SuicideGirl Gamer of the Month: Romany

What are some of your favorite all-time games? 

The MGS and Silent Hill series (1-3) will always stand out to me as deeply loved favorites. Life is Strange 1 and 2 absolutely effected the hell out of me it was an excellently written and tragically beautiful series. Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Skyrim of course as well as the Fallout series, the Last of Us (anxiously awaiting the sequel), and the original Tomb Raiders 1-3 gave me so many hours of enjoyment. Parasite Eve 1 and 2, Left 4 Dead, GTA V, and the first Persona for PlayStation 1 (at the time "Revelations: Persona") is my all time favorite of any game by far. They don't make them like that anymore! As far as arcade cabinets, Revolution X is my top favorite and I'll always obsess over it, Hydro Thunder in 2nd and oddly my 3rd favorite arcade game is Bust a Move.

How long have you been a gamer and what first got you interested in the hobby? 

My whole life. As a child, my parents must have gotten my older sister some consoles but she never seemed to play them so I did. I spent much of my childhood gaming. We had Atari, NES and SNES, and then later on I got a PlayStation and so on and so forth. I can't remember a time when I did not game, other than maybe when I was too young to operate a console.

Do you think the number of girl gamers has grown over the years, or has it just become more socially acceptable so that it seems that way?

I don't like the term "girl gamer" either you're a gamer or you're not. I'm sure the number of gamers that are female have grown and it has also become more socially acceptable and commonplace but I still feel like we aren't taken as seriously as equal gamers.

What's the best movie based on a video game?

I feel like Uwe Boll has ruined even the idea of movies based on games for me, haha. The Tomb Raider movie seemed pretty similar to the game series revamp which is decent. I guess the first Silent Hill movie I would say is the best movie based on a game, in my opinion that was quite good. We won't mention the sequel.

Thoughts on cosplay?

I love it and don't get to do enough of it. I've been planning a BloodRayne cosplay for years now. I should get on that!

Playing anything right now?

I've been pretty busy so haven't been playing much. The last game I beat was Until Dawn. Now that was a really cool game. I am still trying to get through Amnesia: the Dark Descent, but for some reason I can only play it in short bursts. It kinda makes my head hurt, haha.

Which Fallout game do you think is the best?   

Fallout 4 is by far my favorite, they have made so many advancements with this game and I love it, the story-lines, side quests, NPCs are better and I even love the settlement building aspect. I could spend days just doing that, the game is so immersive I lose myself in it.

As someone who has a lot of experience playing some of the classics, what do you think about game remakes? Are they cool or should developers just leave these games alone?

It really depends. Are they revamping the series totally or just putting out say, Final Fantasy 7, with updated graphics and a little additional content? As long as they are not making major changes to the story-lines then usually I am okay with it. I would love to play a revamped Suikoden with current graphics.

Favorite movie? Band? Television show?

My favorite movie is a hard top five, but I'll say Chronicles of Riddick. Favorite band is of course the amazing DOG FASGION DISCO!!! TV show was Game of Thrones until the last two episodes. Now I'm really getting into Westworld

Do you watch anime at all? 

I do here and there, not as much as when I was a teen. I like darker animes like Gantz, Blue Gender, Serial Experiments Lain, etc.

Outside of gaming, what are some of your other hobbies?

Modeling, eating, making smutty videos on ManyVids, exploring and going on adventures.

Q&A Interview with Karrigan Taylor

Where are you from?

I am from Massachusetts!

How long have you been cosplaying? 

I have been cosplaying for about three years.

What first got you interested in cosplay? 

I was huge on playing dress up when I was young and for one of my birthdays I received an entire wardrobe filled with Disney costumes. I remember when I was young I wanted to be a vampire, devil and princess on Halloween. My parents told me I couldn’t be them all, so I came up with an original character that was all three of those things in one. It was a huge hit.

What do you think is the most difficult thing about cosplaying? What is the thing that you enjoy the most about it?

I would say the most difficult thing about cosplaying is finding time to take photos, make sure the costume looks perfect in the photos, etc. I often take around 2-5 hours just self-shooting cosplays and editing them myself.

Do you watch anime?

Yes! I do.

What are some of your favorites?

I like dumb animes. My favorite type of anime is what I call "titty anime" so basically really simple plot with a lot of cute anime girls. Right now I would say my favorite anime is Future Diary because I love Yuno.

What are some of your favorite video games?

I love Overwatch, Final Fantasy XIV, The Witcher series, and Lolipop Chainsaw, just to name a few of my favorites of all time.

Playing anything currently?

I haven't been gaming a lot recently, as I haven't had much time and I haven't found a game I've been interested in.

Favorite television show?

I don't really watch conventional TV, but I like Black Mirror and America's Next Top Model.

Favorite movie?

My favorite movie of 2019 was Aladdin. I have a lot of all time favorites though! I am a huge movie buff.

I was worried about seeing live action Aladdin. Since you liked it, do you think they should continue doing more live action remakes of Disney classics?

I love Disney. Writing for Disney is my dream job, so some part of me wants them to come up with new unique story ideas so that I can help them develop and write them in the future.

Favorite band?

My favorite band is Starset and Slipknot!

Is there a cosplayer that inspires you?

Alyson Tabbitha is a cosplayer that I admire! However, I admire all of my cosplay friends!

Plans for your next cosplay?

I have a bunch of plans in the works, but I really want to cosplay my Final Fantasy character.

Tell me something about yourself nobody knows. 

I am pretty open, so people know mostly everything about me. I would say something most people don't know is that I love to dance and have performed over 100 times.
