Welcome to round five of Meet the Staff. :D

Here you can get to know the LBPC Staff more by asking us questions and the like. We'll edit your post and answer your question that way, using the following colors:

Site Administrators:


Site-Wide Moderators:

jwwPhotos (this color as of 8/24/2013)

Ready...... GO! :hatsack:

P.S. I brought over a few of the unanswered posts from the Meet the Staff IV (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?72000-Meet-the-Staff-IV) thread.

Do you prefer indie games, or mainstream games?

Depends. Typically indie games but there really isn't anything quite like a quality mainstream game when it's been done right.

I mainly play whatever my daughter wants me to play with her. Between her and LBPC/LBP that's all the time I have. :)

I play mainstream more than anything but if there is a cool indie one I'd be up for playing that. It's more about the game, not who made it for me.

For gaming, console, PC, or mobile?

I'll say handheld first (as in Vita/PSP), console second, and mobile third (as in smartphone/iPad)

Depends, probably console then mobile.

Well, mostly console but I do game on my ipad too. I'm thinking of buying a new gaming PC just so I can play Diablo 3 and get Skyrim mods (and Dawnguard.)

Would LBPC be a better place if I visited it more often? :p

It would be nothing short of magical.

Let's see, give it a try.

I enjoy your company, so yep, it would in my opinion.

11-16-2012, 12:17 AM
So... considering I haven't seen schm0 and Aya in forever, should there be some sort of limit for how long someone could leave the forum before they are decommissioned? Just saying, if they're not currently doing their modly duties... But what do I know.

Stop reading my to-do list. :p To answer your question more directly, yes - I am monitoring roles and responsibilities sitewide with activity level in mind.

Anyway, do you think there should be more mods?

Jury is still out on that one. ;)

Not trying to suggest I should be, I probably would either abuse the power or not use the power, but seems kind of like there should always be at least one mod on.

Ideally, there should always be at least one mod on, yes. That makes more sense in concept than in practice for the most part, but it's something we are always striving for.

I've been told I'm on to much already. ;)

Not trying to say you're doing a bad job, I would never insult my two mommies or those other guys, and I'm not sure we even need any more but eh. Just thought I'd ask. /shrug

Never hurts to ask, and thanks. :)

11-16-2012, 01:11 AM
So Taffey, when will you start making us more cookies? :kz:


11-16-2012, 01:17 AM
Kittens or cookies?

Kitten cookies. (http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/hprofile-ak-prn1/41609_122907367750884_4694_n.jpg)

Agreed! (T- you sniped me again.)

:p *adjusts rifle scope*

I can't have a kitty here.... so I survive by eating cookies.

11-16-2012, 01:18 AM
Have you ever thought that Rock asked too many questions about the inner workings of the site? :rolleyes:

Heavens no. I was just finishing up preparing him a copy of our balance sheet and cash flow statement anyway. ;)

Maybe with that in mind since Rock is in college and thinking about career goals, you can take a shot at suggesting what you think he might be good at. :p

Oh! Well he should certainly go for a foreign language (http://www.councilofelrond.com/content/guide-to-learning-elvish/) of some kind even if it's only a minor. He might want to consider pursuing public relations (http://www.kidzworld.com/article/20231-becoming-a-disney-mascot), marketing (http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/thumblarge_610/1307329428u86w0v.jpg), or even environmental studies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waste_collector). I really think he would excel at political science (http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/About/General/2010/6/9/1276103514764/darth-vader-006.jpg) though.

I, for one, am glad you use your powers for good Taffey. :star:

11-16-2012, 02:30 AM
... Taffey, you... I love you.

11-16-2012, 05:14 AM
There's some new smilies isn't there? ;)


Why... It seems there might be! I wonder how they got there. The Smiley Fairy must be real! If only there was a way to know what the new smilies were.

Wait? What?!? Why doesn't anyone tell me these things! Gah, just the other day I totally needed a :meh: face and had to settle for a :( one instead. Freaking code :ninja: types.

:3Love this one!:3

^ I know right? :3 Well it seems we have a sneaky little elf puttering around and giving us smilies, but they're all :X about it. :|

What is the process for finding the dimensions of the rectangle of largest area that can be inscribed in an equilateral triangle of side L if one side of the rectangle lies on the base of the triangle?


