Meet the Reader: Bodachi

Looking to the future, theres a huge stack of games out in the next couple of months. What three games, shall we say, are you most looking forward to getting your hands on?

Well as soon as I can pay for it I’m gonna get myself Deus Ex: Human Revolution as I loved the first two. Most people don’t like the second one because it was a little too basic, which is why I’m glad I played that one first.

Second would have to be Uncharted 3. I’m going to complete the story mode which I have no doubt is gonna be amazing, then get right into the multiplayer which I will be playing for days at least.

Finally what I’m most looking forward to from 2012 would have to be the Street Fighter X Tekken crossover of two game series, which I really love in one package and is just gonna be amazing.

I’m most certainly looking forward to Uncharted 3. We had some good times in the Uncharted 2 clan, so I might have to revive that for 3…

I remember my first meet on TSA was an Uncharted 2 meet hosted by some guy called Teflon, whoever he is. I barely remember anything about it, just hearing all these people who already knew each other, me being a bit shy around then and not very talkative. The one thing I clearly remember is Yogdog randomly killing himself with a grenade as soon as he spawned for some reason I don’t know.

That sounds like Yogdog! I remember him being completely hopeless at Uncharted 2. 

He usually complained about something he didn’t like about the game.

Yup, definitely Yogdog! What did you think of the Uncharted 3 beta?

The Uncharted 3 beta took what I loved about Uncharted 2 and made it better in every way I think. I loved being about to run around at super speed like a little child making a fast car noise.


I think some of the boosters might be a bit tacky, like the one that just warped you to a different part of the map, or the crazy spider thing. Aside from that, I just loved being able to chuck grenades from half way across the map, bounce it off a wall, and blow up some sniping douche, again. I love the grenades!

Yeah I remember Jørgen (Aquastyle) killing a lot of our team, including myself, with the cluster grenades.

Oh, I don’t remember that power… Memory like a sieve. I can’t wait to dive back into Uncharted now! How did you first stumble across the good ship TSA?

I honestly have no idea what so ever but all I can say is I’m very glad I did. News with personality. So really interesting opinion pieces. The best thing of all the community, from the great discussions in the comments section to the fun of meeting up online in a game with some of these nice people and having a gay old time.

Haha. You said ‘gay’! What do you think is your favourite front page feature on TSA?

I do quite like the Community Round-Ups, especially when the meets I host are mentioned. I think my favourite one would have to be Tweak-It. So many times I look at a game and see so many things that could be changed to make the overall experience better. If only game developers would listen. Thankfully some do.

The round-ups aren’t my department anymore, as I handed the task over to Gazza this week, but I’ll see what I can do. On the subject of meets, though, are there any TSA members you’d not be overly opposed to meeting in real life? Who have you associated with the most on TSA?

Well one guy I’ve chatted to for quite sometime would be Jørgen (Aquastyle) as we are always hanging out in the Uncharted 2 meets.

Shuffling along to the more real world, what do you do with yourself outside of gaming and incessantly refreshing TSA for your gaming news?

Not really much in I’m honest other the hanging out with some friends. Though I am looking forward to starting University this year at my old age.

Do you mind sharing what you’ll be studying? Also, you’re only just starting at 22?

I will be studying Computing at Southampton Solent University. I’m only just starting as I fucked up when I first went to college and didn’t pass. So I went back last September and started a course for old folks, well, for people 19 or older and now I’m all set for Uni.

I was going to ask about long term goals and aspirations, but it seems you’re going along nicely and succeeding in that regard.

Well we shall see about succeeding when I start Uni in a months time.

Are you all set with some witty comebacks for any “old guy” jokes you might encounter?

Well I could just hit them, but I hear universities are not a bit fan of that so I may have to scare them with just being a tall, large guy.

You should enrol whilst wearing a Wookie costume. No wait, that wouldn’t scare them, but you’d likely be an instant legend! It’s been an absolute pleasure talking to you today, but we’ve come to the end of the interview. Do you have any final words for the people that have made it this far?

Thank you it has been fun talking about me. Be sure to always sign up to the Uncharted 2 meet as they are better then all the other meets.

  1. Nice to meet you :) I’m sure I’ve played against you in UC2 or at least in coop once or twice. Good luck in Uni ;)

    • forgot to mention, Porsche Challenge was awesome on PS1, I thought i was the only one who had actually played the game, bought it from the most unlikeliest places…..the Spar

    • Thank you, I think I have played UC2 with you. Porsche Challenge was a pretty good game from what I can remember who be nice to see it on the PSN for some nostalgia.

