We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

You can detect Sombra at 4 meters instead of 2. But I dont know how far that actually is in the game. But you'll be an ultimate assassin like that. I wonder if I will still be able to sneak past doors with someone standing there...

Reinhardt's swing range is 5m, so slightly within that.  You definitely won't be able to slip through an occupied doorway without being detected.

Mind you, those are all 'bots that Hammond here is pulverizing.  The bot AI isn't at all equipped to deal with Wrecking Ball right now.  They just kinda gravitate towards his grapple point and stand there, not even bothering to shoot at him.  This kinda strategy won't (or I should say, shouldn't) work on human players.  Hammonds who just try to do this sort of thing all game are going to be chew toys.  Mei especially seems to straight-up hardcounter these sorts of shenanigans, and be pretty decent against the hamster in general, and with the buff that she's getting in this patch (Sniper Mei back in the house), we might wind up seeing her a bit more often as well.

Oh, yeah, I didn't mean to imply that this technique would be effective against human opponents... I just think it's amazing that it's even a thing he can do. And it looks like fun!

It does at least seem like it can be a semi-effective way to stall and zone a point against 1-2 opponents (depending on who, mind you.  Again, if Mei or Reaper, you're probably better off just giving up and escaping), if you're stuck holding the fort while your team is on respawn.  You can fling yourself to safety at any point, or suddenly detach and divebomb an unsuspecting squishy while throwing up your shields to save your ass.

 

 

The Hammond tactics I'm most going to keep an eye on are all his momentum slings up and over walls and cliffs that traditionally only Pharahs, Junkrats, or Winstons would employ.  Junkrat and Pharah up over a "safe" wall can be problematic, but they're squishy and thus solvable quickly if you've got your wits about you.  Winston over a wall is tougher, but not a particularly large threat by his lonesome, and thus is either suicidal or is a precursor to a full team push from some other angle and he's just the distraction.  Hammond on the other hand drops over the wall with a cushy potential 1300HP (disregarding potential buffs from his teammates) while also tailing with him a contingent of devastating point-clearing mines.  I suppose he's fairly analogous to a D.Va flying in, nuke in tow, but he's much more disruptive, if not as instantly deadly.  The mines are a more persistent threat than a nuke and need to be dealt with accordingly, while the Wrecking Ball itself is a much more effective all-range fighter.

So, the first Overwatch Nerf Gun was announced: Hellfire Shotgun
 
I wonder how those are going to be labelled on store shelves?  They certainly won't be called Hellfire.
[edit]  Apparently "Reaper Wight Edition Blaster".
 
I'm actually pretty impressed that they're going for a "replica" look, instead of doing that generic-branded gun thing like they did for the Deadpool rifle and such.
 
I don't buy Nerf at all, but I might need two...

I haven't devoted a lot of time to him but I am not finding it easy to get the hang of the hamster. 

 

Very, very happy with my decision to start maining Moira after that Blackwatch event though. It's constantly raining gold medals, and best of all... I used to be terrified of Genji, regardless of who I was playing. But for Moira he just melts into a pile of bones.

Everything's coming up D.Va today:

 

First off, new short:

 

 

Busan map reveal (and currently on PTR):

 

Plus new Figma (no signs of MEKA yet):

https://twitter.com/...199616207306752

 

Figma announcement was obviously timed to coincide with the release of the short, since the figure comes with some accessories that debuted there.

I'd wait until next year.  Hasbro DOES have the rights for Overwatch merchandise beyond the Nerf Tie ins.  So I'm hoping for a toy line debut next Toy Fair.

 

I'm sure the news that Fortnite is getting various toy items may add a bit more incentive for Hasbro to get some Overwatch stuff out.

That's fair. However, for Figma prices you get Not Hasbro figures. I mean, I'm sure Hasbro's stuff will be okay. I'm keen to see how that all turns out.

And since this thread has been quiet for awhile, there's an exclusive "Omnic Bastion" set available on Blizzard's store already.
