Given recent occurrences in my life, I'll be able to have quite a bit more free time in the coming weeks, as well as a bit better cash flow.
With that in mind, along with attempting to get back into writing on eSports related topics (or contributing for an organization again, we'll see), I'm also looking to find some PC games to play, and some books to read. I am looking towards TL's diverse community to gather input and suggestions.
Outside of SC2, the only games I still have installed are: Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Max Payne, Amnesia, and Sim City 4. I haven't completely kept up on playing/trying "newer" games, and don't really enjoy games that require excessive time commitments. I have always preferred FPS, but have become picky after being competitive with Counter-Strike all those years ago.
The bonus of SC2, and the other games I have installed is that they can be played sporadically quite easily. And another note, I'm not too keen on the whole MOBA scene and will steer clear of those games.
As for books, I do enjoy non-fiction depending on the subject, especially in the physics vein. Hyperspace (and other Michio Kaku books), The Elegant Universe, etc... I'm also open to philosophical books/texts.
And with fiction, I'm a fan of Stephen King, as well as Michael Crichton, and some of John Sandford's novels among a lot of others. I wouldn't say they have to be of a certain genre (given how varied someone like King is), but anything along the lines of mystery/thriller that has a reasonable pace is probably down my alley.
Anyways, I could cram lots more information into this but I don't want to bore people. If anyone has questions, feel free to ask and I appreciate any and all future suggestions!!
