I have an expansion project for my Mario-themed website, Reino do Cogumelo. It involves a handful of parallel, renowned Nintendo franchises.
I love penguins.
After finishing Pokémon Red, Yellow, Blue, Gold, Crystal and (almost finishing) Silver through this year, I'm playing Dragon Warrior I. Despite its simplicity, it's by far one of the best games that I've ever played. Go, Jard! Go where rain and sun come together!
I'm working as an office assistant in a law firm located on Avenida Paulista (Paulista Avenue), one of my favourite places on Earth. It's been a pleasure to work here, specially near the holidays.
My fiancée and I are both back to the Marvel: Avengers Alliance addiction. If you play it via Facebook, make sure to add us as allies.
1: What is your favorite fictional character and why?
I know this is quite predictable, but I have to say Mario. It's a strong character, an absolute athlete of all sorts and, deep within, a true lover. The character's innocence and motivation is absolutely inspiring; also, everything that's Mario-related carries its fun, magic essence.
2: Do you own video games? If so what's your favorite?
I do have a few video game consoles, but it's certainly less than I wanted. Contrary to popular belief, I actually own nothing but two home consoles: a SNES Model SNS-101 and a Wii Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary Edition. My fiancée, luckily, is more of a portable-gaming type, so I have access to the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DSi and Nintendo 3DS systems. I can't really choose a favorite console, nor a favorite game.
3: What's your favorite game console, if any?
I can't really choose a favorite console, but I'll ultimately stick to the SNES.
4: What is your favorite genre of music? And what bands do you like?
I'm quite picky when it comes to music genres. I like heavy metal quite a lot, without any favorite band or lead singer. Rockabilly is also music to my ears: I really appreciate Johnny Cash's work.
5: What is your opinion on today's music?
Today, the huge load of voice effects tucked into the songs are probably destroying the space of real talented singers; but it really depends on the genre you're sticking to. Pop music is an absurdly huge market nowadays, and I really hate those. As for Brazilian music, we're in a very good phase... to kill the music industry. Seriously, we desperately need to kill the funk carioca before it lays eggs. Did you ever have an earache? You don't know the meaning of it.
6: Were there any scenes from an old movie that scared you as a child? (ie: the Large Marge scene from Pee Wee's Big Adventure freaked me out)
The Super Mario Bros.' Goombas literally gave me nightmares as a child. Their design was terrifying! The scene in which the Marios infiltrate in the middle of those abnormally tall monsters with a tiny little grinny head freaked me out for weeks!
7: What operating system do you have on your computer?
8: If you could have one super power of your choice what would it be (and no, I'm not accepted "the power to have all the powers I want" or something like that)?
I'm not up to superstrenght, superflying or invisiblity; personally, I'd like to have the power to malfunction and/or explode into bits nearly stereo systems. That's it. I see a car playing a wicked loud music on my neighborhood, and boom, there goes the disrespect for the community. Your neighbor is listening to forró and the music is going up into your ears and tickling your nerves? Boom, I now present you the comfortable ways of silence. It's all about the search for the world peace.
9: Do you like cartoons from the 80s and 90s? If so what's your favorite?
Of course, I love classic cartoons. Along with old Brazilian TV shows such as Castelo Rá-Tim-Bum and Mundo da Lua, Tom & Jerry, Woody Woodpecker and Pound Puppies are listed as part of my fondest childhood memories. Oddly enough, I wasn't aware about the Super Mario Bros. cartoon trilogy developed by DiC Entertainment back in that time.
10: Tea or Coffee? (Sorry, couldn't think of anything better)
You're absolutely right. Nothing is better than coffee.
Where does your deviantART username come from?
Do you have a pet of some sort? If you do, what's its name?
If you could choose anyone in the world, dead or alive, to be your mentor, who would it be and why?
What do you do when you're bored?
Do you see floaters? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floater
What's the last game that you finished?
Suddenly, you have the power to bring one video game, and one video game only, to real life. Which one would you choose?
The object on your left is your only weapon in a zombie apocalipse. How screwed you are?
If you had to choose between world peace and a world with Pokémon... which starter would you choose?
It's June 15, 1944. You're a new Office of Strategic Services recruit and you're sent to a stealth mission where, disguised as a Kriegsmarine officer, you must scuttle German U-Boat U-4901 during its maiden voyage to Bremen. On the way, you see a Nazi officer making his physiological needs with the doors open. Seeing the enemy in such a situation, would you still shoot him in the head with your Silenced Pistol for him to die sitting on the toilet or would you honorably at least wait for the man to finish his job?