Oh no... my nemesis.... math! *runs*

That is to say, will you please determine the answer, then go into detail on said answer, both in the result and the process to reach that result?

Oh that. I'm pretty sure the answer is classified.

Please, won't you do my homework?

Yes, absolutely! I'd be thrilled to won't do your homework.

And what is this...google you speak of?

It's like delicious Internet candy wrapped in bacon.

Oh boy I love bacon! And Candy! Yay Google.

Does someone have a dog I can just say ate my homework?

Yes, I have two of them - they don't eat much though, maybe one page. So you'd have to say your homework was one page long and it was eaten by two very small dogs.

Taffey is awesomesauce wrapped in epic bacon.

11-17-2012, 12:42 AM
I've heard over a million different answers for this, but I must know your opinion. Why did the chicken cross the road?

What the chicken actually did was to breach foldspace by exploitation of the suspensor-nullification properties of the Holtzman effect. Of course, the non-deterministic nature of quantum projections like this require a certain minimum level of prescience to achieve, unless a secondary low-drain field is applied. In other words it was the road that crossed the chicken, driven by subatomic field attractions.

Hmmm... I must admit that left me a little stunned.

I know exactly what you mean. It really puts chicken nuggets into perspective.

11-17-2012, 10:54 PM
What does your brain secretly want you to do when a pessimistic hipster gets in your way?

Exactly the opposite of when an optimistic mainstreamer stays out of my way.

I'm getting too old to even identify hipsters nowadays. One of the benefits of getting older I might add.

^ Word.

11-18-2012, 02:26 PM
I've heard rumors that Batman lurks around this site. IS THIS TRUE??? Where can I find him! :kz:

Totally true. Try sending up a Bat Signal. Works in the movies. ;)

11-18-2012, 02:56 PM
I've heard rumors that Batman lurks around this site. IS THIS TRUE??? Where can I find him! :kz:

He was hired by Mm... check this thread


posts #1, #3 & #4

That's just.... outstanding. Nice find. ;)

11-19-2012, 12:14 AM
Ok for the serious questions....

First of all, which cookie is your favorite?

Still love the M&S Extremely Chocolatey chocolate rolls right now. You can never go wrong with Chocolate when I'm around.

Overall, it has to be Oreos. There is a bakery in my town though that makes molasses cookies to die for.


If you were in the Hunger Games, choose 1 regular member from LBPC that you would go with. To be like, buddies. In the arena. :kz:

I haven't seen the film or read the books yet... *runs*

CogMonkey. It would be just one more step towards us taking over the world. Also, because we registered in the same month, we're probably from the same district anyway.

What is this? :X

That's what happens to sackpeople who ask too many questions. ;)

It's somewhere between :meh: and :ninja:, but not exactly.

11-19-2012, 12:26 AM
Because I don't think it deserves it's own thread... could you PLEASE just get rid of the awards system? It's buggy, and getting those notifications just gets my hope up that someone messaged me. Kind of useless, too.

I'm looking into how best to handle the awards system. It is admittedly a bit buggy, and don't even get me started on the points market. Rest assured it's most certainly on my list, but it probably won't be the very first thing I look into fixing.

11-19-2012, 11:41 AM
Now that we have a new admin...


Reply hazy, try again later.

12-21-2012, 01:36 PM
Why'd you clsoe the "Games you are currently playing" thread? >_> <_< <_< >_>

It was open earlier. Don't know what happened. It's open now. :)

Yay! Thank you, Mommy!

12-21-2012, 03:05 PM
Do you like Jetpacks? :3

Yes :)

I like the idea of them.... probably would never actually use one though.

Come on! They have touch ... TOUCH!

12-21-2012, 05:14 PM
hello Taffey and site moderation team, happy to meet you all :)

*waves* hi :)


Hi :)

12-22-2012, 03:25 AM
Are you going to pig out and sleep in this break?

Why only do that during breaks? Yes though, I will be doing both as often as possible.

Going to? Heavens no. I already have! :p

Break? What break?

I work in risk management within the IT organization for... No, that sounds almost as terribly boring as it is. I'm a... uh... I'm a stuntman! Yeah, that's it. I lit myself on fire and crashed a car just this morning.

Why did you join up?

I had questions, rtm223, OCK, Gilgamesh and many others had the answers I needed. Simple as that really.

