    What's the story behind your gamertag?

    When I first joined xbox live the only game I played was Gears of War. Everyone in the first clan I was part of called me a beast so I changed to it. After leaving that clan, and several other gamertag changes I recently changed back to Beast after everyone once again called me a beast while playing Gears Of War 2...I just recently added S4VN to it, because I saved myself from a very bad situation.

    I wanted to wait until I was an official member before doing this, so here goes:

    Gamertag

    EvilTorch

    What's the story behind your gamertag?

    My original gamertag was TorchFX. I was a huge fan of the Fantastic Four comics, particularly the Human Torch. I was really into punk music, and one of my favorite bands was NOFX. I just sort of mashed them together and TorchFX was born. I got bit by the achievement bug pretty bad and was playing a lot of garbage to boost my gamerscore and I just got to a point where I decided that was ridiculous and wanted a change. That's when I created my "evil" alter ego, EvilTorch. The rest is history.

    How long have you been on Xbox LIVE?

    I was an original Xbox Live beta tester and began my Xbox career as TorchFX.

    What other gaming consoles do you regularly succumb to?

    I play on my PC from time to time, and I also have a PS3 that rarely gets used. iPhone has become a pretty good gaming device as well.

    How close does your Avatar resemble your real self?

    I would say it's pretty close, although my avatar may be a little thinner than the real EvilTorch!

    What is your favorite single player & multiplayer Xbox LIVE game?

    Single Player - It's a toss up between Batman: Arkham Asylum and Red Dead Redemption
    Multiplayer - Since I don't play many multiplayer games, the one I've played online the most is Halo: Reach.

    What was your most memorable gaming experience?

    The day I got my first console, the Nintendo Entertainment System. That was the beginning of my gaming career and I'll never forget that. I also have fond memories of family game nights playing BurgerTime on the Intellivision and watching my dad play Yars' Revenge on the Atari 2600.

    What do you do when you're not playing video games?

    Full-time daddy/husband, so spending time with my family takes over most of my life outside gaming. I also love movies, particularly the Horror genre, but I watch almost anything (except Romantic Comedies...those are awful)

    Your guilty pleasure movie (you know the one, where you’re a little embarrassed you’ve watched it over and over or that you actually liked it)

    It's a little embarrassing how many times I've watched both the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the original Star Wars trilogy.

    What's the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?

    I was a stock boy at a grocery store. That wasn't exactly fun, especially since my manager was a giant douche.

    Beer, liquor, wine, or something else?

    I enjoy a good beer, but I've been know to put a hurting on bottles of vodka. I also recently got into American Honey, which is a Wild Turkey bourbon-based liqueur with a hint of honey. It's scary how smooth it goes down and I can make a bottle of that disappear pretty quickly.

    Favourite food?

    Pizza, pizza and pizza.

    Favourite TV show?

    Dexter

    3 favorite bands?

    Mastodon
    Clutch
    The Sword

    I got my feet wet with the abomination known as NFL Fever. And yeah, Revolt Racing was a fun game.

    What's the story behind your gamertag?
    Heard the word on a podcast. Apparently, someone in the 12th-13th century tried to invent a new musical instrument by lining up some pigs (according to size, naturally) and pulling their tails in a rhythmic fashion. Thus, the Oinkaphone was born.


    How long have you been on Xbox LIVE?
    Since November 2008.


    What other gaming consoles do you regularly succumb to?
    PS3. Also, Wii Bowling with my 4 year old, who consistently beats me. My high score is around 187. His is 203...


    How close does your Avatar resemble your real self?
    Pretty close, though my real-life corners may be a bit more, um, rounded.


    What is your favorite single player & multiplayer Xbox LIVE game?
    For single player, it would have to be either the Mass Effect games, Fallout 3 or Oblivion. Yeah - probably Oblivion. Multiplayer would be Borderlands, CoD series and Battlefield, even though I don't play it much.


    What was your most memorable gaming experience?
    There are a bunch, but the most recent was in Red Dead Redemption. When I crossed the river into Mexico and that Jose Gonzalez song started playing...fucking brilliant. (I can swear here, right?)


    What do you do when you're not playing video games?
    Work. I'm an editor for a film company in real life, which mostly doesn't suck. Also, I'm married with a wonderful wife and a perfect and magical 4-year old boy. And, in my copious free time, I'm studying computer programming.


    Your guilty pleasure movie (you know the one, where you’re a little embarrassed you’ve watched it over and over or that you actually liked it)
    Don't guess I have one. I'm proud of the crappy movies I like.


    What's the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?
    Either I've had mostly good jobs, or I've blocked out the trauma. Either way, it's win-win.


    Beer, liquor, wine, or something else?
    Beer. I'm a total beer nerd.


    Favorite food?
    Pizza or anything Thai.


