And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

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.

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:36 AM)

cuz i wanna fight a boat

@  SG Roadbuster : (15 June 2019 - 09:35 AM)

if we must have another zelda character, id want the king of red lion

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

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

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  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.

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

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)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  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).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Happy birthday @Pinkcolliebot

@  Pinkcolliebot : (07 June 2019 - 12:03 PM)

Today's My Birthday!!!

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 June 2019 - 03:16 AM)

Think how many copies of Optimus Prime's brain could fit on that.

TF Pulp is proud to present the first part in an ongoing series - Simon Furman's 17-part alternate universe story from Titan's movie comic, never published outside the UK!

Read the first issue here!

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Yeah I'm wondering that myself. I mean no one official seems interested in collecting/publishing them, so my personal set of ethics is fine, but I'm worried the official stance is otherwise.

I wouldn't be too presumptuous.

 

In any case, Titan stopped it's Transformers license, so maybe that's why this was put up?

On one hand I'll be eager to read this when it gets to the point where the TPBs cut off, so I genuinely appreciate TFPulp doing this. On the other hand I do think we need to support the official releases when they're not unreasonable, and Amazon has the TPB this chapter is in for as low as 72 cents.

So let me understand this--posting scans of a Transformers manga that came out last week is "OMG YES WE NEED MORE". Posting scans of an out-of-print UK comic from nearly ten years ago is "can this be ethically justified?"

 

I'm not trying to play "gotcha" games here. I've never seen anyone worry about the copyright on manga, and outside of not being from Japan I honestly don't see the difference.

Yeah, personally, my logic was:

- This comic is six/seven years old
- The first twelve parts were reprinted once, six/seven years ago, in books only published in the UK, and the last five have never been reprinted
- Titan no longer holds the UK TF comic license, and IDW is no longer doing movie comics

I've got the first eight issues as well, but those aren't going on TF Pulp since IDW did reprint those.

Would TF Pulp continue to post the remain Titan movieverse comics (ROTF, DOTM, AOE) as well?

 

What of the Animated and Prime ones too?

It's a shame the comic slowly lost this level of quality. You can tell with the first two movies at least they were really putting the effort in and hit upon this AU concept is a way to tell original movie linked stories without stepping on the toes of anything the sequel might do. But then (I assume due to declining sales and in turn budget) the comics just got really phoned, with stuff like Animated, Prime and AOE seemingly written by folks with the smallest amount of knowledge of what they were writing.

It's ironic that a lot of Simon Furman's best post-G1 Transformers work appeared only in a UK TF magazine that barely anyone knows about.

Ironically, Twilight's Last Gleaming the story is probably the weakest part of the overall Twilight's Last Gleaming the arc. By Parts 3 and 4, it's stalling for time and you get Bumblebee VS Megatron and Mikaela VS Frenzy for what feels like aaaaaages, before a very abrupt ending in upcoming Part 5. It could do with being 4 parts to keep all the moving pieces moving right. That cliffhanger for Part 4 is still a doozy though. That said, this was coming out around the same time as All Hail Megatron and both are trying similar tacks, but damn if this 51-page serial for kids isn't doing it better. The pace wot I just criticised is much better than AHM, leaner and meaner; the cast all feel like they're doing something and the Decepticon's conquest feels like a proper conquest.

The weirdest bit, Shane McCarthy has said he had to dial back a lot of the devastation at Hasbro's command but Titan's allowed to give actual death tolls for human troops we see getting bombed in Part 2! In the one for kids! Was Hasbro UK asleep?

 

I do wonder when Furman got told "hey keep doing this for another year" - Starscream's scheming would not lead anywhere much if he wasn't sticking around for 12 more issues so surely rewrites happened, but when?

It's a real pity that either Titan followed suit (or the accountants slashed them to the point where they felt they had to) or Hasbro woke up in 2010.

 

Plotwise, check that page 2 out: Ironhide's in "protoform" now he's dropped his Payload van disguise and Ratchet is arming up by sucking up nearby ore for mass. This feels weird in retrospect. So many little bits of this run, and Titan's prequels, are clearly Furman having little idea of how bits work in the first film - and the film didn't care - and figuring it out as he goes. Most of it will be contradicted in 2009 and you would not do this if you wrote something like Twilight's now. It's one of those little bits of adaptation decay you don't see much of in the corporate synergy days and I love it, it makes Titan feel fundamentally a bit different.
