He who doesn't like pie are destined to become the contents of pie.

Transfer Uplinks look cool but in the wrong hands could be OP. Hmmm Just a funny thought what if Mainframe from G1 had a TU? He could make about anything period. Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

As an UK expat, I have to say I miss the actual thrill of hunting in stores as frustrating as it was when distribution was bad. I feel spoiled for choice in America in comparison lol.

Or canadian stores, or australian stores, or german stores...

@  Bass X0 : (27 May 2016 - 02:14 PM)

at least you got the exercise. i ordered all of them online. there's no point in being a serious collector if someone is only going to rely on using UK stores.

The one I go to gives me a discount on each issue's cover price. I still have to go there to pick up my comics but I'm sure I'll never miss any of them

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@  Scavgraphics : (27 May 2016 - 04:21 AM)

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

does anyone know who did the "animation" for the 1960s batman show? been wondering for years and i cant find an answer anywhere. looks to me like either jack kirby or john romita

I'm in the middle of Ico HD Remix.

I'll have to get over how horrid the camera is in Xenoblade, though. Last time I played it I got seasick while going through sub quests and swinging the camera around. Uck.

I've picked this up mainly because I'm afraid of availability. It was nearly a miracle it came over to the US at all. It's only available at GameStop or online. Not too many copies were probably made...

It's a game I'm interested in playing though, so I have a copy. The Art book was a nice bonus I didn't even know about.

Played only a little of it to test it out. Then decided to hold off till I got a Wii Classic Controller. (which I now have)

Still I need to beat Tales of Graces F before I move on to another RPG.

It's a secret to everybody

Huh, I didn't even know you could use the classic controller. I've gotten so comfortable using the wiimote/nunchuck, though, I can't imagine shifting over now.

Interesting little article on the whole "It should have been on a HD system" argument.

I'm not saying the article is right, wrong.. or even correct.. But it is an interesting read and may have some points.

Just started really playing. Wow.. First few levels when you have two or three skills, you think... "Oh wow.. combat is slow." heheheh.. "Guess I was wrong on that. Also the number of quests is mind boggling!

Yeah, if you've got any form of quest OCD, you won't have any problem with levels as the game proceeds. If anything it might start feeling too easy.

RISE FROM THE DEAD. Sorry, did a search for the appropriate thread rather than make a new one. This has recently hit my radar and I'm debating picking up a copy since my local Gamestop still has some.

I'm hearing a LOT of positive things, but trust the gamers here more than what gets said at a gaming review site. Is this something I should invest $50 into?

I say go for it... as a Matter of Fact I need to see what it looks like on a Wii U


And this game in many cases is arguably as good looking as the HD counterparts.

And don't let the combat system fool you at first. At first it may seem slow.. but soon it's very fast paced.

It's a great game, but if you have quest-completion OCD this game will drive you crazy and take forever to play. I end up playing it for days on end and then take months-long breaks before going back. I still haven't finished it icon-ball.gif

It's not perfect, but it's darn near close. I adore the voicework, and I love any game that actually changes the character's appearance when you change their armor.
Really my only complaint is with the quest system. I don't like how it loads you up with so many "kill x amount of x monster" quests, and it's almost impossible to find specific NPCs when you need to. It will tell you their schedule and general location, but you're on your own after that.


Oh, and the music is generally GREAT. I love the daytime theme on the leg plains.

I would say definitely pick up this game, with a caveat if you're OCD about completing everything this game has to offer. While the game excels in the most part in making it easy to find even the rarest items, it can still become maddeningly hard to find certain items, which could leave you hanging to complete the game's biggest sidequest. (A situation I am sadly in, and contemplating restarting over)

While the game does give you a lot of the 'find/kill so many of x' quests, keeping up on them along with all the other sidequests to a reasonable degree is a good way to assure you stay at an acceptable level for the game.

It took a little getting used to, but I do like the combat system. It's very similar to FFXII, but minus the complex gambits and with a little more control and a few other tweaks I won't go into due to possible spoilers icon-hotrod.gif

But that aside, this is still a fantastic RPG that deserves playing if you are even a casual fan of the genre

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

20 hours in, just out of the mines, game is amazing.

Also, would you think it's worth it to buy a second, sealed copy for collector's purposes? I know the games value on the secondary market is already remarkably high.

It's not online through Nintendo or Gamestop anymore, but brick & mortar Gamestops may still have some copies. That's how I got mine.
