Does that hold true for the accent of any British Allsparkers here?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 August 2019 - 01:56 AM)

I was reading some GoBots + Transformers discussion on Twitter and saw a British user point out that "BuggyMan" can sound like "boogeyman".

@Sabrblade Part of me wishes I had purchased the coffee cup with that comic when it was for sale.  The rest of me knows I didn't have the money for it. XD

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 August 2019 - 07:42 PM)

Runner-up dumb idea: A Bizarro-like clone of Hot Rod named Not Rod.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 August 2019 - 06:25 PM)

One of the dumbest TF ideas I ever had: Hot Rod (by whatever means) produces a son, who is named "Go-Cart".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 04:10 AM)

Let me call on my friend Dr Rockso, the Rock 'n Roll Clown. (He does cocaine.)

@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 August 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Babylon 5 must come to Blu Ray.

@  MEDdMI : (19 August 2019 - 07:28 AM)

Even in the winter, he has to clear the roads of snow.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2019 - 03:46 AM)

His work is never done.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2019 - 03:06 AM)

Everyone quickly gets sick of flubbing the name and collectively agree to just call the combiner "Roadworks"

@  Sabrblade : (18 August 2019 - 09:34 PM)

For some reason, I've always wanted to see a "Menastator", all five Stunticons and all six Constructicons in an 11-piece combiner.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

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.
