Welcome to our Community Project of 2017 (you can see our last one in 2014 here)!
We propose to do a series of – fun and lightearted – interviews which help us learn a bit more about our awesome community, and hopefully unravel some juicy details about our readers.
If you would like to get involved, contact us.
Thanks for doing our little interview! Can you introduce yourselves?
Hi2u! We’re Aimee and Liam, married with two kids. Are you as knackered as us then?! 🙂
Could you share a pic of you together – either IRL or in game, we don’t mind!
How long have you been together and where did you meet?
We have been together just over six and a half years and we met on an online dating website.
The only reason we managed to meet was because we lived in the same area. I was too ‘young’ for Aimee and I wasn’t really her type either. She preferred her meat heads at the time. Oh how well that planned out!
Show us a picture of your setup – do you have a cute couple thing going on, all cosy?
So, do you tend to play the same games together or prefer to keep gaming life separate?
We tend to keep most of our gaming separate. Aimee prefers games where she can control lives and bend their will. I’ve read this four times now and it still makes me LOL. The Sims, Prison Architect etc but is quite partial to some PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds or Left 4 Dead. I on the other hand have been playing FPS games since the ripe old age of 8. I also like to invest a lot into WoW at the moment. Loving my Warrior! SMASH!
With the current political situation it’s only right we ask your affiliation: HORDE OR ALLIANCE?
No discussion needed.. Horde. Hmm, I’m not sure it’s a fair representation if Aimee isn’t a WoW player, I reckon she would definitely vote Ally 😉
Spill the beans: what’s the most fun activity you like to do together? GAMING ACTIVITY… naughty! 😉
We love to help each other out with our prison design. Saying what works and what could change etc. Our L4D games have also been quite fun! Especially when we consider just how many friendly fire incidents there are. She has always said she would like to punch me square in the face. She needs to roll an Alliance monk and meet you in the PvP ring, clearly!! Maybe this is the closest she will get to actually doing it. Who knows!
As a couple, do you find sharing your gaming hobby helps your relationship?
We wouldn’t see each other outside of date night and the mornings before work. I hate watching TV, bores the crap out of me. So I’m glad Aimee has found a new love in gaming. She is starting to get slightly addicted now 😉
*ahem* who rides who on the two seater mount?
I’m always getting ridden; Like the village bicycle.
Who is the raid leader in your relationship?!
Aimee would hide in a corner if she had to decide on something. So I’ll take the lead.
What’s been the biggest, how can I say this… marital dispute… whilst gaming together?
I’ve been playing games most of my life and things come easier to me than Aimee. I forget that and just expect her to know what the [censored the naughty word – put a pound in the swear jar 😜] is going on and learn quickly before we die in a battle royale! Understandingly, she can get a little overwhelmed and will panic. It leads to a few on-air arguments. It brings back the viewers though! Silver linings and all that.
Of course, you guys stream together! Tell us a bit about that.
We’ve been streaming random sh*t on Twitch for a few years now. We’re not very big or serious, but we have a good laugh!
One of you has to kill 100 kobolds and one has to collect the 100 shiny beads they drop… who does which task and why?
Aimee is all for the shiny objects. She’s like a fish.
Where do you see your future in gaming?
We love to stream and it would be awesome to one day make it a living, like most other gamers. Time and family make that difficult. So our gaming future will be great as long as we find time to keep playing with each other (naughty naughty).
Ok, the million pound question. You’re farming a rare mount. Neither of you has it. It drops. Who gets it?!!
Aimee wouldn’t even know that it dropped. So I would get it and use it for quite awhile before she realised.
This interview has been genuinely hilarious, thanks so much for talking with us. Have a little self-advertising below:
