Member Spotlight April 2013

Postby merricat sugar » Sat Apr 20, 2013 8:52 am

I’m kicking off a new feature here on the AH Forums, starting with today, and continuing on the 20th of every month, there’ll be a member chosen for a spotlight interview. It’s a chance to learn a little more about the people we hang out with here on the site.

Since I’m kicking this thing off on 4/20, there was really only one person I had in mind . . .

Member Spotlight for April 2013 is the Achievement Hounds Podcast’s


EliteEDawg420Image



CM: Tell us a little bit about your gaming background prior to the 360 . . .

I Grew up on the NES moved to Sega Genesis/ Super Nintendo, from there
N64, Playstation, Xbox, PS2, Gamecube,Xbox 360 and finally getting my foot in pc games Kinda.

CM: How did you get into achievements?

When I got to around 40,000 it started to hit me like " that's a lot of Gamerscore". Started looking up easy games to hit the much looked forward to 50,000 milestone and stumbled across X360a and True Achievements and it was straight down from there. That was back in early 2008 I think. I was kind of a late adopter to the xbox 360.

CM: How did you get your gamertag? Do you ever regret it? Has it ever cause problems for you online?

Six years EliteEdawg420 was created but a year before that Edawg was offline playing games. When I managed to finally cave and get cable and internet I eagerly tried to connect to Xbox live to find Edawg was already taken, so I thought to myself-I have lots of Gamerscore- so the word that I came up with to let all the online people know I mean business was Elite. This had nothing to do with the Elite system as I'm pretty sure it wasn't out yet. The 420 Is for, well, lets be blunt (pun intended) smoking marijuana. It throws up a flag that says: “what’s up, I'm a chill person that smokes weed." Little did I know it really says " I'm a stupid stoner don't take me seriously". I get mad at the crap we 420's get but hey it only take a few to give us all a bad name. I have no regrets, but have often thought of taking the 420 out and the "Extra" E out to be just EliteDawg, but I have had this tag for so long and have never once changed it, so I own it and am proud to be it. I am Elite Edawg Fooooouuurrrrr Twenntaaaaaayyyyyyyy!!!


CM: Tell us a little about yourself- what do you do for a living? Do you enjoy it? What about where you live?

I live about 20 miles out of the Mile High City Denver, Colorado. I work for Albertsons , a company that one wasn't doing so well, but now seems to be doing fine and provides a steady paychecks. I have 10 years with the company, give or take a year when they decided to lay me off. Before I got layed off I climbed the chain of a grocery store from caddy to manager, specifically Grocery Department the "meat of the store". Fed up with the politics I went to overnight stocking shelves- a brainless activity were I wore Heelys, believe it or not, and skated around listening to music and stocking shelves. This was a fun time due to only about five of us in the store most nights. This is when I discovered Podcasts, and it was like I love games so now I get to play games all day and listen about games all night. It was wonderful. I listened to a ton of Gaming Podcasts, TXL was one I found and could really connect with the hosts due to them not really being in the games industry, and years later here we are. I am good at my job and it pays very well considered I have yet to go to college. I got layed off, played a ton of games, then got back in a new store. I have run the Dairy for about a year and half now. It pays the bills. Most days I like it some days I hate. 6am to 3pm most days.

Colorado is a great place to live mountains, casinos, wild changing weather, The Bronco's, and the now legal Marijuana . It's a beautiful place that's not too crazy. I wish I could get up to the mountains and snowboard more often than I do.

Achievement Unlocked "half my life story told"

CM: What are your favorite kind of chips?

Sunchips, particularly Harvest Cheddar, the runner up being Lays Kettle Cooked BBQ chips.

CM: When you purchase a new game, how do you go about getting the achievements in it? (i.e. do you have a game plan, look at guides, etc.)

Most games nowadays I just put in, look at the achievement list, and play or "wing it." Back when I cared more for completions, it was looking at X360a before I started the game, pulling the collectible guide outta it and playing it, but following the collectible guide. Text Collectible guides too, I hate video guides.