Husband forced me to. :)

A lot of folks from the LBP forum on GameFAQs made the change and they talked me into it.

How would you explain your role in the LBP community?

Um... that's complicated. Den mother mostly.

Like Morgy said, it's complicated.

If LBP is Fantasy Island, I'm Tattoo.

How do you plan on winning?


Winning what?

Cheating, of course.

What are your favorite games? Movies? Music?

RPG's mostly but I like all sorts of games. Sci Fi/Horror movies are my favorite. Music I'm all over the place. Mostly 90's Industrial/New Wave/Goth stuff.

Different things at different times.


Favorite color?




What seriously annoys you?

People who don't listen.

Runny Mac & Cheese. HATE IT.

Not going to say.

Outside of LBP, your hobbies are?

Playing other games, making beaded jewelry, drawing, watching movies.

Tae Kwon Do, photography,skiing, making jewelry, drawing, playing the guitar and piano and a few more things.

Sometimes it's RC cars, but most frequently I'll have to say cooking.

What qualities do you bring to a team?

I try and see things from multiple points of view.


It's a secret.

How much Survivor have you seen?

Never saw one episode. Nope. Won a betting pool one season for it but have never watched it.

A few episodes.

I've seen the movie.

Describe yourself in one sentence:

When I'm good, I'm very very good, but when I'm bad it's best not to be around other human beings.

I have two speeds, slow and stop, and slow is out of order.


What's the secret to happiness?

Didn't think there was a secret to it, just be happy. Beats the alternative.

Double Stuf Oreos.

Depends on what your seeking.

What is the wildest dream you've had recently?

Trying to escape from a team of assassins with high powered sniper rifles while getting my Christmas presents through customs at the airport.... I have anxieties ok! lol

I dreamed that I was at work, but I wasn't. The wildest thing about it is that it isn't wild at all.

Who sleeps?

Pretend we know absolutely nothing about you. Tell us in 1 sentence why you're better than the other site staff.

That is impossible, I'm not.

Why would I butter the other site staff? They aren't toast. Oh, BETTER. No idea how to answer that.

I'm not better and Taffey if you even TRY to butter me...watch out! :)

12-22-2012, 03:55 PM
As far as I can tell, all the current staff members are in the USA (or at least North America). I know Aya is a brit but he's pretty inactive and he doesn't actually have a blue name any more :cry:
And while the current mod team is doing a great job, surely we could do with at least one more active staff member from a different corner of the world? Who is there to keep the streets of LBPC clean and safe when all the mods are in bed? :cry:

I've been living in the UK for the last year and a half so I try and cruise the site during daylight hours there. :) I'm just back in NA for Christmas at the moment.

What Morgy said. ;)

Who sleeps?

12-22-2012, 04:35 PM
I nominate me to be a mod.

Alright, alright, you're now a mod. Here's a picture of the new you:


Nice, uh.... outfit. Really. *stifles a laugh*

I promise each and every one of you that you won't regret it...

... Cause you'll be dead. Muhahaha!

Also, Ayas not a mod no more? Can't say I'm surprised. In phone do cant check to see if schm0 is blue anymore

No, neither of them are currently members of the site staff. No ill feelings of any kind - they're just retired. :) I'm very grateful indeed for everything they've done for the site over the years.

12-22-2012, 06:06 PM
If you were a cookie and forced to eat yourself what would you be?

I'd go cannibal if I was chocolate anything.

Yep, chocolate is the way to go. Also, peanut butter anything.


If you were forced to play a bad game for 1 day straight what would it be?

I don't really know any bad games.... um, I guess any fps out there would qualify as bad for me.

I'll go with Spice Girls - it'd make for some great stories later.

Anything that's not LBP.

If you were to go back to college what would you want to learn?

Digital 3D Sculpting/Maya

I'd like to learn how to directly program my brain with knowledge, just like in The Matrix.

I'd want to study the handbook that should come with every baby!

If you were to get diabetes what would you over eat? Post pics if you can.

Chocolate. I can't find a reason to go on without it.

Grilled cheese. NOM



When going to the movies what movie would you prefer seeing?

Sci-Fi horror are my favorites.

Ditto. Fantasy stuff works too, namely anything Tolkien.

Anything with a good storyline, special effects and a good ending.

