@  wonko the sane? : (28 February 2020 - 10:37 AM)

Console or PC?

@  Benbot : (28 February 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Is Skyrim worth playing in 2020?

@  Paladin : (28 February 2020 - 07:45 AM)

when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

@  Nevermore : (28 February 2020 - 04:45 AM)

Did I say that? I must have been joking.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 11:46 PM)

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

@  Nevermore : (27 February 2020 - 09:07 PM)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Neat.

@  Darth Gonzo : (27 February 2020 - 05:53 PM)

Tarn is in Cyberverse.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 10:24 AM)

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 09:03 AM)

I think you'll be save in Greenland.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 08:32 PM)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 07:28 PM)

Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

So, the system upgrade for Skyrim is coming up.

I assume they'll be releasing a players guide for it.

Is it safe to assume that the guide will be compatible with the old game?

Wow... forgot I even made this.

SO.... how tricky IS the build system in the game to figure out?  I watched a few tutorials on fudge muppet and I cannot for the life of me understand what they talkin-bout.

The Skyrim vids aren't like the Fallout vids, with all the stats and the perks named at the bottom.

The build system is pretty simple, really. All the different skills have an associated skill tree. You can buy perks on those tree's if your skill meets the pre-requisite level AND you've purchased the perk before it. So you can choose from any tree so long as you don't mind starting at the bottom every time. Generally speaking, the higher the perk on the tree, the better the perk is, but it also corresponds to a higher level in the skill.

 

Folks usually build as they will, and take a few basic perks from a lot of the trees. I usually take the first perk in lockpicking, and healing magic, and specialise in a weapon skill, forging and enchanting.

The main problem I have with skill trees is that I'll start a game wanting to be an mage-warrior. I wind up being a sneaking type who stabs people in the back. Oh...well...yeah, except I need some ranged attacks. So I guess stealth archer is the way to go. Too bad I already spent all those perks on restoration magic and smithing!

It took me a couple times to figure out, but it seems like maxing out skill trees for Sneaking and Archery are the way to go. Maybe pop a few points in restoration magic. Never know when you'll run out of potions.

And actually, speech isn't totally useless. You can invest in stores so they can give you more money and you can sell any type of thing at any shop...like sell potions to the smith. Very usefull.
...
...
Except by the time you can do that, you're probably not hurting for money really.

Yeah, hug Speech. Just do Sneaking and Archery. You'll be alright!

I absolutely love being able to defeat boss-type characters with maybe 4-5 hits tops...all before they even know I'm there.

I also wish I had a dime for every time this happened:

What's that sound? Something's right behind me! Oh crap! A draugr got the drop on me. Oh...wait! My status indicator says I'm still hidden. But...he brushed right up against me...and his dead partner is right next to him...and he's looking right...at...me! But he doesn't see me? Well, okay then. Let's get out Auriel's Bow, recharge it for extra measure, draw back the string aaaaand...*THUNK*! Most satisfying sound...ever!

 

I can kill giants and maybe even one or even two (if I'm lucky) of it's mammoth friends before any of them know I'm there. 

 

I know there's a whole meme and air of derision about stealth archers...but people wouldn't do it if it wasn't so damn affective!

Well.... I started it.

I took a nap last night 'cuz some telemarketer woke me up at 2pm, and instead of sleeping 3 hours.... slept for 6.  X(  So, I DLed everything, then started up.

Decided to try something simple... mentally dug-out an old Star Wars OC and went from there.  Got overencumbered already thanks to the clothes/pots.  While I'm sure there's nothing on-par with a Mandaloran, a general 'barbarian' or something should be good.

PS: ah snuck past a BAER!!!

I went melee. It gave me some trouble on tougher enemies like dragons with their stupid one-hit kill move, but I still did decently. Next time I think I'm gonna mix melee and ranged.

 

Also, DO NOT GO FULL MAGE. Oh, they're good at mid-levels, but at lower and higher levels? Pfft. You're better off investing your levels in health (obviously) and stamina (so you can move around quicker and use more powerful physical moves) than magicka, which means most of the high MP offensive spells are going to drain a big chunk out of your low magicka bar and you're left defenseless unless you have a melee or ranged weapon. They also don't scale, meaning the higher levels you get, even the more powerful spells won't do as much damage. The only forms of magic worth using are restoration (again, you never know when you'll run out of health potions) and enchanting and the latter isn't really "magic" in the way conjuration or destruction are. It makes your weapons and armor more powerful, which you absolutely need to do if you want to survive at higher or even mid-levels. If you are crazy enough to go full mage or want to impose a challenge on yourself, you should focus on conjuration more than any others to summon things to do the fighting for you, since, again, you'll be basically useless by yourself.

 

In Skyrim, you're better off as a melee fighter with good Enchanting and Restoration skills than a pure mage, and you're better off being a sneaky ranged rogue with good Enchanting and Restoration skills than a melee fighter or a mage. Also, as useful as dabbling in Alteration for temporary armor buffs or Illusion for temporary stealth buffs sounds, it's not worth it since the spells from those that are actually good only come at high levels.

 

TL;DR: Mages in Skyrim suck.

Mages suck in skyrim.

 

Caveat: unless you mod the game. I get why you wouldn't want to the first few times around, but there are plenty of mods out there which iron out the kinks to magic, add new content, and generally make it more feasible archtype than the vanilla game.
