Gaming & Commentary History
Chrisis started out Quake 3 Arena-ing it up on LANs in South Africa thanks to African Internets being so bad; his first taste of online gaming was ufreeze in New Zealand through the Gift of Broadband. Then it was on to Enemy Territory, which was at once "too slow" for a Quake junkie, and at the same time hella addictive - OMG XP! Enemy Territory was his gateway drug into Shoutcasting - Chrisis came on board with Gamestah and quickly built up a huge amount of casting experience. From Enemy Territory he moved into shoutcasting ET: Quake Wars (as shortlived as that was), and then onto Team Fortress 2, with a few dabbles in CounterStrike: Source along the way.
In 2007 Chrisis moved into Live Event Shoutcasting, casting Gears of War and CounterStrike 1.6/Source at the World Cyber Games (New Zealand Qualifiers). In 2008 he again appeared at the WCGNZ, casting Team Fortress 2, FIFA08 and Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne. Joining a seclect group of Gamestah casters who have cast internationally, Chrisis flew to Australia to cover the WCG in 2008.
