The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 09:20 AM)

Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man because it was mostly set far away from Earth?

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 September 2020 - 08:49 AM)

I'm learning so much-

@  Maruten : (18 September 2020 - 04:21 AM)

At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Red Dwarf of Transformers? An interesting, innovative and genuinely funny series that descended into a self referential mess of cliches that continues long after it should have been put out to pasture and rendered nerly everyone thoroughly unlikeable? That seems about right.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 01:59 PM)

MTMTE and Lost Light are the Red Dwarf of Transformers stories, as opposed to the others which are more like Star Wars and Star Trek.

@  Kalidor : (17 September 2020 - 01:37 PM)

Anyone in CONUS want a Skylynx for $100 shipped?

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 September 2020 - 01:34 PM)

Maybe an acquired taste in that's in that it's from a fan raised on the UK run where Transformers wasn't taken so seriously in many stories, especially some Earthforce standalones.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2020 - 09:47 AM)

so, terrible?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Yeah I think at that point Lost Light is just the '86 movie without the soundtrack.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 September 2020 - 02:28 AM)

So, exctly what Triangleman just said.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 12:36 AM)

A few of the same characters.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 12:07 AM)

Now having actually read Galaxies #10, I don't actually see what it has in common with Lost Light at all besides featuring Ultra Magnus, Chromedome, and a spaceship.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 05:33 PM)

So, it's exactly like Lost Light, then.

@  Bass X0 : (16 September 2020 - 01:52 PM)

What if Lost Light was stripped bare of its charm and humor? Galaxies #10 is the answer.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 01:49 PM)

I didn't mean "*exactly* 15 years ago and no other time."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 September 2020 - 12:27 AM)

I mean, the comment was about a linewide gimmick of 15 years ago, not a gimmick only present in a minority of toys from that year.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:14 AM)

I'd like a western take on the UT for it's twentieth, like a annual CG or anime movie on Netflix that is a condensed retelling similar to the film Macross/Robotech: Do You Remember Love.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:11 AM)

Giant Planet had them, Energon had a few. I've been disappointed in Siege for not having something for the Micromasters, Earthrise has with the base bots but they've been wasted here.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 September 2020 - 10:47 PM)

Wasn't 15 years ago Cyber Keys rather than Minicons?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 September 2020 - 09:38 PM)

By and large, even the worst Minicons have some unique engineering or design elements. The nostalgia factor aside, Micromasters got pretty samey after you got several, especially the "proper" 89 series.

@  unluckiness : (15 September 2020 - 07:13 PM)

There's certainly a load of crummy ones to sift through

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2020 - 05:29 PM)

Or both. There's some overlap.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2020 - 03:19 PM)

People either hated minicons or became completely addicted to them.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 September 2020 - 03:17 PM)

A properly-planned theme, or as people called it 15 years ago, a stupid linewide baby toy gimmick that ruins the toys.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 September 2020 - 01:39 PM)

Look on the bright side: at least Kingdom has a properly-planned theme to its name unlike Power of the Primes being a hilariously transparent junk drawer for the PWT, and with letdown Prime toys to boot.

@  -LittleAutob... : (15 September 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Oh that makes sense-

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2020 - 01:32 PM)

To renew their copyrights on all their names, characters and series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (15 September 2020 - 01:32 PM)

Strange.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 September 2020 - 01:08 PM)

War for Cybertron trilogy is a strange thing, from pre Earth to Earth to Beast Wars.
What was their plan again?

@  Bass X0 : (15 September 2020 - 12:40 PM)

Fall! FALL!! I would have waited an eternity for this; it’s Autumn, Prime...

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 September 2020 - 11:22 AM)

Wow...harsh truths!

@  Trpodeca : (15 September 2020 - 07:29 AM)

Saw Age of Extinction. Not Rise of Skywalker 10/10

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 05:14 PM)

So not a murderer, just a cheapass. Wanted the whole kit for the value of the batteries.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:41 PM)

You can't force other people to sell; ao despite abundance the prices are high. I'm just a small scale hobbyist, I'm not looking to cash in just help other folks with their... uh, passion.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:28 PM)

It's like diamonds, artificial rarity boosting the price,

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:25 PM)

I call bull carp on that. There's a HUGE secondary market, and gently used pieces go for tens of thousands.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:24 PM)

They lose a lot of their value when not mint in sealed body.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:04 PM)

I could probably stand to part with 2 or 3 of them. I've been collecting them for years anyway.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 11:45 AM)

Coming soon to kijiji, wonko's kidney.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I threw a bunch of lawn and garden tools up on kijiji, today someone messaged me and said they wanted them all. They haven't even tried to haggle or anything. I suspect I'm about to be robbed or otherwise ripped off.

@  Classic Cybe... : (11 September 2020 - 11:03 AM)

Proud dad moment: my 6 year old daughter telling her 3 yr old brother that Prime is the leader because he has the matrix, but Hot Rod gets it next.

I went away because I got too caught up in PnR to the point it was messing my psyche up.

 

As for the talking, it's 'cos I don't use Skype. I'm fine talking here, though.

10. Kirby Super Star/Ultra - Easily the best Kirby game, especially since you can play as Meta Knight in the remake

9. Super Mario 64 - Some of the best nostalgia I have

8. Pokemon Red and Blue - This is pure nostalgia, since the games that came out after - particularly the second, fifth and sixth gens - are much better programmed and designed. Still, I'm going to pick it up on the Virtual Console and hope it doesn't disappoint me.

7. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - I DO think OoT is the greatest game of all time, but it's not my number one favorite. There's a difference.

6. Banjo-Tooie - Banjo-Kazooie is one of the funniest games ever made, and the sequel is even funnier. They managed to get so much adult humor past the censors that it's basically the Rocko's Modern Life of video games.

5. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Definitely the creepiest Zelda, and I love it because of that.

4. The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker -  I used to play it with my best friend before he moved, so I'm sentimental for it.

3. Mega Man 9 - I love a LOT of Mega Man games, but considering that this was the game that brought me back into Mega Man, it's a personal favorite.

2. Pokemon Black and White - While X and Y have outclassed it gameplay-wise, Black and White still has the best characters and the best story in the series. The characters faces look more visually distinct from each other instead of having the same tall, thin eyes from the previous gens. The Pokemon designs were also improved - they were simpler than the less overly-detailed and busy than the designs from Gen IV, but their designs were just detailed or unique enough to keep them from falling into the same bland and forgettable designs Gen II suffered from.

1. Pokemon X and Y - These are easily the best Pokemon game in terms of gameplay. The addition of the Fairy type was a much-needed type to restore balance by making Dragons less OP than they were in Gens IV and V. Mega Evolution was pretty cool as well. Unfortunately, while the story was still good, it wasn't quite as good as BW's story.

I like Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper, some of the Digimon RPGs, Kingdom Hearts and Infamous - well, okay, I only really like Second Son because Delsin actually has a personality and Cole didn't. I can't think of any others off the top of my head right now, but I bet I'll be able to when I get back from vacation and look at my entire video game library.

 

Basically, I like Nintendo's first party stuff the most, but I go with Playstation for a little bit of good first party stuff and for all the good third party stuff Nintendo usually doesn't get.
