@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:06 PM)

Over 40 minutes of waiting on the phone to find out if they had Galvatron (I was aiming for a price match deal if they did). Along the way, I ended up connecting to two other customers who were waiting to be connected to other departments.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 12:00 PM)

Man, Walmart... that was an adventure of sorts yesterday...

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:57 AM)

I saw megatron at walmart, and astrotrain as well. Figured they were in the same case assortment. Now I don't know what to think.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Still hoping to find Chromedome, and another shot at Rewind. Not part of the sale, but...

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:25 AM)

Wow, didn't even know those were out here yet.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 December 2016 - 11:15 AM)

I got me an astrotrain at that sale! Wanted a megatron too, but didn't find one.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (04 December 2016 - 11:14 AM)

Went to TRU to take advantage of a 40% off deal they had on Sentinel Prime and Galvatron (I wanted the latter), but they were out of stock before the sale even began. =P Got a raincheck, at least.

@  BlackMax : (04 December 2016 - 08:33 AM)

Huh. Maybe I can figure a way to headcanon IDW Strafe into being AoE Strafe...

@  zephyrX9 : (04 December 2016 - 03:12 AM)

I'm sure under a different artist, she might look like something!

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:50 AM)

She....well, I'm not sure what she turns into, but it involves her face splitting in half.

@  Verity Carlo : (04 December 2016 - 01:49 AM)

There was also Strafe for Female Dinobots.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

http://tfwiki.net/mediawiki/images2/3/33/Raptoricon_symbol.jpg

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 11:57 PM)

plus the best faction insignia ever

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but yeah we need toys of those Raptoricons yesterday.

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 11:27 PM)

but BW also set the precedent that the gender of the scanned beast mode doesn't need to match the robot mode...so bright colors are fine ;)

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 11:04 PM)

That WOULD be a very good point, except Slash has got ~all the bright colors~, and in the bird world (which as we all know is also the dino world)rampant bright colors are a male thing.

@  LordGigaIce : (03 December 2016 - 10:56 PM)

There was that one Deluxe raptor mould from AoE....GET ON IT FUNPU....oh. Now I'm sad.

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 10:54 PM)

...I did not know bout this. Maybe I should amend my comment to "we need more female Dinotobts ~who have toys~."

@  Dracula : (03 December 2016 - 10:05 PM)

@BlackMax - did you know about the Raptoricons? Currently they've only been in fan club prose but they have pretty badass designs and are all female.

@  Rycochet : (03 December 2016 - 09:21 PM)

More female dinosaur transformers would be nice, but not specifically dinobots. Never been a fan of adding new guys to that specific subgroup, it feels a bit like when ageing rock bands add new members.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2016 - 09:02 PM)

Wait, swoop isn't a woman?

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Can I just take a moment and declare that we need some female Dinobots? Because we really need some female Dinobots.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:41 PM)

It was awesome seeing all those heroes together on screen, though. I hope Superman and Martian Manhunter get to participate in the next crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:36 PM)

The solution was also just a bit too easy... the Dominators are apparently just big sissys, give 'em a poke with a caddle prod and they'll run off

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2016 - 05:35 PM)

Yeah, I felt Arrow was the weakest entry... but after least season I kind of got turned off the show, and haven't watched any of the current season.

@  Jalaguy : (03 December 2016 - 05:34 PM)

It was good, but would've been better if Arrow hadn't co-opted its portion to do an relatively pointless anniversary episode.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 December 2016 - 05:31 PM)

Haven't seen any of the DC shows.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2016 - 05:24 PM)

How did y'all feel about this week's CW DC shows crossover? I thought it was great and reminiscent of comic books!

@  BlackMax : (03 December 2016 - 08:25 AM)

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.

@  Verity Carlo : (02 December 2016 - 10:53 PM)

To put it simply, everyone is in a race to become god.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (02 December 2016 - 10:42 PM)

I'm playing Tales of Zestiria instead.

@  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)

...and now that I've sat home a short bit I realize I completely forgot to look for Ross, TJ MAXX or Marshalls in the area. Damn.

@  ShadowMan024 : (02 December 2016 - 09:20 PM)

I envy you.

@  BlackMax : (02 December 2016 - 09:17 PM)

Just found RiD Warriors Bisk and Ratchet, plus TR Hot Rod, while hunting. It was a good night.

@  ShadowMan024 : (02 December 2016 - 08:28 PM)

"You hugin' people..."

@  Strafe : (02 December 2016 - 07:36 PM)

I liked that one, too. I'm not a fan of the guy at all, but "A Few Good Men" is still one of my all-time favorite movies. He's fantastic as Lt. Daniel Kaffee.

