Maybe like how Megaempress and her 4 Guards showed up so many male Cybertrons and Destrons. *snerk*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 September 2016 - 03:00 PM)

Maybe as a female EDC officer who actually kicks his ass for a change.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 September 2016 - 03:00 PM)

And Carly too.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (29 September 2016 - 03:00 PM)

I would be thrilled to see him in the IDW continuity in the near future.

After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

I cut out the middleman and assume that they're all jerks and/or shills.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 05:11 AM)

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

Sakamoto or Sipher's art?

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

That makes sense, thank you.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 07:30 PM)

Djw?

Yeah, it was really sad that they didn't survive in any of the endings. Eaten by Unicron every time.

I wish I could have seen Kick Axe live.

@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 09:51 AM)

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

@  Dracula : (26 September 2016 - 09:34 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 09:32 AM)

Hillary versus Trump tonight. Oh boy.

This game has been around for a few months now and I remember it was a bit controversial when it was first announced.

Basically, take your regular Risk game (world map, army tokens, dice, territory cards) BUT get ready to either write on your board - PERMANENTLY, put stickers on it, and maybe (having read the rules, no, not maybe - SURELY) also destroy parts of it such as cards. The idea is that constant warfare will permanently change the world - actions in game one by one player will have repercussions in the following games (such as renaming a continent, destroying a territory, founding cities which give bonuses). In a few games, your board of Risk Legacy will be remarkably different from someone else's because the actions will not be the same.

When it was announced, lots of people thought the idea was ludicrous, as the game calls upon you to write on your board and destroy parts of it. But when it was released, most of the critics I've seen were ranging from positive to raving praise. I even discussed it with a friend of mine at last year's New Year's party, and his reaction was "WTF??!? Why would anyone play that?". First thing I know, 2 weeks later, he bought the game and can't stop talking about how awesome it is. Him and his local friends are about at their 8th game, last he told me, and some parts have been destroyed, lots of renaming has been done, and new cards were added to the game (some in-game events make you open envelopes or packs which add to the game).

Well, today I caved and grabbed a copy. I read through the rules. The 1st game will look a lot like a regular Risk game, but the victory point mechanic is definitely something I'll have to grasp. Also, I like that the 5 factions will have not only a different look to it, but different rules - and my rules will be different from yours (1st game, you actually apply stickers to your faction card, and destroy the unused choices) but I think I'll have a hard time choosing from either Die Mechaniker, the Imperial Balkania (as I like the 2 looks) or Khan Industries (Big Battlemechs, LOVE - but if I let others play it, I'll have justification to yell "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!")

So... Anyone try it? Any war stories you'd like to share?





Oh... and the game is a damn temptress... One of the packs, hidden from the others...

I want to play a few games before I even want to contemplate doing that icon-fire.gif

But damn, than envelope stuck on the bottom of the box is like sticking a big red "DO NOT TOUCH" button in a Loony Toon Cartoon. You KNOW you're going to push it eventually.

I just noticed also that the gameboard is numbered - mine is Earth #524.

I'm not clicking. I want to *play* those games before finding what is in there. THis thread wasn't a "anyone knows what's in the packs?" but "has anyone else tried this game, and what do you think?"

HUUUUUUUGE Controversy on the 'Geek. Lotta people aren't too keen on permanently destroying bits of a game you're paying $60 bucks for. I'm one of them. I appreciate the novelty and idea of permanent changes to the game board, with the cavat that once you've played the requiste twelve games, your now stuck with the results for all time. Don't like that bit much.

EDIT: Devcon, you might want to check out the session reports on the 'Geek. There are several that are spoiler free, and give you a good idea of what to expect.

I couldn't bring my self to destroy the game itself. The concept is really awesome but the whole Destroy pieces and stuff is something I just couldn't do.

It isn't a relic. I always like how a new pair of shoes looks, but I buy them and little by little they are destroyed every day. If you buy a book of crossword puzzles, it is basically understood that each page is only good once and every time you play there is a permanent effect on the book. Just get yourself a regular Risk and also a Risk Legacy and don't mess up your regular Risk.

My friend got the game, but made scans of all the stickers and card sheets, and laminated the entire board so we can start over fresh if we so choose.

It's pretty awesome. We've only got two games in so far, but we're looking forward to more.

Yes that is the way I would go. Still we still need to play my Bro's LOTR Risk. Man I had a Star Wars Risk at one point too but lost it when I moved back home from Fort Campbell.

We're big risk fanatics. I had a copy of Risk: 2210 that got some very serious play since I first got it, damn, more than a decade and a half ago. Between us, we have just about every variation of Risk there is. The Trilogy Edition of Lord of the Rings has been a big favorite for a long time. We actually have both PT and OT SW risks, but both make too many sacrifices for theme to be that awesome.

We only have the LotR version that came out around The Two Towers. Reading the instructions does make it sound like a fun game.
