  1. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    Can't believe just how low the price is for the GOTY edition of the game - CDKeys have it for £24. Obviously this is a moot point for all of us and there's certainly no-one who'd dare show their face in this thread without having bought it already, but it really is a ginormous bargain. If you haven't done so already, check out the new trailer - it shows a result on the witches I don't think I'll ever get, but it was fun to see!

    I will say though that the one time I got a finalist pin at Golden Demon (back in 2008) I was using a brush with a synthetic and sable mix and was cheap as chips...not that I've entered anything since then, but no-one should ever get too snobby about these things. I know plenty of GD winners who buy cheap as chips brushes, use them for one or two minis and then chuck them out and buy some more. End of the day - whatever works for you is the best way
  3. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    Quality-wise, I far prefer the R&Cs to any other brushes out there. I've used examples of pretty much all the main players in the market and certainly for the way I paint, no-one comes close. The fact that they're also cheaper than most of them is a nice bonus, but I'd be perfectly happy paying Series 7 money for them if I had to.
  4. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    Patch 1.30 up tomorrow
  5. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    Well done TSH - a good recap for the poor souls who've yet to read the books and become utterly addicted to the world
  6. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    And also a fellow unicorn fan
  7. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    Blood looks good to me . Great stuff all 'round!
  8. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    Lies! All lies! Ciri and no amount of rational explaining will dissuade me from it! Honestly, after three play throughs (and I'm sure I'll be doing another soon), I cannot move away from the choices I've made each time... I'm so sad
  9. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    Yen would crush her in a straight out sorceress fight
  10. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    No no no. With Yen,it's very clear how she operates - she's pretty much a force of nature and will do whatever the hell she wants. Triss is much, much more manipulative - playing the sweet innocent, whilst literally everything she will do is for her own gain. She's a nasty piece of work
  11. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    I dunno, it may be because of the investment I have in the games before and the books...I found the way the pacing worked was pretty much perfect really. However, I knew from the off that Triss wouldn't get a look in. I've never liked her...she's a far worse person than Yen could ever be as far as I'm concerned.
  12. Witcher 3 - The Wild Hunt

    Yen is an absolute bitch, but the books go a long way to explain why she's the way she is. Wouldn't have Geralt with anyone else!
  13. Steam

    This looks bloody amazing! Never heard of it before - anyone on early access with any thoughts?
  14. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

    Yeah, absolutely. It just feels like Deus Ex needs someone to invest more money into the franchise to make it fly really. None of Deus Ex's sequels have felt even remotely similar in proper 'epic'-ness (obviously ignoring the age and the rather dated looks of the original game ). Everything felt incredibly claustrophobic in HR, and it seems to be fairly similar in the new one?
  15. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

    From all the newer vids I've seen it just looks really fucking rough around the edges. I know it's been done without a AAA budget, but there seems to be a huge disjoint between some really lovely location work and decidedly dodgy characters...some of the lip synching is appalling.
