I'm still exploring all the possible mods for the PC version of Fallout New Vegas.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 11:03 PM)

So what, my species is perfectly happy to completely obliterate an undeveloped species to make servants, go full on ADVENT on more developed worlds, but for the middle of the road species suddenly my hands ar tied? Bah.

@  Pennpenn : (02 December 2016 - 10:58 PM)

It's annoying in Stellaris how "Pre-sentient" life forms can be Uplifted (turned into sentient and loyal races) and pre-space age civs can be messed around with and taken over, but you can't do anything about "Stone Age Primitives" so they just end up as a permanent debuff to a planet and end up squatting in valuable tiles.

@  Touch My Thighs : (02 December 2016 - 10:10 PM)

So basically I'm 15 hours into Final Fantasy XV and it seems like they took the edgy FF7-style game they were going to make, threw it out and made something actually fun instead.

@  BlackMax : (02 December 2016 - 09:29 PM)

Tom Cruise sucks but I really did enjoy Edge of Tomorrow

@  Benbot : (02 December 2016 - 03:57 PM)

What? They made a new Mummy movie and cast Tom Cruise? I love Cruise, but isn't he kind of expensive? Kind of stupid to rely on his star power to boost a new franchise instead of...like...good writing? I hope it had both, but I'm not holding my breath.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 11:36 PM)

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:26 PM)

...and I just figured that out too

@  unitremover : (30 November 2016 - 12:24 PM)

Oh, hey, I figured it out. Now if I can just find a way to get his upper and lower body to stay pegged together in robot mode I'll be in business.

@  Robowang : (30 November 2016 - 07:55 AM)

Alpha Trion is awesome. Fun transformation, beefy robot mode, sweet sword, amazing headsculpt, and great colors.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 November 2016 - 05:48 AM)

Why? Alpha Trion is pretty cool, even with some flaws. He reminds me of BW2 designs.

@  unitremover : (29 November 2016 - 11:34 PM)

I should've listened to what everybody else said about Alpha Trion and not gotten lured in by the sweet siren call of a new toy evoking Vector Prime

TR Alpha Trion looks like a Space Marine Primarch. Specifically, I'm thinking Fulgrim.

Read it, though it was a bit confusing without the rest of the Club's Classic comic to go with it. But oh well.

It was pretty good and certainly one of FP's less fan-wanky stories. I liked Bug Bite the most and thought it was inspired how they took the e-hobby bio and expanded upon it so much. A shame he had to go and die just when he was getting interesting.

Dreadwind was funny.

Overall, next to Dawn of Future's Past, it's one of the best/least-annoying comics that FP has released and certainly shows an upward trend on their part. It got me wanting to read the rest of the Classics storyline, anyway. So hopefully they release that in trade like they did their Cybertron comic.

I really liked all of the references to the Marvel G1 universe (Old Powermaster partners, scraplets, Shockwave's disembodied head ala Prime, Bludgeon still leading most of the 'cons, Galvatron's fusion cannon lying near Megatron's throne, etc.). I could definitely get into this universe, it feels more G1 to me than either Dreamwave's or IDW's universes (of which I still enjoy the latter).

All in all, a pleasent and easy to read convention comic.



Some golden moments (Thundercracker's constant irritation with Weirdwolf, Dirge getting wasted again icon-fire.gif Dreadwind for example...)


Makes me look forward to the eventual trade we hopefully get in year or so of club comic that this story takes place in.

Well, overall I liked the Beast Wars one better, I think it had better pacing. But I'll have to give it a couple of re-reads anyway. icon-hotrod.gif


I'll say what I did like.

Seeing the Classic's in a form other than the toys, it was good seeing them in comic form.

Dreadwind "Why doesn't anyone like me?" icon-fire.gif , I wonder if we'll see a Darkwind toy in the future.

Weirdwolf's first line. icon-fire.gif

I know next to nothing about the Marvel G1 comics, but I can imagine Shockwave doing something similar to what he did in the DW comics, and Megatron doing this as punishment to him.

