    @sweini1: I agree.

  • kingkilla3 posted a message in the forum topic What are you reading?. on the Off-Topic Discussion board

    I'm reading "Europe: A History" by Norman Davies, a ridiculously heavy book about European history, of course. Currently no fiction for me, but I've got a few ideas for what's next. Last I read was "...

    Nile - Lashed to the Slave StickMy favourite song to go back to on this album (Annihilation of the Wicked).

  • kingkilla3 posted a message in the forum topic Whats your favourite sports OT ?. on the Off-Topic Discussion board

    Figure skating's my favourite but it's the only one I watch, not counting the dubious 'sport' (it's more an art really) of professional wrestling. My interest in wrestling is waning anyway, even if I ...

    Julia Holter - I Would Rather SeeThis album ("Aviary") is growing on me. It's quite strange on first listen.

    For me it's mostly just the Nintendo 64 and its games. It was my first console and I've still got it, unlike a few others I've had. Other than that it would be PS1 copies of three Final Fantasy games ...

  • kingkilla3 posted a message in the forum topic Favourite Concept Album. on the Off-Topic Discussion board

    My favourite concept albums are "Tumbleweed Connection" by Elton John, with its theme of Americana (each song has an isolated story though), and "Blood Mountain" by Mastodon, essentially about climbin...

  • kingkilla3 posted a message in the forum topic What's the one game that you keep going back to when you have nothing else to play?. on the Games Discussion board

    When I was younger it was games like GoldenEye 007 and Super Mario 64, but things have changed to the point where this is rarely a problem. I did fill time with Civilization VI at the beginning of th...

  • kingkilla3 posted a message in the forum topic Do you read books?. on the Off-Topic Discussion board

    I typically read fantasy, but I like to intersperse it with non-fiction, romance, horror, historical fiction, and whatever else I decide to read on a whim.

    @france38: I know almost nothing about rugby. I did once have a little interest in soccer and American football, though. The 1% being French speakers in New Zealand, specifically. It's still one of th...

    @korvus: As far as I'm aware Dutch and Afrikaans are distinct enough from each other to be considered different languages instead of dialects of one. I couldn't specify what those differences are thou...

  • kingkilla3 posted a message in the forum topic Your Favorite MMO Game?. on the Games Discussion board

    Considering that all I've played are RuneScape in 2003-2004 and Guild Wars 2, I'd have to say Guild Wars 2 is my favourite. I had some good times playing that back in 2013. I find the size of online ...

  • kingkilla3 posted a message in the forum topic what game are you playing right now?. on the Games Discussion board

    I've been playing Civilization VI a lot with the new expansion. Eventually I'll play something with a story again, but I'm reluctant to choose when.
