So who is voting for Apeface in the 1st round of March Mayhem? Just asking for curiosity's sake. There are no obscene bets among the staff riding on this....

@  Foffy : (18 March 2018 - 02:17 PM)

Especially with current graphics card and RAM prices.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 March 2018 - 10:29 AM)

I'm looking at building me a little budget windows machine for games and am looking at the new AMD Ryzen APUs

@  Benbot : (17 March 2018 - 08:10 PM)

ok, good, that should save me a couple bucks

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 March 2018 - 08:05 PM)

@Benbot Only if you REALLY need the computational power. For most average uses..probably not unless the price difference is small

@  Paladin : (17 March 2018 - 07:54 PM)

got lucky & found the Studio Series voyagers. Keeping Starscream but does anyone want Optimus? LMK.

@  Benbot : (17 March 2018 - 07:25 PM)

Is it worth spending extra for an i7 processor over the i5?

@  Plokatron : (16 March 2018 - 09:22 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw Oh my that sucks cold slag my friend. I am with Arazyr I hope you get out safe and sound and hope everything goes well.

Hoping for the best, @Tm_Silverclaw!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 March 2018 - 10:42 AM)

Yeah, minor dka, but still serious. Will be in overnight at least.

@  unluckiness : (16 March 2018 - 09:06 AM)

that's pretty serious

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 March 2018 - 07:16 AM)


@  Plokatron : (16 March 2018 - 06:54 AM)

Hope it's nothing serious Silver.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 March 2018 - 03:35 PM)

So... hey, an autobot without a weapon and his human pet just foiled our plans.

@  Bass X0 : (15 March 2018 - 03:13 PM)

Yes, Benbot, and this time no force in the universe will stop us.

@  Plokatron : (12 March 2018 - 05:32 PM)

By the Matrix! I'm rewatchin Animated and got to the part with Arcee asking who, what, when and where after Ratchet zapped her. I just finished BW and I can't help but hear Transmutate. (Am I the only person who never found her face spooky? Maybe it comes from watching Reboot and knowing Phong but her face looks more innocent than freakish.) Also yes I know why I'm hearing it it's the same women voicing em and I don't hear much about Susan Blu that much she ever at Botcons?

@  Xellos : (12 March 2018 - 11:16 AM)

Dunno, I loved it, but the conversation reminds me of a king of mid changes, Gundam SEED Destiny (BD and new dub soon, gonna force a rewatch). Part of that was the new MC Shinn was just so unlikable...

@  wonko the sane? : (12 March 2018 - 11:16 AM)

Turns out there is a way to throw out a trash can, but it involves a second, larger trash can.

@  Shrug : (12 March 2018 - 08:01 AM)

So, TFW went Quake crazy. Then The Allspark went Slash crazy. Has Seibertron had a recent figure popularity phase?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 March 2018 - 07:46 AM)

I rewatched it at the end of 2016 and just about everything anybody did in the first half was related to Satsuki's authoritarian rule and/or in reaction to it. That she never cared about building such a society beyond getting Ragyo distracted for a moment makes it weirdly pointless.

@  2018 : (12 March 2018 - 05:33 AM)

Well like, there's a ton of dropped plot points, the second half is completely different from the first half, and so on. It also is really bad at characterizing the cast beyond the first few eps and just becomes a non-stop slugfest.

@  Xellos : (12 March 2018 - 05:15 AM)

Hmm, I just thought KLK was meant to be that quirky. Enjoyed the series, but those Aniplex prices... One of the few I have actually bought.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 March 2018 - 03:05 AM)

"Dissonance" is an understatement of how awful the writing was.

@  2018 : (11 March 2018 - 09:51 PM)

They do nice animation but their writing is pretty messy. KLK especially was a trainwreck where they changed things on the fly and the result was a lot of dissonance.

@  Steevy Maximus : (11 March 2018 - 09:17 PM)

I'm STOKED for their Gridman project later this year!

@  Steevy Maximus : (11 March 2018 - 09:17 PM)

Man, between Little Witch Academia and catching up on Kill la Kill, I think I'll watch anything Trigger makes.

Harley is standing over Nightwing tied up while in her underwear while he's basically saying no and she's pushing it.

It's already too much for me. It's already reminding me too much of TKJ.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

We'll see, but it does bother me to see them be so slavish to the BTAS style...but with content that is well above where that show was targeted.  It seems obvious that this is an attempt to mitigate the increasing critical backlash to a LOT of recent DC Animated films with a big nostalgia play.


While the sequence with Nightwing bound and Harley in her underwear was clearly triggering some TKJ PTSD, I laughed HARD at Booster Gold's check in and offer for help with Nightwing's commentary (including gestures which wouldn't have flown on TV).

...is it wrong that I want to consider the upcoming "Batman and Harley Quinn" film to be part of the DCAU? Because I do.

THe next Batman film: Batman and Harley Quinn, done in a style strongly reminiscent of BTAS/NA:

Would have liked to seen Alreen or Tara come back for Harley at least to have more of a callback.

Nightwing, what have those monsters done to your rockin' mullet?

Judas Contract was really good. 


Considering the Show already did it, and didn't feel the need to add Damian

Sure would have been odd of the show to feel the need to add Damian two years before he was introduced as Damian Wayne and not just unnamed baby with questionable canonicity

I'm on board...tentatively. I love the animated series. Who doesn't. So the art style and Kevin Conroy voice kinda has me sold already.

But then Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil did do Killing Joke...and...well...we all know how that turned out.

So yeah, tentative...but I'm on board...for now.

After Starfire has demonstrated how she learns languages by kissing:

Kid Flash: Oh by the way, I speak some Spanish if you wanna learn that.

Speedy: 2nd year highschool french!

My thoughts: And that girl over there...fluent in just about everything else...just sayin'. *gets his camera ready*


And just finished Judas Contract.

I always felt it was a missed opportunity in the old Teen Titans show that the reason Terra got brought to the dark side was because she couldn't control her powers (intro ep). Slade gave her finer control by taking control of her body-ish (shown in the attack ep). So when she turned good again, she rejected the control and that's why she went out of control and brought the base down (final part). It seemed implied in the show but not outright said.

Judas Contract was messed up a bit by Brother Blood's machine not being symmetrical, after the fuss he said about that. Where was Raven in the machine?

Also, why bother bringing in a fake Jericho? And he was made invulnerable by the machine but still dies by headshot?

Whaaaaa?!? I was watching at a friend's and we had to leave so I didn't check! Holy cow!

Wait, is that implying that Brother Blood moved to Jericho's body? That's not that cool. Why would Jericho have healing powers anyway. I know his throat cut got healed in the comics so he was able to speak again but it turned him evil somehow.
