the original rules follow here.
1. Each person has to share 5 things about themselves
2. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer
3. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal
4. Not something like "you are tagged if you read this"
5. You have to tag legitimately 10 people
6. No tag-backs

but there's no rule about changing the rules, and since there's plenty of somewhat meta rules, I think it's safe to say that it's not implied that you can't change the rules, so I'm changing the rules slightly.

The new rules follow here:
1. Each person has to share 5 things about themselves
2. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer
3. Choose 2 or more people and put their icons on your journal
4. Not something like "you are tagged if you read this"
5. You have to tag legitimately 2 or more people
6. No tag-backs
7. No changing the rules

my five things about myself are:
1. I don't remember the first game I ever played, because of how young I was at the time, but it was probably on the Amiga.
2. I grew up with a Snes and Megadrive emulator on a computer, and the Snes emulator had a load of japanese roms, as a result I have a lot of nostalgia for games you've never even heard of, such as Daibakushou Jinsei Gekijou - Ooedo Nikki, Dokapon 3.2.1. Arashi wo Yobu Yujyo, and MagiMonster Maker Kids.
3. My parent's didn't get the internet until about 2001, or more likely later. I don't remember the exact year, but it wasn't that long ago.
4. I always use proper punctuation when writing text messages.
5. I think I have an allergy towards chocolate.

Vinzurza's questions are you have any strange habits
I have loads of strange habits, but I suppose I've got to give at least one. Whenever I'm in a bank or the post office, I like to think of the order I'd shoot everyone if I burst in with a shotgun (and for the record, I would never commit such a senseless act of violence, I actually detest violence, but there's always fun in imaginary violence).

2. which do you prefer sour or spicy
Well it depends really. I wouldn't want my curries to be sour, and I wouldn't want my sour Skittles to be spicy. But if I had to choose, I'd choose sour.

3. what's your biggest phobia
Probably spiders. I just don't like those damn legs!

4. name the last science fiction program you watched
Doctor Who, it was about a few minutes ago as well. Although since I'm British, watching Doctor Who is practically obligatory.

5. what makes you hesitate when asking a question to someone in person
I hesitate because of what I think their response will be like. As a result, I try and word my question in such a way so that I get the response I want (in my head of course, and it's usually right).

6. what is your biggest pet peeve
Where do I start!
But since you're asking, probably when someone get's a technicality wrong... or when people write "your" instead of "you're", I mean, the two words don't even sounds the same, and the meanings are completely different. One is pronounced "yor" and the other is pronounced "u-er". I also have a peeve with modern FPS games, and when people complain about splitscreen being in a game, when it being in doesn't affect them.
I could go on forever about pet peeves.

7. name your favorite video game
That's like asking me to choose my favorite child... when I get children that is.
The original Deus Ex is a brilliant game. Dwarf Fortress is as well. I like Seven kingdoms: Ancient Adversaries. I also like Timesplitters Future Perfect.

8. if you had to choose would you rather work for modern disney or nickelodeon
Probably Disney, since chances are that in a decade or two, Nickelodeon will probably get bought out by Disney. Every company does in the end.

9. which genre of animation do you prefer 2d or 3d
It depends on the story, but I personally prefer 2D if it's traditionally animated. If it's flash, then probably 3D.

10. more makes a better horror film blood and gore, or suspense and the unknown
Suspense and the unknown. Oh, and none of those stupid idiots getting on the floor screaming for a few minutes while the monster very slowly makes it's way towards them. There's a reason why Evil Dead was a good film, and it's because he actually DID SOMETHING. Oh, and I don't like cheap scares from startling the audience. A sense of impending doom is the best, after all, it's why I personally find slow zombies better than fast zombies. One just gives cheap scares, the other only scares you with the hopelessness of it all.

my ten questions are

1. Why did you join deviantArt?
2. What do you think to these chain tag thingies?
3. Are you going to tag other people?
4. What is your tenth question going to be?
5. Do you agree that changing the rules is ok, if there's no rule about changing the rules?
6. What's your favorite colour?
7. What's your favorite day of the week?
8. What do you think to the spelling differences between English and American English (such as color and colour)?
9. Which do you prefer AAA Games, Indie Games, or Retro Games?
10. Do you think I was lazy in coming up with the majority of these questions?

