As the title suggests, I was tagged again. I wouldn't do it again so quickly but I was tagged twice, and I do just love answering questions. I don't think I'll post any more random facts, or post any questions, and might just answer questions. That really was all I did it for. I wrote this like a week ago and between then and now I've been tagged a lot more times. I didn't want to make such an incredibly long post, so there's more on what I plan to do about that at the end of this post. So let's go for it, right?
I was tagged by Cricketfreak from Bhadrawr first and here are her questions.
1. Do you think the zodiac you were born under has an impact on your life?
Yes and no. I do put a bit of stock into horoscopes and such, but I'm not totally fitting in with my sign. But for something that encompasses so many people, I don't think a sign or a horoscope will ever totally apply to everyone who falls under it.
2. What is your favourite type of movie?
Comedies. I love a good laugh.
3. What type personality are you?
INFP: "Questor". Idealistic, self-sacrificing, and somewhat cool or reserved. They are very family and home oriented, and have a high capacity for caring. High sense of honor derived from internal values. 1% of the total population. - FUCK YEAH
4. What effect has blogging had on you?
Pretty positive. As long as I remember people really do like what I write. It has shown me a side of myself I've never seen in a writer. It's also given me some good friends, and allowed me to do some things I've wanted. So a pretty boss effect.
5. Do you care about politics?
In some aspects. I try to keep up with politics and what really goes the fuck wrong. I try to spread information and awareness, and I think people should never descend to political apathy. The less you react and fight the more they screw you over.
6. What do you think the world will be like in twenty years?
I'm not sure if I don't want the world to end in 2012 yet. It has the potential to be a great world, and it has the potential to be an awful world. Then again I guess if things do go wrong, and there's oppression and censorship everywhere, then in 20 years time it could be gone. I'd like to think we have some more cool tech though.
7. Where did you/do you hope to go to university?
I've never really considered it. I think I'm going to have to do the Open University though, which is an online uni where you work from home. Jessie plans to do it too and we always wanted to go to college and or uni together.
8. Favourite flavour ice-cream?
Mint chocolate chip. Though if we count expensive/fancypants ice cream then Ben and Jerry's brownie ice cream but I've forgotten it's full name.
9. Favourite subject at school?
ICT. Though I learned in college that as much as I am interested in computers, that interest didn't stretch into really wanting to know about them. But it was one of the only ones I liked. I enjoyed science too.
10. One thing that always ticks you off.
Kids. Bastarding kids. I sometimes don't believe myself when I tell myself my kids will turn out fine.
11. Do you play the Sims?
I play the Sims 3 but I haven't played it for a while, and I loved playing Sims 2 on my Xbawx. I don't know why but I always loved the direct control feature. I also lost many hours to Sims 1 when I was younger. Though I never had any addons. I have a fair few mods for Sims 3 though, mostly clothing.
The other set of questions were by R.gers from Crazy Old Heroes, and they're video game related, which was the reason I wanted to do it. I'll take any excuse to write about games. So here we go again!
First video game you ever played?
The first game I have memory of playing is Super Mario 3 on the NES. This may or may not be the first game I ever played.
Favorite game console (Wii, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, NES, so on so forth)?
Ahhhhh fuck I don't know on this one. I think because of what it did and what it was, the Dreamcast. I don't have many games for it but it was so far ahead of it's time. It had online activity years before anyone else did, and amazeballs graphics. I still mourn that it died before it's time.
Favorite video game?
Again, I'm not even sure I can do this D: I think I'm going to have to go with Final Fantasy 9. I lost a whole summer to this game. Most kids go out and play during their summer breaks. Fuck that.
Who do you think is the greatest character ever conceived in video games?
The greatest character? Balls. Hmmmm. Maybe Raziel from the Legacy Of Kain games. I really love that guy. I don't think I could ever pick just one, but I'm going to say him just to say someone.
Who is the greatest villain?
It has to be Sephiroth doesn't it? FF7 might not be my favourite (even though it's partly to do with not wanting to conform ha) but there's no denying he was excellent.
Best weapon in your opinion (can be any game)?
Dang nabbit stop with the hard questions. The Soul Reaver, from Soul Reaver. It has a great design and you can't go wrong with a weapon that absorbs the souls of your fallen enemies!
Biggest pet peeves in games?
When everything is the same as everything and when it all becomes repetitive. Every game has a point where it becomes repetitive and you're doing the same thing. It's something I accept in games but it's a sign of a good game when it gets to that point and you keep going. Oh and when a game rehashes things or includes extra length unnecessarily. A recent example is Skyward Sword. I love that game, but there were very few areas and you went to them twice (so far, uncompleted) and some of it just seems wholly unnecessary. Oh well.
Your greatest gaming moment ever?
...God damn it....Hmmm. All my killing sprees on the Fable games. It also feels pretty good when I finish a game given how few games I actually get around to completing. When I installed the mod to turn Shadowmere in Skyrim into Fluttershy from My Little Pony felt pretty damn good too. If we're talking favourite storyline moments and such, then I think there might be too many to pick.
If you were a character from any game, what would you do?
Arthas/The Lich King from Warcraft. I'd raise me an army of the dead and rape the fuck out of everything. I wouldn't take years to do it and be stopped by a small group either. Or Balthier from FFXII. Just because Sky Pirate.
If given enough time and resources. What would be your life goal?
Bleh. No idea. I should probably have one by now, but I'm constantly finding different things I'm better at than I thought, and finding things I'm not as good at as I though. Though I wouldn't mind living in a castle with a huge collection of medieval and before weaponry. I'm an old fashioned kind of guy.
Do think this it the eleventh question?
It's the last one at least.
This whole thing has been long enough so I won't bother asking any questions. Though I will say, R.ger, if you're reading, answer the questions you set me yourself! NOW YOU KNOW HOW IT FEELS!
Between writing this and it actually going up, I was tagged several other times too. Rather than make a long ass post, I decided to do a Q&A podcast of it. Like with the vlog. So if you've seen me tagged, or you tagged me, and I haven't responded to it yet, then please let me know! I had tabs open with the pages, but that was the old laptop. So far I have Tasha's questions ready, and Dylanthulu's and Kb's. Tay if you read this I'm sorry I did yours in the comments and not in a podcast BUT you never specifically tagged me. So there.
