Subscriber Spotlight - January 2013


Hello there friends, gather round......closer now, don't be afraid.

PSYCHE!!! *buzzing chainsaw* *severed limbs* *pitiful screams*

Just kidding. I'm briefly stepping in this month as Method is out of state being a Bounty Hunter (and if not - that's what I wish he was doing), so it fell to me to spin the random finger of fate (we have an ACTUAL finger!) and decide who would be the next rabbit on the headlights of our question like juggernaut.

Our unfortunate victim, errrrr.......I mean lucky winner is none other than Nozza x360a who just so happens to be from the south of England - but nobody’s perfect, right?

- Welcome to the spotlight! Introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about yourself.
*Clears throat* Hello. Here's where I pour my heart and soul out to you all, so brace yourselves for one hell of a ride. It'll be very similar to one of those extreme carousels you get at your local fair.

Most of you know me as Nozza, but my real birth name is Mike. I'm 25, I reside in the county of Surrey which can be found in the UK. I still live at home with my parents because housing prices are beyond stupid. I'm out going, quite social, love walks along the high-streets and in my spare time I like to play computer games.

- What first brought you to x360a, and then what made you stick around and subscribe?
I can't really remember as it was a good 5 years. Though like most people, it all comes down to gaming and those pesky little things called achievements. I think I was playing LEGO Batman when I found this place or a bit before. I searched the web using that generic search engine and x360a popped up and I've never looked back.

X360a was the first every site I signed-up to and the first forum I ever used. I was an internet noob! After a few years, I decided to give back and subscribed. £250+ later, I'm still handing these guys my money but it's all worth it!

- How did you come up with your gamertag?
Gamertags... I've had so many - Th3rd Assassin, XxMKNxX, XxMKNxREBORNxX, Xx NozzA xX, OINozzAIO and now SnozzyBear. The previous one to what I use now was based off my birthday (01/10), but as you can't start with numbers I chose I's and O's. Then everyone thought my name was OIN, like some kind of musical instrument sound or aliens name.

So I decided to change it and use the random nickname my friend gave me and change it to SnozzyBear. It's been this for maybe a year or so now.

-Is the 360 your only current console? What others have sharpened your gaming skills over the years?
It's not the only one I've got but it's the only one I play. Here's what I do and have owned over the many years (* still own) - PC*, SNES, SEGA Megadrive*, Gameboys* (every version (even the see-through pocket one) except for the 3DS onwards), N64*, Gamecube*, Wii*, PS, PS2*, PS3, PSP* Xbox* & the 360S*.

All of these have sharpened my skills since I was like 4 years old. Every new console I'd get, I'd play anything and everything and advance in my gaming knowledge and skill. For me there's nothing better than sitting down and playing a game be it new or a classic like Dynamite Headdy!


- What is your gaming setup?
I currently have;

Samsung 42" LED LCD TV
Black 360S
X11 Turtle Beach Headset

That's it, plain and simple. Hopefully when I get my own place, I'll sort out a surround sound system!

- When you're picking the next game to grace your console, do you go for game play or achievements first?
I would say a bit of both, but that's not the case now. I used to be one for achievements and whoring them out, but since I hit 100K, I only buy games I want to play. So I'd say gameplay or a game that interests me.

The 55k I've got since then has mainly been from new AAA titles and such. Though a few GS has been from those cheeky easy ones, but we'll blame that on the GSL...

- Everyone has a 360 game they can't get enough of, what’s yours?Took me a while to think of one. As much as it annoys me to the brink of nearly breaking something, Trials HD/Evo has a place in my heart.

Other that, I spread my time over other games I enjoy with different friends ranging from CoD to Borderlands 2.

- And the game that makes you scream?Trials HD/Evo. It's a love hate relationship. Saying that, I have a bad temper. Some people I've played Xbox LIVE with may be reading this and have been at the end of some of my raging rants.

I apologise now, but it's a short fuse trait I get from my father. Blame him!

