[Rambo in Fast Times]

SG Gamer of the Week this week is Rambo. She is a retro gamer that loves a lot of the classics. I sat down with Rambo to talk about some of her favorite and least favorite video games. She also shares her plans for a video game-related tattoo. Can’t go wrong with Final Fantasy VII!

What is the story behind your SuicideGirls nickname? It reminds me of the movies…

The story behind my SG name is just that Rambo is a complete badass, and so am I ;)

When did you first get into playing video games?

I started playing video games around the age of four. I grew up with two brothers and a dad who all loved video games so they’ve been a huge part of my life for pretty much as long as I can remember.

What are some of your favorite games?

Some of my favorite games are Final Fantasy 7, 8, and 9 for PS1, Donkey Kong Country for SNES, Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past for SNES, Mario Kart 64, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for N64, and Kirby’s Epic Yarn for Nintendo Wii.

Ah so you are more of a retro gamer. What would you say is your favorite system?

Definitely a retro gamer! My favorite system is a toss up between PS1 and N64.

I noticed you didn’t mention Majora’s Mask. Did you not like that game?

I actually haven’t played Majora’s Mask!

Recommend a PS1 or N64 game that many people don’t know about but is amazing.

Well, I think Rogue Trip for PS1 is totally underrated. Such a fun game!

What is the worst game you’ve ever played?

Haha, ummm probably ClayFighter for N64.

What are you currently playing?
I’m currently playing Kirby’s Epic Yarn and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for Wii.

Tell me about your tattoos. How many do you have, where, and what?

I have a bunch of tattoos. Not sure how many exactly, somewhere near 15 I think? I’ve got roses for my mom and brother, “Patience is a Virtue” on my tummy, the Creation of Man hands on my back, matryoshka dolls on my arm for my aunt, and lots more.

Would you ever consider getting a video game-related tattoo?

I will absolutely get a video game-related tattoo! I’m planning to get Rupees, and brainstorming a FF7 tattoo as well.

If Guardian Forces were real, which one would you junction?

Bahamut! Although Shiva and Ifrit will always hold a special place in my heart.

Cloud vs Squall vs Zidane. Who wins?

Cloud, without a shadow of a doubt!

What is the longest you’ve ever gamed without stopping?

I think the longest I’ve ever gamed without stopping is something like 12 hours (when I was much younger and had that kind of free time on my hands, haha).

Aside from video games, what are some other things you like to do for fun?

I love anything creative. I do a lot of photography, sewing, paper crafts, crocheting, and cooking.

SG Gamer Of The Week: Jeckyl Suicide

by Alex Hinkley

This week’s SG Gamer of the Week is Jeckyl. She is a hardcore girl that has a not-so-secret nerdy side to her. Jeckyl loves Star Wars and owning face in Call of Duty. I talked to her about some of her favorite games and what she thinks of Disney taking over the Star Wars franchise.

So tell me about your SG nickname, Jeckyl. The first thing that comes to mind is Doctor Jeckyl…

Yeah that’s exactly where the name comes from. My Suicide Girls persona is sort of like my alter ego, like a Jekyll and Hyde thing. I like to think that Jeckyl is the opposite of me and that, as Jeckyl, I get to act out all the things I’d be too shy to do as myself.

What are some of your favorite games of all-time?

Alice: Madness Returns, Super Mario Brothers, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

What about favorite current games?

Black Ops 2, Assassins Creed 3, and FIFA 13.

So I take it you are a soccer fan? Do you like any other sports?

I am yes. Soccer players are very nice to look at. =P Occasionally I’ll watch rugby or hockey, but I’m really more into roller derby. It’s my favorite sport!

PS3 or Xbox 360?

PS3.

Are you into online gaming or are you more of a campaign type girl?

Online. I like to kick ass.

I’m sure all the Black Ops 2 players reading this will want to know, what’s your k/d?

1.75. I’ve been thinking of getting it tattooed on my arm as a testament to my awesomeness.

Your profile says you live in South Africa. Tell me about what it’s like living there from a gaming perspective. Do video games cost more there? Does the internet suck?

