  • Game with Fame Interview - XGC PENGUIN XC

    Missed XGC PENGUIN XC's game night on Black Ops 4? Check out his interview below to learn a bit more about the NHL loving community leader!

    Standard Questions
    What was your very first gamertag, and how did you pick it?
    SleepyPenguin. Back when Halo 2 was out on the original Xbox, I wanted to try Xbox Live and back then it was always an adjective and then an animal as the standard gamertags. I had put in a couple gamertags that it had said no to, and then I asked for a list of options and it gave me SleepyPenguin. The reason I kept Penguin was because everyone I played with shortened it to Penguin and it just stuck after that.

    Tell us your Xiled Gaming clan history including when you were recruited and by whom, up to where you are now.
    007 recruited me on Call of Duty Modern Warfare. I was brought in because I was running a big portion of the clan I was in at that time, where I was an Overlord. In Halo 2 days, being Overlord was a big deal. I was brought in as general over XGC Delta – I then split into Xiled Kings, XGC Tango and XGC Dark Knights. From there I was promoted to XS. After a little stint of inactivity I went over to SYN and opened SYN Ambush, and worked my way up again, all the way to where I am today.

    What are a few characteristics that you believe every leader should have?
    1. Ownership – whether it's good or bad, you own it one way or another.
    2. Dependability – if people can’t depend on you or count on you, you won’t be sought after.

    What advice would you give to someone who wanted to move up into leadership?
    Be around. Be here. Strive to be who you want to be, associate with the people you want to be. You learn from the people you surround yourself with.

    What has been your most memorable moment in Xiled Gaming, and why?
    Being promoted to XC was the most memorable moment, just because it brought me into all areas of the community instead of being in solely one division like before.

    What is the one thing you try to stress to all gamers in XG?
    Have fun and if you aren’t having fun, you should let somebody know. That is the reason I joined and why I have stayed.

    What is your favorite thing about Xiled Gaming?
    The people. Without the people it wouldn’t mean anything. People keep the community interesting and fun.

    What made you want to move into leadership?
    I saw things being done wrong and I knew that if I stepped in I would do it correctly. I also saw that people weren’t following the intent of the community, and I wanted to change that as well.

    Has anything in the community impacted your real life? And vice versa?
    I have made many friendships including friends in real life that I’ve hung out with, even longer than some of my real life friends.

    What is your favorite color?
    I do not have one.

    What is your favorite retro game?
    Megaman X.

    If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would you want to meet? What would be the first thing you said to them?
    Thomas Jefferson. He was a bit more fiery than George Washington. More of a douchebag, more my style. First thing I would say to him would be “How the hell are ya? “

    Who is your favorite singer/band?
    Luke Combs.

    If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    Pizza – pepperoni and mushroom with extra cheese.

    Final Words -
    Happy 13th birthday Xiled Gaming!
