The Very First Community Spotlight!

The beginning of another new feature on PlayXBLA  has arrived! Every Tuesday you can expect either a blog post from one of the rad PlayXBLA followers or a spotlight on who they are! Today is a spotlight on Mr Matthew McLean! Click Read More to find out what his favorite XBLA titles are, what keeps him coming back for more, and his thoughts on Emus! 

PlayXBLA: How would you like to be referred to? Your IRL name or Your Gamer Tag?

Matthew McLean: Just call me by my real name: Matthew McLean

PlayXBLA: Speaking of your GT, what is it?

Matthew McLean: My gamertag is Azazel Hellion3. 10 points to whoever correctly guess where I picked my name from.

PlayXBLA: How many XBLA games would you say you owned?

Matthew McLean: According to Raptr, I own 191 XBLA games, so I am going to guess that I really have about 130 purchased games. I have some games I never even played.

PlayXBLA: What’s your top 3 favorite XBLA titles?

Matthew McLean: My favorite games are Comic Jumper, Limbo and Pinball FX2. I play far too much Pinball.

PlayXBLA: How did you first find out about PlayXBLA?

Matthew McLean: When it first game out. On the first Xbox. I just had to play Galaga.  And that was the first game I bought on my Xbox 360 too.

PlayXBLA: What keeps you coming back to visit our site?

Matthew McLean: All the funny comments on the pictures of the day for one thing. Plus the growing community and exclusive information from Microsoft.

PlayXBLA: Alight now to dig deep… ready for some personal questions???

Matthew McLean: Wait… Deep breath… Okay, I’m ready.

PlayXBLA: If you had a snail that could magically grant wishes, what would you name it?

Matthew McLean: Dinner. Because how do you communicate with a snail?










PlayXBLA: Are you proud of me?

Matthew McLean: I suppose I should be proud of you, but I have to ask: What did you do for me today?

PlayXBLA: Made this Rad face? ——————————>





PlayXBLA: What is your favorite movie of all time?

Matthew McLean: My real favorite is Citizen Kane, that still amazes me even though it came out in 1941. Who films like that? Let alone build a set with a ceiling? Otherwise it is Blade Runner.

PlayXBLA: Favorite Word?

Matthew McLean: Superficial. Seriously, that would just sounds like a great compliment, but really it’s not.

PlayXBLA: What’s A Emu?.

Matthew McLean: I don’t know. What’s a duck.








PlayXBLA: Best Quality?

Matthew McLean: The ability to strange non-relevant trivia out of my head. Because knowing is half the battle. Of course, no one ever told me what the other half was, so there you go.

PlayXBLA: Weirdest Habit?

Matthew McLean: Answering weird questionnaires.Either that or eating cookies off the floor. It’s toss up.

PlayXBLA: What question should I have asked?

Matthew McLean: How do I become a better person?

PlayXBLA: hmmmmm what is the answer to that? Looking for answers in the comments kids!


Hope you all enjoyed this amazing -make Barbara Walters cry- I should be nominated for an ESPY – Community Spotlight Interview! Feel free to leave your feedback, questions, and overall praise of Mr. McLean’s patience for my dumb questions in the comments below!

    Great job – both of yinz!

    • XBLA_Alex

      <3 sauce :)

      Thanks. I hope hope I made someone laugh a little bit on here. At least a little chuckle.

    I should correct one thing on there… I miss read one of the questions. “How did you find out about PlayXBLA?” For some reason my brain translated that into “How did you find out about XBLA?” So here is the real answer.


    I was magically ended up here from somewhere else. So I am going to blame spam. Or Twitter. But mostly spam.

    Boy I really have to stop eating spam.

    • http://twitter.com/sansglu10 sans gluten

      Never stop eating SPAM… it’s GLUTEN FREE!!!

      …and can be turned into sushi.

        Man, you can make almost everything gluten free (luckily), if you just give it time and dedication. The real challenge is making interesting food for vegans that are sans gluten as the same time. I consider my self pretty skilled in cooking given my age (compared to other people at my age, who seem to be on an instant ramen diet…), but it still boggles my mind what the shit I’m gonna make whenever I have that part of my family over (without just serving the same shit every time)

        • http://twitter.com/sansglu10 sans gluten

          Actually – You CAN’T make almost everything GF, but you can make something somewhat similar that IS GF. I can attach four wheels to a log and call it my car, but it will NEVER be a Cadillac… even if I add some sweet rims – still not a Cadillac.

          I’m sure you can serve your family the same variety of foods you feed yourself, but just add bacon to theirs… problem solved ;)

        Yeah I like:

        Egg and spam
        Egg, bacon and spam
        Egg, bacon, sausage and spam
        Spam, bacon, sausage and spam
        Spam, egg, spam, spam, bacon and spam
        Spam, sausage, spam, spam, spam, bacon, spam tomato and spam
        Spam, spam, spam, egg and spam
        Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, baked beans, spam, spam, spam and spam.

    And I am so happy to be the first guinea pig. We should do this again. I do have to find out how I got this rash though.

    Actually I had a good laugh.


    Wow, just creeped myself out there for a minute….

    But I am proud of you now. I am glowing with pride for you. I am so proud for you at this moment, words simply fail me.

    • XBLA_Alex

      AWW *snarf*

  • http://twitter.com/Terrificy Jake

    Your name comes from the Nightcrawler comics, right?

    • XBLA_Alex

      I’m curious myself! :)

      • http://twitter.com/Azazel_Hellion3 Matthew McLean

        Nope. I know who you are thinking of from the X-men comics, and he was in the X-men: First Class movie, but I picked the name out far before that character was ever introduced. I just added the last name because it sounded cooler. Somehow I can’t get my first gamertag back. I would really like to drop the 3 from my name.

    Really good interview, but 191 GAMES! WOW! I don’t think I’ve purchased that many games in my life…… Just a little envious over here.

    • XBLA_Alex

        I think I know who to add to my XboxLive Friends list, I mean he has so many if I need someone to play co-op with or something theres a good chance.

        • http://twitter.com/Azazel_Hellion3 Matthew McLean

          Sure, add me to your friends list in case you want to play Boogie Bunnies.

          No, sorry, can’t do that. No one should be playing Boogie Bunnies. Friends don’t let friends play boogie bunnies.