The internet is a real pain here. It went down about three times today already. I don’t think games are more expensive but some games we don’t have yet so we have to order from overseas and shipping can get pretty pricey. Gaming seems to be growing here though, we even have an annual gaming convention called Rage where we get to play and sample all the latest stuff, it’s really rad.

You mentioned Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was one of your all-time faves, does this mean you are a huge Star Wars fan in general?

I am, yes, a closet fan though. Being a nerd kinda contradicts my hardcore alternative image. But Star Wars is a classic, and I’m a sucker for the classics. Also Hayden Christensen is a dish.

Of course you know what I have to ask next. Favorite Star Wars movie?

I really liked The Clone Wars but with some reservations. The Clone Wars animated series was surprisingly good, too. Much better than the movie. Yoda was pretty kick ass.

How do you feel about Disney acquiring Star Wars?

I’m actually kind of excited to see what Disney does with it. I really lost faith in Lucas Films after a few glitches they passed off as movies these last few years. I think it’s a really awesome way to introduce Star Wars to a newer generation that grew up without it. And really nothing beats Star Wars on the big screen so I’m definitely looking forward to next movies!

If you could make your own video game, what would you make?

Probably a cross between Black Ops 2 and Assassin’s Creed 3. It would be really cool to combine the storyline and killing styles in Assassin’s Creed with the machinery from Black Ops. People’s minds would melt from awesome overload.

SuicideGirls Gamer Of The Week: Toxic Suicide  

Posted In All Things SG,Blog,Entertainment,Gaming,Geek,Internuts

by Alexander Hinkley


[Toxic Suicide in Wicker Wonderland]

This week’s SuicideGirl Gamer of the Week is Toxic. Toxic loves nerds. Probably because she is one. She’s into Transformers and role-playing games, especially Final Fantasy. I spoke to her about some of her favorites and whether or not she would support a FFVII remake.

Toxic seems like an odd nickname for such a pretty girl. What made you choose it?

Honestly, Toxic wasn’t my original choice. I had a different name picked out that was totally girlie but it didn’t roll off the tongue like “Toxic Suicide” does. Toxic suits me though in more ways than one. Get to know me and you will see why!

Judging from the fact you have “Decepticon” tattooed across your ribs, I take it you are a fan of Transformers?

Don’t let my hot girl disguise fool you. I am just lying low until our leader Megatron collects enough energon cubes here on Earth. With the energy we acquire we can finally reconquer Cybertron and take down the autobots.

When did you get that tattoo anyway?

Wade Davidson at Raven Ink Tattoo tattooed “Decepticon” on my ribs the summer of 2011. I debated getting this tattoo for a long time. Originally I did not want a lot of tattoos…Wow has that changed! Being a Transformers fan since childhood, I can’t imagine not having a tribute to Saturday mornings of watching G1. I cannot believe I didn’t get it sooner. My tattoo always gets me attention from my favorite people to converse with NERDS! Fellow nerds like me! GOODNESS DO I LOVE NERDS!

Tell me about your other tattoos.

Where to start? We can start with my first tattoo. I have “Your Name” tattooed in a heart on my right butt check. Originally I wanted something small that could be easily covered. My heart was done by an artist named Steve O in Susanville, CA.

I have two full sleeves. Both of my sleeves are being done by Jason Iffert at Raven Ink Tattoo in Portland, OR. My right arm is a floral sleeve. It features many of my favorite flowers including a tiger lily and a sunflower. I also have a pinup witch of my mother on my right arm. The pin up is a contribution by Wade Davidson. My left arm is a sleeve of Dr. Seuss characters. All the characters from all my favorite books. There are two small pieces on my left wrist not part of the Seuss theme. I have a matching friendship tattoo on my inner left wrist with my BFF Britney. I also have a “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” piece done by artist John MacDonell.

On the back of my neck I have an owl I named “Dexter” by artist Tomma Mueller. I love Dexter– he has the body of a strawberry! Below that is my full back piece being done by Sharkbait Struckman at Mr. Tattoo in Milwaukie, OR. My full back piece is of the tree of knowledge with owls. This piece is my newest and I love how it is turning out so far. He is such an awesome artist!

Favorite transformer?

