He is a complex individual. Ask him his background, he is Filipino, German, and Russian. He enjoys gaming, and the obvious gaming system to ask about is the Wii, but there is much more, especially his gaming on Kongregate. So without waiting any longer, let’s begin with the human jigsaw puzzle that would leave Harry Houdini head scratching(anyone have some border pieces?)...

WiiPlayer113 .

Shhhh... I’m not really Russian. I guess the reason I am so confusing is because I am really all over the place. I’ve asked my friends before how to describe me, and they couldn’t. I can’t even describe myself. I’m like a web of contradictions, I guess. For example, I can’t say I’m a loud crazy person, because I can be extremely shy and passive sometimes, and I can’t say I’m shy and passive because I can be loud and crazy sometimes. It’s weird.

Do you mind if I ask your real name?

My real name is Justin, I hate it. It’s such a boring name. If you asked me what I would want to change it too, I wouldn’t know.

Where do you hail from, WiiPlayer113?

USA, Florida. I hate it too.

Sorry to hear that about Florida, where would you like to move to?

It’s not Florida I dislike, it’s the USA. I love Florida. The weather is amazing, mild in the winter, really hot in the Summer. Plus beaches, they’re pretty cool. I don’t really like being in America, though. I don’t like the government we have here. Also, Americans think they’re the best at everything, when sometimes, they aren’t. It’s hard to explain. They’re so much hate for America from people in many countries. There are negative connotations to Americans which I am not and don’t want to be associated with. I don’t know where I would move to, maybe Australia.

How did you come about selecting the username WiiPlayer113?

Uhm, I came upon Kongregate back in 2008, right in the middle of my obsession with the Nintendo Wii, so I became the one and only WiiPlayer. 113 is my birthday. 11/3, November 3rd. I don’t necessarily like my username anymore, I would change it if I had the chance. Trolls often try to humor themselves with the classic “lulz u play with ur wii” line.

Whoa, your avatar is one angry…bluebird?

Omg, It’s Falco Lombardi. You know, that one guy from Star Fox? I don’t know why I would know this, since I’ve never played it. I have played him in Super Smash Bros Brawl, my favorite video game, so yeah. The avatar itself is from a VG Cats comic, right here. Good stuff.

How did you find Kongregate?

An IRL friend introduced it to me one day, when I was in 7th grade, I think. Maybe 8th. Whichever grade I was in, it was on May 24th, 2008. His username here is EternalRains. He’s a cool guy, but not active. Yay over 4 years on Kong!

“Hobbies: Kongregate, Golfing, Running,” do you like the Turbo Golf game on Kongregate?

I have never played it. But I dislike it just by looking at it. It gives a bunch of phonies a reason to say “I like golf because I like Turbo Golf”. It probably isn’t close at all to real golf. But who knows? I’ve never played it.

What is your favorite game on Kongregate?

The Mardek Series, for sure. I absolutely love those games, as well as all of Pseudolonewolf’s other games, such as Raider, which I also absolutely love. Other games which I enjoy playing are Frontier, Run Elephant Run, and Racing Comrade! I also like the games that are supposed to make you feel something, like in The Company of Myself, I love it when I get sad during a game. I don’t know why.


Do you have a favorite chat room?

My favorite chat room is Labyrinth, run by the awesome MadJedi. I kinda want to change rooms, though, too many people I know are there. SO if anyone knows of a good chat room, let me know. I love the Kongregate forums, and the Forum Games.

Speaking of Forum Games, is there any other area of the forums you enjoy? Any friends out there you want to give a shout-out?

I have a general dislike for OT. GENERAL DISLIKE. I don’t want any hate because any OTers think I hate them. I don’t want to give a shout out to anyone. Friends? Who needs them? I don’t. I have some good acquaintances, but no really great friends. I used too, but not anymore.

You never know, you might surprise yourself and make some great friends today. What do you mean by not anymore?

