Hey there! I know i'm on this forum for some time, but i didn't even think about introducing myself (tbh i created the account just to reply to cooperverdon in the nv2 highscoring thread :I )
My real-life name (anglicised) is Matthew (i prefer Matt though). I'm 14 (born on 25th July, 2000). I come from and live in Poland.
The first time i encountered with n was in ~2008. I played 1.2 version then. After few months of occasional playing, i stopped for a while. In somewhere around 2010 i returned to n - it was the 1.4 version. Again, after several months (maybe it was even a year), i took a break from this game. Now i play 2.0 practically everyday since it came out and 1.4/nreality sparsely. I also sometimes submit my maps from nv2.0 to NUMA where i created the account in about 2nd half of 2014.
In case you wondered why my nick is just like it is, here's a short story of it:
It all started in 2007-ish when i played MineCraft (don't judge me! The game's good, but the community (well, most of it)'s not). I was *inspired* by the "This is Sparta!" quote from "300". The very first version of my nick was just ThisIsSparta, but then i changed it to SpartaX17, SpartaX19 and finally to SpartaX18.
"OK, but what does the X18 mean?" you may ask. Well, it means totally nothing :D It's just a filler.
I play lotsa games apart from n. My favorite types are: platform games, racing games and arcade games. Here's list of the most notable games (series) i play(ed):
- Need For Speed (many parts)
- Rollercoaster Tycoon (all 3 with the additions)
- FlatOut (first 3 parts - the latest one sucks)
- BurnOut (Paradise on PC and 3 and Revenge on PS2)
- Super Mario Bros X (played many versions, but this is the only one i ever downloaded)
- Grand Theft Auto (2, 3, Vice City, San Andreas and 4)
- Toca Race Driver 2 (and Racedriver: GRID)
- Colin McRae Rally (3, 04, 2005, DiRT, DiRT 2, DiRT 3 and DiRT: Showdown)
- Mobil 1 British Rally Championship 2000
- Guitar Hero (3, World Tour, Aerosmith)
- Tony Hawk's (all the PC parts besides the first one)
I often listen to music while playing. My favorite genres are rock and metal, but i also like punk much and i more rarely listen to electro and rap. The only genres i really don't like are dubstep and modern pop.
I can't tell which band is the best in my opinion, but i have lots of songs by Foo Fighters and System Of A Down on my phone. Also the fact that i download single songs, not whole discographies doesn't help me choose my favorite band.
I rarely watch movies, but i still have my favorite ones:
- The Green Mile
- Shawshank Redemption
- Hot Fuzz
- Home Alone (classic, enjoyed only the first two parts though)
- Ice Age (1 and 2; never watched the 3rd one entirely)
- Shrek (mhm...; all the parts)
I also hardly ever watch the TV. The only things i watch are Top Gear and WWE.
I don't read books if i don't have to :D
I have pretty good marks in school. My highest average is from geography - over 5.10/6 (yet everyone thinks i'm the best from math, but in reality it's my third highest average; the second one is from English - clear 5.0). My lowest average is from physics - about 3.90.
An IQ test i found on the internet (probably fake like most of 'em) said my IQ is 144 if i remember correctly :f
Uh-huh... Alright, i think that's it! Thanks for reading (i doubt anyone will read the entire post though) and if you want to know more about me or something's unclear for you - just ask!
To be honest, i would write more if my computer wouldn't surprise me with an outta-nowhere bluescreen and when i rewrote everything (and added a bunch of sentences) on my phone, this forum wouldn't tell me i'm not logged in so i can't submit this post and erase everything...
It's probably the longest post on this forum already anyways, so...
Ugh, i feel like after writing an essay...