My favorite transformer is a hard subject because it’s so close between two: #1 is, and always will be, Megatron. Megatron is a ruthless leader who shows no mercy. #2 is Soundwave, not only because he talks in a cool robotic voice, but he has a cassette deck in his chest that popped out more Decepticons (Like Ravage and Laserbeak). Sooooo rad!

What are some of your favorite video games?

I am a sucker for the classics, especially RPGs, they are by far my favorite to play. My favorite game of all time has to be Final Fantasy VII on PS1, though. The storyline, characters, and summons, I can spend all day running around getting into battles to work up my materia and limit breaks. A close second favorite has to be Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for Super NES. Best Zelda game ever hands down! I used to spend hours playing this game with my dad as a kid. When I finally beat it by myself it was a moment to remember… I mean I had the Triforce in my little Link hands!

Other games I really enjoy playing Final Fantasy VIII (PS1), Donkey Kong Country 1-3 (Super NES), Kingdom Hearts (PS2), Street Fighter II (Super NES), Mortal Kombat (I play it in the arcade), Eternal Champions (Sega), Tomb Raider (PS1), Legend of Legia (PS1), Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega), Tetris (NES), Duckhunt (NES), and of course Super Mario Bros. (NES). I like pretty much every Mario but especially love the original 1-3.

Preferred system?

I really love my Wii because I can download classic games and play them on my console. I have so many amazing games downloaded into it. Thank God because my NES is to the point where you blow hard and they still aren’t playing!

What about least favorite game? Ever played one that just absolutely sucked?

There is one game that I like but I am terrible at it – Altered Beast which I played on Sega Genesis. I was really good at it when I was a little kid but now I can’t even make it past level two. I strive for improvement though. Besides that I am not a big fan of shooting games. I’ve tried them and they aren’t really my thing.

If you could compare yourself to one video game character, who would it be and why?

I am totally Yuffie Kisaragi from FFVII. When my brother and I used to play we always gave her character my name. For one, Yuffie is a babe with a big personality just like me. She is a very sassy, feisty, and headstrong. I like to compare myself to her good traits because I am definitely not a Materia thief. The best part about Yuffie is she is a ninja just like me!

Did you get a Gold Chocobo and all that?

Yes, I obtained the Gold Chocobo. So much racing, breeding, and gil spent. It’s a long and grueling task but is necessary! Trust me you want the “Knights of the round” Summon especially in the “weapons” and final battles. The way you get it is with the Gold Chocobo. I just started a new FFVII game a while ago and am at the Chocobo side quest yet again. Got to have a game night soon so I can tackle it.

Which was harder in your opinion, Ruby or Emerald Weapon?

They are both pretty tough battles but if your equipped well and have the “Knights of the Round” Materia it makes it a lot easier. I would have to say though Ruby is harder than Emerald weapon, though.

Do you think Sony should remake FFVII in high definition for PS3 or leave the game alone?

I am usually one to say don’t mess with the classics but I wouldn’t mind playing a revamped version of FFVII. It would look so pretty on my LED TV. Only condition though is no major changes to the game/storyline and it keeps its integrity.

SuicideGirls Gamer Of The Week: GoGo Suicide  

Posted In All Things SG,Blog,Entertainment,Gaming,Geek,Internuts,TV

by Alexander Hinkley


[GoGo Suicide in The Twelfth]

GoGo is a sexy Italian model that is also into video games. She’s also a movie buff and hardcore Game of Thrones fan, so it’s safe to say that GoGo actually loves all sorts of nerdy things.

Is there a story behind your SG nickname?

There sort of isn’t one. When I first applied for the site I had to pick a nickname and GoGo is what came to mind. It sounded short and cute and easy to remember!

How long have you been modeling?

Since I applied for SuicideGirls in 2004.

You have a ton of really cool tattoos. Is there any special symbolism behind them?

Not really, I mean, besides the name of my dog on my ankle and Rain Dogs across my knuckles over Tom Waits, the rest is just ideas of things that I like / inspire me. I usually just give a rough idea to the artist and let him or her do the rest.

What are some of your favorite video games?