I mean, in real life I have friends, including good friends. On Kongregate, I choose to not really get to know people. I don’t know why. I have some Kongregate people as friends on Facebook, though, some of my closer Kongregate friends. I don’t really talk in chat except for the “Hey guys”, and the “I’m doing well, you?”. I dunno, it’s weird. I’m usually playing tourney games or playing Realm of the Mad God more recently.

I get the impression from your profile that family and values(you mentioned your twin sister, religion, politics) are important to you.

My family is really important to me. Not just immediate family, but extended family. Right now, in my immediate family, it’s just me and my dad. You know my sister died almost nine years ago, but my mom also died from cancer a little over five months ago. It’s sad, but you have to carry on with life. Nothing stops for you. You have to keep up with life. We still will meet up with my mom’s side of the family for holidays, like Christmas and Thanksgiving, which is a lot of fun. I have so many cousins on that side of the family, it’s crazy, I have like 30. My dad and I don’t really interact all that much with my dad’s side of the family, since a bunch of them are still in the Philippines. My whole family is Christian. We go to church nearly every week, and stuff like that. I won’t waste my time arguing with anyone about religion, though. I can’t convince someone who has already made up their mind. My political values are important to me, not necessarily my family. I’m a Socialist. I try to hide that in real life, because I can. I’ll probably change my political party later in life, who knows?

How do you like Kongregate+?

I like Kongregate+ a lot. I don’t really use any of the features, though. I’ve never played any beta games, I have never created a private room, and I can’t remember anything else that you can do with K+. I do know that you can have a profile skin, and I have one, which I like. The no ads is nice, too. My favorite feature is the K+ next to your name in Kongregate chat. I love that thing, I really do. It makes me feel better about myself and gives me a feeling that I am better than anyone who doesn’t have a K+, but I’m not.

Please share some of your forum games experiences. It looks like a lot of fun for the uninitiated like me.

More recently, I haven’t been as active in the Forum Games forums. But when I am there, I generally participate in the mafia games, or gaming competition games. I like the Kongregate forums a lot more. The gaming tourneys there are my favorite. Yeah, they are a lot of fun.

Speaking of classic lines(“lulz u enjoy ur wii”), do you have any phrases you are known for or like, quotes from others perhaps?

On Kongregate, not really. In real life, however, the lines I use most regularly are “k”, just to annoy people in my lack of caring of what they have to say, “Uh huh”, a simplistic replacement for the word “yes”, which takes a lot less effort and is also used when I don’t really care what the person is saying, but “k” isn’t usable, and finally “Have a nice/good day”, I use this phrase a lot. I use it in public when I am around my friends, I tell almost everyone I talk to “have a nice day” or “have a good day”, they can be used interchangeably. I also say it to random people sometimes, just because. My friends think it’s funny, so I keep doing it.

What do you like to do when you’re not on Kongregate?

Well, now when I am not on Kongregate, since my Summer vacation just ended, I am in school or am doing homework, I guess. If you mean what do I do in my free time when not on Kong, I am either at a friend’s house, golfing, reading, working out, sleeping, eating, and just living my life.

I know you like to read. Do you have a favorite book?

I do enjoy reading, my favorite book is The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. I absolutely love that book. It’s probably because I can connect with the main character, Holden Caulfield. I see myself as being very similar to him, in terms of his view on the world. He’s very anti-society, like me, he’s very cynical, and he can hate hypocrites, and still be one himself. I’m a lot cleaner than him, though, I’m not a cusser, I don’t drink or smoke or anything. Also, I haven’t been kicked out of schools or anything like that. Anyways, it’s a terrific book. I love the way it is written, too, as a stream of consciousness from the narrator, Holden’s, mind. You should read it. Do it.

Do you have any other favorite books, or books you are looking forward to reading?

Other favorite books of mine are Animal Farm, by George Orwell, The Lord of the Flies, by William Golding, and 1984, also by George Orwell. There are some books that I am looking forward to reading, included are Catch-22, All the King’s Men, Atlas Shrugged, and Brave New World.

