On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

GTA V just barely manages to run on my laptop's integrated graphics.

 

Feel like if I go into the config files and mess with them, could probably get it to run better since I did nothing to the default graphics settings (defaulted to full-screen 720p for me)

 

Anyway's damn game is nearly 100 hugging gigabytes.

I'm weighing that question a bit, I'm honestly not sure. The Ropalolyst has a lot of ways of killing you, a lot of ways of punishing you for using your abilities, and a bossfight room that will shut you down if you try to do anything that isn't the prescribed steps on the instruction sheet. You need to know the sequence and which buttons not to hit before going in, and you will be periodically cheesed regardless. If you're in a full public squad, it's probably not going to be difficult to get through per se, but it's still ... probably the most annoying boss in the game IMO, in terms of just, like, prevalence of gameplay elements that are themselves annoying. It's mostly in things like the Ropalolyst's ability to instantly shut down all of your abilities for a while if you try to use operator mode to recharge or heal or whatever, and the map denying most or all frames' and the operator's flight abilities to make you walk on the wires, etc. If you step out of the prescribed cycle, you're punished. Singlularly unpleasant boss design.

 

It doesn't heal, though. There's that much. You don't find yourself ten minutes in and back where you started. I can give it that much credit, that that is a frustrating mechanic that it does not employ. And like other boss farms, you're guaranteed part drop each time, so you're really only going to be running it between three and seven or eight times to get the full set, and you're not completely at the mercy of RNGsus like you are for Gauss or Khora. 

 

So like ... it's short I guess? Comparable to farming Saryn at Kela?

Once you get to the boss room, the only real platforming challenge is just jumping out onto those wires and getting across to the generator dealios. I guess there's the brief bit of platforming after the boss to get to the extraction point, but there's naturally no pressure at that point. Aside from getting out to the generators, you're mostly staying on the central platform except when you're flying the Ropalolyst. 

 

In terms of platforming on the way to the boss fight, I think it's pretty much just the usual amount for any of the new Jupiter maps, and although it's been a long time since I've used the operator void dash without the Zenurik and Naramon passives unlocked, I imagine it should help you cheese through at least some of it.

Very small Warframe thing, but something I somehow never noticed that just made Nova a bit more badass: I just noticed in today's sortie that it's possible to pump Antimatter Drop (which absorbs damage and deals it back at the end as an AoE blast) with melee attacks, which consists of dropping it in between swings while walking into a crowd and losing basically none of the damage dealing in the interim and getting the explosion for "free". So that is ... significantly better than taking time shooting at it, and looks to all the world like I'm just periodically exploding. I thought the biggest limitation on the ability was how slowly the sphere moved, but for melee application that's what makes it work. = ]

If it was anyone other than Bethesda who did this, it wouldn't feel like they deliberately sabotaged the game because everyone was praising it.

I'm not saying that people can't remove it, but considering that it needs to be installed to play online, IDK surely it would detect that the software isn't there and refuse to go online.

If they did - cool.

 

If they didn't, my condolences, should've gotten the PS4 version.

Bigass swords in Warframe are so much more fun than I was expecting. Got Gram Prime and have had a blast smashing everything XD

Of course, I've modded it around speed over raw damage.

Burston Prime is cooking and we'll see how it goes. Not super fond of burst fire rifles, but the Dex Sybaris kind of turned. E around a little bit on it, in that I can actually hit and kill things with it.

Helps of course that Warframe on switch runs so much better than it used to. Also turning off aim assist really helps.