The Silent Hill saga has a special place in my heart. Other than that, I love Diablo 3, LA Noire, and Call of Duty.

Do you play games online much?

I used to be really into Diablo 3 and would play for hours every day. But the servers are so horrible, always down, and always laggy, so eventually I just kinda gradually gave up on it. Call of Duty is a game I like to play sporadically, like when I am really frustrated so I can just shoot some motherfuckers.

Which class do you prefer in Diablo 3?

Wizard all the way! I’m definitely a disintegrate/archon combo wizard.

Ever try to make money on the auction house?

Not real money, only gold to buy more equipment with. I never got that far as wanting to spend hundreds of real dollars for it. Maybe I would have been tempted once or twice if the servers were more reliable, but alas…

What’s your console of choice?

PS3 and desktop :)

Do you think the Silent Hill franchise has gotten better or worse over time?

I think it had ups and downs. Some of them were great, some not so great, but overall it’s the universe of it that really gets to you, you know? 1 and 3 are my favorites.

How/when did you first get into playing video games?

Gosh I don’t know. When my parents gave me a Sega Master System for Christmas when I was little, I guess!

Judging by the fact you list “Winterfell” as your hometown, I take it you’re a Game of Thrones fan?

Huge! I wouldn’t know where to begin! Last year I did a tribute shoot that came out super cool. It was the “grown up version” of Arya Stark. You should check it out!

So where did you really grow up?

Italy, books, and the internet :)

Which is better, the books or the TV show?

This is a hard question! I LOVE the books and at the same time I LOVE the show. I would instinctively pick the book because there’s just more of everything, and you can spend months reading them and being absorbed in the whole imaginarium –– but they sure are doing a great job with the TV version, too. The TV show has the potential to be on air for a long time, whereas the books are being published too far apart and it’s such a long, painful wait!

Favorite character?

Tyrion and Arya. Bran seems to be heading in a very badass direction too, whereas Jon isn’t really as interesting as he once was. But given the huge cliffhanger of the last book, I expect greater things for him to come. *SPOILER ALERT* (I just don’t want him to really be dead). I have to say since Theon became Reek, he also started to really interest me.

Have you gotten a chance to try the GoT RPG that was released back in May?

I haven’t! I feel like between the books and the TV show I have enough GoT in my life if that makes sense!

I understand you’re also somewhat of a movie buff. If you could make any movie into a video game, what would it be?

I am, that’s another subject I could talk about forever! Let me think… Perhaps an Oldboy inspired game where you wake up in a room you don’t know why and you have to solve the mystery and riddles etc. Hmm that sounds like Silent Hill a bit doesn’t it? :)

For more of GoGo find her on Facebook, Twitter and SuicideGirls, and be sure to checkout her Etsy store!

A.J. Focht

Iron Man 3 has already grossed over a billion dollars. Pulling in roughly $285 million here in the states, it’s overseas that Iron Man 3 has been a real hit. International sales have passed $664 million dollars. Iron Man premiered a week early overseas, and it played in 79% of the foreign markets. In its first weekend internationally, it grossed over $198 million, beating the Avengers record. Domestically, Iron Man had the second biggest opening weekend ever bringing in $174 million, behind the Avengers ($204 million). But, despite the massive numbers, Iron Man 3 has been met with incredibly mixed reviews.

Marvel and Disney are raking in a fortune with these superhero movies, and now the heroes want a bigger piece of the pie. Iron Man actor, Robert Downey Jr. is currently renegotiating with Disney. He’s not the only actor wanting a larger pay day, many of the Avengers actors are seeking to renegotiate before signing on for Avengers 2. While the cast is seeking more money from the movies, director Joss Whedon has posted a blog on his site to correct some misinformation about his own payday for the Avengers.

I was going to let it slide, but I’ve got this sour taste in my mouth. (Mmmm, lemonade!). Some facts are not facts. I’m not going to go into the whole thing, but jeepers, I’m not getting $100 mil on Avengers 2. If I were, I would come on this site and laugh and laugh and laugh. I’m not making Downey money. I’m making A LOT, which is exciting. I’m not pretending to be a poor farmer, an Everyman, an ANYman. But that number is nuts. A few other things about me that have been “reported” that people should take with a grain of salt:

That I throw wild Hollywood parties where everyone is naked and dancing and wild and I remember to serve enough snacks.

