Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

I just don't know how it can work, sorry. I might be proven wrong, I hope I'm proven wrong, but I can't see it right now.

Unconfirmed report of writer hiring to doomsaying about how it won't matter: elapsed time, five posts.
 
They really should just auto-merge every Movie thread with the Movie Prime Unheroic thread.


Patronising eye rolling towards those who highlight the key production flaw in what has been the most mainstream dominant part of the franchise for nearly a decade.

They really should just lock these threads or people will express they have standards.

Locking the thread would prevent anyone from putting a gun to your head and forcing you to participate in discussions that you aren't interested in.

Movie verse is a franchise? Ha, what if they're trying to pull an Avengers. New movie with Rodimus on Cybertron then Primal on a primitive world (Primacron?) and each movie ends with the leader flying off into space like AoE. Meeting together to battle Unicron.

I've read Invincible, Walking Dead, Astounding Wolfman, the Power Ring dead gay guy from Marvel, that Destroyer mini from Marvel, Irredeemable Ant-Man. Kirkman has really good stories. Just don't like his general execution and dialogue.

Losing so many major characters is honestly one of the best things about the Movieverse as-is. Lockdown was a breath of fresh air. Let's see some more reinterpretations of characters beyond G1, or movie-verse original characters.  There's so many characters in this franchise waiting for a chance to shine. Since the movies tend to influence newer series, it'd be great if it meant likewise for animation from now on. Steeljaw being the lead Decepticon in RiD is great.

Kirkman's name doesn't provide much or any hope that the movies will become more enjoyable. Or more intelligently written.

That might come off a bit mean, but after several years of Invincible, Walking dead and his other smaller books, I don't have much faith in him as a writer.

I'd mostly argue the opposite. The movies are locked into a trend where we get an intimidating villain who by the end of the movie is graphically ripped apart. Even Megatron falls under this but keeps cheating death, despite the films doing little with really exploring the relationship between him and Optimus. Compare him coming back in the latest movie to the likes of IDW who are actually exploring how Megatron loses faith in his own banner.

 

I'd welcome more characters sticking around and not just vanishing because they died or vanished because Bay didn't care/new toy assortments for latest movie. Especially with a villain I'd argue sticking around longer actually makes them more of a threat. Lockdown could easily have stayed on and been the agent of the Creators as we build up to them appearing.

The movies have generally used a combination of historically major characters (Optimus Prime, Bumblebee), semi-major characters (memorable for one or two series rather than franchise-wide, such as Lockdown or Drift), and characters essentially invented from whole cloth and assigned some trademarked name (Barricade, Crosshairs). I don't think they've killed off nearly enough of the first group to make this approach stop being viable.

I'm pretty excited about this pool of writers.  Not all of them are super awesome amazing, no. But their backgrounds are varied and they do have some experience.  At this point, just injecting some new, fresh, interesting ideas in this universe will be more than welcome.  Especially with Bay not directing, it's possible to take what, really, could be an interesting universe and actually try and make it, well, interesting.

 

I said elsewhere, but now when I see these movies, it won't be out of pleasant obligation, but might actually be out of legitimate want!  :D

Any writer with a semblance of what a "character" or a "story arch" is, is by no means an unwelcomed thing.

4 movies deep and the movieverse could still be strung together in a meaningful way if somebody bothered to care enough.

This. It's the elephant in the room. If someone keeps punching you, you don't expect a hug the next time.

 

I appreciate the pro-movie fans are tired of hearing this but people have valid reasons for why they feel so negative towards this arm of the franchise and why they don't expect it to get better. If it does, the dissapointed will surely be the first to celebrate. But there's no need to make out like all we're doing is being negative with no reason. Further to that, the 'if you dislike, just avoid all threads about it' argument only cuts it so far. Are the pro-movie fans constantly staying out of threads about the toys, shows and comics they personally dislike? I very much doubt that. Having constructive negative criticism is a valid response and trying to throw strawmen at people of a different opinion doesn't help foster the measured dialogue you claim to want to have.

Having constructive negative criticism is a valid response and trying to throw strawmen at people of a different opinion doesn't help foster the measured dialogue you claim to want to have.

