Previous Community Member Spotlights


We’re back with another Community Spotlight! Every month, this series highlights one of our community members on Discord. This month, we learned more about Gunghir!

Rich

Tell us a little about yourself!

Gunghir

I love collecting retro games, trying out new tech, 3d printing, tinkering on FPGA’s, graphical design (i have studied packaging design), music synths (both analog or DAW based), and sailing.

Rich

How long have you been a part of the SwitchRPG community?

Gunghir

More than 1 year I think?

Rich

How did you find SwitchRPG.com?

Gunghir

I was looking for a smaller Switch community focused on RPGs.

Rich

How old were you when you first got into gaming, and what got you into it?

Gunghir

I think I was about five when I got an old Amstrad PC (PC1512) with Elite on it. I tried programming my own Tamagotchi in QBASIC on it, and after that I got a Megadrive. Been collecting ever since – will probably never stop doing that, even if I lack time to play the games.

Rich

What is your favorite RPG subgenre?

Gunghir

I guess I like grindy RPGs but it really depends on my mood. I do prefer sprite based rpgs. Is the metroidvania genre a rpg subgenre? Then I pick that one.

Rich

What are some of your favorite RPGs?

Gunghir

Breath of Fire 2, Tales of Phantasia (english hack) Lufia 2, Pokemon Red, Final Fantasy 12, Diablo 3, Castlevania SOTN, Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion, Metroid Zero Mission, and Disgaea 1.

Rich

What RPGs on Switch are you currently playing?

Gunghir

Tokyo Mirage Sessions Encore, Paper Mario RPG, and Diablo 3. My backlog is scary, but I do intend to play all of the games I discovered thanks to Switch RPG. Oh, and Breath of the Wild.

Rich

What is your favorite thing about the SwitchRPG community?

Gunghir

No toxic people. Very friendly users. Pretty active.

Rich

What game or series would you like to see come to Switch?

Gunghir

All the GBA Castlevanias. Remakes of both Metroid GBA games (sprite-based).

Rich

What Switch titles are you currently anticipating the most?

Gunghir

Metroid Prime 4, BOTW 2, and Disgaea 6.

Rich

What is your fondest Nintendo memory?

Gunghir

Beating the Sonic 2 boss for the first time with my best friend (was a Sega kid, can’t help it).

Rich

Anything else you would like to say?

Gunghir

Go play Call Of Duty: Cold War. It has this zombie mode.
