Having started gaming in 1849ish, are you sure you're older than Keith?

Roughly the same speed as running more than league on my old laptop then!

Welcome to the fold Brit abroad.
100 years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account, nor what my clothes looked like; but the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.

Thats quite an eclectic taste in music you have there Scratch: Opera to Wu Tang! I have several of the early Wu Tang spin offs and got 'in' to RZA's production style a while back. Enjoyed the initial Method Man album and Iron Man by Ghost.

Love this quote- have four, not good, in fact very bad, but as you say, excellent examples of cats Smile

And yeh, STALKER is great- haven't played 2, heard it was something of a let down, but the first one, loved it!

EU too, but never could get into EUIII for some reason- Vicky is my Paradox fave, haven't played Vicky 2, have you?

I've also been getting into 70s Afrobeat and Psychedelia from West Africa as well. Some great stuff from Benin. RZA is definitely the producer of that area for me, Ironman is probably my favorite Wu Tang-related album along with Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and Liquid Swords.

Yeah, I haven't played either of the sequels (although I have them on Steam), a good friend whose taste I trust in the matter says that the second one isn't that good and the third one is pretty good; neither of them live up to the intense atmosphere and feel of the first though.

Quote:EU too, but never could get into EUIII for some reason- Vicky is my Paradox fave, haven't played Vicky 2, have you?

Only a tiny bit, I've just started a game as Mexico where I'm trying to deal with Texas and the U.S., I couldn't resist waiting for the year-later major modification that most people seem to feel is necessary with most Paradox titles.

Welcome aboard Todd. We could do with an animal trainer around these parts when some of the natives become restless! Not sure how you get smacked in the face with a shoe in cricket, a ball perhaps but not a shoe.

Real Name: Ilian
Age: 18
Location: Sofia,Bulgaria
Nationality: Bulgarian
Occupation: Student

Geek Factor: Only FM since 2008
Non-geek hobbies: Fitness,swimming and running.
Three Games (not FM): Call of duty, Unreal Tournament, Diablo.

LLM?: Found about this site a long time ago and followed most of the LLM careers, but I wasn't a Llama my self, so I decided not to register.

Personal stuff I don't mind sharing: Don't really know what to say, as I'm still very young. I don't have no kids, at least I'm not aware of any. Well maybe the greatest love my life so far is with Manchester United ( not because of the Bulgarian , so called "forward" out there, he is a lazy chimp , but yet again he doesn't get the idea of being a player at Man United).
20-01-2011, 10:58 AM
Welcome aboard Ilian, it will make a nice change having a ManUre fan around here that comes from Manchester... oh hold that thought you're from Sofia. Ah well never mind, it would still be nice to have a ManUre fan from Manchester!
