It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Locoman : (18 July 2019 - 05:11 PM)

isn't that just Modern Family

@  Sabrblade : (18 July 2019 - 12:10 PM)

All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

You guys aren't being very nice. You're supposed to tell me I did "good, really good!"

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

RideBack was a great little anime about mecha bike racing with an uncommon (among mecha shows) protagonist, and I loved that her background in ballet influenced how she piloted the mech.

 

Then terrorism happened.

Hmm...

 

No interest in Enthusiast as a concept. Pass.

 

RS Project's mecha design is everything I dislike about modern mecha design. Pass.

 

Same goes for Dead End Sparks. Pass.

 

Dean Drive looks okay. Thumb in the middle.

 

Same rating for Star Storks.

 

Nothing wows me enough to get me to vote, though. Oh well.

Enthusiast - Overweight, headless Autobots with seats in their necks... I don't care about the story, it already sucks.

You've made Diaclone Ironhide sad.

 

He can't express it, because he has no face, but you've made him sad.

I really like the premise of Star Storks even if the mecha design really isn't my cup of tea, I'd be up for watching it. It really helps that it's about intelligent mecha and not just the guy in the suit, too. Robots are way cooler than plain mecha, that's for sure.

 

I hope that wins over the others, which all seem like slight variations of the kind of anime I don't bother with in the first place. Well, aside from the Sports McCarSafety one. That's just dumb looking.

Admittedly, all I'd possibly want from it is Different RideBack or Anime Kinetica, which are very bad reasons to like a project.

star storks seems to have an actual premise. The other shows feel too much like copies of things other people has already done. but I guess it's already been noticed by others here.

Man, lots of badly integrated CGI in those trailers.  At least run 'em at the same frame rate as the cel animation, geez.  

 

"Enthusiast!" sounded interesting right up until I saw it and the frankly astounding lack of animation compared to all the other series showcased, and the just plain lackluster robot designs.  It could have been so much better.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

The car one is IGPX Intial D and Rideback rolled into one pass

 

RS and Dead Sparks are similar in tone and easy pass

 

Dean Drive might be a fun watch

 

Space Storks has a great name an initnal hook but does not seem very intresting in the long run

 

 

Can I just get another season of Burst Angel with Jango and Jo?
