She won't play just any game but is a completionist. She hates odd numbered achievements and is also a lover of pie.

I've been gaming since I was seven, back in the days of the Sega Mega Drive. From then I moved to a PSX in 1997 and then a PS2 in 2002 before making a big switch over to the Xbox 360 in 2007. I also own an original Xbox, a DS, Wii, PSP and PS3.

For me, I love the 360 and yes, achievements are addictive, but I'm not going to play just any game to up my score. I love playing games I want to play and those are the ones I will complete. Sometimes I wish games didn't have achievements simply because of the crazy things I've ended up doing to get a particular achievement (I'm looking at you, Seriously 3.0). However, then I think it's worth it because now I have a nice new shiny achievement that shows how awesome (or sad) I am lol

My favourite game at the moment would be Assassin's Creed X (where X is the current game in the series), and even though I've finished it, I could easily play it again. Some of my other favourite games throughout the years would be...

Xbox 360: Battlefield 3, Burnout Paradise, Dance Central 1/2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Driver: San Francisco, GTA IV, L.A. Noire, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Portal 2, Prototype 1/2, Red Dead Redemption, Red Faction Guerrilla, Saints Row: The Third, Split/Second, SSX, X-Men Origins: Wolverine

PS2: 24, Burnout 3, Burnout Revenge, GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, SSX PSX: Sheep, Dog N' Wolf Mega Drive: Mega Bomberman and the Sonic Series, but mainly Sonic 3

One other game I've loved but never owned the console for was GoldenEye on the N64. My uncle had the console and let me borrow it for a summer break from school one year. That was all I played!

When I'm not gaming I work as a software developer. When I'm not working or gaming I hang out with my friends, go to the cinema, go shopping, do latin dancing, do some artwork, some writing, read sometimes or catch up on my TV shows.

All hail pie :)



Favourites

Genre
I can't really decide on one but I love action-adventure games, first person shooters and arcade style racing games. I'm at my best when I'm playing something from these genres :) An interesting fact about me is that I only got into first person shooters during this generation of consoles.

Series/IP
Those who know me best won't even have to guess this one! I absolutely adore the Assassin's Creed series. I got the first game back in 2007 for Christmas. I had heard very little about it but I was intrigued by the idea of being an assassin so I picked it up as part of my Christmas game buying spree. As it turns out it was the only game I ended up playing over the holidays ;)

My liking for this series came as a surprise because I don't normally like games that are set in the past. I even got into the series even more when Ubisoft started integrating the whole Assassins vs. Templars story into actual events in history.

I love how well designed and free flowing the games are to the point where I feel almost invincible. I love sneaking around, getting to my target and swiftly making my getaway. I love wandering around the beautifully crafted places and listening to the suitably placed music made especially for the games.

It's just the perfect series for me :)

Male character
Ezio Auditore da Firenze from the Assassins Creed series. Who else? ;)

Female character
GLaDOS from the Portal series. She's just so wonderfully evil!

What you consider yourself being an expert in when it comes to games
If it wasn't clear from above, anything Assassin's Creed related and I'm your girl ;)
