Yesterday, I decided to tackle the Sunshine Blogger Award tag that I received from Thomas. Today’s post is about the same tag but it’s a more recent nomination, so I’m happy to be one of the nominations by Meghan. If you haven’t yet, check out her blog post over here.
So, the rules are simple:
- Thank the person that tagged you (Thanks, Meghan!).
- Answer questions (it’s eleven for whatever reason)
- Ask questions (again, eleven… who came up with that?)
- Nominate people (will probably do that later!)
Question 1: In the spirit of the 25th anniversary of Pokemon: if you were the Champion of your region, which Pokemon would be on your team of 6?
I love Platinum’s Cynthia. Her design is great and her choice of Pokémon’s amazing… so maybe her team actually. Those Pokémon would be Spiritomb, Roserade, Togekiss, Milotic, Lucario, and Garchomp. Personally speaking, I may take out Roserade for Guardevoir and switch Lucario out for Sableye but apart from that I really like that team. Now, if I were a Gym Leader, I’d probably run a Ghost Type Gym with Dusknoir, Gengar, Chandelure, Gourgeist, Dragapult, and Mimikyu as my team.
Question 2: How do you feel about presentations like Sony’s State of Play and Nintendo Directs? Love em or hate em? Why?
While I don’t like them, I don’t dislike them. I’ve never really watched any of those shows really. Usually, they happen, I miss it, and I can’t be arsed to watch it or inform myself, which isn’t a problem really… I just don’t care, I think.
Question 3: Video game movies are usually terrible, but which game would you like to see adapted on the big screen? Any dream cast members?
Graveyard Keeper… the movie…. I feel like that sounds quite alright… and Jason Segel sounds quite good for the protagonist!
Question 4: If you were a video game character that had to use a mundane item (i.e. an umbrella) as a weapon, what would you use?
A typewriter because it worked quite well in Blacksad!
Question 5: Have you picked up any new hobbies during the pandemic? If so, talk about it!
I’d joke about daylight drinking but I quit that already, so… not really, sorry.
Question 6: How did you get into video games in the first place?
Question 7: Who is your least favourite video game character of all time?
I feel like it would be rude to name anyone here since video game characters are people’s creations and a lot of people worked on them, from the model to the writing and programming to the voice acting. It would probably be saddening for them if they heard you talk about their children like that. Shame on you! Shame! Shame! Shame! But jokes aside, Breathedge’s AI is annoying, so while it may not be my least favourite video game character… it scores quite low on that list… or high.. or… you know…
Question 8: Does pineapple belong on pizza?
I don’t mind pineapple on pizza but I don’t think that it’s a must-be… and I think “belong” would imply that which is untrue. Imagine a nice tuna pizza with red onions and garlic… pineapple would suck on that. Anyways, pineapples on pizza, in general, can work quite well, though, and pineapple on hamburgers is amazing. But take my opinion with a grain of salt. I like Dr Pepper, I don’t mind insect burgers, and I like a lot of weird Japanese black bean sodas and whatnot that other people may not enjoy.
Question 9: A lot of video games incorporate some form of cooking – if you had to cook a signature recipe in a game, what would you choose? What stats would it boost/what would it do for you?
Tuna Pasta with Mayonaise. It boosts your health by a lot since tuna’s great… but it lowers your stamina because you ate too much of it and need a nap now.
Question 10: Has there ever been a game that you decided to walk away from before completing? If so, why?
Yes. A lot of games. There are a lot of games that I stopped playing not even half-way through. Either the controls are too frustrating and the game feels janky (see Witcher 1) or something bothers me like collecting women as trophies or some shit like that (see Witcher 1) or it’s just boring or buggy (see Witcher 1). There are a lot of reasons to walk away from a game but I don’t think that that’s a bad thing. If you don’t enjoy a game, why would you try to push through it regardless? Heck, I’m not a masochist that’s going to sit through the Witcher 1 or any of the other games that I haven’t played through the story yet. Jeez.
Question 11: Have you ever been talked down to, or insulted for playing a certain game or genre? How did you respond?
Yes, and it’s actually kind of funny. Someone was trying to pick a fight with me in a stream and started insulting me and stuff. He was trying to be funny with it but I ended up cringing a lot at him… Then he tried to act as if he was aware of that and as if he’s just pretending to be like that…. but he made it worse. Either way, he tried to insult me by saying that I only play Indie games… so, I responded that I didn’t know if that’s supposed to be an insult or something. I don’t know where the problem with Indie Games is and why that would be an insult. There are more than enough Indie Games that are better than the Witcher 1 or other Tripple-A titles, so… there’s that… and I also said that it’s just not true. It’s just lame by him to try to attack people by their tastes and get it wrong as well… and then he wanted to insult my streams, so I just said that it’s sad to see him attack other streamers, especially since that’s against Twitch’s Affiliate Agreement (which he accepted) and he kept quiet after that. Anyways, people are idiots.
So, here are my nominations for this tag:
GO – because GO’s a cool guy.
William – because he’s a fun guy as well.
McKenna – because it’s always a pleasure to read their posts.
Wilhelm – because I like his Valheim posts a lot.
Aywren – because their posts get me into the mood to play BDO again. Also, Aywren’s posts are great and they’re one of the first people I got to know through blogging.
If anyone else wants to make a post on these questions and continue the tag, feel free to. It’s fun. No pressure. If any of the nominees don’t want to do it, tag someone else and pressure them into doing this. Thanks!
And the questions for you guys are:
Question 1: What awful movie do you love?
Question 2: Can a society exist without laws?
Question 3: If you could only play one game to play for the rest of your life, which game would you absolutely not choose?
Question 4: You can detach one of your body parts. Which one is it and why do you want to detach that body part?
Question 5: Is there someone or something that you always have time for?
Question 6: If Earth was populated by only you and clones of you… what would life, society and the world be like?
Question 7: Would you rather only be able to drink your least favourite drink in the world or only be able to eat your least favourite food?
Question 8: What is something that you’ve never tried out because you think that you’d be horrible at it?
Question 9: A time traveller from 200 years in the future appears before you. His time machine’s core-thingy is unstable, so he only has time to answer one question by you. What do you ask him?
Question 10: What was your first-ever crush from a video game?
Question 11: If you were a vegetable, you’d be a cutecumber. How does that make you feel?
Have fun answering the questions! Thanks for reading this post.
