@Patchy 'cause people like how the kaiser rolls!

@  MEDdMI : (26 July 2016 - 05:47 AM)

I'm officially addicted to the Comics theme. Every other themes are dull and boring now, I can't stand to look at them for more than a few posts.

@  Broadside : (26 July 2016 - 03:59 AM)

"Beast Wars anniversary"? Highly dubious.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (26 July 2016 - 12:16 AM)

How come everybody wanna keep it like the kaiser?

@  zephyrX9 : (26 July 2016 - 12:16 AM)

the kaiser stole our beast wars toys

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 July 2016 - 08:35 PM)

beast wars dicketeth anniversary

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

@  Telly : (25 July 2016 - 05:21 PM)

its the rye of the kaiser its the thrill of the the fight

Mayhem is, somewhat ironically, one of the least random parts of the board. I really don't know how that happened.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 06:34 AM)

Not even close.

@  MEDdMI : (25 July 2016 - 05:51 AM)

What, Mayhem isn't random enough???

@  NotVeryKnightly : (25 July 2016 - 04:02 AM)

This place never feels random enough in that respect.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 July 2016 - 02:10 AM)

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:22 PM)

Topic-specific threads are the main feature of messageboards like this, you know.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2016 - 07:21 PM)

You should ask that in the TFWiki thread.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 07:18 PM)

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

"Micronauts: Starring psychic Peter Quill and E123-Omega".

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

Is anyone Beta Testing this yet?

I am, but not legitimately. Someone who shops at my store gave us his beta login and we share it, but I am the one who plays it the most.

I opted in a few weeks ago but haven't gotten anything back yet.

How is it? Less tedious than CoH?

Overall its... better than CoH. But its still CoH 2 any way you look at it.

You can throw cars though, so that's a nice touch.

I'd love to hug around with their costume creator, but I'm not motivated enough to playtest the actual game, so I didn't bother trying to get into the beta.

You can make ANYTHING.

Back in the 90s me and a friend had a 'Mutant Armadillo' named Tank. We made a version of Tank in CoH that was basically a grey stocky guy.

This is what we made in CO.


And I got news for you, there are no Armadillo parts in the costume creator. And the best part? His 'stance' is that he runs on all fours and his travel power is burrowing.

Kal, I've been in on it for a few months. I used to hate it because it ran like garbage and a lot of the costume pieces were out of whack. I recently upped the graphics load on it and for some reason it runs a million times better. My lvl 33 guy got wiped during the purge, but I am trying out a ton of new powers. Let me know your name and server and I'll hit you up.

Also, we shouldn't be violating the NDA, but I really hate playing alone. It defeats the MMO's purpose.

I'm making a new guy when the servers go up, so I'll be starting at square one.

EDIT:

PS- I notice you have cel-shading off. Seeing the game with Cel-shading has made me never want to turn it off.

I've been beta testing for about a month now, having a lot of fun with it.

Mentioning we are in beta doesn't violate the NDA, as Cryptic's said we can mention it, but I think those screenshots may be pushing it.

Oh, that's fine then. I wasn't going to be a tattle about it. I was just concerned we'd get our beta powers taken, haha.

We need to all swap names.

Go to Champions-online.com, there's a graphic link there to apply for the beta. They're not constantly inviting, though, they seem to invite a ton of people in all at once, and applying is no guarantee that you'll get in.

Maybe not a full one, but at walmart I see small ones that connect to the controllers. Looks like the kinda keyboards you see on phones nowady.

They worked it so you can play with just the controller.

I believe the 360 is their lead system, so it should play great.