01-03-2013, 01:09 AM
In Meet the Staff IV, Taffey said that the process to become an admin worked much like the Hunger Games. Please describe how this was for you...

I *twitches* really don't remember *twitches* very much about the *twitches* process.

I don't want to say too much about it, but the worst part was having to wear a dress that was on fire.

Total memory loss

How did you survive wihout cookies for that long?

Didn't, they were snuck in.

mr Radical 5601
01-19-2013, 08:32 PM
If you had to sing karaoke, what would be your # 1 song choice?

Gave up singing karaoke a long time ago.

If you were a Power Ranger, what color would you be?


01-23-2013, 11:38 AM
What would be your favorite game of all time?

One I could win. :)

01-23-2013, 05:40 PM
We should totally do a "Meet the Spotlight Crew" LOL. But Seriously... ;)

08-24-2013, 05:02 PM
So... who remembers me? :P

Remember you doing what? :p

Uncle Louie?

I do :)

> Just in general.

Yes :)

> ^_^


Seems like this thread hasn't seen any use since I was last on. :(
Do you guys like finding a question after months of not having any while just skimming over the forums? :D

I was kinda happy to see one

Likewise. 8)

I only check it once and awhile since it got so quiet in here.

> Yay

So uh, anyone played Dungeons & Dragons?


Long time ago, loved it. I've played a lot of D&D-ruleset-based games since then.

I got Chronicles of Mystara on my ps3 so yep, played it in the past on paper and on my ps3 now.

Who's buying a PS4?

I will at some point when there is something worthwhile to play with the thing!

> Idk man, It seems like there's going to be a lot of good stuff coming for it!

Me me me me me me me me me me me me I am!! I'm not excited for it at all. No, no, not at all. *twitch*

Already pre-ordered. :D

Any specific thoughts on the community if a LBP3 comes out?

Not really. I guess I mostly hope folks will enjoy the game and be nice to everyone. Wish it would be like when I first started with LBP1, but that is probably a bit optimistic.

For sure some kind of LBP game will come out, and I am looking forward to the community revival/growth that always accompanies new releases.

08-24-2013, 07:51 PM
Do you guys ever eat peanuts in real life?

Actually I do! I love them salted and in the shell. Just seem more fresh that way ...but not the eVil lord brand.. :p

Regularly, with my favorite type being boiled. Peanuts are my friends in all of their forms.

Yep I do.

09-26-2013, 06:17 PM
Lol, you eat more peanuts than me :p

So, any chance you can just get rid of lbpcentral.com?


No, not like that, I mean the homepage! Silly.

Like have it be so when you type lbpcentral.com in the address bar, it takes you straight to the forum index? Because I've been going on on the library computer a lot (like now, for instance) and have to log in on the forum index anyway because you can't log in on the home page, so it's only an extra click but you never update the home page anyway. I mean, yeah, you update it with the Spotlights, but most people just go straight to the forum for that. In fact, people come here just for the forums, so unless you'll be starting to update the home page and actually integrate it into the site, can we just skip that whole thing? Not too big a deal, just an extra click for me and makes newbies wonder why it hasn't been updated in four years but not too big really. Just a small problem, not worth its own thread.

Dunno... I think it was a feature with vBulletin 4 that never made sense to me either. Especially since we never used it. We can look into it though. :)

09-27-2013, 01:20 AM
I kinda like the idea of the homepage, so far just not the execution which happens to make it a bit useless, if we gave it a facelift I think it could be pretty neat. You could have pictures (or video if there is one) and a lbp.me link to all the Spotlighted levels rotating through, maybe a couple of the Spotlighters' quotes there too. List of the 'Also from the spotlight' with lbp.me links, List of most recent wiki entries, contests, I dunno just throwing ideas out.

Of course someone would have to dedicate there time and skill, I would if I could but I can't so I shan't.

Nice ideas though! Thanks for sharing!

OH RIGHT, questions! :blush:
If you could create any game you wanted, what would the game be?

A fun one! lol I dunno.. maybe a combo of BF3 and Portal 2. Wish I had made LBP though. ;)

One that helped people express their creativity... so I guess LBP. Too bad MM already made it. lol

Is there anything you like more about LBP than LBP2?

Keep in mind I love the new chip / logic tech in LBP2..

