After being nominated for the Unique Blogger award, I was shocked to be nominated for two more awards. I’ve never been nominated for anything before, never mind three things.
I was nominated for the Liebster Award by thatgeekywriterchick, who writes cool things on Fistful of Glitter. This post about her illness made me put things in perspective and maybe it’ll do the same for you too.
Here are the rules for this award;
- Create a new post thanking the person who nominated you.
- Provide a link to their blog.
- Include the award graphic.
- Answer the questions provided.
- Nominate recently followed bloggers and share your post with them, so they can see it.
- Make a new set of 10 questions for your nominees to answer
So, that leads us to some questions; let’s see what thatgeekywriterchick has set us.
What’s your favourite thing to write about?
Well, video games I guess! It’s the only thing I write about at the moment…though that will change in the future.
Why do I enjoy writing about games? I guess it’s something I feel confident about and something that I can relate to when talking to other people. Considering my other hobbies are watching pro wrestling and alternative/punk/metal bands, it’s usually my best choice of conversation!
What’s your favourite media to experience? (Book, video games, movies ect.)
Again, video games. I love being able to interact with a completely different world and get lost in the story or lose myself in a fantasy…like on Pro Evolution Soccer 1, where I made myself the David Beckham-esque superstar of my team. I insisted on taking all set pieces and being the playmaking, goalscoring midfielder that I’m definitely not in real life!
If you had to live in a fictional world, which fictional world would it be?
Pro Evolution Soccer 1! No, I’d have to say somewhere that suits my ‘blue skies’ Sega mindset…like Crazy Taxi! I could happily race around all day making crazy money! To be fair, I’m slowly turning into Gus from that game anyway…
Who is your all-time favourite character? Why?
Probably Travis Touchdown. I really need to go back to Santa Destroy and beat that game. Travis makes me laugh, loves wrestling, insists on wearing a leather jacket at all times and mixes his life with the mundane everyday tasks…I can relate.
If you could have any power from a video game, movie, television show or book, what would it be? And why?
I really like Kilgrave’s mind control in Jessica Jones. It’s the fact he’s so casual and well…British about it. No over the top commands, no silly costumes, no elaborate commands…just ‘Do this now, like this.’ He’s efficient. There is no way you couldn’t use that power for evil though! The temptation would be too much….
What is your favourite meal?
Pizza. I love meat, bread and cheese. I love the selection. I love the different types. I obsess over Pizza Hut’s buffet (even though I haven’t been to one in years.) I’ve actually become a pizza snob. I will only really eat Pizza Hut, Chicago Town or supermarket deli pizzas (the ones they make fresh in the store.) No Goodfellas for me, no way. Went to Secret Pizza on my trip to Vegas in October…superb. Pizza and an adventure all in one…
What is your favourite comedy show or sketch?
I have a stupid sense of humour, so it would probably be the smallest thing ever. The one scene that makes me cry with laughter every time I see it is the Krusty Burglar scene from the episode of The Simpsons where Homer trains to be a Krusty impersonator.
“Stop it! Stop it! He’s already dead!!!”
I’m laughing now just typing that…
What is your name?
I can’t reveal that – the Video Games Police have been looking for me for years and if they learn my true identity they’ll take me down.
If you want to hunt for my real name, it’s on the review I did for Sega Does. That’s all I’m saying.
What is your favourite colour?
‘Black…Black like your soul!’ I’ll stop with the Simpsons quotes now….
Why? It looks good with anything and it’s easy to find.
What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
What do you mean? African or European swallow?
Brandon Green @ That Green Dude – he likes wrestling, so he’s alright in my book.
A Reluctant Hero – for being a hero against his/her will
Doug M – I like what he writes and I enjoyed our conversation about Super Hang On.
Megan @ The Dragon’s Tea Party – she eats peanut butter and celery together…
Launches Joypad – I admire his quest; who doesn’t want to find a game that won’t annoy them?
Sega or Nintendo?
You’ve got a time machine and enough plutonium for one trip. Where do you go?
What’s your biggest gaming regret? The one game that you just couldn’t finish?
Have you ever seen a man say goodbye to a shoe?
What’s the worst gaming birthday present you’ve ever had?
Are you a cat or dog person?
Favourite Lego set you had growing up/now?
What’s the most underappreciated video game of all time?
What’s your favourite flavour of ice cream?
Thank you for reading and I look forward to reading some answers! No pressure, it’s cool if you’re busy.
