So here at FilePlanet I thought it would be a good idea to get in touch with gamers from all over the world and get to know some of the games you play as well as your deep dark gaming secrets. My quest today took me to an old friend who is currently in the Army and stationed in Kansas. After donning my wizard hat and robe we got into what makes his game clock tick and the answers might just surprise you.
Saix: It’s been a while since we have hung out, the last time we played games together you were playing Monster Hunter and FFXIII, what are you playing now?
Wes: Well I have been playing a lot of Wii lately, trying to get back into the classics like Sonic Episode 4 and Sonic Colors along with some newer stuff like SenGoku Bassara.
Saix: So you play a lot of games even though your in the military, is that acceptable? Are there a lot of people on your base that play games?
Wes: Most everyone plays games here, but they don’t all play the same games. Call of Duty and Madden are the big ones, lots of bro gamers in the military.
Saix: What about when you were overseas, time for games then?
Wes:Â when I was overseas I didn’t get to play much, I made time, but it was always cutting into my sleep. Â A lot of people in my unit played like that, but if I got sent to a more dangerous reigon, then gaming would just be out of the question.
Saix: Do they have any military gaming events overseas?
Wes: We had a rec center overseas that was just stocked with games. You walk in and they had an arcade machine with a bunch of older games like Galaga, Pac-Man, and Dig-Dug.Â We also had Rockband tournaments and that kind of stuff. We mostly played Call of Duty: Modern warfare, and now we play more Black Ops than anything.
Saix: Is there any kind of realism when you play Call of Duty overseas? Ovbviously your fighting over there, but to sit down and play some CoD, is it anything like the real thing?
Wes: Yes, most of the weapons were based on real guns and are very similar to the real thing. A lot of the disorientation you get while playing happens on the field.
Saix: well we know what your playing now, but what games are you looking forward to?
Wes: Monster hunter 3rd portable has just been released in Japan and I cant wait for it to get localized here in the states. I’m also looking forward to the new Zelda for the Wii because I cant leave any zelda game un-played. Phantasy Star Portable 2 infinity and most of all: phantasy Star Online 2
Saix: What about when you get home? Obviously gaming Â in the army has a limited time and place for gaming so you take pick up and play games like Maplestory, but when your back home and you have a normal life and schedule again, are your gaming habits going to change?
Wes: They will change for the better, I’ll be playing way more games, as well as more rythym based games, I can’t wait to go back to the arcades!
Saix: Ambitions when you get out of the military?
Wes: Hopefully when I’m out of the army I can join the video game industry myself
