I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

I cut out the middleman and assume that they're all jerks and/or shills.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

That makes sense, thank you.

@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 09:51 AM)

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

@  Dracula : (26 September 2016 - 09:34 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 09:32 AM)

Hillary versus Trump tonight. Oh boy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 06:53 AM)

I think I'm just too used to metal to not understand the lyrics.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

:(

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 September 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Sorry bebbeh, I'm taken.

Expect a genericizing soon. The character is even named Ronald McDonald. No, I didn't /petition, but you know it's just a matter of time before someone does.

Regrading villain badges awarded for heroes in the arena. No more. They fixed that little feature a few patches back.

Not in the Arena. In the villain VDay event mission. I got the 4 badges from it. Weed Whacker, Coldblooded, Hellfrost Gladiator and the Hordeling Gladiator.

I just got an e-mail about this V-Day promotion, and its says my account has been reactivated. Interesting.

Guess I'm gonna upload the latest patch and head into Paragon city for the first time since early November.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

I ran the mission last night on the Freedom server. I got a team of six together, and just went after the badges. Had a couple lvl 50 guys, so we tore through my missions (my character there is only lvl 11). icon-hotrod.gif

I have no pics of it, so I'll post this pic I put together over the last few days. It's every character I've created in the game and across all servers.

Heh heh heh

I used my "Buddy" code for CoV that came with my Valentine's Day email on my secondary CoH account, just to see if it would give it access to CoV.

Well, my secondary account accepted it, and got upgraded to a joint Coh/CoV account.

My 1st Alt will be The *Greedy* Swiss Banker... Swiss Banker's Praetorian, who will act as a transfer between my villains icon-fire.gif

And I'll be able to re-roll one of its heroes in a villain, just as I intended him to be from day 1 when I came up with the concept...

Holy Crap... I just got some new ram on my work computer.. this game ran like total garbage on this machine for the longest time, and it only has a MX440 video card..

With a gig of ram instead of 512K the difference is like night and day. No chopping.. zones load quickly... I even turned the settings as high as they would go and it still runs okay (loss of some framerate is all).

Seriously, if you can upgrade to at least a gig to play this game do so. It will make a huuuuge difference.

You know, I did exactly that just a few days ago.. and you're absolutely right.

It's really incredible.

2 chips of 512 megs RAM cost me 90$ each, or 180 Canadian. I should get the last one tomorow (availability problems) and by tomorow night my wonky CPU should be a thing of the past, what with me running at a gig too icon-fire.gif

It's been 15 Levels and over a month (I first encountered Ronald in Breakout).

Methinks he's staying the way he is till a GM sniffs him out.


But now, he has a nemesis (God Help me, I couldn't stop myself...)

Orders a Minion to go to a location. That way I can send em out ahead as meatshields as well as clear doors and other obstructions.

Suggestion:

For your Mastermind, I strongly suggest you check out Khaiba's Mastermind Keypad Binds. Pure gold.

I use it with both Nekrosys and Jon Von Shrapnel (though I admit I tweaked with Nekrosys' binds, to add emotes and the like). It really speeds up gameplay for Masterminds.

Oh, yes for the Weed Whacker, etc. you can do the villain missions. I got all of those last night on my level 50 (Skysaurus was there for 2 of them). But then he did a "Bad Sky!" moment and attacked the named boss. Bad Sky! Bad Sky!

So many cool titles to bear, but only one to show at a time. I really do like "Weed Whacker" as a title. icon-hotrod.gif

Oh, definitely. I can't play my Masterminds without using these binds. I'm doing the same as you, adding text and stuff to make it mine. Question I have, maybe you can answer it: I know you can direct text to a specific chat window (local, broadcast, etc), but can you direct text to a specific private chat room? I'm wanting to add some lines to my MM binds that post a message to a private chat room when I switch from controlling one pet to another. Like, if I've got my Battle Droids, Jazz and Prowl, and I hit NUMPAD-0, the message "Now controlling Battle Droids" would appear in the private chat window, but if I hit / to control just Jazz, the message "Now controlling Jazz" would appear. Anyone know if I can do that?

Hey, in my defense, he switched spots when we reset the mish... not to mention that he looked just like all the other 2 billion Madness Mages running around willy-nilly.
