  1. Someone in the EU forum mentioned something like 'Dirk Duvale or something like that' which rings a bell. The name 'Duvale' is certainly familiar. EDIT: I think I found him! https://www.youtube.com/user/mankindontario/videos Yes! It is him! Marvel at the tactical genius that is the 'Deep Water Flank'
  2. Ok, long shot here, Does anyone remember years ago, a guy who used to do WOT videos on YouTube, but he was absolutely, spectacularly *terrible*? From about 2012/2013. It was mentioned on the forums here a fair bit, due to just how bad he was. He was old-ish, maybe in his 50s, and American. He'd explain his 'tactics' as he played and it was very clear he didn't have the slightest clue about tactics, predicting others' behaviour or the game mechanics, I think he had around a 43% w/r. The video I remember specifically, was him spending the entire game driving a KV-1, very slowly through
  3. Steam key for XCOM: UFO Defence 2XINC-5FL7Y-K2NVX
  4. Love your mini above (Librarian?), the detail on the book is fantastic.

  6. Maybe I'm just lazy, but it constantly amazes me how much effort people put into these online drama-filled 'campaigns'.
  7. Given that marks are handed out based on average weekly damage for that tank, it would imply that someone is doing well in it.
  8. My first foray into vehicles (I'm a tyranid player so I only ever paint monsters) The front plate is the only area that's 'done' so far but I think I'm getting the hang of weathering. I attacked it with a spanner to get all the dents
  9. I got one in the end. I'm really impressed with it - it works flawlessly. I'm now trying to get some wireless Dualshock 3 pads from Ebay.
  10. Steam Link box is only £15, I'm very, very tempted to get one. It lets you stream games running on your PC to your TV, and it'll pass control inputs back to the game, and it has native support for most USB controllers from the major consoles.
  11. In vaguely chronological order. It's a big list as I don't really have single games which changed me in one go, more a kind of long progression 'RPG Maze game involving giant ants which I can't remember the title and isn't 3D Monster Maze' - Atari 2600 The first video game I ever played, I was about 4. My cousin who's about 7 years older than me brought it round one Christmas. We burned the scoreboard and screen border into my Granny's expensive projection TV. Trap Door - Spectrum Ghostbusters - Spectrum The first games I properly played through and made
  12. The artwork works because of her proportions - to get that into a 28mm mini they've had to make her legs twice as thick and it just looks really awkward. Just using a bit of artistic licence to have her leg not quite as high would have made it look better.
  13. I saw a great thing at an event a few years ago. They had a projector as the screen and about 40 gamepads plugged into a bunch of piggybacked USB hubs and some specially written games for up to 64 players. They were really simple affairs like little side-scrolling dogfight games, or a game with little pirate ships with players randomly assigned to either gunner or driver (where half the fun was working out who you'd been partnered with). You could just pick up a pad and join in.
