

This one is difficult...I would have to say the Call of Duty series only because I invested the most time into them and because while playing online, I have truly met some of my best friends. Other favorite game titles would be GTAV, Gears of War 1 and 3, Arkham City, and newly added to the list Titanfall (;
