Gaming & Commentary History
Having started gaming on the family computer way back when I was young and insolent, I grew to love the racing sims. An old Win 95 computer was the first experience with the wonder world of gaming but it wasn’t until I was 12 years of age that I got my first taste of the FPS genre with the release of Unreal Tournament Classic. This led me to love any and all shooters as there was nothing like playing with someone from another place (then on dial-up) and shooting his brains out.
At the age of 16 I bought my first computer with a copy of BF2 and from there went clan hunting. I was looking for a bunch of guys who shared similar interests with me, not being too hardcore but competitive till the end. After a random clan hunt on the old Gamespace I came across the clan of AEF (Australiasian Expeditionary Forces) and this was my home from May of 2006 till over 5 years later when I offically left in 2011. Here I played with teams for a number of games including Bf2, Bf2142, BC2, Counter Strike Source, IL2 1946, CoD4 and even the odd game of rFactor thrown in for good measure. Some of my highlights included playing in the Gamespace Bf2 10 vs. 10 Div 1 Grand Final Series, this was a huge effort coming from a group of casual gamers. Also I was given the chance to be the 2IC (Second in Command) of the Devils Brigade BF2142 and CoD4 teams aswell of the Supernova CSS Team.
It was at this clan that a man by the name of Momowang joined our ranks and this was my introduction to the world of Shoutcasting. Wanting to try something new, and having been a debater and public speaker (basically a BS artist) I loved the new challenge. Having casted about 3 BF2 matches real life seemed to have different plans for me with an ever increasing University Schedule. This saw myself leaving not only the shoutcasting scene but gaming in general for up to 2 years. During a brief quiet period I introduced myself to TCB and was able to get some experience in the CSS area before being sucked into the institution that was University once again whilst my degree was coming to an end.
Now having graduated from university with an IT Degree under my belt shoutcasting is back at the top of my list (but don’t tell my gf or she’d kill me).
I have had some great opportunities to shoutcast at inter-state LAN events such as GGF in Brisbane as well as internationally having been flown to New Zealand to cover all of the action at xLan. Neeber started Monday Night Madness to showcase the up and coming teams that play in the CyberGamer Open Counter Strike Source Ladder. My aim has always been to try and allow everyone to have their name heard on the airwaves.
