Why do you hate yourself?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (24 August 2016 - 12:45 AM)

I still need to read everything after Vol. 1 of RG1...

@  Telly : (23 August 2016 - 11:47 PM)

i really wouldve liked to see rg1 pick up where the marvel run left off (or just a couple years after), instead of jumping 20 years. i wanna see how shit went down on earth

@  Dracula : (23 August 2016 - 09:54 PM)

After RG1, I'd just as soon have nobody ever touch the marvel continuity again

@  MEDdMI : (23 August 2016 - 08:46 PM)

I would like a dancing/rhythm game called Rhythms of Darkness, but not necessarily Marvel related.

@  Bass X0 : (23 August 2016 - 07:42 PM)

I'd like a Rhythms of Darkness mini-series from IDW following on from the Marvel issue detailing the events that happened in that continuity after the issue ended. The Marvel movie adaptation and The Big Broadcast of 2006 would take place in the same continuity.

@  Telly : (23 August 2016 - 01:21 AM)

@  OrionPax44 : (23 August 2016 - 12:08 AM)

All I keep getting is the add for the FP Stunticon set I already own

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 August 2016 - 03:37 PM)

Anyone wish Maggie and Glenn from the first movie would return?

@  Cybersnark : (21 August 2016 - 03:19 PM)

And if the movies focused on Lennox and Epps (and Simmons) rather than Manic Weirdo, Fatherly Asshole, Statutory Rape Guy, and Generic Female Characters #432, #527, and #671, they'd already be far, far better movies.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 August 2016 - 03:02 PM)

Lennox and Epps are the exact opposite of "terrible."

@  Cybersnark : (21 August 2016 - 02:47 PM)

Honestly, the movie designs look fine and are totally recognizable, the problem is how they're filmed (in close-up, shakeycam, with split-second cuts). We just need more wide shots, and a plot that focuses on the TFs as characters rather than as props for the (terrible) human characters..

@  Boomhauer : (21 August 2016 - 01:45 PM)

Yeah it's pretty obvious that the movie designs go out of their way to have parts in particular places that move around like muscles. They're going for metal aliens instead of megazords. A reboot, no matter how faithful to G1, would probably still have to try and go for a visual style that allows that kind of fluid movement.

@  cefurox : (21 August 2016 - 10:17 AM)

wew lad

@  unluckiness : (21 August 2016 - 08:48 AM)

At the very least, they make it tougher to see when parts clip through other parts

@  Fnu Aw : (21 August 2016 - 08:45 AM)

The movie designs were never about realism. They're about natural looking movement. Realistic G1 style designs would not move the way we want to see Transformers move. They'd collide with their own boxiness. The shredded metal look of the movie designs lets them flex.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 August 2016 - 06:18 AM)

IDW's art styles varied wildly throughout the years. And I'm not sure how "realism" is a reason to have one over any other since we don't know what shape-changing metal lifeforms really look like.

@  MEDdMI : (21 August 2016 - 05:51 AM)

I liked Eric the best, since he felt the most like a real person to me and had character growth over the series.

@  MEDdMI : (21 August 2016 - 05:50 AM)

Sort of. It was never animated, but if you scroll down to ep 28 and you can read the script for the final ep.

@  tffan01 : (21 August 2016 - 05:47 AM)

of course I'm not talking about Sunbow or Marvel, they look like people in cardboard boxes, I mean IDW, they look both interesting, realistic and also G1 enough.

@  Bass X0 : (21 August 2016 - 05:43 AM)

Did the kids in the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon ever find a way home for good?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 11:15 PM)

Since we're talking about design styles, wasn't AHM like that?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Yeah, look at IDW. All its lead writers are longstnading fans, but it's not like they've tried to wholly shoehorn Marvel or Sunbow into IDW.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 11:10 PM)

Or even a new style that isn't quite like any of the others.

@  Pennpenn : (20 August 2016 - 11:09 PM)

Even if they simplified the designs they'd probably look more like Prime than G1.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 10:59 PM)

Also, "they'll go to G1 because they already used over-complicated movie designs" is a bit of a false dichotomy.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 09:45 PM)

Also, flat-nosed trucks don't look intimidatingly cool to most American audiences. Movies got to find some way to get funding.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 08:23 PM)

When someone stands next to say, Optimus Prime's leg it would just look like there's a large blue rectangle.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 08:21 PM)

In live-action, they would all look flat and underdetailed when they're supposed to be huge.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 03:32 PM)

I'm 90% sure they will be using more G1-ish designs in the reboot (if there'll be such a thing of course). They already used over-complicated movie designs, they'll return to G1.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 03:15 PM)

All I'm saying is when they reboot it, they might want to try something they never did in the screen and use G1-ish designs.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 02:57 PM)

Why? Would a classic G1 aesthetic make money?

@  ShadowMan024 : (20 August 2016 - 02:38 PM)

I don't think that switching to G1 would "correct" anything.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 02:22 PM)

I actually believe they would switch to G1 because I feel like the next director would try to correct 'wrongs' of the older movies.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 August 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Also, if they get to the point of completely rebooting the movies with an entirely different aesthetic I highly doubt they'd switch specifically to G1.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 02:13 PM)

A design alone doesn't say anything. The designs and the setting together are what TFWiki would deliberate upon.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 02:13 PM)

I know but a movie character would definitely gets his sub page because of the tie-ins, it would be far too long.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 August 2016 - 02:12 PM)

Sub-pages are not done because of new franchises; they are done for length reasons.

