@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 January 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  Patch : (23 January 2020 - 06:30 PM)

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 02:06 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 January 2020 - 08:42 AM)

Disregard this.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

I took one step beyond the outer limits to the twilight zone.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

First off, can a mod please close or lock the previous two polls?

 

----

 

Alright, Tonight around 7pm will be my stream of Sonic Generations, and will run for about 3 hours.

Sunday will be Transformers: War For Cybertron, also starting around 7pm and I'm hoping to at least beat the Decepticon Campaign.

Tuesday's midday stream will be Little Inferno. Since it is a short game I should be able to do it all in one sitting.

Next Friday, I am aiming to beat the rest of War for Cybertron's single player campaign. I'll get back to Sonic Generations in September since its a longer game.

Next Sunday will be of course whatever my followers vote for.

-----

Now for the games for next Sunday's vote:

Since I get comments about 'not knowing some/all of the games' I've decided to provide links for each game, so that if you don't have a clear favorite for me to play you can vote for whatever you think looks the most interesting.

Fallout New Vegas – all DLC - http://store.steampo...ck/app/2028016/
Life Is Strange - Episode 1- http://store.steampo...eck/app/319630/
Citizens of Earth - http://store.steampo...com/app/258910/
Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition - http://store.steampo...eck/app/211420/
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition - http://store.steampo....com/app/32360/
X-Com: Enemy Unknown - http://store.steampo...eck/app/200510/
Jade Empire - http://store.steampo...d.com/app/7110/
The Bard's Tale - http://store.steampo....com/app/41900/
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 - http://store.steampo...com/app/208580/
L. A. Noire - http://store.steampo...eck/app/110800/

----

Also before anyone asks: Why KOTOR2? Because it was recently and massively updated in Steam, including Steam Workshop options, so this will have mods such as cut content and better graphics. As I've only played the original sloppy and rushed retail version, this will be something new and unique for me as this will be a play-through of the hopefully superior version of the game. Also maybe potentially raising awareness that its gotten these updates.

This thing just will not let me comment.

 

This boss looks worse than Biolizard. Omochao is annoying but for this boss ii can see why it might be needed.

 

ooh, I like this level. (Speed Highway)

 

That frigging GUN truck.   :D

 

Sonic Heroes was boring as heck.

 

I love how that Sonic 06 level trolls the player. They knew everyone wanted to get that level over with and forget that game happened.

I don't know how many of these I could make it to. Sunday night is usually family night. But since you seem to be recording the streams...an eventual Mass Effect stream might be kinda cool...1,2 or 3.

I'm hopelessly addicted to that darn thing!

I think atm I only have ME2 on my computer, and I don't yet know how to stream my PS3. They're possibility but probably a 'next year' thing.

 

Sunday is my 'big stream', as Saturday too friends have obligations then. Tomorrow I'll be doing Little Inferno, either mid day or evening, not sure yet. Then Friday night I'll be doing the rest of WFC Single player campaign. As mentioned in a previous thread, Next month is more 'pot luck' with just random games I wanna play, October is Halloween Theme month, November is Fallout Month (First week is gonna be Tactics, as I've never played it, and the rest is going to be FO4) December... not sure, possibly more FO4 alternated with potential Christmas-y/wintery games. (Might be doing Saints Row 4's Christmas DLC as one of the Shorter games, and if I get it, probably Visceral Clean Up Santa's Workshop.)

These polls seem to get diminishing returns... -_-

 

Anyway, based on what few votes I did get, Monkey Island is the winner.

 

So the new schedule will be:

 

8/28: WFC - Autobot Campagin

8/30: Secret of Monkey Island

9/1:  Sonic Generations

Yeah, from here on out, I'm gonna reduce things to 5 choices. See if that helps things any.

 

I'm thinking next month is gonna be more or less 'point and click adventure month' somewhat starting with Monkey Island and Fridays being Life if Strange. Sundays will still be fans choice, and Tuesdays will be mostly some quirky games since Little Inferno went over well, and most of them are PnCA types like Monkey Island.

 

October I have something special with my first crossover, which will be hosted on their stream for several reasons and be exclusively on Saturdays, so October I'll be doing 4 streams a week.
