Custom amiibo

If I didn't know better, I'd think these custom amiibo were Nintendo authentic


There's some talent in this community
Feb 25

Warhammer Vermintide

There's a new Warhammer game about shooting and slicing rat-men with your friends


Coming this year from the studio behind War of the Roses
Feb 05
It's not a day-making new Space Marine or Dawn of War, but as far as Games Workshop adaptations go, Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide (PC, PS4, Xbox One) seems neat. As a cooperative first-person shooter / melee-combat game ... read