- What achievement(s) are you most proud of?
Trials Evo - Marathon. Sorry but it was the patched version, but still a hard task! CoD's on Veteran. Now I know some are hard and some aren't, but CoD 2 was close to being snapped in half by me. I regret to say, I haven't done CoD 3/WaW. 3 I have no reason why, but I think you can guess on WaW. Rounding it up, I'm split between completing the Halo's on Legendary solo or FUBAR for Spec Ops: The Line.

- We all know gaming goes on till the early morning. What do you eat and drink to keep the reflexes sharp all night?
You're going to laugh, but I don't. 1; Because I rarely stay up that late gaming nowadays and 2; I hate eating really late.

If I had to, it'll probably be some bland old water and packet of cola bottle Haribo mix!

- You've played through a lot of games during that time. Out of all of the games you played, which was your favourite?
Actually some other newer games recently released have put a smile on my face. Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution, Darksiders II, Lollipop Chainsaw, Spec Ops: The Line and Rayman Origins - I could go on. Though looking back, I'd say Deus Ex has to be one of my favourite. The whole... thing was just amazing! I was so pleased with it, I even wrote an Achievement Guide for the site. You should check it out /plug.

I've yet to have the chance to play the DLC, but it's on my list of things to do. I hope there's a new one for the next-gen Xbox!

- Well, there has to be a few games that you didn't like. Which ones were the worst?
Off the top of my head, Dead Rising. Everyone raved about it and I got the original back in the day. I think I played up to where you go through a small stock/warehouse room near the start. Quite close to the first room you hide in.

After another hour or so, I hated it. Seriously, I don't get or enjoy it, sorry. I've never wanted to get the newer instalments or Arcade versions or simply give it another go.

- Everyone has their games that they just struggle with. Which games did your head in?
Anything sports related. Only ones I can really play are NHL and FIFA but that's with mates. But you give me anything else like MLB, NFL or NBA then I'm not playing it.

The hard thing was trying to play these for the last GSL. Seany Sh0w sent me his US 360 and a few sports games came with it. May I add they should of been quick and easy 1ks... Oh no! He was lucky he got the games back in one piece.

- Not every game with quick points is easy to complete. Are there any games that you are giving up on?
A few sports games, MLB 2K6 to name one. Sometimes I don't give up but I simply don't play the game enough to complete it or DLC comes out and I'm like "Nah, forget that". I'm quite happy with the way I play games now.

I still want to go out there and grab all or as many of the achievements as possible. If I can get the 100%, I will. But if I'm not enjoying the game or I don't play it enough to warrant the £/MSP to get some DLC for the extra added achievements, then I won't.

I've given up or not bothered to go back to a few games now in the past simply because I can't be arsed to play them again or I'm too lazy!

- What was the last thing you purchased on the arcade? Was it worth it?
Sonic Fighters. Only because it was a quick 400GS. Some of the other most recent are, The Walking Dead and Outland which Webb kindly gave me for doing some urgent work for the site!

- Which game(s) are you most eagerly awaiting?
What else, GTAV. I have a few others on my list which are, Bioshock Infinite, Lara Croft, Crysis 3 and Splinter Cell: BL. I'm not sure on the Aliens: Colonial Marines game yet, I'm yet to look into it!

- If you were Admin of the site for a day, what would you do?!
I'm not sure this is needed since Creech has done so much in the last couple of months. Dude deserves some free none-lie cake!

I'd probably follow in his footsteps and revamp the forums and really add features and stuff that the site could do with. I'm not sure I'd do the whole banning people thing, as I'll need to dig deep and check back to my hit-list. I'm sure I can find a few people

- Any closing remarks?
As always, big thanks for x360a and especially the community. We wouldn't be where we are without you! Thanks to the friends I've made over the many years and let’s hope there will be many more.

PS: Lee, as requested in your PM to me. Here's a girl coming out of a cake while holding some cake. I'm sorry there's no streamers, but hopefully the balloons will suffice?

I actually had the same reaction to Dead Rising. I didn't really care for it at first and it sat half played for a while. It wasn't until I went back to it that I started to appreciate the game.

Nozza does has something to do with my last name but it's not Norris. You'll never guess it unless you search the site where it's posted in one place.

Congrats Nozza. Most of that was hard for me to read though, I don't know why.

Edit: Not hard to read from what was said.