You’re very smart WiiPlayer113. What are you studying in school?

I am? Ok, how would you know this? Anyways, since I am still a senior in high school, what I will be actually studying in college will be in the next question, for plans for the future. So right now, I’m in this high school program called the AICE program. It’s an international advanced program run by Cambridge University in England. I think it’s also known in other countries as the “CIE” program. It’s weird, I met another Kongregator who was in this program too, who lived in New Zealand. Anyways, my schedule this year is AICE A-level Global Perspectives, AICE A-level English Literature II, AP C Physics, AP BC Calculus, AICE A-level Economics/AP US Government and Politics(both a semester), and AICE AS-level General Paper. General Paper is this class where basically you have to write essays about your opinion on controversial issues today, as well as have in-class debates about them and stuff. Seems like fun, but I’m only a couple days into it, so we’ll see.

What are your plans for the future?

After high school, I plan to attend college. Right now I’m in the applying process. I am applying to the University of Florida, Florida State University, the University of Chicago, Stanford, Harvard, and Purdue. No matter which of these I get accepted into, I will probably end up at the University of Florida because I have a full ride with a Bright Futures Scholarship, plus my parents have been investing in a Florida prepaid college plan since like freshman year, which I can only use if I go to a Florida college. I dunno, I really liked the University of Chicago too. I toured it, and it was really really really nice. Anyways, right now I want to dual major in Political Science and Economics. Who knows, though? I don’t have to declare a major until like my third year of college, so my interests may change before then. “I mean how do you know what you’re going to do until you do it? The answer is, you don’t.” -J.D. Salinger

Are you a Brony?

No, I am not a brony. I have seen My Little Pony, though, the first four episodes to be exact. I was encouraged to watch it by members of Labyrinth, MadJedi and Es337 are two I remember. I watched it, and it wasn’t bad. Haven’t cared enough to watch it since. I don’t mind bronies. I used to hate them and not understand them at all, but then I met some, in real life, and on Kongregate, and I don’t hate them anymore. I have had a brony discussion in real life before, too, I told him my favorite pony was Fluttershy. His was Pinkie Pie. I’m still not a brony, though.

Vampire hunting, Zombie apocalypse, any protips would be appreciated to survive either one.

Neither of those events are possible, so I do not have any protips. Have a nice day.

Megaman is actually malware? Is this propaganda from Dr. Light, or is Megaman a terrorist? Do you have any conspiracy theories or unknown backstories to games you want to share?
Megaman as Malware

I have never played Megaman and know nothing about it, but assuming the gameplay that the article states is correct, I would say that the whole game is indeed propaganda from Dr. Light. He is obviously jealous of Dr. Wily and is using MegaMan to take him down and take all of the things he has created, as Megaman gets the powers of the robot things when he destroys them. He wants us, the players, to believe that what he is doing is right by making up some story about Dr. Wily in order for us to play as MegaMan, and take him down.

What do you think of roleplay in chat?

Roleplay in chat? I’m generally against it. I’ve never seen the point in it. I think that’s all I have to say about that.


What are your thoughts on global warming, especially considering this most recent piece of questionable visual evidence?


That visual evidence is obviously fake as penguins are only located in the southern hemisphere, and polar bears are only located in the northern hemisphere. Also, the polar bear smoking is also near impossible, as they don’t have thumbs, so lighting the cigarette is unlikely. No matter which hemisphere they are in, they probably are not enjoying those drinks all that much, because they are most likely frozen solid.

What’s your favorite quote, something you say or from someone else. Here’s a few if you want one/some to talk about:

“Kitty!” ~Boo, Monster’s Inc.

Cute. Moving on...

“Most ignorance is vincible ignorance. We don’t know because we don’t want to know.” ~Aldous Huxley

This is a great quote, and very true. Ignorance is bliss. If you become aware of half of the things going on in the world around us, we would all be overly stressed about what is going on. By not knowing about it, it’s like it’s not even there. Ohey, Huxley is the author of Brave New World. So I guess that makes this quote even better.

