name: John Pickering
location: Hattiesburg, MS
10 favorite bands: Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Primus, Anal Cunt, Galactic, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, They Might Be Giants, Aphex Twin, Dave Brubeck, and N.W.A.
10 favorite games: Starcraft, Warcraft III, Aliens vs. Predator II, Megaman II, Mrs. Pac-man, Metal "fucking" Slug, Super Mario Bros. 2, Animal Crossing, Soul Calibur II, and Mario Kart: Double Dash.
favorite genre of games, why?: Oddly enough, RPGs, despite the lack of serious examples listed in my favorite games. I always enjoy RPGs, but I never really found a need to play any of them through more than once or twice. There's something about developing a character from peon to God over the course of several months. I don't know what that something is, but it's definitely there.
pc or console games, why?: A PC is good for FPSs, RTSs, and MMORPGS. Games out of those genres are just retarded to play on a console. Xbox owners may disagree (Halo) but they're just brainwashed into thinking they don't own a low-end PC. Consoles dominate everything else.
pick one; nintendo, sony or microsoft: Nintendo. Hands down.
what systems do you own?: ColecoVision, Atari Lynx, Nintendo Gamecube, Gameboy Advance, and a vintage Sega Genesis, 32X, and Sega CD (designed for the smaller genesis) combo with ground effects and mag wheels.
game you’ve beaten the most times/OWN everyone at: I don't know. It's argueable, as my reality is skewed, and therefore better than everyone else's. Probably AvP II. Soul Calibur and Mario Kart are a close tie for second place.
favorite game of this year?: probably Warioware: Mega Party Game$.
what's the most under-rated game you've played?: Pac-Mania. It's badass. Nobody cared.
what game are you most looking forward to?: World of Warcraft, Beeeeyatch.
be honest: Were you a Pokemaniac? Absolutely not. No. No fucking way.
Although, I'm strangely knowledgeable about Pokemon. At first it was because I hated it so much. Later, it became funny (only to me) to drop comments like "I was a total Snorlax all day today."
do you cosplay?: Fuck no. I'd like to think this is a joke question.
post a 100x100 of you:
where/how did you hear about us?: igorxa told me about you elitist bastards at this year's Southern Decadence gathering. It was fabulous!
This is me abusing igorxa with a chicken wing.
Here I am leaving almost 7 lbs. of chocolate pudding on a random neighbor's doorstep for July 4th.
Sideways. A some crazed turk-hurricane hit my file server, so these pictures will have to do.
On a boat. Darkies need sunscreen too.
I copied the image url for the last photo out of a friend of mine's yahoo photo directory. If it fails, there are several more pictures at http://www.face-pic.com/jizzmatic20
Judge me harshly a) because I'm an asshole and b) I really need my ego broken.
