Empress Cortana - July's Gamer of the Moment on

Q1: Introduction – how would you describe yourself and your lifestyle in a few sentences?

A1: “Gaming Celebutante” you know, kind of like the Kim Kardashian of the gaming world. You either love me, hate me, or you wonder, what exactly do I do? Well, I am an exotic dancer (Yes I work that pole and I am damn good too) who loves to play her Xbox 360, adores Halo & Bungie, and has a passion for fashion, lets see here what else…Oh yeah I play D&D and I’m a huge TREKKIE!!!

Q2: What was the moment or game that made you think “Yeah I’m definitely getting an Xbox360” ?

A2: It was a combination of things actually, I had many a good time with the original Xbox so I wanted to get a 360 so I can have even more fun with the next generation of Xbox. Also it was my adoration for the Halo series, so Halo 3 was also a big factor in me getting an Xbox360.

Q3: Name at least two games that you just can’t wait for this year and why?

A3: Halo 3: ODST, for obvious reasons. I keep hearing from my peeps at Bungie that it’s going to be amazing! I am especially excited that Tekken 6 will be available for the Xbox360. I have been a Tekken fan since Tekken 2. I love fighting games like Tekken, Dead or Alive, and Soul Calibur, such a brutal yet elegant dance between two adversaries.

Q4: Has there been any moments where something Xbox360 or gaming related has made you annoyed – shout about it below?

A4: Oh lord yes…the ever popular “CAN HAS RECON!” people who spam me with those messages and friend requests, in hopes that I add them and give them the armour permutation. Sorry to burst your bubble guys, but my Spartan’s head isn’t on fire, and 1 vs 1-ing me won’t work either. This goes out to anyone who likes to bother those of us blessed with Recon. Only certain employees at Bungie have the power to bestow Recon and they will not give it to you if you are annoying. Show some respect.

Q5: We found you on twitter as you follow our news content, how do feel about ‘tweeting’ on a console when the service hits later this year – great addition or pointless?

A5: It’s all pointless, but then again it’s so fun. Though I do tend to scroll through the tweets that are just walls of one person spamming their game progress. I enjoy Twitter, it’s rather useful when I have a random thought I really need to get out of my head. Or a song I’d like to share with everyone.

Q6: If you could directly ask a developer to make the video game of your choice, exactly to your standards and preferences, what would that game be called and entail?

A6: I could go on and on about what game I want to make. It’s so elaborate, too elaborate to describe in merely a few lines.

Q7: The future of Xbox – what other services if any would you like to see implemented on the console &/or what last-gen games would you want revived in the future?

A7: Well I am very happy that they are implementing a streaming radio service over XBL. I’d like to have something like Hulu, it would pretty much eliminate the need for expensive cable TV. I have heard rumors that Microsoft is playing around with that idea, so we’ll see.

Many thanks once again to Empress Cortana for providing us with an insight into her gaming world and lifestyle. You can follow her on twitter here and keep up to date with xbox news content from xboxic to your twitter account also.

Is that her real ears?

Okay, I thought my spotlight was pretty good but I had no idea we could do videos…

… as sexy as that was, I was hoping it’d be more relevant to the article itself rather than some girl dancing on a pole.

What the fuck am I talking about?

She wasn’t lying when she said she was good. :S

D&D fans, UNITE!

She’s very skilled on that pole - it’s quite impressive.

I disagree…just cos she dances round a pole doesn’t make her a slapper…

I didn’t care until I saw the video. Maybe this spotlight thing isn’t such a bad idea after all.
