Yiz had me at the Witcher III comparison.
It's on the ol Amazon watch list - awaiting a price drop.

Avoid AC1 like the plague though, it's prototype trash!

I remember buying into the hype for Assassins Creed I, purchasing the steel box special edition, and being bitterly disappointed by the game play and jerky graphics.
I've only barely dipped my toe in the AC universe since; bought II on XBox 360 but never even played it, then bought III on PS3 but gave up after about an hour due to the shoddy controls.

Mixed reviews for the deluge of subsequent games has kept me away.

Have to say though, the comments on Odyssey below are piquing my interest.

IDW wasting no time releasing this mini, she lands next Wednesday.
Have to admit, I like this series-of-mini-series approach.
Easy to jump on / off, and a chance to try out new creative teams on old Joe.

Shame they don't seem to be as good as putting out decent ongoing series...

Seems to me that they're adapting their approach precisely because the last two ongoing series didn't do too well.

For a long time I thought Warren Ellis was about the only british creator who didn't work for HoT,

Other British creators of note; Kieron Gillen and Paul Jenkins.

2 episodes of new series Spector which, according to Matt Smith in the latest Thrillcast, will be published next Summer along with 2 undrawn scripts.

As in the final two episodes will be published in script form?
Any consideration to allowing another artist to finish it (maybe Colin MacNeil w/ Hector Ezquerra inking)?

Paul Jenkins is an interesting choice. One of the few Brit comic book writers that didn't cut their teeth with The Galaxy's Greatest, I've enjoyed his work previously.
This guy can turn The Inhumans into a compelling read ffs.

Now if only they could've managed to get Mark Buckingham on the interior art....

More importantly what the heck is ‘folk horror’?

My new local boozer.

The Slaughtered Lamb?

About 40% more 'rural'.
But they do a decent Guinness and have a fire going most nights, so just call me Doc Hollywood and be done with it.

I read very few superhero genre comics this year, but this was one of them and pretty freakin great to boot.

Delighted that there's a sequel planned for 2019.

SGM can do no wrong.

Most significent comic of the haul is clearly though Batman The Maxx 1 its just glorious to have the Maxx back and while Sam Keith doesn't seem to nail Bats as I imagine him all of the you realise it doesn't matter as he nails Batman as Sam Keith would imagine him and before you know it your bought in and snuggled back into this fantastic world of crazy.

Really admire Sam Keith's work.
Had to pick this one up.

Christmas Prog line-up looks great.
Will be a treat having the much missed Dom Reardon back in the Prog (assuming he is indeed returning for the final Caballistics, Inc. story).

Yes, I still watch this show, and last night's episode was particularly cringe worthy.

I would kindly ask a generous UK boarder to froward me a collectors item 1st issue of "M.C Go-Go" as soon as they flood the shelves of WH Smith.

Now I've hit my 40's I find I'm starting to curb my nerdy ways.
The monthly comic pull list is a shell of its former glut.
No longer is a TV show or film given the benefit of the doubt simply because of the genre.
The Loot Crate subscription has long been cancelled.
Video game 'day one' purchases are no longer a concern at all.

No doubt finances are a factor here (I will be paying two mortgages until at least early 2019), but definitely a change in attitude too.

And yet. And yet.
There is a certain compulsion that draws me towards random purchases of otherwise useless tat.
It may end up gathering dust on a shelf. It may end up in a drawer, but Grud help me- I have to have it.

Anyone else afflicted by this seemingly intermittent bout of pure madness?

Recent items on my list of curios:

- Playmobil 'Stay Puft Marshmallow Man'. Status: Purchased. Already in a drawer.
- Lego City Pizza Van. Status: Purchased. Built, but already packed away with Lego collection.
- 'Twinkie the Kid' Funko Pop. Status: Ordered from Zavvi.
- Garbage Pail Kids "Oh the Horror-ible" card set. Status: Purchased on Ebay and in the post. NB- Postage was twice the cost of the cards.
- Super Mario Brothers pajamas by Pennys. Status: worn to bed last night.
- Classic Twilight Zone (black and white) action figures. Status: Looking online for a price that will allow me to sleep at night.
