Howdy fellow GTN members. This is a few days late than intended to post. I was late getting questions to our interviewee.

Name:
Sith Rick

DLW: What do you do for a living?

SR: I am in the printing business, I run a 5 color 40" Heidelberg printing press. Im currently the Print Shop manager at Park West Gallery. The company specializes in cruse ship auctions and I print sales marketing material to get people to attend the auctions. Ive been here for 16 years.

DLW: What's your favourite feature on GTN?

SR: Badges!

DLW: Would you class yourself as a casual, recreational or professional gamer?

SR: Right now I would say im more of a casual gamer, I have gone through some rough times lately and haven't been very interested in gaming. I will get back at it sooner or later but will probably never be an every day gamer like I was for the last 5 or 6 years. I do miss that achievement unlocked sound though!

DLW: How long have you been playing video games?

SR: I have been playing since the Atari 2600, yep im old! I have had every major console since then

DLW: What is your all-time favorite game?

SR: Thats a tough one, So many great games over the years...but I think I will say the game that hooked me for life is The Legend of Zelda.

DLW: What's your favourite game genre?

SR: I would say RPGs are my favorite but sadly I also tend to put them off because of the time sink to play other games. That is what the down side of this achievement thing is for me. It has totally changed the way I game, but also made me try some games I would have otherwise overlooked.

DLW: Are you looking forward to any new releases?

SR: Mostly Battlefield 4 and Forza5. Titan fall, Destiny and The Division too but they are much farther out.


DLW: Xbox One or PS4?

SR: I will stay with the Xbox, I love what they are doing with the Kinect, smart glass and the integration between phone, tablet, and PC

DLW: What would you tell people about GTN if you were trying to get them to join?

SR: I would tell them that if they like sites that have cool stats and a great community to definitely check it out and I dare you to not get addicted to the badges!

DLW: Is there anything you would like to see added to the site?

SR: There have been a lot of new members over the last few months with lots of great ideas. Eric is doing a terrific job of implementing them into the site. Amazing how quickly he gets things done around here! I guess the one thing I would like to see is the ability and tools for anyone to create an event or challenge and easily be able to track things without haveing to have coding knowledge.

Well there you have it folks. The man, the myth, the Sith Rick.

Come back next for our next interview at the same bat time and the same bat channel....

Great interview. Good to get to know the community outside of the gaming aspect.

BACK TO TOPIC

Was it the original Zelda that hooked you in? If so, me too. I played it at a friends house, and had to have it. I was playing my rusty old SEGA master system (Yeah, I'm old too lol) and Wonder Boy 3, but once I saw Zelda, I knew I was missing something. Thanks fro bringing that old memory back!
Great interview. You got any kids?

LOL they have helped me a few times but they are not into achievements very much and most of the time they are playing COD of which I dont play. The older boy branches out a bit more and now plays Battlefield more than COD, but still hard to get him to leave his friends to help out.

I have thought about making them do long boring boosting sessions for me when they are in trouble though, but I usually boost with the same group of friends and I dont want my boys to annoy them as they did when we were sharing my xbox and account.
