New Apple Silicon M1 MacBook Pro

Ciri of Cintra – Prime 1 Studio Statue

It took almost exactly three years of waiting to finally receive my Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon Prime 1 Studio statue. Not only has this been the longest wait time that I’ve for a statue, but so far in The Witcher 3 Prime 1 Studio line, this has been the most disappointing one for me thus […]