That I can get a movie greenlit by sighing and staring into the middle distance.

That I ate a unicorn and made it winter for three years.

That I “can write.”

Well, that’s a load off. Sorry to get so personal — the whole thing’s a bit tawdry. But honestly, it bugged me. I’m off for a nice juicy steak. There’s a place downtown that does it with rosemary butter, it tastes just like unico — like a steak.

BYE-ee! J.

Avengers 2 might be having some negotiating trouble with old members, but Marvel’s plans moving forward also include a new lineup. Rumor is that Whedon is seeking to write the Scarlet Witch and her twin brother Quicksilver in to Avengers 2, and there are whispers that Marvel is looking to cast Saoirse Ronan in the role of Scarlet Witch. Whether Saoirse gets the part or not, the helps to give us an idea of the kind of actress they have in mind.

The new Marvel series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to go. The first teaser trailer has been released ending with a reminder #CoulsonLives. The series core cast has been filled out, and Clark Gregg is returning as Agent Coulson. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to premier in the coming fall season.

A new trailer for Thor: The Dark World has been released as Marvel moves forward with their ‘Phase 2’. Thor 2 premiers in November of this year. Captain America is the next movie up after Thor, and Captain America will be joined by some classic heroes for the journey. Anthony Mackie will be playing the Falcon and is set to be in more than half the movie. Robert Redford will also be filling a major role as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Alexander Pierce. The most exciting rumor of Marvel’s casting during ‘Phase 2’ however, is that the tenth Doctor Who, David Tennant may be cast as the gun blazing master tactician Rocket Raccoon.

As Doctor Who moves toward their 50th Anniversary, a new executive producer has been found for the show. Brian Minchin, who has worked in the past on the UK Torchwood, will be taking the role of executive producer, working alongside show frontrunner Steven Moffat.

Star Trek: Into Darkness is moving into theaters this week. The very suspenseful third and final trailer was released for the film. Finally, the great debate over which Spock would win between Nimoy and Quinto is over. It’s embedded inside a commercial trying to sell Audi’s, but it’s nevertheless well worth the watch.

Ender’s Game is moving into theaters on the first of November this year. The first full length trailer for the movie has been released and is appropriately narrated by Harrison Ford. The film was directed by Gavin Hood and stars Asa Butterfield as the title character, Ender.

Comedy Central has a new late night talk show starring the Nerdists’ Chris Hardwick. The show is being co-produced by Funny or Die and will be filling the air slot immediately after The Colbert Report.

SuicideGirls Gamer Of The Week: Annasthesia Suicide  

Posted In All Things SG,Blog,Entertainment,Gaming,Geek,Internuts

by Alexander Hinkley


[Annasthesia (pictured with Phecda) in Playtime]

This week’s SuicideGirls Gamer Of The Week is Annasthesia Suicide. I spoke to Annathesia about her favorite video games and asked for an insider tip on how guys can find a gamer girlfriend.

What made you choose the nickname “Annasthesia?”

I thought it would be clever to take a word that sounded like it could also have a name in it, and play on that. So “Anna” plus “Anesthesia” equaled “Annasthesia.”

How many tattoos and piercings do you have?

Well, I have the tops of my feet tattooed, the back of my neck, my chest, ribs, left forearm, and the makings of an eventual sleeve on my right arm. As far as piercings I’ve only had my lip, monroe, tongue, and belly button pierced. I temporarily donned a back corset piercing at my first Hell City. I think it was 20 piercings total.

Hell City?

Hell City Tattoo Convention. It’s one of the big events I look forward to each year now.

Which spot is the most painful to get tattooed?

So far my ribs have put every other spot to shame. The tops of the feet weren’t great and my chest has had its less than pleasant moments, but my ribs just sucked.

If you were to get one tattoo from a video game, such as a logo or symbol, what would it be?

I always have and still plan to get some Pokémon themed tattoo. I haven’t decided what yet, but it will happen. I like the idea of an 8-bit Togepi.

What are some of your other favorite games?

