@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:52 AM)

The recent ongoing series didn't start until what, 2013?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:51 AM)

Then was continued as a five-issue mini-series ("Local Heroes"), then came a 16-issue maxi-series ("The Dark Age"), plus a couple of standalone specials and two-parters...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:50 AM)

It started out as a series, but due to Busiek's health problems (?), it was put on hold after six issues, then got relaunched with a new #1, had several delays (again because of Busiek's health issues), was discontinued after #22...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:49 AM)

I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of Astro City becoming a series of graphic novels now. I mean, it's not like it's always been a steady ongoing series.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

Anyone here reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City?

Remember the Noid? He steals pizzas!

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

@  Echowarrior : (15 January 2019 - 11:03 PM)

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2019 - 08:49 AM)

@  Xellos : (15 January 2019 - 06:22 AM)

I used to use a pic like that as my avatar for years, but that... is a secret.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 02:07 AM)

Is Flatland an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (14 January 2019 - 11:16 PM)

@Xellos Every time I see you post, I picture Xellos' infuriating smug grin and finger waggling with the "sore wa hi*mi*tsu*desu <3"

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

Congrats and condolences where appropriate.  All of my Premium pulls have been dupes, as was my 3-Star.  The 3-Star did come with a Silver Ray Booster, though... pity the only 3-Star healer I have is a Reflector equipped with a Silver version of his G1 core already. ;) Someday, though, it'll be nice.  4-Star Crystal also already redeemed for a Cutthroat, and it justified keeping the Lab open.

 

Cutthroat was disappointing in that he wasn't a needed combiner component (at least, he isn't a combiner component yet...) and that he didn't impress a lot of my senior peers in our Alliance but during his launch Event I walked away with the 2-Star and 3-Star versions of him and they have impressed me.  At first they didn't, but besides getting them leveled-up the explanation of his Ability was... confusing.  Once I realized I need to either "bomb" where my guys were or were about to be, then he came in pretty handy.

 

I mean, preventing damage is usually better than healing in most games.

 

Note: Edited because I re-read it and was worried some of it was unclear.

To quote the famous words, "Any new four star, is a good one!".

 

My next two premiums were also two star dupes. Should get a three star soon though.

Yeah, I'm nearing a three star, but only premium dupes so far.

I'm going to need my alliance to basically finish the event before I get the four star.

with a new 4 Star Windblade and 4 Star Laser Optimus Prime, I have enough 4 stars to fill out a second team. It'll take a long while before they become stronger than all my top 3-Stars but whatever. Just reached level 64 so no idea how long it will take but then the HQ gets upgraded and then the ship and it's a new game.

Most bases I attack have 5 build bots and I have 2. Is that because they're all buying them or was it just my bad spending gold coins early on?
Woooo!

The latter.  Even with spending a Cybercoin on a Bombshell Crystal early on (which had a Straxus) and one or two times speeding up timers (only to later realize I had plenty of time and should have waited), I've got four Build Bots, and have had them long enough I don't remember my exact HQ or player Level when it happened. To hazard a guess, I think I got Build Bot 4 around HQ Level 12.  Anyway, I think I have a slightly higher Player Level than you, about the same amount of 4-Stars, and I'm at HQ 15 with... maybe a quarter of my Walls maxed out and a third of my buildings?  Sorry, all of this is off the top of my head as I'm about to leave the house. ^^'

Sigh. My alliance slacked off today and now there's basically no chance of me getting a four star this weekend. I'm currently ranked 5 when normally I'm 12 or 13 out of the alliance. So frustrating that we can straight up get a four star in one weekend and everyone else is busy with real life and/or waiting for everyone else to do the work.

I'm guessing a lot were already halfway to a four star crystal when the event started and that's why there was a big drop of activity. I had like 30 crystal shards and needed us to max out the event.

Interesting.  I don't think Nightbird fared as well on the Decepticon side of things.  Arcee doesn't just share a head/color-swapped character model with her, but also Ability, right?  The hologram?

 

Though that Ability can be great if you have the skill/luck to make sure it not only triggers a Guard Outpost early but that it sends them charging off into the wrong direction and/or endures enough damage to more or less waste the guard's Ability.  Oh, and I do love Nightbird with Brake-Neck to back her up; he's the 'con with the Execute! Ability, so the hologram sets up guards to get snipped.

With Combiners, the only thing that matters is what level the combiner is, and whether or not you have all the components as three or four star versions. Leveling up the individual component bots won't make the combiner any stronger or weaker.