“Friends! Help! A guinea pig tricked me!” ~Dr. Zoidberg, Futurama

I don’t like Futurama, nor the quote.

“Shut up Brain! I have friends now. I don’t need you anymore!” ~Lisa Simpson, Simpsons

I don’t like the Simpsons either, but this is a decent quote, true as well. When we are around our friends, we don’t really think about what we are doing and just blindly go along with them either because we don’t want to anger them, or disappoint them. It’s not very smart of us. In a group of people, people tend to not think individually as when they are not in a group.


Your comments on this photo from the Mars Curiosity rover?


That’s nice. Come on, America, we already have one planet, we don’t need another. We’re greedy, though, so yeah.

Poetry. Are you a fan?
Here are some John Tottenham poems for you to like or hate or ignore.


Another Day
Take some initiative…
Do something with your life:
I get up from the sofa,
Walk across to the table
And write these words
Down on a piece of paper.
Then I return to the sofa and
Fall asleep.

Life Without Work
To do nothing
In this day and age,
When so much pointless work
Is being produced,
Could almost be considered an achievement.
It all compares most unfavorably
With my own imaginary
Body of work.

The Measure of a Man
A long time ago I made a decision
To become a failure. It wasn’t
As easy as I thought: browsing through life
From one distraction to the next, while waiting
For the last lost moment to become unseizable.
As if there were some fundamental honesty
To not striving: There wasn’t. –
I suspected it all along.

The Arrival
For years on end I have been sitting here
Impatiently awaiting potency; some explosive revelatory surge
That will carry me away and permit no looking back.
But this moment of deliverance has not arrived,
And I have done nothing to hasten it.
Perhaps it doesn’t matter.
Perhaps I wasn’t meant to do anything:
In which case, I have succeeded admirably.

Yes, I like poetry, it’s nice. I’ll comment on all of these poems at the same time. This John Tottenham guys seems really lazy. It seems like he’s been given the potential to do great things in this world, but he has turned down all of them because it involves putting in effort. Yet he tries to be a failure, but even that is too difficult for him, he’s not dedicated enough to do nothing, so therefore does he do something? But something takes effort, which all he wants to do is sleep and relax, so there is a paradox here. In the fourth poem, he describes wanting something to change in his life, carry him away and never look back. Yet this is obviously not going to happen for him, and he has to exert effort himself to change things. It’s a Catch 22. If this is really this guy’s life, I pity him. On a different note, my favorite poem is Elegy for My Father’s Father, by James K Baxter, it’s a great poem.

“Favorite Bands: The Beatles, Electric Light Orchestra, Coldplay.” Congratulations, all three bands decided to perform a concert to celebrate you. What would be the setlist(order of songs), and what would you plan for the concert?