    Favorite TV show?
    3 current ones, in no particular order:
    Breaking Bad
    Sons of Anarchy
    Dexter


    3 favorite bands?
    In order:
    Frank Zappa (tie)
    Chris Whitley (tie)
    Everyone else

    What's the story behind your gamertag? I've been a medic for a long time. I made the GamerTag bag when I was playing battlefield on the PC, Sadly we played this while deployed to Iraq the first time. I figured because we spend most of the time walking on asphalt all day that the name AsphaltRanger was appropriate.

    What's the story behind your gamertag? I used to have five ferrets that I inherited from an exgf. I thought if I ever got two more I would call them that. It was supposed to mean me and my wife, but she has her own machine and GT now.


    How long have you been on Xbox LIVE? Oh lets say 3.5 years


    What other gaming consoles do you regularly succumb to? Used to play PC for EverQuest but I've been away from that ever since my 360 came along.


    How close does your Avatar resemble your real self? That's me. Still wearing my Carolina Panthers jersey with pride.


    What is your favorite single player & multiplayer Xbox LIVE game?
    Single Player would probably be Bioshock - having read Atlas Shrugged gives the game another layer of perspective. MP is Black Ops.


    What was your most memorable gaming experience? Making it to Level 50 on GoW2 Horde


    What do you do when you're not playing video games? I can do other things? Work or whatever my wife tells me to. I've got a bad back so I don't do much physical activity. Years ago I used to do a lot of theatre as I can sing dance and act. I've still got my tap and ballet shoes.


    Your guilty pleasure movie (you know the one, where you’re a little embarrassed you’ve watched it over and over or that you actually liked it) - Cabin Boy with Chris Elliot. I used to love that movie, in hindsight I've made a lot of questionable decisions in my life.


    What's the worst or weirdest job you've ever had? As a performer in college I used to get to do character work. I've been Tweety, Sylvester, and I was Marge Simpson for a week.


    Beer, liquor, wine, or something else? Bourbon I've actually run diagnostics on this and my MP score does show marginal improvement while drinking. Although, there is a bell curve here.


    Favorite food? Biscuits and gravy...don't get it much. Most commonly ate food: Cereal, my wife is not what you would call skilled in the kitchen.


    Favorite TV show? Fringe is about the only thing I DVR to watch later.


    3 favorite bands? I've always preferred older music. Paul Simon, Journey and Boston (I don't do a lot of music, but I enjoy whats generally on the radio)

    What's the story behind your gamertag?

    I updated my old tag rlasly to ChewieMMX. One of my oldest friends nick-named me Chewie in our heavy drinking days. I was going through a divorce while we were room mates and he pulled into the parking lot one day and he could hear me shouting into the phone with her from his car. In addition when I drank too much he found it humorous that my prayers to the toilet gods sounded akin to Chewie’s battle cry… the MMX was simply to mark the year 2010.

    How long have you been on Xbox LIVE?

    Hell I’m not sure… a little over a year now? I tried to look it up but thanks to kinect updates I can’t find squat on my gamer profile anymore… ugh

    What other gaming consoles do you regularly succumb to?

    Just XBL since my PC game Guild Wars buddies are all waiting impatiently for Area Net to release Guild Wars II.

    How close does your Avatar resemble your real self?

    I’m told he’s the spitting image… although that was before I bought the “Wookie” costume… so not so much now.

    What is your favorite single player & multiplayer Xbox LIVE game?

    Single player: Dragon Age Series… I love the long a$s story lines as it combines my love for epic stories and gaming.

    Multiplayer: MWS is the only one I’ve spent ample time with but I’m sure there will be more in the future.

    What was your most memorable gaming experience?

    Prior to Black-Ops release just running Michael Myers with you geezers… most fun I’ve had in ages… I mean what’s better than hide & go-seek with a tac-knife >=0)

    What do you do when you're not playing video games?

    Husband, father, Assoc. Director of Financial Aid, reading George RR Martin books now… I’ve also been doing some writing of my own over the last few years although I’m trying to finish my degree and have put it on hold until next fall.

    Your guilty pleasure movie (you know the one, where you’re a little embarrassed you’ve watched it over and over or that you actually liked it)

    True Blood… some of the episodes have made me cringe or question why I watch that crap… but over-all it’s been a decent HBO Series.

    What's the worst or weirdest job you've ever had?

    Collections Coordinator for Federal Loans… yuck! Worst job, can’t think of one that would qualify as weird.

    Beer, liquor, wine, or something else?

    Beer & Liquor when I have the extra bones… I like all the whiskey’s usually with 7-up or strait up on the rocks. Depends on if I’m drinking by the bottle at home or out on the town with buddies. Although at a certain age (I’ll be damned if I know when it happened…) our wives quit letting us go out drinking without them, probably because we weren’t good about knowing when to come home.

    Favourite food?

    I’m a meat and potatoes kind of person, definitely a carnivore… so steaks, chicken, sea food, I like it all!

    Favourite TV show?

    Burn Notice is the only one I have to watch all the episodes… the wife and I also have really enjoyed the True Blood series… see above LMAO

    3 favourite bands?

    Toby Keith; Metallica; Charlie Daniels (Old but always good)


    I'm so far behind... I thought I was first.
