Member of the Moment : QuiCKz Ninja

Time again for a new Member of the Moment. This time featuring a profile of a regular forum poster. If you only get your gaming news from 360voice, then it's likely this is the guy who brought it to your attention.

Gamertag: QuiCkz Ninja

Where are you at?
I am Alessio, I was born near Florence in Italy. I live in Italy, I would like to live in the U.S.

Have you been to the U.S. before? 

Where would you like to live in the U.S. and why?
Maybe California, that's where the famous people are. 

What do you do?
I am student, I played soccer throughout high school.

Any special story behind your gamertag? 
No, everybody calls me quickshot, quickz or quicky on COD series; also I love Ninja.

How long have you been gaming? 
I'm 18 and I've been playing video games for about 10 years and I will continue playing video games in the future :) 

What's your gaming setup like?
40" Samsung LED TV
Xbox 360
Xbox One
Turtle Beach headset
Scuf controller
Comfy desk chair
TV and Xbox are set up next to my desk, on a two drawer filing cabinet.

What's the first video game you ever played?
I don't know to be honest... I can't remember if we played Zelda on NES at someone's house first, and that's why my parents decided to get us one, or if we just got an NES and so Mario was my first game.

Favorite game genre? 
Shooting: I just love them. Call of Duty, Battlefield series but also prefer sports games.

Top 3 favorite games? 
COD Modern Warfare 2, Fifa 14, Forza Motorsport 5, 

Proudest Achievement and why?
Veteran gear level 100 from Gears of War 2 This was the biggest pain-in-the-ass achievement, when I finally heard that little popping sound, I was euphoric.

You recently crossed the 200k Gamerscore mark. Did you use any special game or achievement to pass that mark?

You're also closing in on 10,000 total achievements. Any plans yet on how you'll cross that milestone?
Yes my plan is play and have fun with Xbox One.

What are your impressions of the Xbox One so far?
I love my Xbox One! Easy to use, multitasking is a breeze, and Forza Motorsport 5 and Dead Rising 3 are fantastic games! Couldn't ask for a better console!

What features/apps would you like to see added in the future for Xbox One?
I think a green, orange and black Xbox One would look cool, and a new dashboard.

What's your biggest pet peeve about games? 
Random errors and crashing.

Any other hobbies or activities?
I like to play soccer.

Ever break out any real life ninja skills playing soccer?

How did you hear about 360voice?
Google search for gamerscore rankings. Although having 360voice in your motto is an excellent way to advertise for the site.

What keeps you coming back? 
That's easy. 360voice's community is the best on the web. I've been to many gaming sites where you just didn't feel welcomed at all and some of the forum mods were downright jerks. The 360voice community is the most friendly.

What kind of events would you like to see at 360voice?
Contest Winner badge, Microsoft Points, free games, free Live subscription, etc. Although our competitive nature drives us to spend countless hours and more money than is reasonable for the chance to win, I'm motivated by free stuff, badges, team building, appreciation of stats, and especially the competitive spirit.

Blogs Delayed 3/6

Our hosting provider rebooted the server for a patch last night right after midnight, which messed up polling. I've restarted, probably ETA for blogs around 2-3pm today.
