1. What's the origin of your forum name?

Well, Cody was given to me by my mother and father... However, if you ever see me in a game or somewhere online you will likely see me as  over2take

This name came to me while playing my first ever online game Battlefield 1942 almost 11 years ago, clearly taken from the strategic term overtake, and numbers... because numbers. 

2. First video game you ever played?

Oh boy, that's a hard one. I do not remember a time where there was not a game system in my house as a  kid, but our first NES came with Mario bro. and Duck hunter. that would have to be the very first video game I ever played.

I played some Battlefield 1 and Conan Exiles just last night.

Yet to have one I have not enjoyed.

1. What's the origin of your forum name?

In 1994 I was getting my first ever Internet account with a little, ma-and-pa Internet company called Texas.Net.  Back in those days Internet accounts were almost always tied to a Unix system with 8 character maximum.  I pieced together my first and last name, and now it's not just my forum name, but it's my work name.  After 22 years and MANY other Michael's in the office, mikedoug has officially become my name.

I could use my SWTOR name, but that would just confuse people around here. :)

2. First video game you ever played?

Oh man...  I'd have to go with Ultima III being the one I remember.  I became a HUGE Richard Garriott fan from a very young age, so much so that I got into programming because I wanted to make cool games like him.  That was in a very different bit-era.

3. What's the last video game you played?

Star Wars: The Old Republic - last night.  We tried our hand against the new boss Tyth in Hard Mode...  He kicked our collective butts...  

4. Do you have any pets? If so, how many and what kind?

One dog.  She takes up half of our bed and my wife and I share the other half.

5. Cake or pie?

Pie.  I'm gluten free, so cake is usually not in the picture for me.

6. Star Trek or Star Wars?

Ahem, I can't even believe this is a question...  Is there a significance that I'm making this post on May The Fourth?

7. If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I'd have one of my wife and daughter singing together and solo and play it on repeat.

8. Top 3 favorite movies of all time?

Star Wars
Fifth Element
Jumping Jack Flash -- don't judge me!

9. What are your hobbies (including or outside of gaming)?

I spend a lot of time with my kids doing whatever it is they want to do, and playing SWTOR with my wife and fellow guild mates.

10. Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?

I feel like I could strategize my way out of fighting 100 duck-sized horses while the single horse-sized duck there's pretty much just one way that ends.

I like my chances against 100 duck-sized horses. I've lived next to a horse before, he was pretty chill. Ducks, on the other hand...

1. What's the origin of your forum name?

I would normally use vivsavage for my forum name, but alas, I am using my IRL given name :)

But, had I gone with vivsavage, it's a reference to Viv Savage, the keyboardist from legendary rock band Spinal Tap from the infamous rockumentary This is Spinal Tap.

2. First video game you ever played?

It's hard to recall, but probably Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt on the NES.

3. What's the last video game you played?

Quake Champions

4. Do you have any pets? If so, how many and what kind?

I have a dog, Jack. He's a border collie and super smart! I also have 2 birds of my own, but 4 total in the household. Bruce, Lucy, Craig, and Indiana. (Yes, lots of noise in my house sometimes)

5. Cake or pie?

Probably pie. (something something the cake is a lie)

6. Star Trek or Star Wars?

No contest. Trek all the way. I've seen the original series 3 times through, Next Gen through once, and DS9 once. I couldn't get through Voyager and don't intend to, but I do want to see how Scott Bakula fared as captain one day. I have seen all the original movies, but haven't given the new ones a fair shot. Again, aim to one day.

7. If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?

That is an insanely difficult question for me. I have to cheat a bit and pick 1 band. Pretty much anything by Rush.

8. Top 3 favorite movies of all time?

I don't have a personal "fave movies" list, so 3 I really enjoy: Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, and The Dark Knight.

9. What are your hobbies (including or outside of gaming)?

Camping/backpacking, hiking, and music (That's broad, I know. I collect records, listen to all sorts of genres, and occasionally pick up the ol' geetar)

10. Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?

1 horse-sized duck.

1. What's the origin of your forum name?

That's a secret. Even I don't know.

 

2. First video game you ever played?

Pong. On my uncle's TV when I was 5. It was almost new back then. 2nd game I played was Atari Pac-Man on the 2600 a couple years later with my aunt.

 

3. What's the last video game you played?

Just started Murdered: Soul Suspect. Pretty interesting so far.

 

4. Do you have any pets? If so, how many and what kind?

None, but I used to live in an apartment in Placentia, CA with 6 roommates and 1 of them was a guy named "Pet", no joke. One day after knowing this guy for about a year he said he was going to the store to get cigarettes and beer. We have still never heard from him. This was in 1999. Now I have no Pets or pets.

 

5. Cake or pie? Why?

 

6. Star Trek or Star Wars? Both, but if you ask me which I prefer then Star TREK. Star Wars has little to think about.

 

7. If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be? "The Sounds of Me Living My Life" by jhop71 and the Universe.

 

8. Top 3 favorite movies of all time? 2001: A Space Odyssey, Alien, and Lawrence of Arabia.

 

9. What are your hobbies (including or outside of gaming)? History, writing, reading, coding, gaming, game development, hiking, camping, nature photography.

 

10. Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses? Whether armed or unarmed I would prefer to face 100 duck-sized horses, easy kills. 

Were I to fight a horse-sized duck, even with a quick and easy victory, the implication is there are more than just the one I killed. How many are there? Are they carnivorous? Where did they come from? What will they do and how will they change our lives on Earth? I don't want to have to deal with these questions. Just gimme the little ones, clean up the mess, and get on with life.

 

11. I used Outfox for the first time today and when done it said that my improvement USING OUTFOX was -71% (MINUS 71%). Is that normal? I am located in Los Angeles, CA USA. Is this result because of my location or was there just some incident that occurred that caused an unusually bad result? If my result remains in the area of -71% I have to say I don't see how this program would be useful to someone like me. Has anyone else had this issue or am I the lucky one? Hopefully this was just a fluke for today and it gets better.
