Oh my god! WFC ravage is adorable! Who's a pudgy kitty? Yes you are!

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 November 2020 - 09:50 AM)

The 86 line prevented made me reconsider a new years resolution.

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

"I'll just get one" I said now I have almost twenty Studio Series figures.

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 November 2020 - 11:45 PM)

that's eight words

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 November 2020 - 03:42 AM)

Aw no unusual activity on my Paypal Ebay, Amazon and Netflix account in one day! All I have to do it verify on those E-Mails and I'm all set..... wait a mo, I'm not on Netflix!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

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.

 

(Granted, no one plays Doom Eternal online lmao)

Did they fix the myriad of issues in the Switch version yet?

 

If they did - cool.

 

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

The Switch version ran really terribly when it came out.

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.

Yeah, I remember not expecting much from heavy blades either, and then really enjoying the Parcesis with the Tempo Royale stance. I should get a Gram Prime sometime, as the Paracesis is just a worse version with spoilers.
