Why did you start blogging?

I had been thinking about starting a blog for a long time, every so often I would think of doing it again and for some reason I would let that feeling pass. Last year, I decided I would actually do it. I was having a period of being frustrated and feeling not great at much. I thought I would try writing and knew it had to be a gaming blog that I finally started. It was a way for me to get more involved in a community of gamers and maybe even broaden my gaming horizons. I have met such a wonderful community on here and it is a fantastic decision I made to finally start this blog.

What is your favourite party game?

Basically anything Mario like Mario Kart or Mario Party. They are such fun games and definitely games that people who don’t necessarily like games can get involved with. Though Overcooked and the Hasbro Family Fun type games are also up there. Though Overcooked is slightly more likely to cause arguments, although Mario Kart isn’t innocent in that regard especially if someone uses a blue shell right near the end.

If you were in the Winter Olympics, what would be your sport?

I used to snowboard so I would have to go with Snowboard Cross. Although the Figure Skating always looks so beautiful and graceful I would like to do that. Only issue is I have only been ice skating a few times and am not the most confident on the ice. Sadly that isn’t just limited to when I am skating, ice on pavements and me are not exactly compatible.

If you were in the Summer Olympics, what would be your sport?

Well going back to things I used to do… I used to do gymnastics, not like the vault, bars or beam but more like the floor exercises just not quite as put together as the gymnasts do. In fact no where near as put together as they do but it is still what I love watching. Though there is also tennis. I’d love to be good at tennis.

Who’s your favourite villain?

If we go video game villain I have to say I have a soft spot for Bowser, though he may not be a cut and dry villain as he certainly isn’t a simple villain case. Then there is the Joker or the Riddler in all the Batman games, they are built up as such good villains.

Zombies, Aliens or Mutants?

Depends on what we are talking about. It would be interesting to meet aliens to find out about their home planets and how they live and travel. Mutants it depends on if we are talking X-Men style mutants they would be cool to meet. If we are talking scary, monsters that have been created by a mad scientist then I have to pass. Zombies have too much of a liking for attacking and brains so again a pass on that one. Got to be X-Men style mutants.

In horde mode, who or what are you fighting?

Can I fight with cuddles or something? Like getting attacked by something cute, like puppies and kittens, and hold them off with cuddles.

Describe your perfect day.

I would like a lie in in the morning (simple pleasures haha), I’d like to spend time with Player 2 and just generally be chilled. Sure I could say I would want to spend time playing games or doing other hobbies but if I get to spend the time with the person I love then that will be a perfect day. Though if I spent that day with him somewhere hot and sunny I wouldn’t complain (anyone want to make that happen?).

What is your favorite video game genre to play?

I really like a mix of games so this is difficult. I think I would go with RPGs at the moment. Ask me again tomorrow and it will probably be something else!

If you could have a career in video games, what would you want to do?

I could say so many roles here that sound interesting. That said, I think it would be great fun working as like a community manager or someone who did PR for games. If you got to act somewhere where you could talk to the people that play the games as well as developers etc.

So I get to ask some questions:

1. What game have you played the most?

2. Where would you go on holiday if you had the chance (and money etc)?

3. Dogs or cats?

4. What is your favourite song?

5. What is your favourite season?

6. What is your favourite blog post of yours and why?

7. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

8. What is your all time favourite console?

9. If you could turn a video game into a (good) film, what game would you choose?

10. Do you ever buy collectors editions for games and, if so, what is your favourite that you own?

11. If you could work at one game company, what company would it be?

So I am really running out of bloggers to nominate now, after my three previous posts (1, 2, 3), one more nomination to respond to and everyone getting nominated for these recently. These are my nominees (less than the 11 requested), though do not feel that you have to do anything if you don’t want to especially if you have had these before.

Insert Memory Card partially so I can highlight this post on snow levels as it seems appropriate for recent times.

Athena at AmbiGaming as she is always insightful on a range of topics.

The Keeper at The Codex: Online as there are plans for the blog and the highlighting of community events is wonderful.

Strange Girl Gaming for posts such as this on something which I would be very interested in.