Omg, this is a crazy question. But I like that. Anyways, assuming that two of the Beatles are not dead, I would obviously choose my favorite songs by them as the setlist. I’m not really a huge fan of ELO anymore, but I’ll include some songs by them anyways. So, uh, the order would be... starting with the Beatles, Cry Baby Cry, I’m only Sleeping, Honey Pie, Sexy Sadie, Mother Nature’s Son, For No One, I Will, Blackbird, Piggies, Rocky Raccoon, Martha My Dear, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Lovely Rita, Fixing a Hole, She’s Leaving Home, Eleanor Rigby, Here There, and Everywhere, And Your Bird Can Sing, I’ll Follow the Sun, You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away, I’ve Just Seen a Face, Yesterday, Drive My Car, Norwegian Wood, Think for Yourself, In My Life, Hey Bulldog, Maxwell’s Silver Hammer, Octopus’s Garden, You Never Give Me Your Money, Sun King, Mean Mr. Mustard, Polythene Pam, She Came in Through the Bathroom Window, Golden Slumbers, Carry that Weight, The End, Her Majesty, Dig a Pony, I’ve Got a Feeling, Two of Us, Magical Mystery Tour, The Fool on the Hill, Flying, Blue Jay Way, Hello, Goodbye, Penny Lane, Long Tall Sally, We Can Work it Out, The Ballad of John and Yoko, and Across the Universe. Then, onto ELO, I would have them play, Mr. Blue Sky, Telephone Line, Wild West Hero, Xanadu, Little Town Flirt, Don’t Bring Me Down, and The Diary of Horace Wimp. For Coldplay, I would have them play, Amsterdam, Cemeteries of London, Charlie Brown, Christmas Lights, Death and All his Friends, Don’t Let it Break Your Heart, Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, Fix You, Glass of Water, The Goldrush, Hurts Like Heaven, In My Place, Lost?, Lovers in Japan, A Message, Moving to Mars, Now My Feet Won’t Touch the Ground, Paradise, Politik, Postcards from Far Away, Prospekt’s March/Poppyfields, Rainy Day, A RUsh of Blood to the Head, The Scientist, Speed of Sound, Strawberry Swing, Swallowed in the Sea, Till Kingdom Come, UFO, Up in Flames, Up With the Birds, Us Against the World, Violet Hill, Viva La Lida, Warning SIgn, The World Turned Upside Down, and Yes. That’s it. Really long concert I guess. The location is irrelevant, I wouldn’t have a theme, and I would invite only myself.

I can see why you like this poem WiiPlayer113. It reminds me of family and those close to me.

James K. Baxter
Elegy For My Father’s Father

He knew in the hour he died
That his heart had never spoken
In eighty years of days.
O for the tall tower broken
Memorial is denied:
And the unchanging cairn
That pipes could set ablaze
An aaronsrod and blossom.
They stood by the graveside
From his bitter veins born
And mourned him in their fashion.
A chain of sods in a day
He could slice and build
High as the head of a man
And a flowering cherry tree
On his walking shoulder held
Under the lion sun.
When he was old and blind
He sat in a curved chair
All day by the kitchen fire.
Many nights he had seen
The stars in their drunken dancing
Through the burning-glass of his mind
And sober knew the green
Boughs of heaven folding
The winter world in their hand.
The pride of his heart was dumb.
He knew in the hour he died
That his heart had never spoken
In song or bridal bed.
And the naked thought fell back
To a house by the waterside
And the leaves the wind had shaken
Then for a child’s sake:
To waves all night awake
With the dark mouths of the dead.
The tongues of water spoke
And his heart was unafraid.

I don’t want to start an argument or political discussion, but how much of the rest of the world have you actually seen? Because there’s a whole lot of it that’s really shitty.

I just like feeling things, I guess. In real life, there’s not that much that makes me feel an emotion anymore. For some reason, playing games that are sad makes me feel sad. But it’s a good sad feeling, and that good sad feeling makes me happy. It’s really hard to explain. Maybe these games remind me of the past, for some reason, and how I want to go back there. Reminding myself of the past makes me sad, but it also makes me happy. Get it? You probably don’t, not even I get it.

That’s probably not going to happen. I’m always dissatisfied with how and where I am. I want change, I want to try new things, even if I will absolutely hate it. If I were to change chat rooms, I would eventually grow tired of that chat room and move again. I really love Labyrinth, yet I’m dissatisfied. It’s really weird.

I have seen literally none of the rest of the world. I’m living in my own fantasy world where maybe there will somewhere out there that is right for me. It’s the same as the chat rooms, I’m dissatisfied with where I am, but other places I go to are probably worse and I would grow tired of them as well.

If you want to keep your sanity, don’t read Brave New World.

(Oh who am I kidding—you’re already crazy. But that’s why we like you.)

But yeah. I totally identify with the whole “self-contradiction” thing, as well as the idea of never being satisfied.

Political Science, huh? One of my favorite politics-related quotes is “Anyone who is smart enough to be a good leader is also smart enough to steer clear of politics”.

And Turbo Golf is nothing like golf.

But I don’t know—for some reason, I’ve always seen myself as more similar to Wii than to pretty much any other Kongregator.
