The Gamer Tag
Today I'm taking part in the gamer tag set up by ZombieGoddessBeauty which has been doing the rounds in the geek blogger community. I love gaming so this is a fun one for me to complete and hey you get to learn my gaming loves. Win win!
What is your gamer tag?
Arabella Tome, Arabella_Tome or something pretty much always like that. It's the handle I game under everywhere (also my instagram and twitter handles *hint hint*)
PC or Console?
A decade ago I would have said PC but I'm very much a console girl these days. It's more casual and I can put it down easier.
Console of choice?
Always my xbone. When it's not broken 😭
Handheld of choice?
I still have my original yellow gameboy colour I will have you know. With pokemon yellow. Oh yes. Aren't you jealous?
Keyboard or Gamepad?
As I'm an xbone girl it's a gamepad but I can WASD with the best of them still! I'm actually contemplating customising our gamepads. If I do I'll post it on here if you like?
Singleplayer or Multiplayer?
Honestly it depends. I LOVE playing Gears horde with friends of 2-player games with my Mr Man. Then there are times I just want to sink into my head and game solo. I'd say it's 50/50?
What was the first game you ever played?
Erm like ever ever? Cos technically we're talking nokias snake or the original gameboys tetris ... I swear to god I am not old!
Hardest game you ever played?
Amnesia. I managed like ... 5 minutes. Will never complete. Or even put on again. I'm a scaredy cat and no ashamed to admit it. You cannot shame me!!
What was your first ever gaming system?
Ma original gameboy. My baby bro still has it I think. That things a brick! But it's history.
What is your favourite game of all time?
Ooo well, pokemon yellow probably tbh! Even now if I'm ill or having a bad mental health day I'll haul it out and play for a bit. You can't beat a good classic.
What game is currently your favourite?
Gears 4. I may be a tiiiiny bit obsessed with it's horde levels. I snipe all the things. HEADSHOTS BABY!
Favourite video game genre?
I'm a shoot-em-up kinda gal what can I say? I like to kill em dead. It's my stress reliever!
Favourite video game character?
THE COLE TRAIN baby!!! I'm not sorry. He's my game husband. Deal with it 😋
Which video game character do you hate most?
I ... don't know. I literally have no clue ... omg ... I must hate at least one of them ...
What new game are you excited for?
Mass Effect Andromeda. Nay danger. It looks SO damn good. I'm actually not that big a fan of the ME games but this one I am dying to get my hands on. So prettty.
Favourite video game company/developer?
Bethesda. I said it. I don't care if it's typical. It's true.
What gaming systems do you currently have?
Xbone, Xbox 360, Wii U, Gamecube and my original Gameboy Colour ... little #1 did used to have a 2DS. Till he washed it ... UNDER A TAP. Bless him but no. It'll be replaced for his birthday though. I would LOVE a 3DS and the Nintendo Switch as well.
How long have you been gaming?
Well if you include when I got my very first gameboy ... god ... 15 years. I am not old. NOT OLD.
How long was your longest game session?
Ooo this would be back when I PC gamed. Probably 5/6 hours. I couldn't do that these days. It's part of why I prefer console gaming. I get less addicted.
What game have you clocked the most time on?
Ah. Well. Ok. Admittedly ... yes it was WoW. I was hooked on WoW. We don't talk about that time. No no we don't. I had all the expansions up until the pandas and goblins and garrisons. It's way to addictive to be healthy.
