Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

If they want the hardware power and attractiveness to third-party developers, they're going to have to dump the GameCube-based architecture, with its PowerPC processor and all that, that Nintendo have used the last three generation. However, that would rule out backwards compatibility, and to be honest, I don't think Nintendo can be all that bothered to wonder outside their comfort zone.

I know you're presenting this as a bad thing, but I think backwards compatibility is something that we as consumers should be expecting in this day and age.
Oh, believe me, I really like backwards compatibility, and basically it's a very important feature for me (I still have a launch-model PS3, for example). It's just that I don't see how the NX can incorporate it without sticking to dead-end PowerPC processors, unfortunately.

Anyway, my various NX predictions in order of pessimism:
1. It'll be a Nintendo-branded, ARM-based Android tablet with a built in Amiibo reader. That also connects to televisions.
2. It's actually Quality of Life, some health/lifestyle device rather than a traditional console.
3. It'll be an overlocked Wii U with more RAM, in a different case, with a different gimmick based controller which has a massmarket appeal. (What the Wii was to the GameCube, basically.)
4. It's a competitive console to take on the PS4 and Xbone, but with a jawdropping unexpected twist.
5. It'll be a UFO-shaped decive which hovers over your head while projecting 4K holograms onto special Nintendo wallpaper for your living room.

Uh... I still don't want to use a touch screen to play games.
 
Don't get me wrong, it was innovative, wildly successful, and offered a wide range of "never before conceived" control schemes and methods which let nintendo do stuff that changed how we interfaced with our devices.
 
You still have to touch the screen you use. We were smack in the middle of an age of germaphobia before: and now everyone knows that no matter how hard you try, your hands are never, EVER clean.

I'm honestly confused. In terms of worry about germs, how is a touchscreen worse than buttons, a d-pad, and a joystick? You have to touch those, too.

I will say, though, that while the DS was a great system, some titles did suffer from having touchscreen control be required, rather than optional. For instance, I love Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. It's an A+, 10/10 title, and very possibly my favorite entry in the whole Castlevania series. Still, the touchscreen-based "magic seal" system you had to use every time you defeated a boss was an enormous pain in the ass. Even worse were the DS Legend of Zelda games. I tried hard to like them, but I couldn't get past my dislike for the mandatory touchscreen controls, and I couldn't (and still don't) understand why they didn't have an option for traditional controls. I think the best examples of highly integrated touchscreen control were games that simply wouldn't have worked without it. Metroid Prime: Hunters, with it's touchscreen-based aiming, is one, as are the Etrian Odyssey games with their focus on mapping.

Honestly backwards compatibility just limits consoles. I'd be perfectly happy without it.

My impression was that the PlayStation 2 and the original DS are, so far, the two most successful dedicated gaming systems of all time, and they're both backwards-compatible with their predecessors. How were they limited by their backwards-compatibility?

Cause no matter how many times you wash your hands, or use sanitizer, or just refuse to touch anything else at all... you will ALWAYS leave greasy smears of finger prints on your touch screens.

I'm not talking about sales. I'm talking about hardware. It sometimes limits the hardware.

 

You have to retain the old hardware to properly be backwards compatible or else you have to rely on software to do it like XBox. Then you only have a select few titles that work. As Anonymous X said, Nintendo really needs to ditch the Power PC stuff sometime.

But it's a toooouuuucccchhh screeeennn.

 

Kidding. I've just yet to find a stylus that actually works as well as a finger. And I find the entire concept of using the same screen you look through as your input to be incredibly silly.

Hasn't Nintendo already confirmed the NX and their QoL device are different things.

I pretty much expect the NX to be like the DS. It was an alternate to the GBA at the time. An experiment. If the NX works then it will become the main console.

All I'll say about the NX is if it's region-locked, I will not buy it nor any other Nintendo hardware again.

 

And if it's not region-locked but NoA continues their shenanigans with not releasing games here, then I will only import games from Europe. I don't care if it will cost more money, I will not give NoA a single cent until they shape up.

Probably not affect it at all since those wheels are in motion. 

 

The only way it would affect it is if everyone under Iwata was against the NX. Then they could just halt the whole project and go another direction.

Now that Nintendo lost the ZombiU exclusivity I DEMAND they fund Dead Space 4! I don't care if it's exclusive to Nintendo platforms like say NX I've got to know how it ends! and since EA got carried away with co-op nonsense and that Call of Duty crap, we can trust Nintendo to keep the series on the right track.

It doesn't work that way.

 

The only way Nintendo would have 100% control over it is if it was a first party license. If they paid for Dead Space, EA would be the one designing it.

Dedicated single player games are already getting rare. Most triple A titles come with either a focus on multiplayer (and thus a seriously gimped single player campaign.) or the company just shoots straight for the rather lucrative MMO market.

 

Course, there are a lot of game makers other than the big name dev studios... even I am sitting here waiting for my birthday to pre-order fallout 4.
