    Kill Team

    I love me some Kill Team. I teach kids at school to play it for our School Alliance club and I've been lucky to have played a few games with one of the GW Design Studio. Awesome fun. I can't wait for WarCry because my main interest is AoS, but KT has dominated my hobby time. I've got a few teams...

    Metroid Pikmin Smash Anything else would be nice on top of this, 3rd party in particular. DLC can be good (original MK8 DLC was brill) but the Zelda DLC I thought was poor and just couldn't get into it.

    Tabletop Warhammer?

    I think it's quite natural to have so many models on the go. As a hobby, it's so encompassing - collecting, modelling, painting, gaming. I think over the years I've come to discover I really enjoy making the models up and converting etc and also collecting the models to make up army lists more...

    Tabletop Warhammer?

    I'm looking forward to AoS2 now. Spent a lot of time and money lately: Bought a load of Dark Aelves from a nice chap on TGA forums. That bolstered my Order Serpentis army to 2 dragons, 2 hydras, 25 drakespawn, 1 chariot, 5 assassins, 2 sorceresses... Basically comfortably 2000 points with some...

    *** Nintendo Switch ***

    I had this. Really annoying. However, when it prompts, I think there are some more options to explore. Tick those extra options and it never asks again. Much better. Really enjoying this FIFA, if just for the World Cup stuff. I fell properly out of love with FIFA when back in 2013 it kept...

    I'd have been the same I think. NES for Christmas 90, sure we got a SNES around launch. Can't have been older than 9.

    *** Nintendo Switch ***

    I loved Mega Man as a kid, particularly Mega Man X. We had the first one on the NES. Got to the last world one long Sunday and dad agreed to let the NES be left on all night. When we came to it at breakfast time, it had reset. Absolutely gutted and felt like throwing the NES out of the window...

    Tabletop Warhammer?

    I've also had reasonable success with painting the eye area white, then Nuln Oil to sink into the recesses, then white then use a thinned black paint for the centres (usually a line).

    Tabletop Warhammer?

    Eyes are difficult, but... Can work quite well. I often paint the eyes black, then paint (two coats) smaller whites within the black. Do a line, rather than a dot, sometimes easier.

    Tabletop Warhammer?

    I use a takeaway tub. Cut some cellulose sponge cloth things (thinner than a sponge, but spongey still) and use baking paper cut to size. Can get three sheets of baking paper from one length if you cut it right too.

    Tabletop Warhammer?

    One on the right is definitely current range. I bet Lahmian Medium and a bit of water would revive it. The one on the left - I've had mixed success with those. They weren't the worst offenders, there was a screw top range before that which was awful. I think it depends on the paint. I've got...

    Tabletop Warhammer?

    I've heard Lahmian Medium can do the job. I've sometimes dropped a bit of fresh cold water in an given a stir, revived some pots. However, the quality of the new paint system has had me replacing a load of my old paints. Guess it depends on how old your paints are. I've still got a working...

    Street Fighter (SFIV, SSFIV, HDR)

    I'd have thought Guile was the best version of him? He's got fantastic buttons and is ridiculously hard to approach. Definitely one of the top 5 strongest characters. I guess if he feels different, he feels different though. I loved Blanka in SF2, but I'm rubbish with charge moves. I'll give...

    *** Nintendo Switch ***

    I flit between Skyrim and ARMS. I've neglected Splatoon 2 and I don't know why. I think it's because I tried to get into motion controls, which really for me needs to be TV play and I don't play Switch much on the telly. I should go back for the Splatfest. Played ARMS a lot because of the new...

    Street Fighter (SFIV, SSFIV, HDR)

    Added you Rob last night. Man, I'm struggling with Laura now. Still at Super Gold, not tried ranked for ages. I like to have a good run at games online and just not had it. The adjustments made to her make her feel weird now. Miss her st.mk, though I appreciate it was a god button. I'd also...

    Street Fighter (SFIV, SSFIV, HDR)

    Yeah if you're gonna play it or aren't fussed to much about the cost I would. I use FM for colours, stages etc instead.

    Street Fighter (SFIV, SSFIV, HDR)

    That's true and what I was alluding to. I can't stand stick, but admire those who can use it! It's more of grind than it was before, that's a fact. I buy the season passes, because I play the game a lot. If you're just getting back into it, I'd leave it and just use FM for the characters that...

    *** Nintendo Switch ***

    Yeah I think it gives that impression, but the meta around the ARMS and the combination of characters is quite deep. EVO Japan finals were immense. Look up Nev Bamshew's ARMS university on YT. It's got some standard FGS stuff like whiffs, pokes etc but is a good starting point. At a higher...

    *** Nintendo Switch ***

    My dog chewed my copy of ARMS. My son forgot to put it in the case when he played on Marvel. It apparently fell off the top of the case, and the dog thought it was a delightful chew toy. One bite, it was toast. RIP ARMS (it joins Pokemon Y). Ordered a new copy last night using the Amazon £10...

    Street Fighter (SFIV, SSFIV, HDR)

    To be fair, unless you particularly enjoy using a stick, I don't think there's much advantage to using one in SFV. Ed, for example, benefits from piano actions and I still believe charge characters play better on stick, but pad is fine for SFV. It's all personal preference I guess. I hated the...
