Posted under People of RFGeneration, RFGen, members, interview, Tynstar

Tynstar is one of the RFGeners i have known for quite some time. Off the top of my head i think him and Captain Nintendo joined a couple months after me and Danvx6. The main difference being my online sidekick went AWOL quite sometime ago and they are both still wreaking havoc.

Well let me get on with this i guess...

GENERAL
How did you find RFGeneration?

A long time ago I was looking for a list of all the Genesis games that were released and I found RFGeneration. It was awesome since I am a list freak.

What made you join?
The collection tool and the way stuff got added. I tried for almost a year to get some Genesis games added to IGNs collection tool and they didnt get added. I havent touch IGN collection tool since I found RFG.

What made you stay?
The community and collection tool.

Have you met or personally know any of the other members of the website?
Jagdiesel and Captain Nintendo are friends of mine. I have met Den68, Phoenix1967, Suaza12 and S1lience.

Are you an active game collector? If so anything specific?
Yes I am an active collector. Right now I am collecting Xbox 360 games.

Whats your favorite game or series? Why?
Favorite series Command and Conquer. Favorite games Ms. Pac Man (Arcade), Crackdown (Xbox360), Warcraft 2 (PC), Landstalker (Genesis), Nightstalker (Intellivision), Warlords (Atari2600) and Pac Man CE (XBLA)

What do you do outside of RFG?
Hang out with friends, family and play with my dogs.

SPECIFICS
Why have you decided to stop collecting for multiple consoles and focus on the 360?

I had too much stuff and all it did was sit there. So I figured I would sell it and payoff my bills.

What made you decide to become the hugest Gamerpoints whore* in the world? (*self proclaimed)
I am no where near the biggest point whore around. Yes thats why I play 360 games but the highest score in the world right now is a little over 300k and I am only at 111k. The game that got me started on achievements was Crackdown. I liked it so much I wanted to play it more so I started going for the achievements I didnt have. Then I started talked to s1lence who was already and point whore and he ruined my life. He was a good mentor but know I just kick his ass.

What is/was your most sought after 360 game?
Dont really have one. I have both Amazon exclusive. I have Mass Effect SE which was online only. I picked up a Canadian exclusive Asterix at the Olympic Games. I would like to get the Canadian exclusive Forza 2 CE.

What is the "rarest" one you know of?
Maybe one of the Fallout 3 Special Editions but I am not sure.

How did you find out about being able to earn points multiple times on consoles from different regions? And have you been able to do this yet?
S1lence and different achievement websites. I have 1000 points in a Japanese game. I did that when I was staying at S1ence house.

How many consoles have you had complete collections for?
It used to be 7-8. I am down to 5 now. Those being Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega 32X, Sega CD and Sega Pico. See a pattern there? I am about 30 games away form having the Sega Saturn done.

I know you were going to be keeping your Genesis collection. What other parts of your collection are you planning on keeping?
I am keeping all my Sega stuff and Xbox 360 stuff. Well I am selling my Sega Game Gear stuff because I hate handhelds. I am keeping a couple 2600s I had as a kid and Intellivision II plus some games. Oh and I am keeping my Ms Pac Man cabinet.

GAMING FIRSTS
What was the first game you played and on what system and how old were you?

First.maybe Pong I know we had one when I was a kid. If not that the Atari 2600. I have no idea what game or how old.

First console owned?
Well my family had the Atari 2600 and Intellivion. I had a NES and the first system I bought myself was the Sega Genesis model 1. Bought it the week it came out and I still have it. Cost me 217 bucks.

First game you bought yourself?
I am not sure but I remember buying Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun for the Genesis.

What made you decide to buy that particular game?
I liked RPG's at the time and D&D so I wanted it.

First game you beat?
No idea I am too old to remember that.

First time you wanted to destroy something because of a game?
Probably a Genesis games. Last thing I destroyed was the case and manual for NFL Tour for the Xbox 360. I also threw the game out the front door. Man did that last achievement piss me off. Also that game is 100% pure crap.



Also want to note any and all errors in replies are all on him. I haven't edited anyones responses and don't plan on starting now or in the future. Don't want to be accused of misrepresentation Wink

I remember playing Red Alert 2 against you and Rick and you guys were cheating bastards coordinating attacks over the phone.

And the totally kick ass Halo 2 clan(s) we had.
 
Excellent interview. Looking forward to more.
 
lol Halo 2 is awesome! many memories with that game
 
Great interview!
 
yeah that Tynstar guy is all right. if he ever comes to my town again I'll hang out with him. he can play my 360 and get me some achievements. I don't think I've even hit 3000 yet.
 
GO TRYNSTAR GO TRYNSTAR GO! Anybody into D&D back in the day is cool with me.
 
Uhhh, sorry for adding that extra R to your name...twice. My lazy-boy chair prevents me from getting close enough to the monitor. Anyone who can tell me how to edit blog comments please let me know.
 
Can't edit blog comments. that extra R is there till time ends. Maybe even longer....

I think i am going to break "tradition" and my next interview is going to be a tie in to this one... maybe just maybe. No promises.
 
I liked the bit where you threw NFL Tour out of your house, hehe. Smiley I'm jealous you have a Ms Pacman cabinet... or any cabinet for that matter.
 
That game pissed me off like no other.
