Tired of the same old Halloween stuff? Check out Tubi. The depths of the schlock available is astounding.

@  Donocropolis : (27 October 2020 - 11:51 AM)

Not sure if it's news or not, but I'm at Ross right now and they have Masterpiece Movie Ironhide for $24.99

It's weird to see how much of Larry Hama's "satire" from the old GI Joe comic has no longer become satire in the past few years.

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 October 2020 - 11:29 AM)

Funny how 2020 gave me new appreciation for Dawn of the Dead 1978.

@Fenix Twilight Sure. Just not a good one.

@Sukoshiko Well his clothes left an impression on you didn't they?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 October 2020 - 06:09 AM)

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.

I'd love to see Star Wars Rogue Squadron and Battle for Naboo remastered for Switch, we've had Jedi Outcast and Episode One Racer as straight ports but those games with a visual spruce up would probably do well on it.

I'm not sure why that hasn't happened yet. Lucasarts aquired full rights to the codebase back in 2008 when Factor5 went under and they had a completed Wii port of all three Rogue Squadron games sitting unreleased even before that. Maybe Disney just doesn't like money.

Maybe disney is waiting for a strategic lull to start dropping ports to ensure a continued source of income.

 

Oh wait, no, never mind. We know they SUCK with their catalogue and unless it's brand spanking new, it doesn't get any attention.

Actually Im waiting to see it released alongside the release of Squadron for the other systems :D

And if they do port Rogue Squadron I do hope its a port of the 64 version and not the PC version. Every time I lock S-Foils on PC it starts getting wonky with the camera.

That's the unreleased Wii game.

It was only in development but notably used motion for vehicle sections and the Wii Motion Plus for lightsaber duels, something Star Wars games on the Wii didn't.

It reportedly had Rogue Squadron in the package but it's not known if it was updated to Gamecube/Wii standards.

Switch has the Joy Cons but lacks the IR pointer but some games have motion aiming.

I feel no need for the added lightsaber battling as thats not what I want in a Rogue Squadron game. Just like RS3 and the ground missions. I want to fly or drive some AT-STs, not recreate Lukes fights with Vader. And not sure about the speeder bikes. Ive never enjoyed dodging trees on Endor. The only game I think I have enjoyed the Speeder chase was on the Trilogy Arcade.....Which I will admit didnt bug me when we had the saber bonus levels. But that always was a rail shooter whether on ground or ship.

There's a Nintendo event tomorrow focussing on Paper Mario.  The more interesting news is a first look reveal from Wayforward (River City Girls, Shantae, Mummy Demastered, etc) focusing on a franchise "new to them".

 

God, my soul for Wayforward to be involved with a 2D Metroid or something...

Nintendo then tweeted it's a third party IP.. which makes it odd to be in a Paper Mario thing.

No I know that it, was Nintendo's hype of the game itself and being coy about a Bakugan game like it was damn trade secret

Yeah, it baffles me Nintendo went to the effort they did for a BAKUGAN game.  Even as a "Third Party title", Wayforward could have been working on a new Double Dragon, or a NES remaster like Ninja Gaiden or any number of retro-is projects that would have made more sense than promoting a Bakugan tie in.

 

God, 2020 continues to be a garbage year.  Transformers and GI Joe will probably be saddled with 3rd rate mobile developers for their console games, while friction' Bakugan is developed by Wayforward....

The performance verdict on Crysis on Switch.  Compromised, of course, but visual fidelity and implementation are better than last generation consoles.  Frame rate takes healthy hits on major action sequences, but generally runs okay.  Actually kind of reminds me of Feral's impressive Alien Isolation port where they managed to leverage the console's strengths to make a version BETTER than prior home ports of the game.

Hey, it's clearance season!  Time to do some price checking on the "non-assigned" discount games at Walmart and Target for deals!

 

Today I got the Shovel Knight Treasure Trove for $15 (marked as such) and Digimon Cyber Sleuth Complete for $21 (which was NOT marked as being on clearance).  I also saw Yooka Layla and the Impossible Lair for $15, Terraria for $21, FIFA 19 for $5 (saw 18 for $3 a couple weeks back), and there were several others.  I saw Final Fantasy X/X2 marked to $15 a couple weeks ago, but didn't get it (probably should have).

 

So, time to keep them peepers open, YMMV with Wally World.
