• Game with Fame - XGC Taurus XS



      XGC Taurus XS
      He's probably taught you how to do something on some game. At least that's what he'll tell you. But, do you really know him? You know he's the co-lead of the XG Events Team, you probably see his green name pop up on the website helping someone out or approving a game night. XGC Taurus is the Game with Fame Guest of Honor for the month of September!

      What was your first ever gamertag?
      SHARP SHOOTER7

      Who recruited you? When?
      KoG Facelift on June 12, 2007

      Clan history?
      Recruited into KoG Immortals - inactive until 2015 - came back active into XGC Bad Company - became a Section Leader over XGC Bad Company and XGC Extinction on April 10, 2016. I'm now Section Leader over XGC Bad Company, XGC Hellfire XK, and XGC Meltdown XK. I've had somewhere around 15 clans inside my section in my tenure. I've also produced two section leaders, XGC Juic3 XS and XGC TINTIGG XS.

      Weirdest dream?
      That's a tough one, it'll probably be inappropriate, so I gotta think of something else... I had a dream that I was the next Hugh Heffner.

      What is something not a lot of people in XG know about you?
      I've been on 7 different cruises, I was born in New York, and now live in South Carolina. I got into a pretty bad car wreck when I was 16 that changed my life forever. I have a tattoo that will always remind me of that. I quit smoking 2 years ago, after smoking for 10 years. I've had two eye surgeries and a nose surgery.

      What do you think are some key qualities to have for leadership?
      - Take an interest in what you are doing
      - be outgoing
      - Do what needs to be done
      - be a role model
      - Have fun
      - Set goals
      - Be friends with everyone.
      - Make sure you keep an open line of communication


      What game or movie universe would you like to live in?
      Supernatural (TV show) or Guardian's of the Galaxy (movie)

      Sam Winchester or Dean Winchester?
      Dean. Obviously. What kind of a question is that?

      Favorite TV show?
      That's a tough one. I have a ton of them. I'm a TV show junkie.

      Okay give me your top four.
      Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and most of the Marvel/DC TV shows (Arrow, The Flash), Power.

      What kind of cult would you like to start?
      A cult where all the woman worship me.

      What's the dumbest way you were injured?
      There's two: first time: I was on a trampoline and some kids jumped on my ankle and broke it. I rode my bike home with a broken ankle. Second: Years later, I was in gym class, and one of my friends made a bet about who could jump over the bad mitten net. I tried it, and I broke the same ankle that I had broken years earlier. Tried to tell my gym teacher, but he thought I was faking it.

      How long do you think you could survive the zombie apocalypse?
      Forever. I've played enough zombie games, I'll be fine.

      What is your zombie apocalypse weapon of choice?
      Guns run out of ammo; so I'd have to say a samurai sword.

      Got a catch phrase?
      "I taught you how to do that, you remember?"
      "Live every day like it's your last."


      Where are you from?
      Long Island, New York - 15 minutes from The Hamptons

      Favorite game of all time?
      Gears of War

      Favorite in game weapon of all time?
      M16 in CoD: 4

      Secret talent?
      I can write short poems and I can sleep very, very late.

      How and why did you get started with the XG Events Team?
      XGC Fliggy XS told me all about it, and I took a lot of interest in it. I wanted to host game nights that people would remember and that people would have a good time at. Eventually I worked myself up to being the co-lead with XGC Tantiliz XD. I wanted to make the Events Team better than it ever was.

      What made you start gaming?
      My uncle Artie. I was about 7 or 8, and I used to go to my uncles house and play Medal of Honor. Don't remember the console. A few years later, my parents got me the PS1 and eventually got me the PS2. Then I moved to the XBOX 360, then over to the XBOX ONE. Been gaming for 16 years.

      What's your favorite part of gaming?
      Socializing with my friends on XBOX and the occasional killing of things. The competitive nature of video games is also a favorite part. And you cant forget the XG life!

      Who would you credit most for who you are today in Xiled Gaming?
      XGC Wreck XD, XGC Tantiliz XD, XGC Phantom XD, KoG Exile XD, KoG Facelift, XGC TINTIGG XS, XGC Fliggy XS, XGC Charley XS, XGC Juic3 XS and a lot of old leaders that are no longer in XG. The more you get to know people, the more they influence you to be a better leader.

      Is there a certain thing that you're good at?
      I'm pretty good at skiing, riding four wheelers, snow mobiles. I've been doing those things since I was 5 years old.

      Biggest fear?
      I really, really don't like heights and I HATE upside down roller coasters and I hate seeing blood. And I hate needles. The sound of Velcro really skeeves me out. And spiders. I HATE THEM. I used to get my siblings to kill them for me. Thank God spiders can't fly.

      Do you have any advice for someone in the lower ranks who wants to move up?
      Sure. My advice would be to show dedication, interest, set goals. Nothing gets handed out for free. Work for what you want. Be out going, and make sure your clans are having fun. Make sure they know what we are about in Xiled Gaming. Communicate with them. Be there for them.

      What would you do if you found a moose inside your car?
      Probably try pet it.

      What is your favorite sports team?
      Foot Ball: New York Giants; Baseball: New York Yankees; Hockey: New York Rangers.

      If animals could talk, which would be the rudest?
      Chihuahuas

      If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you have done?
      Probably doing something stupid after drinking. (Running down the street naked.)

      The following questions are from some community members:

      If you dropped buttered toast off the counter, or a tall object, what would happen? - XGC Cinder
      I'd probably be really mad, throw it out, say "I'm over it," and walk away.

      If you could bring back one musician from the dead, who would it be? - XGC Buffy XS
      I cant choose just one. So here's a short list: Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Biggy Smalls, Chester Bennington, Michael Jackson, Dime Bag Daryl (Pantera), Tupac, David Bowie, John Lennon, Bob Marley.

      Since Charley refuses to answer this question, what would chairs look like if your knees were bent in the opposite direction? - XGC Gore
      I can see why Charley refuses to answer this.

      On a more serious note, what made you want to be in the rank you're currently in? If given the opportunity, would you move up? - XGC Gore
      I always wanted to run my own section, and lead people. I set that goal for myself. I knew a lot of the higher ups, but I was never one of them. And yes, I would want definitely move up. I want to show dedication and love for this community that means so much to me.

      What is your favorite quote? Inspirational, random, etc. - SYN LadyRebl XS
      "Live every day like its your last." I live by this quote.
