I can't believe I forgot one of the core rules of video games. When the question is "They can't be that stupid, can they?" the answer is almost always "Yes they can".

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 02:39 PM)

the debate sems to be over.

@  MEDdMI : (24 August 2016 - 02:37 PM)

Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:55 PM)

Intent is not the same as result. And comics end up ignoring things quite often.

@  Telly : (24 August 2016 - 12:54 PM)

maybe they figured a lot of people that read gi joe also read transformers. so they throw a crossover/build up in their to get some excitement for the new comic coming

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:51 PM)

If G2 universe was to be unrelated to G I Joe, why did they do a prelude to it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:33 PM)

Classics and RG1 not including Joe issues 138-145 in their backstory does not preclude them from including TF 1-80, or even the Joe and TF miniseries.

So, didja hear? Pac-Man is getting a new animated series!

It's being co-produced by Avi Arad and Rick Ungar (X-Men: Evolution, Biker Mice from Mars), will be in 3D, and is coming to Disney XD in Fall 2013.

More info and a blurry video can be seen here.

Plus, the original Pac-Man cartoon's first season just came out on DVD, though $35.99 seems a bit much for only one of the two seasons.

As far as the new one goes, I'm hoping this leads to a new round of Pac-Merchandise... seems like a natural direction, given that Bandai Namco are the owners of the IP.

Above is the original post; the latest info, with a new clip, screens, and galleries of the toys can be seen here.

Isn't the price of the original Pac-Man season one cartoon that high because it's only available through Warner Archives?

Pac-Man's voice is a tad... grating. I grew up with the Hanna Barbara series, so I'm so used to seeing him as a middle class family man that suddeny "squeaky voiced kid" has taken me by surprise.

The show looks neat, though, and I like how they're incorporating all the abstract concepts of the arcade game into a semi-coherent universe.

And was that Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde at the end?

Anyway, I'll give it a shot.

I mean, no matter what way you cut it, it's still a show based on a game from the infancy of the industry.

It's some manner of incredible challenge to make it any good while still incorporating everything that it is.

Yes, but it also means no Ms. Pac-Man and no Pac-Baby.

The show from the 80s wasn't great, but it was a pretty original take on what amounts to a game based on a guy eating pills at a rave.

Maybe that will come later on in the show... and she can actually be MS. Pac-Man, instead of his wife, Pepper.

As for the voice, it's grown on me. But yeah, it caught me off-guard as well. Still, I think it will help appeal to kids, which is what the franchise really needs right now, in my opinion.

And yes, those are the ghosts in there, though I think I heard somewhere (mind, this was over a year ago) that they're his friends? Could make for an interesting tale...

If you want a better look at the designs, here they are in one of the games.

I like this idea. I think I'll go with this.

...incidentally, I think a teaser trailer is probably not the best thing to gauge voice acting by, but it seemed alright to me for what it was.

I remember seeing this video quite a while ago. I predicted then that the purple pac-girl with the buckled boots was the daughter of the evil ghost overlord with his buckled gloves. She has a kind of goth quality about her, and he's a ghost. Yeah, I think there'll be some plot twist about that. And could they not make a non-3D trailer available? The fact that this blurry thing is still all we have to go on is just sad.

Digging some of those toys, and there's a new clip. Also, it appears that Ian Corlett is Blinky and Sir Cumference.

Well, it is a reboot of sorts. I don't know if they have a specific thing set up for the blinking or not, though we saw some of that in the first clip, if I remember right.

I think the glowing might be saved more for the possessions and zappings; Pac is still eating berry-pellets to go after them, though.

Actually, this "style" is intentional, it's gotten popular in a lot of CGI animation shows recently, specifically the cheaper, cartoony ones. It's an attempt to imitate older cartoons but it can be a bit weird and erratic if you're not used to it.

Hooo boy. I guess I'll reserve judgment until I can see a full episode, but it's just hard to watch even a 5 minute clip. Maybe once I see the 4 original ghosts in action, I'll enjoy it more.
