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?
I’m Massack, long time gamer, streamer, and fantasy enthusiast. Spooky, my wife, is a gamer, writer and scifi enthusiast. We both like a wide variety of game types: sandbox, mmos, shooters, and hack-’em-up RPGs.
Could you share a pic of you together – either IRL or in game, we don’t mind!
We’ve been together 5 years, 6 in december and were just married on may 28th. We met online at a meet up website and kicked it off from there.
Massive congratulations on your wedding! Best wishes for your future together ❤
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 game together in any game both of us have interest in. We shoot zombies together, hunt orcs together, and minecraft together. We even throw LAN parties at our place 2 to 3 times a year. Can we come visit?! Sound fun! That said, we each also have some games that the other isn’t interested in. I’m a big jedi academy guy and Spooky loves kingdom hearts and pokemon. So there are times where we play our own thing.
With the current political situation it’s only right we ask your affiliation: HORDE OR ALLIANCE?
We don’t really play WoW. That said, we play Secret World and we’re both Templars. Pokemon Go we are both Instinct.
Spill the beans: what’s the most fun activity you like to do together? GAMING ACTIVITY… naughty! 😉
Spooky says Minecraft together, building and exploring. I’d say exploring and adventuring together. Be it in an MMO or Minecraft, doesn’t really make a difference.
As a couple, do you find sharing your gaming hobby helps your relationship?
We definitely do. It gives us something to talk about, new things to do, it gives us something we can take our space on too. Both being gamers helps alleviate feeling guilty about the hours we spend gaming while the other is around
*ahem* who rides who on the two seater mount?
Well not sure about mounts. But I usually drive and she mans the gun when dealing with 2 person vehicles. Girl POWAH.
Who is the raid leader in your relationship?!
I’m probably the more social one, so I tend to set up groups, raids and the like as well as lead them.
What’s been the biggest, how can I say this… marital dispute… whilst gaming together?
Hmm we honestly work together pretty great. The only tension comes when nerves run high in competitive type games like Overwatch. We also constantly competing to catch things first in pokemon go. You guys are so cute.
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?
Spooky would handle the killing as she prefers to kill things and I’d handle collecting the loot and keeping count as I’m pretty good at keep track of those kinda things and being quick about it.
Where do you see your future in gaming?
With how open we are to different things. Probably continuing to upgrade our rigs and set up, enjoying new gaming experiences as they come out (I’m personally looking forward to starting Pantheon together. Being the fantasy lover that I am). And hosting lots of bigger and better LAN parties!!
Ok, the million pound question. You’re farming a rare mount. Neither of you has it. It drops. Who gets it?!!
oooo. Spooky says: “you (Massack) get it because you’ll enjoy it more”. I say “you (Spooky) get it because I’m more likely to farm it later.” And in reality, it rots while we debate.
Thanks for speaking with us, guys. Check out Massack’s twitter here.
