I am the Ego. The Ego Terrorist. I am the shadow, the voice in your head, the bringer of topics such as Word Association, the leader of the We Love Tammy Club, I am Ego-Incarnate.
Okay...yeah well, in the real world I'm a 19 year old Philosophy student currently in Preston in the UK, and when I'm not there, I'm home in Cumbria, in the small village of Edenhall. I first stumbled across X-Com.co.uk about 3 or 4 years ago, and then I stumbled across a copy of the Collectors edition of X-Com in the bargin bin in PC World. And thus I took up residence in the forum. All I have to say about XTC - cheers Pete!
Favourite Games -
With most games I often find my self modding and patching a game until it reaches a point at which I love it to bits, and with some games I mod them until the game doesn't work properly. The first 5 are games that I always seem to come back to, the next set of games are my current favourites.
CivIII (Conquests and PTW expansion packs, and the Bigger Better Worlds mod pack and the farm mod.)
Operation Flashpoint. (Addons and Mods galore!)
Master of Orion II
Morrowind (I spent three full days playing it on my laptop.)
Halo (Crap! How the hell did I miss such a good game!)
Rome Total War
Nights Dawn Trilogy by Peter F Hamilton. (The Reality Disfunction, Neutronium Alchemist, The Naked God) - Excellent Series
Saga of the Seven Suns by Kevin J Anderson. (Hidden Empire, Forest of Stars, Horizon Storms) - Not as good as the Nights Dawn Trilogy, but an enjoyable read.
Drenai Saga - by David Gemmel (Search for them at your local bookshop, too many to list, but the first one was the best in my opinion http://www.drenai.com/
Starship Troopers by Robert A Heinlein. - Much better than the movie, but the movie was cool.
The Forever War - a good read, worth picking up.
Erm...Play By EMail Sims set in the Star Trek universe
And X-Com Alliance Sim!
