It is common knowledge that actor Henry Cavill is a proud Geek and one who seems to be happy to fly the flag for his passion and therefore us, in his social feed and even in interviews. Seeing an Instagram post of him reading a Black Library book, building a gaming rig, painting a Custodie or even talking about a Black Stone Fortress and World of Warcraft in interviews, warmed so many geeks' hearts and made us feel; you know what? Maybe we are living in a time where it's become acceptable to do this sort of thin...
First up, if you have read the title of this, are a D&D player and have no idea what a False Hydra is… then great! Stop now, don’t google it and go and ask your DM to run one. If he/ she doesn’t know, then have them look it up; it’s a lot of fun, […]
I have been playing 40k since the days of the original Rogue Trader book in all it’s strange and weird glory. I took a small break in between 3rd and 5th editions, but within my time in the game, I never played competitively until 8th edition. Why? Well It seemed a bit more streamlined, and […]
We’re back! just over a year and a half and we’re back in the land of Podcasts. Matt, Josh, Jon Jo, Mark, Dan and Pete talk isolation, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot and try not to get into an argument about Star Wars.. Again.
Yesterday, 25/04/2020, Geek Pride lost one of it’s Editors, to Cancer. Her name was Hani Fearon and she was only 30.

Now this sounds strange but […]
In the news recently there was a piece about Sony patenting a new piece of technology. This is nothing new for Tech companies in general but where this patent seems to differ somewhat and could potentially be revolutionary to gaming is its algorithms that learn when you are struggling to defeat a part of the game or Boss and then offer you the option to buy a piece of armour, or a weapon , for a reasonable price, to progress past the point you are having issue with.
With the LVO nearly upon us and the tournament calendar beginning again I thought i’d explain my down falls as a tournament player and how I think, you could do better. I’ve been playing tournaments in 40k for about 4 years now and despite a 2nd in a one dayer, a 6th and a lucky […]
To say my first ever San Diego Comic Con was an experience coupled with a sharp learning curve is an understatement. Having seen so many people before me do the Con without a hitch i thought to myself “yeah i can do this!”. I Got my Press Pass, booked my flight and with a bag […]
Playing 40k tourneys is a daunting undertaking, one marred by rumours of WAACS, Neckbeards and people who get no joy out of the game other than winning. In the end you play a game for the fun, for the challenge and obviously the win is a nice bonus but you don’t want to have a […]
