Spotlight on: HowdyDoodyDean30 May 20146663
Howdy folks! Its Friday and that means its time for another fan-Friday interview! This week we have HowdyDoody taking to the stage. A regular on the early access forums, but what about outside? Here we find out a little bit about “Mr Doody” both in and out of the OMD community!
- Name: Jeff “Howdy Doody”.
- Age: 42… So that’s “Mr. Doody” for all you young whipper snappers. Now get off my lawn!
- Home Town: Nashville, TN
Positive, Appreciative, Happy
- If you chose 3 words to describe your personality what would they be?
Country and Hard Rock, but almost always Country when playing games.
- Whats your favourite music?
I honestly don’t watch much TV, but I’m currently watching the NHL Playoffs. Go Preds….Um Next Year!
- Favourite TV shows at the moment?
I absolutely love my family. I do everything with my wife and 2 boys. So if we are playing hockey in the driveway or touring the South to watch some Dirt Track Racing I enjoy every moment. I also feel incredibly blessed to be able to coach my boys’ youth hockey teams. I love the opportunity to teach young girls and boys about winning/losing, success/failure, challenging themselves, the spirit of competition, and having fun.
- Most exciting life experience so far?
A friend and I both started playing it on xbox. We became obsessed with high scoring to the point where I bought the PC version just to make movies and join up with the Robot Community.
- How did you discover Orcs Must Die! ?
The Grinder. Part of my obsession with high scoring was trying to figure out this trap. How to keep it unclogged for higher combos made me daydream about it. I still would love to know the logic behind the trap jamming….hint hint Robot!
- Favourite OMD trap / trinket of all time?
KOBOLD RUNNERS! I have a love/hate relationship with these little @#$!%^&*!
- Which minion frustrates you the most when you see it on the battlefield?
Love the changes. They probably still need a few tweaks, but overall I love where they are right now. Any character that has a metal mo-hawk should be a rock-star!
- What do you think about the recent Guardian buff – good or bad?
Don’t think of this game as OMD and don’t think of it as a MOBA. You have to think of it as both…at the same time! This game is a roller-coaster ride from the second it starts until it ends. I feel this game is truly special and has made all the other games I was playing seem sooooo slooooow!
- If you could give the community a top tip for OMDU success – what would it be?
A Kobold Runner Hero! I want to be able to aggravate the hell out of real players as much as these little guys drove me insane. (** Must include a skill that lets me spam that laugh!)
- Is there anything missing in OMDU that you would like to see implemented?
- Is there anything you would like to say to all the OMD fans out there right now?
Just know that every time I whoop you all, that you got beat by a guy in his 40’s, has a bald spot, and drives a minivan full of kids hockey gear!
Thanks for taking part Howdy. Good luck with the Hockey coaching!
