What's Happening

Guess That Gamer (JUL)...

I hinted that the first 6-episodes of the Guess that Gamer feature had something in common. Nobody ever really mentioned what they thought it was, but it might come into play with the next six. In what will probably be the most challenging episode to date, chances are you won't know who it is unless you actually do a little investigative research. Will this finally be the week that Mojomonkey12's perfect score (6 of 6) chalks up a loss, or will he continue to impress the community with his keen insight and uncanny ability of figuring out who the mystery member is. The clues are there.

*NOTE* The July mystery member is none of the people listed above.

As a reminder, the blog is basically a Game Informer community edition of the "20 Questions" game...

Twenty Questions is a spoken parlor game which encourages deductive reasoning and creativity. It originated in the United States and escalated in popularity during the late 1940s when it became the format for a successful weekly radio quiz program. In the traditional game, one player is chosen to be the answerer. That person chooses a subject but does not reveal this to the others. All other players are questioners. They each take turns asking a question which can be answered with a simple "Yes" or "No." In variants of the game multiple state answers may be included such as the answer "Maybe." The answerer answers each question in turn. If a questioner guesses the correct answer, that questioner wins and becomes the answerer for the next round. If 20 questions are asked without a correct guess, then the answerer has stumped the questioners and gets to be the answerer for another round.


You may recall, the questions are generic and short enough so the answers aren't glaringly obvious who the person is. I'm sure you can identify many of the bloggers and commenters here by their writing style, but with a one word answer, obviously that's not quite as revealing.  So yeah, short questions = short answers. Good luck. You'll need it. And with each of the questions, I provide a comment after the fact, just to kind of throw my thoughts on the answer into the mix - for the mystery gamer and the rest of the community to ponder.

Let's roll...

Guess That Gamer (JUL) - 20 Questions

1. Favorite Game Informer (2012) cover released this year?

Halo 4.

(Halo 4 was a great cover. But I'm going to go with Assassin's Creed, the one with the flag. Awesome.)


2. What best describes you - hero, villain or sidekick?

Sidekick.

(Okay, a follow up question...are you more like Robin, Chewbacca or Luigi? Don't answer that.)

3. E3 or Comic-Con?

Comic-Con.

(Hmm. That's a little surprising. I suppose since E3 is a major video game industry event, I'd pick it.)

4. Do you watch intros, cut-scenes and credits - start to finish (pick one: always, sometimes, never)?

Always.

(Yup. Me too. Sometimes I even reload it just to watch it again. Except the credits.)

5. The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spiderman or The Avengers?

The Avengers.

(Amen! Batman, Spiderman, Superman...you can keep the "man" heroes.)


6. Favorite day / time to play video games?

All week.

(Ah, I like your logic. Great answer.)

7. Do you prefer wired or wireless controllers?

Wireless.

(I used to think they were great, but man I go through some batteries and the rechargeable ones suck.)

8. Where do you purchase most of your new games from?

Gamestop.

(Unless I buy it off Steam, I would have to agree.)

9. Do you read Game Informer front to back or back to front?

Front to Back.

(I see...well, for whatever reason, I have to read magazines backwards - back to front.)

10. Favorite event in the Olympics?

Snowboarding.

(Not badminton? I dunno, I'm still advocating for video games to be added to the line-up.)


11. Favorite character from the Mass Effect series?

Garrus.

(What? Seriously? Oh wait, you said Garrus...yeah, I can agree with that. Not too surprising.)

12. Favorite President?

Abraham Lincoln.

(An admirable choice. The fact that he is also a vampire hunter makes him that much cooler.)

13. Rebel Alliance or Galactic Empire?

Galactic Empire.

(Yeah buddy. There aren't a lot of us that would admit that, heh heh. The rebels are terrorists!)

14. Scariest game you've ever played?

Dead Space.

(I can certainly attest to that. Although the ghast from Minecraft makes a particularly unsettling noise.)

15. How long have you been a member of Game Informer Online?

Since December.

(Really? I would have guessed much longer.)


16. Grapefruit or Orange?

Orange.

(Are you curious why I asked this? Actually I prefer grapefruit even though I already knew your answer.)

17. Describe your profile with one word.

Image.

(Or maybe images.)

18. Call of Duty or Battlefield?

Call of Duty.

(You have drawn the line in the sand, my friend. I like them both, but lean towards Battlefield.)

19. Burger King or Arby's?

Burger King.

(Curly fries with cheese are certainly delicious, but hard to beat a Whopper.)

20. Have you taken an arrow to the knee (or played Skyrim)?

Yes I have.

(Well, I'm just glad you lived to tell us about it. I heard that can be a very debilitating injury.)


This concludes the seventh edition of Guess that Gamer. I hope everyone enjoyed it and I look forward to the guesses. Remember, you get out of the community what you put into it, so join in on the fun and take a guess. Who knows, maybe episode eight will feature you? I'll post the answer in a day or so.

Cheers.
