@  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)

woot woot, thank you kindly!

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

Head's up, GOG has Neverwinter Nights up for free for about another 30 hours or so

@  Verity Carlo : (01 December 2016 - 07:30 PM)

the men who murdered my imaginary friends

@  Locoman : (01 December 2016 - 05:30 PM)

I'm coming, Baby Legs! I'm.... Regular... Legs!

@  Benbot : (01 December 2016 - 04:05 PM)

What are you worried about, come get fake doors!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 December 2016 - 02:07 PM)

I just found out that Blue from Blue's Clues is a girl. Whoa.

@  Bass X0 : (01 December 2016 - 01:14 PM)

Holy Magikrap!

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 08:45 AM)

Also, TR Triggerhappy is a good mold.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 07:34 AM)

I should have said "not staying together", but anyway.

@  unluckiness : (01 December 2016 - 06:50 AM)

My Astrotrain had that but some floor polish on the tabs helped.

@  Pennpenn : (01 December 2016 - 06:48 AM)

On the subject of recalcitrant TR voyagers, does anyone else have an issue with Sentinel Prime's legs staying together in space-brick mode?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (01 December 2016 - 03:40 AM)

Holy crap or holy carp? ;)

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.
