@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:11 PM)

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

Did you get the PC version?

 

If not, return it immediately. If you like the game mods will expand its lifetime at least tenfold, if not more.

I guess I'm assuming you have a computer good enough to run Skyrim, so if not I apologize.

 

I only suggest returning it in favor of the PC version because you said it was unopened, and, as I said before, in addition to the DLC you'd have access to a wide array of additional content through modding.

 

The PC version and all its DLC is available on Steam for forty bucks, IDK if that's more or less than what you played.

And, if you can't, the default version isn't that bad.  Not as horrifically wonky as Oblivion.

 

Just... save.  Save a lot. 'cause it's a Bethesda game and there will be bugs.  Terrible, terrible, game-breaking bugs.  And on console, I don't think there's anything you can do about it.  On PC, you can bring up the dev command line and possibly force a resolution to a broken quest, but I don't think there are dev options on console.

 

Another bonus to the Steam version is that you get integration with the Steam Workshop which will handle installing and updating mods for you, so that's nice, though you may still want to use an external mod manager.

I played it on PS3 and enjoyed it despite it not being meant for that console. Personally, I'd wait for the rerelease on next-gen consoles coming out next month if you can't afford a PC - you'll be able to get some select mods.

The best advice I could give would be to not piss Shield-Maiden Matilda off go back in time and tell yourself to buy the substantially prettier upgraded version of the same game that comes out next month. Unless your console of choice is the PS4, since that version won't have mod support. If gaming value at a lower price is your primary draw here, then disregard.

 

But really, just enjoy! Mods are great and give you more stuff, but you don't need them to enjoy the game. Skyrim is a big place. If you find a distraction along the way, see where it takes you. Get the house in Whiterun, since you will need a place to dump off your stuff when your inventory is overburdened.

If operating on 360, then sadly you cannot Mine 4 Fish.

 

As for general tips:

 

Don't trust Dalphnie

 

Skyrim kind of demands you learn a ranged skill of some kind.

 

Specialize, don't generalize. Spreading your points out early will lead to a more frustrating middle experience. Try to focus on three perk trees to start with, then branch out as you go along.

 

Since you're not on PC, keep in mind that making your skills "Legendary" will allow you to push your physical level up higher

 

Alchemy is a handy skill to have, since the alchemists in game barely stock any healing potions themselves.

 

Lockpicking and Speechcraft are dud perk trees and there's literally no reason to ever put a point in either

 

Unlike Oblivion, Daedra are rare this game. Even the Princes' quests are well and subtlety hidden in a majority of cases. As a result, expect any Daedra you do run across to give you a fight to remember.

 

Do not participate in the Giants' Space Program.

When you hit Level 10, it may be beneficial to at least begin the Dawnguard quest chain. You'll get fast access to Crossbows, which are slower firing then regular bows, but ignore 50% of enemy's armor. Unfortunately, without PC mods, bolts for said crossbow will be rare on the ground.

As for trees - depends on your character. You've got one handed and two handed perk trees. Also Light or Heavy armor perk trees. Third one is up to you - magic or crafting. Just be careful with early game crafting - it'll push your level up, which can increase the enemy power you come across and your combat skills can lag behind.

Mhm. Plus, without mods, you won't find yourself buried in hundreds of pounds of alchemic ingredients in short order.

This is Skyrim. "Tongues" means something radically different. The dialogue system has no checks to worry about, and in due time you'll be swimming in more stuff then a merchant can buy anyway, so there's no sense in the barter perks. As for lockpicking - you can pick a Master lock from the start of the game, so if you're good at the minigame there's no reason to dump points in that tree.

From the way it sounds, it may be a GOOD thing I don't run into them.  As long as I don't find the Dragon/Lich/Bear combo that I witnessed that one time.  Also... HATE hidden missions.  X(

 

Trust me, the Daedric missions are the exception. They come out of nowhere, and can seriously change the mood of the game.

Magic is kind of handicapped in the vanilla version. It's workable, but gets badly frustrating in mid game. It's entirely possible to go "battle mage", but you basically require the enchanting skill tree to make the most of it, specifically, you need to enchant the gear you use to buff your stats and regens. I usually end up rolling an archer/ninja, cause I enjoy (wayyyy too much.) killing folks at the end of their perceptual limits and watching them kind of ignoring the fact that their friends are literally dropping dead next to them.

All the good stuff seems to have drawbacks....

Mal... Two-handed, Light-armor, Magic.  Niki... One handed, Heavy Armor, Crafting.  Guy at work told me how one can grind up their blacksmith skills by making daggers.... and then make a scat ton of coin selling them.  Or just, y'know, stabbing ppl with 'em.  I assume that's the kind of Grinding you refer to?  Kind of like with CoH when you could re-run the sewer mission and end up at Lvl-24, bypassing all the missions, and have no idea what to do next.

Being overencumbered sucks.

Kewl.  Does kind of annoy that you needs to allocate points to lockpick to get to the good stuff in Fallout.

I shall take your word for it.

Sweetness!  XD

Yeah, except in Skyrim's case, you grind out Iron Daggers, get a bunch of levels, step outside and find yourself face to snout with an Ancient Dragon, and you have less then 50 points in any combat skill.

Yeah, you need to grind a handful of levels on blacksmith, then let it sit while you go raid some dungeons and enchant some equipment. Or just go wander around, even in vanilla there's enough creatures and bandits spawning that you should get a healthy work out walking halfway across skyrim.

Which is why PC users modded the game. Between "immersive patrols" and "Immersive creatures" you can't swing a greatsword without hitting SOMETHING, and just walking to the next way point sees all kinds of bandits, bears and monsters. Hell, Immersive creatures will randomly spawn ore elementals when you go mining. If you live through the encounter, you end up with a lot more resources than you hoped for.
