"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 PM)

King Nine, however, will not return.

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

FINALLY! It's official!

http://www.rockstarg...eadredemption2/

 

Trailer coming Thursday at 11AM, so not much to chew on yet. But I've suffered through so many disappointing E3s waiting for this announcement.

 

I hope Destiny 2 comes out in the spring or summer, I can't imagine how I could divide my time between those two...

Did you never play the original?

 

Nothing in the GTA series has ever been as fun as RDR. By far my favorite game of the last generation. I'm about halfway through a replay now, since it was made backwards compatible on the Xbox One a couple months ago.

My second favorite game of the last generation, but it has my single favorite video game moment of all time (and if you played you know exactly when it is). This is especially saying something, since normally I COMPLETELY CAN'T STAND OPEN WORLD GAMES. Something about "Red Dead" just feels completely right in nearly every way. Can't wait for the sequel.

Yep.

As much as I liked Red Dead Redemption and am psyched for this... I'm going to be "that guy".

Why is this "Red Dead Redemption 2" and not "Red Dead 3" or "Red Dead [word that starts with 'r']"

Red Dead Redemption is a masterpiece that flies in the face of conventional Rockstar developing (I still love the fact that you can't engage the Prostitutes at all, given you are a married man...but you can hog tie said Prostitute and strap her to train tracks for a gruesome death) and was just an amazing game.

 

Got it as a wedding gift, actually. I spent a entire night - TWELVE HOURS - playing Poker. Not the game, just POKER.

I love the fact that it's not just possible, but there's actually an achievement for it, called "Dastardly."

 

But speaking of that, another big improvement (for me) over GTA is that you can play RDR as a Clint Eastwood or a Lee Van Cleef--you're not forced to be a bad guy like in GTA. I chose to be a "good guy" (well, relatively), and tried to maintain my honor as much as possible, so I never killed nobody who didn't need killing.

 

So, the day some lady on the trail stopped me to help her, and it turned out she was lying so so she and her partners could rob me, well, that's the day I collected the achievement.

Nobody's really a "bad guy" in GTA anyways.  Just various levels of craziness.

The only one with moral fiber would be CJ from San Andreas. Everyone else has been an example of the worst scum of the Human Condition. It's to Rockstar's credit that they can make these people sympathetic.

 

Especially Trevor.

The three protags really helped spread out the gameplay. Franklin, like Niko and CJ before him, just didn't seem the "hire a prostitute, kill her, and get the money back" kind of person. Obviously if you wronged them you'd be in trouble, but they didn't actively go out looking to start anything.

 

I just wonder how GTA Online's price inflation rate will find purchase in this game.

 

$40,000 in the early 1900s for a really fast horse?

Even though I love Rockstar games for the most part and love westerns, I could never get into Red Dead Redemption when I tried to play it. Then I spent the last few years thinking "I'll give it another shot when it comes out on PC" which I don't think ever happened? Maybe I'll track down where I put my 360 copy one of these days. At any rate, more Rockstar, more western. Hard not to be excited about that.