The lighting engine!! LBP1 was so much cooler to play with in regards to the lighting. LBP2 is just too harsh. I loved how you could saturate and make materials glow with colored light or fogged light. You really could make some marvelous moods. Not that you can't in LBP2, but just not the same. Hidden glowy led's and gassed spots really would make some amazing effects. Plus you had background and foreground lighting.

Agree 100% with jww. Lights were better in 1.

What do you see in this ink blot?

ACK!! I cut myself shaving!!!! ..no wait. An elephant? Elephant / pig? Man bear pig!!!

Cartoony vampire bat.... or two parrot heads mirroring each other. Do I pass the test?!?

09-27-2013, 03:43 AM
I know that a major change to the website's design would be quite hard to accomplish but yeah, some parts of the web feel really outdated. Anyway...

1) Have you ever played / heard of the Zero Escape series?

No! Is it on PS3 or PC?

Is that the level series that guy made with all those doors you go through? If not, no.

2) If you had to finish with all humanity, what weapon would you use?

Toaster oven? You mean like a zombie invasion? Maybe a shotgun.

If I'm the last human and have to survive? Um... probably a machete since it doesn't rely on ammo, but I'd really like a shotgun handy too.

3) Why do earphones get so messy and strangle themselves when left alone?

I hate cords!! They do, they have a mind of their own. Even when wrapped nicely they go off and tangle themselves when not in use. My fav pair for travel is those Sony ear buds. Not the best sound of headphones I own (another fav topic of mine), but I love the little cord winder storage case.

They are practicing Yoga.

10-02-2013, 06:50 PM
People don't post on LBPC enough anymore for my taste :( Fix it!

Well.. seems there have been some more lately... maybe not the kind you would have hoped for. lol

Perhaps we could give a peanut for every post? ;)

10-05-2013, 11:40 AM
Time for some random questions.
Favorite soft drink?

Diet Coke

Dr. Pepper

Are you a fan of Rooster Teeth?

Actually never heard of it. :blush:

No idea what it is.

10-05-2013, 09:11 PM
How come French fries are not considered vegetables, since they are just deep fried potatoes?

Potatoes are considered stem tubers and thus not a vegetable. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuber

They are veggies in my house. ;)

.999 (Continued) = 1 True or False? Explain.

False.. unless you are rounding up.

aaaaahhh! Math! *runs*

What is the value of this site in florins?

Not sure you can convert sack cloth to florins.

florins? Um... I can barely convert British Pounds to US Dollars.

If you were digitized like Tron and put on the internet what site would you visit first?

The bank.

Google.... because I could go anywhere from there. :)

What would you do with a million dollars?

Buy a Ferrari and a larger house.

Hire a chef, a maid and sleep in for the rest of my life. I'm a simple girl.

If Bobby has 5 whales and Sally has 2 sharks how many penguins are they eating?

None, they are running from the sharks.

Shark! *runs* I fear them

What's your favorite song? Movie? Show?

That is tough.. there are so many favorites. Favorite show is probably either South Park or Top Gear (UK version)

I have a lot of fav songs... probably one by Depeche Mode or Sisters of Mercy right now. Movie - LOTR (all 3) Show - True Blood

How much does the site Administrator get paid?

Twice as much as I get. ..and I get 0.

Not nearly enough, if at all.

Finally, may I have a cookie? :3

Sure!! Take two!

I haz no cookies. Taffey likely will share one of his. :)

10-06-2013, 10:24 PM
Time to ask whatever comes off the top of my head...

Do everyone's Tetsudini-ized turtle avatars inspire you? They sure inspire me.

lol... nah, though I did have a sudden curiosity concerning turtle soup. :p

He is pretty cute.

Are you looking forward to LBP Hub?



PS4 or XBox One?

Seriously? ..PS4, as long as there is an LBP to play on it. ;)

I think I'm going to have both. PS4 is pre-ordered already.

Has answering so many questions gotten on your nerves?

RAAAAAAWWR!! ..nope, not at all. :p

Nah, although keeping all this BB text straight has my eyes a little swimmy.

Do animated GIF avatars annoy you?

Nope.. I usually have one.

Not usually. Depends on how obnoxious they are.

Are you sure these turtle avatars aren't inspiring you? I mean, come on now. My turtle avatar has turtles fading, for heaven's sake.

