Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

@summer, I was wondering why it looks like an ordinary TF group instead of being about TFWiki.

@  zephyrX9 : (30 April 2016 - 12:18 AM)

ok so either ages three and up sold out of victorion or their system is confusing so i guess im getting computron instead. rip my dream of ladybots everywhere

@  Summer : (29 April 2016 - 02:07 PM)

The TFWiki Facebook group has long since been abandoned by the actual TFWiki moderators, and there's little to no affiliation with the actual site.

Anyone else pumped about this game? Here is the IGN page for it, with some videos and information. Everyone's calling comparing it to Skyrim, which is unavoidable given they share the same genre and setting. But, in my opinion, this game looks way more fun and original than Skyrim, and it's already my most anticipated game of 2012.

Oh, I remember this trailer, saw it like a year ago... I laughed my a** off. Has all the classic "how to make an uber-cool trailer" cliches, and overdoes it by 100%. First, even a 1st level adventurer knows that you DON'T stab a skeleton... they kinda don't have any vital organs at all. Second time I went LOL was when the guy holds the giant two-handed war maul in one hand, by the handle, without flinching... icon-fire.gif

That said, I like RPGs, so I checked what combat will be like...

QUOTE
Combat works based on the timing of button presses, similar to the style of an action RPG, with occasional quicktime events like those in the God of War series


Thanks game, you lost me there. Salvatore and McFarlane in one game or not, this is an action game, not a proper RPG, so I will skip this.

I'm keeping a skeptical eye on it. It's got a lot of hype but for whatever reason feels like something that could very much be all hype in the end. I'll see what the reviews say when it ships.

- ZacWilliam, kinda expects it to bomb but even if it's good I don't know that I need another Skyrim ish game. Skyrim got it perfect IMO, and still has like years of content I havn't touched yet...

I was surprised to learn that it wasn't an MMO, and then very disappointed to learn that it wasn't going to have co-op.

So right now, I dunno. My enthusiasm, which was sky high initially, has since dimmed considerably.

might be a first day availability thing for gold users, not sure quite how that works.


As for the demo, gave it a shot for the mass effect goodies. Was more fableish than I was expecting seems alright though. I didn't get to utilize my full 45 minutes post intro dungeon because the game froze up on me while fighting random woodland creatures. The only other real odd thing I noticed in the beginning was that it was difficult to actually talk to the gnomes, despite the interact prompt their text only appeared for like a split second. I'm going to give this a second run through because I want my damn chakrum launcher ( I'm sure it'll be useless but it's free damn it!) It's by no means a day one purchase for me but it seems a decent enough game. I'll consider it when it hits 20-30$.

Big name Xbox demos are usually Gold exclusive for the first week or so. I would have prefer trying it there too, but I'm downloading it on PS3 since I 'm impatient.

-ZacWilliam, but GAH does Sony's online service BLOW, it takes like 6 hours to download a game. I've never had an Xbox demo take more than 15 minutes, tops.

Finally got to play the demo tonight.

It did not thrill me. After Skyrim it felt very, very video gamey. In the worst sense. The combat was good and fast (occassionally almost too fast). The story telling and characters felt fake and unrealistic in a very very "move the video game along" way. The art is Fable meets WoW and that was fine, but on the whole the game, setting, npcs and characters just seemed so much less polished, immersive and involving than Skrim or SW:OR or even the Dragon Age games. Not to be harsh, but storywise it felt very old school fakey video game and less like a real fantasy world you were living.

On top of that this is easily the glitchiest, most unfinished demo I've ever played on a console. Music kept cutting out. Dialogue and voices were unfinished or auto-fast forwarded far faster than I could read, and in several spots the graphics glitched and went full screen psychedelic blurr.


-ZacWilliam, also the faces are pretty ugly, but the other stuff is worse. Demo convinced me this is a pass. Thankfully Skyrim has so much more yet to give. icon-hotrod.gif

I don't understand how these things can be issues for you and yet youre totally okay with skyrims flaws? Get over yourself. And I've heard a bunch of complaints and about glitches in the demo but I didn't experience any myself. What did everyone play their demo on?

I played it on the 360. twice it froze in the same area fighting red legion bandits after passing through gorharth or whatever the town was called the third time I just waited the 45 minutes out in town so I could finish the demo and get my ME3 weapon. The bugs I experienced were not being able to speak to several NPCs and the aforementioned console freezes, (didn't encounter any of the weird running through the sky glitches that have appeared on youtube) My understanding is that the demo is a cut down build of the game from several months ago and that most of the issues have been taken care of in the mean time. As I said It's not going to be a day one purchase for me but I'd consider picking the game up down the line when the price drops.

Xbox here, the only issue I had were the occasional texture glitches that would pop up when I would use a charge attack with my daggers.

Xbox finally dropped it to the "free" users and I got to play it tonight. The only real graphical glitch I saw was that people were talking but sometimes the lips didn't move. Anyway...

Alright, so I liked it. The fighting was fluid, the control were intuitive enough that you could mix and match well. There was a good level of customization to the equipment (No stupid jive like class or type restrictions.) and the leveling seemed incredibly complete and detailed. Even the graphics and world was crafted in a way that I appreciated it, and the story (what I was presented.) felt good, reasonably fleshed out. All in all, I liked it, liked it enough that I would buy it.

That said: I am NOT buying it. It seems to require a constant connection to EA servers to play, which means the game has an incredibly limited life span, even moreso if it sells poorly. Unless the full version doesn't require server validation to play, I won't buy it. We're gonna have to sacrifise on decent content to teach corporations that we will not be jerked around by stupid DRM.
