It's All About You!

Mid-year recap

The past few months have seen a sterling representation of StrafeRight folks coerced into the interview chair, Joe, TheShelks, DennyCrane and Teck, so we wanted to take this month to re share some of the highlights from previous interviews. We've pulled some snippets out below for you and the full articles can be read here: All About You blog posts

From remembering Pong, playing Sierra games (King's Quest, Space Quest) on an IBM PCjr, a Topdown Shooter Zone 66, to playing Doom as a four year old our interviewees have quite an impressive range of gaming experience.

This year has seen the variety of games continue with titles such as Saints Row the Third, World of Tanks, Dungeon Defenders, Minecraft, Heroes of Newerth and Grand Turismo 5 on the Playstation 3.

And finally, should you ever need a penlight, sharpies or a destruct sequence code...well you know who to ask...

We're on the look out for new interviewees, if you're interested in answering the questions or volunteering someone else, just pm MisterX or Ohmigosh.

We have two live tournaments in the final rounds, Asteroids from May and June's Chopper Challenge. Check out the Arcade if you are part of the tournament and see who's still in the game.

New games added are a mix of action, shooting, strategy and fighting, some are leaderboard and some aren't so check them out. We're able to bring these games into StrafeRight if the developer provides the game files, so if you see a game that you like let Ohmigosh know or shout out in the Community Forum. We'll be rotating the games in the arcade so if you don't want a game to be removed make sure you rate it.

Current champions are: Rage, Joe, CoffeeShark, Sergeant_Assist, Pine inch Nenis and Ohmigosh.
