He posted the situation in Ask the mods and I always suspect it's Tgob for the most parts.

FYI, they're all AzatiS! He ban dodged and created Tgob as his backup account.

Very nice, where you do get them?

It's called Displate. They're printed on metal sheets and in various sizes (not too cheap,) but they're shipped from Poland with DHL, and DHL likes to add costs and hold it waiting until paid.

As for the designs, it's a multitude of artists who can use the site and sell their own designs. You can get everything from city maps, to all kinds of wacky designs.

@lundy86_4: Usually what I do, is find an image I really like, go onto google and get as high a res version as possible, get a print place to do it for £10-£18 quid depending on size, and buy a separate cheap frame. Nobody will know any the wiser and some of the originals can cost upwards of £100 - £200

e.g.

£25
£25

Yeah, that's dope. Easy and cheap. These go with the whole "printed on metal" thing, which looks great, and just sticks to the wall with a magnet.

I mean, if we are being 100% honest here, they basically are put up for people to fap at.

And then 10 minutes later they will write articles about sexism in games with no sense of irony.

Pretty dumb world we live in, for sure.

You think Game Journalist care, but they don't, unless it gives them reasons to bash their core audience. They have no clue why they're losing subscribers, and they continue the same shit they have always been doing since gamer-gate. Now you have Waypoint absorbed to VICE, Variety shutting down their gaming page, Polygon's parent site Vox Media is losing value and many more. Digital Gaming Media is dying and so far it will be a never ending cycle until reality hits them hard.

I feel bad for Damian Lillard, worst game he's played due to being double teamed. At least Meyers Leonard stepped up, but it just wasn't enough for them to hold the lead in the 4th. The Warriors are looking to sweep the series now.

Yep, I agree. I always known that Russel Westbrook was great, but he is most definitely a bitch as he always thinks it's all about himself. It's no wonder the reason why Kevin Durant left.

I am still amazed at how lucky the San Jose Sharks have been in the playoffs this year. They staved off elimination multiple times and got a few good or missed calls in their favour throughout the playoffs this year

That's because the Blackhawks are becoming irrelevant, if they were to made the Playoffs, the Sharks would always struggle to go against the Blackhawks

I'm still disappointed MCC PC version is delay, but then again, MS did the right thing this time around and make sure the game is working cause we don't want a repeat from MCC Xbox One when it release a broken mess.

Why do people still want to use Epic's storefront?

Borderland's 3 pulled from store over sale...

Epic's anti-fraud rules are shite and blocking people for too many purchases... As you can't buy in bulk, due to no cart option.

Bloodlines 2 pulled temporarily, due to Epic's sale...

Their track-record for throwing money at a problem, doesn't seem to be a universal fix.

It's weird to me how Epic Fail store is so inflexible that they had to outright remove the games from the store itself in their entirety as opposed to just putting them in a different category of not being applicable for the discounts. It is astounding that the store doesn't even have a shopping cart. Even the shadiest third world country scam website that has a store, has a shopping cart lol.

I really wanted to play BL3, but after seeing what Epic & Gearbox is doing, I'm just gonna wait for GOTY Edition coming to Steam. Even more shock to find BL3 for only $20 pre-order until it was pulled from the store.

The whole debacle is genuinely mind-boggling, but people are far too hung up on the 12%. The store-front is utter shite, and seems to be largely unsustainable at this point... Epic needs to get their house in order.

Been saying for a while not Paradox are a pretty scummy company.

Jacked the prices of there games exactly before the Steam Summer sale to nullify much of the discount, then played dumb afterwards.

Use all the same practices as EA/WB/UB and go a step further by selling day 1 dlc, for dlc. In some cases selling assets like music and art separate.

They sort of get a free pass from gamers because they make pc centric titles the other don't.

Didn't know that. That's super scummy. Unfortunately, jacking prices before sales isn't singular to one market... It's a dirty practice.
