I’ve seen a lot of posts from the bloggers I follow about the Liebster award thing. I guess it has been around for a while, but I’ve only recently started a proper blog. It seems like a neat way to promote blogs in the community, and I’ve actually discovered a few interesting ones from these posts.
Thanks to Particlebit, I’ve been nominated to make Liebster Award post. The rules seem easy enough to follow. Answer the questions I was asked, and then continue the chain by asking other people questions. Here are my answers:
Favorite video game console?
Nintendo 64. 5 year old me started gaming on the SNES, but the N64 is responsible for getting me hooked on gaming. Diddy Kong Racing was the first 3D game I ever played. Banjo Kazooie and The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time still top my list of all time favourite games.
Favorite game on LEAST favorite console?
Grand Theft Auto V on my Xbox 360. Now I’d like to say I love all my consoles equally, but I just don’t have enough time to pay attention to them all. My poor little Xbox 360 is my biggest dust collector, unfortunately. The last game I fully enjoyed playing on it was GTA V. I’ll always remember the twisted tales of Trevor, Michael, and Franklin.
What was the last movie you saw in theaters?
Seven Psychopaths. Not a big movie goer and that was the last time I got dragged out to a movie theater. Not sure how many years ago that was…
Who is your favorite Pokemon?
Charmander. He’s simply adorable, and he eventually evolves into the badass Charizard. I’ve spent many hours playing Pokemon Red and Blue on the Game Boy. I stopped following the series after the first 250-ish (Pokemon Gold and Silver). I think there are over 700 of them now… Way too many for me to follow, but Pokemon Sun and Moon are looking interesting.
Why did you start blogging?
I guess it’s because I enjoy writing. I find it quite relaxing blogging about my random thoughts on my favourite hobby. It has also helped me find more blogs out there from people with similar interests.
How long have you been blogging?
On WordPress, since Sept.2015. The teenage me had a little random user blog on a well known gaming site many moons ago.
How big is your gaming backlog at the moment?
109 and still racking up exponentially. Despite my best efforts, I just can’t resist the temptation to buy them when they are on sale, or a really interesting title comes out. So many games, so little time!
What are you doing when aren’t playing a game or working?
Believe it or not, I really enjoy exercising. I walk a lot, lift weights, and spend 6 hours a week in a martial arts class (Combat Hapkido). Kind of lame I know, but I’ve always secretly aspired to be just like the kickass female characters I admire. To name a few: Samus from the Metroid series, Lightning from FFXIII, Jade from Beyond Good and Evil, Jill Valentine from Resident Evil, Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening, and most recently Faith from Mirror’s Edge.
What is one interesting, unique fact about yourself most people don’t know?
Tough question and this isn’t really interesting or unique, but I’m a rapid coffee addict. I’ve limited myself to only consuming the invigorating beverage a few times a week. I’ve discovered that the sleep thing is important.
Eat pizza with your hands or with a fork?
Hands. A fork just slows things down.
