You know him as the new-bee event host with the most and a member of the QP MiniBoss crew, meet Arguas!
You can catch Arguas co-casting with Jats, tm0z, ThirsT, ssbm_snek, and Andreaktor – but know if you want in the co-casting mix, the QP MiniBosses are always up for guests. Looking forward to becoming an official Indy Gaming League Caster, Arguas, has been picking up matches since the Fall Circuit of 2020 – let’s give him a big welcome to the KQB Casting Community!
Here’s what else Arguas shared with us:
KQB: What games do you cast?
Arguas: Any and all Killer Queen Black games that need to be cast. I devote a lot of energy to the KQB community to help it grow and prosper, especially at this infancy stage of the game.
KQB: What inspired you to get into casting?
Arguas: In the early stages of the game, I started to encourage Jats to cast when several other people demonstrated they could do it. Coombzy in particular was very supportive in giving him tips to do it. When that got started and tm0z started to find success casting with Jats, I expressed that I thought I could do it pretty well. The team agreed and put me on a cast, and I added something to the casting crew they never really had, which was solid play-by-play and good inter-game analysis.
The more I saw of the community, the more insights that I thought I could bring to the table. Now, I occasionally get people telling me that I’m the voice of the KQB community, which just shows me that I have grown enough to have some prominence. I love this community and all of the people in it!
KQB: What games do you play?
Arguas: I am open to all gaming except shooters and sports emulation games, but I have a particular love for strategy and card games. I’ve liked team games before KQB but I was pretty bad at them. KQB scratches the team game itch while being something I can perform decently well at with the time I can invest. Recently, I have gotten really into Hades with my wife.
KQB: What’s something about your casting style that makes your streams unique?
Arguas: Play-by-play playfulness and the “Make Arguas Sing” incentive has recently taken off to cement my particular casting uniqueness.
KQB: What’s a favorite casting memory of yours?
Arguas: I have many positive ones, but I think doing Extra Life and raising actual money and donations to help out the KQB community, and hitting two targets has been extremely validating. It made me feel like a bit of a standout in the community and very happy that I am part of something greater.
KQB: When you aren’t gaming or casting you’re?
Arguas: Working hard at everything else. I’m a husband devoted to my wife’s growth as a multitalented person, and a team lead on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, working at WB Games San Francisco. I live a pretty exhausting life, to be honest.
KQB: What animal is your kindred spirit?
Arguas: If you asked me about 5 years ago, I would have answered “Angel” for my aspirations of perfection that I could never achieve. I don’t really like animals or the term “kindred spirit” when referencing them either. If you go with “what animal am I most like”, I would say “Dog” for my love of personal companionship and wanting to be a good boy.
KQB: Is there anything else we should know?
Arguas: Some fun facts about me:
- In high school, I was an OK Jazz musician, playing the trumpet, and a track athlete. A pole vaulter (what I actually liked) and a distance runner (a family thing I got from my dad). However, I stopped doing any choir stuff in middle school, because I was louder and flatter than I could perceive myself being. And yet people want me to sing? It boggles my mind; it is truly terrible, and yet, here we are.
- I am an advocate for this community and try to be a super spreader for Killer Queen Black because I am worried about seeing the game go away as the money dries up. I have seen this happen in my time at Zynga, and a bit at WB, time and time again, and this game deserves much better than being sunset.
- I love psychology and using games as a way to make the world a better place, and I’ve devoted part of my life to that concept. As a race, we can do better at empathizing with each other when we have better ways to share experiences.
- Working on a deck builder prototype in the scant bit of free time I have.
Thank you, Arguas, for your support and love of Killer Queen Black!
