screwattack

CtrlAltElite bestämde sig för att ta ett snack med Craig Skistimas även känd som ”Stuttering Craig” från Screwattack.
Ni kanske har sett deras top ten eller deras retrospective där Craig bl.a pratar om äldre spel, och även The Angy Video game nerd som dom flesta säkert också känner till.

(Intervjun är på engelska men jag tror nog att dom flesta läsare förstår.)

Enjoy!

So Craig first of all I would like to thank you for taking time and talking to us here at CtrlAltElite, a lot of people in the northern countries watch screwattack and I dare speak for most of us and say that we love Screwattack!

Who came up with the name “Stuttering Craig”?

Craig1
I did. When I was a kid I mumbled a lot, more so talked over myself.  I would just get so excited and try to spew so much stuff out at once I wouldn’t enunciate very well.  When we were thinking of nicknames it just kind of fit.
Stuttering Craig is way easier to say than ”Talk over himself a lot Craig”, ya know?

How did the idea for Screwattack start, and how long have you guys existed now?

Craig1
We’re actually going on four years on February 15th!  It’s pretty cool if you think about it.
The idea started when we realized that so many gaming websites are boring
and have no personality
… that and I didn’t want to work for anybody else ha ha

What did you do before Screwattack?

Craig1
I have done a lot of crazy stuff ranging from working in a sports bar to interning at Disney World, emceeing at the Olympics in 2002, and even playing the old made-for-tv sport SlamBall. I’ve done a little bit of everything
:)

Where do you get your inspiration from? I mean the jokes and everything?

Craig1
Pluto.  All my jokes come from Pluto.

studio23
Do you have any favorite moment you can remember from something you did on Screwattack?

Craig1
Probably all the different eating challenges we’ve done.  I remember thinking ”what the hell have we done?!” as I watched one of our interns sniffing a chicken nugget through his nose. Yeah… I’m proud of that.

studio23
Do you and James “The Video game nerd” Hang out on your spare time?

Craig1
Yeah of course we get to hang out.  Mostly at conventions though… like ours! SGC in Dallas (SGConvention.com for more details)

studio23
What the best part of you job?

Craig1
Being able to use my creativity as I see fit.

studio23
You best game memory?

Craig1
Arcades… arcades… arcades….

studio23
What can we expect from Screwattack 2010?

Craig1
From the website side of things you can expect some pretty great things – new shows, new talent, new ideas.
You’ll also be able to find some great things you won’t be able to find on any other website out there, like in May when we exclusively host the internet premier of Eddie Lebron’s masterpiece of a fan film – Mega Man.
It’s truly one of, if not THE best fan film I’ve ever seen.

studio23
Have you ever been in Sweden and if so what do you think of it?

Craig1
Never been there but heard great things about it.

studio23
Do you play any Pc games like Battlefield, World of Warcraft and so on?

Craig1
I don’t want to get addicted to those things :)

studio23
Best game of all time and favorite console of all time in your opinion?

Craig1
WAY too hard to call but I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that the SNES is the best console of all-time. WAY too much good stuff there.

studio23
Worst game and console of all time?

Craig1
Well if I told you that then I would be ruining a Top 10 we have on the way eventually… ;)

studio23
Most looking forward to this year?

Craig1
Seeing how fast Natal takes over the world.

studio23
Are you going to attend E3 this year?

Craig1
I think so.  Last year was a good step to returning it to ”the good ol days…. of 2006”

studio23
What do you prefer: old school or new school games

Craig1
Both have their charm of course but I’ve got to go with the games that set the table for the games of today.

studio23
Where do you think the gaming industry will be 5-10 years from now?

Craig1
I expect a full return from Atari Jaguar who will own 99% of the market share.  The other 1% will be held by board games.

studio23
Do you guys bully Jose as much as seen in the videos or is it more?

Craig1
Are you kidding me?!  Jose bullies US!

studio23
Would you consider yourself a casual or a hardcore gamer?

Craig1
Neither.  I’m just a gamer.  Why categorize yourself?

studio23

What kind of games do you play with your friends and how often? Is your girlfriend/Wife ok with you playing games?

Craig1
Pretty much every night I’m playing something with some friends.  Lately it’s been a lot of Street Fighter 4 and CoD.  My wife is cool with it because it’s what I do for a living. I’d like to point out that I have the greatest wife in the world.


Neither.  I’m just a gamer.  Why categorize yourself?
