RAW, RAI and rule abuse in Warhammer 40k; lets make a change

by Matt Gearyon 10/07/2020
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 […]

by Matt Gearyon 26/04/2020
Yesterday, 25/04/2020, Geek Pride lost one of it’s Editors, to Cancer. Her name was Hani Fearon and she was only 30. Hani was one of the original group who helped start Geek Pride and despite the tumult inherent in sites like ours, she was always there, always helping, always positive and every time I saw […]

Twilight Imperium 4th Edition – How to play with only 2 players

by Matt Gearyon 06/03/2020
TI4  is a 3+ player game, therefore if you only have two people you are pretty scuppered and your options are: don’t play; use one of the internet’s homebrews, which knocks out phases and adds restrictions ORRRRRR you could do what we did and play the 3rd player between us. Now this sounds strange but […]

Pay to win and a dark future for gaming?

by Matt Gearyon 25/02/2020
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 […]

by joshkingofgeekson 14/08/2019
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 […]

7 people you will play in a 40k tourney and why it isn’t that bad.

by Matt Gearyon 03/06/2019
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 […]

Did Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo Live Up to Harrison Ford’s?

by Andrew Corbanon 25/05/2018
  Geek Pride previously wrote about how some of the new Star Wars movies don’t measure up to the greatness of the original 70s to 80s trilogy. While Rogue One was without a doubt one of the most impressive additions to the franchise, other recent ones like The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi were […]
