I just read "Tesla Cybertruck" like AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", now it won't get out of my head, so I inflict it on all of you as well.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Tesla Cybertruck: amazing or just silly looking? I can't decide.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

I think the few up here were lost to bad placement, poor weather, and the usual language trap.

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 12:13 PM)

But yeah, reading it: I came off as a bit of an ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:52 AM)

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:36 AM)

Be a hoot if these Studio Series 86 toys led to Transformers The Move Reanimated like Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

@  Paladin : (20 October 2020 - 05:15 PM)

only takes three pounds to be a cereal killer.

@  Kalidor : (20 October 2020 - 04:54 PM)

5 pounds is a lot of cereal! /deadpan

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 October 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 11:31 PM)

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

@  wonko the sane? : (19 October 2020 - 08:26 PM)

Sounds like they need to clean more often.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 06:51 PM)

From the depths of Walmart's backroom comes...a Playstation Vita game in 2020?

So apparently Target is having all Amiibos on sale 25% off from March 29 through April 4. I think I'm going to try to pick up the Mario wave then. I really like some of those sculpts a lot better than the Smash versions, especially Luigi.

 

Recent rumor is Gamestop might not be doing preorders for Smash wave 4. My local TRU guy has said they'd be getting in preorder cards, but doesn't know when.  :burn

As far as I know, Mario is only available bundled with Mario Party 10. Even all the ads I've seen show just the other five for sale individually.

 

Although when you open up the MP10 box, it's just Mario in a standard Amiibo package with the game tucked in behind it. So I wouldn't be at all surprised if he does get sold on his own at some point. Either that, or they decided to sell him either bundled or individually depending on market.

Nintendo just posted that the normal Mario MP10 Amiibo will be available on April 3rd, So I guess he didn't roll out with the rest.

I used the same abbreviation one post above, but I still had to process that for a bit to understand you weren't talking about an Optimus Prime Amiibo.  :doh

 

Now I'm sad. That sounded too good. And yet terrifying to my wallet at the same time.

I found a lone Rosalina Amiibo in New Zealand a few months ago, and I've been carrying her around with me ever since. She's seen 3 countries already, with a few more to go before she gets to go meet her Amiibo siblings that are waiting for us to Smash with back home. I've got Mega Man, Peach, Zelda, Kirby, Pit, DK and Lucario waiting for me somehow. It's ridiculous how Amiibo and Combiner Wars have gotten their hooks in me even while I'm abroad.

So lots of Amiibo news unloaded today

 

SMASH BROS LINE

the next wave of Smash Amiibo which we've seen announced is due May.

 

Next wave is small with just Dark Pit and Palutena in July.

 

And in September we get Olimar, Dr. Mario, Zero Suit Samus, Gannondorf, and Bowser JR. 

Thus concludes Smash news

 

Now We seem to be getting a Splatoon Set with a Male and Female Characters and Squid. They seem to unlock new Customization Options

And now we get two new forms of Amiibo. With Yoshis Wooly World they are releasing 3 different colored Yoshi Yarn Plush Amiibos in Green, Pink and Blue.

 

Then we also get the Amiibo Cards that were rumored sometime back as Animal Crossing characters. I'm not sure the exacts but it seems a new Animal Crossing game for 3DS will be coming and be essentially decorating other characters homes for them. From the look of it the Cards will unlock new homes for you to decorate.

Crud your right Charaizard is yet to comein the next wave in May. Hadn't even thought of that. Supposedly Jigglypuff and Greninja got a Japanese release date soon.

 

Actually just checked the Amiibo site and Greninja and Jigglypuff are part of the next wave too. Was that always the case?

I really wish I could preorder the Splatoon Amiibos anywhere, since that appears to be the only way to get the popular ones these days...ugh nintendo, do multiple releases, PLZ!

 

 

I only wanted a handful of these guys to begin with, yet it's nearly impossible to get the fe that I want.

Glad I have no interest in Ness, or going completionist with these.

 

But I did end up getting my first taste of these. Toon Link, Sonic, Samus, and Mega Man.

Those are kind of my favorites from what's out so far. Can't see me picking up anymore for awhile unless I see the Wii Fit Trainer or something.

I'm now of the mind that if I find one I'll find one. Sat for over an hour in line, mind you in the 2nd spot, and half of that time was spent getting nowhere with the computer system. I want Charizard and Pac but not enough to waste a day over. Already irked they are pulling the character exclusive hug again with Greninja. Nintendo should of learned with the Gold Mario exclusivity. That wasn't a bad idea. Making certain normal characters tied to one store is moronic. Could of been timed exclusives and I wouldn't care so much but this is twice I've been hugged over a character I want because I'm nowhere near the stores they come in.

What cheeses me off most is that I was refreshing the amiibo page every 15 minutes and never saw Greninja. I did a search for greninja... and never found the page.


How the bloody heck was I supposed to pre-order it if I could never find the blasted page?
