Hello there,

If you get a chance pick up the lastest issue of the 360-Gamer mag as none other then UKRockers is the featured clan. (we could of done with this about a year plus ago but never mind)

I sent them two versions of text but they seem to have put in the older version so some members answers are not added so we are sorry about this and some members gamertags have chanced since the printing of this article.

Anyway here is what you will see in the magazine. (Issue Number 73)

Overview

Clan Name: UKRockers

Website address: http://www.UKRockers.co.uk

Clan logo (please send this as an attachment in your e-mail): Attached to email

Number of members (of the clan, not the website): 30 on 360

A quick history of the clan: Formed in 2000, being a full on multi format online gaming clan and community. Focussed mainly on Xbox then Xbox 360 since release, and PC, due to ease of use on the like of Xbox 360 to set meetups and clan matches. We still have 'fun' members on nearly all other formats.
Have won a number of Ladders as part of ladder websites as well as raising money for charity.

What games do you play regularly?
Left 4 Dead 2 , COD4, Modern Warfare 2 , The Beatles: Rockband, Xbox Live Arcade Titles

What's the clan's philosophy?
'Life's A Game Insert More Credits' - That has always been our feeling and our philosophy that we are all here to play games, be it a hobbie or passion, be it for clan matches, or meetups, we intended to form a clan and community for the fun (meetups) and serious (clan matches) gamers out there. We feel we have certainly done that over the years, and just something that we have all enjoyed being a part of.

Are you recruiting and what do you look for in members?
We are recruiting yes , for games such as Left 4 Dead 2 and Modern Warfare 2 . We are looking for people who want to play for fun as well as serious when the time comes. We recently have started out creating new teams from scratch, so be are looked to reboot UKRockers.

We are also marking our 10th Anniversary by meeting up on all the games which were major factors within UKRockers, on the 10th day each month within 2010, on the likes of Call Of Duty 2, Saints Row, Halo 2, Return To Castle Wolfenstein, and so on. Why not join us.



Questions
(To be answered by a couple of clan members)

Do you think downloadable game content costs too much?

UKR Aku - Yea some of it does

UKR DreamcastUK – Course it does seeing as when the company makes it a 'Game of the Year' pack it comes free with it, so I am not gonna buy the game again to get the content for free when the game goes cheaper then the content.

UKR Sam - DLC can be a bit pricey for most things especially for map packs but there
are a few things worth the price tag like the GTA IV DLC

UKR Show - In some cases yes, depends on the quality and quantity of the content. It also makes you think twice on buying content, when you hear from the like of Ubisoft, who have stated that the upcoming DLC packs for Assassins Creed 2, were taken out of the full game, even when they were already included, just for the use of DLC.

What games are you most looking forward to (not released within the next two
months)?

UKR DreamcastUK – Alan Wake , I am Alive , Max Payne 3, Mafia 2, Postal III

UKR Limitz - Halo Reach, Mx vs Atv Reflex and Mass Effect 2

UKR Sam - Alien Vs Predator , Super Street Fighter IV,

UKR Show - Alan Wake, BioShock 2, Metro 2033, Shenmue III (Please Sega/Microsoft)

What's your all-time favourite Xbox 360 game?

UKR DreamcastUK – Tough, has to be out of either the Left 4 Dead series, or the amazing Bioshock.

UKR Limitz - Left 4 Dead, it has the best Co-op gameplay.

UKR Sam - All time favourite, Call of Duty 2

UKR Show - All for different reasons, Call of Duty 3, Condemned or Saints Row.

What do you think of Project Natal?

UKR DreamcastUK – For what it is , it looks ok not sure if it will kick off well needs the right marketing , not many casual gamers have 360's

UKR Limitz - It looks amazing and may beat the wii by far with its new wirless technology

UKR Sam - Looks more like a gimmick than something that would improve gaming just because other people are doing it doesn't mean microsoft should too.

UKR Show - Im not too impressed at all, but give us some hands on, and it could be a different story.

If you could combine any two games to make one awesome game, what would it be?

UKR DreamcastUK – Good Question there is so many games that spring to mind to mixing Halo 3 with The House of the Dead 3 now that would be interesting... wait isnt that pretty much Left 4 Dead.... Mmmm Left 4 Dead!

UKR Show - Imagine the likes of a FPS, like on the scale of the Battlefield franchise, mixed with an flight game, like HAWK, yet while im on the ground asking for an air strike, it appears on your game, while flying, as a side objective, 2 totally single games, but if both your both online at the same time, both games interact.