I’m the biggest Borderlands fan I know. I could play those into oblivion. Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 are great guilty pleasures. I also love all Zelda games. I replay Ocarina of Time on my 3DS whenever I travel.

Who is your favorite character in Borderlands?

Now it’s Tiny Tina, without a doubt. I adore her, Mushy Snugglebites and Felicia Sexopants. Any girl who spends her spare time filling stuffed animals with high grade explosives is top notch in my book! Before her, it was probably be Claptrap or Scooter, and, though he only got briefly mentioned in the sequel, I have a spot in my heart for Butt Stallion as well.

What about favorite gun?

The one that’s going to do the most damage! I almost always go with a Maliwan. Elemental weapons are the way to go. Melt someone’s face off! And usually long range sniper rifles, unless I’m hunting zombies, then an automatic shotgun.

What is the best Pokémon video game in your opinion?

I think every Pokémon fan is a fan of the originals. So I’d have to say it’s a close tie between Red/Blue and Fire Red/Leaf Green, because seeing the original with all new graphics was just tits.

Where does Pokémon Snap fit into things?

I’m probably in the minority, but I love Pokémon Snap. I still have my copy for my N64 and a copy I downloaded onto my Wii. I still play both. I may have a Poké-problem, haha!

Say you were in charge of developing the very next Pokémon video game. What would you added or do differently?

Well, my biggest issues with the newer games is that they seem to have gotten really lazy with the Pokémon themselves, while focusing on how visually intriguing they can make the new environments. Seriously, Trubbish? The trash bag Pokémon? I want better Pokémon and eviler enemies.

Is it true that you can’t ignore Gary Oak’s girth?

Very true. It’s undeniable. And, let’s face it, Gary Oak is the silver-haired fox Anderson Cooper of the Pokémon world. Do you even want to deny his girth? The answer is no, no you do not.

What is the longest you have ever played a game in one sitting and which game was it?

Oh, wow! I’d probably have more impressive numbers here if I played MMORPGs, but I know I’ve spent at least 12 straight hours on both Borderlands and Pokémon respectively. I remember the first night I got Borderlands, I played for over eight hours straight before I even looked at the clock less than a foot from my Xbox. But, I think both of those would probably pale in comparison to the freakish hours I’ve put in playing various versions of The Sims over the years. That stuff is unholy addicting.

What is one game that you could beat anybody in?

Beat anyone at, as in competitively? I think I could still destroy anyone in the original Mario Party 64. Now that’s serious.

Many nerds dream about dating a girl that respects their gaming habits or is a gamer herself. What are some insider tips on how a guy can land a girl gamer such as yourself?

Don’t try too hard. We like a little bit of difficulty or we wouldn’t game, lol.

<b>SuicideGirl Gamer Of The Week: Asio Suicide</b>

SuicideGirl Gamer Of The Week: Asio Suicide  

Posted In All Things SG,Blog,Entertainment,Gaming

by Alexander Hinkley

[Asio in Zelda]

Asio is this week’s Gamer Of The Week. She grew up playing a variety of video games as a kid and is still a retro gamer at heart. I spoke with her about some of her favorite games and also found out a few of her other geeky hobbies.

Tell me about your SuicideGirls nickname “Asio.” What does it mean?

Ha! I love that question. I never get asked what it means. I’m an owl fanatic. If you Google the word “Asio” you will find that there are two kinds of owls with Latin names that start with Asio: Asio flammeus and Asio Otis. My first tattoo was one of an owl. I love owls (and yes there is a very heartwarming story about my grandpa (RIP) who gave me that nickname but people usually don’t care about that).

How did you first get into nude modeling?

My dear friend MissKrone (she’s a member on SG, too) started to learn how to photograph and since we lived very close I somehow became her willing victim. We experimented a lot and started to do pinup shoots and the some latex photos and one day – oops! – I was naked. Things like that just happen, no?

Your profile says you’re from Germany. Ever met Fraise Suicide?

Of course, We live across the country but we have met twice and like all German SuicideGirls, we’re completely in love with each other. Can’t wait to see her again. Also, we have so much in common (OMG Jeffrey Campbell shoes!).