@  Kalidor : (02 December 2016 - 06:24 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)

Now if only I could get one of my GoG games to work right (well series of games) :(

@  Kalidor : (01 December 2016 - 11:24 PM)

Thanks, I picked it up. Worth it for the soundtrack alone

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 10:01 PM)

GoG is awsome.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2016 - 08:07 PM)

@  Dekafox : (01 December 2016 - 07:42 PM)

I saw this on CAD this morning, and felt the need to share.

http://projectzomboid.com/blog/

Alright, I know there's some hate for him going on here, so let me set the record straight: Tim buckley has nothing to do with this game, I simply found the link on his website. Being a huge fan of all things undead and survival, I then felt the need to SHARE.


Anyway: Indie dev, being released in patched stages much like minecraft, and featuring the zombie survival we all crave. Whats not to like? I'm going to watch this for a while, but probably still end up buying before beta.

Alright, starting to like the... possibilities of this game. It's a tech demo right now, so you die and quick no matter what. I made it all the way through the toturial without getting bit, hurt, setting the house on fire, anything, and some guy walks in with a shotgun and decides he wants the house. He kills the wife, and I ran for it. Right out the front door, round the back, in the kitchen, turned on the oven on my way out so the house would burn down, out the front and into the rest of the city. They actually programmed quite a bit of space to the place, so lots of undead, good terrain...

It's a buyer, thats for sure.

I just ran it on my little netbook (1.6 ghz, 1 gig of ram.) and it ran at basically full speed. I did encounter some problems: namely the wife wasn't on the bed (though you were still interacting with her.) and it couldn't zoom. These might be because the netbook is running xp, because java isn't all up to date, or any number of other things. Going to make sure everything is up to spec and try again.

Edit: updated java, restarted the computer and tried again. Same errors, but it could related to the OS or configuration. I wanted an excuse to upgrade this thing, so I guess I got it. Either way, it runs at full speed (or ridiculously close to it.).

Hmmm. So I installed windows 7 on the netbook. It was a portable edition, now the damn thing boots in about 30 seconds, easily half the time of before. And I ran the game (You just lost it.) but it took far longer to load, was jerky and laggy, and was still missing the wife on the bed.

So, there you go.

Alright. It's now firmly an alpha build, and the first patch has made it... pretty hugging great actually. Zombie behavior has changed some, they tend to wander now, which makes for packs as they have a chance of capturing the attention of meandering zombies in a small number of them go by. I actually got cornered in a building while scavving, and had to retreat up stairs. Ran out of ammo, and that's all she wrote, about a hundred of them descended on me. I killed about half with 11 shells though, so... go me? I wanted to go back and kill the som'bitch what killed my wife, but... yeah.

Go, play it! Fun!

Still have not gotten this yet. I noticed it's in pounds or something rather than US currency. How does this work? Does Google check out take care of this for me? If so does it tell me how much it's going to be in $ before I buy? If not, does anyone know the conversion rate?

Google check out knows the conversion rate of the day, so if you use a credit card like I did, then its all automatically covered for you. It wound up costing me 10 bucks about a week ago.

Sounds really interesting. I'll get it, but I think I'm going to wait a bit untill it is more developed to avoid Minecraftitis bordem. You know, you play the content, then a patch comes out, entertaining you for another day... I want to wait just a bit so I have more content at once.

There's no save in the beta version either. It's SUPPOSED to be that way... right now anyway. See, the point of the game isn't winning, its how long you can stave off losing, so no save at the moment. I think the forums mentioned implementing a basic save functionality later, but what form it will take is a crap shoot.

I get that, but it also means that its not possible to play for long periods of time.

Just because you can save doesn't mean you can go back to the last save after you die.

But there needs to be a way to suspend progress while you aren't playing.

I might play more later, but right now I only have a few minutes here and there.

I can last about a half an hour anyway before I do something stupid. Yeah, the lack of any kind of save file is... limiting. I figure they should make it so that it saves when you quit the game, and then deletes it after reload. No reverting to save file that way, but you can still get up and walk away if need be.

Okay. Had my first real playthrough
Spoilers for anybody that may be spoiled by things.


Bandage-Check
Painkillers-Check
Raiding houses-Check (even made a sweet bat with a nail in it)

Got back to the house... was very overloaded...
Couldn't figure out how to make soup! I was just expecting to be able to open the can with a canopener.... I didn't realize the bowl was needed too.

Got really sleepy when I was trying to unload my spoils into my cabinets (I really felt the interface was very awkward here) and make soup.

Got so sleepy that I started having (zombie) halucinations! Cool touch.

Went to bed, figured out the soup thing in the morning.
Heated up the soup, went to put more things away...
And caught my house on fire. I couldn't figure out how to put it out... and I got caught on fire too... Didn't see how to move the girl so I ran. As soon as I opened the door BAM pack of zombies... I laughed.
It was fun.
(but not quite how real ovens work)
