Rob Kazinsky was “fat” but “deliriously happy” when he played computer games for a living.
The ‘Second Chance’ actor – who rose to fame on British soap ‘EastEnders’ before finding success in Hollywood in the Fox series – is set to star in the movie adaptation of the popular game ‘World of Warcraft’ but revealed he used to get paid to play the game and had never been happier.
He said: “It was the happiest (job), I’ll tell you that. All I did was sit down in my underwear, order food in and play computer games for 18 hours and get fat and I was deliriously happy while doing it.”
Nowadays the 32-year-old heartthrob is too busy with acting to keep his old job up and has a string of movie credits to his name – including movies ‘Pacific Rim’ and ‘Hot Pursuit’ alongside Hollywood starlets SofÃa Vergara and Reece Witherspoon.
However, he confessed that old habits die hard and still finds time to fit in a few hours of game-play here and there.
Rob told People: “I still play… I played it professionally for a long time. It was my job 18 hours a day to play that game at one point.”
FIFA 16 was released four months ago but many are already talking about the next edition. One of the biggest news seems to be the cover, which has featured Messi for three years now. The next edition could be different as many sites have reported that he won’t be signing a new deal with the company behind the popular sports title.
The Barcelona star recently won the Ballon D’or and has appeared in many FIFA and FIFA Street covers. The deal between the company and Messi is said to be expiring this year. The gaming giant will have to look for someone else and the search could be difficult as Ronaldo and Neymar already have a contract with Pro Evolution Soccer.
FIFA 17 won’t be out for another eight months, but talks about the next edition always start early. This year’s game is great and features many improvements. The game now moves slower and lets defenders catch up to the fastest players. We also have women’s national teams and a tournament. Career Mode features more of the same but still brings a number of small improvements. FIFA 16 is solid but next year’s title could be better.
Kotaku previous spotted a leaked screenshot which appears to be for World of Warcraft: Legion. The leaked photo shows a new feature, a Wardrobe tab. The upcoming ‘World of Warcraft: Legion’ will also increase the level of the game to level 110.
We know that the upcoming World of Warcraft: Legion’ will have a feature that will allow players to change the aesthetic of their gears, however until now we still don’t have any idea how it would look like.
However Kotaku was able to spot a video of the UI of the ‘World of Warcraft: Legion’s wardrobe. The video has since been deleted, but Kotaku was able to get a screenshot of it.
What’s so significant from this photo; is that previously you keep your cosmetic gear in Void Storage, or in your bag, but the upcoming ‘World of Warcraft: Legion’ will have a wardrobe tab-which is like the Toy Box and Heirloom items. It’s a better user experience, where gamers will easily keep track of their looted items during a journey-whether it’s cosmetic or anything smaller.
It’s still a long way until ‘World of Warcraft: Legion’s release so expect more stuff for the upcoming expansion.
‘World of Warcraft: Legion’ is set to be released on Q2 or Q3 of 2016, for now players are enjoying its Alpha version.World of Warcraft US