What are some of your favorite games?

That’s a tough one. I grew up being a computer gamer but I also had a hand held. I think I got my first Game Boy at the age of seven or eight and played Mario Land 2 until my mommy was really mad at me. I loved Monkey Island a lot, especially The Curse of Monkey Island. I’m also a huuuuuge Zelda fan, though I’m not so much into the Nintendo DS versions. Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask are my favorites and I’m dying to play Skyward Sword but I’m pretty retro so I don’t own any consoles younger than 10 years, haha. I still might have to get Wii some day.

I love Persona 3 and The Path, which is an independent horror game that is brilliantly made. I also like Zoo Tycoon because of the cute animals! Another of my favorites is Shadow of the Colossus because I prefer games with a good story and an awesome setting. And nothing beats a good round of good ol’ Pokémon or Mario Kart, the latter especially when drunk!

You said you played Mario Land 2 until your mom got mad at you. What happened?

I was a total bookworm as a child so my mom was very used to me staying up late with a pocket light under my blanked to read. When I got the Game Boy, I spent more time with “that stupid box” than with my books, which my mom didn’t really appreciate. I even tried to explain to her that Tetris was training my brain but she didn’t want to listen. So one day she caught me playing Mario Land around midnight and took the Game Boy away for two weeks. Sad me. At least I still had my books and a lot of friends who let me use their Game Boys in school, haha.

Being that you’re an owl lover, have you ever played Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole on DS?

Nah, I haven’t. I’m not so much into games that are made from movies except for Harry Potter because I’m just totally into everything Potter connected. But I might look for some reviews to decide if it’s worth buying!

What games are you currently playing?

To be honest, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 for PS2, haha. It was my favorite game back when I was a skateboard kid so playing one of those gets me nostalgic. Sadly I’m slacking lately, I don’t really have enough time to sit down and concentrate on a game. But I’m also playing Pokémon Pearl on DS. I play that while being in the bathtub and desperately try not to drown my DS, haha.

As someone who has never skate boarded in his life I’ve always wondered, how realistic are the Tony Hawk games?

Haha, they’re not realistic at all. THPS doesn’t know what gravity is. The game is three thousand gazillion times easier than skateboarding. On the other hand, it wouldn’t really be fun otherwise. It’s much safer too, obviously. I can’t even count how many scars I have been rewarded with during the three or four years I’ve been into it.

How many retro consoles do you own?

I own a Super Nintendo that was bought new in our family so I am the first owner! Then I have a Nintendo 64, which I bought two years ago, and a PlayStation 1 and 2. We also have a lot of handhelds; my old grey Game Boy that sadly died some years ago, two Game Boy Colors, and a Nintendo DS, which is not really that retro anymore. There’s my Dreamcast, which also died some years ago. Then my boyfriend has a C64 which needs some fixing and isn’t in use right now.

Do you have any other nerdy hobbies or interests outside of video games?

Ha, yup! I’m a total Potterhead, a walking Harry Potter wiki and I even collect film replicas. I have also been cosplaying for four years now. I love making costumes and going to conventions with my friends. Besides that, I write fan fiction and I used to draw when I had more time on my hands. I always love to try new stuff so currently I’m learning how to play the bass (but I suck).

What are some of the characters you have cosplayed?

My first cosplay was Hermione Granger from Harry Potter and I have cosplayed as Bulma from Dragon Ball, Rei from Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Aigis from Persona 3, just to name a couple. My favorite cosplay is the Skull Kid from Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. I put over 100 hours of work in that one.

What is your favorite convention to attend?

My favorite convention is the Connichi in Kassel. It’s the biggest German manga and anime convention and my friends and I go there each year (only this year I had to skip it). I’ll be going again next year, cosplaying as the Black Mage from Final Fantasy: Tactics along with a group of other mages, yay.

Any other plans for future cosplays?

Aside from the Black Mage, I plan on doing some of my own designs for the next convention in March, a Sagittarius for example. I am also planning to do a cosplay of Canute of Vinland Saga, which is a not so popular manga about Vikings but has a very great story and art. I highly recommend it. I do a lot of not so popular cosplays lately, haha.
