Sometimes you just have one of those moments, an interaction that reminds you where you are, who you are dealing with, and one of those moments happened to me the other day.
I was having a discussion with some members in the forums, when Outlaw213 just bursts in with a comment out of left field. We are discussing how hard it is to get the crappy in the box PS and Xbox headsets after you break your one and I commented on how I miss the awesome cheapo PS4 headset that came with the box. Then for no reason at all except it’s how he rolls, Outlaw213 just goes ahead and offers to send me his one he never used.
The headset in question
On top of that, after he sent it, he didn’t even want me to cover the postage costs. A totally selfless act, not just a selfless act but it actually cost him a few bucks to do me the solid. I’ve given away a thing or two over the years here but I’ve always charged postage where applicable, so Outlaw213's instinct immediately trumps any effort I have made.
Now someone reading this may be thinking who is this Outlaw213 fellow? With a measly 589 posts in the forums you may recognize the name, the reason for that is because when he posts or creates a thread, he makes it count. See for example the threads he has made about games around E3 time, going and making images to head them, detailed info, and even making mock game covers when game covers don’t exist yet. The extra effort he puts in for no reason other than its awesome and for the benefit of us NZG members is just another thing that reminds us of why members like Outlaw213 is important to keeping NZG the happy place it really can be.
Some of the quality in Outlaw213's threads
Outlaw, I’d like to address you directly for a moment. This little action really made my week mate, thanks heaps for the headset. I love the NZG community (probably shown by how much time I spend here) and your actions, attitude and contributions really epitomizes every best feature about this community
Outlaw213 for president 2016.