Inspiring me to what? lol ... they are very ghostly, but nope not really.

It's very nice, yes. :)

10-07-2013, 03:38 AM
If you won 1trillion Dollars and you were only allowed to buy 1 thing what would it be? You cant buy giftcards or money with it; it has to be objects that you can use.

Stock, or maybe an amusement park. lol

I'd buy the UK and make a theme park out of it. :p

10-07-2013, 07:48 PM
Ok legitimate questions:

Do you have a doggie?

My parents got a Golden Retriever before I left home. I think she replaced me.

Nope... we don't.

Nope, I have two cats.

If you did have a dog what would you call it?

um... a dachshund named Minnie.

It would depend on the type of dog and the personality

No idea. Considering it takes me hours to name a Sim, you might want to try coming back later and asking me again.

What sort of music do you listen to?

Industrial, pop, electronica, rock, classical.... pretty much anything but rap and country

Pretty much the same, though I do mostly love rock and heavy metal. However I do like certain songs that are many other styles

Mostly video game soundtracks.

What are you watching on TV atm?


F1 Racing... oh, you mean like a series? Top Gear UK, Wheeler Dealers, Face Off (http://www.syfy.com/faceoff) (the special effects reality show on the SyFy channel)

Doctor Who, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Family Guy, Not Going Out.

Did you go to university, what did you study?

Yes, BA in Graphic Design

Computer Science

Yes, Multimedia Computing and Systems.

Why did you choose your username?

it's a nickname my friend in college gave me and 25 for my birthday

It's my domain name. jwwPhotos.com My initials are jww and besides being a Systems Software Engineer by day, I am a professional photographer and take photos of racing and automotive events for my "vacations".

It's my PSN. Which is a rather ingenious combination of my first name and my surname's initial.

10-07-2013, 09:30 PM
Pancakes or eating your left arm?


Pancakes, I'd taste disgusting.

What made you join the site?

Pancakes!! ...oh wait.. Umm.. it seemed pretty darn friendly and full of LBP creators I liked. :)

The questions I had about create mode were answered here by people much smarter than I. :) They seemed nice too so I signed up.

What type of phone do you have?

iPhone 4s

iphone 4 and a pay as you go Tesco one - both black



Ah! Math! *runs* (I agree it's 5)

Favorite smilie?

Ummmm... This one. :)

it's a dragon - love it! :p

(If any) favorite sports team?

IU Basketball, the Hoosiers. Pro... Pacers and the Colts

By state law I am required to love the Green Bay Packers.

Sorry if any questions have already been said.

10-17-2013, 05:59 PM
I might as well post here considering that I never have and the moderators just totally love me, right? :3

Anyways first real question:

1. If you could change one thing about LBPC what would it be?

Not sure.. Oh! ..make it so I could get here from work via my PC not my iPhone. It is blocked since it is a games forum.

um... I guess more pictures. I like images.

Add a dedicated news blog section! Come on... You know you want to... ;)

2. If LBPC was to have a mascot other then sackboy what would it be and why?

How could it not be a sackboy? Maybe my sackboy character? :p

I vote for Kitsune.

It's just got to be a Sackboy or a Sackgirl! It wouldn't be LittleBigPlanet without the Sackfolk!

3. What is the scariest movie you have ever seen?

Evil Dead 2 .. Oh wait, I found that funny. I guess Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Probably Jaws. It's brilliant and I love it but it scares the heck out of me.

Errr... I don't really find movies to be that scary. Sure, they can use music and sounds to make anyone jump but to me, it just seems like they're so predictable these days. For that same reason, I'm normally not interested in horror movies.

4. Do you love me?
Magic 8 ball says, "Ask again later". :p

Can you dance?

I'm sure you have your own things that make you special.

What should I do for my 10,000th post?

Hope that I don't delete a few hundred? :p

Curse you... Oh, also, any chance you can make it so spoilers work on mobile?

Not without rewriting the browser software on the mobile. lol They are not interpreting the js script properly.

What was your first job?

During my summers off from college, I worked with my Dad at a print shop that did letterpress and offset printing. It was kinda cool as I got to learn how to run all the presses and such. Also since I was into photography and had a darkroom at the time, I took over and ran the darkroom and copy camera, make ready and plate making for the offset presses.