@  tffan01 : (20 August 2016 - 02:12 PM)

So besides LOZ:OOT 3D what are some other good games I could play for it?

As an aside: Yes Kal, I still have the DS you sold me; I'm not getting rid of that being the Zelda fan I am.

EDIT: Got it to update thanks to the nintendo website.

Star Fox 64 is good. Also, the upcoming Pokemon Rumble Blast and next month's Super Mario 3D Land are must-haves.

Right now it's mostly ports but in the future Nintendo have
Super Mario Land 3D
Luigis Mansion 2
Kid Icarus

Capcom have:
Resident Evil Revelations
Monster Hunter 3G

Which are guaranteed to be good if you like the console versions.
And I am sure there will be a lot more games in the future.

I've gotten a few 3DS games so far, here's my opinions. In order of purchase.

Ridge Racer 3D: It's really good, because it's Ridge Racer. But you have to 'grind' through too many no-challenge easy grand prixes to get to the challenging parts, and it might be too familiar if you have played RR 6 and 7 or the PSPs games a lot. Semi-recommended.
Pilotwings Resort: Quite nice, and fun while it lasts, which will only be 10 hours. Much as there are commendable parts of the game, unless you can get it really cheap, and don't mind it being primarily a score attack challenge, I can't recommend it.
Puzzle Bobble Universe: basically terrible, limited levels, no multiplayer and awful, imprecise controls. Avoid.
Ocarina of Time 3D: Amazing. The game has aged like fine wine, and looks better than ever. Best 30 hours of gameplay I've had in years. Strongly recommended.
Star Fox 64 3D: reveals how the game wasn't actually that good in the first place. Completely humdrum and unexciting. Awful Sega Saturn style 'pop up' too. Unless you rabidly love Star Fox 64 and want to play again for score attack purposes, don't. Unrecommended.

(Also played Nintendogs + Cats, as my sister owns it. It's Nintendogs, with cats, in 3D. Basically.)

Incidentally, I've noticed lots of advert hoardings for the 3DS on bus stops here in the UK. The sole games advertised are Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, which aren't even out yet. Possibly worrying, that.

Ghost Recon Shadow Wars is excellent if you like turn based strategy.
Samurai Warriors is really great too if you like those those types of games. I've logged in close to 80 hours on it thanks to all the free DLC. icon-silverbolt.gif
Tetris Axis is good, but not spectacular. Definitely not a "show off" game, but hey, it's Tetris and its packed with a ton of Tetris variations (bombtris, tower climber, etc.)

I've been looking everywhere for reviews of that one. It intrigues me.

I'd never played a Lego game before, so Lego Star Wars and Pirates were a lot of fun. I have a soft spot for my Nintendogs (and cat), but I know that's not for everyone. All 3 of the arcade fighters are good, if you have the skills to compete. I'm partial to the over-the-shoulder mode in Street Fighter 4. My roommate enjoyed the Splinter Cell port, but I never got to try it. I'm about 60 hours in to Devil Survivor Overclocked, but it doesn't use the 3D much at all. And it's a strategy RPG.

Cave Story looks good too. And I can't wait for Kingdom Hearts and Animal Crossing. I wouldn't worry about Kid Icarus and Luigi not having ads yet, since they don't come out until next year, and the Marios will be the backbone of the holiday sales season.

Spider-Man Edge of Time is the exact same game as the console versions but from what I read it's nothing to get excited about on any platform.
Here's some videos of it from a camera

I haven't bought it yet thanks to some reviews and will wait till it drops in price.



Here's hoping Transformers Fall of Cybertron gets a similar port.

Yeah lately it seems Nintendo starts with a Zelda as their killer app, then move on to Mario to continue sales before going to any other big character in their library.

I'm sure Star Fox is good. I don't have the 3DS version, but I do have the N64 version and I'm pretty sure The 3DS should be amazing. Personally, the games I actually have:

Zelda OoT - Amazing! I was a big fan of the original. This has it beat in all ways

Super Street Fighter 4 - Not quite as detailed as its console counterparts. Doesn't have the arcade edition or the animation in the backgrounds either. But still, if you want a portable Street Fighter, this is the one to get, hands down.

Dead or Alive Dimensions - Pretty good. Being used to the Street Figher control scheme, it took some getting used to. But it's also a very good game, lots of unlockables...and of course jiggly physics...not that that's the reason I bought it or anything... icon-wildride.gif

I'm also highly enticipating Kid Icarus. The wait is killing me.

Also, if you're looking to download - Four Swords is pretty awesome, and still free. Links Awakening is also a pretty solid buy. Whenever the ambassedor downloads come out for general public consumers, Super Mario Bros, Zelda and Zelda II are fun...yes, I did say Zelda II. I never finished it, but there is some fun to be had with it.

Super Street Fighter IV and Dead or Alive are both really wonderful, and so is BlazBlue. The 3DS definitely has some good fighters. Rayman 3D is also really fun - it is a port, but of a really classic late '90s 3D platformer.
