Ross Mills

Name: Mr. Ross Stewart Mills


Moniker: "Ross Mills" (Although people in REAL LIFE call me "Oz". It's a backwards internet handle)

Sex: Male

Country of Residence: England

Education: Currently in my second year of studying BSc Computer Games Technology at Liverpool John Moores University.

How would we know you: I have been posting (sometimes excessively) at for a few years now. I have also created a few Halo movies, such as Halo Rhapsody, Carol of the Marines, and a couple of less good ones. I am also infamous for pointing out random information on the internet about Halo, such as mentions in comics, or other items.

Honestly I'm not sure why many would know me, and I was pleasantly surprised to be asked to do this interview, but it's scary that people in Real Life (that place you go to hand over physical money to buy games if they're sold out online) have said "You're THAT Ross Mills?".

I am also the crazy guy with the Marathon Tattoo on my arm, Halo 2 logo poorly shaved in my head. and Halo Font in a tattoo on my back.

Favourite Games: Halo, Halo 2, Magic: The Gathering (Card Game), Massive Assault, Beyond Good and Evil, Uplink, Myth, Myth 2.

Gaming Roles: I'm a big solo game player, I really enjoy the Rambo style of solo slayer, thus you won't see me in team games that much. I do enjoy them, especially CTF in Halo: CE, but Halo 2 just hasn't caught me so much in that yet. But when playing Real-Time strategy games, I often take the defensive in order to make myself appear weak (while building nuke silos behind my frontlines)

Gaming Rig(s):
P4 1.7GHz Intel with 512 RAM and an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro.
XBox with 4 controllers.
Gameboy Colour.
I'm also about to trade Steel Battalion in for a Nintendo DS.

Favourite Book: The Princess Bride by S. Morgenstein.

Favourite Movie: The Princess Bride.

Hobbies / Activities / Interests:Gaming, Magic: The Gathering tournaments and clubs, I'm a big fan of the pub with my friends, Christianity is a major interest of mine (understatement of the year).

Accomplishments / Achievements: Honestly, the fact that I am living on my own, away from my parents, and surviving on less money than would feed a hamster. I am saying that my current life is a fantastic achievement, and I don't always realise what I have. That, and getting my name in the credits for Lionhead game "Fable".

Blurb: "The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling." - 1 Peter, 4:7-9 (Today's Bible Verse of the Day)