I probably wouldn't have noticed Galvatron's fusion cannon on the back of Meg's throne, but anyone else notice Ratchet one the same page. Poor guy.

I can't really think of any minus' flipping through it to make this post, I guess I liked it more than I thought. icon-waspy.gif

Ratchet and Megatron were basically linked at the spark towards the end of the Marvel run, allowing each to see through the other's eyes and have access to their thoughts, so keeping Ratchet alive and in his quarters makes a lot of sense. Although that could arguably be a major weakness of Megs...supposedly killing Ratchet would end his life too.

Like most FP comics, it didn't really do much for me. I agree with Spengler on the good points - it was less fanwanky, and Bug Bite was REALLY well done, in my opinion. Quite an interesting way of putting in his origins and giving him some understandable motivation. That said...

This doesn't really feel like Marvel G1 at all to me, despite all the references. They just feel tacked on. I guess part of it is we're seeing characters introduced - Ultra Magnus, Springer, and Elita One - who weren't really in the comics. If you're going to include Magnus and Springer, you might as well use the UK material. Hell, Ultra Magnus himself feels entirely wrong...I realize part of this is the fact his Classics toy is a Prime repaint, so they have to go with the "Little Prime" stuff, but it doesn't really work for me. And Elita One is a CARTOON character through and through.

Basically, too much of it seems shoehorned into make the Classics toys/appearances fit with the end of the Marvel G1 comic. So we get a lot of characters randomly resurrected without much difficulty (Megs, all the Seekers). Soundwave and the Constructicons all left Bludgeon for some unknown reason. The whole Mini-con storyline seems incredibly unneccessary...we already had Micromasters in G1 Marvel, why would Primus go to the effort of making a whole new race with a whole new name thats...exactly like what we already had?

I dunno, maybe it's just because comic book art and coloring has changed so much since then...it's just the feel. Eh. Would definitely like to see more of this world, though...22 pages is not enough for all the little details and naggling questions we get. I should point out I really like inclusions of Ratchet and Shockwave...never liked how they were basically ignored in the G2 comic. (Though Galvy's cannon doesn't make much sense there. He died fighting Fort Max and drowned deep underwater).

That reminds me, I really hope we see what happens to Fort Max. That would make me very happy...

I'd assume Megatron located Galvatron's body and probably did away with him. Didn't he say to Bugbite "I weary of travelers from other dimensions?" at one point? Who else could Megs be refering to there?

Or maybe Galvatron came back (being thrown in an icy lake after being beaten up hardly seems fatal for Galvatron of all bots) and Megatron dealt with him then. If they are ignoring UK material, Megatron doesn't knw who Galvatron was, unless he had some further dealings with him between Marvel and Classics.

I'd also assume Spike simply retired and Maximus is gathering mothballs somewhere.

Having just met Skyfall and Landmine (and possibly Breakaway, though given where the story stands at present, I'm guessing no), perhaps?

Oh yeah...forgot them. But in any case, Megs probably retrieved Galvatron's body at the very least, seeing as he has the cannon.

It could be that Megatron upgraded himself by studying Galvatron (by the way, Galvy carried a particle beam cannon, not fusion icon-waspy.gif ). With Bugbite's appearance, it does make you wonder where the other former "Gobots" are at. There are a good many questions that I would love answered, but FP would have to have a 22 page monthy comic to get to them all. Also, if Ratchet is alive, and not merely a dead trophee, why didn't the other Autobots pick him up when they got Mirage?

"What's up with Ratchet?" is one of the "monster sized, HUGE" plot holes leftover from Marvel G1 that I'd like to see addressed, and all that image does is tell us that FP is aware of it. It doesn't serve to ANSWER this question in any meaningful way.

As to why the Autobots didn't pick Ratchet up? I doubt they knew he was there. No reason that they would ever have been in that room....