 

 

You can expect a hug after being punched if you're a battered wife. Or an abused child. Or (bottom line), have a vested interest in what/who has been punching you to want a hug from them. In this case, unfortunately, this is all of us. No, I am not equating being a TF fan to being an abused spouse or child. But man, oh man, are there hilarious similarities. 

 

But, being one or more of the aforementioned myself, comparably, I don't have a vested interest in Transformers of all things. They are play things. They entertain me, and I am only vested so far as they remain entertaining. If they cease to be entertaining, I will cease being vested. Like when RiD was around. Or the Unicron Trilogy. The toys (some of them) interested me, so I got a few. But the shows? Stupid as all hell, I only watched one or two episodes to get an idea and I've never watched any of those episodes all the way through in any of those series ever again, nor would I ever want to. Yup, I'm equating Bay-verse with UT. Suuuuck iiitttt. :p

 

Now, do I want it to get better? Of course! Who doesn't want better entertainment? The optimistic opportunist in me always wants a better option. So I keep up with everything. And waited. And waited. AND WAITED....... didn't happen. So I gave up, because I'm not insane (ah yes, that is what Einstein said). :) But hell, maybe I'm insane too, because I know I'll not expect to like it, but I will expect to get a lot of the toys, see it in theatres, and buy the DVD/Blu-Ray to have in case I do want to watch it again one day far off, and for completion's sake.  I bought AoE, sure as Sunday, but I haven't even opened it. Might not ever plan to. But no, I'm not going to delude myself to thinking it's BEST WURK EHVUHR!

 

What tops the cake? I used to be pro-movie. Yeah. The Prime show and MTMTE changed all that. And yup, I realized Prime was pretty much the Movie Trilogy fully realized and almost solely from the writers' perspective, unencumbered by Bay's facile understanding of what makes TFs tick and his puerile sense of humor, and MTMTE is pretty much Star Trek, but with robots. Nevertheless, after seeing Prime, I saw the parallels of what Kurtzman and Orci were trying to accomplish for the movies, and how it was jive all over by Bay, but how it played out masterfully in the show. They tried to do this in the movies, failed, and inadvertently succeeded by doing the show, which opened my eyes to how good TFs can be, WITHOUT Bay. I then saw his limits. Now, I can never go back.

 

Side note, I'm not surprised those two failed at realizing that in the movies though, because what makes TFs tick (at least for me) has always been the toys first, and the TV show second. But going up against Hollywood to do that is hard, if not impossible, without compromise, sometimes utter compromise, except the bare minimum of what you tried to do, and in this case it was: make a Transformers movie. They definitely made one. Unfortunately it was nowhere near where they wanted it to be, if you compare Movieverse with Prime side-by-side.

 

Reminds me of the typical story of the small-town pretty girl going to Hollywood to be famous, only to wind up in the occupation of PO-- uring drinks for people at Starbucks. What? What did you think I was going to say? ;)

Maybe a new writer can fix the movies. Maybe it won't. Maybe it'll make it worse somehow. You know what definitely won't accomplish anything? The same bitching, whining and RUINED FOREVERing that pop up in every movie thread and used to be criticism the first dozen or so times they were posted. Sure, the movies have a lot to criticize and there are a lot of valid criticisms to be made but if you think that Michael Bay and co. are sitting at their laptops reading this forum, you're going to be sorely disappointed.

 

Is it really that hard to grasp that the same couple of condemnations posted over and over by the same people is basically nothing but rants and tirades for readers who are in no position to do anything about the franchise (which is all of them)? Is it really criticism when the people involved haven't done anything to criticize yet? It's not about being pro or anti movie. It's about having your say once or twice and then moving on. And a little bit people getting tired of the people who don't, I guess. Just as you can get tired of three-hour long movies with more explosions than substance, people can get tired of posts deriding said three-hour movies. 

 

And yes, it is possible for people to avoid forums they have no interest in. I haven't entered the comic forum in close to half a year now aside from tablet misclicks and I've never been happier. 

 

Nah, best to just resume your bickering and whining.

What? What did you think I was going to say? ;)

Well, I was hoping for something that wouldn't make my skin crawl.

It's been a disappointing morning.

You're talking to ▲ndrusi. Assume everything that he posts is snark.