CM: Are you a completionist at all?

It all depends on the game but the easy answer is NO.

CM: What's your favorite kind of game? (include Examples!)

RPG'S! First Person, Third person, and Turn Based- I love them all. Leveling up and looting, dungeon crawling that is my specialty. I love a game that has a huge level cap, massive guns and something that after 100+ hours you can look at and say "Damn look at my team (or character) He (or they) is a BADASSSSSS!! Games like Final Fantasy 7 and up. All the old school RPG's on Super Nintendo, like Secret of Mana and Earthbound. Skyrim, Far Cry 3, The Mass Effect Trilogy, Crackdowns, FALLOUT 3, New Vegas, and Sacred 2!!! Should I continue . . .

CM: Are you looking forward to the new Xbox this fall?

Of course I can't wait to see how they will be taking it to the next level.


CM: Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions, and for helping to put out such a great show each week!

Great interview! If I can get myself established on this website, I would be honored to do a spotlight. There's a lot of hard work to be done in order to earn that though.

All in all Great interview! Sounds like a really cool and chill guy.

Cool new feature. Lays Kettle Cooked BBQ chips are freakin awesome. VIDEO GUIDES ARE THE DEVIL! :lol: It is like playing the game twice. Sometimes they do help for one or two but following the whole way through is a pain.

Happy 4/20 everybody!

Very interesting interview and reminds me of the "Limelight of the month" from xbox hounds. Only difference is there's more pictures and a special limelight picture that is given to the member who is the limelight.

It is good to learn a bit more about fellow gamers.

Very cool new feature! It was nice to learn a little bit more about Mr. Four Twentaaay!

If I may make a suggestion... It might be cool to make this semi-viral. Meaning, the current spotlight picks the person they would like to know more about for the following month.

The person who is interviewed picking the next interview guest is a good idea

My suggestion is that people send in nominations as to who they would like to see interviewed to chupaMama and then have the people interviewed accordingly as to the order received or by most nominations or even by a poll where the next interview could be one of the top say 5 to recieve a vote to keep the mystery around who will be interviewed (the poll would have to be a secret vote with all votes submitted via private message) however this would entail even more work for chupaMama.

I thought about having the current person pick the next person as well, but I'm worried that could lead down a very narrow cross section of the community if everyone only picked their buddies (I wouldn't even be intentional, just natural). I like the nomination idea, not 100% sure how to make it work at the minute since I can't see all medal nominations in one place :-/ I want the picks to be community driven, so I'm working on coming up with something . . . :-)

At XBH, the people who want to nominated someone for the spotlight sends a nomination to the Community Manger (ie person in charge of Limelights) and then that person would select a few people and send them the questions and then the first one to send back a response to the limelight inteview is the next one to be posted and so on (in order of receiving answered interviews back).

Nice job all around. The only thing I would add is put the members name in the Thread Title. When people see that handle they are sort of like hey I know that person, click.

Great interview! I like the little extra peak into the mind of Eric! I probably won't be able to get the image of him wheeling around the store all night stocking shelves for a long time. I love it!

Eric's story sounded all too familiar... minus the 420. :-) I worked at Albertsons for 5 years before leaving. Saw many a co-worker do the same thing he did; give up being manager to move to overnight freight. Did that for a couple months to fill in, but not my cup of tea. Hearing him talk about grocery store politics brought back too many bad memories.

Nice read!

After reading this - I'm sorry to say - that I am one of those people who assume 420 = stupid stoner. In my defense, most of my friends growing up were stupid stoners and every dang day at that time or on April 20th I had to hear about it all the time (and I didn't smoke). They were at least cool about not trying to make me smoke, but most of them were (and some still are) stupid stoners, lol.

Consider this person educated a little and I will try to break my bias of 420 = stupid stoner.

I think this is the first time I've even heard of "420". I guess it's more of an American thing?

It's more popular in the United States than in Europe, I can tell you that.

But I personally know that it is a well known term in Switzerland, Germany, France and Spain. In these countries it's more about the actual 20th of April than it is a common term in the States though
