Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

No idea.

In other news, getting "Army of Me" on a Thug/Dark MM? When 4 of the clones use "Gang War" upon spawning? That was "interesting" to say the least.

Yeah only thing was that *I* was the one being dog-piled on. "Army of Me" is when you take on 8 of your clones all at once in Leonard's story arc, redside. So if you're a Thug MM with all 6 pets and Gang War, then you're facing 8 Thug MMs. With all of their 6 pets. All capable of calling a gang war on you. So that's 8 NPCs, 48 pets with the possibility of a buttload of pets all attacking you.

I am kind of amused by the idea that a city is attacked by so many monsters that there's an alert system for supernatural activity.

That was a "Quality Of Life" feature added a few years ago. People would literally camp at the three locations for the Paladin in Kings Row for hours awaiting its appearance. Or, you would never notice the Ghost Ship gliding along in Independence Port because the zone is so huge.

I think it works, though. As a hero, you'd be tuned into such things. Think of it as you just happen across it while listening to your scanner.

And, if you don't like it, you can suppress those messages. It is part of the options you can set to not see them.

Of course, now I'm thinking of the days when you could "train" the Ghost Ship and have it follow you around the zone like a pet. You could have it follow you up to the hill in Talos and it would just sit there. Ahh, the days when there were so many "features" in CoH. icon-hotrod.gif

I would go onto the City of Heroes website and download the Freedom Client directly from them, because my guess is Freedom has totally changed the pathways of the old game. You can likely still use your CoV Serial Number to get a free month of VIP, though.

You should see Power Paladin's inverted version.

All it does is swap the colors for each item. So, if your "helmet detail 1" has Yellow/Black, your inverted version's helmet detail 1 becomes Black/Yellow.

Definitely visit www.plaync.com and find your way to the game client, then download from there. It completely changed a few months ago. Much to my annoyance. I used to be able to just click an icon and start CoH without all the nagging "Accept" and such. They got wise and force you to use their "console" to launch the game, now. (And moved the agreement to be after you log in).

How about getting the "Master of Olympus" badge? Yeah, I'd say that was a good feeling.


It feels good to finally have a character at the cap. For one thing, it means I can really indulge my altaholism without worry. Though I probably should work on getting a Red to 50 too.

And I managed to get up to level 5 before board maintenance, doing nothing but beating up devil-worshiping hoods.

So yeah, if you se a chick in all-black with maroon beltstraps and spikes... that's me.

I remember when Raptor Scribe hit 50. It was literally as we took down the Olympian Guard in the last part of the Maria Jenkins storyarc.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

By the way, there's a little magnifying glass next to the name box during creation. You can use that to check if a name is taken before you finish everything else.
