IT’S WEDNESDAY!!! Another Girls of War article heading your way! Take a read at what Lexi had to say about Gears.
Gamertag: Arise Optimus
Location: Chicago, IL
Q: How long have you been playing Gears of War?
A: I have been playing Gears of War for about 2 years now and I started making Gears of War content almost one year ago.
Q: Is there a specific one that you like best?
A: I like Gears of War 3 the best so far because I enjoy wall bouncing and strafing! However, that may change for when Gears 4 is out.
Q: What you say your favorite thing about Gears is?
A: I think my favorite thing about Gears of War is when you get a headshot with the sniper. It’s one of the most brutal sounds, but can be abnormally satisfying. Especially when you hit a blindy!
Q: Would you like to see a girls only event for Gears?
A: I would love to see a girl’s only event in Gears of War. I see how competitive guys get in Gears and we should see how girls would be as well!
Q: Do you prefer playing with other girls?
A: I always love playing with a stacked team of girls in public matches! Guys typically try to talk down on us, but Gears Girls are a part of the Gears community just as much as guys are!
Q: If you could add an aspect to Gears of War, what would that be?
A: If I could add another feature to the game I would want to see more brutal executions! For example, a couple of friends and I have talked about making an execution with the sniper, as the guy is getting up from the ground you smash their head in the air as if swinging a baseball bat at a watermelon!
Q: What setup do you currently use?
A: I currently am using the Astro A40 gaming headset and for streaming and recording game clips for Twitch and Youtube I use my Elgato Game Capture HD.
Q: How can we follow you and keep up with your gaming?
A: I’m most active on Twitter @optimus_fine_xd. Im a YouTuber for Arise GoW and I post Gears content along with funny moments and other gameplay, my youtube is Arise Optimus Fine. I don’t stream very often, but I try to do it occasionally! My Twitch is Optimusfinexd and lastly my Instagram is Arise_Optimus.
Q: Anything you’d like to add?
A: Don’t let anyone discourage you from doing something that makes you happy! Stay on that Gears grind and don’t let anyone talk you out of doing something that you enjoy. You don’t need that negativity in your life, positive vibes only! Keep on that Gears grind everyone! Gears of War 4 will be here soon!
Another kick ass set of questions answered by a bad ass Gears Girl! Thank you so much Lexi for taking some time out of your day to go over what Gears is to you!