Another weird thing just happened to me. This time in a video game. I know it's not that important, but it bugs me so I had to tell someone! :XD:

I was playing Minecraft just now and got into the most epic battle conceivable. I think I'm going to get a Book & Quill and write about it.
It went down right at the world spawn. I encountered the following. ALL AT ONCE:
:iconmczombieplz:Four regular Zombies.
An armed Infected Villager
A Baby Zombie
A Spider
A Skeleton
Two Creepers
A Chicken Jockey
and a Spider Jockey!
Why didn't they just add a WITCH too so they could have said EVERYONE was there?! :X
I thought the Spider Jockey was an internet hoax until I saw one during the course of THAT BATTLE, of all times!
I read the MineCraft wiki, and something about rare monsters must make more rare ones spawn, because once I also saw three Baby Infected Villagers all at once attacking me as a trio.

The sad part is, I got a Music Disc during that battle. It was a black one, but not the broken one. I've gotten a Music Disc before, but I've never lived long enough after getting one to put it into a Chest. I got all my items back except a few pieces of Oak Wood Planks and THE MUSIC DISC! :tantrum: Everything else I had was junk by comparison.
As I said, the battle raged at The World Spawn, so I had to keep fighting until I won, punching monsters and picking up weapons as I died over and over trying to figure out how to draw the weapons and fight all those things. I was sure I'd get the disc this time because the Bonus Chest was right there and I just had to keep it from disappearing. Didn't happen. :tears:
DanVzare Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014
Wow, that is one heck of a battle. Maybe you should place a load of torches around your spawn point to ensure that doesn't happen again. Unless of course you want that to happen again. After all, you did nearly get a music disc.

None the less, that's the first I've ever heard that happen.
Hmm,  couldn't you have just lured the two creepers next to the other monsters, and let those creepers do the rest for you. Or better yet, get the music disc and run for it. Ah well, I guess you did get to participate in an epic battle. :D

Sorry that I still don't a map of my world to show you yet.

I already had Torches around The World Spawn point. I wouldn't place too many there because I don't really need it to be safer than it is, and I was still at the beginning, when I didn't have enough resources to place Torches everywhere. Even if I had, though, it wouldn't have helped. I was on my way to the Bonus Chest at The World Spawn Point (the source of the Torches) to store items in it when mobs started to come after me, and they chased me to it. I disregarded them and tried to stuff as many items in the Chest as I could before they killed me. Couldn't do it, so I had to pick up the items I dropped before they despawned.

Also, I couldn't use the Creepers because they didn't last that long. Remember, I got the Music Disc during the battle, so the Creeper that coughed it up died on Skeleton's terms, not mine. Worked for me, though! One Creeper couldn't have killed all those things, and with the other monsters trying to kill me, and me not wanting the Bonus Chest destroyed (Then I'd risk losing ALL my items, not just the ones I was carrying) or other things around my spawn... I didn't have the skill to position the Creeper where I wanted it to go off. I was too panicked, and getting knocked around too much by other things.
I tried as hard as I could to get the Music Disc and run for it, but they chased me to where I'd store it, and I couldn't keep running past there because there was no safe place to run. I was out in a field. I couldn't escape by swimming into the ocean, because there were multiple Skeletons around on a hill by the sea. The ocean is the worst place to die if you ever want to save your items. And I couldn't dig a safe place to hide because of the excessive number of monsters all around me. No time, and any hole I dug would be blown apart by the Creeper, so I had to get rid of that first, and monsters kept coming and getting into the fight.

Epic as that was, I wouldn't want that to happen again! :XD:
DanVzare Featured By Owner 5 days ago
So the Skeleton shot the Creeper and killed it? Hmm, I think that may have been exactly why a Music Disc spawned,

Also, why couldn't you just keep running? Just hold out until daylight comes. Or were the skeletons shooting you too much, and your health was draining?
Did you know that sprinting wasn't implemented when I first started playing Minecraft?

But I get why everything happened the way it did. You tried, and had a lot of fun with it.
Also, I'm guessing you don't know how to make charcoal yet.

None the less, everything that did happen, sounds rather epic.
