@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

the band name is Journey btw.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 02:25 PM)

i never heard Journey before today (BBC R2 Ken Bruce Show) but recognised it immediately.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2016 - 11:33 AM)

bees are revolutionary force, wasps are mecernaries.

@  Rycochet : (21 September 2016 - 09:36 AM)

But wasps can survive stinging, it's why they're such b*****ds and will fly straight at you. Buzzy buzzy bees on the other hand...

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2016 - 09:30 AM)

I was stung by a wasp yesterday and just got a letter from his family solicitor for manslaughter

@  Robowang : (21 September 2016 - 08:45 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2016 - 08:41 AM)

@  Broadside : (21 September 2016 - 07:03 AM)

There are worse mistakes to make!

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 September 2016 - 07:01 AM)

Ian saw that "see you turn into a Chris McFeely" post, didn't get the reference, and took it seriously.

@  Broadside : (21 September 2016 - 06:48 AM)

Action Man really ramped up the awful puns this issue. Maybe after McFeely died last issue, Ian took on his mantle?

@  Telly : (20 September 2016 - 05:29 PM)

been thinking of getting a soundbar. but what exactly do they do? are they like home theater systems but without satellite speakers?

@  MEDdMI : (20 September 2016 - 12:52 PM)

These days, there's Craig's List. (use at your own risk)

@  Bass X0 : (20 September 2016 - 12:46 PM)

I just remembered that the Marvel UK Transformers comic printed the full address of kids wanting to trade with other fans. Surely that wouldn't be allowed today?

  • Fair warning that this is the panel that usually includes a "no photography" slideshow. We're going to try to bring it to you live, but if Hasbro says no devices, we'll have to get you a report after it's over.
  • UPDATE (1:09pm PST) No devices. Denied! Daytonus has promised us a report immediately following. Sorry guys, I wanted the live coverage too. icon-screamer.gif

This is the one where they show all the super cool stuff we're not allowed to see becuase we didn't spend the $ to go cross country.

The Saturday panel is more-or-less for the stuff on the shelves/in the pipeline. Goes roughly 6 months out.

This is the panel for wowing you with stuff that's often not quite that far along, but you're likely to want hard. Last year, this panel is where we first heard about most of the Generations/RTS stuff like Lugnut and Perceptor and all that--things that were only released (or "released") just recently.

Oh, the poor fans. They'll have to wait an hour to get their information for free instead of immediately.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Well you know. There're these things called "pen" and "paper" and they can transcribe real-time and allow one to report after the fact. icon-fire.gif

I'm sure we'll get all the news.

The most interesting, and "no devices" now. Hasbro, do you realize how many fans you piss off with this?

Those five people who have never been to, or heard of Botcon? No pictures. Ever. Everything takes pictures now, so no everything.

This is a treat for the die-hard fans that actually stayed on Sunday, and is traditionally where the best reveals are. It's no surprise it's no-photos, no-devices.

Hey, any of you guys remember last Sunday's panel, when they revealed Lugnut, and some idiot shouted "GLORIOUS" at the top of his lungs abotu seven times?

That was me icon-fire.gif

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

Yeah, I don't blame Hasbro for wanting to keep the special slideshow for those present... well, special. They have to balance their desires to do cool things for us (the fandom) against the levels of security and secrecy required of being a business.

I'm impatient and want my reveals NOW, but the previous years have shown that Hasbro can't be nice about it. If they want to prevent leaks, they have to shut it all down... and even then...

I hope Solus does Gilbert and Sullivan. (Like, y'know, Mordin.)

Their species is monogendered. Male and female have no real meaning to them.

Wooo! New Thirteen member!
Also glad to see Nexus. I was actually a little afraid they were going to dump him and come up with someone new.
Also, whoever the Beastformer of The 13 is better not turn into a real animal.


And I was right about them making separate MMOs for different markets.
Kind of want to play both. Although, I'm more excited for the Jagex one.

edit: From what we saw of Prima and what I've heard of the others I kind of hope those guys get another slight redesign before they show up anywhere.
I'm ok with them using the Prime aesthetic. I just want it to be a bit more obvious they they're Transformers.

Some of those were good questions.
Like confirming that characters from the "aligned" continuity will be appearing transmedia.

edit:
I can understand the The 13 stuff being like the pre-LOTR stuff, but I still would like them in some physical form.
Anything would be nice, even Kreons.

While I'm pleased to finally get it flatly-stated that "aligned" is not "multiverse"... "aligned" seems anything BUT.

It's all one big story in several parts that don't necessarily fit together, it seems... so something like a comic universe, I guess, where each title has their own thing going on that technically happens in/effects the others, but doesn't necessarily HAVE to (outside of "events" of course)?

Seems like trading one concept of multiple continuities for another is all it really boils down to.

Aligned is a separate multiverse from the previous multiverse, as I read it.
