I hate to be the one to tell you this Slash but Walking Dead has had it's ups and downs. It's just starting to get good again after a really serious drop in quality. I almost stopped watching.

The first few seasons are great though. My favorite earlier character is Shane (Jon Bernthal).

I'm going to wait on this one. I just can't see this film being even close to the top tier Marvel movies.

We've seen her trying to act tough in the trailers so far and... um....


...yeah, in the comics (up until recently for reasons having to do with writing skill), she has been a well-respected cheerful but military tough kind of character (keeping in mind her characterization has been ALL OVER THE PLACE for decades. But more consistent for the past decade.)

According to a wide swath of internet responses, Larson either fails at acting tough and awesome due to some kind of inability, or she wildly succeeds at acting tough and awesome because she's a woman.  ::) (This, incidentally, is also Larson's own opinion of her performance.)

The marketing for this film has been an amazing car crash into a dumpster fire. It'll still make a billion dollars, because duh.

Anyway, that partly explains this spoof trailer some more: they went with "her idea of acting tough is to be a sociopathic self-centered teen."

I'm not gonna lie, I'm gonna have to restrain yelling out "PUNCH THE CAT, FURY, IN HIS LITTLE CAT FACE!" when I get to that scene in the theater. If other people do, I'll completely lose the next few minutes of plot from trying to survive laughing.

Late to this thread, but I'm currently reading Sapkowski's The Last Wish, the first book in the series upon which the Witcher video games are based.

Yeah, I can't be mad at Paradox considering the time I've invested.
 
The only thing that does cheese me off a bit is that every time I sit down to really invest some hours, they announce something game changing like Man the Guns and I don't want to play without the new features. 

I do agree with Jomni in that the way to go with Paradox titles now is to wait a long time after release and get them after the first few expansions on a sale.

We are watching The Umbrella Academy on Netflix.  Predictable, but good.

More than 20k$ and 200 backers! Thanks all for this great start.

Sorry for the long delay to do this update but we were on the road to Cannes, South of France, for the biggest game fair in France. If you attend it, you can meet us, and play Napoléon 1806 and 1807, on the "Carré d'Histoire". If you are not there, we will take pictures and videos to show you the lucky gamers battling on the Prussian and Polish battlefields.

Napoléon started its long march to Königsberg. He already defeated two of our Stretch Goal but there is still lots of them to overcome. So do not hesitate to spread the word around and recruit for the Great Army.

But let's take a look at the two stretch goals you tackled already.

The 4 pages booklet will allow you to jump into the battle right away. It will introduce simplified rules focusing on the main mechanisms of the system. Perfect to learn the game easily and to play with younger gamers.

The extra scenario will bring scenario count to 8. It is a "battle" scenario focusing on the Friedland battle. The two sides are face to face and the combat will erupt quickly all around the battlefield. There will be only one victor!