I worked at a concessions stand at Milwaukee County Stadium grilling sausages, pouring beer and soda and serving all sorts of junk food during Milwaukee Brewers baseball games. Did that for 5 years. Learned a lot, worked really hard and learned the value of staying in college so I wouldn't have to work there forever.

My first job was just before I went to college, working in a grocery store as a cashier and generally worked my way up the ranks to manager until I left that to do what I do now. :)

Ooh, Steven's answering questions now? Ok... Tell my everything you know about MM's PS4 project ;)

Haha, it doesn't quite work like that. I have a don't ask about unannounced titles and content, don't ask for crowns and don't ask for Team Picks clause for my replies. ;)

I know that you're silly to ask. :p

But technically, you did announce you were working on a PS4 project at the PS4 reveal... But you're right jww, I am silly to ask. Oh well XD

..and even sillier now. :p

How and when did you find out about LittleBigPlanet?

TheCountessZ and I went shopping for an HD tv and decided that we really wanted to play BluRay's. Well.. one of the best rated and most cost effective players at the time was a PS3. While we were at it we figured... "Hey.. it plays games" and I did a bit of research on some of the best games for the PS3. Little Big Planet was the top rated game at the time and we snagged it. That was November 2008 right when it first came out. We became so addicted that for Thanksgiving, we decided to stay home and just play LBP. We got carry out from an Italian place the day before and warmed it up for our dinner. lol

I was bored of playing Oblivion for over a year and had bought Mirror's Edge. I got stuck in the ship section and was getting really frustrated so I decided to go online to look for a new game to buy. I ended up finding videos of these guys who made a very crude airplane takes out buildings level (which sort of made me sick) but I thought the little knit guy was cute so I dug a little deeper and thought, ya, I like platformers. I'll give it a try. I had zero clue it had a create mode or what it was about really. Hard to believe now but yep, I fell for a cute stuffed doll and the rest is history. :)

I can't actually recall the precise moment that I found out about LittleBigPlanet. All I know is that I grew up loving both platforming games and games that allowed you to create your own content. Similarly I've always enjoyed persistant games that continually update with new content.

When I heard prior to its release that LittleBigPlanet would allow an entire community of creators to create levels and develop a never-ending world of new places to explore and new adventures to be had, I just knew that I had to pick up a copy on day one.

So after picking up my copy and arriving in my Pod for the first-ever time, I put on my Week 1 T-Shirt and set course for the first of many adventures on LittleBigPlanet! :)

Why isn't Steven Pink? Oh, right, Lady Luck stole it. Still odd.

First come first serve! :p

So what's my actual question... um... Why do you think I still come here after 5 years despite not playing LBP2 in like 2 or 3 years?

To drive me nuts? :rolleyes: Just kidding.. I suspect like many that you enjoy the community that we have here. Now get back to your chores!!

Also, why am I so excited for MM's PS4 project despite the fact I know I'd get bored and depressed before I can even make anything?

Ahh.. I see we are back to all your questions being about you. :whatever:

..heck I dunno, maybe you need to focus more. We are all naturally excited for whatever Mm does. Can't help it if you get bored so easily. That is something YOU have to work on doncha think?.

LBP2 or LBPVita?

ARRRRGH!! Love them both, but I guess I had more fun in LBP2.

You can't make me choose! It's like being a parent. I love them all equally. :)

What's your favorite genre (other than "LBP", which is, I daresay, a whole genre in of itself)?

I like racing sims and first person shooters.

Platforming and RPGs.

What's the favorite avatar, other than yours, that you've run across on this forum?

Probably Taffey's during his tributes to the movie Fifth Element.

Realises that he's forgotten all the avatars... That's right... All of them!

Do you prefer, for handheld gaming, the Vita or the 3DS?


I use both. :)

Have you ever played Hotline Miami?



If 2 + 2 = Fish, than what is Fish + Monkeys?


4 + Monkeys

Are you a computer person, or do you game on consoles?

PC Geek X 10000000000000...

Again, it's both. :)




Pinball or arcade machines?

I do love Pinball... but loved many arcade machines as well.

Depends if I want to play an arcade machine or a pinball machine. Will usually got for arcade machines first though.

Peanuts or turtles?

Chocolate type in both cases. :p

Can't say that I ever watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Peanuts as a child... Was it any good?

...that is all.

No, this is all.
