Who are you? IRL and gamer Tag

My name is Alex and I go by TubbyAU online. I've been gaming all my life and be a part of the content creation scene in one form or another for 10 years now.

What platforms do you create content on?

twitch is my main platform but I do make youtube videos as well.

What is your all-time favourite game?

The fable series for sure, one of the first RPG games I played and the way the game changes with your decisions, not only how your character looks but how the NPC's react to you gives you a different playstyle every time you play.

If you could be one video game character who would it be and why?

My character from fable, it would be cool to have the use of will magic and also he is just so cool.

Where would you like to be in 1 year?

I would ultimately like to be growing on all platforms, and build a nice community where everyone is welcome and can hang out and forget about their problems even for a little bit and just have a laugh.

What or who got you into gaming?

I have been gaming for as long as I can remember, I had a pc in my room from a really young age that had a slot car game on it, as well as my Nintendo 64 in the lounge room and the family pc in the study that I would play the OG rainbow six on. Most of my early childhood memories were of gaming whether it being completing legend of Zelda Ocarina of time at age 5 or watching my dad play resident evil, it’s been apart of who I am since day one.

What do you think of Quantum Energy Drink? 

It is a great healthy alternative to the other brands out there and its good to support local brands as well.

What is 1 piece of advice for someone starting out?

Don't play games because they are popular, play what you enjoy and you will have a better time doing it, make friends and just have fun.

What is your favourite content creation moment?

Getting to meet friends from all over the world and getting to know people I would never have the chance to meet otherwise, I went to PAX Aus last year and met so many of my twitch friends IRL that I never would have known without streaming.

Who is your favourite streamer or YT'er? And why?

My friend Igotchusukaa I've been following him for nearly 10 years since he was doing youtube videos, and now he is streaming and growing immensely. I respect his grind and his passion for what he does.

What is your favourite gaming snack?

definitely, lollies, as my stream has seen in the past I am particularly keen on sour lollies, but I also have horrible flavored jelly beans that my chat likes to punish me by making me eat as well.

What's your favourite thing to do outside gaming?

go down to the beach and just watch the waves, I could sit there for hours in silence just watching the water, it's like my serenity.

Who outside of gaming do you look up to as a role model or idol?

the professional wrestler edge, he suffered a debilitating back injury that ended his career but he didn't let that stop him he worked hard to keep in shape and eventually he was medically cleared to wrestle again after 9 years, most people would have just been ok I'm done he fought to get back.