      • It was great fun with my brother. I remember when you finally unlock the black porsche which was the best. I still have the game in it’s case in my room :p

      • I think I’ll have to pick it up from amazon sometime then.

      • nice to meet you. Porsche Challenge was a great game I had forgot all about it till now brings back good memories.

  2. Nice to meet you sir. I only ever rented UC2 so never got involved with the online but I am going to buy UC3 so I would be up for joining some meets on that when it arrives.

    Porsche Challenge was probably the first game that got me into time trials. It was my mates game and he spent ages setting a time which I then beat after 2 laps. He then did over 100laps (the counter stopped at 99) trying to beat me but couldnt. He still hates me for that. :)

    • Always nice to welcome more to the Uncharted meets though the first Uncharted 3 meet is gonna be one of the busiest meets ever.

      Never been a fan of time trials as I’m not good at them.

      • They always are at the launch of a big new game!

  3. nice to meet u Bodachi =D

    but tef didny u forget to ask him about the Snog, Civil partnerchip and Smother??

    • didn’t*

      • I asked and he doesn’t really listen to the podcast, so it’d have been a bit too much like an episode of Blind Date. Just less questions, and more killing.

    • Hello there.

  4. Oh Hai There Bodachi! Nice to meet you! :3

  5. It’s nice to meet you mr thinks he is on a boat but says that just to annoy me, Aqua and Raindays at any of the meets.

    I forgot that you were still doing the UC2 meets. I would attend but for some reason UC2 now refuses to work with my controller during an online match.

    I remeber when we all rode that tank. I think it was one of the last meets that Tef did. Tis was funny. :D

    • You never have any proof that I am not on a boat. You need to get yourself and official controller my good sir or soon there will be no more Uncharted 2 meets!

      • I have no income atm thus i am current living on what i made from that temp job. I may have to skip UC3. *cries and sets fire to the corner of TSA towers*

        It depends on when i get a job which is like Demon Souls only ten times harder. :(

      • That is quite strange, your controller suddenly not being compatible with UC2… Never heard of that before, you sure it wasn’t just a one-time occurence?

      • It happened a lot during the UC3 Beta. It was unplayable for me. It kept happening at the UC2 meets. It is only UC that refuse to work with my controller online. :(

      • The only time you’re on a boat is during Red Dead Redemption, and even then you tend to kill al of us

  6. Nice to meet you Bodachi.

  7. Hello, congrats on now having your very own article only about you dedicated to you about you out on the web, was an interesting read.
    I was also genuinely touched, you mentioned my name in there, Brett. ;(

    It is as you say though, more folks need to sign up for the meets, they can be a whole lot of fun. Only not yesterday, since you had lost your mic and I ended up chatting with some american that was a wee bit scary.

    • Well of course I mentioned you. I’ve probably spend more time playing games and chatting with you more then anyone else on TSA.

  8. Nice to meet you Bodachi. I may of played a few games of UC2 with you as i got into the multiplayer very late in the game. Will be alot different with 3 though.

    • Uncharted 3 will be quite a bit different, Which I personally prefer over Uncharted 2. Look forward to seeing you in the meets if you join them.

  9. Hey Bodachi, had great fun on the Uncharted 2 meet last week. Unfortunately couldn’t make it this week, though. Hopefully I’ll be back for next week.

    • Hello there. Yeah last week was a little crazy. This week wasn’t the best as I lost my headset and spend most of the meet looking for it between matches.

      • Lol, sounds a bit frantic. I’m afraid I had to watch Doctor Who which started at 7.10. It was good :)

      • I watched it after the meet and it was very good.

      • I guess I could’ve used BBC iPlayer. Hmm

      • you should have just missed it, it’s awful television

      • How dare you good sir. One of the best programs on television.

      • it is too cringy, and makes me feel bad that it’s welsh as well

      • It’s probably the best BBC show on atm.

      • im afraid Motd will be after man utd and man city’s performances today. I’ve also got into Torchwood but i can’t put up with the gayness

  10. Nice to find out more about Bodachi. Will have to join you again soon in UC2. My internet is down currently so only have access to TSA through my phone, harsh times. Should be sorted by next weekend. Anyways just wanted to mention to The Lone Steven that one of my official pads also gets disconnected from my ps3. This only happens when playing UC online. I did find a solution though. Connecting the controller (wired old skool style) this alway stops me from being disconnected. Just wanted to share that as I’ve not found anyone else with this issue as well, until now.

    • I look forward to seeing you in the meet.
