BC2 Player Interview #17
Member Interview #17
A little about yourself:
Powello - which is my nickname, as my last name is Powell.
love gaming, but also the outdoors and a good movie. live in ballarat VIC, like AFL and follow the blues, just bought a house.
Have a 2yo son, and another on the way, which apparently is going to be a girl - so bracing myself for the “teenage daughter” stressful years coming!
Day Job? Night Job? What do you do?
Work in a government call centre as a tech guy/ customer service/supervisor role. Don’t love it, don’t hate it, but pays the bills.
Favourite pastime outside of gaming?
Like cars, have a boosted WRX to keep me entertained for now, last car was a 12sec VL Turbo which met its unfortunate end due to a motorist who decided not to give way
Also like shooting and archery, like going hunting with both, and shooting clays also - am a DJ playing techno/psy trance mainly but love most electronic music with a bit of oomph to it. love music in general though, getting the Hi-fi bug at the moment, just need to win lotto to fund it though… also like the odd game of chess and model rockets.
Your having Dinner tonight and have 3 Guests (alive or Dead) to invite, Who are they and why?
3-Stephen hawking - i love physics especially theoretical and astro - keep it the one theme and would have some wicked conversation that night!
If you could have one thing in this world, what would it be?
Nice house on 1000 acre property with a nice river and deer population.
best was probably finishing ultima VII both parts and expansions. months and months of gaming there and probably the best game i’ve ever played.
Lowlights are usually when something blows up in the pc or hdd crashes losing all my stuff! seem to have a bad run with that.
How long have you been a TOG?
Joined when TF2 was out, and love the community. met alot of great people from here. 23/12/07 was the join date - so coming up to 3yrs.
Other games you play apart from BC2?
Day of defeat source, used to play alot of TF2 but not so much now, liked the stalker series, singularity, borderlands, and into a bit of starcraft II at the moment single player, not so good at RTS, but do have fun playing. other than that most decent FPS games that come out.
How long have you been playing BC2?
just after it was first released (proper not beta)
love the gustav (yeah i know )
Funniest Gaming Experience Ever?
probably the shennanigans that go on friday nights on Venty in DODs, some of the things make you nearly fall off your chair literally. Best way to wind down a week by far.
Funniest BC2 Moment?
probably when i try to repair the tank, mouse wheel buggers up and get CG instead of the repair tool, killing myself and all the guys in the tank too
probably the lvl50 toggers. usually give you a hiding. jubby’s name probably comes up the most.
no idea. i just take any kill i can muster!
Dumbest BC2 moment?
probably running the full way of a map once to get to the frontline, but realising when u get all the way to the other side you actually spawned there in the first place, and now you’re back at spawn…
Game improvements, what would you like to see improved?
more maps! gets a bit tiresome after a while - or at least allow user made ones like other games, would keep the game so much fresher.
