They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

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)

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

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)

I figured we could use an Amiibo centric thread since we'll soon be branching over more than a few games and they aren't tied to one particular system.

 

So who has got their favorites picked out so far?

 

I just got Shiek (got lucky and found her hiding away from the rest of the Amiibos at the local Walmart ) and even though she's only about lv.17 shes already giving me a run for my money. So far I've been trying to balance her out more than the rest of them Stat-wise. With most of mine I've been focusing on Attack and Speed power. But now that I have an overabundance of Defensive badges and such I figured I'd at least try to keep her balanced and man she seems to keep me on my toes. Of course giving her a Crouch-Healing badge may have helped her.

 

On another note how bad have we all gotten addicted so far? I've gotten 14 so far, with another two preordered.

Fortunately, I've managed to rein myself in from spending too much on these things (I'm already spending quite a bit much on Transformers and some other collectibles, anyway :p). The three I have so far are Samus ('Artemis', my first and highest-leveled), Luigi ('Hades') and Shulk ('Apollo'), with Sonic and Mega Man reserved at Gamestop.

 

Man, they really need to add an amiibo option on the online modes for people to be able to pit these against each other. Maybe even do something like have the player fighting alongside one or two of his amiibo against another player's team. :thumbsup

Oh, Amiibo, Amiibo, Amiibo.

 

I only have Kirby, Villager (who I lucked out on on release day before the insanity happened) and Toon Link.

 

I really want Captain Falcon but Scalpers took care of him. I also want Mega Man who, I don't know.

 

Nintendo should really look into upping production on the scalped Amiibos. When I first heard of them, I thought they would be replenished regularly like Disney Infinity does. But goddamn, have they dropped the ball.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I still need Captain Falcon, Pitt and Little Mac from Wave 2 and Rosalina Shulk and King Dedede from wave 3. I hope Nintendo UK restock them again soon as I'm having far to may gaps in my collection and sooner or later I'll just give up collecting Amiibo entirely.

I'm hard to buy gifts for, so I made the mistake of putting Amiibos on my Amazon Wishlist so that family could buy them for me for Christmas. Unfortunately my family sucks, and now I'm freaking out trying to find Fox and Captain Falcon at a reasonable price - reasonable for me being less than double retail.


Yep.

Well Pac is slated for the Spring Wave. At Walmart is seems some must be shelfwarming pretty bad since I saw them Rollingback DK and Yoshi.

 

Might as well list all mine. I have Samus, Fox, Pikachu, Mario, Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Pit, Kirby, Link, Toon Link, Zelda, and Shiek. Mega Man and Sonic are preordered at Gamestop but now I'm wondering if I'll ever get them.

I've let all my worst collecting tendencies take over with these things. I have all of them except Rosalina and Meta Knight. I never saw an option to preorder either of them, and at least Rosalina was naturally sold out immediately. I'm assuming the same is true for Meta Knight.

 

I kinda regret getting lucky and finding Villager stuffed in a bin under a bunch of others at one of the local TRUs. I'd already had Marth from the release day, and WFTs were still fairly easy to find at the time. Finding him made being a completionist possible, and I'd seen too much to resist the urge at that point. Between these, Skylanders, and Combiner Wars, my wallet's crushed this year.

I just grabbed a Link and a Mario because I only have the 3DS Smash Bros so far.  I'd like a Megaman but not so much I need to care too hard about it.

 

I got a Captain Falcon for a friend a couple of weeks ago.  TRU employee came over and asked if I'd like a rare one.  I didn't know these things were such a big deal at the time, didn't care about them, got it anyway, then gave it away.  You can all feel free to hate me for that now.  :D

I'll list the ones I don't have. That'll be shorter.

 

Marth, Villager*, Rosalina, Meta Knight, Lucardio, Dedede and Sonic, Mega Man and Ike are Pre-order and I'm just waiting for them to arrive. Toad is paid and will be shipped to me in March. Hoping they'll make a Daisy for Mario Party 10.

 

*More upset about him than anyone else. He was one of my "GETS" but I passed on him a few times because if I got him I couldn't get Marth or WFT if I saw them.

I bought Marth and Wii Fit Trainer on day one, without any pre-orders. I just thought they were cool.

What has happened since then has been incredibly discouraging. I don't want to bother with hunting for the characters I like. I might just import a few figures to avoid supporting the local scalping market.

I want MegaMan badly. However due to all the nonsense with these things I'm not sure if I'll get him.

 

I wanted Marth as well but well...

 

It's really annoying. Not only are they hard as hell to find, but they are 13 bucks a pop. I didn't get into Skylanders or Disney Infinity, so I don't know the general prices for these, but I believe they shouldn't be more then 6.99 if that.

 

Right now I have none of them, but I'm aiming to get at least Link with a gamestop cupon I have so I can use said Link to unlock a weapon in Hyrule Warriors.

Considering they are marketing this worldwide, they could have come up with an easier to pronounce and less silly name than "Amiiboo". It sounds like, well... Hibbety-hoo or Hullaballoo.

"Musty prawns, and Timbucktu! Yeltsy-by, and hibbety-hoo! Kick 'em in the dishpan! Hoo hoo hoo!!  :D (hope you get the reference)

Much like with Skylanders I'd only be interested in this for the figures, since I don't own consoles. Will most likely get Starfox if they discount the figures, for the simple reason that well, this is the first ever Starfox figure, unless you count the bobble-head.
